I like chess and anime oh noes I iz a nerd =/
Cooking good food to feed my muscles
I assumed you were going to say chasing kids around the garden and scaring them with orange peel teeth. :laugh1:
So does doing curls w/ toddlers work your biceps or triceps more?
Playing Guitar( been playing a very short time although I have had a guitar for 10 years....., it's really wierd, I find it very easy and I am learning at a quick pace).
collecting guitars(nothing special, I just see one I like and I buy it....if my wife lets me, , I have 7, 4 acoustic, 1 electric, 2 classical )
golfing(I golf about 3 times a week with a couple of my uncles and a friend, we have a trophy and everything, it's highly competetive, It's really a battle of who sucks the least, )
gambling(my family is involved in the sport of kings, horse racing, I've been around it all my life.)
Very fun, I was suprised at how fun it is. I think we're talking about the same sport, frizbee golf is what my friends call it.
Shoulders actually. I took up weightlifting about 9 months ago. That picture is actually about 6 months old now. I'm not trying to bulk up too much. I just want some definition.
Recently I began weight lifting again and doing what I can to get into the best shape possible (Eating better, working out, all that jazz) for sports. I play in the recreational flag football league and I wouldn't mind playing in the basketball league our gym has as well. Possibly softball.
So right now working out, and getting into shape, is my main focus of a hobby, of sorts, but I have a few other things I like to do or am planning to do.
Like to do:
Writing (though I don't write books or anything, just some random writing)
Video Games (Not nearly as much as I used to though)
Things I'm Getting Into
Learning to play guitar (I've had one for about 3 or 4 years now and have hardly ever touched it but my goal is to learn this year. I want to know how to play at least 8 songs, completely, by years end.)
More Bible Study and Church Activities (I'm trying to get myself more involved with my Church)
On top of all those things I'm going to be looking into enrolling in college again, next Fall, and getting another degree. I have an Associates Degree in Applied Science (For my Computer Aided Drafting job) but I'm going to go back and get my Physical Education degree so I can coach junior high/high school football and teach.
Trucking. Used to be a business, now it's a hobby
My interests are very cyclical. I usually don't do more than one at a time and I do them for about six months at a time. (except one of them)
FPS gaming (shoot'em up types, no MMORPGs)
Chess & Chess study
The FPS games usually don't last more than a month or two before I get burnout and give them away. Actually, Call of Duty: World At War just came out not long ago, and I hardly play it anymore. CoD4 was better and I played it a lot longer.
Chess is a game you can never master and I love learning it, but the studying of Chess is intense and you can burn out which is why I study for about six months and then take six month breaks.
I've been playing guitar since about 1987 or so and played for 10 years. Around 1998 I had no time play anymore with school and work so I sold my guitar and amp to a friend. About 1 or 2 ago I wanted my hobbie back so I bought a cheap guitar and amp. I've been playing quite a bit so for Christmas my wife bought be a much better guitar and amp.
Seems like a lot of us list weightlifting and getting in shape as a popular hobby. I'll tell ya', Judo and Jiu Jitsu are INSANE cardio and upperbody workouts. Anyone who wrestled in high school can attest I bet.
Yeah, it's the same game. I love playing it, it's a fun game. I started playing fifteen or so years ago. When i have the time and access to a course close by i try to play it as much as i can. But that's not always possible.
Have you played it much?
I played it back around 1995 with a friend who had several sets of disks. He moved though and I haven't played since. I had no disks of my own and nobody I knew played or wanted to play because they thought it was stupid and I just didn't feel like running around out there in 102 degree weather by myself! It was a hell of a lot of fun when I did play though.
Disks have gotten expensive but you can pick up used ones for about $5 at the store. You can get away with only getting a putter and one versatile driver.
I personally liked playing a round by myself every now and then. But usually, if people see you there by yourself, they will ask if you want to tag along with their group. Most people out there are pretty cool and friendly.
But i agree playing in TX in the late summer is brutal unless you're out there very very early in the morning. When i was still in TX, my buddy and I had a rule that in July we only play one round and in August we don't play at all unless we can make it out to the course around 7-8am.
it doesn't hurt to have a 30-pack sitting nearby
Took a few days to get back to you.
I was introduced to the game about 2 years ago, had never heard of it before. I didn't even know we had a full course at a popular well maintained park.
I've played it about 5 or so times, but it is a blast, and really is a good source of exercise because there are no " Frizbee Golf Carts", lol.
Is Maker's Mark a hobby or an addiction? I forget.
Seriously, I'm really into reinventing myself. It consumes most of my free time and spare cash. Check it out
Tomorrow (1/21/09) will be a huge part of that transformation. Tummy tuck, total body lift, and manboob removal. Yes, I'll post pics (before and after). My goal is to be able to run a 5K without keeling over. Triathlon? Maybe. Marathon? IDK.
