To occupy oneself

Chrissy was right.
I do need a hobby.

Reading only lasts so long. As does the internet. As previously commented, writing does need to happen more often. But I need to find another, dusty corner of my brain and cultivate that.
I have occasionally considered getting off a few bus stops early on one of the routes I take to pop into a piano store and borrow a Steinway for a half hour or something. Seems awkward, but maybe they wouldn’t mind? I don’t suck, although I haven’t played in a while so it would have to be something sloww.

Cooking/baking I suppose is an option – on the weekends at least. I can’t see myself being willing to devote that chunk of time to a loaf of sugary goodness after I get home from work. And I do cook a legit meal, usually once a week (half the time it lasts me the whole week).

I could continue organizing my plethora of photos.
Maybe I should work out every day (it is a nice goal, even aside from looking for things to occupy me).

Listening to music but often something I just do passively. I’m enjoying Cocoon right now. They’re rather different.

  1. When you mentioned that about the piano…I was reminded of that movie “Once.” They managed some very romantic moments on a borrowed piano…and the manager had a free performance to show his customers.

    • Aw, don’t feel bad! 🙂 It seriously was awesome and totally perfect lol. And never for a second did I take offense at it – seriously the first time I saw it I literally lol’d right away and completely agreed haha 😀
