I am looking for inspiration and ideas. I am the kind of person who likes to be busy. Relaxing is boring after a while. Having started chemo, I lost the two biggest things that filled my day: work and school. Now the problem is that I have nothing to do. Nothing. Stareat the walls all day. My mind is going crazy.
I did try a google search for hobbies, but I came up with fairly boring things like scrapbooking and stamp collecting.
I need a project. Any ideas?
Do you like crafty stuff? How about embroidery? You can do fun home things and gifts when you end up with tons of stuff. There are some great sites out there with good patterns. My mom used to do that because it required concentration, but little movement. She said it passed the time well when she was in bed a lot. I got into it over the past year or so and made a ton of tea towels, embroidered on aprons, and made napkins for holiday gifts.
Do you like reading? When I'm sick or injured that's my absolute favorite past time. I don't know what kind of books you like, but I really enjoy things that suck me in for hundreds of pages at a time. I'm about to reread Elizabeth Kostova's "The Historian," which is a nice long book about the historical/mythical Dracula. (I highly recommend if you enjoy that type of story.)
I've been reading and watching a lot of things around Anthropology. It's been connecting some dots between humans from 10,000 years ago and today...it's a more complete look at Paleo for me and really understanding what are actual "old world foods".
Did I mention it's free?
I took up beading a few winters ago. Beading is popular here in Alaska. I have friends who make some of the beads I have used. My wife likes making greeting cards. Where we are located, the long winter requires some hobby to keep cabin fever away.
Most places have a JoAnne's or Michael's or other hobby/craft store. Perusing the aisles might lead to something too.
