Bite-sized projects for hungry minds


5 and 50

Week 19 – Omok (Renju/Gomoku)

For this week's challenge I discovered a traditional Asian board game called Omok.

Week 18 – Acro Yoga

Part yoga, part dance, part exercise, Acro Yoga is a perfect activity to learn with your partner.

Week 17 – A 2000 Piece Puzzle

A big jigsaw puzzle is an extremely underrated date night idea.

Week 16 – Slacklining

With the help of a guideline, slacklining turned out to be a much easier hobby to pick up than I ever would have expected.

Week 15 – An Original Song

After years of excuses I finally complete and share an original song!

Week 14 – My First Attempt at Stand-Up Comedy

I take a stab at stand-up comedy and perform at my first open mic night. Warning: My act contains adult material and may induce cringing.

Week 13 – An Original Short Story

Aleco writes an original short story in 5 hours.

Week 12 – Get the Picture?

I've long hated both being in and posing for pictures, but in this week's challenge I do my best to learn how to take a nice shot.

Week 11 – I’m 25 and I just learned how to swallow a pill

At age 25 I finally learned how to swallow pills, though I'm still not entirely over my fear of pills. In this post I reflect on 5 and 50 as a format.
