Aahh, April is flying by so fast! I don’t feel ready for May, which is when I need to prepare for an Anime con, a possible trip to Pennsylvania, and incoming summer interns. Eeeeep. Here’s what I’ve been up to the past couple weeks though.
When it was announced that we were doing a developers outing to Top Golf, I wasn’t that excited. I’m really not interested in golf, but I signed up anyway. I ended up having a blast.
If I had to describe Top Golf, it’d be a driving range + target range + bar. It’s basically a driving range, but you’re a few stories up and hitting down to a field with large holes. Each golf ball has a chip in it, so it knows where it lands and awards you points depending on which hole you hit and how close to the center of it. Each bay also has chairs and tables where you can order food and drinks.
I haven’t hit a golf ball since… high school? So I didn’t really know what I was doing. Looking around, I saw at least half of my coworkers looking awkward, and then I didn’t feel so bad ;) One of my teammates lent me an extra golf glove he had though, which made people think I was so pro. They were sadly mistaken when they saw me actually swing the golf club.
They also mixed up the teams, so you’re with people you normally don’t work with, and we rotated around to play against different teams. Overall, a ton of fun! It was great hanging out with people I don’t normally see, and Top Golf was actually fun to do.
