I custom built my computer, and I love messing around with gadgets and technology. I play a lot of computers games and enjoy browsing the internet and doing research on everything and anything.

My car is one of my big hobbies.



I also like to go shooting occasionally.

Meh you could say I'm an artist. I like to draw and paint. I also animate. I make stopmotion animation and am currently learning how to animate with adobe flash. I really love to see something that I made move and brighten the faces of people ( more like my mom dad and sis haha ).

I am an artist, but more so a writer, I have written serveral stories to be honest. Though publishing them and not being ripped off is another thing. If anyone is interested in reading my work I am currently working on my website on which I will post all updates. It will be on my personal info when its done, or you could email me at [email protected] to receive what ever one I am working on, which currently is Black Hawk Squadron!

I've been riding/showing horses for 17 years.... o_O wow that makes me sound old :lol:
Though nowadays I don't show anymore, mostly because school has gotten to the point where just showing up to class isn't enough, and I actually have to take time away from the stuff I love to pass the course :roll:

But I still have my horse, and she's my "stress relief" where I don't have to...well... I really can't...Think of anything else, other than her...Otherwise, I'd be sitting on the ground wondering what happened :roll: Still working on her training, need to get her back to jumping 3ft again, because she's getting bored with the basics stuff we'd been doing lately.

While I wouldn't really call my animals a hobby, they're more... "my life". I think that's a better definition. ^_^

I do play a few games here and there. Instead of paying for WoW, bf and I started playing Requiem for awhile, then got bored and moved on to other stuff :lol: SL's another that I used to get on a lot, but that's more of a chat/interaction thing than an actual "game".

Ah cars...I probably should go take mine to the wash :lol:

I spend the majority of my time taking care of all the animals in the house, and taking pictures of them. :lol: I raise fancy mice and they take up a lot of my time.

Well, I have three things that I call my babies. Lily is the first, of course. The second is my laptop, which I spend the majority of my summer on, lol. And the third is all of my books. I have upwards of 400 at the moment, and I love them all. I'm a huge bookworm and have always loved to read. I also love animals in general, and my favorites are hedgehogs, big cats (especially tigers), birds of prey, and horses. I'm planning to go into zoology, so I can work with either big cats or horses.
I also love to sew, and I've been making quilts lately. I've made one for myself, my mom, and my great-aunt so far, and am working on one for my grandma right now.

I LOVE gaming (PC or console). I built my own rig, but it has insufficient cooling. Soo... I stick to my 360 most of the time. Gaming is my passion, I've been doing it since I got my little hands on the first Game Boy.

I'm a college student going to school to become an artist that (hopefully) will be employed in the video game industry. I have yet to decide on my specialization, but there's 3d modeling, concept art, character design, environment design, etc. I've always had a little bit of raw talent for drawing, so once I figured out what I loved to do & found a college that would help me do it, I've been taking classes & trying to get better. I've got 3 years :lol: Let's hope that's enough.
But yeah, drawing/graphic design is another hobby of mine.

Also, I guess animals would be another hobby. I've been riding horses on/off since I was 4, I've had over 50 pets (rescues/rehabilitations, and just family pets) that include birds, cats, dogs, a huge number of small animals, snakes, fish, turtles, a variety of reptiles, a bat, a hedgie and plenty of others.

Other than that, I pretty much just sit around and work. :lol: And now, clean up hedgie poop as well.

One of my many hobbies is skeleton key collecting I have 250+ and no two are the same I am a bit of a addict. I see one I don’t have or have never seen I just black out wake up in a strange place with a new key and a empty wallet…… just last week I bought a antique key cupboard it was in an old hotel so now I need to fill it I think it holds 425.
:mrgreen:

I enjoy reading and believe everyone should read a thousand splendid suns, its amazing! I also like photography especially macro, bugs. Im trying to bake & decorate cakes but am new to this so currently not very good.

I adore animals, am quite a strict vegeterian, and love helping look after my parents dog William, and like most girls i love to shop!

My final babies I have to mention are my classic Mini Cooper and my recently departed cat Toby, who i miss like mad.

This has been neat reading what everyone else is up to :)

Aside from work I am a huge knitter. I even have wheels and make my own yarn :lol: I can pretty much knit whatever at this point as I've been doing it for over ten years. I also am a big video game geek, RPG's are my fav and I play more 360 than PC at the moment. I also like turn based strategy games and puzzle stuff.

For other pets, I have a fish tank and a giant hamster :) Well, she is not officially a giant, but everyone who sees her is surprised she is a hamster at all, and then asks why she is so **** big! She's still growing too, the weirdo :lol:

Besides hedgehogs...

Well I love to go camping. There is a beautiful campsite a few hours drive from my home that is on the ocean. 90% of the sites face the ocean and when the tide is in the water is literally steps from your tent. It is one of the most amazing views. Where else
can you get an ocean view for $24 a night?

I am teaching myself to play guitar. I love to play my guitar even though as of yet I am not very good at it! I also taught myself to knit (I knit well, nice even stitches which isn't really any good when all you can knit is a square or a rectangle! I haven't figured out increasing and decreasing yet!) and embroider.

I enjoy reading, right now I am reading The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. It sounds really corny and ridiculous but they are great books! I love Harry Potter books, The Clan of the Cave Bear series by Jean Auel and the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.

I enjoy video games. I have a Wii, a PS3, a DS and a PSP. I like Zelda; with Ocarina of Time being my all time favorite video game. I like Guitar Hero and Rock Band and am better at these than my stepkids!

And last but not least... I collect Disney pins. For anyone who has not heard of this it is called Pin Trading. I collect Haunted Mansion pins and Walt Disney Imangineering pins. I never knew about this until my last trip to Disneyland. They were having a pin festival and I was hooked! These pins are made with such detail. Some will glow, some light up, some spin, some have a hidden element that you can see under a black light. Also, most of the ones I collect are limited edition; sometimes 1000 sometimes as low as 200! People are so crazy about these
pins that some of the older low edition sizes sell for hundreds of dollars! It's a really fun 'sport'. Right now I am searching for my 'holy grail' pin...

Well in my spare time I enjoy all crafts, knitting, crocheting, cross-stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, sewing...etc. Pretty much anything involving wool, thread or cloth..lol. I also love reading, pretty much any kind of book besides romance.

My animals take up alot of my spare time..right now my husband and I have 6 mini-donkeys, 2 dogs, 4 cats, 1 macaw, 11 hedgies, 1 rabbit, finch, java finch and assorted pea****s, pheasants and turkeys.

I work as an ambulance service as an EMT and do some bookkeeping on the side.

most of my hobbies include taking care of something. we have 4 absolutely wonderful dogs that get spoiled like crazy my husband even made them each a bed with their names on them. i spend alot of time with my quaker parrot Jackson, he is a big talker! of course our 2 beautiful hedgies, but what takes up most of my time is my 3 year old little boy. he is super smart and is really fun to talk to. besides all of that in my free time i read and do cross stitch. i have been cross stitching since i was 15 and it is just something that i really fun for me to do. i love seeing the finished product! i think that is about it. im a pretty boring person!

It nice to see how many knitters we have on this forum. I do however have one question. Am I the only writer on this forum? It doesn't matter to me though. Send me an email at Gyakudoshi if you wish to read some of my work.

I used to fancy myself a writer. I wrote what I thought was an absolutely adorable (and funny) children's book about a gerbil. Although kids really seem to enjoy it, not many publishers are willing to publish picture books by an unknown any more :(
