While looking for something else, I came across this interesting thread.
In fact, I have been looking for something or I wanted to start something similar.
I had 5 calls in this season and am done with all gd/pi , now waiting for results.
My hobbies :
1.Learning Greek and Latin(Vocabulary building,etymology): This is only to say. People or infact professors found it difficult to understand and none asked me anything about it.I am involved in learning stories related to evolution and emergence of "ENGLISH" words.As we all know english is not a languge it is a distillation of many languages. I just sit and read all the works of Norman Lewis, Wilfred Funk and Nurnberg etc etc.
People in my college called me a walking dictionary. I have conducted various workshops on memory techniques and how to remember and retain meanings of more and more english words.This is all about greek and latin roots.All in all, give me a word and I will narrate a story of its origin. Infact it is very interesting but people find it difficult to understand at the very first time.
2.I love to collect neck ties and cuff links:This is another hobby of mine. I have a vast collection of ties from all around the world and almost all big brands.I love to collect designer cuff links.So far, I do not get many opportunities to flaunt them
but I will definitely get some opportunities if I get in one of the good b schools
I am looking forward to know more about out of the box hobbies.
Guys go on.
Good luck to all.
