    Default What are/were your obsessions?

    Could be a hobby, a field of study, culture, or anything :P

    Were there things that you were deeply interested into, much than 'usual'?

    Things that I have been interested deeply are, to name some from top of my head...

    1. Birds. Since meeting a teacher in elementary school who was an expert in them, I read bought field guides and reference books about them. I used to draw them a lot, and had a bird feeder outside until my family moved to the city where I couldn't have it anymore. Though I am not into the topic as much as when I was little, I still read about them often and enjoy watching documentaries about them.
    2. MLP. ...see my avatar and I used to have them in my signature often (might again soon). I saw all of the eps so far and it's been great!
    3. Rock music. Recently I'm into it like crazy. I knew groups like Linkin Park, Green Day, and Evanescence for a while and have liked their songs, but recently I've been obsessed with System of a Down's songs.

    I go through these...phases of obsession.
    First one was Ancient Egypt, I researched it like crazy and I've got at least a dozen books on it...
    Second one was dragons. I loved dragons.
    Third one, that I'm still obsessed with is anime and manga. 8D

    Previous obsessions (I tried to put these in order):

    1. Magic Tree House series - Damn, I used to love these when I was about 7-8. I can't believe it's still going on. I would still read them if I could xD
    2. Babysitters Club series - At the same time as my MTH obsession. My favourite babysitter was Claudia.
    3. The Suite Life of Zack and Cody - I've watched every episode at least a couple times.
    4. The following movies: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Peter Pan (2003 live action -- I've never seen the Disney one), Spider-Man 2, Taxi (2004)
    5. All things fantasy
    6. Avril Lavigne - When I was about 11.

    I have too many previous obsessions to name, so I'll just name the current ones.

    1. Dream World. I don't know why, but I'm always eager to see what Pokemon I'll see next, and getting to pick which one I get to take back with me.

    2. Shiny Hunting/Masuda Breeding. I don't know why this one is so fascinating to me. It's very time consuming, but something about finally hatching that shiny makes it all worth it.

    3. College/school. I've become obsessed with school. Something intrigues me, and I just want more. Well, I've got 5+ years of schooling left, so I should be set. XD

    4. Day dreaming. It's fun just to space out and let your mind wander. ^^

    My obsessions:
    BMGF: Love it. Am totally and completely addicted to this place. I think it made me crazy @_@

    Shiny Pokemon: I love them, I dont really know why, I just do. I think they look cool and go out of my way to find them. I will often soft reset a lot for a target I want.

    Glee: OMG i love this show.

    Kittens/ cute animals: Since I started volenteering at the animal shelter this summer Ive become a bit obsessed with kittens. I really want one @_@

    Hmm, let me think:

    Useless facts. Did you know (or do you care) that mushrooms are more closely related to humans than they are to plants?
    Geography. Have you heard of Tuvalu? None of my friends have.
    Politics. I know, boring. But it's nice to know things. Like how the best system of government is a purely symbolic monarchy with a president-less representative democracy in parlaiment, which is why I should probably move to the UK when I grow up
    Electronic music. Alternative rock will forever be my favorite genre of music, but I've recently dicovered the joys of house. I worry for my dubstep-loving brother.
    My Little Pony. Yo, this show rocks.
    The Internet. I find it fascinating that something created by human hands can take on its own rules and its own science and act completely out of our control. Like economics.
    Movies. I plan to be a screenwriter when I grow up.

    That's all I can think of right now.

    • 80's music. Even though I wasn't even alive during that decade. I iherited this from my dad, who loves it. Since I'm little I've been used to hearing songs from the 80's that my dad listens to. :)

    • Horror movies. I've developed an obsession with them over the past few years... I'm always looking for good horror movies to watch. I enjoy watching these, even though I usually end up screaming and getting startled a few times, but that's why it's so thrilling. xD

    • The color pink. If you couldn't guess, just take a look at my profile. xD Basically, a lot of things I own are pink. To name a few, my laptop is pink, my DS Lite is pink, my Ipod is pink, my room is mostly pink... Hell, even my hair straightener is pink.

    • And obviously, I'm a bit obsessed with the Subway Masters and the Pokémon Snivy. :P

    - Fast stuff. Animals, Pokémon, music, lightnings... anything. Always liked.
    - Salmiakki. The Finnish salty liquorice with ammoniac in it. Tooooo good.
    - Collecting all kinds of Pokémon stuff. I'm still not sure if it's a hobby or just a weird obsession I can't get rid of. I even save the packages of the figurines and things. If it's legal, I'm not going to let go.

    god, I go through obsessions like water.

    - music, but especially rap, & especially underground/sociopolitical/lyrical rap. God I fckin love that kind of rap.
    - anime & manga. current animanga obsession would be Girls Bravo
    - video games. currently would be MvC3 & Pokemon BW
    - sociology. It's impossible to ever fully understand humans & the numerous societies but dammit everything about sociology intrigues me so much
    - comics. I love Batman, X-Men, & Deadpool the most
    - the 90s in general. I never take off my nostalgia glasses. never.
    - ethnic/minority girls. all girls are beautiful but I absolutely love girls with ancestry/ethnicity outside of the Europeans. I'm especially fond of black girls, asian girls, & Native American girls, to be brief.
    - radicalism. cuz down with the man, man!
    - animals. oh my god I love animals, all animals. God's creatures are so beautiful.
    - weed. granted, I'm not a stoner, but I'm constantly stressed & need an escape from reality & this sometimes vice works miracles
    - culture. I'm a culture cosmopolitan. Im not fond of American culture, but I love & study many many cultures, some of which include African, Native American, Japanese, Chinese, Irish/Celtic, Norway/Nordic, Filippino, Russian.
    - mythology. love mythology, especially Japanese, Native american, & the like
    - religion. studying religion is so interesting, just the many various religions, from Abrahamic, Taoism, Buddhism, Shintou, etc. so interesting
    - cartoons. especially 90s cartoons.

    I have a couple obsessions that I have in my hands.
    • Roads, Highways, Maps, and Signs - I just love this hobby. It's something you see every single day and it really matters to us. It can also get pretty interesting as well, i.e. Zzyzx Road on I-15 to Vegas. I love to take road pictures and basically all my pictures are about signs and roads. I also make up my own signs to go alongside my made-up maps.
    • Airplanes - I just love the different varieties of airplanes and airlines around the worl. This can be really colorful because of all the different liveries. I also have a collection of 1:400 scale commercial airplanes.
    • License Plates - Another interesting hobby of mine. The reason why I like going to tourist-y areas (i.e. San Francisco, Monterey, etc.), but it my end up in my hometown as well. Also, you never know what you can see in a day. This always keeps me awake on long trips on the highways. Even California plates are interesting to me. BTW, I've seen each states' license plates except Delaware and Vermont.
    • Bulbagarden/Facebook - A big obsession of mine. Says for itself, and easily understandable for you people.
    • Information Books - I'm not really a big reader of true literature, but I have a chock-full of informational books. Probably why I'm so smart.
    • Great Design - I'm really picky about the designs I see in my daily life, especially my school's [sucky] yearbook. Why I am in yearbook club this year.
