May 26, 2014: Outside of makeup, what are your hobbies?

Recommended Posts

For me, many different music-related things occupy much of my time.  I just finished my master's thesis in musicology, and hope to get some of my research published (I have some rather obscure musical interests hah).  Also, I perform with my band, and incorporate my interest in makeup to create various stage looks of all sorts.  I love performing and I'm usually involved in putting on some sort of charitable concert or event (I also promote them, too).  When I'm not performing, I do some soundtrack work for the odd independent documentary or promo video too, which is a lot of fun.

 

I recently took up painting too, though I'm quite a novice! hah  I enjoy it though, and really wish that I took art back in high school, but as I tell my older music students, better late than never, right? :)

This is a great thread!  Makes for an interesting but quick read (much easier than going through profiles).  So neat to see so many people into gaming on here :-)

 

Gaming is definitely a big thing for me, but I just don't have the time to do it nearly as much anymore.  I enjoy PC gaming (console to a point), with my favorites genres being either space or fantasy turn-based RPG's.  I like the strategy involved :-)  I *do* get to play multiplayer games a bit more as my daughter (and now my son) are into Minecraft.  Really cool game.

 

I also love corresponding with people in general, even if they aren't involved in any of my direct hobbies.  I'm always told that I never meet a stranger, and I guess I never do.  I love to talk!  Internet gaming (mainly Utopia) actually began my love of communicating with different people in different parts of thew world, and it's a great hobby to have.  It kind-of fits in with all of my other hobbies.  To sum up a short list...

 

--Being a parent!... Does that even count as a hobby???  Being a spouse is pretty cool, too, when I'm not in trouble...

--Gaming

--Meeting new people from all over the world

--Science and math (I've always been a big space nut since I was a kid.  I enjoy stargazing and astrophotography)

--I saw a lot of Kindle lovers.  I completely agree!  I get hooked on a series and have to have the next book *right now*

--I love brewing beer.  I have a group of friends that meet and brew fairly often, and we're usually drink the last batch while we work :-)

--It doesn't go well with the previous hobby, but going fast :-)  Driving fast cars, snow skiing, water skiing, etc.

--One of my children is autistic, so research, development, interaction, methodologies, life stories & experiences are always something I always read. 

 

That kind-of takes up the bulk of my time!!!   I'm someone who's kind-of up for just about anything. 

 

There is so much talent on here, but I have to say that I'm envious of those with baking skills.  Pretty amazing stuff!

My hobbies aren't expactly the 'coolest' haha, but I play the trumpet, write music and teach children to play the trumpet.

 

I also like swimming and tennis :) I'm not exactly the fittest though!

With my hubby we make red & white wine from the grapes we grow; make soft cheeses, harvest artemisia annua to freeze and use to make tea; knit for all the family and I love making patchwork quilts. Made one for my daughter and one for my DIL - took me a whole year because they wanted kingsize.

I like to play nintendo switch, drink wine and pretend to describe their notes, explore old parts of NYC, and think of all the wonderful places I could go to. 

 

I'm a fake traveler - I love spending afternoons thinking of itineraries of places I've never been, looking up relais & chateaus and the sights near by. It's like window shopping except with travel.

I love to bake and try new dishes. I think it is important to open yourself up to new things so I try all different kinds of foods. I like to work out and enjoy reading. When I am not doing that I actually really enjoy just finding a new program on television and getting wrapped up in the story.

That is so cool! Partaking in the consumption of wine and cheese are my hobbies! ;)

I love being outside, hiking, biking, and going to the beach. I also love lifting weights, reading, and writing. I love food! I play soccer and watch early seasons of The Office if all else fails.

    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books.
