Week #41: Hobbies.
I absolutely love reading. Books give me so much joy! I love the fact that I’m able to read almost every night before I go to sleep. I have quite a personal library that runs from my childhood to the present, but I also love libraries!
Writing is another hobby. I’ve been writing since I was 10 years old. I do regret throwing away a lot of my old journals. However, I did keep the blue binder, covered in stickers from doctor’s offices and gifts. Those have both handwritten and typed stories from fifth grade through high school. Who knows, you may see some of them here on the blog.
Last year, I restarted my hobby of American Girl dolls and books. It took off like wildfire. I have more dolls, clothes, shoes, and accessories now more than ever. Al is helping me design and build a custom doll cabinet for my office.
Those three are my main hobbies. But, I also love traveling, photography, cooking, playing computer games, riding my bike, playing softball, trivia, and spending time in nature. I love using my camera, and I’m learning how to take better photos with mu phone. I would love to be on a softball team again. Eventually, I would love to have the Carmen Sandiego games, and the Roller Coaster Tycoon games on my computer – So many awesome memories! I also enjoy watching game shows – Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! will always be my favorites.
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
Awesome post! I never got into American Girl Dolls but I know lots of people who do! I would LOVE to one day read some of your work! Do you think you’ll publish a book one day?
Thank you so much. I had no idea how many people love American Girl, until I found the Facebook groups and boards for buying, selling, trading, and sharing. It’s a huge community. I have some of my work on the blog already – Look up “Writing Wednesdays” in the search. That’s the start of three novels. I did National Novel Writing Month in 2012, 2013, and 2014. I certainly hope to publish a book – I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was 10. Thanks for your support and encouragement – It means so much to me!
Wonderful! Thank you for the information; I’m definitely going to check them out! Well, I will definitely read your novel when you end up publishing one 🙂
You’re welcome. Thank you so much! I’m trying to finish my 2012 endeavor at the moment – 11,000+ words and counting!
