This is a new game based on a weekly activity I did in a couple of former classes I was in.

Basically the way it works is at the beginning of class we'd go around the room and each person would share their rose - something good going on in their life, and their thorn - something not so good.

The things you share can be as big or as small as you want!

I'll start to give you an example:

Rose: I watched Aladdin and Frozen 2 with my best friend today.
Thorn: my summer choir would've been having our concert tonight, but the semester wasn't able to happen this year due to Covid :(

^ This is a cool idea.

Rose: I've been able to spend more time with my sister lately, and she knows that I miss my book club. So she suggested we have our own mini book club, just the two of us, to discuss books together.

Thorn: It's been nearly 3 weeks and I haven't received a reply to the letter I sent to my grandmother. I may have to contact the care home to be sure that she actually received it.

Ooh I like this idea too!

Rose: I'm working on setting up my online shop where I can sell my paintings, just as a side gig for now.

Thorn: I'm around the general public all day at my main job, and I'm afraid I'll eventually get the virus. The vast majority of people who come in are wearing masks (thank god!). But I'm still nervous about it.

Rose: It was announced that Once On This Island, one of my favorite Broadway shows, is being adapted as a movie!

Thorn: Since it was only just announced, it's gonna inevitably be a long time before it actually happens, and I'm already impatient...

^^ Oh my god! That's so cool about Once On This Island. I was actually in that musical at the Hangar Theater when I was a kid. That's a blast from the past. Also, this is a super cool idea.

Rose: I finally finished updating my website, changing the color palette, updating the profile picture, and updating all of the social banners across all social media platforms.

Thorn: It was such an exhausting workday, it's 8:17PM, and I have a headache from using my brain since 9:30AM.

^^^ WAIT I just realized we're from the SAME town! (I speculated that when you mentioned The Piggery!) I saw Once On This Island at the Hangar ages ago and then the Broadway revival 2 years ago!

Rose: I found out that one of my favorite composers, Jim Papoulis, is getting a documentary movie made! That's super exciting to me especially considering I've met him twice and even got to sing the world premiere of one of his songs that will (presumably) be featured in the film!

Thorn: My room is super disorganized. I really should straighten up but I'm not motivated...

Rose: I had a nice evening watching DVDs and chilling with snacks.
Thorn: I was hoping that soon, I'd be able to start being slightly more social, but I found out today that during the last week, there has been quite a sharp increase in Covid cases in the area where I live :(

This is a super sweet idea. Also such a small world that you guys are from the same place!

Rose: I was able to have a sleep-in and then hang out in bed playing Animal Crossing. Also, a couple of packages came on a Saturday which is unusual!

Thorn: The dog kept us up last night when he wouldn't stay in his bed. He kept trying to get in the human bed and I'm worried that letting him in sometimes in the mornings is confusing him. I'm feeling like I'm going to let him and myself down by not having good skills with dog training.

Rose: I got talking to a really nice lady in a Facebook group earlier, and it seemed like we have a lot in common, and we exchanged email addresses.
Thorn: When I woke up today, I wasn't feeling well.

Great idea! I always love new games.

Rose: I enjoyed myself at Walmart today.
Thorn: I once again got ignored by my ex. It hurts so bad.

rose: I had an eventful Sunday and did a lot of fun things.
thorn: my roommate is annoying the hell out of me by being really vague and not communicating properly about when or if he’s leaving.
