I really like to play poker and spades on line.  LOL.  Free, cheap and fun.

And when I’m having a bad waiting day, I shop (cheaply).  Retail Therapy!

@babytoes:  I love reading. It has always been one of my favorite pastimes. I also enjoy listening to music, writing, shopping (not cheap but I love flash sale sites), hiking, singing, knitting, sewing, and and dancing.

@babytoes:  I knit, crochet, sew, read, bake and play guitar. Maybe you have a friend who would be willing to teach you? You’d be surprised how many songs you can play with 3-5 basic chords!

@babytoes:  Is sleeping a hobby? Only joking 🙂 I do love to sleep though.

I love reading, watching tv and movies, and traveling. Unfortunately, time and money don’t allow for more frequent travel, so I keep myself busy with the other things.

@babytoes:  I dance in a hula group. I only go go to practice once a week unless we have a show coming up. But it is way more than just a dance group, it is my family 🙂

I collect shot glasses, is that a hobbie too? haha.

Playing guitar would be great! Although, I have had a guitar sitting at my house for the last year and have maybe picked it up 4 times :/ its something you really gotta stick with.

Cross stitch – if you know where to source things it can be reasonably cheap

Drawing – same but also worth investing in some really nice bits as well (copic markers and photoshop with a nice tablet). But pencil and paper is all that you really need :3

Sewing – I like sewing small toy animals, though I’d love to be able to make clothes ^^

Reading – probably worth investing in a kindle XD I’d quite like one – loads of old classics are free to download.

Video games – last a long time but expensive to set up XD

Cooking – I really like taking time to learn new recipies for meals or baking

 

I used to do sports and musical instruments haha but I gave them up when I went to uni because I wasn’t able to stay with my instructors. If it were simple things then you could probably teach yourself a few bits on the guitar or piano – though they both can cost a lot to get set up with haha XD But I guess that’s the same for most things hurr.

@babytoes:  I don’t know how much free time you have or where you live, but if you live in an area that’s not completely rural I’d look into things you could do in groups. For example, a few months ago I joined a women’s choir and it has been really fun singing once a week with them. Joining a group like that definitely makes it more of a commitment, but I like having that to look forward to on a weekday evening. 🙂

Reading, writing, playing video games, photoshopping pictures, watching movies, etc.  I usually try to invent projects for myself.  Currently, I’m trying to upload wedding pictures to Facebook for my friends and family.  I’m also trying to re-organize the house.
