  1. The sunrise was at 5:46 this morning and the sunset is at 9:06. So, 15 hours and 20 minutes of sunlight
  2. Thank you for the activity, it was interesting to read people's answers to the discussions.
  3. I would like to take the time to thank the people who are now working from home, whether by choice, or because it was the only way they would be able to work. You are doing great, even though I'm sure it has been an adjustment. I would also like to thank all of the essential workers for going out and working in these uncertain times. I'm sure it takes some courage to go into work each day, not knowing who may be coming through those doors, and not knowing if the people you come into contact with have been keeping themselves safe, and are following the instructions. I would also like to thank the restaurants for offering takeout and delivery. I also like to thank everyone who is staying home and keeping themselves and their family and friends safe. I know it has been hard to not be able to be around your family and friends.
  4. I have a few groups I would consider to be family: biological family, martial arts family, and work family. Of my biological family I have 5 siblings, 9 nieces and nephews, and 5 great nieces and nephews. In my household we have 2 cats and 4 dogs. My siblings also have animals: 2 cats and 4 dogs. My martial arts family consists of several people I have trained with for several years, and it changes quite often when new students join, or when old students leave for other things like work or school. There are several people I would consider to be like aunts and uncles, or siblings. My work family consists of several close coworkers (almost like siblings) in our department and our supervisor (this is the person I drive crazy every day!). Within our department we usually bring baked goods to share and sometimes we have a potluck. The rest of our coworkers more like cousins or distant relatives.
  5. My mother taught me to be independent, and to not be afraid to be my own person. She taught me to speak my mind, even though there were certainly times she must have regretted this. She taught me to be generous... although I choose to donate time and money to different things then her. She chose to help people, where I generally prefer to help animals. She tried to teach me to say "no" when needed, although it was something that was difficult for her to do, and it is still something I struggle with at times. She taught me to be strong while still keeping my soft hearted side. She taught me not to give up when things became hard, even though there were times I may have wanted too. She taught me how to not manage my money. She taught me to appreciate what I have and to work for what I want.
  6. I don't think I have ever celebrated May day, and I recall any stories where family members have. May day is only celebrated in certain parts of my country. In part of the country, it is celebrated with dancing, and singing traditional May Day songs. There is some birthdays in the family but since they are all adults now, so we don't usually have parties. Usually, we have a small gathering, and have dinner and cake. Usually, the person whose birthday it is will choose a favourite meal to have. But, of course this isn't possible this year since we don't live together. We typically celebrate Victoria Day weekend (also known as May 24 weekend). It is a long weekend, with the Monday off, in celebration of Queen Victoria's official birthday, in my country it is typically celebrated with fireworks. My family usually celebrates it by having a small get together, with friends and family.
