    Question Hobbies & Interests

    Your user profile here includes a place where you can share your hobbies, yet lots of folks don't fill them out for whatever reason.

    Well here's a general thread to share and discuss your hobbies & pastime interests. Anything you enjoy doing in your spare time.

    Many folks have skill-sharpening hobbies such as playing a musical instrument, playing sports, woodcrafting, working on cars or computers, building model kits, photography, picture painting, sewing and so on.

    Others enjoy collecting stuff like toys, cards, coins, dolls, etc..

    Popular pastime activities often include going to the beach, hanging out with friends and family, watching TV, surfing the web, playing video games, shopping, eating and sleeping.

    The reason this came up was this...

    I stayed at mom's place the other night, when as I was about to put my shirt on a hanger, I realized half the hangers in the closet were covered in yarn crochet. I momentarily thought to myself, "What was grandma thinkin' when she decided to cover hangers in crochet? What purpose does that serve for the hanger? Does it make the shoulder of the garment look less creased? Or does it just make the hanger look more "pretty"?" Then I thought about it again and realized all it was, was something relaxing for her to do to make the time go by. Which is why many folks take up a hobby to begin with.

    What are yours?

    I sew, for work and relaxation.
    In fact when we moved I had to shut the shop down for a month and I found myself sewing the kids clothing and just sewing for the heck of it because I missed it. I ended up making myself 5 dresses one day and 3 pairs of Pj's for the kids. I was so stressed out I locked myself in my room and went crazy.

    It is my escape from the kids, I can concentrate on what I am doing in my own room and shut the world out.
    Since when is psycho a bad thing??

    During her grade school years, my sister used to sew her own school clothes, because she didn't like what was available in the stores. She'd have a new garment every week because of that. She's really good at it.

    Auntie, my mother has a hat and feather lei collection like that. At one time, she was really into making feather leis. I think she took classes from some lady on Kapahulu ave..

    Before he got married and had a baby, my friend was into collecting Hot Wheels and Gashapons, which are tiny, intricately-detailed vending machine toys.

    This is just a small portion of his collection...





    The Ultraman dioramas are super cool, even including exposion plumes and exhaust trails of missles in flight. The painted detail and accuracy are amazing.

    Plenty of them were found on eBay, although some were also bought right here at Toys 'N Joys, Shirokiya and MechaHawaii.

    Auntie Lynn I love it! I make my own hats too, although it's only an occassional thing. This one is my current favorite although it's been too warm to wear it:



    I guess most of my hobbies can be summed up by my websites.
    MacRatLove, my webcomic, Better Holes and Garbage, my rat website, and Perfectly Inadequate, my music site. I've been doing website design for about eleven years now. Every once in a while I think I might want to pick it up professionally, but I can't do the more complicated things like flash.

    I've been practicing Kendo for almost 9 months, and I love it. It's a good stress reliever, and I'm in the best shape that I've been in years. It's good to know that if/when I go back to Hawaii, the Kendo there has its own federation and is thus very active.

    I want to start by saying that for me a hobby is a way to have a good time and relax. It so happens that I work six days a week at a brokerage company. Since I am only at the beginning of my career, I work a lot. And I desperately need rest. Because of this, hanging out with lovely ladies became my hobby. I use the services of one company, namely VIP international companion. I have a great rest at the end of a difficult working month. It once helped me forget a difficult relationship.
