Now that my hobby has become my job (read about that here), I’ve decided that I need a new hobby. I find myself lounging in front of the TV whenever I’m not working, so I want to find something more enriching to help fill my spare time. The question is what can beat watching reruns of Glee (gah! I admitted it!)? Or watching the movie The Holiday for the cagillionth time?
My mother-in-law gave me her copy of the local community education catalog. I looked through it last night and circled a few classes I found interesting:
It’s no secret what a weakling I am. Maybe this class would be good for me, and maybe I’ve dreamed of kicking butt since I saw Kill Bill for the first time, but there are things I’d rather be learning.
I like the idea of exercise that I have to go to. What I need is a set exercise time that I can’t wiggle out of…but wait! I think I’m wiggling away from the idea of an exercise class. I’d rather just watch this clip from a brilliant beyond brilliant movie:
Another possibility is:
Now, I know what you’re thinking…Quilting? How totally uninspired! But really, I wish I knew how to sew better. I think it would be nice to have another skill to add my arsenal. If I learn how to quilt, it will open up another realm of art possibilities. And if stereotypes hold true, something tells me I’ll be the youngest one in the class!
And last but not least, Ukulele!
I played guitar for years in high school, but I think the Uke suits me better. I’m small and I love the beach, so I’m pretty sure I’ll love the Ukulele too! Also, my name is Melody and I don’t even play an instrument…LAME!
So I’m mulling it over. Anyone else looking for a hobby? Anyone have a hobby that you love?
