Martial arts â€“ I began Hapkido earlier this year, so Iâ€™ve already gone down this route. However, in the future Iâ€™d like to expand on this. Certainly, Hapkido will remain my base, but I want to take something additional when Iâ€™m much, much better. Iâ€™m thinking either a style which can help me improve in an area I do poorly at, or one which goes into areas that Hapkido only introduces the basics (or not at all). A weapon based art would be cool also.
Archery â€“ Iâ€™ve done no research into this, so Iâ€™m unsure whether itâ€™s realistic for me to do (money, location, etc), nor do I know what type Iâ€™ll do. Modern archery, like Mohammed does with those funky looking SPACEBOWS? Western medieval archery, using a bow you could probably (probably shouldnâ€™t) make at home? Perhaps that crazy traditional Japanese one, whose name escapes me at the moment?
Horse-riding â€“ Iâ€™m unsure as to how expensive this can be, but fortunately Scenic Hills Riding Ranch is rather close by. Oh, and combined with archery skills, I could terrorise the peasants throughout the countryside!
Instrument â€“ Either piano or violin/viola/whatever. Iâ€™d go with piano most probably, since I can easily afford a cheap keyboard to practise on. Iâ€™d hate to buy a several hundred dollar instrument, only to end up not liking it!
Cooking â€“ Seeing as I only learnt how to operate our over this year, I think this one is a given. Amy did this for her HSC, so Iâ€™m sure she can help me out.
An actual film-making course! â€“ If, many years from now, weâ€™re still doing this stuff, itâ€™s something to look into. Do they offer this sort of thing at TAFE?
Language â€“ I already have a head start in German. I havenâ€™t given much thought about this area yet.
I hope these things are of interest to my friends â€“ itâ€™s a lot easier (and more enjoyable) to do them with people you know!
