    What are your hobbies?
    I LOVE video games, not just playing them, but reading about them and understanding them and their culture. However, videogames aren't socially acceptable. When Im playing my Xbox 360 my parents always look at me bad like Im supposed to be doing something more important and I always feel bad when friends walk in on me playing games--it makes me feel like I have no life. My gaming habits are in control, its not like Im some sort of World of Warcraft or Everquest player, but I'd like to branch out into other things and expand my pallet of interests. SO!.

    Ah yes, fishing. I enjoy the act of fishing more than catching fish. Any others?

    I started life drawing classes again recently, go to the gym a lot, swim in summer, do yoga exercises, and scrabble (delicious word finds like DIPLOZOA, CHURROS, BALISTAS). I read truck-loads of multicultural fiction, poetry and non-fiction in the past ~ and loved it at the time!

    A lot of people think scrabble is as boring as bat-poop. I'm good at anagrams and enjoy matching wits with someone across a table in a game requiring skill. I enjoy the conversations that can be had. It's fun and satisfying.

    I play chess too. I'm just not that good at it, even though I often win against friends ;)

    Whatever you do, do it with passion. If you love everything about video games including wanting to know and understand their cultural origins, that's great! I dabbled in studying Japanese popular culture, Asian film and literature, which I thought was fascinating. I imagine finding out about video games would be just as interesting.

    Anything outdoors, cook-outs with a real fire, no charcoal or propane, hiking, mild climbing at our age (the wife and I), photography, target shooting, sports memorabilia, and roller coasters.

    Since I am entirely self-employed, most of what I do is directed at making a living for myself. Although, there are a few things that I do for fun. One would be flower and vegetable gardening. Another one would be that I am a collector of things, particularly antiques or things that just interest me because they might fit into the décor that I have in my home or might be useful or monetarily valuable someday.

    Just get some exercise before you sit down to play some video games, I feel guilty too sometimes like I'm wasting time, but if I go for a bike ride or a run first at least I can say I got some exercise and just want to chill now.
