I Need A Hobby Y’all

I need a hobby. All the people I know, they do things. I don’t do things.

Here is a diagram describing what I’m talking about – because professionalism y’all. I take this shit seriously.



Any suggestions on what I should do? Keep in mind I’m not really good at anything that doesn’t involve ghosts, cotton candy, and the apocalypse.

  1. I’m so glad I found your blog, and so glad that I read this plea! Here’s something for you to consider … How about Wand Making? Not the rolled up paper and hot glue type of thing – but actual wand making properly. You’ll have to do a little research in order to find out what you need to know, and also discover within yourself what type of wands you want to make. They could be just plain wooden wands – or they could be gem set; maybe metal wands; or how about wooden wands which you have hand decorated with inks and dyes. The list is endless.

    I’m a maker of wands, and have recently began blogging about my own makes of ‘stuff’ – and have posted (so far) pictures and details of one wand which I’ve made, but I do have some photographs of other wands (waiting for me to re-size and watermark) which will be making their way onto my blog pretty soon.

    But hey .. don’t just look at my blog. Google and take a peep at what images pop up for you to look at. Also … take a peep on ebay (‘handmade wands’) – and you’ll find a plethora of ideas. But remember to make originals – don’t simply copy someone elses wand because you won’t get that thrill if it’s just a copy.

    You could turn this hobby into a money maker by selling your wands .. or you could simply make them for yourself and display them either on the wall or on a rack.

    Good luck with whatever you decide to adopt as your hobby! πŸ™‚

  2. When someone asks me “what are your hobbies?”, it feels like I’m back in highschool when people ask “So what are you going to do with your life now??”. It’s awkward as all heck, and frankly, I do lots of things that may or may not be considered hobbies. What exactly is a hobby anyway?! lol I enjoy doing many things but don’t know if they’d be classified as hobbies. Boating, snowboarding, tobagganing, skating, drinking, crocheting? Maybe try baking, skydiving, deep sea fishing? The list is endless. I personally just like crocheting so I have an excuse to watch tv haha

  3. You definitely don’t need to be fabulous at it to make art that you enjoy…the best thing about hobbies is finding your zen in the process. Good luck πŸ™‚

  4. Hobbies?? What are these hobbies you speak of?? Are they baby Hobbits??

    Your diagram looks like my diagram! I feel like I am missing out on something that other people seem to enjoy and but I don’t know which store to get it from because the other people won’t tell me where they got theirs!

    The search continues…

    So I’m 14, I don’t know how old you are but here are some ideas:
    Join a sports club (netball is good/running/swimming)
    Try chess (I’ve never played this but I know a few that really enjoy it)
    If you live in the UK look on the ‘Parkrun’ website for your nearest 5km Parkrun event, they take place on Saturday mornings at 9am and are timed so that you can improve. http://www.parkrun.org.uk/
    Music – piano/keyboard, ukulele/guitar/banjo, flute/recorder, research different instruments until you’ve found one that interests you, you’ll need to pay for lessons in order to learn it properly (Youtube can’t help you enough)
    Join an acting company, you could be part of quite a few productions.
    If you live in the countryside, or a less urbanized area, have a go at horseriding, although it is fun, you’ll need a lot of time and money to get the full experience.
    DANCE is brilliant, you can make friends from other local areas and get really fit at the same time (or Zumba)
    Start a Youtube channel and talk/teach/show (beauty/music/advice and debate/humour/science and tech/etc)
    Have a Saturday job if you are under 16 (waitress/Boots assistant/charity volunteer/etc)

    So yeah hope this helped πŸ™‚

  6. Oooh! I’ve got one! Being the unofficial inspector for fair food? (especially cotton candy) That way when the apocalypse happens, you’ll safely know that you’ve done all you can in eating only the best.

  7. Aw. I was about to suggest ghost hunting, just to be different than most people. Lol. Wait… Doesn’t sleeping count as a hobby? Oh darn. There goes one of my hobbies crossed of the list. πŸ˜‰

  8. Blogging kind of counts as a hobby. Take it further and write stories. Or cook/bake, since you like cotton candy and have to eat anyway. I knit, and run, and neither one has as much of a learning curve as you might expect.

  9. I say, start up your own cotton candy business and employ people who also like ghosts and then out of those people create a group, or a team, like the A team for being in an apocalypse (sorry, I’m trying) Or take up something which you have never done and become really good at it, for example maybe try dancing or some sort of sport:) xo

  10. I’m always flummoxed by the “Do you have any hobbies?” question. Uh, well, I do… stuff… “Hobbies” always seems like it has to be really specific, like collecting antique maps or restoring old axes or something.

    Anyway, I suggest collecting old axes or restoring antique maps.

    Well, then, your hobby should be making cotton candy ghosts, and using them as models in scenes from the apocalypse!

  12. “So I’m thinking, maybe we’re looking for a witch. There’s some great spells that work much better with an ear in the mix.”
    “That’s one fun little hobby you’ve got there, Will.”
    -Willow and Buffy, BTVS.

  13. Don’t worry if you don’t have any hobbies! What you do in your spare time is not all that defines you! My only hobby would be binge watching television shows and I don’t think that’s the kind of hobby they are asking for on the ‘hobbies and interests’ section of your resume. So don’t be too concerned about whether or not you should take up knitting, instead focus on the person you are and what your like to be around πŸ™‚

  14. After I finished my masters I realized I didn’t have any hobbies either… after much exploration I discovered despite being meh at it, I really liked rock climbing! Also, knitting is surprisingly satisfying, and cheaper to start πŸ˜€

    This is a toughie……stargazing?
    I. Have. No. Idea. Where. That. Came. From
    I saw apocalypse and thought that. Or if all fails, you could go befriend a llama. Apparently llamas watch Game of Thrones, too.
