I collect rocks/minerals, shells and fossils. I am a SCUBA diver (with an interest in marine photography and archaeology, particularly 17th century Caribbean marine archaeology.. [yes, I do mean pirates]). I own firearms, a bow and a collection of swords and knives. I enjoy camping, hiking and backpacking, road trips, bouldering, spelunking (though I prefer caves that don't involve much contorting myself to squeeze through gaps, the feeling of getting stuck is the one thing that triggers claustrophobia for me), fishing, hunting, archery and target shooting. I would like to get into whitewater kayaking, rafting or canoeing (I have experience with whitewater canoeing), off-roading, falconry (eventually.. it is a huge commitment), mountain biking and paintball/airsoft.
I have been described as what hipsters strive to emulate but are able to turn off when they need to fit in to go to work. Without being able to read the mind of the person that said that, I can assume that they meant I am my own special kind of weird. I don't think that comment was in reference to this specifically, but I am also somewhat socially awkward, likely having to do with my social anxiety which for anyone not familiar with it (and since it can be caused by multiple things), is somewhat similar to having gotten PTSD from severe bullying (at least in my case).
I am an outspoken Atheist and Gender Egalitarian and I prefer to distance myself from people who's views do not change given new information. I make a habit of criticizing religion and certain forms of Feminism as being utterly ridiculous and harmful. If you have ever spent any time on Tumblr you probably have some idea what I am talking about. I should also mention that I dislike the very concept of political correctness and feel it is harmful to the principles of free speech.
I would say that I am mostly left leaning/libertarian (with the exception of libertarian economics).
