What are some interests of yours (besides yo-yoing) that are under appreciated?


#1

I was just looking around the forums and found this topic:
http://yoyoexpert.com/forums/index.php/topic,2498.0.html

I read that and thought, I have many interests that get that reaction.  Not just yo-yoing.

So my question is, what are some interests of yours (besides yo-yoing) that are underrated/under appreciated?

It can be a hobby, a book, a movie, anything.

As stated above, I have many a thing to post, but I want to see if this topic catches on. :wink:

I enjoy reading, which in my school is veiwed as nerdy…

I love chess, Im awful but I love it.

I also play Dungeons and Dragons (Got a level 10 variant ranger baby!) … It is so looked down at at school but my city has a crazy underground following

I like playing golf, (Not serious but just for fun with my dad)

I also collect P.E.Z. dispensers and anything that has to do with Snoopy or Peanuts in general… (Getting a snoopy pez tears me in two, “Which shelf???”)

Rubik’s cubes, Clipping nails, Pen spinning, Monkey bars, getting skinned by the monkey bars…

I like to do lots of unusual things(at my school). I solve Rubik’s Cubes, Speedstack(not much anymore though :(), play WoW(it was unappreciated, but it’s starting to get around), and magic tricks(card tricks mostly–Jumping Gemini FTW! :)).

goes and looks up pen spinning.

I really don’t need another hobby…but that looks very cool!

Prepare yourself for my (very long) list:
Silhouette Portraiture, Hair Wraps, Miniatures, Cootie Catchers, Steampunk.

The Edge Chronicles - Perhaps my favorite book series ever. In fact, its where I got my avatar:http://www.weirdnewworlds.com/blog/?p=199

That series gets such little love, especially here in the US. I had to buy the last book from ebay because they’re not going to sell it over here.

It’s the best book in the series by the way. ;D

Also, for the person who said parkour, I recamend the Barnaby Grimes series. It’s by the same authors as EC and the main character has a job inspired by parkour. (I really need to get around to learning some of that…)
