What is something you do that makes you genuinely happy?

I want to know what makes you happy. An activity or something of that sort. Something you always look forward to and that you could see yourself doing all the time. If this thing is NOT your job, then I am curious to find out your reasoning of why it is not. I'll read and respond to all answers. I'm a 18 year old kid about to go into college and responding would really help me out. Thanks.

    May 3 2013: For me, happiness is knowing who I am and being that.
    • May 5 2013: I fully agree. It is excellent answer. But who I really am?
    • May 5 2013: The man is happy, when is acting according to whom he is. Therefore getting to know oneself is a condition of happiness.

        • May 5 2013: All right. But these are two different issues: who am I and how to become oneself. Your reply regards rather the second issue.
