What do you do in your time off, when you aren't working, studying, or other important things? Do you like to read, or watch TV? Do you spend more time on PC than anything else? Do you tend a garden or listen to music?

What are your hobbies? And note, this is specifically about when you aren't doing chores or housework of any kind. So, when you are relaxing.

Here's a casual list:
  • ROM Hacking
  • JAVA programming
  • Drawing a manga
  • Streaming anime
  • Browsing forums
  • Working out
  • Sketching
I have many interests. However I often find myself bored when I suddenly stop doing something important, so there are times when I just doze off.
This is my December . . .

I used to like to read and so I have been trying to incorporate that into my list of downtime activities, but haven't done so successfully yet. Over the past year I've really found I like to go out and walk while talking to someone or listening to music. I honestly can't go a day anymore without going out for a walk or a jog. It's just really relaxing for me and helps get rid of any stress I might have built up. Besides that I usually go on the computer just for Tumblr/talking to people/watching movies.

I browse forums, play Pokemon, watch TV, listen to music or read books to relax. Sometimes I go walking, when it isnt too hot outside.

For the last seven months, I've spent pretty much every second of spare time I have here. Before that, I used to watch a lot of TV and read a lot of books. I still watch tons of TV, but it's simultaneous with being here lol.

I really do need to start reading books again though, I have a growing pile that I need to tend to.

Video games, TV, the internet, watching anime on my computer, listening to 80's music, reading manga or hotel literature, and taking naps.

I do a lot of writing in my spare time. I run a small blog and I'm writing a very brilliant novel. Other than that, I draw quite a bit; mostly for my Art Coursework before I finished at school, now I do it mostly to accompany the novel! Other than that, the usual computer/video games/music deal.

  • Checking out new artists,
  • Checking out PC,
  • Playing games,
  • Going out for drinks,
  • Chilling out by doing nothing.

Sounds about right!

Mostly I play video games, although I spend a lot of time on MSN, forums and Livejournal, and I do a great deal of reading. I write reviews from time to time as well.

Usually I'm just lazy and I go on the computer to play the Sims. I'm asking for all the expansion packs for Christmas. xD

If I'm feeling somewhat ambitious then I'll go for a walk, draw, or read. Of course I read pretty heavy stuff, like informational books (I don't remember the last time I picked up a fiction book to read!) so I have to really be awake to do it.

occasionally watch live football (soccer) matches if there is one. I watched barca vs milan game and it was really good. Otherwise I spend time doing homework, study, or play video games and come on PC on my spare time.

- In terms of time spent, I browse the Internet most often. I need distractions.
- Writing is my favorite hobby, when I get around to doing it. It's so nice to get my thoughts onto paper (...well, in document files, I guess). Makes me feel ~creative~ even though I'm not really.
- Video games, because I enjoy playing them. It's not something I do too often unless I'm really in a gaming mood.
- Walking, in a way. Taking walks helps me clear my mind and get ideas for my writing, in addition to being awesome exercise.
- Reading. It's something I don't do nearly as often as I should but I still enjoy it when I do.
- At the very bottom of the list, watching TV. Don't have cable right now, but my roommate and I rent TV series/anime/cartoons on occasion. He has Netflix now so we can stream stuff too.

...why am I explaining all these answers when no one else is, anyway? XD
If you're looking for me,
I'm hiding on Reddit or Twitter.

Note that no interneting has been included in this list.

  • Video gaming, though I'm kind of picky in my game choice. (I don't have Call of Duty or anything, most of the games RPGs or third-person shooters.)
  • Playing with my dog
  • Just walking around the neighborhood
  • Writing fiction
  • More video gaming
  • Writing unnecessary fiction, mainly because it sticks in my mind before I decide to get it over with and write it down.
  • Read one of the books in my bookshelf, though I ran out of new ones to read. T_T
  • Music, music and more music! :D

I will be moving my account to Songbird over the course of immediately. The signature will stay as is for posterity and reference.

I like to draw and talk to people online :3 If I can't get to paper/pencil or internets, then I pace and listen to music, making up stories in my head that I'll never actually write down but are fun to make up anyway.

I have headphones in my ears all the time, listening to music. Even when I'm doing important things.
Most of the time when I'm bored and have nothing to do, I'm on the computer.
I watch TV about six hours a week, and it's designated for shows I'm interested in watching. So, no, I don't go to that when I'm bored or looking to relax.
I've found that I'm picking up books more and more now, so next to internet time, that's what I usually do the most.
When I'm relaxing, I usually just like to lay down on my bed and daydream / think of interesting things for stories and then end up forgetting about them a few minutes later.
Occasionally I'm writing (fiction). I wish to do it more, but unfortunately, I have to wait until ideas and inspiration come to me in order to write efficiently / up to my own standards.
