Hobbies Outside of Halo

What does everyone do with their free-time (if you have free-tme) outside of playing Halo? I'm in my school band - 1st Trombone - and I've taken up piano/keyboard as well. I usually am doing classwork, but I like to go play on my Wii and 360. I also prefer to juggle in my spare time, and most likely I'll just be on my cousch surfing on the computer. So what does every else do with their time? Anything?

I play bass and write guitar in a band called Mousetache Riders

I tool with a lot of electronic and pneumatic work.

I make other props (star wars, lotr, harry potter, transformers, gijoe, and warhammr, etc. etc.)

I've written 3 books, a graphic novel, and several cartoon strips.

I do a lot of film and photography work. My photography work is mostly centered around diorama building and stop motion animation. I also use it to do 3d storyboarding. My film work is a bit more eclectic. I've made short films, documentaries and tv shows. I work off of 2 canon xha1s. Years before I was using the gl2.

I like to dabble in home repair, I've redone 4 rooms in my house, one of which was a bathroom with a new shower.
I've also done some landscaping outside, which included leveling out some land onthe corner of my lot and making a huge patio/garden retreat. Great for going out and having a beer on.

I'm trying to get into cars too, never really done too much. The biggest thing I've done is help a friend do a transmission swap. This might be something I'd like to go back to school for eventually when the time is right.
If I did i'd like to be Honda or Toyota certified.

If it involves tinkering I probably like it. I'm up for most thing.

aside from cars, im heavily into underground hip-hop. im talking about the real stuff, the 4 elements (rhymin, scratchin, breakin, and sprayin). the stuff you dont see on TV. a bunch of my friends are DJs, my best friend Billy (in the pictures of me wearing Mjolnir) is the reigning freestyle rap champion in New Orleans. I break dance and spray graff (not much illegally anymore, im getting too old for all of that )

Billy and I rhymin at a local bar


i painted this at Bonnaroo 2007. showing my love for my city.

ive got a bit of a tarzan syndrome as well. every year i "get lost" in the wilderness and spend a weekend living off of the land. ive swam a mile to Deer Island off the coast of mississippi for 4 summers, and spent 2-4 days on it. ive also hiked a lot of strange places in the southern US, as well as jumped off of nearly every bridge in my area.

here i am on Deer Island, after the swim. 3 friends made the trip with me, and we only brought what we could put in small backpacks for the swim.

ive got many more things i could say, but ill leave it at this.

I like to do some 3d Modeling every other day, have some random projects that I work on and off on. Also like to just bike around the roads, going nowhere is particular, just going wherever my bike leads me :p. Like to play Wii and am starting to work out, gotta loose a bit of weight :p. Also, love taking things apart and learning how they tick, have fixed my laptop (hardware issue), modded my xbox (chipped, leds, LCD screen built in), and built my own circut for shooting pistols fairly fast in Halo 2 :p (yeah yeah I know) .

Always like to hang out with friends and have LAN partys every other weekend too.

My main hobby is my cars. I have an 06 Mitsubishi Evo MR and a 65 Rambler that take up alot of my time. I am big into r/c cars also. I just got an HPI baja and it's awesome. I'm a full time college student and work part time, so my schedule tends to be pretty busy.

Besides working. I'm my whole family's IT Help Desk/Workstation Support tech on-call 24/7. Restoring my 68 custom coupe. Driving my 00 GT fast? Ah yes, short films and video editing. Am I forgetting something?......Ah yes, my fiance, Emily. Helping her through LPN school and with her photography. What doesn't suck about getting into a $20 per ticket airshow for free (did I mention it included hanger access?)
