As many of you are writing me asking about how I relax and enjoy, apart from following my daily routine of reading/studying/learning, practicing/teaching MMQG, coaching, this are my favorite activities to relax:

  • working at Mathematical/statistical algorithms for linguistics and conlangs (constructed languages)
  • learning, writing, reading dead languages (I know 5 of them and I am learning some more …)
  • solving complex calculus/chem/physics problems – this is actually what relaxes me more
  • repairing mechanical watches, film cameras, and mechanical calculators– if you have any old watch, camera or instrument and if you would ever want to give it to me for free, I would be happy and grateful
  • repairing vintage writing/drawing tools – – if you have any old or vintage writing or drawing you want to give me for free, I would be happy and grateful
  • doing things by embroidering, sewing, weaving, working with leather and wool

  1. WOW Rafaello, your activities to relax are amazing! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»β€ I’m afraid I’ll disappoint if I share mine:
    – listening to classical music
    – reading and writing in different languages
    – spending some time with my children
    – going for a walk in the countryside or at the beach
    – doing nothing.

  3. Hi Raffaello, your relaxations sound like work to most. Very interesting however. Apart from drawing and writing, I enjoy critiquing writing of others. Plus, Reading, sewing, walking and biking and watching dance. I love flamenco, modern dance and ballet.
