Throughout my student life (still I am on journey), I have experienced the reality of filling out bunch of forms. Sometimes for attending a conference, jumping in another school, or starting a college etc. We have to fill forms of different types. Thanks to technology, we now also fill online forms/applications. However, there is one part that always kept me thinking and that is, “Your Hobby”. I always knocked my brain to go creative with this answer, and most of the time, I filled the option “Others”, writing my hobby that wasn’t listed in the form. And here I write this blog-post for the students who are trying to find what more can be done as a hobby.
Let’s now don’t go verbose, and jump in to our point!
I have noticed, much of the time when I had to and still have to fill the forms, the only repeated hobbies that I’ve detected in options are swimming, dancing, and collecting stamps, writing and few others.
Everyone has different taste of doing different work. So first and foremost the important task is to find out what you really want to do as your hobby, because you are giving your time and energy to that activity or art!
Here are few examples of what could be done in extra-time (if you have) (esp. when you are in mood to explore more stuff apart from routine-study time).
1- Hobbies in Tech-World (Blogging, Poetry Writing etc.)
Living in super speedy world, where from social media platforms to online book publishing websites have changed the way we used to think about technology. Hobbies are acts/doings that we perform when we have some time to be spent on such as the acts that we would like to do, but can’t perform or do in daily routine when we are super-saturated with routine tasks. If it can be swimming – it can be blogging too. If it can be listening to music – it can be participating in online writing contests too.
If writing is the corner you would like to explore or you want to stand as a professional in this corner in times ahead, you can think of blogging then.
There is poetry writing and a lot more that could be done online or offline. Later when you have loads of pages with your writings on it, there is an opportunity to compile all (online or offline) and turn it into a book!
If one really wants to spend time with pictures or likes capturing moments with camera lens, photography can be another option. May be then in summer or winter vacations, you can have your photographs- exhibition.
3- Voluntary Services
If you have skills, talents, potentials that you would like to share with others, try finding ways to help others then!
If being active, and doing physical work is your target – cycling could be an option!
If resource-management is your interest, engaging in Recycling activities could be taken in consideration.
It all depends on your interest – what you really want to be doing? (Think. Do. and Do.)
