I forgot to mention that during high school and college I also spent a lot of time in musical activities. I was learning to play piano and trumpet. But most of the musical experience is singing in choirs. We traveled extensively with our high school and college choirs. We even participated in competitions. It was a good time because the group was good and we spent a long time together during the trips.

When I started working I didn't have the opportunity of joining a choir until last year. However, this year the choir dissolved. I'm not so worried since I started to study for gmat so I fill out most of the empty time with that.

My son is now 1 year and 4 months so I spend most of the time after work playing with him. I study early in the morning or late at night (if still awaken enough for that).

Anyone there loving singing, or hiking?

I like hiking, but I don't think there's any trails in the dallas area (where i'm relocating to soon :().

My hobbies are: going to the gym, running, golf, and reading as well as watching sports or other stuff on tv

I play video games on PC. I am playing Battlefield: Bad company 2 right now and its LEGENDARAY. And yeah, you guessed it right. I am a HUGE fan of The big bang theory (BBT) and How I met your Mother (HIMYM) and I love Barney and Raj.

Apart from this, I am a hollywood buff. I watch like 5 movies a week.

And no, no physical work for me. No sports as of now. But I am into playing carrom at work and pool with ma gang on weekends. Bar hopping: yes. Getting lucky with girls: no.

I used to be a huge video game fan! I even had the Virtual Boy and Neo-Geo.

Did you pay attention to this year's E3 convention? I thought Nintendo's 3DS was very interesting. Microsoft's Kinect also looks promising, at least in the long term. That's where I see the gaming industry in the next 10 years or so: 3-D and controller-less movement.

What do you think?

i actually think both PS3's motion and Microsoft's Kinetic will fail horribly - Kinetic might fail more. The problem with Kinetic imo is that any game where feedback is vital -racing, shooters,adventures etc. will suffer since every action/frame counts. I do see the potential in "party games" but anything with prolonged play like racing or shooters will be incredibly awkward. If I want to spend that much energy playing games I might as well go to the gym... Sure Kinetic could introduce controllers but that would end up being a PS3 Motion. PS3 motion might be OK but it wont be as successful as the wii just because it is an accessory.

The main reason I believe both will fail is the controllers are both "accessories". Some people might shell out 100$ to try the neat tech but if it is not mandatory I bet most will just stick with their old controllers. I actually hate the Wii controllers very much - i always try to use the D pad whenever I can :p.

The 3DS is nice but i am wondering how bad it will be to the eyes - the handhelds are already bad for the eyes...

Agreed! Kinect could be a disaster if they don't fix some bugs. Am I the only one who noticed that the Star Wars game was pre-recorded? The guy playing it made movements AFTER the on-screen character in multiple spots!

I enjoy playing soccer and right now I'm in heaven watching the World Cup games. Especially since the Netherlands has made it to the final 4 :-D (I'm half Dutch)

I also really enjoy dancing (mainly salsa) and reading. Other than that, I run, go to the gym, bike, hike, play tennis.

Favorite TV show is NCIS, although I have unfortunately recently become addicted to The Bachelorette. It's awful, really, but now that I've started watching, I can't stop. :oops:

TV Sitcoms and the Internet. I sometimes spend afternoons just surfing what have you in the Internet - before you know it, the whole day is done. Love 30 Rock, Modern Family and any Chris Lilley comedies (Summer Heights High and We Can Be Heroes)! Waiting for the next Lilley.

Studying for languages is another passion - know 2 languages fluently, 1 advanced and 3 beginner. Just love it. Cuisine is another interest - fair pastry chef. Would love to take formal classes but consulting demands hours (not to mention classes are expensive).

My Dwight Favourite is "Dwight Schrute's perfect crime" :twisted:

Dwight Schrute: What is my perfect crime? I break into Tiffany's at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No. I go for the chandelier; it's priceless. As I'm taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It's her father's business. She's Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico but I go to Canada. I don't trust her. Besides, I love the cold. Thirty years later I get a postcard. I have a son. And he's the Chief of Police. This is where the story gets interesting: I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris by the Trocadero. She's been waiting for me all these years. She's never taken another lover. I don't care. I don't show up. I go to Berlin. That's where I stashed the chandelier.

I like playing squash and going to Greece.

Playing squash in Greece would be like putting in 75 cents in a vending machine that has a bag of skittles in an auspicious angle, shaking the machine while no one is looking, and snatching two bags of skittles.

I also enjoy prepping for the LSAT
