Hobbies and Interests

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

I recently signed up for Good Reads, and like many other sites, it wants you to list your hobbies. I didn’t really list much there because I was more interested in getting my book collection onto there. A few minutes ago, I saw my short list at Good Reads, and I thought about all my hobbies and interests, and I decided to list them to see exactly what they are and how many I’ve got.

That’s just the basic. Click on more to see the in-depth version (not a comprehensive list — I know I’ve got more interests, but I can’t think of them!). It’s really interesting to see that I’ve got so many interests. Quite, amazing, really. No wonder I get stumped on choosing an activity nowadays when I get a huge amount of free time!
