10 things that captivated my interest for a while (and some that still do)
1. US History
When I was a teenager, I would go to the cinémathèque in Brussels all the time.
6. Joke writing
I used to be obsessed with Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, etc. I'm not into the whole anti-theism thing anymore though (but I still love Sam Harris!)
Before I became a bit of an anti-theist (which, again, I'm not anymore), I got interested in Islam because an online friend was kind of trying to convert me (he says he didn't, but looking back, it looked like that a little!). I remember thinking "well who knows, maybe I'll be a Muslim one day, it would be awkward to tell my parents but it's plausible." It turned out that learning about Islam is what propelled me into anti-theism.
