I figured there's no need to make a specific thread for all of your hobbies, so share with everyone!

What do you like to do, what do you fancy?

Personally, I do all that normal stuff. Video games, television and the like, but I have some weirder ones, I'll go over them below.

My biggest hobby, is collecting masks. I have twenty or thirty of them. Most are up on my wall but there's a few that I don't have up yet.

I'm also a huge practitioner of Balisong knives. Not for defensive or harmful purposes, but the art and technique is fun to learn.

lastly, my oddest hobby is lockpicking. It's something that tickles my brain, picking a hard lock or a troublesome pin.

I love to collect dragon statues and/or figurines. I only have a few now [due to my mother's clumsiness ._.] but I just absolutely love them.
Oh I also collect Pokemon plushes. But the dragons are cooler and slightly more expensive.

I like to think a hobby of mine is collecting classic mickey mouse stuff. Clothing, watches, plushes, I even made a blanket.

One of mine that broke [in a record of 2 days!] was crystal. I never cried so much [or at all] over a dragon. >_o That's why they're all out of reach.

I'm a stargazer, I love me some astronomy. I also collect tarot cards, although I don't believe any of that fortune telling crap - I just like the art.

I'd like to start collecting weird rocks/gemstones, but my rooms already a mess and my family would throw a fit. Same goes for building robots. >.<

I also do the usual nerd things, like messing around with computers and gaming.

Drawing for sure, and playing video games. I also enjoy reading science articles and articles/videos of paranormal phenomenon (it's a fascination of mine).

Oh cool! :D Another one who does that on a daily basis.

Overall, I'd say playing video games (somewhat to my gf's chagrin, who's an athlete), drawing, being with my pets [when she's nice], writing and surprisingly, driving on the highway for loooong-ass trips.

Ah in my spare time I make charms and little trinkets for money. Without a job right now I need to get back into making them. Plus I enjoy taking commissions.

Other than that I spend most of my time playing videogames or working on cosplay. Though without a steady income I'm not working on much right now. So it's persona 3 all day err day.

Drawing, gaming, swimming... Hell, does sleeping count as a hobby? If it does then it's one of my top ones. Drawing will always be on top though, as it's been an outlet for me for a long time. I also enjoy crocheting scarves, as designing and creating them is pretty fun to do. I've got a ton of yarn and a large amount of crochet needles lying around.

Playing videogames (older ones are more fun), drawing, wheel-throwing, sculpting, painting, watching tattoo videos, watching/looking at piercings being done, pokeymans, glass bottles or really anything made of glass. I can't really sculpt or throw anymore because, well, I have no supplies and won't for a while (for throwing at least, wheels and kilns are expensive) but I'm looking forward to being able to maybe in school or something. Been painting more often and working with more traditional media overall, which is a nice change from digital. If I can ever find some nice sped up tattoo videos I'll park my ass in front of my computer for like hours, same with decent piercing videos. I adore glass, especially bottles and glasses and figurines, etc. I still have a bunch of Pokémon cards, little figurines from the 90's, erasers, games, those Pokéballs that had the gold-plated cards, you name it. I MUST HAVE MORE. D:

In terms of hobbies, I would say I do little things here and there. I write, bake, travel, bike, and other outdoor things. It's a collection more than anything else.

Video games, drawing, whistling and/or trying to play different instruments, reading.

Hmm.. Lets see
Archery, Fencing, Insect Collecting and Pinning, Biking, Hiking, RC airplanes, Console gaming, PC Gaming, Woodworking, Leathercrafting, Film making, Digital music composition and I consider this a hobby but running a small chatroom too.

I don't have time to be active with all of those things but I get around to them when I can, I don't like to just sit around doing nothing so I at least try to find something to do.

When I am not drawing or painting I am writing. Role Playing used to be a big time sucking hobby of mine. When I wasn't writing for myself I was playing with people in some grand sci-fi or fantastical adventure. I don't do that much anymore because of the time it takes. I was in high school then and am graduated from college now, and now there are bills to pay. A lot of time now goes into commissions and polishing my portfolio.

I have started getting into table top which has been a hilarious and rewarding experiences so far. Still learning though since I jumped right into GMing. Fun stuff.

I used to own three horses too. A quarterhorse, a quarterhorse/mutt, and my personal baby an arabian. I did a lot of English style training for a while and ended up getting a few ribbons in dressage which was a fun experience. Recently I've had the itch to own a horse again. I do miss them.

Used to be involved in other sports as well but it's been a while. Curse my fat head that prefers cerebral pursues!

