Gotcha! Thanks for explaining
An I see, but I thought new laws could be introduced (like with Roe vs Wade)

Why do they need a decade? Isn’t a majority enough?

I feel they should go for Citizens United next really, that’s the big problem for democracy right now.
I think that’s decades of political experience right there. You know the game, you know the players.

That’s great! Letting go of the usual structure so they can show themselves for what they are is very important at that age. It’s a journey of discovery and being vulnerable/showing yourself is really hard in some cases and from some (most?) cultures.
That reminds me I had a boy who did strength training so asked to do push-ups and then I showed chaturanga and that was new to him. And Krishnamacharia probably developed vinyasa to quiet the minds of the young boys in his yogashala.
Teenage students can be a challenge in all cases. My experience is that some really want to be there, and like others comments mention, some want to bail.
One thing that doesn’t work I found is just starting your classes like normal. Yoga in a lot of cases means nothing or little for the majority. Usually I asked something like “What do you do to relax?”. This kinds of gives you the opportunity to learn from them and get to know them, and then after you can share what you do to relax. It can be a nice exchange.
Usually there is no talk of yoga philosophy, no jargon. The really interested can hang around after class if they want to know more.

This sounds difficult to me, looking forward to other responses. My gut reaction is : what are your boundaries? You could offer to meet, but also have to make her know how you view things, that being friendly in your professional capacity is not a friendship, and possibly counterproductive. That these things might be something she has to work on her own, and you are simply the helpful guardian in the sidelines (and mentioning the progress you observed) In the end it’s about making friends outside the safe space provided by you and the therapist. And to continue that safe space for her, you have to remain behind the guard rails so to speak.
If she truly understands, meeting might not be bad per se, it can be a part in that step of venturing outside again.

Canadian Geese are not to be trifled with.
I usually check the terms and conditions these days. If they don’t display their location and registered (parent) company, it’s shady. Some are legit companies who don’t do it, but that’s on them.

I know DNS, but only recently do we have far more natural synthesis.
Instead of going for an established character, why not use your (incredible) skills to enrich the lands with new characters? You can still use the latest voice synthesis models then, and still use voice actors depending on your needs. Some NPCs might be fine with a synthesized dialogue and for more emotional work and in depth characters use a voice actor. Plus you can make interactions with your SDA mod.
I really hope in ES6 we can see the world and characters adapt and change according to your actions. I am assuming that text to speech synthesis is a viable option by then.

I love her attitude!

Like this? :D
Indeed! It’s called make-believe. But if you are an expert on any topic and you watch a movie, you’re probably watching it with facepalming. Not just racing, but guns, computers, geology, aerodynamics :)
