Quite a few people like cooking! I only know one other person that actually enjoys that in real life, weird. See, I knew you guys were interested in other things besides drawing all day, you don't spend you whole lives cooped up indoors with naught but an easel. Though now I want to go learn some of the things listed rather than go back to drawing at the studio, oops.

Drawing and painting do take up most of my time. I'm currently trying to finish up school. But during my free time, I lift weights and play my guitar. I used to take martial arts but it ended up being too expensive and time-consuming.
I'm probably almost as passionate about video games as I am about art - which totally sucks because I can end up spending alot of time on one and falling behind on the other... their just isn't enough time in the day!
I'm also really into my US Dramas like Fringe, Breaking Bad, Desperate Housewives, LOST etc (One day I'll live in America and not need to go out of my way to find good TV! )
Having interests like this make you a bit of a house goblin
I write lots of music. I also really like film, and video games of course.
recently all kinds of booze heavy parties and meets at homes and pubs/restaurants etc. have become rather frequent and hangovers definitely waste time, trying to relearn how to say no to vodka. Play a bit of video games and watch movies/series (episodically), read some books, waste time online, try to spend quality time with family and boyfriend, bingesew whenever I decide I have nothing cool to wear, bake cakes and muffins, when season permits spend as much time outside as possible.
draw draw draw study art... oh not art related. all right. well I go to high school, I play trumpet in jazz band, I play bagpipes, I sing in choir at church, I'm a student leader at youth group, I volounteer for teaching sunday school, I lift weights, cross country run, water ski, snowboard, wakeboard, kneeboard, I hang out with friends once in a while other than at school... yep that's about it.
Cry because of my own ineptitude.
Guitar, Piano, Longboarding, Photography, and watch movies. I'm also designing a nerdy table top game at the moment. ...trying to anyway.
@Jie Kageshinzo Thank you for your service. We all look up to you.
And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.
mm..free time , i own a small shop not art related, open from 5 to 10pm, at night i would watch movies or tv series, sleep .., wake up at 6, draw ,exercise, sketching, paint , browsing CA, to 4pm, take a bath ,and...all over again.
damn..now that i've wrote them down i feel useless
Videogames are a thing to be carefull with. They suck up your time, make you un-social,etc.
I try to stay away from them.
I go to John Molson School of Business, about the finish a degree in marketing. I do all things students do I guess. Travel, party, concerts, socialising, museums, shows, etc
Playing video games gets me talking and co-operating with people of all ages and nationalities on a regular basis. Just because people aren't face to face, doesn't mean they aren't socialising, otherwise you could say phone calls are anti-social
The phone comment is a strong point.
I originally warned against video games as stemming from my own experience. As a teenager I was really into them, which resulted or cultivated my awkwardness in social situations. I did not meet new people and was afraid of a room full of them. Girls were out of the question, I was far too gone to talk to them effectively.
When I decided at the end of highschool to work on myself, I focused on bettering my social skills. It became apparent to me that it can't be done over the computer so I dropped video games.
After this all my "socializing" dreams came true and I know now that I will never, ever be stuck in an awkward and lonely situation. Such assurance feels great, and as I hang out with people I learn and develop a lot more then by playing games.
It is important to remember though that people are different and some people have more addictive personalities then others. Mine was such that gaming had a detrimental effect. In someone elses case it has a positive one. I was just speaking in my personal terms.
I still play some cod and recently battlefield bad company 2 though.
But that's just my experience.

You could say videogames are a social experience but is under a narrow context, its still not a total substitute for all social interaction
As is see it, its like being able to solve a physics problem but only if it is under a frame where particular conditions apply and you can repeat a formula.
If one spends too much time within that framework the moment your out of it, you might feel a bit lost.
I Love videogames as anyone here might, i too went into matrix mode on occasions, just saying, good things still need to be put into balance.
I like too many things that i have time for...
Lifting weights/fitness, art, and school are my three main things. I also love music but am simply lacking the time to write anything as of late.

As a 3D animator, when I'm not doing my art, I am rendering...
