For those who haven’t been effected by Destiny 2 you might not know about it’s addictive nature, the flare players compete for or the headsets that players wear to connect them with fellow players in their own cities and around the world. Yes, your boyfriend and his 30/40 something pals could be playing a six-person raid with a 15 year old boy named Jayden who lives in Idaho or Ian the 18 year old in England who drags his fellow players for having shitty wi-fi (aka McDonald’s wi-fi). What a time to be alive! All the while, the widows and widowers of Destiny 2 wonder when they’ll have their TVs back or when their significant other will come to bed.
Catch Up On ALL The Shows, Podcasts and Movies!
Now’s the time to binge watch, while he/she is on the other TV, curl up with that laptop or in another room and catch up on all the shows and podcasts he/she won’t watch with you.
- Handmaid’s Tale
- The Keepers
- Rewatch Outlander and tune in this week for the premiere of Season 3!
- Great British Baking Show
- All the HangOutlander shows/podcasts!
Take a Class!
I’m ready to indulge the fantasy of auditioning for the Great American Baking Show but pretty sure I might wanna learn a few things about fondant and sugar art and other baker-ly things before I get too ahead of myself. Now that Destiny 2 is here, it’s the perfect time to sign up for a local baking class and make that dream of meeting Mary Berry come true!
Some online baking classes I found:
- The Kitchn’s Baking School! FREE!
- Wilton’s Online Baking Classes – starting from 9.95! Yes, the grandmother of baking supplies, icing tips and frosting bags, has taken their classes online!
- Skill Share’s Baking Classes – learn from real bakers online!
Join an Embroidery Club
My fellow Destiny widow-friend, Brookes turned me on to mail-order embroidery clubs, wherein you sign up, throw down a reoccurring monthly credit card charge and you are sent a new pattern and supplies in return. It’s like Christmas every month when I open up the surprise design from Cozy Blue! Try a subscription club or buy some patterns online. Here’s a few good ones:
See ya couch potatoes, head off to a local Yoga studio, learn a new exercise, join a six week bootcamp or anything to get moving for a few minutes. You can also do free at-home options like the one I suggested from my New Year, New Challenge post in January, Yoga with Adrienne’s 30 Day Challenge.
Set up the perfect space!
Whether you want to overhaul the bedroom or set up the perfect home office, now’s the time. While he/she is blasting guardians and gathering glimmer (I had to ask, I don’t know what this stuff is), you can drown out of the sounds of his 6-person online raiding party by blasting some music and rearranging furniture.
Why not go ahead and plan meet-ups with your other Destiny 2 widow friends? We’ve joked about created an equally annoying habit like group yodeling or perhaps a group creative movement dance class in front of the communal tv, or maybe train for a local 10k? Who knows, we’ve got time on your hands to decide!
And to all the significant others (like my boyfriend) who is kind enough to limit his Destiny playing to his own house, thank you! But, really I might take up one of those Baking Classes in the meantime.
Good luck Destiny 2 widows!
