Name? Birthday?....Hobbies?

"What's your favorite hobby?"

I hate this question. Mostly because I have waaaaaay too many and choosing one is nearly impossible. However, teachers tend to love this question, especially on the first day of classes. People usually stick to the cookie cutter answers and frankly I don't blame them, I do it too. My real hobbies are a little strange...for example, I like to create things -- meaning I take whatever is lying around the house (aka trash, toilet paper rolls, bits of paper, boxes etc) and make things. Or, another hobby, cutting out words from a magazine and making a collage...or I collect coins...or my signature hobby you could say, is learning about wolves....but I could go on and on...and on and on and on.

Today in class I just said photography.

But this got me to thinking about those Myspace Surveys people used to do back in the day. I loved them! Most people hated them. But I thought it was a great way to get to know someone. Plus, I just like to fill out surveys. Or forms, or even those slips of paper that are in between magazine pages that you're supposed to mail in...I would fill those out and not mail them. I guess that's another one of my strange hobbies.

But anyways, I've decided that no matter how outdated Myspace is now, I'm going to do a survey right here for this blog post. :)
I got most of these questions from a collection of actual myspace surveys.
So enjoy! or ignore if you were one of those people who hated these things.
