Question of the Week: May 9th, 2017.

When someone tells you they’re ace do you assume they’re out/open about it or closeted if they don’t give you any more information? Do you make a point of telling people if being ace is a private part of your identity?

Question of the Week: May 3rd, 2017

What games have you been playing lately?

We recently acquired a copy of Scythe, which is a board game about an alternate history of eastern Europe, where there are mechs.  It’s a lot of fun, and sometimes we even stop playing Dominion to play it.  Also recently, we have been swept up by Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is a thing you may have heard of.

Question of the Week: April 25th, 2017.

Now that the weather is getting nice, what’s your favourite thing to do outside? 

As soon as it got warm enough I brought my yoga practice outside. I also write, read, and meditate outdoors when I can. Changing the space and doing a routine activity outside lifts my mood. Later this week a friend suggested having tea and bringing art supplies outside and drawing together. An acquaintance I know just mentioned he bought weights to do some lifting in the sun. What about you? Are there any hobbies or routines you’re reinvigorating by doing them out in the sun?
