"Passion" to me is an empty word that I put as a standard feature on CV's. As much as I like, for example, playing guitar, I'm not sure I would say that I'm "passionate" about playing. I can think of instances where I would become bored of the guitar, at least for a certain time. I would not say that "music is my life", although I'm sure a lot of people would (and do).

Same applies to my university course. When I was writing my uni application, the co-ordinator kept telling us how important it is to convey your passion about the subject. I was under the impression that you had to absolutely cream your jeans at the slightest mention of your area of interest to even stand a chance of getting a place at university. I can't really say I feel this way about studying.

Can any of you say that you are truly PASSIONATE about something?

Aye, silly words are silly. They make you sound too enthusiastic and over-willing to do this and that.

I'd just love to be honest and say something like, "I do love a good shit in the morning before watching some cartoons."

Guitar playing and getting into MI and furthering my music career from there. So music would be my passion.

I'm fairly obsessive about music and take it very very seriously, so i'd probably say I am passionate about it. I'll hopefully get to the point where i'm passionate about philanthropy, but i'm a poor 17 year old so that's much chance of that at the moment.

i think everyone gets bored with the things they love once in a while, just go try something else for a little bit and you'll love it the same when you come back to it.

Travelling and women I guess.

It's not that I had a feeling which is now gone. It's something I could never relate to.

I could never practice guitar 10 hours a day. That would be a chore, and I'd quickly start to hate it. It would become a part of the obligatory daily routine that I was using the guitar to trying to get away from in the first place.

I'm truly passionate about playing guitar, making music, listening to music and engulfing myself in music.

Also, family, friends and maybe some political views. Also I'm slightly passionate about food.
#24
There's nothing that I'm passionate about all the time, but there's always that day/hour/5 minutes when something is just amazing and makes me love life.

the groove and the family o mine.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
