@FutureDrAtkins:  I love that! Weird, but I love it! πŸ™‚

@LorensAngel:  I’m obsessed with all things forensics as well as death for some reason. I’m petrified of dying (mostly the process – the pain, fear as it’s happening, etc), however I’m very interested in bodies after death – as in The Body Farm (there are several in the US). I’d love to go study at one of those places. Also, I considered going to mortuary school. It’s always fascinated me. People hear this about me and I get very interesting looks from them. πŸ˜‰

@penguinbee:  

I found a pole dancing class & was intrigued! I would love to do that but I’m too shy :-/

@btothez:  

calligraphy is gorgeous! Dh gave me a set of those pens & I gave it a shot but it is haaaard. I mean it would take me forever to write one letter so I’m impressed at people who write it as easily as I write chicken scratch.

I love decorating cakes πŸ™‚ . I get so excited! Two careers I’d love to have (or at least i think I would) pastry chef, & forensic pathologist but I’m indecisive.

Candle making! I love candles but was sick of spending $8-10 on each one, so I tried making my own and have stuck with it. Not only does it save me a ton of money, but it’s really relaxing. 

And it’s funny to see other Bees are obsessed with murder/crime shows! Fiance and my entire family make fun of me (and think I’m slightly crazy) and I honestly can’t explain why I love them so much, but I do.

@btothez:  I love knitting too! I have never met a young person who likes to knit. I learned when I was 16 and all my friends thought it was so weird. I’m currently working on making Christmas stockings!

I am a rock and metal fan. My favorite band of all time is AC/DC and my favorite of the moment is Here Comes the Kraken. My music preference usually surprises people at first. I’ve been told that I “seem like” I would listen to Britney Spears or Katy Perry, which I find incredibly insulting lol.

I am a Trekkie.

I am really into Forensic Psychology and I read a lot about serial killers, cults, human trafficking, etc. I don’t really tell people about that though, because it tends to freak them out which I totally understand. It’s not very pleasant conversation. I used to work in a prison, which is where I got interested in learning about the criminal mind. However since my husband started working away from home a lot I’ve stepped away from this research quite a bit, because I get freaked out reading about it when I’m home alone lol.

I love writing manuals.

Greek mythology.

@LorensAngel:  Obsessively researching random things…

I also enjoy reading about and researching serial killers.

And I like playing board games, but that’s not really a surprise, I’m sure. πŸ™‚

@penguinbee:  I take pole too!  I don’t post on FB about it much because I have professional contacts on my page (my friends from class post like, videos of competitions and stuff, but never of ourselves), but a lot of folks I work with know about it, and the looks I get when I first tell people are priceless.

I also shoot and take boxing classes. I can punch harder and faster than a lot of men I know, and I’m a better shot than a lot of the guys at the range. 

And I crochet.

Well I’m pretty open about my hobbies. The only semi hidden one is that I crochet. I also take ballroom dance lessons (started with Darling Husband before the wedding and we liked it so we’re still doing it) and I was taking horseback riding lessons prior to getting in a car accident in which I broke my arm and totalled my car. 6 months of rehab, plus having to buy a new car plus a wedding meant horseback riding got put on the back burner, but I’m hoping to start again when we get back from our honeymoon in a few weeks!

Oh and I’m under 30 Wink

I collect orchids, lol. I don’t think anyone would look at me and be like, “Hey that chick totally has a collection of like 15 orchids under growing lights in the corner of her living room.”

I also target shoot at the gun range, which given my geographic location, would probably put most people off. But I don’t care, I’m pretty good with rifles (and suck at all handguns except my revolver), hahaha! πŸ˜›

And I freaking LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE SPACE!!! Anything related to astronomy, astrophysics, geology (like the geologic makeup of the solar system, universe, formation of stars, planets, asteroids), particle theory, whatever. Freaking LOVE IT!!! I am soooooooo stoked for the remake of Cosmos with NDT I could cry!!

ETA: I’m also an archaeologist. I don’t think anyone would know that by looking at me. My day job is me at a desk in a professional environment, soooo…
