Talk to me about your hobby

We grind. One thing that keeps us fueled other than money is our hobby that we do on our own time. What is yours?

Try cooking... Not going to lie we started doing the "hello fresh" thing for a few weeks. Never thought I could "cook" or how easy it was.ย

Depending on the gym (of course) I've heard of places offering discounts...or at the very least be willing to negotiate their rates. I'm lucky in that I can just go train and spar at one place and it's just me. I'm sure, when my kid gets older, that he'll probably want to check it out so I'll have to recalibrate then.

Hobby is ART, so I draw, paint, design, hand lettering, lino printing, screen printing, and looking into gold leaf plating, epoxi resinย  sculpting and furniture design

I think many will agree there are those Tier 1 hobbies (ones you're always thinking about) and then the Tier 2 hobbies (ones that ebb and flow across the years).

My big T1 hobbies are going fast, learning new things, and cooking. So I spend a lot of time turning wrenches and carefully maintaining my smoker / grill / kitchen knives while watching Youtube videos about the same. Or reading books about them.

T2 hobbies include videogames, WH40K, camping, and weightlifting.

I am not including drinking as a hobby as that seems like a clear road to being an alcoholic lol.

It is addictive and a lot of fun. There are leagues everywhere. Just check out your park district and see if there is a league and see if anyone needs a player. Teams are always looking.
