What are you passionate about?

It is my belief that having a passion in life makes it much more interesting and enjoyable Anyways I wanted to ask, besides U2, what are you passionate about?

Way too many things, unfortunately.

I love books. New ones, old ones, textbooks, newspapers, scientific journals, you name it, I'll read it. Most of my time online is spent reading.

Music. I'll always listen to something, I find that I need music as background noise, and the bands I really love, I love seeing love. What a buzz.

Travelling. This is a big one. I make at least one trip out of the country a year for purely vacation purposes and it's been the best thing I've ever done. I'm considering going back to school in a year and a half and in that case, I'm planning on a world whirlwind in the months before it.

The research I do. It's interesting, it's relevant to my field and to people's lives by extension and there's never quite as good a feeling as getting a positive result. The feeling of new discovery and what one answer allows you to do in the future.

Dogs. Man's best friend, indeed. Endless love for the beasts of all shapes and sizes.

Art and architecture. In architecture, I really like pre-Romanesque Churches, because they are so distinct and many of them show the level of knowledge about celestial bodies and the equinox that you wouldn't expect at that time. Art - I love post-Impressionism, and I love the Renaissance. Oh, and medieval ivory and wood carvings. I'm just crazy about those things and if I were ever really wealthy, I'd surely have a huge collection.

I always loved too many things in life.

Non-music related, my two biggest interests are Great Lakes ships and Barbie dolls.

Too many to list...

Reading - fiction, non-fiction, newspapers, internet, magazines - anything. I'm a total omnivore. I'm also a huge fantasy & sci-fi fan.

Terry Pratchett's Discworld - this really deserves its separate mention because I'm so obsessed with his books.

Music - love listening to it, reading about it, discussing it, seeing bands live.


Travel - I always try and get out overseas at least once a year. My next wish-list destinations are Europe and South America. I always like to travel around where I live, too.

Old computer games - my taste in games stopped evolving at around 1996, but I still love playing all those adventure/RPG golden oldies.

Cats - domestic cats, wild cats, big, small. I'm a 100% cat person and quite obsessed with them,

Belly dancing - I've only started 9 months ago but I'm absolutely loving it. It makes you feel so feminine and it also made me feel so much more comfortable and confident in my body.

Art - especially French Impressionists, although I'm interested in just about everything except perhaps some 20th century art that I simply don't get.
