Default How long have you been in magic?

Hey guys, so I've almost got my first year of magic under my belt, and I was wondering, how long have you guys been doing magic, or, if you're not a magician, how long have you been into your art/hobby?

i'd say 2 years sounds right, tho most of that time i've only perform a little bit( about 6 months/24) and practice a lot.

Hm...
I've been doing magic for more than five years now, but I started card magic two years ago.

Started doing magic almost exactly 6 years ago, have been active in the art for little less than 5.

As for music, piano playing in particular, it'd be my whole life, officially (with lessons) for 18 of the 22 years I've been alive.

I've been into magic since April of 2005, which makes it around... 6 and a half years. But I took a break of magic in between for around a year in my first year of university. So in total, I guess 5 and a half years.

I've been in this art for maybe around 2 or 3 years, on and off. As of now, it's something I do everyday.

I got my first magic set when I was about 5 or 6, I don't remember exactly, but I used to love to watch the Paul Daniels magic show, on Saturday evenings I think, back in the eighties. I'm 31 now so that's about 25 years...GEeez

On and off yes - doesn't mean I'm any good though. The interest has always been there. Happy memories of my childhood in Covent Garden, London being amazed by the street entertainers. Ahhhhh!!!
