I Need a New Hobby



Summer and I feel like we need a new hobby.

Alright, I take that back. Summer's hobby is sleeping and eating like a queen, but me???

I'm stuck.

On the top of my mind, I guess you can say my hobbies includes reading, writing (ish), blogging, and Netflix. I don't know if going to the gym counts as a hobby but eh.

I feel like I need a new hobby to better myself (and maaaaybe just make some pocket money). But, more so, to better myself.

I'm in need a new affordable hobby whiiiiich is stumping me so much! I see people's Instagram and they're all filled with nice pictures of their activities/hobbies and all I want to do is find a new one.

Photography

I started photography back in 8th grade and stopped several years ago when my DSLR got stolen. I saved up my money and purchased another DSLR but by then, I lost interest in photography. I've been toying with the idea of getting back into it but that would mean investing in a DSLR, lens and accessories again (since I sold all my equipment). Right now, I'm not currently in a position to spend a lot because my ultimate goal is to move overseas. I was on another blog and the blogger recommended an Olympus camera with interchangeable lenses that was good in quality and very very affordable. It's not a big Canon DSLR but it's good enough to suffice for a hobbyist photographer soooo....

Blogging

Blogging has always been my hobby for a loooong time but I need something else outside of the blogging world. Nothing can replace blogging!

Reading

I read a lot already, haha. I'm starting to run out of interesting books to read!

Writing

Believe it or not, I used to write a lot. I wrote stories, short stories, poems, etc. etc. I've thought about getting back into writing but the moment I launch Microsoft Word and write out the first chapter or something, I lose interest in it instantly. Also, because I've stopped writing stories so long ago, I feel the stories I write now are rusty compared to before

Knitting/Stitch Crossing

I've fancied this hobby for a while but when I looked into the materials, I got so overwhelmed. I saw yarn selling for $70! A lot of people say it's really easy to start knitting so I might pick it up if any materials are deemed affordable for my budget, haha. I'm feeling I'm a bit impatient to learn the basics of tools and knitting.

Cooking

If I started cooking, I would have to buy a whole new set of pots and measuring cups, and everything because my household lacks those. That would eat a lot of my money right there. A part of wants to bake and cook but the amount of items I would need to purchase haunts me! Still trying to save here!

Coding

I thought about picking up coding to earn some pocket money but the moment I start looking at online lessons, I just get stressed out. I guess being a full time student is also hindering me to learn anything else and dedicate the hours needed for it.

Sometimes, I feel like I'm making way too many excuses in finding a new hobby because I'm content with the activities I do to fill my time. I want to expand my experiences so maybe I'd pick one off the list of hundreds of hobbies recommended to me and go for it!

I never realized how difficult it is to find a new hobby when you're in your 20s.
