Drawing- Manga and anime art, mostly. Anything goes for me, I draw portraits, fashion design, animals, medical stuff, but manga art most fascinates me. I draw mostly original character designs now because I'm dedicated to writing novels too. I do not happen to watch new anime now or read any new manga other than those I'm currently subscribed to. I'm nowhere near drawing a proper manga (conversation bubbles and all that) but I'm alright with cover arts and posters. I do them traditionally (paper/pen/colored pencils/ watercolor) until 20. I'm 21 now and I've leaned to digital coloring. Still learning it. ^_^
Novel writing- I'm dedicated to developing a particular story line and I love making different personalities interact. I have a background of joining and winning essay and feature writing contests ever since my youth, say they are stressful so I decided to do away with them.
I'm very much happy writing stories now. I'm very attached to my novel's characters. I integrate my thoughts with theirs.
Anime Music covers- Weird, I know! But I sing anime songs. I don't know but I fall in love with songstress characters and look up to singing voice actresses very much, take Rie Tanaka for example. Needless to say, I'm a Lacus Clyne fan. I sing her songs, I cosplay her, and that's why I do peace talks, too. I talk about peace and social justice in my novels, as if that wasn't enough. I consider myself weird. :p
Cosplay- I'm not a very enthusiastic cosplayer and I don't call myself one. I left the Philippine cosplay community at 18. I find my reasons for cosplaying incongruent compared to most people who cosplay. I'm introverted, and even among co-otakus who understand what you love doing, I'm quite the oddball. I can say though that I'm fond of dressing up. It's a hobby to make your favorite characters come to life, and sing their songs if ever, for me.
Photography- used to be really photography-crazed. Not until med school came. Little to no time getting my hands on either my camera, travel, interesting subjects. But for sure, if I had the time, I will definitely be learning this a lot. Kyaa.
Advocacy- Health and environmentalist movements are within my desired profession's range (Medicine). I was born from a family of doctors. I hear scientific applications of even the most trivial events all of the time, and I figured out it's not bad sharing them to people. I mostly share about skincare, getting fit, getting healthy, animal rights, global warming issues, and whatnot.
Beliefs- I highly believe in Existentialism. Surprisingly, it doesn't contradict my Christian/ Catholic beliefs although my idol, Nietzsche is an atheist. I am inspired by the superior human being who finds his own way in life (I'm an individualist, too) and finds deep meaning even amidst trials and sufferings. I also believe in embracing one's fate.
Dieting and exercise- Yes, it's a hobby! I'm one to find fulfillment at keeping track of what I eat and what activities I do. I feel blessed of having the opportunity to do something for my health while at a considerably early age. I'm a health freak.
I have a sweet tooth though, but is controllable unless I'm approaching my period. That way, I hate being a girl sometimes.
Keeping in track with fashion and beauty trends- Make-up and skincare, shopping, clothes, fashion accessories, hair styles and hair coloring. Oh what can I do, I'm a girl. We all obsess with image at some point. I haven't even found an image style worth keeping. I can't seem to outgrow being all princess-ed and doll-ed up. I hope someday I will find an image that still suits my cute and pretty fancy but acceptable to the professional world.
There goes most of them. I have hobbies unrelated to Medicine which I believe is my born passion, but as all of us are, I'm proud being multi-passionate. Yay to all of us!
