what is my hobby?
i have been asked many times "what is your hobby?" and "how do you spend your free time?"

i have no real answer to this. usually i tell people "i read books" or "i like to watch asian drama."

and i do. i legitimately like them both. however, the premise of the original question poses a problem. it took me til just now to realize it.

i like doing many things but i lack "free time". i work. i go home. i cook. i wash dishes. i shower. i drink hot tea. i read facebook and gaia stuffs while drinking my tea. then i go to bed.
sometimes i do other chores too like do laundry or go grocery shopping.

hobbies are more for people who have time or like to be constantly busy. and sometimes they are for people who have money... some hobbies are expensive!

sometimes i wish "sleep" was a hobby. LOL!

this is all to say i'm trying to decide what to tell my students my hobbies are...
kicking around words like "travel" and "watching dramas" and "reading", also "baking".

I suppose people with children have even fewer hobbies.
Lack of time makes what you do with your time just that much more important.

You need to come with me during the summer sometime and partake in my new hobby I started a couple years ago. Regional festivals and exploring state parks!!! It's fun and relaxing, and there are creeks to splash in.

Isn't piano one of your hobbies too? You're really good at that too! And you bake snickerdoodles like no woman I've ever met. heart Holiday pastries ftw!
