Hmmm... Hobbies?

It came to my attention as soon as I finished up this last semester that I really have no hobbies. This is a direct result of never having free time. How incredibly lame. Especially when you're on a date and guy asks, "So... what do you do in your free time?"

Yeah. I have no good answer. At all. Mostly I'd spend my time studying, sleeping, dancing, sleeping, studying, sleeping, and you know... eating. Nom nom nom.

In the last few school-less weeks, I've noticed a few other things I like to do with my free time.

1) Movies. I've been watching a movie nearly every night for a few months. Who knew?

2) Reading. I did like to do this when I was little. I've been craving a good read... and alas, I have no books.

3) People. I like finding people I love, listening to them, and doing what they want to do.

4) Coloring. I knew this. It just never came to mind as a hobby.

5) Writing. I also love to write, and so... I should do that more often.

6) Cooking/baking. I need to make a pie for May. It might have to be chocolate creme because I heart chocolate creme.

7) Others yet to be discovered...

I've still been super busy... except for homework... there isn't any. None. Whoa! As for work though, I love both my jobs. The Chemistry Central Stockroom is so wonderful. The manager, Gypzy, is so cool. And the assistant manager, Linda, is so sweet and maternal, it just makes me warm fuzzy. That place is just fun. I think I want to get those two Mother's Day presents. Because, um, they're cool. And they've been like mothers to me. I'm also a teaching assistant for analytical chemistry. I love that too.

Except when I get really dumb questions. Like when a student has a very obviously green solution, and pesters me, begging me to tell them if their solution is green. It seems like none of them have any confidence in the laboratory. (Well, that's an exaggeration... not all of them asked me color questions.)

And then one poor student was partially color blind, and really couldn't tell if his solution was a certain color or not. I was totally fed up with this kid, until he finally mentioned in a bit of embarrassment that no really -- he couldn't tell. Color blind! Yikes. That made me feel a bit bad...

Anything else exciting in my life?

... Oh, duh. Boyfriend! Eee! His name is James and he's fun, and smart, and exciting, and good-looking, and I like him, and he likes me, and he's got some mad skills. But I'm not one to go on and on and on about boys. I'm still not quite okay with this whole not being immune to crushes thing. And he is, however, leaving Provo in a few months... which does make me squirm a little. Squirm. Squirm. Squirm.

Okay, I'm done. I have to run out the door in seven minutes to get to work on time.


  1. James is a good, solid name. I approve. :)

  2. As do I. Truly an excellent name. Speaking of books, I have a small of collection of 20 or 30 if you want to take a look some time.
