Anyone who’s hung out with me for more than about five minutes knows I have a hojillion different hobbies/interests/whatever. I’m one of those people who starts new projects and activities the way some people start new rolls of paper towels.
For example, here is a list of the various classes/hobbies/activities I am actively (as in, within the last few weeks) doing:
- web design
- blogging (here and at The Book Roadie)
- movie reviewing
- 52 Weeks to Awesome
- Profitable Idealism
- MorningStar Mystery School (where I am not only in THREE different courses but am also the communication coordinator AND accounts receivable for an upcoming retreat)
- Shiva Nata
- The Kitchen Table
And I KNOW I am leaving things out. Plus there are all the things I don’t really consider hobbies — keeping up with various social media sites (Facebook and Twitter especially), staying in touch with friends and family as best I can (hah), and so on.
Turns out, there’s a word for this — for getting into lots and lots of things rather than getting to be an expert in one thing: Scanner. I’m a Scanner! Sweet.
I like having words for things. I mean, I’ve always been interested in linguistics and language…
