I play the Snare Drum and Violin and Piano and stuff. I also play video games and derp around with friends.

This is a Snare exercise I learned. It's the exercise followed by a professor playing it in fast time. I had to trim the video and then convert to a mp3 so it's in dropbox form.

I read books, constantly. Comic books as well.
I'm also outdoorsy in theory, but not as much in practice as I'd like to be. I do help run a summer camp with friends and take children into the woods for a week, but that's about all I can muster these days.

I'm active with a political party, which consumes my time when I'm not at uni making good with the learnings. That and vidya.

People fling that word around, and don't even know what it means. Using it to describe persons who weren't even described by that word.

If I said I was, would it make a difference in how you view me because of this?

Of course not, believe in what you want.
How'd you get involved in that sort of thing?

I play tabletop RPGs, do little electronics projects, and write code. I tinker with my desktop a bunch. I like to ride my bike and tinker with that, too.

And a little socialism is a good thing.

I'm a writer.

I just finished the second draft of the Novel I've been writing for the last three years. A couple more drafts and it might be ready for publishing. I also write screenplays, and I have one script I've just started pitching recently.

So hey, maybe one day you'll read or watch my stuff, and you won't even know it was me.

Niknakflak, I remember the first part (just the first 2/4) of that exercise, when someone can do that from slow to really quick it sounds awesome, just like a steam train starting up.

Been playing acoustic guitar for 8 years or so and am soon going to 3d-model for a living. I got a job by just practically showing them my modellings I did just for fun while learning to use ZBrush. http://imgur.com/a/cRWBR/

I write shit. Poetry, songs, analysis of books I like. The act of writing is just fun to me.

I also started learning piano solely to learn the final fantasy 7 ost on it.

I read a lot of books and occasionally go for walks and stuff in a nearby woods not far from where I live. When I'm not doing those, i'm trying to chill by playing games or I'm at college.

Btw if any of you guys, who are into writing, want to have a little fun and continue the http://tgstation13.org/wiki/Woody%27s_Got_Wood analysis-page, you are more than welcome! I find it hilarious and it would be awesome if someone continued it.
