    Hobbies

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by thesatindancer008, Jan 2, 2009.

    Hello everyone! I'm finding myself getting a bit bored with life and am antsy to learn a new hobby (to go along with writing of course!). However, I cannot think of what to start. Could you possibly give me ideas? What are your hobbies?

    Well...my hobbies include painting, photography, beading, sculpture, Dungeons and Dragons, Bargain-hunting, acting, choir, theater tech, and video games. That will give you a few to chose from. :)

    Why don't you learn to play a musical instrument? I'm failing at learning to play the electric guitar, but it's fun all the same...;)

    I think fountain pens are lovely...but with my handwriting...no point. I should take up calligraphy. Maybe that would help me.

    I considered serial killing, but it requires a lot of pre-planning and my schedule is so busy right now... maybe next year, if I've got the time for it.

    Cooking
    Knitting
    Weaving
    Painting
    Piano
    Running/exercising (I'm training for a 10K this summer)
    Hiking
    Shopping
    Reading
    Getting my husband to put the stupid Wii down for more than 10 minutes at a time
    Avoiding my in-laws

    Rules:

    1. Never talk about your killing
    2. Do not even mention killing
    3. Never say you aren't a serial killer

    The first rule is "Don't get caught," The second rule is "Don't get caught." The third rule is "Don't get caught"...
