When a geek starts a new activity

Normal people start a new activity so they can meet new people. When I start a new activity I get so obsessed and absorbed by the activity that it becomes yet another brick in the wall. Let me clarify, I do not become competitive, I just intensely geek out by trying to master the new art and possibly take it to a whole new level. And that creates the need to start yet another new activity to diversify my social circle and the vicious cycle continues.
