In the category of useless formal education, I have one degree in biology and a graphic design degree as well. I don't really use either of them in my current occupations.
I love travelling and reading but lately haven't been doing enough of either. I swim a decent amount and cycle (my bike is my car and I am attached to it in a way that borders on obsessive) but I'm not a fitness freak. I love fruits and vegetables and am happy to be living in a country that has particularly delicious ones. I generally tend to like healthy foods but so far have not been in imminent danger of becoming vegetarian, owing to the fact that I like meat and chicken too much.
