I'm pretty good at building forts out of books I don't have room for on my bookshelves.
I went to school for film and English, which seemed like a great idea at the time.
If I get overly enthusiastic about something in a conversation, I will apologize when my rant ends 10 minutes later.
Avoiding the comment section.
Waiting patiently for records to arrive in the mail. (Ugh. Yeah, I know. But I'm not sure I get the cassette resurgence. Please explain if you are into that.)
Teaching myself musical instruments.
I'm also really good at sitting through bad movies and tv shows and then wondering why I have no time to do the things I want.
Or that I listen to The Smiths a lot.
When you think about it, they are basically the same thing.

I'm not sure if destroying the theory of relativity and time travel is either a case of monster ego or extremely low self-esteem.
The advantage to being close to the city again is being able to see way more bands when they come to town. I used to go to shows multiple times a week, but that slowed down, and now I am looking to go see as many as possible. That's not isolated to Fridays, but I think it is in the spirit of the question. And if it isn't, then I misread the subtext.
Any of that stuff. I'm really not as much of an asshole as I seem.
