Hobbies that you like

What is your favourite hobby to do?

I got a puzzle for Christmas and really enjoyed making it.

I am buying this one to do in the new year as we had this in hospital and I have good memories of all the other patients helping me build it (Even though one piece was missing!):

@ThePickinSkunk. Did I tell you about 50languages.com? Have you heard of a guy named Jeff Brown who is a Polyglot? There’s also Steve Kaufman. (He’s on YouTube under LingoSteve). What is your Target language right now? I can’t remember.

I can ID many local species but I must admit I have a heck of a time identifying hawks. Birding is a fun hobby.

I am considering restarting Latin. Possibly Spanish but Latin would be better to enhance my reading and writing skills. Not very useful otherwise though. How’s the Arabic coming?

It’s crazy hard but I’m picking it up little by little. There’s this new teaching method called TPRS. You can get some stuff on YouTube using this method. Like if you want to learn Spanish type in the YouTube search “Spanish TPRS”

My doctors office has a small table with a puzzle on and it’s meant for both adults and kids to do it.

That looks like a really fun puzzle.

Mine are collecting movies, listening to late night talk radio shows, reading books and graphic novels and collecting them, and collecting filmmaking equipment.

I’ve had a few hobbies since diagnosis. Most cost way too much money but recently I’ve been getting into Flames of War a New Zealand made WW2 miniatures game. Building 1/100th scale model tanks and stuff. Keeps me busy and it’s more historical game of what @Fanny_Longbottom is doing.

Computer games are big too as I can concentrate to play them but having some modelling is better for my eyesight for sure.
