Pick your favorite late night snack.

When you're old, how do you want to live out your golden years?

How digitally connected do you like to be?

Which scenario would be the most embarrassing to you?

You can only pick one beverage to drink for the rest of your life. What is it?

Through a strange twist of fate, you find out you were originally born into a royal family and they want you to return. What's your first move?

You've been given 24 hours of invisibility. Where do you go?

You get to pick any vehicle to take on a road trip. What is it?

You're making dinner to impress your date. What do you decide to cook?

The zombie apocalypse starts. You immediately:

Looking for Bigfoot

Looking for Bigfoot

With your love of the outdoors and your desire for adventure, you can spend your free time looking for Bigfoot. It's probably best if you never find the mythical beast, but you'll love every minute spent in the forest anyway.

Part time paparrazi

Part time paparrazi

Quick, what's Brad Pitt's middle name? John Cusack's fifth film? Chances are you can rattle this off from memory. In fact, you're better at remember details about celebrities' lives then they are themselves, which makes you a prime candidate for documenting their lives with photos. You can spend your weekends waiting outside their estates with your smart phone, uploading fuzzy pictures to your blog, and you'll love every moment.

Knitting adult onesies

Knitting adult onesies

You're quirky, sometimes feel hemmed in by expectations, and tolerate arts and crafts. Feed all aspects of your unusual nature by using a traditional hobby to make non-traditional items, and what could be better than learning to knit adult onesies? This is the perfect hobby for your contrarian self, allowing you to blend the expected with the weird and get reactions galore from those around you. "You knit what again?"

Growing carnivorous plants

Growing carnivorous plants

Sometimes dealing with people exhaust you, but that's only because you have such a tender soul that you have to protect it carefully. Send a message that your nurturing nature has a toothy edge by growing carnivorous plants. As you gently stroke and feed your baby Venus Fly Traps, others will finally understand that you're a warm and helpful person, but your boundaries are sharp and clear.

Writing the Great American novel

Writing the Great American novel

You don't mind stale coffee, being alone for hours, and looking into the deeper, darker parts of human nature - this makes writing the Great American novel your perfect pastime. In your spare hours, pour out your deepest fears and fantasies onto the printed page and enjoy every minute of scraping the depths of your soul.

Food photography

Food photography

You're already Instagramming pictures of every meal, so you might as well start a blog, a Tumblr, and a Pinterest board for your food pics too. That way, you can thrill even more people with your genius methods of styling burgers, fries and mom's Jello salad. How do you always manage to find a sprig of parsley just in time to spruce up the pic? It's a sure sign you've found your ideal hobby.

Chain saw carving

Chain saw carving

It's loud and abrasive - just like you! Chain saw carving is not for the weak or faint of heart, and your "shoot first ask questions later" nature is perfect for this hobby. You forge ahead without a second thought, creating bold art that takes up a lot of space. Take up this noisy hobby and you'll love every minute of wielding a giant dangerous machine.

Rare tea connoisseur

Rare tea connoisseur

Wine is expensive, and beer isn't classy enough for you, so becoming a tea connoisseur is the perfect way to pass the time. Your finely honed senses and propensity for showing off your knowledge lend themselves to a hobby requiring an appreciation of nuance. Take up tea tasting and you'll be able to make even the most cultured person feel inferior when you casually mention how everyone knows tea was used as a religious offering during the Western Zhou Dynasty.
