An Experience of a Lifetime

An Experience of a Lifetime

I feel people nowadays have a lot of free time on their hands and are wasting that precious resource when it could be used to make fun and sometimes stupid decisions through a hobby.

I have explored a bunch of hobbies and am still wondering which I should follow through with, while others have been doing some hobbies for years.

Fishing is a very popular hobby for people who have patience and can be started at a young age — sometimes as early as two years old. I, myself, started fishing on and off around the bright young age of seven years old.

What I find is a beautiful thing is that very few people can stick with a singular hobby throughout their entire life and not get tired of it. I am honestly envious of people who can stay committed to something they feel so passionate about.

People can even make hobbies their job if they are good enough at it, and like most things, these certain things take hours of practice and dedication.

One hobby I think of when I wonder what hobby could be done over a lifetime is origami.

Origami is an ancient Japanese art of which you use complex folds and twist’s to make different objects or creatures.People devote years — if not decades — perfecting this medium, which is one of the most precise and delicate pastimes.

A hobby I have had for about two years is writing short stories. I love putting down my ideas of how a certain world should work or how a crazy robot was brought into creation.

One of my worlds in progress right now is writing a full blown novel. I know it will take a long time but I know in the end it will be worth it. That is why I love my hobby.

I was curious as to what other people have as their hobby, so I decided to ask around.

Matthew Greene’s hobby is aquariums, and he has been doing this for five years.

He said he’s “a big fish guy,” but I don’t think he meant it literally.

Jack Jones has been mountain biking for three years, and he has been in love with it ever since he started.

Their happiest memories of their respective hobbies: Matthew’s was getting his first fish which was Tiger Oscar, which is a beautiful fish. Jack’s fondest memory was buying his first mountain bike.

I love how varied people’s hobbies can be and how they progress through them getting better and better depending on how much effort they put into them.

I recommend, if you have free time and don’t know what to do, start up a hobby. When you’re watching TV, pick up a pen and pad and start drawing or something.

Just go for it and see where it takes you.
