What Rules Your Life?

Postby Ozental » Tue Apr 18, 2006 11:27 am

OK, we all know the answer to the question "What rules your life?". Obviously it's RPG Forums Online. But there must be more to you than that, surely? So when you're not playing forum or RPG games, what else do you most often do with your spare time?

I picked "Browse the Web" becuase its the only one that actually fits what I do. I also read during my spare time.

But to answer what truly rules my life now: My career rules it.

Well, I do a variety of things.

I play games, post on other sites, go out with my friend and play football (English) etc..

I have a wide range of activities that I enjoy doing :).

Well, I do spend a fair bit of time on RPGFO, but this is what else I do with my time.

1) Train and instruct down at a Dojo. I'm retiring in three months. Trying to get out of the combat world for good.

2) I play touch football, and I coach rugby league, under 9's, 14's, 18's and opens.

3) I also model. I'm an airbrush model, so I get airbrushed, with either tattoos or full body art, so I parade around catwalks and runways in a thong and nipple tape, all painted. If its just tattoos, I'm costumed, with a theme. I did angel wings tonight, the same ones that are in the photo in my gallery, and I was dressed in the most gorgeous blue, backless flowy dress... I wish I had pictures :(, but I wasn't allowed to take any. People have to pay for them.

I'm also a hair model. So I get free stuff done to my hair, like cuts and colours, and then they pose me and take photos of my hair and face and stuff. Decent wage too, with both of them.

4) With the rest of my time, I write. I write erotica, and other bits of writings. I also run a website for my university.

And then there is always the partying and stuff. Woohoo!!

*smooches to you all*

I spend all my "spare" time with my family, so I put that I am with friends, since my wife is my closest friend and currently my son likes to spend time with me, so I spend as much as I can with him, for I know that won't last as he gets older, so I am trying to enjoy all I can now.

Wow, Gideon, sounds like you have a busy life.

Other hobbies, I guess, even though it sounds a bit boring. "Other hobbies rule my life" Oh well.

I write a good part, mostly in Norwegian, I'm trying to become some sort of writer, journalist, reporter, author, something. So I write for a text-based console game, for Attac, for myself, for the conscious objector - paper and for a movie project my friends and I currently work on. I train a lot, mostly running, but also some lifting of heavy stuff. I'm a member of a movie club, and watches a lot of weird films with friends there. I'm a conscious objector, so I work 40 hours a week in a kindergarten. I study social psychology. I'm in love with the only girl who ever has managed to stop my constant flow of words. I drink, I drive, I read, I have fun, I post here. I also try to sleep.

I dont drink and drive. I drink and drive and juggle. You know how many people were killed by drinking, driving and juggling last year? 2. I'm not taking any chances.

Yeah, I am rather busy Zan, yet I manage to spend stupid amounts of time on here. I spend late nights online, speaking with my darling One.

Nothing really rules my life. It used to be work but since January things are slow for us in the construction trade. Perhaps the computer rules my life. I do spend an unhealthy amount of time on it, though that's mostly either talking to my love, posting on the forums, or playing the most addictive game in the world ever. World of Warcraft. Yet I think if I combined all the time I spend on the computer throughout the week, and all the time I spend with friends and family during the week, I think they'd pretty much even out.

Well... My wife is the only one thing that dominates my time, but I have an enormous list of hobbies that changes almost weekly.

Here is this weeks list in a nut shell:

Working on my Fable: The War of Gods pen & paper d20 campaign, researching and obtaining Live Sound (concert) equipment, concept sketches and rough drafts for my Drawing for Animation college class, creating computer rendered frames and orgainzing them into short animations for my Intro to Animation college class, working 40 hours a week pushing papers and answering the phone, creating the occasional avatar, signature, and/or banner, research regarding sci-fi weapons and technologies for a discussion, jamming with my band for a few hours, going to the park to feed the ducks, visiting a family friend of my wife's, shopping, eating, playing the Sims 2, playing Fable: The Lost Chapters, and lastly trying to find time to sleep.

Those are things unrelated to RPGFO for this week. My "to do" list for the site is about the same size, although I'm not as hard pressed to get them done.

I don't really do anything other than sit online and lurk. I RP and talk to people through MSN and various messageboards/chatrooms, that's my life (: For much the same reason as Darkblade, oddly enough.

I put hang out with friends but the problem is when I'm with my friends we are either Rping or talking about Rping, usually if I'm not doing Rp related stuff I'm talking to or being with my girl friend. It's amazing I have no life and a girl friend i got it all. :lol:

I'm usually playing sports, Hockey and Badminton usually. My sister and I own at Badminton. I've just started playing hockey and Saturdays my Dad and I hike also my mom takes us to the park and we listen to music and swing for like an hour! But this site is pretty much the only site I come one now. Everything else is boring!

If it doesn't have to do with history, I hate reading!
