    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 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...

    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 needed a new hobby

    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!?

    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...

    Electric Rc Planes.

    So, in addition to picking up dancing again almost a year ago, I'm looking at getting into RC planes, specifically electric. I saw a great channel on YouTube that features many different models, and even a guest video of a custom model flying wing with no stablizers and no gyros...

    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...

    Hi I am Lisa. I want to try to find something to do different. Right now I want to post blogs some. Also, I want to try to find another hobby like a sport maybe. I like being outside. Hopefully I can. I am good at recycling, so that is something I do in a way. I hope that I can...

    I literally call studying a hobby.

    I enjoy reading and taking endless notes and then going back to them at a later date to retain the information further. Although i enjoy this, it has led some to believe that i am a little bit...strange. Lol, which is why i am looking for a new hobby. I read fiction novels with...

    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...

    A New Passion

    Music, art and poetry are hobbies I enjoy very much, yet my soul seeks for a new passion, something wonderful and interesting which I could feel entertained and could also learn from. The search has begun.
