I have a lot of interests. I love books and reading is my chief hobby. I think if I could find a job where all I do is read all day, that would be heaven…until I actually got that job and then found a ton of stuff I didn’t like about it.
I also enjoy music and movies, comics, graphic novels, baking, sometimes cooking and sleeping. I used to really enjoy the great outdoors and do still like to hike when I have plenty of bug spray. My focus on interests varies, sometimes wildly, sometimes gradually, which makes me wonder if I will ever find something I won’t tire of before I finish it.
My latest focus is writing. I have stories in my head that I want to tell, but my chief worry is that originality is dead, e.g. someone has already told every story I have, only better. I may have distant dreams of fame and fortune, but I have few expectations of that sort.
Lastly, I think, I enjoy friends and family (sometimes), caring for others’ children, going to church Sundays and Wednesdays, playing with my cats and spending time with my husband. Let’s hope this is a positive outlet for me, that I won’t fall into the habit of using this forum as a way to complain about the little things that annoy me day to day.
