It can be relaxing, and you have something to wear! I’ve made a few pieces that won blue ribbons at the county fair. It may not be much but I was super proud of it!
22. Painting. You’re constantly adapting to what the paint is doing, thinking, using your intuition, and you’re a lot more active than you appear to be.
23. Model building, at first your stuff going to come out looking like crap, too much glue, not enough glue, you cut the wrong piece, you have put a decal on wrong, etc.
But after a while, it starts to become peaceful and enjoyable to a point that you genuinely take pride in what you have built, so you go for harder builds and better quality, and eventually, you have a massive collection of wonderful models and figurines.
24. Learning. You have the internet where you can learn anything you wish in hundreds of enjoyable ways and it’s practically free. Gaining knowledge should feel awesome. It’s a shame school does the opposite to most people.
25. Making spreadsheets. I love finding patterns in the stuff.
26. Cooking. It seems mundane for everyone. But imagine if you could make your own favorite dishes without spending a huge amount of cash on a fancy restaurant or any kind of restaurant. You might able to spend your cash on the ingredients. But you can have your favorite meal for the next few days.
Bonus if you managed to cook a new dish properly, you might impress peoples around you. Especially toward your SO.
27. Model railroading and/or train simulation.
28. Language learning.
It’s slow, methodical, and can be frustrating at times, but that moment when you can form simple sentences without much effort is probably one of the most gratifying feelings I’ve ever felt.
29. Reading. It’s an adventure in your mind.
30. Collecting coins. There are so many weird ways of doing this hobby.
It can bring you to the deep recesses of eBay, a garage sale or flea market in the middle of nowhere, your grandmother’s attic, or a random field with a metal detector.
And there are so many variations on HOW you can collect memorabilia coins, state quarters, pre-war coins, silver coins, gold coins, or coins from a specific year, or whatever qualifier you can think of.
