I am Unity: Felicia Blow / two minds press

What's the most half-baked hobby you took on since the COVID-19 shutdown?

I bought a jump rope back in June and have used it exactly once so far. Also thought I'd use the extra time to take on my lifelong goal of learning how to skate, borrowed a board from a friend months ago, but no progress. Ironic considering this project!

What are you binge-watching?

A poster for the Survivor tv show, featuring the logo of a backlit person holding a flaming torch, and the show's catchphrase "Outwit, Outlast, Outplay"

Survivor! I've seriously become hooked, and there are 40 seasons so I highly recommend to anyone trying to fill their winter quarantine time

What's the last thing that made you laugh out loud?

Kim's Convenience – I heard about it from a friend last year but just started watching and it's such a mood booster

If you were to create a signature skate move, what would the move involve/look like?

Probably something low to the ground... what hasn't been invented yet? 

Anything you'd like to share with the world?

This is the hardest part of the year for lots of people, even amidst the new year(s) and celebration, so check in on your folks and yourself and remember we take care of each other ♡
