    In Need Of a Hobby

    Advertisements
    I am currently attending college and working two jobs. I try to keep myself busy so that way i have less time to think about how he is gone. This semester i have a lot of gaps between my classes that are long enough where i get bored and have nothing to do but short enough where i can not pick up a small shift . I really do not have a hobby of any sort. Any advice of something i can do to fill my time. I do not like to read because i am not the kind of person who can sit still and mostly focus on a book. I tend to be a crafty person i use to scrapbook but lost interest in that.

    What do you enjoy doing? There are tons of things you *could* do - cross-stitching, scrapbooking, crocheting, knitting, art, photography, learning/practicing an instrument, learning/practicing a language, horticulture, fishkeeping, writing.....................

    I would suggest building models.

    You say you liked scrapbooking but lost interest. Building models of waterfalls or any other natural structure migh keep you busy and it is very inexpensive.
    Also adding stuff to your clothes making it more fashionable and of your tastes is a huge plus. You'll be satisfied of your work and I'm sure your fiance would be excited to see new designs you done to your clothes with you in it ^^.

    There are tons of DIY videos on youtube. If your interested, I suggest looking up CutiepieMarzia. She does cute and simple diys that you can do any time of your leisure.

    I knit and sew. I recently turned it into a side business to make a little extra money, as well. It's therapeutic for me and I enjoy the creativity behind it. It's also fairly inexpensive if you just buy cheap yarn or fabric.

    Get a camera ... photography the world around you and make a scrap book for you DH when he returns so he can see what you did. Explore a new place every weekend or so.

    I am the ADD crafter/hobbiest... I sew, quilt, decorate, cross stitch, crochet, knit, scrapbook, photograph, and more. It's pretty sad.
