    I love to garden, be in gardens, hike, or just sit still in nature.

    *Playing video games-I played videogames like Bugs Bunny and Pacman. Can't remember much...
    *Looking up information online-I do this MOST OF THE TIME...just because when I'm not using the computer, my brother is the one using it, so if not for him, I'd be online ALL THE TIME.
    *Writing fiction-Well, I wrote a love story and it was based on my fantasy with my ultimate crush but since the magic had died, I wasn't inspired to finish the story anymore.
    *Drawing-I started with drawing people when I was 5, and now, I'm into abstract art.
    *Computer Programming-I practically disdain it.
    *Studying Philosophy-I only like the love vs. infatuation part.
    *Learning Mathematics-I really had a hard time w/ this.
    *Reading fiction-Well, I'll read them for a while and then some nonfiction book/magazine catches my attention.
    *Reading comics-I don't like reading comics.
    *Reading the newspaper-depends on the topics
    *Watching television-I really love to watch TV.

    *Playing video games
    *Looking up information online
    *Writing fiction
    *Drawing
    *Computer Programming
    *Studying Philosophy
    *Learning Mathematics
    *Reading fiction
    *Reading comics
    *Reading the newspaper
    *Watching television
    Interests/hobbies: Painting, drawing, sculpting, writing, baking, sewing, movie-making, music, psychology, surfing, spirituality, personal growth, interior design, culture, learning about anything that will improve the qulaity of my life, learning about how things work particularly gadget type things and everything to do with human beings, baseball/softball, playing the piano, dancing...erm I can't think of anything else at the moment although there very well may be more.


    *Playing video games
    Not so much. Only every once in a while.

    *Looking up information online
    Very inclined. Especially if it's researching psychology.

    *Writing fiction
    Inclined. Not REALLY inclined but inclined. I occasionally write poetry and short stories. I was planning on writing a novel but who knows if I'll ever go through with it.

    *Drawing

    VERY VERY inclined. I do it all the time. I love it.

    *Computer Programming
    Meh. Not so much.

    *Studying Philosophy
    Not much at all really although once in a while I will discuss the philosphy of different aspects of morality.

    *Learning Mathematics
    It all depends on the teacher. Every time I've had a good teacher I've loved math. I doubt I would go learn it on my own though.

    *Reading fiction
    When I was younger I used to be more into it. Now not so much.

    *Reading comics
    Nah.

    *Reading the newspaper
    Nah.

    *Watching television
    Not so much. I don't like watching a lot of TV. If it's not educational I feel like I'm wasting my life when I watch it. Lucky for me my favorite stuff usually is educational. My favorite channels are HGTV, TLC, and Discovery. But I still try not to watch too much of that either.

    hahahaha omg I feel you with once you get your computer issues right! It's rewarding when something FINALLY connects to a server or when you can troubleshoot an error.

    *Playing video games - Yes, right now I'm very fond of old games from the 80's on Commodore 64. You can play them with Java in the browser on line, fantastic! c64s.com - play Commodore 64 games online (no download required)

    *Looking up information online - Yes, Yes! I am addicted to this. I have learned so much this way

    *Writing fiction - No, I have bad imagination (lack of intuition )

    *Drawing - Sometimes, and I'd like to get better.

    *Computer Programming - I've learned some HTML, but then I lost interest in it

    *Studying Philosophy - I used to study philosophy, until I discovered that I hate it. I am more interersted in the smell and look of the physical book I'm reading than in the text itself.

    *Learning Mathematics - I'm too stupid for that

    *Reading fiction - As long as it isn't too abstract

    *Reading comics - It's ok, but I don't own very many comic books

    *Reading the newspaper - That's the first thing I do every morning. I like it.

    More interests: Going to the gym, paleolithic diet, looking at girls, food, nature, thinking about my life, new things, drinking alcohol with friends.

    I must also confess that I've had intentions of bettering my mind and trying to become philosophical only to find that the feel and smell of the tome I was presumably reading was far more interesting to me than anything written on it's pages.

    Do you ever pause in the middle of some book or lecture-on-CD that's supposed to be very profound and wonder why the heck you're wasting a perfectly good day on something you don't really personaly find very meaningful to YOU? I have that a lot. I'm trying to listen more to my own heart when it comes to evaluating the "depth" of what I'm reading.

    Oh yes.
    I'll be doing the proper thing...sitting...listening or reading....learning.....
    Then it will occur to me that if all this I'm perusing is good then why I am I just sitting here listening to somebody else talk about it when I could be doing it and getting a feel for what it's really like.

    Lectures may spark an interest and sketch an outline for me but, beyond that, they become a waste of time.

    Satisfaction lies in the practice, not the theory.
