    Ah man. Yeah, I thought it about it but who knows...

    Not shooting it down man. Plenty of busy people have hobbies like that. Just stating that it is more involved than people realize. Especially if you're doing all of your own work.

    Even if you aren't doing all the dirty work, just finding the parts you need to compete a build can be a time consuming challenge. Its all relative though; with deep enough pockets you can buy everything new. Depends on what you're restoring whether or not you can do that as well =)

      Fortunately, I don't really like anything that costs a lot.

      I love learning languages. Most cities have cultural centers that offer language classes. I want to take classes and get involved in organizing events if I time.

      Then travel and potentially move abroad when my debt is gone

        Paying bills on time, like before the due date and the shut off notice... that would be freaking sweet.

        Once that is in order, I don't even know what I would do with money. The times when I've ever had very much of it, I mostly didn't change anything about my lifestyle.

          Skydiving in areas more scenic than dank cornfields and out of planes larger than a PT Cruiser.

          These seem pretty damn awesome. Basically just find someplace high and jump.

            I know, I was just surprised it was a thing at all. Figured that knowledge might blow some minds in the thread.
            Very valid point. Apparently, the willow rods soften in the water allowing them to bend to form the basket, then harden afterwards. Ingenious.

              Lol. Even after making it through the grueling AFF course, flying a wingsuit in open air itself takes a lot of practice to stabilize. Gaining enough precision to navigate obstacles like that takes hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of flight time. Pro wingsuit pilot = my goals

                She makes it look easy, but with the drafts between those buildings, that's got to be like a death trap if the wind hits you just wrong.

                  Meehhh, even as an attending, I don't know that I want my pockets to be that deep but I'm glad you're shedding light on it

                    Establishing scholarships for post-bacc premed programs. And at least one full tuition medical school scholarship at the school I end up at and maybe my name on a Wing or Ward. Yep. Doubt that'll happen in primary care, but I can dream of marrying a venture capitalist, right?

                      Politics. I intend to go from activist to candidate eventually. My state representatives are part-time so I hope to juggle both.

                      I definitely want to dabble in politics when I'm not putting on my robe and wizard hat. The things I could accomplish... Ah well, one thing at a time.

                        I'd like to adopt a dog.
                        Travel in an RV like I used to with my great grand parents when I was a kid.
                        Eat at some places that have been on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
