Week One Hobby and Movie Nights
On Tuesday evening, we had a hobby night where a handful of Scholars and staff got together on Zoom to show off our hobbies. Of the people who showed up, most had a hobby related to art, one Scholar sang and I presented some of my models made out of thin sheets of steel. It was interesting to see what people presented.
On Wednesday evening, we had movie night. The selected movie was Star Wars: A New Hope, which was a movie that I suggested. We watched the movie over Zoom, and I was surprised that the quality was better than I expected. I’m used to using my iPad for Zoom, which does not seem to stream video very well—I would not recommend using one to watch even short videos over Zoom. This was the first time in over a decade that I got to watch A New Hope, and I highly enjoyed it.
