So I have realized lately that I don’t really have a hobby.
I play with Aiden when I get off work, I play with Aiden on the weekends, I attend church and Aiden’s baseball games, I go out to eat and do date days with my wife. I do lots of outside things like housework and sports, and certainly not regularly. But I have no hobbies.
I don’t read. In fact, I can think of few things that I want to do less than read. I do it once in a while but that is about it.
I don’t crochet, knit, cross stitch, watch chick flicks, blog (much), build glass ships, stamp collect, or build model cars. I used to collect baseball cards, when I was 12. Haven’t looked since.
I am kinda a boring person. I am people person and just want to be around people. But I need to fill my alone with something, and not filling to the point of not ever having time, but I would like to have some options that draw me.
You know, I think I might have found a substitute. Sports! Seriously, I need to watch more sports. I love watching postseason baseball. I love listening to baseball playoff radio. I love watching NBA basketball and NFL football. I mean, its a golden experience to listen to Orel Hershiser calling a game online. Now, I used to be the kind of guy who couldn’t get away from sports, but I worked on that to the point that I don’t even care to watch and have spent the last couple years watching almost zero sports. But I miss it. I really do. Not the commercials or anything like that. But its great! It may not be a hobby, but I love it!
