Discussion on: Yes, You Should Have Hobbies Outside of Code

Nothing super exciting in terms of hobbies or stuff outside of work. Just going to the gym, swimming lessons, snowboarding in the winter, reading (although most of the reading I've been doing lately has been programming related 🙃) and the usual hanging with friends. I must admit, I enjoy OSS and contribute whenever I can.

Rugby was a big part of my life for a long time, but I stopped playing in 2006.

Since then I've tried other sports such as dragon boating, ultimate Frisbee and soccer but I must admit, they all pale in comparison to rugby. I had a bad calf injury last fall which prevented me from playing indoor touch rugby last winter, but now that I'm all healed, hopefully I can lace up this winter to run around with my old teammates.
