My (Nonexistent) Hobbies

As much as I love that Austin is living out his dream of creating for living, sometimes it gets me down.


As a child, my parents never pushed me to “follow my dreams” or get into any sort of hobbies. So I don’t know what I could do for fun. I’ve tried cooking, I hate it. I’ve tried gaming, after a while I get to feeling nauseous (motion sickness) and I need glasses so everything is blurry. I’ve tried gardening, I don’t like being outside. I hate bugs and the heat. I’m not really a crafty person either.  (If y’all have any ideas, comment below or tell me what you’re hobby is!)


Maybe I just haven’t done enough to really find my niche. All I know how to do is work. I’ve been working since I was 16 and never went without a job until recent. (Except that time I quit my job a few years ago and didn’t work for 3 weeks). When I was working, I would work a lot. There was a point where I’m pretty sure I was a workaholic. My thinking was “The more I’m at work, the more money in my pocket”. Since I was at work all the time, I didn’t have time for really anything else.


I do wish my parents were better parents, for many reasons but I’m not going to get into that. I wish they had pushed me to try different things and to find a hobby or something that I had a passion for. If I had started at a young age then maybe I’d have something now or at least be more open minded about trying new things.


Who knows, though, maybe I have found something I enjoy (blogging). 😉

  1. Have you tried poem or song writing? Or even just writing in general?
    I edit for a couple of friends to just calm myself down and since I” a NERD it’s kind of fun.

    1. I actually have not tried writing. I always hated writing in school. Now since I’ve starting writing these blogs, I’ve actually enjoyed it very much. I don’t think I could write anything else, though, truth be told. LOL In case you haven’t noticed, my writing is terrible but at least with practice, it’ll get better. At least I hope LOL

      Thank you for the suggestion! 🙂


  2. Hey Ashley, I hope you’re doing well. It’s hard for me to make any suggestions because we’re total opposites in the hobby department! I love the outdoors, but then in Scotland I don’t exactly have to deal with soaring temperatures for most of the year…
    Have you tried reading? I love reading. It’s so nice to just take an hour out of your day to escape into somebody else’s world. It’s something I used to do on the bus to work to pass the time and you can fit it in pretty much whenever you feel like it. No prep needed! I hope you do find a decent hobby soon. Everybody needs a bit of escapism in their lives.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion, Louise!

      I do like reading as long as I can find something that interests me LOL I do need to try to find a good book soon. When I was younger, I read all the time! It was nice to escape lol

      Again, thank you for the suggestion! 🙂


  3. Have you tried jewelry making, embroidery, knitting, crocheting, quilting, ceramics, painting abstract, indoor herb gardening, candle making, soap making, adult coloring (you could give so away as prizes to the squid squad ;d),photography…this is just to name a few