I am a big science geek. Does watching TED videos count as a hobby? How about brushing up on astronomy? Or any other science for that matter. Its great for inspiration in world creation or even design.
Oh I also study story theory and am a small time film buff/snob. I also devour books whole so keep them at arms length or your precious reading material and fingers may be gone.

I have several other smaller hobbies but there is much much more I'd like to do.

I used to collect comic/art books and mid-priced anime and video game collectibles, but I eventually ran out of room and disposable income. Gotta love paying on student loans! I also dabbled in music making a bit. I took violin and piano lessons in school, but mainly spent my time composing and sequencing midis.

Writing/illustrating webcomics is the only hobby I practice with any regularity. I also write fanfiction when the mood hits me (mainly for DBZ).

That's neat to me since I have no musical talent whatsoever. I leave that to my younger siblings.
I do have a secret desire to know how to play the violin or chello but I don't see it happening.

Dancing, gaming, exercising, and hanging out really. Dancing is the most favorite thing I love to do, it goes well with the fact that I love music.

Computer programming (mostly for web, but sometimes in non-web languages, my favorite language is Python), playing the cello, photography.

I do other stuff too, but that's what takes up most of my time.

Recently, I've been doing a lot of bicycling. I also spend a lot of time at car and motorcycle shows, car photography is a passion of mine.

My main thing is swing dancing, which I do at least once a week at the local ballroom.

I think maybe my most odd hobby is mermaiding (though, maybe it isn't odd for a furry) I have a mermaid tail that I go swimming with. :B

Well gee, lets see. Drawing, though that's something I wishfully would like to do as a career. But aside from that, I also do tabletop stuff, used to play in a Pathfinder campaign, also played in a Dark Heresy campaign, I LOVE painting miniatures and would love to be able to model them as well. As far as what table top games I play, I started with Warhammer 40k, played a mixed tactic Space Marine army. Sadly I rarely won a game... Eventually I turned and played Warmachine, I started a Menoth army and eventually bought a Khador army, I also bought a box of the Warmachine board game Grind (ended up with a second copy because the first one was slightly damaged). Warmachine seemed a better game for me, I won more games playing that than when I played 40K. After a while of that I tried Infinity, which was pretty fun, bought myself a starter box for that, but that was about the time my job started and I lost my gaming day. Oh, and Malifaux, that was a very unique and fun tabletop game, used a deck of playing cards instead of dice.

Aside from my tabletop hobby I, like just about everyone else, plays video games, though I do have a love for older stuff, SNES era mostly, I also try to collect those gems when I can. I also collect gundam figures and models, my next target being the 1/144 scale RX-78 Dendrobium (not sure how many of you know your gundam, but google shall enlighten X3)
Had I the money and the space for it, Legos and Slot cars are a couple more hobbies I have/would love to invest time into.

I think that's about all that I can think of right now, though I'm sure there's more XD

I collect and show model horses and rake in considerable cash for doing so.
I also ride and train real horses. I don't compete with them anymore... far too expensive, risky, and opinionated.

Those are the two big ones. I also write and draw :D

I have so many! I guess it all can be summarised into "learning," because that's what I mostly do, really. History, economy, finance, (quantum) physics, chemistry, cryptography, philosophy, anthropology, linguistics, formal logic... I love learning about all of them! I'm doing maths on this one website, and it's pretty awesome, though I mostly do it to make learning programming easier for me. Which is another hobby and my current favourite! I'm taking a free online course called CS50x, which teaches basic computer science and is generally pretty great! I'm also trying to learn Python (I agree with Syfaro; this is favourite programming language so far, hahah), JavaScript/jQuery, HTML and CSS. Then there's learning languages, which has become quite the obsession, really. It started with me wanting to learn Italian and fiddle around a bit with Arabic (such an awesome language, oh man), and currently it's Japanese and Old Norse.
And then there's drawing, of course, which has stuck with me for five years or so; all my other hobbies are relatively recent in comparison.
So yeah!

(quantum) physics
This is amusing to me, having taken QM classes and being in a particle physics class right now. I always found it to be the most interesting part of the physics curriculum, if only because you can draw a lot of strange conclusions from the mathematics if you want to, but it's more or less impossible to know what's actually going on at that level.

Hm... hobbies. Well, writing, drawing, a little bit of archery (that's a recent discovery), reading, video games (NES and SNES, mainly... I'm a child of the 80's and 90's), learning languages, cooking (a very practical hobby, if I do say so myself), and maybe some other things. I used to play the bassoon, contrabassoon, and trombone, but I haven't had much opportunity to do any of that lately, which makes me sad. Some day I want to blow a bunch of money on a crumhorn and learn to play that.

