    Whats a hobby you always wanted to pick up ?

    Hey all,

    At the moment my life is super busy. However I wish I had sometime to just sit and read and write and also pick up some new hobbies. I wish I could pick up podcasting or video blogging. My wife wants to pick up clay sculpting.

    What about you ? What would you wish to pick up as a hobby ?

    Thanks for your time.
    Regards
    Allan

    Hey Allan,

    I think I'd want to pick up guitar because it's something I've always messed around with a little bit, but I've never really been too serious about it. I play a lot of different instruments, but some of them, like the marimba, I can't actually afford or fit in my house. I do have a guitar that my brother gave me, but I honestly am not very good with it and rarely pick it up. I want to make more of a hobby out of it, just something that I enjoy doing without feeling like I need to be amazing at.


    Have a great day!

    Hey Allan!

    That's a good question. I've always wanted to be a polymath of sorts but as I've gotten older, I feel like my free time has dwindled significantly. I used to play guitar and was big into music production. Lately I've been developing skills that I enjoy to further my career so in a sense, I could argue that I'm entertaining a hobby.. but something I've always wanted to be better at but have never made progress on is drawing. I've done some digital art but even that isn't as good as I'd like and I believe it to be attributed to never being able to draw to begin with.

    Good morning, Allan!

    There were a couple of hobbies that I wanted to pick up in the past and I started one of them about 5 years ago and the other I just started recently. When I was in the 9th grade, I had a textile class that I learned to knit in. I find knitting to be very relaxing and it is cool to be able to take yarn to make something. A lot of people tried to tease me for knitting but I just tell them, I must have an old sole because I enjoy it.

    The second thing I wanted to do was paint and I just recently started, maybe about 2 months or so ago. I was surprised that I wasn't actually terrible. I thought I would not be very good at it since I am not good at drawing, but I have received a lot of complements for my paintings. Besides at this point, even if I wasn't good at it I think I would still do it because it helps me to clear my head and gives me something to do in my dorm room when I am bored or want to relax.

    Have a great day and good luck this week!

    I'd love to pick up drawing more! I already have it as a hobby, but it would be super neat if I could do it more often!

    Good forum!

    Hi Allan,

    One hobby I am really interested in is airplane flying. There are a lot of see planes that fly in and out of Seattle and I would love to learn how to fly one! Flying is so cool and modern technology has made it so interesting than from where I first started.

    Another hobby is playing the saxophone. Although cello is my favorite instrument, I love the saxophone because I love jazz. I mean, you can play jazz on the cello, but saxophone is one of those stable instruments that many ensembles have. I love the rich sound and it is the only woodwind instrument that I truly enjoy to the extent that I own an album featuring the saxophone.

    Cheers!

    Hey Allen!

    One hobby that I've always wanted to learn is playing the piano~ The music that comes from the instrument always mesmerizes me. Sadly, I have yet to take lessons on it as it is very costly :')

    Have a nice day!

    Hi Allan,

    I always wished I could pick up stand-up comedy. I like the way a commedian makes people lighten up and ease off worries and I always wish I had that capacity for stand up commedy so I can reach out to more people.

    I think their world is often a beautiful one - to make people laugh and feel at ease with you.

    Well thanks for reading. Have a fun day.

    Cheers.

    Hey Allan,

    I would totally love to pick up Fencing. You get a good workout and also its a lot of fun. Its hard though with class, homework and work though.

    best,

    I have like a million things I would love to do in my free time. I think one of my hobbies I'd love to pick up is playing the violin. I am not musically inclined at all but I always knew that if I ever did play an instrument, I would want to learn how to play the violin.

    Some other things include drawing. I used to draw every single day, now I'm lucky if I get to just sit down and draw one thing every 6 months or so. Another one that just came to me now would be picking up streaming. For those who don't know what that is, it's basically getting to play video games while broadcasting over the internet to subscribers, I would love to pick that up.

    Hey Allan!

    I've always wanted to be able to play drums. Drummers are always so cool and I've always wanted to pick it up! It's hard to pick up new hobbies when you take honors and AP classes and your school requires 2 extracurricular activities and 20 service hours. It's a miracle I even get to sleep!

    Thanks for the forum!!

    Hi Allan,

    I want to learn a martial art as a hobby. I think that it would be fun to learn, it would also be helpful in some situation, and it would keep me in shape. Unfortunately, it is a little costly and that is not in the budget for me right now.
