I have several Hobbies and Interests. They have developed over the years of my life. Some rather macho, Others quite obviously feminine.
I decided to list a few of the things that have been a part of my life so far. I've categorised them as follows:
I doubt this will be interesting to most of you (unless you suddenly realise that we share common interests), I'm writing some of them down here because i am quite inexplicably making lists of things recently... Maybe this is a new 'hobby'? :)
- Hobbies - Things i actively take part in, That i actually do in real life.
- Interests - These are things i think about often, but haven't put into action (yet!).
- Dis-Interests - Things that i used to do, but now i either don't do, or i don't enjoy. Dare i say these are 'Hates?'
HobbiesMaking music - Playing my Guitars or Piano, I've been playing in bands and for fun since i was 4 years old.
Internet 'stuff' - I actually enjoy link-hopping on the internet, I like to read about random new things and find this a fun way to pass time, especially on YouTube.
|Yes - This is me|
Colouring In - I like to do this with my iPad, and in real life with actual books and pens. I know its sad but i do!
Movies - Love watching films. i used to hate going to the cinema because the sound wasn't quite right, or the projectors were slightly out of alignment and i would notice these things and it would bug the hell out of me. But now i like the new Odeon8000 or Showcase Sony4k screens, they look and sound so good. Nothing like immersing yourself in the whole experience. (Although 3D, in my opinion, still isn't running at a high enough frame rate to eliminate flickering. It bugs me and detracts from a film rather than enhances it. So i won't bother with 3D until we start running cinemas at 120fps or higher.
Photography - I don't own an expensive camera, most of my shots are taken on my blackberry, they are normally spur of the moment type photos. My friend has a mega camera, its huge, its got a ridiculous amount of pixels and every photo is a huge file size. Pointless for what i need, everything i take photos of usually end up on the interweb and so optimised files sizes of less than 1mb are ideal. My BB takes fine photo's. Its something fun, and i don't take it too seriously.
Sweets - Yummy, Yummy Sweets! The sort that your mum told you would give you fillings. The sort that make you feel sick after just half a bag. My favourites include Maom, Crunchie bars and Jelly Babies.
InterestsTravelling - I know as part of my job i get to travel the world on other people's budgets, Im not really talking about this. I like the idea of packing everything into a luxury motorhome and hitting the road for several months. (Maybe i am descended from Gypsies?).
Cooking - I see a lot of people on television making nice food and wicked looking cakes, i would love to try it but i don't have the basics to even be able to know which bowl to use. I think this one will stay as 'untried'.
SkyDiving - Although i have a bit of a fear of heights (or should that be falling?) there is something about skydiving that makes me wanna do it. I have no idea why.
Property - Maybe its because I'm getting older, but i suddenly have a desire to start a property portfolio. Maybe its because i have seen one to many episodes of 'Homes under the Hammer'. I believe that buying property wisely could be a better investment than a traditional pension, depending on where, when and what you purchase.
|Believe it or not, This is me too|
Engines - I have several of them, they are attached to the various, cars, bikes and vans i own. I used to do the basic servicing on them myself, like oil changes, filters, brakes etc. Now i don't wanna get my hands dirty and would rather pay someone else.
PC's - Thats right, a controversial one. I have been using Apple Mac's since 2008 and left PC's behind as a distant memory. I have never ever used Windows Vista or Windows 7. I have no desire to go back to loading drivers in every time i need to plug something in. I don't want to update my computer every 5days to stop viruses and malware etc.
Vegatables - I just don't understand them. They are bland. They don't look nice, You always need to eat them with something else because on their own they are as welcome as a Paedophile at Pontins. I can just about manage garden peas and the yearly 'xmas brussel sprout'. Any other vegetables can keep on jogging... Not interested!
