Your longest running hobby?

    I was wondering what you're longest running hobby/hobbies have been?

    It's funny, but I have some of the same main hobbies as I did when I was little. The internet has made it handy so I can finally find others into the same stuff, as well as buy the stuff online.

    When I was little my main hobbies as far as collecting/watching was Muppets, anime, Star Wars, video games, and comic books.
    A little over two decades later, I still have all those main passions, except for Star Wars(which started to wane a few years ago) It's just kind of amusing to sit back and realize youve had the same passions you did way back when.

    Is there any hobbies that surprise you that have stuck aroudn so long? What are some newer ones for you? The only hobby I have now that I wasnt really into when I was little is music I think, even movies I was really into back then.

    As far as collecting things goes: Muppets. I don't really COLLECT too much stuff from other things. Cost too much to keep up with the Muppets as it is! Though, I used to collect alot of Star Trek stuff.

    My current hobbies (almost wrote Hoobies. Ha!): Puppet building, film making, writing (but, only so I can make movies), drawing, and, I've started getting into painting.

    Other things of note: Hanging out with my friends, and, I hope to get pretty good at driving soon.

    I'm sure there's other things I'm into. I'm just really tired right now. :)

    My big ones that haven't changed a ho lot since I was about five are Sesame Street/Muppets, Star Wars, reading, and drawing. Other things have come and gone, but those things have been pretty constant. Throw in SuperFriends, I guess. And Fisher Price Little People--but that was something that went away until I was twenty-something, and then I woke up and started collecting them again.

    Yeah. I used to be really into Legos. I was thinking about starting up a Lego collection again, but, I never did.

    Maybe I will someday.

    I didn't own a single Lego until I was 14 years old. Late bloomer. But once I started, I never went back. Looking forward to getting Jabba's Palace this month!

    But since I didn't get onboard the Lego train till I was a teenager, I didn't count that one.

    I heart Legos.

    Muppet Fandom - have been a fan all my life. Somehow that never surprised me, although thinking about what it brought me makes me realise what a big influence the Muppets have had on my life. I've met so many wonderful Muppetfans. I've been inside the Henson Townhouse in New York. I've started a one man puppetry company, and the Muppets inspired me to do more with theatre. And of course, most of my English comes from the Muppets.

    Theatre and music - Like I said, it comes from the Muppets. As a kid I loved to fool around in school plays. I started piano lessons when I was eight, but I never thought I'd enjoy it as much as I do now. And I didn't start singing till about three years ago. Right now I'm at the point of making my own one man show... I'd never thunka dat years ago!

    PVC Collecting - one hobby I stopped. It got too much. Smurfs, Disney, cartoons I never knew existed... where would it stop? So I decided to focus on Muppets. My enormous PVC collection is still in my room though. It's in boxes, and I wouldn't dare to sell them. Maybe when I can't afford any more Palisades exclusives.

    Drawing, of course! I've been drawing since I was 7. When I was young I was partially inspired by both the newspaper comics I read (inc. Garfield, Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, etc.) and by the Play-Along video "Wow, You're A Cartoonist!".

    Cartooning is the one that managed to stick. I allways used to do little doodles, and I was ten when I made it a career choice and even started thinking up my own characters.

    I did like the Muppets as a kid, but It wasn't until about two years ago that I would have considered it a 'hobby'.

    I thought I already posted to this... guess not.

    Looking back at when I was a wittle kid, I don't do those hobbies anymore. No more baseball cards. No more beating up the weak kid on the playground. Nothing like that. I guess my longest running hobby would be puppeting. I started when I was 13, so that's what.... 15+ years. I guess girl watching I've done for a couple of extra years, but that officially stopped in 2000 when I got married, so it no longer is a running hobby. Next up would probably be.......... heroclix? Not a lot of hobbies...

    I've had many hobbies I think that I've been collecting everything that one can collect.

    But the thing that have been the longest are stamps, that to one point I'am still doing this day. But I've been mostly focused on my small muppet collection in the later years.

    Some of the other things are stickers, bottle caps, lego (By the way LEGO means "LEg GOdt" translated that makes "play well" or something like that), key chains just to mention a few things.