Most of my hobbies tend to be creative in nature! Writing, drawing, making digital art, some simple game mods. Rhythm gaming is also pretty high on the list.

I also get a pretty huge kick out of philosophy and science in general! It has only fueled my undying love for science fiction.

Drawing is my biggest hobby. Musicianship in general is another for me. Then games. Fewer than when I was growing up, but still games. Been playing Stepmania the most as of late, which filled in the gap of Mungyodance because it offers new music. c:

Like a lot of you I'm into the Visual and Musical arts. I like to:

Draw.
Sculpt with super sculpy.
Digital drawing and textures.
Have been teaching myself the electric violin (Used to play cello)
Bone, wood, and stone carving.
Recently copper etching and anything to do with fun chemistry.
Programming and 3D modeling. teaching myself electronics hardware.
I somehow end up doing a lot of math.. So I guess that can go here.


Apart from all that I just like to hang out and ride my bike everywhere if I can.

table top RPGs are something I am getting into recently.
post 2 post RPGs
And recently my bf and I have decided to get back into horseback riding. I do just trail riding he does jumping and dressage. I'd like to get into western pleasure. Just to solidify we are polar opposites as riders XD
We specifically go out and feed and draw ducks and geese XD It's sort of a hobby.
I love fish keeping but I just don't have time anymore. I don't see coral in my future.
Love hiking. Fishing. reading.

What a mix on here. So many interesting hobbies people have :D

Beyond writing and music, I maintain a broadcasting hobby through my weekly podcast Dragon Tongue and a minor interest in cars. I'd like to get back into weight lifting once I'm finally on my own. I did it a lot in high school and, though I'm pretty slim by any measure, I really enjoyed the pure physical struggle of it and I hope to get back into it. Also have a mild temptation to pick up dancing, which could only help me as a musician and future performer.

Drawing obviously. I also enjoy video games (I'm an avid WoW player) and cooking. I cook almost every meal from scratch (including making my own spreads, sauces, salad dressings, etc).
And I collect miniature teddy bears.

I'm going to try not to envy you. It's too bright here to see much of anything at night. Had ISON not disintegrated, I would have struggled to see it here anyway.

My primary hobbies are writing and podcasting. There's also reading, but I don't know that I'd call it a hobby. I'm also fond of researching theology, but I don't think that qualifies as a hobby either.

I'm a musician, although quite lazy at times.
I usually just write half a song, record it, play with harmonies and other instruments and never finish them though :c

I'm learning drums and keys a bit better, but mainly sing and guitar. I also read a little, watch films/tv, play video games.
I play basketball but not in the winter :c
I am just resuming jogging and small exercise plans, oh and doodle little pixel things, which I wish I could do more to improve but I lose heart easily.

Drawing is a given, since I post stuff on the main-site.
I also started learning how to play the acoustic guitar last year, though I'm still quite rubbish at it.

I also enjoy needlepoint, mostly cross-stitching.
Other than that: reading! c:

well drawing is one thing.

I love to sing and I record my singing on occasion but never actually post it heh. I used to be a bookworm but I have lost my touch for reading and I need it back.

I like to design clothing and make cosplays.

On occasion I write poems.

I am just artistic to the core.

Reading, reading, reading. I keep up on politics a lot, and also history as it pertains to that (American labor history is really interesting and it bugs the hell out of me that so much of it has been whitewashed in public education).

Lately I've also taken a keener interest in personal finance, as I'm a bit of a numbers freak, and finance largely is a big optimization problem, which I take some perverse nerdy joy in solving. I read finance-oriented discussions a lot, and absorb and share advice there. This finance thread project thing I'm working on is largely an attempt to bring here what I already do elsewhere.

Aside from that, I still play games when I find time. I love the shit out of The Binding of Isaac, since I can always finish a game within an hour or two and the roguelike factors make it stupidly replayable.

But usually I just wander into the forest and explore
Which is pretty fun

Although I don't get to do it much

My biggest hobby is programming, by far. The main languages I use depending on what I'm doing are C++, PHP, and JavaScript. You can do a bunch of really funky stuff in JavaScript, and I love learning that kind of stuff even if I'll never actually use any of it.

A hobby I'd like to get in to is electronics. Alas, that one requires money, which I don't exactly have a bunch of at the moment.

I collect bottlecaps, Gremlins merch and animal bones. I play games, do photography and sculpt as hobbies as well!
Drawing is a hobby as well as a job for me at this point in time, so it's flopping back and forth between something that's fun and something that just needs to be done!

