Welcome to Thursday Things, where you might find a rant, a rave, a question, or just about anything else! Let’s scrounge around in the junk drawer of my brain and see what we can find!
As I’ve been working over my current journaling and focus system (something I’ll be writing about at some point), I’ve come to realize that I have way too many hobbies! In fact, you could almost say that one of my hobbies is to collect more hobbies! The main ones that I spend the most time on are writing, and reading. But I also cross stitch, quilt, crochet, paint, draw, play guitar, hike, kayak, go thrifting, collect fountain pens, collect old sci-fi books, and work with tarot and oracle cards. I also like to learn new things, so sometimes I take online classes. I think there are actually a few more hobbies than that, but I can’t remember them. Hmm.
What are your hobbies?

One response to “Thursday Things: The Hobby of Collecting Hobbies”
A hobby for trying out different hobbies actually sounds like fun. You get to gain all types of experiences that way, as long as you pace yourself and make sure not to become overwhelmed.
I have many of the same hobbies: writing, reading, playing narrative-rich puzzle games, crocheting, and journaling, among others. They can be great ways to relax.
