I feel that if you spend time doing the above activities then at least you have something to show for it. Meanwhile the type of passive things I do make it seem like I'm just a lazy-arsed time-wasting biatch.
- Listening to music
- Obsessing over Karen Carpenter
- Mindless web surfing and Facebook scrolling
The only one that is actually helpful in life is doing aerobics. Yet somehow I never seem to look or act like those annoyingly perky and ripped aerobics instructors. Weird.
Out of all of those desired hobbies I potentially could become interested in cooking. After all, I do love food and eating. It's just that there is a certain level of organisational skill and multi-tasking that is necessary. I do not possess these attributes. Hello, self-diagnosed ADD. The internet doesn't lie, does it?
I have made some tasty chicken soup recently and some other Weight Witchy stuff. But what I really like is: CAKIES.
However, I won't take up baking. Because if I did bake cakes then I would eat them. ALL of them. I couldn't stop at one. The only way I can avoid temptation is to never have the temptation there in the first place.
What else was I going to say?
Did I mention that I think I have ADD?
Anyway, what I was going to say before I lost my train of thought was, I basically still like all the same things I liked when I was 12. It's comforting to know I haven't matured beyond a tween. On the other hand, I liked Nanna music (Carpenters), so maybe I was just a really mature 12 year old? Yeah, it must be that. Ahead of my time. Wisdom beyond my years and all that. Yep, totally that.
Today I was actually supposed to be talking about vlogs. (A vlog is a video blog for the uninitiated). Specifically if I've ever made one. I haven't. Which is interesting, since I call blogging my hobby. I didn't say I was actually any good at any of these hobbies, did I?
The reasons I've never vlogged are simple:
- I don't know how.
- I'm shy.
- I don't speak much above a whisper.
- I wouldn't know what to talk about.
- I'm strikingly beautiful and it would just make everyone jealous.
It's possible that I made the last one up. Using possible in the sense of totally clear. Just so we're...um, clear.
However, I will put vlogging on my list of things to do in an attempt to push myself out of my comfort zone and blogging rut.
Not that these posts of me rambling on about nothing aren't totally fascinating and entertaining. Pffffft. Of course they are! It's just that I could mix it up a bit. I could verbally ramble on a video for a change. As soon as I have a personality transplant. To say I'm not particularly chatty in person is a slight understatement. Using slight in the sense of... Um, whatever the opposite of slight is. Huge?
But getting back to hobbies. I've never been good at any of those desirable hobbies or skills because I'm a daydreamer. It's not very handy when you're off with the pixies and a ball darts by your vacant face. For some reason, team mates become incensed. Can't think why. It's only a game. Sniff.
Which leads me to another point. I don't really like any sort of games. Sport games, card games, board games, PS4, XBox, and just games, really. And although I'm a Facebook fan, I don't do Candy Crush or Farmville or any sort of Ville. (Yes, I'm still in Boganville, but shhhhhh, don't tell anyone). No games for this girl.
Maybe I really am just totally anti-social? Who knows? I'm definitely not the competitive type. So I don't really have any intense urge to win or see the point of it all. Shrugs.
When it comes to gardening, I think I'm more of an indoors person. In fact I went outside into the sun yesterday, blinking and confused by the brightness. I should probably get out more.
As far as sewing goes, I guess I'm just too impatient and again, inclined to daydream. There was also the infamous Sewing Of The Finger Incident Of 1983 when I was in Year 7. I think it hurt, from my vague memory. Plus, I've always been totally spoiled and pampered by my Mum who rocks the whole cooking and sewing thing. There was no need to do it myself. Ahem.
But it's all good because I can read, write and blog like a boss. Am I right? Rhetorical question. Please don't answer. I'm also very good at
I also know the lyrics to every Carpenters song ever recorded and every intricate detail of Karen Carpenter's life right down to her autopsy report. Yes, I'm deranged. This is baffling because when it comes to celebrities and celebrity gossip I have zero interest. In fact, I have no idea who half of the modern day celebrities and recording artists even are. Did I mention I'm weird?
Okay, this weirdo is done here for now.
Linking up for I Must Confess, Open Slather and Mummy Mondays.
Have you ever vlogged? Which hobbies do you wish you enjoyed?
