So what other interests do you people have?

Most of the talk on here is about freshwater fish and there is some saltwater fish talk too. Since this is a general discussion forum, what are your other interests?

I play rec league outdoor soccer multiple times a week in the spring and fall. I've been buying NC State season football tickets since 1996 and used to buy men's basketball tickets for a while after they moved to PNC arena. I don't have a job right now, so I have wasted an entire day playing on the internet. I also like drinking craft beer. We have a lot of good micro breweries in Raleigh NC now.

Ah cool! It's always nice to have a general/politics/news forum no matter what your message boards main topic is. I actually find myself posting in those more than I do the sports forums on the NC State sports message boards. Maybe someday those forums will really take off on here too.

They used to have a Hot Topics forum on here, I have read, but it didn't work out.

Okay then, here it is!!! I enjoy Lady Gaga (obviously, you're the best Mommy Monster!), fish (couldn't have guess that one, could ya?), books (teen novels mostly), movies (comedy, but I'm finding that I like other stuff too), game apps (stuff like Everlove: Rose and Adventure Escape: Murder Manor), Once Upon A Time (that counts as separate from movies, right?), shopping (major shopaholic here, can't hold on to my money for long), clothes (uh yeah, high heels, makeup, you get the idea), surfing the web (MSN is one of my favorite yet most frustrating haunts), playing pranks and telling jokes (gotta keep the world funny), being weird (in my case, definitely counts), researching anything that I'm remotely interested in, singing (I'll start singing a song when the mood strikes me right), dancing (same with singing, I dance my heart out, cuz' the music and I are one), writing (I write in a journal every night, been doing it for a while now, couple of years at least)...... oh yeah, and Fish Lore haha!

I too enjoy ebay. I have a collection of all sorts of memorabilia from most of the FIFA World Cups and Summer Olympic soccer tournaments that the US Men's National Team has played in.

Video games, cosplay, and art are my major hobbies beside fishkeeping. I'm really into collecting collector's editions of video games, cool card decks (...mostly video game related, haha), and pewter figurines (dragons, knights, stuff like that).

I mostly make costumes from, I'm sure you can assume, video games. Right now I'm working on my first attempt at making armor for a cosplay from the game Dark Souls (which I'm OBSESSED with) and it's coming out FANTASTIC if I do say so myself.

Haha, I don't like either team. Any chance that the game ended in a draw? ;D

Nope. Giants returned the kickoff for a TD (stadium got real quiet), went on to win

I've played for a few years now. 12 man league. I've never finished lower than 3rd. Thinking about getting out, but I know I'll catch grief.

I love goats. Someone pointed out that I'm a Capricorn recently and wondered if there was a connection! I'd never thought about it! I'd love to live in the country one day and have goats, a beautiful pond, aviary and probably a bunch of other animals and get into some fun outdoorsy hobbies. Lots of walking and discovering

I just passed my private pilot exam on Monday, so aviation is a huge part of my life (wouldn't be going to college for it if it wasn't). I also love fishing, hunting, mountain biking, airsoft, guns both old and new, guitar, and WWII re-enacting.

Interesting to see quite a lot of musical people here.

I am very outdoorsy, enjoy walking, gardening, doing crafty things with the kids, and I love most animals and intend to keep goats and chickens in the future! Fish and goats are my favorite animals and someone pointed out to me recently funnily enough that I'm a Capricorn, represented in the zodiac as half goat half fish! Haha. I'm also slightly addicted to minecraft and skyrI'm on xbox 360 but don't play online

(I say recently, it wasn't that recent now and I think I probably said all this before anyway!)

platymum2801 I used to have pigmy goats and Rhode Island Reds at my last house. What a great time that was.

Also, skyrI'm is fantastic, I played that game for a solid year and a half, and have recently been introduced to minecraft. I'm addicted as well.

You're so lucky philip165 we live in London,England and have literally zero outside space right now but we're currently house hunting in the countryside.. wahooo my dreams will hopefully come true.

Have fun with minecraft! My daughter and little brother are on it right now blowing stuff up with tnt!

platymum2801 I was living out on almost 30 acres out in the country back when I was still living with my parents. I recently got married and moved into the city for work (we both work on opposite sides of Charlotte, and technically my wife's job is in South Carolina.

I will say, I intend to move back out into the country whenever I can, hopefully somewhere out on the western side of the US where the weather is more to my liking and mountains are abundant.
