Yeah, I actually like all this stuff.

Definition of HOBBY : a pursuit outside one’s regular occupation engaged in especially for relaxation  – Merriam-Webster Dictionary

“Books are not about passing time. They’re about other lives. Other worlds. Far from wanting time to pass, one just wishes one had more of it. If one wanted to pass the time one could go to New Zealand.”  Alan Bennett

Your Hobbies Do Not Define You

But they do tell others a lot about what you think is important.

Your Hobbies Come at a Great Cost

Even more than money, consider the time that your hobbies take up. You can always earn more money, but once your time is spent you will never get it back. Choose wisely.

Your Hobbies May Change Over Time

There are some hobbies I had growing up that I just don’t spend time on anymore.

Playing in the dirt, for example. My ill-fated attempts at skateboarding. Playing Tennis. Throwing frogs and lizards at girls. (Not that I would mind going back to a few of those…)

The best part about hobbies, is that you can be terrible at them, and it’s ok. It’s all for fun. When it stops being fun, it is time to move on…

So enough about me, I want to hear from you: What are your hobbies? What do you wish you had more time for? What hobby did you have as a child that you would never consider doing today?
