I'm Looking For A Hobby - November 12th 2009, 05:50 PM

Well I want to take up a new hobby so I was wondering what hobbies everyone else does.

So what hobbies do you have and what would you recommend?

I have a couple actually:
Diving(of diving boards into the pool) but I've been doing this for a while
Drawing and colored penicles. I like doing letters and then making designs in them and coloring the background and everything.
Writing stories for fanfiction actually its new but I love it.

I would say try drawing I know I am not artistic at all but yet some how my artwork turns out good sometimes.


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

I'm in the SCA (Society of Creative Anachronisms) which incorporates a variety of things. Sewing, embroidery, dance, sword fighting (rapier, huzzah!) archery, camping, singing, cooking and calligraphy. There's also probably a lot more that my tired mind can't think of. However you have to be 18 to do some fighting and you'd need parental permission to attend events/do some of the activities.

Music is something i've done since i was very young, and I still enjoy today. I play drum kit and guitar and just fiddle around writing my own songs.

Something i've recently tried to start to do is film making. I'm a big film mega-nerd person, I love to watch them, make them, and just think up all these stories in my head that need to get out. It's pretty pricy though, but in the end its whatever sparks your interest i guess.

I'm an artisttt! I'm heavily into photography so that takes up a lot of my time, I also have my own photography website so that takes up more time. I also paint a lot so that's something else which helps me pass time. I'd recommend both if you're into art or are creative. Even if you don't think that you're good at art, it's still fun to go wild and get some ideas out onto paper.

I think it helps to know what you already enjoy if you're looking for a particular hobby that you know that you'll like, otherwise I'd suggest that you try out a few things, perhaps activities or clubs that you wouldn't usually think about joining, you might find a new passion, you never know!

Well at the moment I only have singing as a hobby and I suppose collecting things is a hobby too, I like to collect lots of different things like trading cards/crystals/ornaments.

Cooking or sewing.

I know they're totally house-wifey, but they're actually heaps of fun.

Painting (I'm not very good at it but I love it)
Writing poems and stories (see above)
playing the drums
horse riding (my favourite, I love it soo mcuh)

I'd just say try loads of things out and see what you like.

but its there just the same

Kickboxing. <3 It's fun AND whips you into shape. I'd recommend finding a group/class, vs. working out on your own.
