Life can get pretty boring pretty fast when you have nothing to do all day while everyone else you know is off being productive at actual jobs. Get a hobby people will say if you tell them that you’re bored. Why don’t you go jump of a cliff I’ll (probably not) say (but I’ll be thinking it the entire time). What am I, 5? I don’t need a ‘hobby’! When you’re used to working and being productive, being told to find a hobby is akin to a condescending pat on the head by an annoying aunt. Even when you do find something to fill your day with, you probably will not want it referred to as a ‘hobby’. For some reason, that one simple little word manages to reduce anything and everything that you are doing to a simple childish pursuit instead of a grown up activity.
So no thank you, I don’t need a hobby to keep me busy. I’ll find something else to occupy my time with but I sure as hell won’t call it a ‘hobby’! And if you want to continue to not be dead, I’d suggest you don’t call it that either.
