That is, anything not remotely related to animu?

Me, I am a huge fan of Scrubs and House. Mostly, I take notes so that when I graduate and get my own classroom, I can become an English-teaching version of Dr. Cox and Dr. House.

I also hike. A lot. I go on hiking trips even when I don't intend to, like that time I went out to get a sandwich, and ended up climbing eight miles through dense vegetation because I got lost in my hometown.

Also, I climb mountains just to spite gravity.

I'm also currently DMing a 3.5 Planescape D&D game, currently in its third incarnation after three years. Until a few weeks ago, I was co-STing a mixed-genre Vampire: The Masquerade LARP set in Arkham. To this day it's the only LARP I've ever been involved in where I didn't want to strangle everyone after a week.

That being said, one of my good friends is starting up a Men In Black game, and wants me to write the stories, play some of the NPCs and arbitrate the rules when he isn't around. So it's sort of like being an ST except I don't get to kill anyone.

Takes all the fun out of it if you ask me.

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.

I also like to draw as a hobby. I work out, semi-seriously(4 times a week with a semi-strict diet) and also do quite a bit of gaming. I own all current gen system(DS, PSP, 360, PS3 and the Wii) and own several games for each except the PSP and DS.

Balancing this with work and school is a little annoying so that's why I only read manga without watching anime(with some exceptions). Often times however, I get lazy if I sometimes stop randomly. So I have to keep going to stay motivated. Though in winter I seldom play tennis or basketball.

Normally I'm spending a ridiculous amount of time running around the city because I run Cross Country and our coach doesn't believe in breaks. Under her ideal training regimen, we would run 6 days a week all year long. I, however, cannot take the cold weather, so I hunker down in the winter. I think that is why I am becoming such an otaku. It's hard to think that In August I thought watching anime was an absurd hobby.

Besides running, I play videogames, although they are mostly arcade shooters and RPG's, and I've been playing less and less lately.

Any time not spent doing one of the above is spent either sleeping or attending the local community college.

Oh, I also make spraypaint stencils occasionally, but don't tell the authorities that. bigrazz

I usually want to kill ppl after 20-30 minutes laugh

I used to be RPG fan, now it's more like forgotten hobby. I was quite active for about 3 years, but I left it for sth else ( being a journalist for fantasy literature ).

Now, it's mostly reading books. Maybe I could go back to being a journalist? confused It was fun...and I got tons of books for free.

EDIT: forgot the shooting practices, horse riding, working ( lol ), drawing, making jewelery...and probably many more laugh

I forgot about that one.

The way my schedule works at the college this quarter, I have an hour between two of my classes, so I don't have enough time to do anything but read. I estimate that I'll get through three or four meaty sci-fi/fantasy novels by the end of the quarter. That time would probably be better spent doing the reading for my Communication Behavior class.

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.

Outside of manga/anime fandom... Like Indreju I was a big RPG fan - conventions, dramas, sessions... ah, those were the times. Now I don't have a team here where I live and, well... I haven't played in over two years *sniff sniff*
I really love to read and I spend ridiculous amounts of time/money in bookshops. Add procrastination to that. If I watch TV (very rarely), it's to watch Bones. Besides that I study, I think. Go out with friends. And sleep. Yes, that sums up my life pretty much.

Sad, isn't it?

Basically... take a guess...

I drive. Anything with four wheels will do nicely. Also, I work. Outside. I drive a tractor and do other farm related jobs.

I read, at the moment Thomas Pynchon, specifically Gravity's Rainbow and The Crying of Lot 49; I play video games, mostly strategy games like Civilization 4 and World in Conflict or sim games like SimCity 4; I browse a few non anime/manga related forums most of them being either computer or audio related and I bowl, not in a league or anything like that but with my two brothers, who are in a league, and on occasion a friend as well.

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


Friends? lol. I like my fandom more ~ teenagers are so dramatic.
