    Hm...

    My family.

    Social policy and politics, particularly sustainable development, universal healthcare, and more broadly, social justice.

    Science and medicine, particularly biology/biochemistry/neurobiology, neurodegeneration, and protein aggregation.

    Travel, anywhere and everywhere, particularly if it's to do something productive.

    Reading good books and writing little scraps of things.

    Vegetarian cuisine from any culture.

    Excessive amounts of coffee.

    And just for fun: chess sets, old maps, old books, and old coins.

    This is a question I have been asking myself in the last few weeks. I have the answer and it is not pretty. Nothing in my life right now I am passionate about. :eek:

    How about your avatar? Just do it. Take up running, a sport, a genre for books?

    2D game development and the intricate creation of every bit of raw material that goes into them.

    Martial Arts
    Weapons
    Technology
    Books (I do enjoy non-fiction quite a bit, but in particular fantasy is a favorite - a weakness of mine from way back in the seventh grade :eek: )
    Video games? A little bit, I guess.. I enjoy them quite a bit sometimes

    Not in order, but martial arts does come first.

    In no particular order:

    Faith (sometimes, its important to me, but its kind of an up and down thing for me:p)
    Friends
    Family
    Hot women :cool:
    Travel
    Outdoor activities
    Weight lifting (to a degree - not sure it reaches the level of "passion" but its pretty important to me :))

    I enjoy computers and technology too, but its definitely not a "passion."

    Apple
    Music (Listening, Writing, Recording and Playing my guitars)
    Guitars (I have about 5 now - and two of my side projects are to upgrade one of them, and fix a completely broken one that I got last week)
    MovieMaking
    Stop Motion Animating

    I think those are pretty productive passions for a 15 year old, if I say so myself! (as opposed to binge drinking, going to dance clubs and being a general pain in the neck to society :p)
