Well, somewhere in my late teens I shut the curtains once and for all and began to fill my forlorn, etiolated days with internet.
But when I was young and carefree I liked to light and melt stuff. I found it eerily enchanting to watch objects lose their form in the heat and be forced into so many grotesque mutilations of themselves. Naturally I'd write about it in detail afterwards. It's attractive to wield a destructive force at a time in your life when you don't have much power in other areas. This, I think, is often the reason for these things, rather than some incipient psychopathy of the garden variety. Which is nothing but a lazy person's lazy analysis of something that merits more worthy reflection.
I would have to do it in secret and dispose of the blackened remains in the woods later on. Roving through the woods for some murky reason or other was a standard pastime anyway, so it didn't trip anyone's odd-child alarm for me to be out there as the sun sank behind the trees.
When I was prevented from setting something aflame for whatever irksome reason I'd have to content myself with chipping and scraping away at it incrementally. I did this with the raised patterns on my gran's wallpaper over a period of months, applying my fingernails as the implements of destruction. When I knew it was on the cusp of being noticed I fell back on my tried and trusted tactic of bribing my cousin to take the blame. Which she did, of course. She could always be relied on to forget about whatever I had promised her as a reward, so it was no skin off my nose, no lego out of my bucket, no smarties out of my tube. And so on and so forth. I'm a lot of fun.

I feel kind of held back of sharing my hobbies, because they sound so incredibly mundane after having read Edie's
Well okay.. here they are:
- Of course browsing Skadi
- Photography (newfound hobby of mine)
- Eploring the family tree
- Learning Norwegian
- With friends watching movies and playing a game or two
Now tháts a list that will attract women!

A brief list...keep in mind, 'Brief' by my own standards
-Browsing the internet, of course.
-Reading. Primarily non-fiction, philosophical and religious books, and related subjects, but I do enjoy a good fiction every once in a while, especially fantasy and horror. I've recently taken an interest in Traditionalist authors, like Julius Evola, Rene Guenon, and Mircea Eliade, as well as comparative religious scholars like Joseph Campbell.
-Listening to and creating music. I play drums, guitar, and at least I think I can sing. I'm not currently active in a band due to lack of like-minded musicians in my area.
-Hiking. I generally walk or hike at least a mile every day, helps me clear my mind and deal with my anxiety in the same way reading and making music does.
-Art in general, especially drawing and photography. I am quite fond of surrealist, visionary, and fantasy art, and any related styles, and I like both urban and nature photography.
-I used to study martial arts, but let's say that the guy I studied under was a complete scumbag and I was forced to stop going, and haven't found an opportunity to continue
-Thinking. I am so introspective it may as well be a hobby
-Video games. Not as much as I used to, but I will always love my old favorites.
Let truth and falsehood grapple...truth is strong-

Seems like Sybren and I have a couple of common interests.
- Studying history ( You can never know too much about history )
- Call me crazy, but I also enjoy reading about and studying International law and policies ( to a certain point anyways )
- Learning Norwegian, when time permits.
- Enjoying walks / hikes with my dog.
- Toning my hockey skills
- Tracing my surname and ancestors.

Boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, MMA, Fighting.
I've boxed since I was a kid and have had alot of amateur fights. All my time these days is spent training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling to compliment my striking. I will be having my first mixed martial arts fight next month.
Martial arts and fighting are the only things that mean anything to me in this world. Everything else means very little.
Thats what i do with "all" my time.
