Everyone has or has had hobbies or a hobby in their life. What are some of your hobbies? Cooking? Writing? Origami? Bird watching? I would like to read your responses! Well here are some of mine: Well the computer and the internet are probably two of my biggest hobbies. I spend hours online. I am an avid writer on many forums. myLot, Surface Ripple. 4Newbies, etc. I also go on many paid to sites and get paid to read e-mails, click ads, and complete offers in many sites. Another hobby of mine is aquatics. I have two tanks. One is a turtle tank that is 55 gallons. The other is a small 5.5 gallon shrimp tank I enjoy my I enjoy my 'unique' aquatic life and it is a great hobby of mine. Fishing is another hobby of mine. I love to fish and I love to battle the fish! I also go fishing often on my kayak in the ocean and it is a lot of fun! Reading has always been a great hobby of mine ever since I could read. I started reading chapter books in first grade and have been reading lot ever since! I think this is one of the most pleasurable and productive hobbies of all. Those are pretty much most of my hobbies:-) P.S I comment ALL responses to my discussions;-)

I have many hobbies, as well. I love to crochet and make blankets, scarves, hats and other things for me and my friends and family. I also play violin and love to sing. I like to watch movies and tv. I love to garden and I also love to cook. I like sewing. I write for a part-time job, but I don't really think of it as a hobby. I like to play games on my computer. I also like to talk with people on the internet.

Wow that is awesome that one of your hobbies is horseback riding, it is too expensive and difficult to have a horse here in rural Miami :-\ And I am glad so many people mentioned reading as one of their hobbies :D

I grew up on a farm and From a young age (my first horse back ride was when i was 2..m,y first pony when i was 5) I've been taught to ride. If i lived anywhere but near my parents farm I wouldnt be able to afford having a horse. you'd have to pay board and feed and vet bills as well as the tack and other care a horse needs. Here...I pay vet bills and I care for her myself. I also help with the haying so theres feed for the horses. I feel greatly for those in the cities and other areas that have horses and have to pay hundreds a month just to keep them somewhere.

I feel for your sister and I hope she is doing great here in Florida (yeah I'm a Floridian too). It is very cool that you are making everything for your wedding, even your dress!

My hobbies are writing, playing music on my keyboards, photography, videography, computers, DIY (house and car maintenance), being on line, mylot and emailing. I like socialising and meeting new friends, gardening. I can even consider my work as a hobby. The only thing I am not into is most sports. I used to like to participate, but rarely watch any. :-)

I like your hobbies they are all very productive :-D I used to play the piano but I stopped taking classes because I never practiced and even though I could play things very well I just didn't enjoy :-\ And I too love photography! In fact I got a picture of mine into the semifinals in the picture contest on www.picture.com and I am in some photography book lol Pretty sweet. Videography interests me but that is more of my sister's thing, she has real talent for that. And as for gardening I enjoy helping my mom with the flowers and her plants and everything, it's nice. Thank you for your response :-)

Well I guess my main hobby is tennis. I love the sport. I used to play a lot when I was younger - not so much now I am older, but I still watch it obsessively!! I go to loads of live tournamrnts - Wimbledon, the French Open in Paris, Rome Masters etc, and I also watch every simgle tournament they ever show on TV when I can't get there personally! I belong to a Tennis Forum on the Internet where I have many friends, and if one of my faves is playing when the match is not televised anywhere, I will always follow the scores on live scoreboards on the Internet. Other than that - well I love the theatre and go to the West End about once a month. I love ballet too, and all forms of dance, I like rock music and going to rock concerts, I enjoy fashion and shopping (like most women I guess), and I enjoy reading newspapers and keeping up with current events. Oh - and I love travelling too.

Wow awesome, you sound like a very active person! Tennis does look like a really fun sport and I have wanted to take classes but they are expensive and I don't have much time for that. I like rock music as well and concerts are great! Traveling is also very fun ... Thank you for your response :-)

I have a lot of hobbies although I don't have a lot of time to work on any of them. My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my kids and my husband. We like to go to museums and for picnics in the park. I also like to read and spend time on the internet. I like to write on here and I seldom do Helium. I have thought about trying Associated Content but I haven't yet. I also like to go to garage sales and list on Ebay. I enjoy shopping online too. I love finding bargins. I also enjoy cooking and eating. I think I like to eat more than I do to cook!

I make and sell handmade jewelry, scarves and hats, etc at craft shows & online. I also enjoy photography and beachcombing for sea glass, shells, driftwood (and anything else the sea offers up for me to find along the beach)and I often have a troop with me, as my hubby and our 2 boys enjoy walking the beach looking for treasures from the ocean.

I have quite a few hobbies. Some I still do and some I don't get a chance to hardly. I love swimming, fishing, horseback riding, cross stitching, plastic canvas, quilting, jewelry making, crocheting, baking, the computer, games, making bath salts and such, and there's a lot more. I love just about everything, at least for the most part I do.

I think I'm an amateur at many trades but a master of none. I like photography, music, reading, cooking, spelunking, skydiving, mountain-climbing, surfing, movie-going, and walks in the park. I think the worst thing is when I end up spending too much time working and not enough time relaxing!

My hobbies are photography, crafting, beachcombing for beach glass and travelling. I really enjoy going to places I've never been, taking lots of pictures, seeing sites I may never get a chance to see again. I find that places like the ocean, the Grand Canyon, Sedona's Red Rocks have inspired some of my crafting ideas, so in a way, all of my hobbies are loosely tied to one another. Great idea for a thread!

Wowm those are all really awesome hobbies. I love photography as well, I actually wanted to take a photography class next year but I am saving up for a Macbook so I can't afford to spend money on the $100 fee for the class plus the purchase of a nice film camera.

I have a few hobbies, but I never seem to devote much time to them; not consistantly at least. I like painting and drawing, and I make bead necklaces and bracelets just often enough to justify keeping all the tools and supplies ;-), i do a lot of DIY stuff on our house, some is just for enjoyment, but most is necessary or trying to build up the place for a better price when we sell, so I don't know if that counts as a hobby, since I'll sort of make money off it. I also enjoy reading, photography (mostly digital now, since it takes up less room), and using the internet.
