What's the latest thing to catch your interest?
What about it was interesting for you?
How interested are you and do you think you'll stay interested for long?
Is everyone going to copy these questions in their responses?


So my "latest" interest has been in gothic lolita fashion, although it's probably more accurate to say it's the interest I've most recently done something about since I've been at least a little interested in it for a while. There's something I find really classic and charming about some of the styles I've seen, like there's a kinda timeless quality to them, I think. I've gained more appreciation for different styles of clothing in the last couple of years and this is one of the styles that stuck out to me. I'm just starting to learn more about it and I'd like to think I could stay interested in it for a while (since it seems like it can easily become an expensive hobby).

My latest interest is the works of Sutton Foster. For those unfamiliar, Ms Foster is one of the best Broadway actresses working today; one with the whole package: great voice, amazing acting chops, brilliant dancing skills. For the past few days, I've been watching YouTube clips of her singing/performing and it's been illuminating that one woman can do such a variety of stuff on a stage. I don't think this is going to be a fad or anything; I'm definitely not going to keep these on repeat, but I think I'm going to take an interest in her career, especially if she decides to make a break into film or TV (apart from a token appearance on Law and Order: SVU, which seems obligatory for every actor working in New York).

To the point, my latest interest is in cooking. Any dish I prepare blows, but recently-after I tasted some professionally cooked food-I started to consider cooking as a part-time hobby, which would simultaneously make my life quality better. I'm fascinated by the world of ingredients and flavors, and the creativity cooking offers.
I'm really interested in cooking and I hope that the passion won't go away until I at least become content with my own dishes.

Lately I've been interested in spriting. I installed GIMP and I've been having some fun with it.

I'd have to say getting my hands on FEAR 3 right now and working on the No One Left Behind achievement on Mass Effect 2 as well.

Also thinking of doing a playthrough of something like Pokemon Heart Gold but that would be for personal fun if anything and writing a story or 2 later this year.

I've been interested in how I've begun to understand the concepts of calculus. I feel strange.

One of my recent current interests is Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series. I didn't really like it due to being faithful to the original show, but after falling out of the loop, I decided to watch an episode and it was hilarious. Right now, I'm very interested in it and I think I'll be interested in it for another few months/years or so.

Most recent is probably my interest in some older anime series. I've been into anime for a while but I'm recently discovering older series from before the 2000's that have caught my interest.

I've been interested in school (my classes/teachers) lately, even though I never was before. Kind of weird and interesting because school's starting soon... So yeah.

Recently I've been really interested in traveling. I've always liked going on vacation, but I always wanted to do the same thing and I recently got interested in all the other sight-seeing I could do.

I think I got interested in it because I just realized that there's actually a lot of things to go see that are related to computer history (what I'm really interested in!) And then I started to look up other things near those attractions, like where else we could go while there. And that turned into huge lists of places I want to go and vacations I want to go on.

And yeah, that's kinda how I got interested in it. I think I'll be interested in it for a while, cause I love the thought of getting out of this place and seeing the world. I also like vacation planning, I like budgeting the vacation, planning an itinerary, and stuff like that. Even if we never actually end up going on the vacation at all.

My recent interest is Mark Foster. But we're getting married, so that won't go away.

Anyway, I normally can stay interested in things for quite a while. Depends on what they are. If too many people get into it though, I tend to back off, because I've always been the one to not like things that everyone else likes, so when things get too popular, I start feeling uncomfortable with it. And no, that won't happen with Foster the People because I said so.

What's the latest thing to catch your interest?
C-Pop. (Chinese Pop)

What about it was interesting for you?
The songs and some of the artists that I have already liked for some time.

How interested are you and do you think you'll stay interested for long?
I'm pretty interesting, not as much as K/J-Pop but it's still an interest. It'll stay as long as the artists I like keep producing music.

Well I used to have a big interest in movies, but then it faded off until I had my first film class the other day and now I am re-interested. BUT ANYWAYS, I hope to stay interested for a while because I know how boring it is to have no interests. :(

I support free and open source software, and use gnu/linux as my main operating system. The thing about it that is interesting is the philosophy between the foss movement; that we should have the freedoms to use software how we want, the freedom to share and copy software, the freedom to learn and adapt, and the freedom to work with others. I am very interested in it and will be for sometime, someday I hope free software will be the first choice, and we don't have to be forced to be restricted by drm, or use microsoft or apple's non-free software.

My interest is back to sort Alternative, Indie, Pop sorts of music from electronic and stuff like Dubstep, Drum and Bass and stuff. I like all music, but I tend to shift between genres as they catch my eyes and ears and sort of chill there until something else catches me, and it was Oh Land!'s 'White Nights' if anybody is familiar!

Also another one, which is sort of related, but not, is beatboxing! I've always liked making sounds and beatboxing, but I've been watching a lot of Beardyman and getting inspired and stuff, so I'm liking that more and more by the day!

Homestuck has caught my attention recently. I'm on a complete hype of it.

It's funny, and complex. I actually have to pay full attention when I read or I'll not understand the next bit, and I like that.

I think I'll stay interested for a while. It's ongoing, afterall.

HoNk hOnK :o)
