Daily Log – A Topic I Love by T

I’m excited to announce that my boyfriend’s oldest son has agreed to participate too. As a way of engaging him in an on-line dialogue, I’ve decided to ask him to write about a topic he’s excited about these days: Magic Cards The Game

One of his best, life-long friends is a few years older than him and now attends high-school. Because of their different ages, family needs, and very different school back grounds, they haven’t had much of a chance to hang out over the last few years. Not that there’s no school due to the strike, they have the chance to share some interests. One is The Game of Magic Cards.

So, T, I’m happy you’re here too. I’d love to read what you have to say about:

– How long have you been playing Magic and what is it you like about it?

about 6 months.and i like play magic because its fun.

– What’s it like playing with C.? Have you learned anything about Magic from him?

its like awesome.everything there is to know about magic.

– Are card games like Magic Cards good ways for kids / youth to learn?

yes.thanks for having me : ).

Heh T, I’m really glad you decided to join in and enjoyed hearing your voice here.   One thing I’ve learned from you is that kids learn better when they are really excited about something.  you have taught me a lot about passion and enthusiasm.  When I listen to you taking about some of the subjects you love: Magic cards, gaming, modding, hacking and coding, and basically the freedom to be yourself and design your own play and your own learning, I realize how important freedom of choice is for kids.

I enjoyed reading your responses here and get the sense you care about the topic of Magic Cards.  I’m wondering if you could write a little more about each question, maybe give some details.   For example, what are the advantages of hanging out, playing with and learning from an older friend like C.?    What aspects of Magic Cards make it really fun?   You have a lot to say, T.  Our readers would like to hear more from you, and I’d love to see you write more.
