Yo, what's good, people of Crunchyroll? I have a new topic for you today. ^^

Sometimes we find ourselves too stuck in the motions of our everyday lives, that we just don't have the time to try anything new. My question for you is: What are some of the things that you wish to try out and experience, but just don't have the time for?

Looking at it differently, you may not even have the time to do the things you already enjoy doing. What are these things?

What will it take for you to participate in these events?



The original question came to me when I was resizing this image. I'm not sure if that's a sign or not lol

For me it'll always be learning Japanese. I've wanted to for over twenty years now but due to my health issues I've never been successful at learning it when I tried. I'd also like to learn how to draw. I've had some luck when it comes to writing or even art design/architecture but for some reason I can't grasp how to draw characters (human/anthropomorphic/anime/manga).

Well I do the same thing everyday, every night I say, tomorrow will be different! But no... Probably learning another language. It seems very
Cool to know more than one , no matter what it is.

I'd like to travel more. Aside from a few school trips I haven't been to many far-off places.

I like to learn new skills and branch out from things I am already interested in.

For instance, I like creepy crawlies that people generally hate (insects, arachnids, reptiles, etc.), reading/writing, marine life, cooking, sharpening/honing blades, martial arts, table tennis, etc.

I might branch into archery, for instance, or learn to use nunchaku. I might go from cooking to learning to mix drinks, then to making tea. I might go from studying bugs to studying microbes. I might go from cooking to learning the art of slicing to learning human anatomy. Stuff like that. It's only possible because I love reading and the subjects transition into one another, so there's never a shortage of new things to learn about.

Of course, I've already branched into archery and learning to use nunchaku and mixing drinks and making tea and learning about microbes. But those are things I'm going to continue to learn about since my level of knowledge in those subjects pales in comparison to what I have in their parent branches.

Sadly, there are things I will probably never be interested in, like cars and the latest fashion and computer programming. My interests tend to be ancient and unchanging in nature. It's easier to examine something that does not move. Or something that moves as slowly as I do.

The tree will grow until I die.

Not as weird as you'd think . Some of the people I worked with at the conventions (fellow collectors/store owners/fans) were doctors, pharmacists, lawyers, police, fire fighters, sports celebs, actors/actresses (both known and aspiring), even housewives/mothers . As weird as this may sound, think of conventions as no more than big costume (optional) parties. Yes there will be some weird people but for the most part you'll see families, friends and people who share the same interests just hanging, talking and there to meet/listen to stories from celebs they've come to know and love over the years.

True. I've always wanted to go to a con and dress up as something even though I'm not THAT huge of an anime fan and I'd want to do a cosplay that's actually decent. Sadly, I don't know if this is possible with my appearance and the people I know. I guess I don't look completely terrible, but I don't resemble any character unless I wear a mask. I can probably pull off Kaiki Deishu (from Monogatari series) if I wear enough powder and grow out my hair.

I love Halloween and always have. It's so relaxing when people are in a festive mood, not being serious, and all in fanciful costumes.

I've always wanted to learn to play the piano. I'd probably never find time to do that now.

Some really cool responses. ^^

I would like to learn Japanese. I'm ashamed to be Japanese, and not know the language haha. It wasn't really necessary to be taught the language though, so I don't blame my family. People say they can learn by watching anime, but I can't. My pronunciation is great, but I just can't memorize anything other than basic words and phrases.

I would also like to go to a convention, I got into DC Comics my senior year of high school and returned to the anime world my first year of college. Probably wouldn't cosplay as a batman character, because of spandex, but I could try to cosplay as a Gintama character such as Okita or Hijikata. I'd want to try Gintoki, but I don't like wigs and would rather dye my hair. Silver is doing too much for me though.

I want to learn how to make sushi. My sister bought me a sushi making kit last year for my birthday, but I still haven't used it. I have a cousin who owns or owned his own restaurant and was the head sushi chef, so I can actually be instructed instead of reading a book, although reading the book would suffice.

Lastly, I want to go to more concerts. Asian artists are coming to America more often these days, and I have yet to take advantage of this. Even though it's usually in LA, I don't mind making the 6 to 8 hour drive.

I would like to learn Italian and Portugese, I'm just too lazy to do it. I would also like to learn how to make cocktails and other alcoholic beverages.
