Paper: Activities Which I Enjoy: From Classical Music to Being a Grease Monkey

There are a wide variety of activities which | enjoy. | suppose that | have a rather unique cultural blend of things which | enjoy, everything from listening to classical music to being a grease monkey working on the vintage cars that | collect. | am an avid music buff, so | enjoy playing a wide range of musical instruments. There are several instruments which | can play (or try to at least), but my favorite is the guitar. It has always been a wonderful source of musical expression for me, especially when | feel like writing. Music has always been an omnipresent factor in my life, so not only do | enjoy playing it, | enjoy listening to it as well whether it be by radio, album, or live at a concert. | also enjoy quite a few outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, water skiing, and fishing. | think that perhaps my attraction to most of those outdoor things comes from my love for nature. | enjoy the peaceful serenity of Upper East Tennessee and the many outdoor opportunities which it holds. | enjoy all of the state parks in our area such as Roan Mountain and | feel truly blessed to have the things in my backyard that other people drive miles to see. | feel that it would be a shame not to take full advantage of these things which we have in our area. Another thing which | get a great deal of satisfaction from; although, | also get a great deal of ridicule as well, is my fascination for antique automobiles. | am a car guru. | enjoy studying cars, | enjoy driving cars, and above all, | love restoring cars.

Nevertheless, | have managed so far to turn out three beautiful examples of Detroit s finest, and have three more underway right now. | think that above all, it is a wonderful way to vent a lot of frustration and stress. When | am working on my cars, | seem to lose myself in thought and drift away. It may be a little silly, but | suppose to each his own right? One last thing | enjoy which | want to talk about is something that above all is my favorite thing to do. Perhaps it could be said that above all else, friendships are the essence of life, or at least | feel that way. So, the thing which | most enjoy is just spending time with a few close friends. Regardless of what we are doing, it seems that we can always have a wonderful time by just being ourselves and enjoying each others company. ...
