    ...? Sorry? I’m not straight. No hubby for me, and no, I’m not in the market.

    Oh, hobby!
    None. I’m not a filthy casual.

    Actually, sir, what used to be my hobby, turned into my job.
    I have never had the time to pick up another one after that. Even my reading habbits got above average, I just read other shit then most. Lots of it, so to keep my hobby/work alive.

    What makes this memorable? The stress on why?

    Programming used to be my hobby, kind of still is, but it's slowly but surely turning into my job and I fucking hate it so far. I miss having fun programming, go kinda got me going on side projects again but I doubt it's going to last (hopefully it does).

    So if we consider programming as my job, I don't have any hobbies. I'd like to buy a shit box and turn it into a track car (kind of a dream of mine, actually), but car stuff is expensive where I live and I don't have a lot of money. Hopefully I'll be able to get out of this retarded country in a few years and be able to afford a track car.

    I also wanted to learn how to draw, but I don't have time for that (work + school + side project). Hopefully in July I'll have some more time on my hands.

    Oh shit I just realized this was a question you were asked on an interview, not a question to the devrant community. My bad. Oh well, I'm not deleting my comment, it took a lil effort to write it so I'm gonna keep it.

    @AtuM
    That is the official standard answer you get from the ones that prepared by googling "interview questions best answers".

    @AtuM Pro Tip: take up something that involves teamwork and / or social responsibility.

    That's something many interviewers consider a good thing, plus, you can grab some karma and do something for the community.

    Wonder how they would have reacted to my answer: "If I had to pick one, it'd be picking."

    Guess I have to think hard if I want to reference picking in a job interview. But it is pretty much my only non-computer hobby.

    @ilPinguino maybe she kills and tortures people in the ways that were common those times. Watch out.

    @electrineer Well, that was a job these days too.

    I mean, there's a reason why folks call it the dark age.

    (then again, we could bring that back for idiotic IT managers. Talk too much shit, you get a round in the brazen bull).

    When I get a reliable source of income I'll buy an electric guitar and write digital effects on a raspi. I already started but the guitar was borrowed and the owner needed it back.

    @ilPinguino yes, in Sweden we have one in visby each year. One week long :)

    @electrineer Well we did have a device usually used to keep prisoners on display in the town square that was quite popular for photos ;)

    But I usually focus on archery.

    @electrineer Mostly for the challenge of it. I enjoy reverse-engineering their networks stacks and inner workings. Not to mention, the nostalgia of revisiting these older titles.
