Tennis is very fun! My lateral quickness is comparable to sludge, so, it would take all damn Winter to get in shape.

Do you have a lot of money? Ideally, you'd get into something that can also make you money.

Learn how to fix electronics and other minor services like that you can put ads on Craigslist and Backpage and charge for; things like unlocking phones (very simple), repairing Ipod/iPhone screens (also very simple), and spyware removal. Actually, I don't even know if it counts as a hobby because you can learn how to do all 3 of those things from scratch in a few hours.

You could become an obsessive bodybuilder or weight lifter, maybe take on online course from those degree factories on something you could use later in life like Culinary studies.

Spelunking.

Very popular hobby amongst Carmen Sandiego cohorts.

All of those are good suggestions, but I'm content with my financial situation right now. One thing I'd like to point out is that I want to try something completely foreign. I've been doing the "electronic" thing my whole life and it just seems completely boring to me now. I want nothing to do with it. No phones or spyware removal, or anything like that. Yes, I could make money, but it would just seem like I'm working rather than having fun, which is my intention.

List of things I've been thinking about for the past few months:

Buying a firearm and learning to shoot
Fishing
Paintball
learning the harmonica [blues harp!]

I'm buying a new high performance vehicle within the next 12 months, so that's pretty much checked off already. Many mods will be done as well, so I can't wait.

It wasn't something that really intrigued me. Probably because I was photographing punk teenagers and snot-nosed pre-schoolers.

yeah, some kid in town here was busted for child porn and that was at least part of it. THats what made me think of it.


also, as for blues harp, its pretty straightforward (basically its playing a harp in its relative minor, sometimes called cross-harp). Music could be good, especially if you have some friends/teacher you could go play/jam with. May I suggest the skinflute?
