Anyone have any hobbies besides video games?

I tend to mimic people alot.  (hence the avatar)  But I also do some writing, including short stories and poetry.

I know theirs artists and writers that contribute, but surely there's some that havent mentioned it or don't contribute.  (I could but I'm not to happy with it.)

So if you're done reading this, you know I have nothing to say and you've wasted your time. Thank you come again.

i love music more than anything else, and my dream was always to go somewhere with my music, so im always kind of saddened when i know i cant have that cuz im gonna be in the army for the next six years.  i like to play guitar, bass, harmonica, and sometimes drums when i come across a set.  if i could ever find someone who bootlegged one of my shows or if i had a good recording, i would make a site or something and post links if anyone was interested.  i dont think lyrics or anything like that is welcome on the fanart/fanfic page, and i also dont want to offend anyone (particularly the webmaster or staff) because there is some rather harsh language in a few and somewhat violent subjects to a lot of my songs and i wouldnt want to offend anyone that didnt care for my views or ideas. im kind of an over-the-top kind of person, and not everyone likes that, so i pretty much keep it to myself.

i also work at a butcher shop, which although i get paid to do it, i would probably do it for free because its an easy job and you meet a lot of nice people and its a good skill to have i guess. im the only person i know who doesnt dread going to work 7 days a week, i actually look forward to it and count down the hours. stop thinking weird things about me.

thats about it, i dont get out much.

Hobbies, eh?

Music is THE most important thing in life. (aside from family, friends, etc.) From the moment I wake up until the moment I go to sleep, I'm listening to something which I tend to call "g00d music". Heck, I even go to sleep while listening to music.
I collect cd's. At last count, I had 134. I like to buy a couple of different cd's every couple of weeks, hence the sig.
Top 10 Bands-
-Rage Against the Machine
-Nonpoint
-tool
-System of a Down
-311
-Red HOt Chili Peppers
-Local H
-Offspring
-Stone Temple Pilots
-Foo Fighters

I also play music, as many of you know. I'm a professional ameteur at the bass (does that make sense?) I play in a band called Amoxicillin. Right now, we just do songs from other bands we like, but we've recently started to write our own stuff. Besides the bass, I'm a pro at the trumpet (ph33r my brass power!) Been playing it since the fourth grade. I also play set, though not good enough to be bragging. And I have some skills on the piano/keyboard.

Sports also a big part of my life. I love playing basketball, tennis, golf, baseball, and roller hockey. And I'm an avid sports watcher as well. I watch nearly anything on ESPN or Fox Sports Net.

I like to write short stories. To date, I have completed about 6 or 7 short stories (1 submitted to CoN) and have about 10-13 that are left unfiinished. I aspire to become a newspaper columnist when I graduate from high school. So writing is important to me.

Between all that, school, (bleh :p)  and working at a movie theater, those are my hobbies.

I like to read, mostly fantasy. There's the whole video game thing. Right now I'm addicted to FIFA 2003. Love music and all that. Intramural season has just starter so I've started playing soccer again. Sleep has become a hobby of mine since it requires some ingenuity to get it in with my homework among other things.

Sports is my life, it doesn't count as a hobby. That said, my hobbies include:

Music. I love music, mostly concious hip-hop, also a little R&B and Jazz. I think I'll imitate Sabin and list my top ten artists/groups:
Black Star
The Roots
De La Soul
J-Live
Mission
Common
Wu-Tang
Outkast
Pharcyde
Tribe Called Quest

Reading, Writing, Biking, and Chess also qualify, but a little less enthusiastically than music.

I play bass! Something both Tim and I forgot to mention is that we're in the same band. I play bass and lead vocals, Tim is the drummer, and then of course we have a lead guitarist (she's not a CoN member, so you wouldn't know her).

Making music -guitar, bass (play in a band that actually plays decent venues :D)

Video Games

Listening to music - Beatles, Pink Floyd, Sublime, Bob Marley, Deftones, Disco Biscuits, 2 Skinnee J's

Piercings - I am fascinated with body modifications, currently have 3/8" earlobes (stretching to 7/16") and eyebrow.  Planning on doing tongue soon.  I am fascinated with the anceint cutural aspects especially.  My choice of piercings is related to the tribal signifigance of them (ask me in chat and I can explain :D)

I'm an eccentric person with boring hobbies ¬.¬  I like to: read and analyze children's literature (reading in general isn't a hobby; it's something I do...like breathing), Victorian fashion and culture, 1920's fashion and culture, T.S. Eliot, Tennyson, classical Greek and Roman literature, geisha culture, collect interesting poker cards, watch anime, critically analyze anime, write fiction, draw, follow certain illustrators and artists, indulge in Japanese pop culture, and be as strange as possible.

I'm an Asian Studies major now, so I also spend a lot of time looking at Japanese society, culture, and history, and especially at gender issues.  So a hobby has turned into actual academic research.  I'll be doing it for the rest of my life now ^^;

if you like civil war sites, i can assure you 100% that you will enjoy gettysburg, especially if you havent already been there. go to downtown gettysburg and look at all the shops and other buildings, they havent changed in over 175 years (theres even a building with a cannon shell sticking out of the second story wall). make sure to visit the bloody angle, the peach orchard and devils den in particular. im sure you will appreciate the town and all the battlesites.

As a hallmark of my family, I do everything (though not at the same time). I try to focus on things which lead to a full, hearty life. Things such as music, liturature, learning, potatoes, and the great outdoors. I would have to say that the hobby which I take part in most often is thinking.

Edit: By liturature, I meant both writting and reading.

I used to play Saxophone and Basson, but have since slacked off of my music playing.  I also used to take karate, because my dad used to own a karate school because he's an uber-black belt-ninja-cop. White water rafting was fun, but I almost drowned doing that, so geh... I have plenty of books filled with old coins, since I used to collect them, but I haven't done it in years. Now I'm in the "websites and computer technologies own me" portion of my life. Oh how I love the internet.

Of course not! I have had people describe it to me, including my father (mostly middle school time-period :rolleyes:)
