    Writing <cough> I don't know really, it's cathartic. Plus I like the idea that what I write might actually help someone.

    Playing the Guitar is my favorite hobby.  Why? Because it is the ultimate escape/stress reliever.  Another great thing about the guitar is it never talks back to me either!

    My favorite hobby is reading and my favorite authors are James Patterson and Stephen King. I believe that when reading your mind makes you think that you are the characters of the book and you play them in your imagination.

    I love listening to music while coloring, especially those HUGE posters you can get at Michael's. People tell me I'm good at making everything stand out and pop. Actually, I think I just like making things in general. Anything that allows my imagination to take control. I get REALLY into it, which lets my mind rest on the realities of life and puts me in a great mood afterwards.

    I also love exercise, reading, puzzles, writing, video games, and watching/making/analyzing movies (cinema major). No worries though, I know when to shut up (usually) when watching movies with non-cinema majors.

    I definitely gravitate toward hobbies that require creativity.  Honestly, my attention span is so short that my passions change rather often.  Playing music has pretty much been a constant in my life.  Coming up with new arts and craft ideas is always fun for me.  In the last few months, I have been doing a lot of baking and trying my hand at cake and cookie decorating.  I have even tried my hand at archery.  Target shooting is definitely good for stress.  So, it is hard to pick a favorite, but whatever I can do that clears my mind, helps me to relax and puts a smile on my face is my favorite activity in that moment.

    My favorite hobby is playing Old Timers (no checking) ice hockey. Primarily because it significantly associates with my days of youth, it is vigorous exercise that I can enjoy, it is good for the intellect (moving fast and making relatively quick decisions) according to Dr. John Medina's NY Best Seller, titled Brain Rules, and it is a sport that you can continue to play because of the lack of viscosity relative to playing tennis or basketball on pavement or skiing on significant knee-impacting mogul snow skiing...

    I work as a German and English teacher in Russia and I'm quite fond of video games.
    I collect them (in Steam), chat with publishers and developers and write reviews on the games.
    I also started to write my own German coursebook when I have some free time, as I think, that no book fully covers everything I need for teaching and I have to look up much information in the internet or other sources. So, if you want something done well, do it yourself smile
