    What are your hobbies?

    What are your hobbies? I like to play the guitar, keyboard, harmonica. I also write songs and sing. I also dig all kinds of art such as digital photography and cartooning. I want to start oil painting with my wacky style. Maybe I can sell them. I bet I can. I started working out with a camp at boot camp a few years ago. There's more to me than just complaining and asking needy questions.

    So what are you hobbies?

    As with yourself Another Designer - music, largely guitar and composition. Also martial arts, have been a martial artist for 32 years now, although a current injury (broken ACL) has meant I have to take a year off

    music, guitar, piano, drums, harmonica, singing and composition. Then there is photography, video, fishing, hiking & trekking, mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding, watersports, martial arts, yoga, hypnotism, writing, cooking, gardening (I really need to learn more about it), philosophy, security and a few other things...

    As long as i can remember time has always been an issue to me, the days are too short. I always have so much to do, so i can stay up for days

    I would like to start oil painting, but my drawing skills is some of the worst i have ever seen, so I'm not sure this is a good idea

    what i would like to be better in is carpentry, but here haha well, i'm probably the worst person ever, to perform it words can't really describe how bad i am at this, so i stay away from it hahaha

    As boring as it sounds: Reading, history, and drawing/sketching.

    Photography, reading, collecting National Geographic magazines, playing my guitar sometimes, but usually while I'm waiting for files to upload or something like that.

    And I listen to music constantly.

    Dude, same here.

    I always complain about having days which were twice as long. Most of my friends look at me funny whenever I say that.

    Or at least if I didn't have to sleep!

    I recently read that you can hack your brain so you need no more than 2 hours of sleep each day.
    Sounds too tricky for me (read the section "The Catch"), but the article is interesting nonetheless

    I'm into:
    • music (metal, jazz, rock, country, folk)
    • movies (horror, sci-fi, comedy, documentary, other)
    • I play the guitar/bass and I write songs
    • I like the outdoors
    • I enjoy American baseball (Texas Rangers)
    • I like to mow my lawn
    • I'm also into discussing politics (the failing economy, the global conspiracy)
    but my biggest hobby is web design/development, the technologies that accompany it as well as computers and tech in general.

    Oh and I like kitty's

    Right now my only hobby is building websites. Also sleeping, I suppose. What else is that if not a hobby, there must be a reason to do that utter waste of time!

    Only if you can keep true to what it is about your hobby that you love. With turning your hobby into your "bread and butter" can slowly kill your love for it if you're not careful. With a hobby you work on what you want to work on, not crap for other people. So just keep that in mind. I've come to the brink of throwing in web development because of a company that I worked for.

    I do things that I enjoy doing but not sure if I would call them hobbies as such, rather just things I do with my time like play games, listen to music and watch stuff (movies, tv shows, documentries). Of course there is more to what I do but at the moment it seems like work, sleep, work

    Very true, that's what happened to me and software development, I loved doing it as a hobby and I burned out doing it professionally (even though I was doing OK in it). I'm a better web designer and I love the subject a lot more anyway so things are much better than a few years ago

    Uhm...I don't think I can respond to that well. I guess people do like my artwork and illustrations. At least I've never heard any complaints and I'm being paid well for them.
