My mother has a number of carefully worded mantras that she has branded into the brains of my siblings and I. One of these is as follows: “it’s not what you do, it’s who you do it with.”
This is likely the reason why I’ve seen the second season premiere of House of Cards 3 times, or why I have ever done anything athletic. I loved the group of people who we’re going to see Final Destination 3, so I went with, despite my distaste for horror/horrible movies. It’s all about the people. If you surround yourself with people you love, the activity itself becomes exponentially more enjoyable.
