What's your hobby?

Bwaha! First Chit-Chat post ever, excluding the test thread!

-cough- Now, back to being mature... So, I'm curious. Does anyone here have any specific hobbies or activities that you like to do? Such as hiking, creative stuff, gaming, or anything of the sort?

I love to draw, it's one of my favorite things to do. At one point I wanted to be a professional artist and draw a comic book someday, but I'm starting to learn that it's just not for me, and that I'd rather draw for fun.

I also love photography. I might not be very good at it right now, but I just love taking pictures of nature. It's really relaxing.

Edit: And gaming. How'd I forget that? I love just about any type of game, especially if it's online.

I used to draw but I lost my skill if I had any lol, I love photography and rock climbing! They are my passions. Even though I don't get to go climbing as often anymore.

Right now, my main hobbies are my birds and gaming, mostly online Working full time and going to school full time doesn't leave much time for anything else! Oh, I love to read as well!

I wish I could draw - I'm always so envious! I have a DeviantArt account and I just lurk and look at other people's work

My hobby is my birds but every once in awhile I get the urge to pick up a needle and thread and quilt.

My hobbies include amateur photography (nature and animals), outdoor-activities (hiking, nature observance, etc.), building websites, managing online communities (forums), caring for my pets, reading a good medical or sci-fi thriller ... I think that covers all of it!

My birds are my main hobby. I enjoy working and playing with them every day and breeding a few clutches each year for friends and family.

I enjoy photography and love taking photos of my children and my birds.

I sing in a men's a cappella chorus. We rehearse once a week and do an annual show as well as several other appearances in the community during the year. We also go to division and district contests. I sing in a quartet as well. We perform at the chorus show and do shows for various events during the year. The most fun thing we do is the annual singing Valentine's we deliver as a fund raiser for the chorus.

My number 1 is my linnies. I also like to bead, not jewellery but just about anything else, photography, crochet, read, and play with my Nintendo DS. I also do computer support for a small number of clients, family and friends.

Birds aside.
Hmmm.
MMA or at least submission grappling but I haven't done it in a while so I guess it's hard to qualify that as a hobby.

Playing and making computer/video games.
Hmmm.

I like to... ah... crap...
I have some exercise equipment... ok I need a life.

It's a big part of what's in UFC "Ultimate fighting" and similar sports where you not only having punches and kicks, but throws and "submission" moves which would be bone-breaking locks or choke holds. (though the actual bone breaking is rarely one because people know when to "submit" before that happens.

Anyway it's somewhat popular now, which stinks, because when I started training it as a kid nobody knew it and it was more fun that way. :P

Breeding Linnies and taking pictures of my kids and birds are my hobbies. I don't have much time for anything else.
