For a long time, "What do you like to do when you have free time?" is a question I like to use as a conversation starter to strangers.
More often than not they say "Sleeping", "Video games", "Watch shows", and never could they say anything else. I always find these people less interesting, but I could never really tell exactly why. I mean I have friends who do that can still be fun to hang out with, but what makes them less akin to those I find truely interesting?
Until recently I've finally found out that, someone who is truely interesting could step out the bounds of enjoying what other people created, and go out to create something that other people can enjoy.
Be it a piece of artwork, a commentary, a song, a splendid dish, a dance, anything that you can create that can be enjoyed by more than just yourself. It's easy to bash someone for doing something poorly, it isn't as easy to make something poorly so that other people can bash.
