My hobbies are dirt bikes, fishing, 4 wheelers, go karts, airsoft, boating, and so on. I'm really interested in 2 stroke dirt bike engines and powerful electric motors. Anyways, I'd like to hear what yours are.

I do some programming in my spare time. I also do some running and races. Play video games. Enjoy coffee and restaurants, and occasionally hit wineries. Traveling is an infrequent thing that I'm trying to do more of.

What languages do you like to code in?

Since the start of the year I have been dabbling in JavaScript, utilizing node.js and the discord.js API (as well as mongodb, phantomjs and selenium webdriver).

Prior to that I was doing a lot of C# in Unity.

Very nice. I started learning on Java last year, but I definitely enjoy JavaScript more. While coding is a very small part of my major, it's definitely one of my favorite parts.

I don't think I could do it professionally, but I'm excited to keep learning. =)

I work on, build, and race cars as my primary hobby outside of computers.

I also play several instruments, namely guitar.

I also used to be a sponsored (local skate shop) skateboarder back in HS and early college, but i stopped doing that so much and now i'm just the "older guy" at my local skate park when i make it out once a month or so.

Mainly guitars. Unfortunately that hobby is way more expensive than computers ever will be. I've started watching more reviews and videos over the past year and that's opened up a whole new world of fancy and boutique pedals, amps, and guitars.

I also really enjoy shooting, building and working on guns, fishing, going to the gym, swimming, running, MMA, and random debauchery with my bros.

Tell me about it...lol

I'm getting into different types of tube amps and pedals (most recent purchase a Hughes and Kettner...eyeing some Strymon pedals as well), so the cost of everything I've been getting into has shot up.

New PRS is still on the horizon though ;-)

Gaming, writing, fashion. Computer hardware and clothes are enough to make any man broke. Good thing I'm not into cars or I would have to forgo basically every hobby I have just to not buy stupid crap I don't need.

Between games and computer hardware alone I'm not exactly okay with how much I've spent. Add in wardrobe and I become upset with myself.

Hobbies are expensive. It's the curse of life.

What are you into writing?

  • 33 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah... they are. You would be surprised how much a shirt can cost though lol.

I like to write shorter fiction stories. I lack the attention span to go with anything longer than a novelette... or finish most of what I write. The one that got the most attention from me so far is a short story inspired by Dagon by Lovecraft and Silent Hill in general. It is also the first one I wrote. I only just started recently after a friend suggested I write after I spent a few weeks designing a DnD campaign since I enjoyed it so much.

Nice man! I wrote a bit in high school and loved it. I also lacked the attention span to write more than. Just a short story. I think the longest story I wrote was about 30 pages. I haven't written anything in probably four years, though. =(

  • 33 months ago

That's still longer than my first story ha ha. Although its purpose was supposed to be short and to the point, similar to Dagon although mine is a bit longer. I tried doing National Novel Writing Month but I couldn't sit down and write for more than an hour at a time and I needed around 2 or 3 to get the word count I needed per day to write a novel in a month. I also was a bit dissatisfied because I needed to fluff out the writing to absurd degrees just to meet the word count and I hated how it was turning out.

I like to fish, but haven't had time lately, and I fish from a kayak in salt. Also like playing golf - and sometimes cook when I have time - working 40hrs and taking care of other life things - wife ends up cooking most times. Also doing some software projects.

I play golf, starting to get back into it after not playing for 2 years. I used to be a low single digit handicap, so I'd like to get back to at least that by the end of summer.

Interesting concept. What it there was a machine to oxygenate the blood - like an IV device - would the body still be compelled to breath?
