Play Ball

A few months ago I was sitting with a friend enjoying a cup of coffee and gabbing the old aged tale of men. She was sharing stories with me know about someone she dated and had made a comment about how weird it was that he had no hobbies. I usually wouldn’t think anything of it, but in that moment I couldn’t help but think that I was weird! I had no hobbies. Of course, I couldn’t tell her that after what she said about her guy so I just made the typical “agreeable but annoyed” face and nodded my head in agreeance.

I went home and thought to myself, I gotta get me some hobbies! A week later, I joined Oxygen Yoga & Fitness and started going to 6 classes a week. A few weeks later I joined a book club and we’ve just finished our second monthly meeting. A month after that I joined a beer league softball team and last night we had our first game! We sucked so bad and we lost but we had a lot of fun. That’s the whole point right?

So the moral of this story is that I am no longer a weirdo because I have hobbies. Do you have hobbies or do you think it’s weird that one doesn’t?

Also, now that I’m a softball expert, it was only obvious that we shoot in this abandoned stadium that we found in Cloverdale. This outfit is also way more chic than the one I have to wear. (Note to Terence: Thanks for not ordering enough small sizes!!)

Play, ball!

    GO TEAM! Hobbies are my next step. Consider me in transition to hobbies… I think what happened somewhere between teenage years filled with hobbies, through studying, through starting a business, is that my hobbies became my business. And now they aren’t hobbies anymore, they’re work.
