I strongly believe that everyone must have at least one constructive hobby. A hobby that helps them express. A hobby that helps them release excess energy in creative ways. A hobby that keeps the mind busy, so that it doesn't get time to dwell on negativity.
I am a person with a hyperactive mind. Therefore, I have been involved in a lot of different hobbies over the years. I love making new stuff, be it through art & craft, or needlework, or cooking (occasionally), or some designing on the computer. Blogging is one of my current favorite hobbies. Watching English movies is another. I also love listening to music.
So what's my most favorite hobby? What's that one thing I like doing more than anything else?
It took a while for me to figure this one out. Eventually it was Dad who helped me realize this.
My most favorite hobby is reading. It is that one thing that I'm addicted to... the one thing that I simply can't control! If I start a book, it becomes impossible for me to put it down without completing it. I no longer remember to eat or drink or sleep or work. It's almost as if I don't even exist here anymore... as if I'm in some other world - the world of the book.
My Dad now gets terrified the moment he sees another book in my hands! To be honest, even I am scared now of picking up another book to read! I have got so many awesome books sitting in my books almirah, waiting to be read. And then there are so many more on the kindle app on my phone! I probably have enough reading material for two years of continuous reading! I seriously need to work on my self control regarding books!
Do you have any favorite hobbies? Do you have any such "addictions" that scare the hell out of you?
