A friend asked me this Formspring question ages ago, and I am finally catching up to her:
What is your favorite past-time? What past experiences do you have good memories from?
One aspect of myself I take a lot of pride in is my acceptance of "alone time." Popularity has always been a foreign concept to me. I never experienced it in school, and with the exception of a brief college period, I quit longing for it years ago. As a result, I love spending time with family and friends. However, it also does not scare me to entertain myself.
Right after I got my license in high school, my solo recreation consisted mostly of taking long drives. I would spend an hour, sometimes several, just driving through nearby towns and countryside, with a Pretty Girls Make Graves album, or the American Graffiti soundtrack playing. I loved it. I explored the place I grew up in, and I also took time to reflect on my life, and where I wanted to go. Furthermore, I found odd little places I felt no one else knew about.
Now I would never take drives like that. Being more eco-conscious, I am too afraid of feeling guilty. I miss them.
