Besides RP, what's everyone do for fun?

One of my other hobbies is running agility with my pup. We just started competing this year and he's doing so good and we're both having so much fun!

I gotta brag a little... We went to a trial yesterday, entered into 5 classes, and came away with 4 Qualifying runs, 3 of which were 1st place in our category! I'm not the best photographer ever... but here are our spoils. Watch out, agility world! This scruffy mutt is coming for ya! ;)

Let's hear about your hobbies and/or victories!
When 2020 rolls around I'm going to be auditioning for bands again. I'm a bartender now. But I want to be a professional bass player in a rock and roll band. I write songs and poems. I collect string bikini swimsuits. Basses and amps. I also got a German shepherd named duke.

The band sounds like a lot of fun! I often wish I had musical talent, even took a couple years worth of piano lessons, but I could never get 'over the hump' where it felt remotely fun and natural. Always a struggle. LOL. Anyway, I'm slightly jealous of those with a good ear for music! :)

Love your puppy congrats on all those ribbons.
Aw, I love this!

I've been reading and coloring a lot more in my spare time lately. I love breaking out my Prismacolors with the crazy intricate adult coloring books. It's a good creative release without too much artistic commitment haha.
That's adorable!

I currently don't have that much spare time, because said "spare time" is being spent working on a research project - which is both super neat and interesting, but also a bit frustrating. Other than that, I second LadyLaz's words about adult coloring books! I can't wait to get more time to break mine out again.

I'm a mom of a two-year-old and I am a student. Roleplay is pretty much what I do in my spare time.

Though I used to be a rather adept sketcher. I'd like to get back into that.
Your pup is ADORABLE, such a good boy!! Congrats on the ribbons. :D

I knit. ... A lot. And I'm pretty good at it!

That dragon is super cute, Sanne! But the octopus... holy cow, that's impressive!!! :O
I'm not sure if this qualifies or not, but most all of what I do is work when not on rpr. Sometimes I play a video game or when home I have responsibilities to catch up on....but....I feel like this has made me a pretty good driver.

Even I'm surprised as some of the places I've managed to get a 53 ft trailer in with my most recent company, but while a lot of the docks are hard to get to, they pay is great, my boss is great, and overall the company is great to work for. To top it off my truck is gorgeous and I cant stop getting it washed and polishing off the chrome XD

Sure it qualifies! :) Molly is so shiny and purty! I can barely back up the lawn and garden mower straight with the dump cart attached, so it's pretty remarkable to see some of the tight places those huge trucks fit!
Been really struggling with deciding whether to post about this somewhere in the public forums... but... well I've decided to risk it...

I'm in the habit of composing all the theme music for my characters myself.

Mostly I shy away from doing anything involving vocals because of anxiety and risk of embarrassment, but... I decided to take the risk this time with my newest character's theme.

I spent most of the day working on this one (usually my compositions take a lot longer than a day to make XD).

Also, excuse the sound quality, this song was entirely made in my bedroom.

Lyrics
I see a world out there
Shining down upon me
A world of possibilities
Burning down through blackened skies

And I wonder to myself at night
Is there more to life than sitting tight
And dreaming of a destiny
I haven't seen one come to me

Oh
Starlight show
Me the way
To go

Oh
Moonlight know
My wishes are entrusted now to you

I know there's nothing left to hide
From the demons deep inside
And when they come to take from me
Take my possibilities

The power swelling up in me
I feel it growing day by day
A secret bottled up within

Oh
Starlight show
Me the way
To go

Oh
Moonlight know
My wishes are entrusted now to you

And what am I truly to do
I don't know what I am or what I'm for

Oh
Starlight show
Me the way
To go

Oh
Moonlight know
My wishes are entrusted now to you
That's awesome Riik! :) Thanks for sharing it.
