We've had threads like age.. jobs etc.. but what do you guys do in your lives?

I play a lot of piano - keyboard in a band- play squash/football, and laze around as much as humanly possible (haven't been in anything you'd call employment for 3 years now :D). Played some online poker and still play occasionally, though it requires effort..

I play a lot of piano too! Mostly i'm practicing acrobatics, since i'm going to a cirkus scool. I also do a lot of card-manipulation. Last two weeks i've been spending about 50% of my awake time to watch that 70's show. I've allmost seen all seasons now! For the third time..

Acrobatics!? Well, Construct users must be agile to be able to avoid random crashes and bugs coming out from every possible place :).

I love swimming. It's part of my life. Whenever I have time, I go swimming at the pool or in the sea, it's really satisfatying.

The other thing I like is computer gaming and programming; also game creation.

My other minor hobby is soccer

I'm into computer graphics, using Photoshop and 3D stuff like, generally trying to create things I think look good. I like movies, I have quite a few DVDs, probably near 700, horror and comedy being my favourite genres. I also like gaming, mainly PC gaming, first person shooters and stuff like that. My job is working for a large newspaper company, mainly DTP stuff with a slight graphic design edge.

i'm a Hawks cheerleader, sweeping the ladies off their feet on a regular basis as well performing gymnastics for the routines.
i'm a Costco employee, waking up at 3am to start my 4am shift to make the warehouse look good before it opens.
i'm multilingual, currently learning to speak Italian with the other romance languages right after i finish teaching myself and i also know enough Swedish, Japanese, Mandarin, and Russian to travel around.
i'm slowly learning to play the electric guitar in between everything else i do.
i also installed Xubuntu on my lower end machine recently so i'll be toying around with Linux for a while.

Same here. I actually went to school for graphic design and 3d animation, but I dropped out my third year. I kinda had a mental breakdown during one of the finals weeks. I haven't modeled anything since then.

Some day I hope to go back to school, but I kinda screwed myself financially so now I owe an assload of money before I can go back. Ho-hum. Such is the life of an art-school dropout.

I still do some photoshopping now and then, but nothing too special.

I also dig movies, but after taking some film classes I tend to be more critical of them. I can usually guess the entire plot of a movie within the first five or ten minutes, just based on the introduction of the main characters. Often times I can guess it just based off the trailer. Kinda sucks watching movies when you have knowledge of plot structure and character archetypes, but it makes movies that I can't guess the plot to all the more enjoyable.

Oddly enough though, having a little background knowledge has made watching bad movies more fun. I know it's going to be bad, so I can just turn off the analytical part of my brain and enjoy it. It's good movies that I have a hard time enjoying thoroughly, because I'm always "behind the scenes" so to speak.

I also like reading, but I haven't really found the time lately to get into anything I'd recommend. I read Duma Key by Stephen King about a week ago, the first Stephen King book I'd read in about ten years. It started off okay, but eventually devolved into the same old crap that was the reason I stopped reading Stephen King in the first place. I don't recommend it, unless you happen to like crappy horror writers.

I used to play some classical music back when i had a teacher, but i never really liked it. Now i mostly play by ear, and I've practised that so much now that i can play most songs right after i hear them. I also make my own music. Then i use a midi keyboard and make the music in Reason.

Other facts:

Age: 17
Lives: Stockholm, Sweden
length: 180 cm
weight: 70 kg muscles
