Many of you know that I have a wide range of interests, and I often switch them out to keep life interesting (see what I did there? Haha!).
I love variety, both in what I spend my time doing, as well as the posts I write on this blog; I don’t like for anything to fall into habit or go along with any kind of schedule; I like to spice things up. 🙂
Sometimes, I find myself feeling bad for not continually doing any one hobby, but it’s just part of who I am, and as long as it doesn’t cost lots of money or hurt anyone (obvious reasons), I don’t think there’s a thing wrong with that.
Drawing Comic Strips
This seems like a funny one to start with, as I’ve never talked about my love for this activity until right now, haha! But, alas, this shall be the first thing on my list. When I was twelve, I drew a short comic strip about a cute jumping spider named Bob while doing an art project. Since then, I’ve filled at least two notebooks with the adventures of Bob and his friends, enjoying learning the art of funny facial expressions and scene props. The comics range from three-panel strips to full-page spreads; they always make me smile when I go back and read them.
When I was fourteen, I learned how to use different photo editing apps to filter photos (change brightness, add texture, etc.), make picture collages, and the mysterious art of masking (it’s kind of hard to explain, so please forgive me). Most, if not all, of the photos on my blog have been edited – usually, I’ve brightened the photo a bit to make it as bright and cheerful as possible. 🙂
Watching YouTube videos
I absoutely love watching challenges, ASMR sounds and roleplays, official lyric videos (especially Let Me Love You and Phoenix), comedian skits, ‘Try Not to Laugh’ animal Vines, and anything else I come across that is clean and either hilarious or relaxing.
Writing blog posts
I’m either scratching around for good material to write and share with you guys, or I’m struggling to juggle these blogging challenge posts and everything else I like to put up in a week! There’s too much, or too little; no in between. Regardless, I love coming up with posts whether I’m deeply inspired, or not. 🙂
Watching TV shows w/ my family
Home Improvement, I Love Lucy, Gilligan’s Island, and probably others that I can’t think of right now (haha!). I love family shows; they’re so refreshing to watch. I usually stick to old TV shows, like Leave It To Beaver or The Andy Griffith Show, as well. 🙂
Most recently, it’s been from an adult coloring book that I got, and I’m coloring them with the 40-set pack of fine tip markers that my dad got me. 🙂 I’ve always preferred coloring over drawing, as I’m much better at that than sketching.
Since January of this year, I’ve loved trying new recipes – especially ones that might look intimidating at first! From pretzels to donut holes, I like breaking the mold of traditional baking and taking risks.
Whether that’s composing a blog post, a journal entry, or working on the draft of a novel, I’ve loved writing since I was eight years old, and reading for even longer than that!
