Today’s post is going to be a bit on a lighter note, although I am pretty certain I am not ready to stop talking about politics in the foreseeable future. I am linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for Friday Five 2.0 Linkup.
I am a person of many interests. It’s really hard for me to choose just one or two hobbies. I’ve been that way as long as I can remember. I’ve always wanted to try and do everything. I still do. Therefore at any given moment, I feel like there are sports/activities I wish I had time for. I randomly pick and prioritize things, but I always wish I had time to do more.
Here are 5 activities I wish I had (more — or any for that matter) time for:
1. Softball — as I mentioned in my last Friday Five post, I used to play softball in Germany. I loved it and I kinda miss it – but I know that even a just-for-fun softball team would require a major chunk of my time, which I am not able (or willing?) to set aside right now. Maybe some day.
2. Tennis — I also used to play tennis (on a team) in Germany. I have my racket here, but not really anybody to play with… and honestly, I haven’t held the racket in such a long time that I am afraid I would have to start over learning how to play.
3. Letter writing — I still write the occasional letter, but ever since adulthood and the Internet came along, I have done it significantly less (and that makes me sad). Blogging has in a way taken the place and I love blogging, but I also wish I had more time to write actual letters.
4. Playing the piano — my piano is sitting at my parents’ house and it’s not something I could easily pack up and bring with me to California. A couple of years ago, my then-neighbor lend me her keyboard that was sitting in her closet, so I had access to that for a while and while I loved it, I hardly played as often as I wanted to, because time. Sigh.
5. Photography — I love taking photos, always have. I was the person that always lugged her camera around, who people told to put the camera away, but later asked for the pictures. Yes, yes, the best memories are in your head, but there is nothing like a picture that will trigger that memory. I wish I could dedicate more time to actual photography (using my DSLR), but I guess having my iPhone + Instagram is at least something.
What activities would you like to do more often?
