I went to a training class at work today and by way of introducing ourselves, they asked participants to talk about a hobby. I racked my brain for something better to say than just watching YouTube and Netflix which is probably how I spend 90% of my free time. It’s as valid a way to pass time as anything else, but doesn’t seem hobby-like. I ended up sharing that I enjoy cooking and doing yoga.
Then I came home to a couple of packages I’d just ordered. One item was this new watercolor set. I discovered some watercolor hobbyists on YouTube and decided to dabble in this. When I was a kid, I took watercolor lessons and even though I didn’t really have the patience for art (and I still don’t), I enjoyed studying objects to try to put them on paper. And I love color!
I’m not sure how long this interest will last – for 5 minutes or longer term. So maybe my other hobby is really just shopping for my maybe-hobbies.
