Dancing is one of my childhood hobbies that i still do day to day. I started it when i was a toddler. No it might not help me in a self defense situation like yours will, ha ha, but i feel that i can gain friends by it. I think the hobbies you have stuck to from when you were a child will be very important in the future. So keep up the good work and have fun doing it.(:

Music is my hobby since i was a kid, better to say, since by birth. I really love music as a great part of my life. It helps me to move forward in any bad situations in my life. I just refresh my mind, heart, soul everything with the help of music. I can not imagine the world without music. What would I've done if music was not there here on earth, it's a great wonder to me. I just love music. Both playing or singing and listening too.

Fishing has been my hobby since the day I could walk. I love it now more than ever probably because I'm so much better at it so I catch more fish. I think it's the challenge that I love so much, it's fun trying to catch big fish or a large number of fish. Also, it's just so relaxing getting some sun and having a good time on a lake or in the ocean. I've also been involved in boxing since I was about 5. My grandfather was a big time boxer and my great grandfather trained some of the best boxers of their time. I still do it from time to time, but not like I used to.

Dear friend, I too used to practice martial arts, but more than my long lasting hobby is watching movies and listening to music. After the got into internet then browsing became another hoppy. But I like watching movies most among my child hood hobbies.

Well I always love collecting toys and other stuff. That is something I just couldn't outgrow. Every payday I visit toy store to buy cards and action figure. My partner seems worried that her bf is a man child but those collections of mine are a perfect means to bond with our kids.

I started crocheting when I was 9 years old. I saw my grandmother doing doing it and she showed me all the curtains and bedsheets she had done. It was a cabinet full and had designs of pineapples and the names of her children. I also saw some vests and shirts. Boy... I fell in love with crocheting after that. I had a lot of practice and it was very hard for me at first. I had stopped and then return to it as a hobby. It is time consuming and needs a lot of concentration to follow the designs. So far, I never finish my dream curtains but I did have 2 jackets, 2 vests, 3 shirts, some doilies I given away to friends and some cellphone housing I sold. Another hobby that took my time is cross-stitch, I was 13 when I started it and it fascinated me more than crocheting... I have finished more patterns here, framed some and mostly gave them away to friends. Most of my designs are pet dogs, angels and sceneries. I enjoy them both very much. Now that I have work, I wish I could devote time to them again. Thanks William. Happy mylotting.

I have lots of hobby's when I was young but it has been a long time. I have learned cross stitch, reading books, singing and lots more. I still do most of them but time sometimes is not enough for me to do all those things. I just do what I can on my spare time..

Yes I have hobby of collecting different coin which were available in our country I have a huge set of coins with me. It is nice that I have preserved them from my childhood. Actually my granny has a small shop and I used to sit there during vacations then I used to organize coins in her drawer and then realized that there are many different coins and decided about collecting them. I think I was just 12 when I started this and still collecting coins whenever some new coin is launched or whenever i find some of the cold ones.

Yes, I had hobby of reading comic books since childhood, and I have it till date. I don't miss a chance to buy the new books. And whenever I do travelling , at that time I definately buy couple or comic books or more. I really enjoy reading them and even today when I am DAD of a 1.5 year baby, still that hobby has not changed. Infact I have observed that my friends have also started reading them, first they used to pull my legs, that even at this age I am reading comics, and now they borrow the comic books from me .

probably caused by the bombardment of Japanese animation on TV, I've been drawing anime since I was a kid
