The activity I like the most is driving. It's relaxing and liberating and a great time to think.

I love tennis, if I haven't already made that clear enough here. Its something I'm actually really good at, and its so much fun and I have some really good friends at the place I go to for lessons. Besides that I love music in general, its a nice way to take my mind off things. :)
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

I love playing guitar, it's a release for myself and I tend to get lost in my own little world while it's happening.

My favorite activities are working out, listening to music, hanging out with friends, and playing basketball. Working out and listening to music let me escape from the real world, while friends and basketball allow me to connect with people.

Something I spend quite a bit of time doing is drawing, assuming that counts. It's just what I do when I'm bored or, well, want to draw. I:
I can't think of a good signature.

I like doing creative things. Writing, doodling, even deciding which socks match what I'm wearing. When I can't do something even a little creative each day I feel so withdrawn, like I haven't slept.

Oh, yeah, sleeping. I really enjoy sleeping, too.

I'd just as soon kiss a Wookiee

Listening to music, reading, sleeping, games, and of course talking to friends would have to be a few of my favorite activities. Reason why I like those things in particular is because they all really help me unwind after getting home from work and all.

Either playing guitar, or burning my house down spending hours in the kitchen and doing nothing but cooking. Both express me pretty damn well, if not perfectly.

Karate - This is more like a way of life for me actually rather than a hobby / activity.

Piano - This helps bring balance into my life by focussing on my less aggressive side.

Pokemon TCG - This is simply a game I enjoy and it provides a good socializing outlet too.

Playing video games, volunteering at the animal shelter and watching TV are my favorite activity outside of the internet, I especially enjoy the volunteering because I can leave the house.

Making clothes. I can do it during pretty much anything that provides background noise and it's just so exciting to think about what the final product is gonna look like.

Also reading on my phone because it's so much easier to manage than a book and I can do it almost anywhere.

I like writing - and by that I don't mean creative writing (though I do love that also) I mean actually writing. Handwriting, to be exact. I love writing particular words to try and perfect my handwriting and I find myself doing it with my finger in the air when I'm being absent-minded.

I also like driving, watching movies in cinemas, watching TV and reading. I feel like the words "long walks on the beach" are about to escape my fingertips, but rest assured I will never let that happen.

I like to hang out with my friends and play basketball along with listening to music. It's almost Spring here so I'll definitely get to play some more basketball.

There are many things I like doing for my enjoyment. I try to make most of my activities self-enriching one way or another, and I always look at them from a creative point of view. I like watching educational videos on youtube, especially mathematics-related. Sometimes, when I am bored in class, I'll just use a graph paper notebook to start fiddling with index statistics, or I'll draw hilbert curves. I think that working with mathematics is a lot more creative than many people suspect, which is also why some people find it odd that a guy who excels at mathematics in school also has a hobby in writing.

Oh, yeah, on that account: writing. It's one of my most procrastinated on, but most enjoyable pastimes. Most of my writing stems from roleplaying nowadays, because it tends to be a bit harder to procrastinate for several months on that with peer pressure and the fact that not posting in a thread for several months means you're out of the RP. I really want to try and write original works, but I am often tied between writing furry fiction or making it more mainstream audience friendly. Then I also have a big fear for the blank page. Just starting a novel is terrifying to me, but once I make the first strokes, pen down the first sentences, the words roll onto the screen at bullet pace. I like to create stuff, and I want to create a lot. I sometimes draw maps of fictional countries, with complete geography, rivers, town names, sub-divisions, and when I feel like it, I start laying out the political system, culture, history, economy, etc., sometimes even created a constructed language for its inhabitants.

Of course, I thoroughly enjoy reading too. I've been devouring books again since the beginning of this year: Catch-22, The Catcher in the Rye, Fahrenheit 451, and currently Slaughterhouse-Five. I'm looking forward to starting reading Pullman's His Darkest Materials trilogy after I am done cackling at 157 pages of Vonnegut's wit.

When I am just in need of winding down, I play myself some pokémon games; try to relieve myself from a stressed out day. There's something that always captivates me about pokémon games, and has still held its grasp on me after all the years I've played it that makes me feel so blithe when playing it. Maybe it's the tune, maybe it's the thought of playing the story of a character who finds friendship in places he doesn't expect to find them. As with almost everything, I try to play pokémon creatively, and I've made a fun project to write my pokémon Ruby nuzlocke run into a story that I have currently been procrastinating on for...lemme check...3 months. Go me!

I do think that my need to constantly create for my artistic self-enrichment has helped me to find purpose in wanting to consume knowledge in a broad scale of topics. I am apt at linguistics, I can work with complex statistics easily, I know my geography pretty well, I read through articles of world history, I explore literary themes, and drastically improve my ability to eloquently state my thoughts in English words. It helped me become more world aware, I think.
RP's I am in:
Pokemon: Journeys Through Novia - Glyn Schaffer

"And they tell me there are people who are normal, but I don't know what they look like because I've never met one. And neither have you, so why not compare yourself to real people instead?"
"Three lives of a gamer: the first'll be your best, because you can always restart if it isn't; the second pales in comparison, and the game will cheat you out; but the third one's going to be better, because it gets do or die from then."

I like playing video games, drawing, watching anime, browsing the web, and oddly enough I actually like cleaning and organizing my room, lol. I love to read and write but lately I haven't found a lot of time to really engage myself in those activities.

I love when my room is spotless and so organized, haha.
