Education & Self help (learning & teaching)
I had a difficult time in the traditional schooling system, struggling every step and hating it all. Until I met my mentor which showed me how to learn. This is when I fell in love with science and maths. I looked deeper into psychology and shared my findings with others as a teacher and mentor.
I own quite a few PC games but rarely spend any time on anything other than Star Craft 2, or Counter Strike with my wife. SC2 and CSGO are competitive skill based games, meaning your rank in the game is determined by your skill level. Besides PC games there are periods where I get into semi competitive standard magic the gathering on friday nights.
Star Craft 2
SC2 is my favorite game to play and watch on esports. Although I dont have that much time to play.
I normally play at diamond level, when I play a bit more I start pushing towards masters.
Magic the Gathering
MTG is a strategic card game with constant new cards and changing metas.
I go through sprints where I play regularly at friday night magic.
Counter String Global Offensive
My wife loves CSGO so I play with her often. CSGO is skill based and has a string competitive nature which I enjoy.
I normally play at mge, and Im comfortable there.
Science and technology
