This week’s topic: Non-Bookish Hobbies
Okay, so I’m pretty boring. Reading is my main hobby, though I’m sure you can understand why! Beyond reading I only have a few other hobbies.
Watching movies I have said it before, but I’ll say it again, I love movies. I do. I like them in all forms, but am rather picky on a few details, such as the necessity of a good cast and a happily ever after. I love fiction because it’s an escape from reality and if I’m escaping reality, stupid rules like “people don’t always get a happy ending” shouldn’t apply, right? I am equally fascinated with watching them at home as I am on the big screen. My current big screen obsession is Frozen. I have seen it 4 times and will probably see it again this month sometime. 🙂
Watching TV shows The same rules apply here as they do to the films, but here we get a longer relationship with our characters. Sometimes it’s great because we get more of the things we love and sometimes it’s terrible because the show stops being about the story and starts being about the show makers making money. Either way, though, I’m addicted.
Video Games I’m not terribly guilty of this, but I do play on occasion. Right now I have a wicked obsession with the newest Pokemon game. They are so fucking cute! I liked to play old school, breaking out Super Mario Land or Yoshi’s Island on my Super Nintendo. I was also highly obsessed with DDR for most of my high school years and still play on rare occasion.
Playing like a kid I like to go and play at parks. Seriously, I like to swing and play on the jungle gym and do all that crap. I really think the world would be a better place if we had adult-sized playgrounds where we could let off steam that way.
Do you have any non-bookish hobbies? Let me know in the comments!
