Whats something you like to do?

I myself am a self confessed IT nerd.

I love studying web design, HTML and I also have built my last 2 PCs and upgraded my hubbies.

After working for iiNet for a while I learnt so much about the internet and all the technical stuff regarding email and servers and IP addresses and junk.

I love all this stuff, but its funny because I work in Accounts!!!

Maybe I should go to school and do IT..... maybe I'm too old..

What are your interests and have you ever thought about pursuing them more?

I want to do a massage course with my boyfriend - mostly so he can give me massages though, I'm kinda selfish :P

Other hobbies? I dunno. Watching TV, playing on the internet... playing video games... uh. Drinking, eating. Is studying a hobby?

hmmm hobbies

well i buy take 5 mag each week and like to do the puzzles in them. i like scrapping and card making but rarely get a chance to do it with a little one running around. by the time she is in bed of a day thats my time to do my exercise and then at night time when she is in bed im cleaning up after dinner and tidying up a couple of things and MIGHT get a chance to pop online or watch some telly. just completed all my xmas cards- made them from scratch this year. i like being on this forum and chatting to people and catching up with friends both online and off. i love dvds and movies, i could watch them all day especially if i am home alone which never happens lol. i always wanted to be a film critic growing up but didnt take the right path in life unfortunately. but i can always criticise in my head!

WOW!!! That is SO cool!!!!!!!!! You're going to do AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Here's a present: http://www.boredofstudies.org

It's a student community, mainly focused on HSC but with a growing section on VCE. Anything you don't understand, anything you need help with, post it there, and everyone else will try and help you out. :) It's a really good resource! Slow to load though, I think their servers need upgrading. :)

GOOD LUCK!!!

I'm a theatre nut, and I love films. I've been involved with amateur theatre since I was about 10, and I am GOING to make it my life. :) I'm gonna be an actress, you wait and see! Either that, or a film editor. :)

I got into Amatuer theatre when Ashley was little mainly to meet people and it was so much fun!! But then I moved away and never pursued it again.

thanks everyone :D I am proud :) But also pretty scared too...not only because I havent studied in nearly 6 years, but Im concerned that their may be young ppl in the class.....*sigh* sounds dumb (especially sinceI know it is an 'adult'learning center) but all those high school memories of 'wide load' and 'hey fat a$$' are coming to mind :shock: I know generally people are accepting of ppl....but yeah Im just concerned about that possibility...which is why I want to lose as much weight as I can before then (feb) to feel a little less self concious :( I dont drive either so it means Ill have to catch a train to get there, so some concerns there too! :shock: ahh well hopefully it will be ok!
