On August 11 th, 2020, at 12:00 PM, I signed on to Zoom for a video session. While I
missed the Rules of Respect, I did join in time for the question, which was “if you could
be any animal in the world, what would you be?” Afterwards, they played charades, with
a theme of animals, and then colored wooden animal figurines they got in an activity kit.
However, while the participants enjoyed, I had a hard time handling the high levels of
noise and chaos, and I felt it was best to leave early.
Despite having a few technical issues pop up, and some difficulty in following what’s
going on, I feel I might have enjoyed the charades game were I actively participating
instead of merely observing. On the other hand, I’m not sure I would want to participate
in the figurine coloring, at least not with a bunch of other people—if there’s too much
noise, I can’t focus. But if the noise was not an issue, I’d be willing to try a game of
charades, and I can do coloring on my own.
