    Chess. I literally play everyday, practically. I enjoy practicing to get better, challenging my mind, sharpening my skills, getting more mental stimulation. But if I don't have time for chess game (that I play online) I will try to play chess tactics (puzzles). Which is basically to find the best sequence(s) of moves to gain the optimal advantage. It's too bad that I don't know anybody who plays (at my level or near it) except my father whom I barely see.

    I'm an obsessed hard rock/metal music nerd. I listen to it all day every day and my thoughts generally revolve around collecting more of it, researching it, and talking about it with other like minded nerds.

    Genre fiction (fantasy and science fiction specifically). Movies like Star Wars, television shows like Doctor Who, and books like Harry Potter, all strike me to the core. I can watch/read them over and over again, then talk about the intricacies of them for hours on end. They are the reason I became a writer.

    Couponing. Ever since I started I simply can not understand why anyone no matter their budget would pay full price for an item if a coupon was available. I dedicate about 8 hours a week to couponing. In exchange for that time I usually get about $300-$400 of food every 2 weeks for $60-$75. On top of that I often have stores pay me to leave with my groceries by finding money maker coupons where the store has to give me the item and pay me overage. I love it. It gives our family extra money and we get lots of great stuff.

    It began when I turned 4. I quickly got caught up in it by 5. When I was good enough to represent our city I was involved in this game 4 or 5 days weekly from September through April. I was allowed to attend a school that focused on this during summers from the age of 8 through 16. The tuition was steep; yet I enjoyed every minute of this schooling. I was involved in this while I attended college; however, after college it became a hobby on the side since I was now working for a living.
    I have subsequently moved to a new country, changed careers yet this besides my Better-half and our children has stayed relatively constant. I am now 18 for the third time and I continue this obsession once a week 51 weeks/year.
