A bit sexist to say “World of Warcraft”, don’t you think?

trogdor_87's avatar

camping, video games, reading, and some times travel.

BronxLens's avatar

The definition of hobby includes games, so looks like playing World of Warcraft qualifies as a hobby.

Mine include collecting photography books, indipendent studios DVDs and myth-related tchotkes.

I’ve tried my hand at many things, but currently I build harps (like this one), other misc. wood stuff, and pottery. I have a strong drive to make stuff, so I gravitate to hobbies that yield some tangible product.

May I direct those of you who take issue with my sexism and restrictive definition of “hobby” to this question:

Was trying to establish a fair parallel.

Photography, reading more about the likes of Russia and nuclear energy, listening to music – lots of it and very little else. I lack any sporting hobbies, although I wouldn’t mind getting into squash and I also wouldn’t mind getting into table tennis and/or chess.

@nikipedia

I don’t think the hobby “shopping” even compares to “World of Warcraft”. Many women DO shop as a hobby. Probably less than 1% of men play World of Warcraft.

I’m not sure if shopping or gaming should count as hobbies (they wouldn’t be very original or creative ones anyway), but the more one party “games” (can you use that terminology?), the more the other will shop….my shoe collection is coming along nicely!

I’m feeling lazy, so I’m just going to link to my profile.

Guitar, working out, and drinking should count.

judochop's avatar

to say that video games are not creative is wrong. It is a strong bobbie of mine to play online with friends. On top of it being one of the most played hobbies in the world second to sports. Have you tried to play one or any of the new games? It is not easy.
Also included with my hobbies are: photography, art, my car and bike, BBQ, and vodka tastings.

I play Ultimate Frisbee 3–4 times a week. Travel to tournaments every month or so – going to Seattle (from SF) in July for a 100-team tourney.

I also follow baseball and play fantasy baseball. Occasional video games. Does Facebook count as a hobby?

And does personal growth count as a hobby? I regularly go to workshops, read books, attend groups, give coaching, receive coaching, etc.

El_Cadejo's avatar

Video games or anything else thats tech related really. I know drinking doesnt count, but how about smoking mass amounts of marijuana, if so, thats definitely a hobby of mine. ^_^ I also enjoy watching movies and well of course FLUTHER.

buster's avatar

I skateboard, fish, hike, and take my golden retriever on fetched out adventures. I got a few other hobbies but they are way too weird to mention.

robmizelldotcom's avatar

reading, photography (even though that is a career as well). That’s really about it at the moment. I always dabble around in things though, so I’m not that bad of a person.

whatthefluther's avatar

I collect Native American jewelry, geodes, display specimens of minerals, rocks, fossils and semiprecious stones, writing instruments, Murano glass, cobalt glass and crystal, art glass figurines, carved stone figurines, clocks and watches, neon signs and all types of art with a particular nod to bronze statues. I’ve also become rather adept at repairing all the above stuff that occasionally breaks and am a self taught stone carver (mostly unique pipes of pipestone, alabaster, soapstone, etc). I also have several pets and lots of fruit trees that keep me very busy.
