I read a TON. I love to hear what others are reading, give recommendations when they ask. In the first couple days of knowing you I will probably recommend Einsteins Dreams by Alan Lightman.
I have been climbing five years and have climbed 1500 feet in a single day. Teaching as many people to climb as possible along the way. Climbing altered the course of my life and taught me to push myself, learn for enjoyment, and dig deeper in many other aspects of life. As a direct result of climbing, I have brought an experimental mindset to everything I do.
A sport I tried to avoid for years for being "dangerous". Then COVID came and I couldn't climb. As a beginner to mountain biking I rely heavily on my friends to teach me the ropes and it is extremely exciting to be a beginner again and have something completely new to learn about.

After taking a welding class during the summer and buying a Snapmaker 2.0 I am becoming much more interested in fabrication. As a result I am learning CAD, 3D Printing, CNC, and a host of other skills along the way.
