Default Any other hobbies?

Well, I just inherited a (supposedly) 40 gallon aquarium that was leaking a bit. I've had fish almost my whole life, so the teacher just gave me the tank, along with the filter, gravel, plant, and everything else along with some fish. Unfortunately, the leak was bigger than I thought so I had to totally remove the bottom glass and redo it. I won't be able to test it until Sunday, so cross your fingers! Anyway, I've always had fish tanks around my house and in my classrooms, or in my various offices throughout my life, so what's one more tank, huh? Oh, and the tank turned out to be a 30 gallon tank instead, but it's still big!

Anyway, it seems that I'm trying to fill my life with extra hobbies. Lately, I've taken up RC Airplanes. Been practicing on a GWS FMS flight simulator and looking to save a bit of my for a Hobbyzone Super Cub Trainer soon. Pretty cool stuff! I have an Estes ROG Flight trainer, that's really just a toy that's two channel, but it's still fun.

Add to that paintball, golf, playing video games, reading, writing and internet surfing, collecting baseball cards and comic books (I know, I've done it for years, though!) another hobby is all I need! So, what extra hobbies do you guys have?

I enjoy skateboarding, snowboarding, being a gun whore , playing video games, reading, and playing golf. Thats about all I can think of right now but I'm sure there are more.

Default Re: Any other hobbies?

eh, with no money and no way to get around, i dont do much. i used to skateboard a lot, play a lot of video games (FPS, RTS, need for speed, RPG, final fantasy), and i used to be big on legos. right now i want to go hunting, but probably wont happen this year. i love CARS!!!! mostly older muscle cars and some exotics, but im starting to like tuners more and more. i wish i had the mechanical know-how to work on em... i play guitar or bass occasionally but im not really into it. i spend most of my time messing with paintball stuff or listening to music. i would die without my tunes... i keep my stereo and/or my windows media player on at all times.

Does staring at women count as a hobby?

I absolutely live and breath slalom skiing. Also really love golf, snowboarding, down hill skiing, wakesurfing, and snowmobiling. Basically just summed up my life except for school... and girls.
