Do you have a special hobby, fixation, or obsession? What is it? Have you been preoccupied just for today, the last few months, or your whole life?

My biggest one right now would have to be 'Happy Tree Friends'. I also really like 'Charlie and Lola', skunks, and houses.

If it is possible for research itself to be an obsession then that is number one for me. I will hardly spend more than 5 dollars or an hour on something that i have not looked up and read about to my satisfaction. Planning comes along right after. I am new to understanding all this so maybe these are just inherent to the AS?

Other than that visual aesthetics and anything i can do on computer software.
