What are your hobbies/interests?

Recommended Posts

I've researched loads about history, food cycles, war tactics, human migration patterns, linguistics, politics, economics, technological advancement... all in the attempt of writing down a believable 6000+ year fake history for a fake world.
 

What about you?

Ooh, are you going to be publishing?

I also enjoy writing, but more for fun.  Well, that and I've only completed one of my stories *blushes*  I do read a lot.  I enjoy crocheting, gardening, video games, and want to get back into painting.  Lately I've been researching ag, since I want to start a small farm.  I'm also definitely into music/music history.  I play multiple instruments, and am studying it in college.

Mostly I game.    Been trying to get the original StarCraft to work properly on my laptop.
Friend is running a vampire game set 1178, so learned far more than I really needed about the 3rd and 4th Crusades.

I write stories too! Although, like you, I've only completed one of mine... And it was a short story from when I was a kid, so it was terribly written with no realism or logic what-so-ever. ^^;;
I do plan to rewrite it in a different way, though. My mom says to look at it as if it's not a terrible story, it's just my first draft. (And I was like, 10 when I wrote it. So thinking with realism and logic wasn't really easy to do. My imagination was more in charge.)

I love to read as well, and video games are my favourite. Ironically, most Harvest Moon games are in my top favourites. Except the new ones. We don't speak of those. xD

I say Harvest Moon ironically since they're awesome games that all include farming, and you mentioned wanting to start a small farm. It sounds like hard work but that it could also be fun and rewarding!

My number one hobby right now has got to be watching shows and videos. The latest show I finished was Sonic Boom.

Other than that? There's a lot of things I enjoy!

Shopping at malls. I like the atmosphere of malls, the fountain, the decor, the skylights, I dunno why.

Collecting bird figurines. I'm quite fond of the three that I have, and I hope to acquire more in the future.

If I notice it's raining, I'll go out of my way to go for a walk in the rain. It's so calming and pleasant to me. But thunderstorms? Eww. I stay away. xD

There's another forum site where I spam posts in a specific thread... lol. Kind of a strange sounding hobby to most people, but I like doing it while I watch something.

I love listening to music. Mostly music from the 80s and earlier. I also listen to relaxing music or white noise on occasion.

I like chatting with people online, or in person. It's fun staying engaged in an interesting conversation with someone else.

I'm probably forgetting some things, but that's all I can come up with for now.

i am a simple person and i like about 3 or 4 things that are all pretty interconnected and that is it:

- tabletop rpgs. my friends and i have about a half a dozen tabletop games going due to conflicting schedules... 5e d&d, both homebrew and curse of strahd, 4e, lamentations of the flame princess, call of cthulhu, delta green... and a science fiction homebrew my friend wrote that's so fresh it doesn't even have a title. not to mention all the oneshots that we run when schedules get really whacky. i also enjoy RPG video games too (especially if they have interesting worldbuilding!!), but nothing beats tabletop!

- writing. at the moment I'm mostly into novelizing my characters from the aforementioned rpg video games (about 200k into my various dragon age protagonists, and 50k into my fallout protagonists.) but I also dabble in original writing (and to a lesser extent reading) in service of my third major hobby:

- worldbuilding! same as op! i just temporarily shelved one of my older projects, a small star system that was abandoned by the rest of the galaxy...including the people living there. next one is going to be a fantasy, i've got some ideas stewing in the back of my head for some magical shenanigans.

- i've also recently started (re-) learning gaelic! i had been looking into the language's structure for my dragon age project for Reasons, and i ran through the first dozen or so lessons on the LearnGaelic website last january, before getting swamped with real life. then the course on duolingo got released and I got back into it. i'm really enjoying it so far!!

I have found new awesome hobby recently - hiking. Never thought it could be so entertaining! I even bought cool walkie talkies for my hiking trips with friends. I read reviews and I thought it could be useful tool in our trips.

I like to play paintball, it's a great hobby. This immeasurably enriches your life and provides valuable physical activity.
In my free time, I like to play games at ny spins. A large assortment of games for every taste. good bonuses only make the game more interesting.
In winter, most enjoy snowboarding. It teaches you to correctly evaluate distance, to understand how your body moves in space, and how to make the right decisions on the fly.
