Friends have disappeared after college. Neighbors always keep to themselves. I have no co workers to talk to because voice acting is currently my full time (I wish it wasn't). So that pretty much throws being sociable in my free time out the window. Doesn't bother me.
I cook. I clean the house. I do battle with the seemingly always-tangling cables at the back of my desk. I hoard speakers and integrate them into my setup.
But most of the time, I just lay back and listen to some songs.
DESTROY HIM! YOU CAN SAVE US! DESTROY HIM! YOU'RE OUR ONLY HOPE!
Lots of talk of Overwatch here...I recently started learning it and oh man I can see why it gets addicting. My girl so far is Sombra =)
Gotta love that Sombra! They're also buffing her Hack time so it takes a little less time to do it (for upcoming patch)
As for free time, It's clutter with Gaming that's either Overwatch or Love Live SIF lol Trying to start some 'Tales' games. Also I'm trying to use more time to write and practice/audition instead of my true free time love, Youtube lol (need to use Netflix and Funimation more tbh lol)

I love playing games that are beyond strange like illbleed, killer 7, rule of rose, and stuff like koun. it's these's kind of games that get my writers block cleared up and have been working on this comic/manga for almost 2 years now!
My cousin show me this series on newgrounds called " Tome " and it became like a heavy influence to me with how fun and bright the characters are.
That I started to begin to do animation voice acting! and just try to wirte up my very own fun little characters
But beside that I just love doing little project here n there from translation something from Japanese to English! To just messing around in the twitter realm
Well, if i don't do machinima: Gaming, listening to heavy metal, graphics designing ( i am a graphics designer, afterall) ,stroaking my beard while pondering on one thing or another, doing "other things", chatting, going for a beer, looking at pictures of cool chopper bikes, admiring weapons, playing patriotic American music (And being patriotic toward the good US of A, sleeping, arm wrestling, lifting weights, watching youtube videos, watching let's play videos, watch horror movies (i love a good story =P)...ect.
Let's see... in my spare time I'm mostly playing with my cat or watching Parks and Recreation which seems to always be on in the background.
Right now I'm playing through Horizon Zero Dawn on the PS4, and reading Amy Poehler's Yes Please so from that it's mostly gaming and reading (comics, manga, nonfiction, etc.) or watching shows on Netflix (Parks and Recreation, The Walking Dead, Gilmore Girls, Luther to name a few..). I'm also very big into fitness and healthy living so I work out almost every day and have gotten into bullet journaling recently which is great!! It's too cold to go on adventures outside but when it's not I try to go out and do stuff. That sounds so random, and vague. Wow. I used to study Japanese but don't really have the time for that anymore..
I'm very much a home body so unless I'm in Ireland visiting my boyfriend and his family or he is here I am 90% of the time in my house doing something.
Because every little girl dreams of being a voice actor --- right?
MARKIPLIER YAS. xD I met him years ago at Pax East and he is seriously one of the nicest humans on the planet.
Oh my gosh, you met senpai! XD (I'm not-so-secretly aspiring to one day voice act in a video game he lets plays. I would fangirl so hard.)
Hahaha I did but it was a long while ago. I remember I was wearing a cat ear headband and I nearly poked his eye out, I was like, "It's a good thing you wear glasses!" Because you know I was trying to live up to his funny standards. >_> But seriously if you ever get the chance to meet him don't pass it up. He is very humble and genuinely kind and sincere. It's something I'll never forget.
ps. I also wish to be in a game he plays someday.

I have three kids, so I don't have a ton of free time. That being said:
Gaming with the kids. Though this is on a back burner because of school. Building microphones. Mostly for nature recording. I've only built one voice mic. Field recording. Almost exclusively stereo ambient recordings of natural soundscapes using the aforementioned microphones. Photography. I mostly do landscapes and used to do aerial landscapes, but recently started into portraiture. It's another world. Writing. Tech writing, mostly, but I'm trying to learn short fiction. Home shop machining. Used to be its own thing, but now it's mostly in support of other hobbies. Cooking. One of my favorite creative outlets.
And now I spend my free time learning as much as I can about voice acting!

I am a total dork.
I play video games in my spare time. Like A LOT. Most of my consoles are Nintendo starting from Super Nintendo all the way up to the Wii-U (planning to get the Switch sometime soon). I do have a Sega Genesis that actually still works surprisingly. I had a Game Boy Color and got portable Nintendo consoles up to the 3DS. Now I have a Steam. I mostly love Adventure type games like Legend of Zelda and Skyrim, though I also love the occasional RPGs. Fire Emblem is my favorite series of all because it feels like a game of chess with a story line to it. Mega Man and Sonic The Hedgehog are my other favorites because I enjoyed playing them while growing up.
I like to read manga. I especially like to check manga out at my local library and read up on a series that I liked. Right now, I'm currently reading one of the Hunter x Hunter books. Haven't been watching much anime these days except for the ones that get broadcasted on Toonami.
I like to sketch and draw. Sometimes when I'm at work and business starts to get slow and boring up to the point where little to no customers show up, I take a small piece of paper and do a little sketch. Sometimes it's a chibi anime me doing random things like hanging on for dear life at the top of the page or looking bored. Other times it's random characters that pop into my head that I try practice drawing such as Flowey the Flower from Undertale, Deadpool from the Marvel comics, or whatever random thought goes through my head.
