Over the last year I've collected many hobbies and mastered nothing. On top of paintball, which I've been:

Playing bass guitar... got a cheap Ibby that I love to death. Me owning a bass is about as far as I've gotten. Can play some riffs from different things, mostly just make noise.

Unicycle... got a unicycle for free off a friend. Fallen off that a few times. That's about as far as I've gotten there. Found out the unicycle I have is best suited to someone who is about 5'6" which may indicate why it seems very difficult for me to ride.

Sewing... mostly to repair outdoor/paintball gear. Kept ripping the left cargo pocket off of my favorite (only) pair of fatigues. Fixed holes in backpacks, added straps to things, made a foam mowhawk, reattached the elastic to my ronin gear stock class harness. In defense of my masculinity I would like to point out that I am not GOOD at sewing in the slightest. It's pretty Frankenstein.

Failing courses... kinda made a hobby out of that. Gotta be the most expensive of my new hobbies.

Sewing? Nice! Nothing like a man who sews!

And I think men can be a pretty expensive hobby too.

I need to find cheaper hobbies. I play paintball (summer), shoot highpower rifle (haven't in a bit though), and try and do run'n gun pistol stuff. For all my shooting I reload, so that takes up bunch of time.

Sweet deal! Glad to hear it. My only issue with having a job is how much time they take away from hobbies.

Thankfully I only really run 2 hobbies at a time.... Fishing my seasonal/unemployment hobby (Haven't fished in almost a year), paintball is kinda all year (again, haven't played in almost a year), travelling (100% full time life right now), photography (nothing else to do while travelling LOL)....

Time to go do something productive.... like switch countries or go walking in the mountains again...
