Gaming as a Hobby

There is no set of rules that dictate what you can and cannot have as your hobbies. If there were such a thing, it’ll pretty much destroy the very reason people have hobbies to begin with. A hobby can be anything that a person likes to do in their spare time, it just needs to bring them pleasure. You’ll meet different kinds of people with all kinds of hobbies. Some of these hobbies you might strike you as a tab bit odd as well. You might already have someone in mind with a strange obsession with collecting seeds from different fruits and storing them into neatly labelled jars. Other people have less eccentric hobbies which include reading books, watching movies or even keeping pets. You can really tell a lot about a person by the kinds of hobbies they have and if you can’t, they will since people love talking about things that interests them. Now let’s move the spotlight over to you, what are your hobbies? Do you have things you like to do? You probably do. What we’re about to talk about next might already be a hobby of yours.

Drawing and painting can be a great hobby. Now some people may tell you that in order to be able to draw something worth dignifying as art, you need natural talent. However, that is not very true. Ask anyone you know who makes great drawings to show you their older works, they’ll jump at the opportunity to show you their scribbles and doodles from when they were in grade school. You’ll clearly see how far they’ve come in their artistic endeavor. If you like drawings, you should definitely try your hand at it. You’re going to start pretty rough but as long as you keep trying, you’ll get better and feel the progress, which is a very gratifying feeling. What you draw is entirely up to you, maybe there’s a certain bench at the park you like siting at every now and then because the view is nice but don’t know what else to do other than just sitting, here’s an idea. Why not take a sketch book along next time and try drawing your view? You’ll feel more productive and you’ll find yourself completely immersed in your sketch, which is a great feeling. If you’re a fan of comics and/or manga, here’s another great idea. Draw some of your favorite characters! There’s an immense amount of pleasure in recreating the characters you love, you’re going to have to learn a bit here but that will only give you an opportunity to approach other artists and maybe soon your hobby will lead to you becoming a part of a community. With some practice and time you’ll become a proud artist and be able to look at your older drawings and smile at how far you’ve come. Drawing is a very gratifying, immersive and refreshing hobby!
