What's your quirky hobby that makes people look at you in a weird way but you won't stop because it's just so much fun?

I collect my random thoughts about math and fantasy into a text file where I'm not sure where math ends and where fantasy begins.
I try to add a narrative to every single math book I've read, I especially like taking note of the sequence of ideas being introduced.
Every concept that appears in a math book and the order in which they appear are important to me. They are like characters in a story, they interact with each other, who are the protagonists, who are the antagonists, whose story is being told, are all the choices made by the authors.
So you see, if you want to write about compactness in metric space, if you use open sets as the protagonist, you have the typical Analysis book, if you use sequences of real numbers, you have a different book (about the same thing, but different story, of different characters). Most math books I've read so far aren't about fighting baddies to save the world, but more like Whale hunting in a vast ocean of infinite depth.
