Being a general nuisance and limitless fount of irritation and despair for every adult who falls within my sphere of influence.

Coin collecting (I still have many of the coins), reading, astronomy (with a very poor telescope, but it allowed me to see the moons of Jupiter and rings of Saturn), playing the trumpet (for a year or so), math.

Reading, writing, and drawing. 

I used to collect those action figures they had in movie and video game shops in the mall. I never played Final Fantasy VIII or Darkstalkers but I had every one of the main characters in 6" heavy plastic form with movable arms and legs. I had probably 50 at one time, having collected from a variety of sources, like the Pokemon anime(the human characters, like Ash, Brock, Misty, and Jessie and James), a couple of X-MEN, a few from video games I never played, Hellraiser cenobites, etc. I think I even had Sarumon but none of the other characters from the Peter Jackson trilogy. My friends and I would make up adventure stories about them and fighting tournaments. Dear Hastur, so many fighting tournaments.

I had a brief stint as a early teen in model airplaines, specifically millitary arplains. I once bought a F-14 Tomcat model kit. I glued it together, no problem. But, I ended up painting it camoflauge.

Video Games. My older brother was a big gamer, and one day I picked up his Nintendo and started playing Mega Man 2. He told me that I couldn't beat it because girls weren't good at video games. I proved him wrong, and have since beaten every Mega Man game, along with several others.

Soccer. I played on the soccer team for a few years.

Cheerleading. I now coach it! Though this year we haven't been able to really have a team. (My eldest daughters were kind of sad about that, but glad they don't have to deal with their mom as coach lol)

Scrabble. My older brother is a scrabble genius who's won tournaments. So I was also VERY determined to beat him one day. (I've beaten him all of three times. Which isn't too bad.)

I'm not sure it was a hobby or simple boredom. I was grounded a lot and often stuck in the bedroom I shared with my little sister. We didn't have a TV in our room, just my old plastic Sears clamshell record player for entertainment. I put together jigsaw puzzles and since the selection we had was kind of slim I would resort to putting them together on the wrong side...with the cardboard backing side up. I suppose it was great preparation for 50 years later being stuck in the house for days/weeks/months on end with little to do. Most likely I was nearly as prepared for this pandemic as someone who spent years in solitary.

I assembled plastic models, started out with paint-by-numbers paintings and eventually upgraded to oil painting, and had large collections of comic books and LPs.

Weed, mostly.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!
