Think of the two things you enjoy the most. How did you become interested in them?

By reading. I don't think that's what the right one was for but oh well.

My wife? We were the only two to volunteer to take the "wrong" side of the geo- vs. helio-centric debate...and we won. I knew right away she was something special. My son? He came out of my wife's hoo-hah. How freaking amazing is that? I just can't

Jewelry - My mom had a Time-Life series, one of which was "Gemstones." I loved that book before I could read it.

Photoshop - I live across the street from a college and wanted to fill my schedule. I figured I'd give it a shot. It was brilliant.

I think, though, that it was learning about creativity - what it is and what it isn't - that allowed me to fully embrace those as viable things to do. I had felt like I had to do something "serious" because what I loved wasn't valuable.

Politics-I had a really good government teacher in HS.
Gardening-I needed something to reduce stress while in college (and an escape from politics).

Well, I was introduced to eating and sleeping at an early age. I really give all the credit to my parents for this passion, and I'm thankful for all of the opportunities I've been given to develop my skills.

My 2 favorite things are very hard to narrow down,especially by enjoyment,so I'll narrow it out by the frequency with which I use them.Number one is trying to fathom life in general,it's purpose,philosophies,and meaningless point of our seriousness

I was always a deep thinker, rather curious child, but the moment I accidentally saw a clip on a philosophy on life by Alan watts I was hooked on the subject.

My mother was not much of a baker so I started doing that at home. Listening to folk songs led me to writing poems.

I can't think of just two things I enjoy the most, I tend to cycle through phases of obsessions with my hobbies, but I became interested in all of them the same way. By trying them. If you get a chance to try something new, you should.

History: 9th grade World History and AP European History pushed me over the edge.
Religious studies: that was the best part of history!

Cooking- I always loved being in the kitchen with my mom and seeing what we could create.

Reading- everyone in my family always had a book. The people around me enjoyed reading, took me to the library, & read to me frequently.

I became interested in horses as little girl, mostly from my mother, but also from books I read.
When I got into high school, I really fell in love with science. I just had the best biology teacher, and he inspired me to keep learning.

Sleeping and eating? I kind of had to do them to survive.

I got into video games when I got a Playstation for my birthday. I got into the Internet when I was trying to do something for school and accidentally stumbled upon a new site called YouTube

Geology: by being outside and wanting to know why there are mountains there and rivers here, etc.

Photography: my mom and grandmother, it's in my blood!
