I’m one of those people who can’t do things that don’t interest me. No one can tell me what to do. I can’t be rushed. You can suggest things but never force me to do anything because that won’t make me do anything faster. I’m self-indulgent and I’m unhappy if I can’t do things I enjoy doing. Sometimes you have to do things that aren’t fun though. What I like about being an adult the most is the freedom to do what I want. If I don’t feel like cleaning up, I won’t do it. The same with food. I can eat what I like without having to hear anyone complaining about it.
My blog is mostly about my interests so I don’t need to write them down separately. I’ve never really had a hobby when I was a kid. I disliked doing things in groups. My mother tried to put me in a gymnastic group but I didn’t want to be there. I was about 3 years and I didn’t want to join the others so she gave up. I tried handball in 6th grade but that wasn’t for me. They say kids need a hobby but it had no effect on me. I turned good even if I didn’t have anything special. It’s only in my adult life that I started a hobby. It’s more of an interest really. Like this blog. I write about my interests as a hobby. Doing individual things has always been my thing.

interests as a hobby.
I like doing things alone. I go to the movies (when there’s something interesting) Writing is a good alone time. It’s easier to concentrate on doing things when no one is there to disturb your concentration. What I dislike the most are interruptions. I can concentrate if the music is on but if someone talks, it’s then I lose it. One of the reasons why I enjoy photography is the solitude. I don’t photograph people because then you can’t be quiet. The best is when you’re alone and there’s only the quiet keeping you company. I don’t need to be on the internet when I’m outside. I love using it but there must be a limit somewhere. I don’t even own a smartphone. Some people seem to find more interest in their mobiles than their own safety. I’m not chained to my phone that much.
I wish my interests would turn into a job but then are they any fun anymore, is another question. You hear stories where people have turned their hobby into a job. In a way that would be kinda nice to get paid for a hobby. Then it’s not really a hobby anymore. Getting money from your interest is more intriguing though. It makes you feel more professional and people take you seriously. It’s more enjoyable to do something you’re interested in. I’m not as passionate as I should be about my interests but I know what I’m good at. I also know where I need to improve. I really need someone who believes in my abilities because if no one will, I’ll never get close to my wishes.
