Excellent point, Steve. I also like to pick things up just for a little while to learn and have the experience. I spent some time learning sleight of hand card tricks (3 months), became a certified hypnotherapist (about 6 months), and had a MMA fight (about 15 months of training). Hell, I even spent more than a year learning to pick up girls.
In the future, I also plan on doing some standup comedy, traveling the world and start mountain climbing.
Though none of those things are likely going to important to me for the rest of my life, it was fun doing them. I concur: it's called having a life.
