What you do outside the snuff world

GormurGormur Member
What do you do outside of snuff?  I'm mostly curious and bored while I wait for a couple of orders :)

For example, I'm a musician.  I play classical violin and I taught myself piano from a young age to be able to write music, which I still do occasionally; professionally too

I also grow Venus flytraps, but only since December so not long but I think I'm pretty good at it

    I am a bedroom dj and music producer, dnb/techno genre. Semi-profesional, mostly just for fun.

    Took a pinch of W&H and suddenly realised I wrote too little on this topic. Actually I have multiple small hobbies. From time to time I am writing a blog about various medicinal plants, collecting sci-fi and horror comic books  (e.g. The Walking Dead). Also, I was training calisthenics until the pandemic showed up, now the parks are closed so I can't work out. Anyway, can't say I am bored during this whole quarantine thing..
  • Criminal defense attorney. Rumpole.
  • I work with adults with developmental disabilities. That pays the bills and gets me health insurance. For fun, and sometimes money, I hand build acoustic guitars and some furniture. I like to cook and garden and read. I also do some handy man work for extra cash.

    @gormur I have to know more about these Venus fly traps!
  • I'm an outside machinist for a private owned commercial shipyard. If its broken, I can fix it.

    Outside work I'm currently overwhelmed with repairing the house we bought and taking care of my 3 boys. I love cooking, fishing, hunting, and anything I can do to stay clean and sober (had big problems when I was younger). This virus and the response thereof is seriously cramping my style.

    @boiledonions It's slow going, but it's fun for me.  I just have a couple outside in a special pot and soil; hoping they make it to Summer.  It's very tough to grow because you have to sort of figure out when to water them, and of course distilled water only =)

    I've been a Medical Laboratory Scientist for 25 years now.

    Outside of work, I like to rock-hound for Fire Agate and hike with the dogs.

    Most of the time, though, I'm smoking a pipe / cigar or working around the property.

    When I'm not with my wife and kids or consulting I'm out shooting

    Well.... I am retired but really enjoy reading a lot! My other activities center around Cartography and amateur photography. I have a little Nikon Coolpix, an older Nikon SLR and a Cannon EOS 60 D with regular and Telephoto Lenses. But my favorite camera is my new Leica! Just waiting for some warm weather to really put it through its paces.
    Cheers,
    Doc Holliday

    @DocHolliday Cartography fascinates me! I grew up loving to hike with a compass and a map. Do you make maps? Of the land around your home, from sailing trips, etc?

    After 20 years of not for profit leadership in the world of poverty, food insecurity, and addictions I took a new direction in teaching English to newcomers to Canada. I enjoy cooking ethnic foods, listening to the Blues, watching movies, and collecting NHL (Boston Bruins) memorabilia. I dabble in freestyle poetry and Zentangle. This is a free form style of art using fine tip markers and odd geometric forms.
  • @ben_Macm I just looked up Zentangle. Looks like the meticulous type of hobby I could get into!

    We have a pretty interesting list of professions and hobbies going here.

    If I can figure out how to post pictures, I will post some of the guitars I build and other woodworking projects.

    I am a cleaner in the food industry, power washing equipment and what not. Outside of a pay check, I am a family man, and enjoy making custom wooden sling shots as well as forging knives, mostly fixed blade, with the odd friction folder here and there.
  • I am a lawyer and was in several corporate jobs for 15 years and decided 9 months back that I want to quit it and go private. Hasn't been pretty so far (since I am in non litigation, a specialty in which private practitioners find it hard to survive) but I intend to stick with trying to be independent.

    I work at a child care facility for kids aged 5-12, it's similar to teaching but more recreation focused, so it's a lot of fun. In my free time, I play in punk and metal bands (bass guitar)

    Greetings @boiledonions ... Zentangle is a great creative artsy outlet. I have zero artistic talent, but the creations that come about from Zentangle are quite fulfilling. I take it everywhere with me. All you need is a few markers and a few pieces of 3 x 5 card stock. You can then put multiple cards together to make larger framed pieces or laminate each card for a set of pretty cool coasters......I would love to see your guitars and woodworking talents. 
  • Ben_MacMBen_MacM Member
    @Chapman ... I have always wanted a handmade, hand-forged knife. I like a smaller one with a blade that is 4-5 inches in length. I would love to see the ones you make. Do you ever sell your creations?

    I'm a therapist that provides behavioral health services to the homeless.  Outside of that I enjoy power lifting, reading, hiking, try to learn Urdu, and long walks on the beach.

    I work in an ordinary office enviroment. It is ok per se. I really like it.

    In my spare I use to go out in the woods - we own some hectar. So I use to process the firewood. We use to heaten with a big stove during winter times. So every winter there are several cubic metres of firewood going through the chimney. No fitness studio needed on my side... LOL.

    And I use to collect traditional pocket knives.
  •  I wash dishes for my livelihood.  Working on carving out a nice life for myself and my lady once she finishes nursing school and comes to America to be with me (she's Colombian.) 

      I am using Kratom and/or Kava to quit my long daily habit of drinking, and it's working.  I love mind altering drugs of all kinds, legal and illegal. I'm interested in Thelema and magick, learning spanish, reading about 
    hollow earth/ aliens/ time travel/ other dimensions and such. I am addicted to coffee. I'm a night owl who 
    stays up too late taking copious amounts of snuff and watching old tv shows (current favorite is My Favorite Alien). I am an energetic person who can't sleep if i don't get to take a long walk everyday.
