    Yup! You read that right, time for Random Kat Asks!

    Today we're going outside of video games with the following question:

    What is your favorite thing to do (hobby, sport, job?[for the crazy ones that love their jobs!]) outside of gaming or video games?

    My favorite thing to do: Cooking, specifically baking. Planning a Red Velvet Cake with White Chocolate Buttercream Icing for sometime this weekend :p and possibly smoking a pork shoulder or maybe a couple chickens since hubby got a new smoker for Christmas and OMG it cooks amazingly!!!

    Road trips. Packing up the car and going somewhere, doesn't matter where. Mmmm, coffee from Pilot or Love's.

    Also a big road trip fan. Prefer it to flying for holidays. The sense of freedom and exploration that comes with it still gets me a bit giddy!

    But more frequent pleasure for me comes from a long ride on the bike (push-bike).

    No idea how you learned to love cooking. My partner loves to cook too. Takes pictures of every meal.. When she's off visiting family I live off pizza and hummus dips. No messing around in the kitchen at all!

    Cooking was a close second for me. I love cooking for my wife. Going to do a beef roast in the crock pot tomorrow, with golden russet potatoes and baby carrots :)

    All time favorite hobby (other than gaming) is exercise specifically resistance training. I've been a gym nut since I was little haha.

    This one will forever brand me a nerd if I wasn't already, but I also love statistics and learning new applications of statistics. It's like solving mysteries and explaining things with numbers, so cool haha

    In no particular order....

    Read
    Tinker with my computers
    Debate whether or not to buy some books to learn Japanese (yeah, I really do spend way too much time debating that)
    Surf Amazon and look at things I want and cannot afford
    Spend time with my couple of close friends

    Any particular suggestions on resources for studying Japanese and kendo?

    Writing and drawing. I do both in my past time, and though I rarely get around to do as much as I'd like, I'm getting better at it ^^

    Also watching TV with my husband. We're so very much alike and enjoy the same things, so it's always just extremely nice to cuddle up to him and watch a good show.

    It matters what you want to study, I am taking classes for the general and spoken side of Japanese. And on my free time I study Kanji, and vocabulary to be able to read. For Kanji studying I like to use a book that I got off amazon called "Essential Kanji" written by P.G. O'Neill. It's a very good book for reference, and it also does a good job going over 2000 Kanjis used standard in the Japanese language. I also like to use flashcards for on the go studying.

    For Kendo, you might have to look around your town for a club or an actual dojo. For me I joined a club at college. But if there is a way for you to get into a Kendo group of some sorts, it is a very fun experience.
