I make clothes! Dresses, formal shirts, all kinds of things ☺️

The best part is being able to alter/upcycle second hand clothes so I can buy cheaply and sustainably.

I kinda feel like the desire to "make things" and coding goes hand in hand 🤔

Yes, which Systems?After 25 years I have not been active for a while myself. But help a friend with his shadowrun campaign and it works out well. So i still got a bit of my mojo. 😅

I've played/run a lot of Burning Wheel. Also done a bit of Stars without Number, D&D, and Dungeon World.

Awesome... Burning Wheel had something special about it If i remember correctly? Sci Fi with a special game mechanic?

For me it was Lots of Star Wars (D6, D20), Shadowrun, GoT and D&D. With excursions to a lot of other systems like savage world, Mage, Gurps, Spycraft, Mutant Cronicles, Cuthulu (i can't spell that right ), blue plant.

I'm not a fan of online games or video games. I meant real farming, that's where the food on our plate comes from.

Listening (and understanding): to your client, your colleagues, and even yourself.
Another skill I value in my colleagues it the ability to ask questions, especially those you might think they should know the answer to. It can takes a lot of courage in some environments.

I publish activity books for teenagers that tackle discrimination. I’m now also working on a card game 💕
So I’d say… turning everything into a game?

I cook food. I try to be allergy friendly since I'm gluten sensitive. Mostly recipes focused on keeping the inflammation down. Originally started out by necessity, but now enjoy the brake I get when I set aside time to cook. I also save a lot since I don't really go to restaurants anymore.
