What are you guys passionate about? - February 12th 2017, 11:47 PM

I like drawing and writing well enough, but I've never really written before, and it'll be a long time before my art can be considered good. I thought that it would be helpful to know what else people are passionate about, be it a subject in school, an art form, or a cause, to find out what else I could do to accomplish something significant.

I'm really passionate about English and Literature. I've loved them for a while now and have always loved to pick a new book and spend hours reading.

I'm also super passionate about helping others, whether that be here on TeenHelp, in my life, or by teaching (Which is what I'm studying for right now, in addition to English too!)

I'm passionate about public health and social justice. I'm passionate about vaccines. I am passionate about helping people.

I think this is a good idea because it can help you get ideas for yourself or ask questions to those who have similar interests, such as art.

Drawing, mainly as a hobby, and studying the human body! There's plenty of people who'd like to be a doctor or a radiologist, sure, but someone has to tend to the dead! I'd like to be an intern in a morgue one day..

My mom's colleague's daughter actually is a mortician and she loves it! From what I heard from my mom, her daughter actually went to school for nursing and law first and didn't like either of those, and then became a mortician. I wish I had the money for that much schooling, because education is another passion of mine I forgot to mention. Regardless, it goes to show that finding yourself can take time and passions can change, but it's all worth it.

Education in general, as well as emotional wellbeing and mental health and helping others. Maybe a bit of psychology too. There's probably other things but I can't think of the words right now

I'm passionate about people, even though some can be irritating and annoying! I love listening to them and learning about them, especially ones with a lot of life to talk about like the elderly! Which is why I volunteer, because I get to hear them speak about things. I'm also passionate about learning, I love knowing things and I love education! And I'm passionate about making a difference on a small level by helping people when they need it.

My interest is Math, programming and music. I wish I can help others more with my strengths above so that I feel more valuable than being not smart at anything else..


Do my best at everything I can to live a happy, perfect life.

Happy life won't come by being happy everyday. Struggle and always work hard.

Forgive other's imperfection, they will work hard about it once I point it out to them, just like what I should be doing.

On the other hand, never tolerate with my own mediocrity. Never slack and always strive improvement.

Never settle. Never give up.

Honestly, my passions are in video games. I used to play semi-professionally when I was younger, and wish I continued that path but I feared it would have a negative impact on my life.

I settled into programming, maths, and sciences because if I have to have a career I'd prefer it'd be in one of those fields. I don't want to program games, though. Coincidentally, I think I like tutoring and teaching the most. I wish said fields were more stable in the states. But unfortunately, you work a lot of hours for no pay. And the jobs are very volatile, unlike other developed countries.

Music, more than anything else, it's a medium that conveys emotions and mental states like nothing else will ever be able to.

Philosophy and psychology. They're different but quite closely connected. Humans are fascinating, in more than one way.

Science in general. Pretty much any branch you can think of I know something about.

English language and foreign languages in general.


The risk I took was calculated, but boy, am I bad at math.

Psychology, education, learning, mental health awareness, transgender rights, equality/equity in general, and helping people. That's the short list.

There is nothing pretty about damage, about pain, about heartache.

against every odd that is stacked against them.” — Nikita Gill

Physical health, mental health, writing, and research (as a hobby, not so much professional). I might also write a book someday.

I love both of these passions! I never would have thought about hot chocolate, but that one's pretty amazing too.

Music! I can't express how important it is to me and my life - I play several instruments, and in every piece I hear I find some emotion inside me. I know that if I feel any kind of mood there will be a song or some music to suit that. And although not everyone likes the music I'm into, I will stick to it and keep loving it no matter what they say (because it's the best )

I've been eying this thread for a while now, thought I wouldn't post because I'm bad at these kinds of questions. Then I was entertaining the idea of starting a blog (as in a different one from TH) and I asked myself what am I passionate about? Because why start a blog if you're not even remotely passionate about something so here it goes but I just feel better by saying "this is subject to change" because I'm so bad at these things that I have to make a disclaimer like that lol

Okay so...
Expressive arts of all kinds-music, visual art, dance, theater, arts and crafts, mixed media, writing, poetry , storytelling, puppetry, movies, doll making, dollhouse makingetc
Child development, youth development, human development
Community wellness, healing, and ultimately flourishing
Social justice, economic justice, social change, human rights
Nature!
Education, mental health, recreational
Urban design, architecture, built geographic spaces, sustainability, public health
Sociology
Any social science pretty much
Literature although I definitely have to read more
Alternative kinds of things and holistic approaches
I am a huge play and recess advocate
Play therapy, creative arts therapy, Eco spirituality, healing through mind, body, spirit, soul both individually and collectively
Spirituality
Feng shi lol if my dad would budge and let me move furniture around xD
Some sports-biking, badminton, ice skating, inline skating and chess
Cats
More cats
A hundred more cats
Animal rights...and cats. Wild ones, domesticated ones, big eared ones, small rat-like ones, fluffy ones. Everything cats!
Reading and literacy, learning, supporting learning spaces and inclusivity
Books :3
Homeschooling, unschooling, gentle parenting
Gardening, gardens, treehouses, hiking in the woods, growing basil and other herbs in my apartment
Connecting generations and bringing them together. Because elderly people are often pushed to the sidelines in western society. Bringing back the elderly people as valuable to society!
Fostering empathy and emotional development, bringing people together and fighting isolation
Learning itself, learning new things.
Also I want to open a cat cafe that also has a library and kids can read to the cats because cats don't judge <3

I'm passionate about humans, their physical abilities and psychological multidimensionality; about fantasy, which is basically my whole world. I indulge in all kinds of fantasy books, animes/mangas, rpg/larp games. Drawing & writing fantasy.
