I am guessing that every single human being on this planet has a hobby or something that they really like doing / having.
Since their births, Gigi loves the internet & Buggy is addicted to his computer games. Daddy is into IT & technology stuff. Mummy is obsessed with fengshui which she surfs on the internet. Dear God, my entire family members are geeks.
As for my closest friends, they also have rock solid hobbies. Mello loves reading fantasy books (not the erotic kind, you perverted minds) that involves magic & dragons & hobbits, kind of like Lord of The Rings sort of genre. He would sometimes read self-help books & share his knowledge with me if it was interesting.
Hong is into body building.
My bf plays with balls (sounds so wrong, but right at the same time) – football, basketball, snooker/pool, etc.
Me? I don’t think I ever had a hobby that I really enjoy doing. And when I fill up application forms that needed me to state down my hobbies, my mind will draw a blank. Is sleeping a hobby? What about lazing in bed & not moving a muscle? But still I will write down “swimming, surfing internet & watching TV“.
Do I really go swimming? Not really, I just swim a few laps & lie down on the sunbed to tan. But I don’t think it’s appropriate to put down Tanning as a hobby. =\
Then as I grow older and more freckles appear on my face, I stopped baking myself under the sun & I changed Swimming to Reading. I figured that if I still put down Swimming, people will wonder why my skin is so fair & I probably have to tell a white lie like “oh i do indoor swimming”. Oh really, where? (-_-) So many questions to answer & the white lie grows bigger as I have to think of a place with an indoor swimming pool. So troublesome. Reading is more convenient. If they ask me what I read, I will tell them any book by Richard Laymon, which will be true as I have read all his books. Or I will steal some of that knowledge that Mello shared with me on previous occasions, which I don’t think is lying because I have also ‘read’ the self-help book, except that it is by listening to parts of it.
Surfing internet is not really a hobby of mine, unless you’re talking about Facebook / emails / etc. I don’t even YouTube. When I was in school, I hated research. Each time we had to do a group project, researching materials will never be my job because I never have the patience to get it done. I absolutely hate looking for things. It ups my stress level a lot.
Even in my daily life, I know exactly where every personal item is because I never misplace them so that I never have to go all over the house looking for my stuff. When somebody borrows my stuff but does not put it back into its original spot & I have to look for it, my irritation & anger can reach rocket-high levels in a matter of 2 seconds. It’s like… *realizes that my pen is not on my desk* (1 second)… where the hell is my pen? (2 seconds)…. WHO TOOK MY BLOODY PEN?!?!?! WTF @#$^*#$^!&$(%^!#@*(&*!!!!!!!!!!
That leaves Watching TV as the only one true hobby that I have in my life. But it will not be a good idea to state it as my ONLY hobby, especially if it is a job application, right? I figured that it will be more impressive to add in a sporty hobby (swimming) or an intellectual hobby (reading).
Oh and one thing that I have always been interested in, but never had a chance to do, is making my own stuff. Like making my own hair clips with those Swarovski crystals or cute little candy ribbons & stuff. Or a dress that I designed on my own. Or my home-made deodorant using shea butter, baking powder, etc. Or concocting my own body moisturizer using cocoa butter & my own special blend of essential oils.
For now, the only thing that I make on my own is my facial mask. I use either raw honey / manuka honey or rhassoul clay / dead sea mud & blend it with hydrosols / essential oils & a little bit of serum or even some fresh lemon juice / cucumbers / tomatoes / etc. It is super fun & I can make the facial mask according to what my skin needs at that moment.
When I have more time on my hands, I will attempt to make my own deodorant.
In the meantime, I just found this new TV series called Haven. It is like a combination of Fringe & Heroes. It is pretty interesting. I shall go veg out on the couch now.
And I think I shall file this post under About Berry Mii because it IS about me.
