I'm an outdoorsy kind of dude, I climb mountains like this one, this one and also this one. I also like hunting, mountain biking and basketball. I'm also interested in Linguistics, I know spanish and bit's and pieces of other languages like french, latin, and german. But yeah, cubing is probably my second biggest hobby after mountaineering. Wow, I have a lot of hobbies...

Now that I think about it, I'm also interested in Languages: I'm Italian, both my parents are Italian, and at the age of 11 I started learning English more seriously, by just watching a lot of English videos, so that I could develop my listening skills. I think I can say that when I was 13 I could basically understand everything said in videos, and that I could speak English.

I think learning about other hobbies that cubers share is really interesting. It seems that they usually share the same interests when I go to competitions, like yoyoing and producing electronic music and math. I bet there's some crazy science behind our brains because everyone has felt that "feeling" of "togetherness" when they go to a competition. There's just a unity that you know that everyone there shares the same hobby. I'm very interested though, have any of you seem any other weird hobbies that you can practice or pick up on the go and mess with just like a cube? I've recently seem an ad for a thing called a thumb-chuck, look it up it's kinda cool. The most popular non-cubing hobby that cubers have seems to be yoyoing. (And no I'm not trying to switch hobbies nothing is better than cubing :D"

I usually read, very good at violin, and listen to Zack Hemsey's music (you might not know who he is) I also used to play baseball, but I quit because I figured I'm bad, and I play basketball, but I never practice anymore. That is because I used to practice everyday in freezing winter for like 40 minutes and I noticed no improvement. I am really active, I exercise, but I just can't do sports.

I play soccer (have since I was 3), run track and wrestle. I also like to run road races. I used to be into origami, duct tape crafts, learning German, and freestyle soccer; I've stopped all three activities years ago (sometimes I still do fs soccer). Recently, I've just been stalking the Naval Academy and West Point's admission pages, cubing, and sometimes I feel the urge to learn some Spanish.

I don't really play video games but I do artsy things like gfx (photoshop) and video editing and photography. In terms of sports I mostly just do track/cross country. I play clarinet and like school, specifically arts and science. I think I might be pretty well rounded...

Oh also making money online on forums like HF or LF
