My hobbies are not the worst in the world – I like to cook and bake, I like to write and I like to read.
Three out of four of those hobbies could be turned into careers if I tried very, very hard and was willing to commit. I am, in fact, trying to make one of those things a career for myself at this very moment.
Hobbies are useful, I’ve found, because they keep me from losing my mind. They’re a way to spend the day and finish it feeling accomplished rather than apathetic.
There are many kinds of hobbies, of course. Some have more tangible results than others, some are better respected than others and, some can even make you money.
Of course, the danger with turning a hobby into a career is that you may, in the end, find yourself hating the very thing you once had passion and love for.
Still, on the whole, hobbies are good.
What are some of your hobbies?
