I also have many other hobbies, some of which include; writing, photography, drawing, watching TV and movies, playing video games, listening to music, coloring, working jigsaw puzzles, working puzzle and activity books, and collecting various things. I love animals and currently have a Toy Poodle named Merveille, and a Mini Rex rabbit named Kojikaki. I have adopted most of my pets from rescue centers.