Besides furry things and just general internetting, my main hobbies are disc golf and billiards. I don't know what it is about them, but I always have fun no matter how good or bad I'm doing. Not really being competitive probably helps. But seriously, any day I'm at a disc golf course or billiard table is a good day!

There is one that I had years ago that I stopped doing, though. I was a pretty hardcore band geek in my high school days and kept playing my french horn through my first couple years in college. But I found that as I started doing more engineering stuff in college I had less time to dedicate to playing, and it became less enjoyable. But I still have my horn, and I might start playing again whenever I'm in the mood.

Most of my hobbies consist of video game in some form or another; speedrunning, mods, self-imposed challenges, heck most of my excersize consists of ddr. Outside of that, going for walks, cleaning, writing and fiddling around in photoshop.

I write. Short stories. Nobody likes them, though.

I draw crappy cartoons. I don't think I'll ever improve no matter how much I draw or how much I need to.

I play piano. Like none other. In that I still suck, because of too small, too slow hands.

I also game, read, watch TV, and waste my life on the Internet.

I collect older LEGO stuff, mostly minifigures from the 80s and 90s. They've just got a cute little style to them I love. I also love to tinker around in various game engines, haven't made any complete games or anything but I've learned a lot about how they work from a technical standpoint. Really fascinating. I also may or may not be addicted to Gmod/SFM videos and Monty Python. :3

I fucking love miniatures. It's part of the reason I started working with sculpey, so I can make my own stuff.


OT: Drawing, writing, video games, photography.

Speaking of the above response, I got into sculpey late last year. I make white sculpts and paint them with acrylics, then seal them with gloss spray.
I have so far made: a little Metroid (http://vaelarsa.deviantart.com/art/Metroid-Pendant-417236701), Kooky (https://www.weasyl.com/submission/306354/kooky-statuette) from the Mario 3 cartoons, a larger Ludwig statue (https://www.weasyl.com/submission/306363/detailed-ludwig-statue), all of the koopalings' shells (https://www.weasyl.com/submission/306691/koopaling-shell-pendants) as a necklace, a parabeetle-spiny (http://31.media.tumblr.com/b552bb98b853ea33fdabb295db12a1a1/tumblr_mxpcevCa2x1qafrs1o1_400.png) crossbreed clip, and a sprite-looking Karkat (who you can see here (http://25.media.tumblr.com/9e69b4d92476912fb09251a0791a6080/tumblr_myiao0uSP71sonvd0o5_1280.png), but I haven't taken any proper pictures of yet).

I also have a ton of Sailor Moon shit, a decent-sized plushy collection (http://25.media.tumblr.com/5e5dd8427e61ec95b205fcb80a3ec771/tumblr_myias33xIG1sonvd0o2_500.png), various Halloween items, various things that say "West Virginia" on them, and a bunch of plastic figures from various games and stuff that I like.
I've also been building up a decent amount of koopalings stuff of late, particularly of Ludwig, because favrit.

I collect books and comics and video-game consoles. Mainly I collect fantasy books (especially if they have LGBTQ characters) and art history, fashion history and books about weapons, armour and buildings from medieval and renaissance Europe, as well as Middle-Eastern and Aisan fashion and history books when I can get at them.

When it comes to comics I mainly collect comics with a fantastical theme or manga with the same criteria. I just happen to love things like Berserk where they mix fantastical elements with functioning armour and weapons (mostly lol).

With consoles and games, me and my husband-to-be have pooled our collected consoles and have since we got together bought several functioning old ones. We do it mostly because we've both been playing and collecting since we were young children.

I also draw comics and illustrations for a living. I have two webcomics running and a third on the way that will be a joint project with a friend of mine. I have published a few comics here in Sweden where I live.

I also love cooking. This is a passion I picked up because I am a very fuzzy eater and have issues with certain types of textures in food, to battle this I have grown very fond of cooking and experimenting with spices and ingredients to find what I can and cannot eat. It makes for a good time in the kitchen.

Anyway, tl:tr; I draw, cook, collect books and comics and game-consoles as hobbies.

