    What are your hobbies?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Kit, Apr 16, 2007.

    We've had posts on fave music, why we like writing etc so I thought that in the spirit of trying to get to know each other a little better why not discuss our hobbies :D

    So... me first...

    In no particular order:

    1. Reading
    2. Writing
    3. Drawing
    4. Coaching (i'm training to coach...)
    5. Spending time with friends
    6. Just surfing the net
    7. Chatting
    8. Listening to music
    9. Watching films/Going to the cinema

    I enjoy childish things to, but I save most of that for when I'm with my nephew.
    Most of my hobbies mesh nicely together, so it just seems more 'sophisticated' than it really is.

    reading and writing are not 'hobbies' for me, but life itself... as is helping others wherever/whenever i can...

    It's funny you replied, I am currently writing a very noobish critique of your sci-fi story.

    Don't let it worry you. No one here cares. :bigwink: It's just that I saw Kit's name as the OP and thought, "What?! Kit's back??" :wtf: She was one of the original mods when the forum opened.

    I go through phases with hobbies or rather obsessions which change over time but then return after a while to be joined by new ones. Current hobbies include writing (surprise), exercising daily for almost six months now, cooking, cats, kids, husband, online communities, and overcoming seasonal depression (quite effectively now thanks to exercising). Notable past mentions for lucid dreaming, crocheting, and bread baking - not recently, but will get back to them eventually.
