My favorite hobbies are playing games and solving puzzles. Ever since I was little, my parents introduced me to various puzzles games ranging from board games to paper-and-pencil games to video games. Some of my favorite games include escape room, sudoku, and jigsaw puzzles. I like to play these games either by myself, or with friends and families. One of my most cherished childhood memories was playing games and working in groups with my close ones during family gatherings. Most people I know find these games boring, but I love the thrill of using my problem solving and pattern finding skills to complete a task. It’s also a useful relaxation method for me since I always feel satisfied and accomplished after I solved a problem. Whenever I feel stressed by school work or personal issues, I always play some mini puzzle games on my phone to help me relax.
