Learning Skills and Doing Projects

My work and most of my favourite hobbies are on the computer. Since 2014 or so, I decided to learn new skills that would be away from screens and pick up activities I stopped doing in the past few years.

I love learning new things. I always do. My main education is traditional animation (cartoon), but I also picked up a few more diplomas over the years; travel and tourism, Spanish and web page design.

I explore a lot of different activities. I do them for a while and them I stop. If I liked it, I will get back to it or continue. When I like it, I will put a lot of hours into it. Some make you feel back for starting and stopping so many things. Well, I decided to no longer care about that. This way, I gather a lot of knowledge and skills, I discover what I really like doing and all acquired knowledge ends up applying to something else anyway.

In the past months, I realized that I really really love making my own stuff from scratch. It can either be tofu, furniture, compost, clothes or whatever else. The more complex it is, the more I want to learn it.

Here are some of the activities I started in the past years: animal tracking, sewing, making tofu (from the beans), gardening ( I reconnected with this passion), baking (since always), composting, web programming, genealogy, building furniture, mathematics, camping and permaculture.

One of the best thing my fiancé and I did this year was to get the Montreal's Botanical Garden yearly pass. This place is amazing. We go there pretty much every week-end to take a walk, learn about plants, see the evolution through the seasons and have profound discussion.

My next posts will be about all these projects and skills I have been learning and am learning now. If I pick up tricks in the process, I will share them with you!

Who Am I? I'm many things. I'm passionate about tons of stuff. I love travel. I love self-improvement. I'm a sucker for optimization, efficiency, and minimalism. I renewed with mathematics and science, those are so amazing. Astronomy and chemistry are just plain awesome! I'm a student, a mentor, a traveler, a learner, an artist, an animator, and Disney brings me tears of joy! I love to grow and I will never stop! So who am I? All that and everything else I have not discovered about myself yet. It's a never ending answer!

Qui suis je? Je suis beaucoup de choses. Je suis passionné des tonnes de trucs. J'adore voyager. J'adore la croissance personnelle. Je suis vendue à l'optimisation, l'efficacité et le minimalisme. J'ai renoué avec les mathématiques et les sciences, des mondes tout simplement incroyable. L'astronomie et la chimie sont tout simplement génial! Je suis étudiante, mentor, voyageuse, artiste, animatrice et Disney m'apporte des larmes de joie! J'aime me pousser à fond et je ne cesserai jamais! Alors, qui suis-je? Tout cela et tout le reste que je n'ai pas encore découvert de moi-même. C'est une réponse sans fin!
