Everything I do in school. Everything. Mininum of 6 AP/Honors classes a year (usual the last slot is a required language credit or something like that). Study and work on homework a minimum of five hours a night, volunteer work when I'm not doing homework, and I'm in four honor societies at the moment, as well as a community service organization. I also take high level art classes, so that's an average of seven extra hours a schoolweek spent on art. On top of that, I'm a member of the staff for an opinion editorial site dissecting Korean culture...so two to three articles a week. Oh, and I take extra SAT and PSAT night prep classes. When I get together with friends, it's usual a study group at the local coffee shop. Exam times are hell, but I enjoy them in a sad, sick, masochistic sort of way.
I carry a TI-84 calculator in my purse. Fight me.
I know loads of pointless Tolkein trivia. Loads of it. I am the kind of person who scoured the appendices for the Return of the King, read the Silmarillion until the cover fell off, and watch every single one of the making-of featurettes on the film versions of the Lord of the Rings. I even went through a period where I tried to learn Quenya, until sadly, irl commitments got in the way.
I read Harry Potter fanfiction, and am not ashamed of it. In fact, I went to the midnight premiere of every single Potter movie, and was at the midnight book release parties for OOtP on.
I used to be a megapro at Guild Wars, because I thought WoW was too overdone.
