    Hey guys, what cool, weird, educational or exciting hobbies do you participate in .... on the rare occasion you're not dancing? :D

    Yeah. Forums-watching has become a major pastime for me. When I'm not doing that, I play violin, do lots of physical fitness stuff, cook, read, collect various things, and do volunteer work. Strangely enough, despite other appearances, I have a life.

    Anybody else?

    I wouldn't go so far as to say I have a life...

    Am I the only one here who only dances maybe once a week? School keeps me very busy, however, my pre-grad school hobbies include.

    Puppetry (not a hobby... even according to the IRS, more like a passion that I worked for throughout undergrad and miss terribly now)

    Stilt-walking, ceramics/pottery, Tai Chi, I'm a bit of a Buster Keaton Buff, drum making (I haven't developed this one as much as I would like), basic wood working, Sculpting, Drawing, Painting and Dancing.

    I feel like I'm leaving something out... but I can't recall what-- eh, oh well.

    Hmmm, I'm in grad school full time working on my Ph.D., so I guess researching and writing my dissertation should be on my list. I spend time at the gym (so that I'm in good shape to dance of course). I do ballroom photography. I work as a Teaching Assistant at UCSD (20 hours/week). I watch too much TV (mostly between 1-3am, while I'm representing for the I-R-U club)....

    Yes, writing should be on your list. The question is, is it? Hmm. Inquiring minds want to know. :lol:

    How can you say you don't have a life. Holy cow! Stilt-walking? Definitely counts as having a life. :D

    I agree...stilt walking definately counts a living!

    Hmm...outside of dance, I guess I mostly work and hang out with my fiance and new kitten. I think perhaps I'm the one without the life. Everything revolves around dance:

    Reading (alway dance publications and books)
    Writing (haven't in a while, but lately it all relates to dance things)
    Researching (dance stuff for the website)
    Website (entirely dance related)
    Class (three nights a week...all dance)
    Want to go back to school (for my bachelor's in business administration with a minor in dance in the hopes of opening my own studio some day)
    Work...this is perhaps the only non-dance thing I do. My life is very sad. :cry:

    Ooh....a non-dance activity...planning my wedding! :D

    Perhaps I should look for some new hobbies. :?

    Yes and no.

    I'm actually wrapping up my primary fieldwork and research phase this fall so, while I have done some writing so far (mostly an outline plus an extended version, ~60 pages with some prose and a lot of citations filled in) my write up phase doesn't officially commence until winter.

    I know some people who've been in the writing phase for YEARS. I also know some people who've had it wrapped up in months. I guess it's a personality thing. You seem like a go-getter type, so I'm sure you'll do just fine. :D

    sleeping, swimming, shopping, watching the tube, did I already mention sleeping..?
  14. dancersdreamland

    dancersdreamland New Member! I completely forgot to mention shopping! That is definatley a hobby of mine as well! :D

    This Owl swoops down on unsuspecting mice and rabbits and hoots all night keeping people awake. :D

    No, seriously, my other pet passions include:


    occasional photography


    Music production/recording and performance (once I've relocated to Atlanta, I'll be resuming work on my next CD. I put one out last year called "Tales From The Inflatable Forest", an all instrumental progressive rock outing. I play guitar, bass and a tiny bit of keyboards (though I won't give Chick Corea or Rick Wakeman sleepless nights anytime soon)

    Things that I used to do before the era of dancing and the forum:

    movies, especially foreign films
    hiking or walking by the beach
    hanging out with good friends and company
    "trying" to be a gourmet cook

    Hmmm....i guess i used to have another life.... :shock: :? :lol:

    Eating...yes, a definite must...especially ice excuse: it helps prevent osteoporosis (I know that's spelt wrong :? ) :wink:

    Snowboarding...never tried, but I do enjoy cross country skiing.
