I realized the other night that I don't really have any hobbies anymore.

I don't get drunk.
I don't smoke.
I don't go dancing until all hours.

I don't even knit or draw or paint (half-assedly as I do the last 2 things).

I know part of it is being busy with school and some work, and another huge chunk is not having much disposable income, but I miss doing stuff.

And I miss even knowing what I want to do.

So I'm trying to think of hobbies I might like. I found some knitting patterns that look interesting. I also saw a ballroom dancing class (god, am I OLD), and I think I'll start swimming again. Or even going for walks. Maybe taking my camera.

It's kind of disheartening when you miss you who were and don't have any idea who you are.


  1. If you're looking for a new hobby... blogging is kinda fun. ;) I know the feeling, though.

  2. Cracking up at Julie's comment.

    I sure don't miss who I was. But I get what you're saying.

    You're a law student! You don't have to be anything else right now. You don't have time, anyway, what with the class and the studying and the mothering and occasionally stopping to eat, bathe and sleep.

    And just wait till you start working!

    On the other hand, I did take a ballroom dancing class when I was in law school. I didn't want to do it. But my partner BEGGED me. I am susceptible to begging. I ended up having a pretty good time.

  3. Julie - Isn't it funny, I never think of blogging (or reading) as a hobby. Just as something I do. Which I guess is a hobby.

    Kathy - I hate being so wrapped up in school. It's draining. I am going to check out a dance class, I think.


Every time you comment, I get a lady boner.
