February 4th – Hobby

One-Minute Writer Prompt:
What hobby are others passionate about, that you can’t imagine wanting to do?

Stamp or coin collecting. While I can sort of see the attraction, I would find it far too monotonous and boring to do for my personal taste. I suppose it’s a good hobby for those who are obsessive compulsive, always wanting things in a certain order or what have you. That’s not to say that people who enjoy either hobby are obsessive compulsive, that is just my opinion or thinking on it. The hobby of collecting this or that is something I used to do with comic books. After a few years though, I got over it and decided while I love comics, the hobby itself required too much space and time, of which I had neither. I like to believe that anything you take on should be done fully and done right, so I now no longer collect anything really. Helps cut down on excess stuff in my home if nothing else.

  1. I feel the same way. Really, just about any collecting hobby seems that way to me. I know it works for some people, but I just don’t see the point in object accumulation for accumulation’s sake.

    I love having books, but I categorize that differently since I read them and, thus, get enjoyment out of them beyond the act of collection.
