Other Interesting Hobbies You May Have

Wed Apr 18, 2001 11:19 am

Just wondering what other hobbies you all may have. My other hobby is building R/C airplanes and collection diecast airplanes. So what are some of your hobbies?

I have many interests, but I often don't have much time to devote to them. Aviation/airlines has only risen to "hobby" status within the past six months.

I have two burmese cats, however I don't consider them to be "hobbies." They are family members.  Smile

I devote a fair amount of time to playing the flute and golfing, so I suppose they count as true hobbies. However, I have many other interests:

--music (all sorts)

--swimming
--running
--basketball

--architecture/design

--cooking/world cuisines

--trains
--cars
--submarines

--meteorology
--astronomy

--world affairs
--the environment
--political theory
--sociology
--physiology

Reading just about anything --
medical thrillers
christian fiction

Geography -- I recently bought the DK World Atlas (pub. 1999) which is in color and has multiple maps of each region, showing boundaries, land forms, economic bases, etc.

In with geography I guess goes highways, canals, and railroads. I love traveling and traveling in different ways. This summer I might fly to Toronto, then take VIARail to Smith's Falls.

Pets, especially cats (I volunteer at an animal shelter.) Recently I've gotten some time in with rabbits and guinea pigs as well.

Driving. I just love driving. Too bad my car just went kaput.

I also like doing research on a variety of topics, especially in medicine. One of my favorite subjects is epilepsy. I've known quite a few people who have seizure disorders.

I have many, besides aviation. I collect Russian medals and militaria, along with some other militaria that gets into my hands. I have collected coins for over 12 years now, have over 700. I also collect paper money and drum sticks from punk rock concerts.
Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.

Walkmans... see a part of my collection:





I have spent a total of $500 on headphones so far, but that's hardly close to what the real audiophiles spend on theirs.  Big thumbs up

And my other hobbies:
- music
- making web pages
- writing (trying to make a start)

My problem is that I have to many of them, so I know a little bit about a lot of stuff, but I'm not really a master of any of them. Here's some of the ones that I've tried and then got bored with:

Flyfishing
Snorkleing
Archery
Scale airplane models
Skiing - alpine and nordic
Climbing
Tennis
Rock Collecting
and the list goes on...

Here's some of the ones that I'm still pretty active in...

Drawing
Photography
Guitar Playing (a lot of celtic, folky, maritime type stuff)
Flying real airplanes
Flying FS 98 (Just flew a Continental Exp. Beech 1900D from ORD to CMI, reduced the visability to 1 mi, and shot the ILS with the DME arc... fun stuff.)
Collecting state quarters
Collecting Lighthouse Memorabilia (I lived on Lake Huron for a year)
Mountain Biking
Daydreaming about learning how to sail
Other general type daydreaming
Just generally spending time outside
Baseball

And last but not least

GIRL CHASING!!

-My biggest passion is flying. While i am finishing my CFI i am flying about once a week, doing lesson plans and such while my instructor prods my head and plays like the most idiotic psycho student you could imagine. I love his quote- "They mean well, but they don't know well.... stay on top of things."

-Writing/recording music with my band, Thorn Given. I play guitar and djembe, plus do some vocals. Playing live is one of my favorite pasttimes...nothing really like watching 300-500 people going nuts to music you wrote.

-Recording/producing- this goes along with the previous one..i own a digital recording studio with a minidisc and CD mastering system. I am quickly getting booked for the summer... 3 local bands have asked me to record about 10 songs each for them, and plus i am producing my band's CD too. The phrase "making money" comes to mind.. now if only i can finish my CFI, ill have some nice cash going around.

-Going to hardcore concerts, buying CD's- I own 350 CD's... need i say more?


-Sports- i love football and weightlifting especially..neither of which i get to do a whole lot, but i still workout as much as possible.

-Skiing- Snow skiing in the Rockies.... i love it.

-Chilling with friends, clubbing
Chicks dig winglets.

Besides playing around on airliners.net and airplanes. My other top 3 hobbies are:
1. Working on my b/f's car, (well I used to, now I just need some ramps now so I can work on it again).
2. Watching movies, (I am already well known at the local blockbuster and was well known at my old blockbuster)
3. Cooking experiments, usually its some kinda foreign dish. Alot of times the food tastes great and I know I can cook it, but then there are other times when it just turns out to be nasty and I have to throw it away then go out for chinese.

Lets see...

Anything to do with aviation, including but not limited to:

flight sim (IFR stuff, mostly)
SATCO controlling
spending hours on end at the airport
visiting ATC facilities
reading aviation books
taking lessons soon!

sports that I enjoy:

baseball
golf
shooting (see below)

Like Adam84, I like to do cooking experiments (especially if they turn out good!). One of my favs: marble fudge brownies...mmmm

I like guns, too. Collecting, cleaning, shooting... definately shooting is the most fun. But its a weather-limited sport (unless you go to an inside range- no fun). Hopefully this summer I'll get out and do some shooting.

Theres probably a lot I left out...
