Anybody have any interesting hobbies? I like fixing/improving things and collecting various forms of outdated media. I also like to dabble in various forms of art, if I'm in the right mood for it.

No, still no luck. I haven't really been looking too hard though. Not a lot of pressure for me to do so, so I put it off and forget. I'm not sharing my car at the very least, so at least the possibility is there.
Saxophone, eh? I've always been more of a fan of the brasswind instruments myself, but I guess saxophones are alright.

I haven't gotten into it yet, but I want to start doing outdoors stuff like camping or just hiking. Now that it's getting warm here, I really want to start getting outside and doing something, rather than sitting around on the internet all day.

Anything to do at the beach besides running? I could probably 'swim' but the waves are strong sometimes so I end up surfing the waves with my body.

Yeah I don't plan to stop shooting film, ever, if I can help it. It just feels better.

I'm in the same situation, but i really should try a bit harder when it comes to looking for jobs. Usually I just look at them a bit and end up not really sending in any applications. I've had the saxophone since middle school so I figured I may as well try to play it.

I'm not content at all. Everything sucks right now. I'm moving soon, and I'll be an hour drive away from all my friends. I've been holding off on getting a job because I don't want to have a long ass commute to some shitty fast food job or something. I'm bored after doing nothing for an entire year, and I'm ready to make some moves and do my own thing, so hopefully I'll get to it once I move.

Not quite. I'm almost a wizard and still haven't moved out of my parents' house. On the other hand, I don't think I'm that far off from being able to make enough money to do so.

I'm going to miss all my free time.

I was extremely happy with my situation about a week ago, but now, thanks to my job deciding to ruin things for me after I spent years getting in to a spot I like, I am not.

I'm not, but I'm making steps towards fixing myself. These things take their time though so I shouldn't be too obsessed about it.

What are you all reading these days, friends? I am currently enjoying reading How to Eat, written by the Zen Buddhist monk Thich Nath Hanh. It is a very comfy and peaceful book on how to enjoy eating more. Here is an excerpt:

"Six food contemplations for young people:

1. The food is the gift of the whole universe: the Earth, the sky, the rain, and the sun.

2. We thank the people who have made this food, especially the farmers, the people at the market, and the cooks.

3. We only put on our plate as much food as we can eat.

4. We want to chew the food slowly so that we can enjoy it.

5. This food gives us energy to practice being more loving and understanding.

6. We eat this food in order to be healthy and happy, and to love each other as family".

Not to sound rude but reading one or two sentences doesn't mean you are functionally literate, to be literate you need to comprehend full paragraphs and chapters

Honestly, it's for professionals from a slightly-more-experienced professional. If you aren't a seasoned pro, then that book will basically be mostly full of irrelevancies to you – as the subtitle implies.

I'm a professional, I hoped journeyman would include my situation but I honestly don't know what that is supposed to exactly mean. According to my job title, I am between junior and senior, they do not give it a name, just plain whatever-your-role-is. If journeyman is a seasoned pro what could the master be?

Dedicated Commitment Achievement Unlocked ? :^)

OK, if you're already a pro then I'm not sure what else to suggest. I found it both interesting and filled with wisdom. If you're math-inclined then you might read Elements of Programming by Stepanov, et al. It's kind of a timeless work IMO, and uses a subset of C++ for instructional examples.

No Starch imprint has a wealth of good/great books, and there are a few nice ones from O'Reilly too.

I'm really good with animals, they tend to like me a lot, but I wouldn't want a pet myself. I wouldn't mind having a reptile or something "clean" like that, but I can't stand the filth they make.

I love dogs but wouldn't want one if I had to be responsible for it. They also shed, and if you get a non-shedding one they'll need to be trimmed constantly.

Yeah, me too man. Whenever I hang out with my buddies, I play with their dogs more than anything.

I think it's neat. I've always liked frogs, but didn't know how they behaved before. I didn't know they'd eat just about anything they can fit in their mouths.

My two favorite channels are Hikikomori Media and Battletoad OVerload.

The former is a review and video-essayist about primarily japanese games. He has a real passion for them and his videos have a lot of production value (considering the lack of budget). His humor is also my kind. His Simple Series videos are my favorite.

Battletoad OVerload is simple and delievers every time. He plays Battletoads on all CRTs he finds, that's it. Sometimes Castlevania too. Pure comf.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OP!
Since this thread popped up and I noticed that a couple more friends with March birthdays joined in, I thought it an interesting trend and became curious. I decided to do a quick web search about this months zodiac sign. I just clicked on the first generic page that came up and was a little surprised at what I saw. Highlighted in the screenshot are some parts I found interesting.
TLDR:Pisces are known to be kind and dislike bullies.

Anybody here /kind/ on the web, /bully/ to the friends?
A friend of mine called me the bully of our little friend group, and I can't exactly disagree. Doing a little light bullying is just too fun!

¨Friends¨. that's the keyword here. At least anons here seem to realize that they take it too far but if the banter is completely one sided and one of them gets mad when the other fights back I consider that bullying and it's better to leave the relationship like >>3624 >>3540.

It's not for you to decide if two people are friends. They decide that between themselves. These do seem one sided but it's probably because we're only getting one side of the story. With little context.

I don't see any of this in those posts. Seems like you're just projecting grievances from failed friendships you had on to these posts.

>>3624 here. My intentions are good, and it's not like I'm always being an asshole to him. I just don't think it's good to baby people all the time. We are very close friends, and he's always certain to tell me when he's in town. He hasn't fought back in over a year either. He clearly doesn't mind.
>People don't really want to see you change and stop being their joke punching bag.
I see that you didn't read my post. You shouldn't use examples while just filling in the blanks yourself.
>>4479
I worded that incorrectly. He's just incredibly passive. He doesn't initiate anything for the most part, and in groups he doesn't really talk. It wasn't much of an issue in the past, but I don't want to see him become friendless once he finished school or miss out on being a young man for that matter.
