Was indoor climbing two days ago.

Was fun. Should do that more often.

(Also hands still hurt...)

Phone repaired!

Also did a small mod, because I had the phone opened up anyways ;)

My fountain pen collection is growing...
I think I might have a problem 😶

Helped organize a Rubik's Cube competition this weekend.

We also created some mosaics, while we weren't competing:
