    This forum, on it's busy days, eespecially when opinions on controversal topics are flying back and forth.


    Piano, because there are a myriad of ways to play it

    Singing, for the above reason

    Reading, because I get sucked into the author's world

    Teching myself ASL songs because they are beautiful to witness, but even more awesome to do yourself

    They all have an enthralling/entrancing quality about them for me. It gets my brain excited, yet puts me in a physically serene state.

    Animals, kids, ma boyfriend, my friends, work, good book, writing, this forum, music,...

    Because they are all opportunities for learning which is my main motivator in life. Every oportunity to learn and find out something new can hold my interest for a long enough time.
