What are your hobbies?
What things do you do in your life other than spending your eternity in front of your computer and your job that you like?
Feel free to talk about whatever you want, I guess.

eroge, anime, manga, figures, cosplay, cross-dressing o.O?


Other than that ?? Hmmm........................... Hmmm..................... Hmm......... Wow, this is harder than i thought...

lol, i do some sport, Love football, play tennis sometimes, fitness/gym (not really a hobby, just have to lose some overlapping tummy.. :( ), swimming... Also love to watch sport.. like Football (ManUtd) and Tennis (Nadal).

Going to movies, watching tv series... Games, after around 4-5 years gaming hiatus except some PC games, since my parents won't buy me a PS2 due to my academic achievement soared dived dramatically after they bought me a PSX... I saved enough money to buy myself one, also bought a PSP recently, so i guess I'm back being a gamer...


I think it's just unhealthy to be a fully fledged otaku, I got friends whose current state are just beyond pathetic, low social skills, low communication skills... It's these kind of people that makes people think that anime/manga are bad. I think it's important to have different hobbies and different type of friends, not just otakus, to keep maintain your social skills...

Well, other than that, i do have a lot of interests.... Btw, just re-read my post, why did i suddenly rant..?? :lol:

Errm you mean other than gaming and anime viewing every single day of my life? Welp sorry to disappoint but I really got nothing other than maybe following sports ... cricket really. I tell myself that lazing around like this is only for while I am at uni but after 3 and a half years of this crap I really doubt I will ever change :P Its funny how much life changes after high school ...

I am just glad I still have a (minimal) social life at uni XDDD I should probably get a job soon since I need to start saving up for that PS3 and 50 inch Bravia ... :P

Since when are computers and video games not hobbies? My main hobby is video games (mostly fighters and FPS, recently started playing SHMUPS), and I like to mess with computers in general. Other than that I also enjoy swimming. I try to go to the lake or pool when I can during the summer, but when school starts I usually don't have the time or motivation.

Hmm, well my biggest hobbies include music and computers, I accualy play in a band (nothing big at al) and I play (alot) of computer games.
I have played the piano (synth) for a while now and I'm fairly good at it, my band (note: I do not accualy own the band :P) will record our first demo this winter, I will probably post a link when we are done :D .
My favorit computer game is Warcraft III (gotta luv it) and you can find me on the northrend server (PM me if you wanna play against me sometime), I also play CS (1.6) but i suck balls at it.

That's nice. I play piano also, but didn't bother with the ARCT (Gr. 10 is enough for now). I play Violin also, but took a break this year (still Gr. 6 about).
I play badminton also, but never got in the team. My school is overpowered >_>
Other than that, I also enjoy jogging.

Not much...

Music.
Listening. Instrumental, Folklore & Metal (Heavy, Power, Black, Symphonic, Folk, Viking, Avant-Garde and what not.)
Playing. Currently only classical stuff, eventually i'll get some other things done. That is if Fire Emblem lets me go <-< I'm more of a loner, but i have played with people just to increase my ability, i'm even with a chorus for that matter but i'm already annoyed by it.
Composing. Well, i don't have too much done, but it's there...

Stories. Videogames, manga, novels... anything with an interesting plot, interesting characters or if better, both. I'm writing some stuff myself too. I have like 70 pages total... or something.

Videogames. Yeah, apart from playing them for the stories i have other reasons. Most of the time i play Strategy games (Starcraft & Fire Emblem at the moment), RPGs (anything... really), Adventure-Hack & Slash (You know... Zelda, Ninja Gaiden, Fable, shit like that) and the only fighting game i play is Smash Brothers. Some FPS from time to time.

I think that's it. Yep, i hate anything else. Movies? I think 95% are crap. Going out? Pointless for me. Meeting people? Most of the people i end up meeting are boring and/or stupid.

Oh yes, there's also a bit of porn every once in a while :P but i doubt that's just me.

It seems we have the same music taste, or rather exactly the same music taste. It's hard to find ppl who apprciate the same music as yourself.

-Hmm... Sleeping!
-Gaming, but I haven't played much console games this holiday...
-Writing from time to time, though I write very, VERY sporadically (I left a fic halfways.. got stuck in the ending and the beginning is... rather incomplete...)
-Reading (The Road by Mr. Cormac at the moment, easy to read!).
-Hmm..... fapping?... well that's pretty common I guess :P
-Drawing, but I haven't drawn a single goddamn line in a month! :?
-When I happen to go out with some friends (which doesn't happen very often) talk about shit and sometimes get stupid drunk! Aaaah! good times! :D but the hangover is HELL!!! Hope to never get THAT drunk again!
-Hmmm.... listen to music, I guess? but I have to do something while listening or I'll get bored...
-Haaah.... hmm... what else, what else...? Trying to learn to play the guitar... and FAIL in the process! Hahaha!
-Sleeping!! (Yeah! I love to sleep!)
-Jogging, or else I'll feel stiff and uncomfortable.
-Watching some movies from time to time, not much as before but I enjoy them (I watched 300 and it fucking SUCKED so BAAAAD but I ENJOYED it! I was laughing like an idiot in most of the "epic" parts of the movie! :lol:
Movie: An then!.... They used their MAGIC!!
Me: WHAT??!!! That's not Fucking MAGIC!!! Those are fucking EXPLOSIVES!!! HAHAHA!!
).
-Hmm.... well this goes without saying, but I enjoy manga, anime and VNs, which is pretty much common here. But I rarely watch anime now, only some stuff, and for mangas I stick mostly with serious-toned stuff, and VNs... well, I think that's pretty much covered in other threads I guess ;)

Hmm... Shhheeeeaah.... I think that's about it, for the moment at least.
