    I teach at a university and my wife owns several restaurants. When we have some free time we travel, spend a lot of time bicycling and hiking, and go see a lot of movies and concerts.

    Hobbies? what are those? lol

    2 jobs have kept me busy since August last year, but had to drop one so have some more time. Maybe I can finally pick up my hobbies again.

    Normally: soccer (playing [not so much since I had an issue with my knees, but that was resolved last year]/ watching)/movies (home or theater)/ series (always home)/ reading/ walking/ youtube (yikes, but really helps when you need to watch sth entertaining, but short ha!) and driving (only listing this because I suck at parking backwards so actively trying to change that lol)

    Wonder if working could be a hobby :D wanted to pick up karate or teakwondo. Have some time now so should look into it again.

    The only constant things since late last year have been work/music/reading and youtube lol

    What an amazing bunch of ppl!
    Personally, I'm a critical care nurse with a handful of specialities.
    I enjoy rock climbing, scuba diving, flying light sports aircraft, jumping out of aircraft, taking the Jeep out into some serious mud, keeping fit.
    I'm also in an environmental group, we go on outing in the bush and check the health of the environment, animals, trees etc.. I used to be a drover in the desert country, so my bushcraft comes in handy out there
    And I enjoy chatting in the forums and nice shiny new phones 🙃

    If I am not working or on a Mobile Nations website, I generally hang out with friends, listen to music, watch sports and play video games. I have a passion for cars and love to go for spirited drives.

    I read. A lot. I love sci-fi and fantasy books. I play a lot of video games as well. I'm really loving my NES Classic and PS4 right now. I'm an amateur astronomer and I love going out stargazing at night with my telescope.
    When you said astronomy, that got my attention

    I've been interested in astronomy but because of the country I live in, it's hard to get both information and equipment to try out anything

    I hope that maybe we can start a conversation on this?

    I've been interested in photography - the act of taking photos and not really the art of editing and bringing out details - I'm that kind of guy that just takes a photo though I'm now trying to get into better photography through taking time to create and compose shots. currently I have a Nikon D5300 while before that I had a Lumia 1020

    I'm also an avid reader whenever I can get my hands on a book - science fiction, fantasy, mystery - I probably have read over 2000 books since the year 2000

    I do watch a few series when I get time - expanse is my current favourite as well as Supernatural, Flash, Arrow, Daredevil, Sherlock etc

    I watch movies as well, again when I have time

    Most of all, I try to meet up with friends and spend time with them since that is the one thing I truly enjoy doing but can't get enough of. Most of my friends are from Mombasa city which is 500km away from my current city, Nairobi - so that makes it difficult.

    Good Morning everyone :)

    I'm currently a computer science student in 3rd year. So that takes up most of my time. When i get home, i always take an hour or two to browse mobile nations and get caught up with anything I've missed during the day. There is always conversation happing so i have to get involved :)

    Over the weekend, I try to play some golf. The sunshine and fresh air is nice and relaxing, except when i miss an important putt then the inner hulk comes out for a couple seconds haha. Plus i get to meet new people each week which is really nice If I'm not up for golf then a short run or 30 minute cycle does the trick for me.

    Other than that, i like watching various youtube channels like Mr Mobile or series on Netflix. So yeah thats about it. If you have any question I'm all ears and will answer as soon as possible :)

    Currently on my final semester in 2nd Year Mechanical Engineering. The semester just started, so I'm finally getting busy again (was on holiday for the past 3 months), which explains why I've recently started disappearing from this forums. I do check it out every now and then, but couldn't find the time to reply.

    Anyways, aside from studying, I watch movies and write reviews on my Facebook (too lazy to set up an account on review sites or start my own webpage), play video games on my laptop (both online and single-player), as well as keeping up on the latest technology and gadgets. I also browse my social media to keep myself up to date with my friends who are studying elsewhere, as well as browsing Reddit to learn about life in general (apparently AskReddit is the best place to learn about other people's perspective).

    So, yeah. Cheers, and have a good day!

    I found a new hobby this winter - shovelling snow!!! Been a particularly harsh one this year with it seemingly snowing every 2-3 days, definitely looking forward to spring arriving.

    My main passion has always been mechanics so it was only fitting when the opportunity arrived for a HD Mech apprenticeship, that was 37 years ago and still residing with same company where it all started, an underground lead/zinc mine. That same mechanical passion also lead to our love for NASCAR and a several year stint wrenching on Stock Cars - Paved oval track racing... You guessed it, my favourite driver was Dale Earnhardt Sr. and now Dale Jr - #88 all the way

    Was introduced to the computer world in 1987, soon we found ourselves obsessed trying to keep pace with the technology. That obsession then migrated to digital cameras, video cameras, smart phones and so on. What ever piece of technology we choose it's a guarantee we'll have a back up, then a back up for the back up, and maybe another back up. Yep no question, we're obsessed LOL.

    So when all's said and done it's (no particular order)... Computers, photos, video, NASCAR, NHL Hockey, news, mechanics (HD/automotive).

