The SCA’s a great way to learn about the Middle Ages. In a funny way it’s like a lecture: you can live it, and that way you learn it.

You can just forget about your normal life and don’t worry about it. Sometimes when I’m really busy doing SCA, I realise that my SCA life seems to be more important than my normal life, and that doesn’t seem to matter to me at all. I don’t really care that my normal life isn’t going well, as long as my SCA life is going well. Mmm … maybe I should start to get a bit worried.
