So I’m looking for a new hobby. Maybe I’m growing up. Maybe I’m just bored… again. But I’m looking for something I can do that is actually productive.
I took up baking bread, which I still enjoy, but is kind of a hurry up and wait thing. I’m looking for more of an active, but laid back… wait that doesn’t make sense. Let me put it this way.
My wife crochets. So she can sit on the couch, watching a movie, and at the same time, she’s creating something beautiful and functional. I don’t want to crochet, but I do want to do something like that. I’m not worried about the beautiful part. But I would like it to be useful.
Oh, and the picture? I installed Ubuntu Linux on the laptop. So far I’m liking it, though running games through Wine is a bit rough, since its not the most powerful laptop. Amazing though how its footprint is so small, it boots and shuts down so fast and, in general, works really well. Sure I’ve sworn at it, that’s just growing pains. I’m really starting to like it. But teaching yourself Linux is not a hobby. I wish.
So, please share your thoughts, you brave few who venture here.
