    Well I'm 17 and realized I don't do a dang thing with my life besides school, work and xbox. I'm trying to find a hobby for my spare time. Any suggestions?

    Mountain biking, road biking, trail running, orienteering, community orchestra. That's just a few of mine. But given your age I would forget about "hobbies" per se, and learn a trade. You could do worse than volunteering at an automotive or bike shop and working your way up to paid position as mechanic. Lose the Xbox....yesterday. Its as bad a meth as a life waster.

    buy a cheap used 2 stroke dirt bike, cheap and easy to maintain and a whole lot of fun. this of course depends on your location and ability to ride. started riding when I was 20 (a late bloomer) would trade my taco in before I got rid of my bike.

    Bilsteins front and rear, front set to 1'' and rear are 9'' 5125's, OMD springs in the rear, CSJumper LED's inside, hard wired inverter.
    this, buy a quad or dirt bike for cheap on craigslist and learn how to fix it and maintain it, you'll learn and it will eat up a good amount of time.

    I shoot almost every weekend. Maybe get a Ruger 10/22 when you turn 18 and learn to shoot. 22 LR ammo is cheap and you can do all kinds of mods to a 10/22. You might also consider volunteering a couple hours a week at a food bank or something if you're thinking of college. Looks good on the application.
