So I need a hobby. I find that as I get older (ugh) – I do less and less. I go to work, go home and watch TV. Sometimes I find the energy to cook dinner – or as my husband would say “assemble dinner” since I rarely cook. I mostly “assemble” tacos or a salad. I am only a good cook in my head. However I like to think I am an amazing baker! Which is a great hobby for some but not my waist line, or my husbands or my brothers (who is also my roommate – I know but that is another post for another time) So I guess my baking hobby is not that great for everyone – it’s something that I really should limit myself to doing for special occasions only. And since I have so few hobbies I will document each baked good creation I make for your viewing pleasure and because you care so much!
I love to read! That is definitely my number one hobby. But, I need an active hobby. I need something that gets me off the couch and out into the world. I need to have experience and fun stories to bore my future kids with when I am old. Also, I read for pleasure not for educational purposes. I don’t care that a book won an award or if it’s a classic. So basically if there is some equivalent of magic, vampires, witches, wizards, some kind of murder mystery, ghosts, or Chelsea Handler in the book I am reading it! I will occasionally read a book that does not have anything listed previously if a trusted friend or Oprah recommends it.
But back to an active hobby – I need one. So I started this blog to try new activities that I can potentially make the ultimate commitment to and dub a hobby – i.e. brag about, put on a resume, and talk obnoxiously about to friends, family and coworkers (your welcome) – I will document my hobby trials and tell you what I think and what hobby will get a second chance/date. I am basically dating hobbies. If you want to join let me know and we can make this a group effort! Hopefully this will inspire others to get off the couch and live a little.
