What does living the lolita lifestyle mean to you?

I'm fairly new to becoming a lolita on a serious level. I've admired and longed for the frills from afar but I haven't become serious till now. However, I find that frills or no frills (sadly in the no frills category) I find I've lived what I considered the 'lifestyle' for years. Now on to the silly, just for fun, list!

  • a love of tea, cute mugs, and tea sets
  • reading ( I guess you could say my taste fits closest with a gothic lolita)
  • learning (with great frustration) to sew
  • trying to eating healthy (because eating healthy and feeling healthy is beautiful)
  • music to put me into that lolita mood (i.e. emilie autumn, the marie antionette soundtrack, kerli, etc)
  • experimentation (we are dare devils at heart for being lolita alone so it only makes sense that our fashion should have guidelines not rules)
  • daydreaming
  • a love of drawing/writing to make me feel productive and give me a good excuse to buy stationary, notebooks, or pens
  • taking pictures 
  • playing dress up
  • dollies

My list is always growing and changing (as in my hobbies). I can only say this is how I do and will continue to live the 'lifestyle' with adjustments of course maybe something that caters more towards the gothic lolita or classic styles (because who doesn't want to try new hobbies right?). But what about you more experienced lolitas or even newbies like me. What do you consider is living the lifestyle? Do you think there are different kinds of lives for the different kinds of lolitas and their sub cultures? 

I was just trying to say. Frills or no frills, I consider myself a lolita in that sense because I don't NEED brand/off brand clothes to do that however, fun and slightly essential it may be. But of course that's NOT THE ONLY THING I AM. I'm a gamer and love corny movies and mainstream music. Wearing jeans and getting down and dirty. Addicted to anime which I don't consider lolita. You get the picture. I actually consider myself a nerd and tomboy. I mean you don't see gamer or ramen addict on my list. It's just stuff I do for fun.
I just want to know that aside from the stuff we do in our everyday lives what do we do that we might consider loliable that isn't listed above.

LOLITA IS A FASHION. I'M JUST NOT A LOLITA YET. I'LL GET THERE ONE DAY AND IT  SEEMS LIKE NOT WITHOUT CAUSING A RUCKUS ON THE WAY. I DON'T WANT TO CAUSE YOU LOLITAS TO FIGHT. KEEP CALM AND ENJOY YOUR FRILLS. YES I WENT THERE.