* Drawing. Usually humans and non-anthro animals, but sometimes anthros and/or monsters/aliens. Every once in a blue moon, I'll draw NSFW, but that's almost entirely reserved for mostly-humanoid characters, and tends to be on the tamer side of NSFW.
* Watching TV/Movies. Anime, non-anime cartoons (American, sometimes from other countries like Canada or Russia, whatever I can get my hands on), live action (usually crime shows or sci-fi/horror). I like a lot of films, as well, usually in the aforementioned categories, as well as some of the more intelligent action and horror films. Some musicals, too.
* Reading. Comics, manga, sci-fi and fantasy novels. Sometimes biographies, very fond of many of the classics, as well.
* Playing Video Games. Platformers, JRPG's, indie games (roguelikes, survival), FPS'es that don't take themselves seriously, looking to try some Western RPG's (sadly, many are not available on Mac).
* Pathfinder. (A tabletop RPG, like D&D.)
* Learning about science and history.

I collect video games and strategy guides along with trading card games. I've always collected games from when I was little and have a passion for gaming. I collect trading cards because they look cool or I generally enjoy the game. I'm not a very interesting person but at least I do what I love.

Lately, I've been roleplaying a lot; I've got an account over @ tumblr and I play as Danny Phantom. c,:
I want to improve my art skills and very very recently I've been getting into anime. O_o Strange for me.
But I really love the art and appreciate the detail in it as well as the colors. (I'm a color freak pfft)

I draw animals and humans both (and a lot of Danny Phantom stuff). I have galleries almost everywhere and almost every main social media account except for twitter because.. well, it looks boring. :P

I don't understand why people like twitter anyway. It's like tumblr or facebook to me (but I love tumblr the best yes).

Anyone wanna share their art and get feedback? :D
Comment for comment! ♥

I know you're supposed to draw for fun and because you like it, but I've been really kinda heart-ache-y lately because all my stuff gets more faves than it does comments. It'd really REALLY make me happy. I'll always give feedback in return!

My Number one Hobby is art of course :D Drawing all day, all night (I wish!) ^^ And I like Video games from time to time. Mostly RPGs and similar games.
Also, I love the internet. Browsing around, watching videos and stuff. Anything, really! But it keeps me from drawing and I regret that sometimes. I need to get better at that.

Gotta say my passion is SLR cameras and film, but that can be broadened. Just something special about looking through a lens to me.

General hobbies are all over the place, lately I've been investing a lot of time into audio equipment, mostly in my car, but I had a headphone phase too. Audio shit in general is really interesting to me, kinda goes with the film thing I guess.

Also been building computers for 6 years, worked with aviation since I was a toddler, model/RC airplanes, used to airsoft and paintball, videogames bahblah

Well...

I like to play video games. Usually RPGs/JRPGs, but I tend to go through most other genres too.

I listen to music non-stop all day! I actually kind of have a horde of songs on iTunes now: 1596 songs, and all but maybe ten have been bought by me or burned from my dad's CD collection. the genres are kind of anywhere; I don't mind the genre too much as long as i like the music and I feel comfortable letting others listen to it.

I've been going on walks now more than ever. Usually once a week, but I walk for at least two hours usually. Longer if I find something interesting to do like hike up a big hill or something.

I've been taking pictures more and more now. Usually on the aforemented walks or through my trips to visit my mom or dad, which are 3-4 hours away in different directions for them. I've been wanting to see more places though, so I might consider driving off on my own sometime.

I suppose my biggest hobby is gaming. Now that I'm done with school and making a decent wage I'm putting together my next gaming computer and looking forward to getting back in the game(s)! O:

Of course there's also drawing.

I would call running a hobby, but it's a love/hate relationship.

Now that it's summer I'm getting back into bug collecting. Apparently it's a very common hobby in Japan, I've not met anyone where I live that does it that isn't a biologist though. My favorite arthropods by far are spiders. =w=

I like to collect physical copies of music (tapes, records, CDs) and dragon statues. I guess my main hobbies are gaming and playing guitar, I also really really enjoy listening to music. Climbing trees would be more of a hobby if there were even trees where I live, I love climbing trees. Being high up in general, really. I flew in the cockpit of a little plane once (even got to take control for a bit) and I really enjoyed that...
But mostly music, I guess. And Skyrim. :D

Most of my hobbies are pretty relatable, but there is one where I have a hard time trying to find people in real life to talk to about.

I brew tea.

Some of you might be thinking 'well that's a common hobby, you should have lots of people to talk to about it!'

The problem is, most people who are 'into tea' are doing it because it's a new health fad/ hipster fad thing. I hear people talking about Steepster and DAVIDsTEA all the time and it honestly grinds my gears quite a bit.

I don't have anyone to talk to who doesn't do the whole 'flavoured tea' thing. I don't want to talk about 'cupcake' flavoured tea. I want to talk about high mountain oolongs, antlers and tie guan yin. :|
