One of my hobbies is to pick up new hobbies. Yeah thats recursive and my stack is going to overflow. Given that..
Im trying to teach myself music theory, or atleast enough of it to write interesting music for the guitar.
New technology toys fascinate me and so do games. I'm usually more interested in understanding what makes them tick than the intended purpose. Yes, when I was a child I took things apart and my parents would yell at me. I think thats how I got into computers.
I love listening to music, particularly when its done skillfully. The artistry apparent in composing and performing, regardless of genre can easily captivate me when done well. That said, simple enjoying the music is a big factor as well. To fuel that addiction, another hobby is stereo equipment. I'm addicted to improving the sound quality of my stereos.
Another hobby is trying to perfect the communication and interactions with my cats. I realize that this is litterally trying to herd cats and will never work. I have high hopes though. Yeah ok so I can tilt at windmills with the best of them.
I like to shoot at things. Paintballs at people, handguns at targets, shotguns at clays, pixels on computers. I love that crap. You can insert whatever PC statement you want here about gun control and the effect of violent games on society and what not. I still love that crap.
Really I guess what I love to do is find things that make me happy and understand how they work so I can make them better so I can be even more happy with them. So you'd think I'd be some kind of hedonist but it turns out they pay you for that insanity when you understanding how software works makes you happy.
I think what makes me different from most is the way that I look at society. I believe in the infinite capacity of people to be truly good, and also in their capacity to totally **** that up. I sort of feel like the crossing guard at highschool, you see the kids doing all this screwed up sh*tbut it makes you giggle. You yell at them because youre supposed to but you grin because you get why they are like that. Also I really love spam and kimchee. I dunno how special that is but I'm going to claim it as something that makes me unique. Oh and also, I really like McDonalds cheeseburgers. See Im a special snowflake, gimme a participation medal and a crown or something. Am I angsty yet compassionate enough? No? Maybe I'll start tutoring prison inmates or something.