    Industrial electrician by trade, try to stick with control work, PLC's, machine integration and such, but also have to do the high power stuff to pay the bills. Some of this knowledge crosses over, to hardware anyway.
    Ride motorcycles, read, canoe, travel and spend way too much time on CrackBerry.
    Also herd cats, seriously. We have 5, (yes, I know, one should never have more cats than one has elbows) do some volunteer work at a local animal shelter, mostly cats.

    I've always been a reader. I read a lot and read anything available. Now with the internet, I am a bit more selective and often go for stories which are light, entertaining, things that is not too heavy for the brain after work.
    For the last two years, I got this thing for certain old mobile phone models. So I've been spending time looking for addition into my collection, maintaining the batteries and making sure the phones are in good shape (But more often than not, I've added scratches to the phones when trying to keep them clean).

    Awesome thread, Robert!

    I suppose I'm primarily a computer geek. When I was in my teens and 20s, I was building my own PC towers and messing with different linux distros. These days, I do less of that, but when I have time, I still tinker with a few raspberry pis, or programming little 8bit microcontrollers. I recently finished building a new router using pfSense. The last few weeks, I've been playing an old text based BBS game called TeleArena with my sister.

    I am also into music. I play keyboard and run sound for a band. We play most weekends at bars or nightclubs in the area. My wife and I also try to catch bands that we like when they come into the area.

    I also like to spend time outdoors. My wife and I hike, mountain bike and Geocache.

    Hobbies seem to come and go with me. I've been severely and quite costly into Mountain Biking and Kayaking in the past. It takes a lot of time though and geographic logistics can be a bear at times... I don't really do either any more. Age might be a factor there, LOL.

    I really love taking and tweaking photos, so my phone and PC life definitely fit in there big time.

    Music, movies, books more so than games. Although I do have a pretty severe Hill Climb Racing habit.

    My enduring passion is for food. I love cooking. I've created a few recipes that are very well received and I think I have a penchant for recreating a dish that I've sampled somewhere (with my own twist, of course). Dining out is nice, but I really like making things from scratch and when I have the time I can go all out and create a sumptuous meal with excellent timing so everything finishes at once.

    My Curried Chicken Salad is outstanding and I've been accused of having it catered in.

    Chicken Burrito with Pineapple-Mango Salsa anyone?

    Ever heard of Spaghetti Pizza?

    I consider it a personal triumph that I have recreated and mastered Dry Crispy Shredded Beef...

    Bon Appétit.

    Other than studying hard in the school and preparing myself for college, there's so many (maybe even too much) stuff I'm involved in.

    I'm a fitness addict, a complete junkie to be honest. I usually work out 4-5 days a week and always watch what's on my plate and try not to eat that sweet sweet sugar :D. Other than going to the gym I also cycle a lot. As a matter fact, during the summer, the bike is my actual mean of transportation from my home to the gym.

    I write for this kind of small tech site. I really could not enjoy it more than I already do. I've always loved tech, loved learning about tech and I was also engaged in writing since I was a kid, so I guess this is pretty much a perfect match for me.

    Other than those two, I also write poems. Yeah, some of you could find it boring but I enjoy it. As I said, from my early ages I showed talent for writing, so, it's kind of natural that I'm at least a bit occupied by it. Heck I've even been writing a book when I was 10 or so. I never finished it of course and it was, now when I look at it from this poing, really poor quality. But I was 10, don't forget that xd.

    Are we counting watching sports as a hobby? Cause I'm all into sports. Especially football and handball. Though I only pay attention to national teams in handball. But football. Yeah, I love it all.

    What else. I was supposed to be on a debate competition today and was preparing for it for the past 10 or some days. But it got canceled which is a real bummer.

    I guess that's pretty much it.

    Also enjoy cycling, though my endurance is not that great. Had a full ACL recon in 2015 and have been slowly working my way back from that.

    Work, home, family, friends, reading (both academic and non-academic), music, walks. I am completely a non-tech person and started visiting websites to look for solutions to problems I had on our PC, laptop and phones.This happened after my son (he was the one who would handle the problems) joined University at the other end of the country. This is how I discovered the WC Forums and later the AC Forums and gradually became a member after posting a guest question.
    I do enjoy visiting the forums though I am not able to spend much time on it

    Wow! This is a very good topic to read and know a bit more about our users. Great idea :)

    Well, apparently there doesn't seem to be many folks on here besides me, who spent most of their time on cars. They are my number one passion, tech follows closely on second place. I really like sport cars, and am currently in the search for something more suitable to use on a track :) Also, I trade with car parts a lot. Buy wrecked, take apart, sell the good bits :D Currently I am getting a proper garage of my own, with all the lifts, tools and other expensive tools :D Great fun, much wow ;)

    In the meantime, until the business is fully functional and profitable, I will continue to work for the UN, unless...you know...Trump hah :D

    PS: Microsoft all the way, I could literately be a MS Ambassador, converted many people so far. And you have to keep in mind that here in EU, they do even less promoting of their products, and we don't even have a MS Store in my country :/

    Love my SP4 :)

    Cheers ^^

    Ok, working with computers and been doing that for 20 plus years, I confess that this also is one of my hobbies. :-)

    I also like the outdoors, running, hiking, music, classic point and click adventure games, classic cars and recently vintage record players.

    But having four children limits my free time a bit, but I also love spending time with my famlily and friends.

    So a busy life and I like it. :-)
