    My life feels so mundane lately and I would love to do something active but I can't figure anything cost effective aside from the usual, such as walking and etc. I go to the beach but I would love to try something with a team, which is odd because normally I'm just the odd one...

    I need a hobby of some sort.

    I've taken like 20 quizzes online to find out what would be good for me and most of the quizzes suck. Any ideas from you? Thanks :)

    Rock Collecting?

    My son was interested in rock collecting for about 2 minutes lol and in that time, I became strangely fond of it! I love all the different colors and textures of the rocks and if you go to search for them by water ( the beach, lake, streams, etc...) then it's just really...

    I really want to learn to knit. I used to know how and have forgotten. I loved it. I learned while in high-school and over the years just forgot. My daughter-in-law can crochet and I am going to get her to teach me. I love doing things like that with my hands. I remember...

    Same Boat

    I'm in a great relationship with a really interesting guy. I started to resent the fact that we only talked about or practiced his hobbies--until I realized that I don't really have any hobbies of my own! I love reading and watching movies, and I like to knit, but I need...

    I'm Bored

    I haven't really had a hobby ever.  I love to read, but that's not really a hobby.  I don't paint.  I love to write, but I don't do that nearly enough.  And I always hate what I write. One of my bestest friends is taking up the guitar and I told him that...

    Something... Cost-effective?

    Ok, I am desperately in need of a new hobby. Unfortunately, I am also desperately in need of a lottery win (the odds of which are increasingly unlikely, since I don't buy lottery tickets). So basically, I need a hobby that's not going to cost much. There are a lot of...

    I really need a hobby.

    I love photos, literature and animals. I just wish I could find something that sparked my interest. I don't see myself as an artistic person, and I find that so many hobbies involve an artistic element!?
