What are your passions?
« on: July 30, 2013, 09:15:41 am »
What makes you tick? What makes you wake up in the morning excited about your day? I'm sure most of us would say nutrition/health/raw eating so let's just keep that minimal, unless you have an interested perspective on it.

For me:

-Music; particularly complex music, jazz, classical (art music), and metal. Sax, guitar, and drums, in that order. Music is truly something that is so important in my life, no matter how much happens, it always makes me feel better. It is something that, more than any understanding of history, culture, science, or similar belief/experience, has caused me to believe that God exists. Music is transcendent of humanity and it's universal impact is something that makes me feel unbelievably small and insignificant in a good way, and therefore blessed to be a part of. I'm happy that I'm able to make it my profession.

-Teaching; I really enjoy sharing myself and my knowledge with someone else. Gives me a sense of accomplishment and importance. I've always said, if music didn't exist, I'd still be a teacher. I love working with people and the joy I bring from helping others is incomparable.

-Dogs; particularly German Shepherds. I find the breed to be a step above any other breed. The companionship, determination, loyalty, devotion, and pure raw drive of a German Shepherd is life-changing.

-Controversial issues; I tend to develop mini-passions over time about things that are controversial, so I've decided that it is a passion of mine to go against the grain. For example; exercise doesn't need to be spending 4 hours a day at the gym, sleep doesn't need to be 7-8 hours nightly (Polyphasic was fun and the most difficult thing I've ever done), and I'm a Christian that doesn't think a person needs to say they believe in Christ to go to heaven (and not in the way of being a "good person" as many confused Catholic Americans believe). I like to make people get out of their comfort zone when around me.

Share your passions!

Do you find any interest in sex without love??

Yes, that's interesting if both partners are the last specimens of an endangered species!  ;) :)

Last I heard the Japanese have lost their sex drive.  16 - 19 yr old females 59% not interested in sex.  16-19 yr old males 36% not interested in sex. 

I think we are derailing this thread.

There are other passions out there other than sex.

Electric Universe has some great videos on their Youtube channel. If the big bang did indeed happen, a whole lotta stuff expanded a whole lot faster than the speed of light.

- Science, mostly cell and molecular biology I like to read about. The more I learn about this type of diet tho (darwinian medicine, evolutionary medicine) the less I care to learn about the typical mainstream biology subjects.

- Computers, I am teaching myself C# at the moment.

- Music, heavy metal. Everything from Gothenburg metal to opera influenced and classical type bands.

- Coffee and tea, I stopped drinking both a month ago now, for the first time in 6+ years. One of the best things is studying/learning over coffee or tea. Makes the experience 10x better. I am going to get back into this hobby soon, I can feel it.

- Other hobbies that I develop for a few months at a time. Don't seem to have one right now.

Understanding things, and stuff, in general - particularly fundamentals on which much else is built.

Through my passion for understanding things, I have come to stand up strongly for the ideology of Voluntaryism - which asserts that all human interactions should be voluntary, that the initiation of force or violation of individual negative/self-ownership rights should not be tolerated. I am passionate, only about truth, knowledge, understanding - philosophy in general. That passion therefore shines through to my understanding of specific topics(for example politics and health), though I am not directly invested/passionate in my own thoughts/theories - only in the pursuit of knowledge/understanding in general.

My passions are playing with my grandchildren, watching movies, reading both fiction and non-fiction, sewing/knitting/crocheting, drawing, gardening, and my job.

 :)    bicycles.     :D

not riding, although it can be fun.  fixing them.
i am a mechanic by trade, schooled and certified in automotive, small engine, turf equipment, diesel, etc...  my brain sees shapes and spacial relationships, i can't do numbers.  i compose three dimensional renderings in programs like autocad for fun...  geometry is common sense, but anything beyond basic arithmetic eludes me.

i'd like to say "my kids", but i have reasoned that into being also a "responsibility", not just passion...  i'm defining something as "passion" by omitting things i feel obligated to do, and keeping it to things i love to do...

i used to be passionate about poking smot, until i stopped...   now i realize just how much time and money i wasted.

 :)    spending time with mother nature...  especially during a "lull" time (such as now), it is obvious to me just how much "the mother", and being in a position to connect with her on a personal level, means to me...  i love the outdoors, and witnessing the beauty and spectacle she holds...     :)

I love looking into nutrition. Self healing has been a passion of mine for some time. I want to be the healthiest I can be.

I also love sports.

I love music too.

Attraction

Through observation and research Im trying to find out what makes someone attractive (and succesfull).
After almost 8 years I have my theory, but Im still working out the details.

Desserts come last after dinner.

Also, I can live pretty well without a woman but it's a lot harder to live well without a cow.

May I quote you? That's a great saying, and I want to find a place to insert it during my daily conversations. I plan to change only one of the nouns.

You know i was thinking. perhaps i just haven't been properly engaged with the right woman, and this theoretical right woman would surpass the benefits of the cow. however two thousand pounds of cheddar is not an easy score to beat.
