Hobbies Other Than Gaming

Photography: I have a few cameras and I like taking pictures of landscapes and cars (just not people).
Music: I've played guitar for about 15 years. I also go to concerts all the time. Last year I saw easily over 20 artists perform live.
LEGO: I haven't played with LEGOs since I was a kid (it's been 10 years!), but I'm gearing up for an epic city build sometime in the next few years.
I also partifipate in spontaneous events (flash mobs sort of), like the "Frozen Grand Central" video you've probably seen on YouTube where people froze still for 5 minutes in a train station. We have a local group in Boston that does that sort of stuff.
Also recently I've been knocking off some once in a lifetime / bucket list type stuff. Within the past couple months I've piloted a helicopter and raced a Lamborghini in autocross. In September I'm racing in a NASCAR!

So now I just go to the range and shoot my guns as a hobbie. I guess reading is another hobby.

I'd like to write a book but whenever I start I think "I can't write a story." I'm good with generalities but specifics are hard for me. I'd also like to start doing some robotics but that takes a bit of money, especially if you aren't all that good at it.

I have also started up parkour/free running, and I have to say, even though it is hard work, it is VERY fun.

I've also got an interest in photography. I'm still relatively new, but I've taken control of my mom's old lenses from the 1980s, which still work on a modern day DSLR. I take pictures every now and then.
Piano is another one of my interests. I just finished my Grade 8 piano exam at the Royal Conservatory of Music, and passed with first class honours, which is a great achievement. I'm continuing onto Grade 9 next year and will be doing some composition as well, which I'm really looking forward to.

One of my hobbies that I really enjoy is wine and mead making. Most of the wine I make is from kits, but the only thing really that is different is that someone else already pressed the grapes. Other than that, it's all the same as if I grew or bought the grapes, pressed them, and made the wine. But I do make many "country wines" also. These are made form fruit other than grapes. A couple that I really like are strawberry wine and blackberry port-style wine. And mead is made from honey instead of fruit. And it's much like grapes - many different varieties of honey, and each brings different features to the wine than other varieties do.
Read my blog for the latest on what's on my mind.
And feel free to PM me with any issues you have, or just to say "Hi!".

Sleep will ease you mind
With the dawn you will find
Problems re-aligned a different
Way than yesterday

I used to play ultimate frisbee. Really hardcore. Competative, at international level. I hate to admit it, but I'm too old now. Can't layout hard anymore.
I love to cook. But everybody needs to prepare their food. Sort of a half-hobby I'd say.
Art. Yes. I do. A lot. Actually I believe in art. Anything you do is art, if you decide it is. Yes, I firmly believe in art. It makes this world a better place.
Music production. I still have to call this a hobby, but I did this as a hobby for like 30 years, and I decided I'll try to take it to a more pro level. NOW.
