I sleep. A lot. Sometimes for more than 30 hours straight. If I'm awake for any extended period of time I take naps frequently.

When I am wake though, I play a few RPGs like Suikoden and Star Ocean. I attend a college and live with my aunt and uncle during the school year.

Mostly I read though. I hate reading in public places or in front of people. I read anything I can get my hands on in fact; biographies, sci-fi, romance, thriller, mystery, non-fiction, historical accounts, essays, text books, reviews, previews, fantasy, magazines, newspapers, anything I can. It's like an addiction, an urge to know everything, an insatiable hunger for more knowledge. It's terribly time consuming and it takes a toll on my personal relationships, I'm dreadful with people outside of a few friends.

I also collect fanart, another compulsion. Doesn't even matter if it's a series I like or have even read, I just do. Then I sort it out and fill requests on 4chan.

Quote from ladyviollet
I'm a reading freak. You know, the girl who begs her dad to buy her several books when she goes out O_o ?


That sounds suspiciously like me... I bought 25 BD (~50 USD) worth of books only last week. I would've bought more but my conscience said I'm pushing it already ;_;

Um, other than books, I guess there's video games, uni, talking to random people whether I know them or not, and playing board games. I have a friend who loves Go, so I'm learning to play that at the moment.

Oh not outside...what's that? eek

Just kidding..I'm an outdoor type person. LOVE Judo and BJJ, I paint (rarely) on canvas or watercolor, they say that left handed people are very artistic any how.....
another love would be history more like ancient history to probably WWII to the extent that when I watch TV I only watch Discovery, History Channel, History International..I dream of becoming an Archeologist but I don't want to end up as a history teacher sad (but it will be good for a change..a hot historian biggrin )

Football (soccer)..I get agitated when they call it soccer..never quite get the concept of changing the name to soccer......why dear God? I mean call American Football handball or something but Football??

Let's see....work (3 part-time jobs), walk to & from work (15-20 minutes each way), read (mainly various fiction & history), cook & bake & try out new recipes (trying to make authentic Japanese food while living in a small town in northern Idaho is....interesting...), sew (making clothes & quilts), knit, do crosswords & sudoku, listen to music, play with my kitties, do stuff with my kids & help them with their homework (and of course all the yucky stuff like laundry, dishes, cleaning house, etc.).

Learning Japanese & watching J-dorama are somewhat related to manga so I don't know if they count as "outside the fandom" or not. laugh

Quote from CapnSamwise
Quote from AuraBlaze
I usually do some sports such as tennis/basketball and also started taking up break dancing. Since it's winter right now I started to take up snowboarding too.


Ever go snowboarding in Vermont?

The answer I am looking for is "No, Sir, I would never disrespect the sanctity of the Green Mountain State with my horrible, horrible pass-time!"

You are then to prostate yourself before me while I order you taken from my sight. Anything less than that, and I put you in my "Horrible person who fills up my state with their STINKING GARBAGE" catapult and throw you into the SUN.


In case you missed it: Most snowboarders are not nice people who enjoy mucking up my wonderful mother pleasantly-enjoying-company-ing state.


Post edited due to profanity. -Samwise

Yet, there is no reason for you to be rude to that person, is there?

You're basing your response on something you believe. However, it doesn't seem like AuraBlaze us that way, at all.

Please stop acting in such a manner, or you will get banned. We don't like people that act like that (and neither do others).

I have no other hobbies aside from my general Otaku hobbies.

I snowboard.
Hate me. ;D

I also like sitting down with a nice book, occasionally some gaming and less commonly these days, drawing.

Had you asked 1-2 years ago, I'd have told you I was a hardcore mmo player.
;3

I tend to sleep a lot aswell, especially when there is no reason to get up early.

Oh, and the fact that I'm a student, but that doesn't take up a huge amout of time. >;D

I sleep a lot too. Quite a bit... fallen asleep on the bus, at school (I got woken up in the middle of the next class... didn't know where I was...), while fishing, while listening to an ex-girlfriend on the phone, while watching Lord of the Rings, while reading, while doing sit-ups (the ground starts to feel very soft after a while), on the beach while tanning (good thing there were a few girls with us - who are good friends of mine - to wake me up when my two "best buddies" had started digging a damn pit around me with the intent of burying me alive... or something)...

Yay for archeology, that was my dream for the longest time, but the cold reality of ending up in a classroom teaching history scared me out of that dream. Doesn't keep me from watching Indiana Jones over and over and over again though, even if I know I wont become an archaeologist.

If I had one question to ask God, instead of asking about the meaning of life this is the one thing I would ask: "How could You allow this!?! WHY !!? It's FOOTBALL not soccer!" Damn the world police.

As for my hobbies, I play tennis and worship Han Solo.

I knew it ! Mangaupdates admins can just erase people from existence!

Unfortunately, that's about it right now... need to get a job too (requirement for culinary school) >.<
