How many hobbies have you tried?

I want to somehow share all the wonderful things one can learn when you try a new hobby or craft, but that task sounds a bit daunting so instead…

A LIST, of all the hobbies I’ve tried in my lifetime. I’m really surprised how many I’ve tried at least once. Only a few I have never heard of before, many I simply don’t bother with because I have no interest or the cost is prohibitive. Try doing this yourself! It’s great to have a list to come back to whenever you feel bored, then you can remember that’s boredom is really a choice.

Note: A lot of things that I’ve tried when I was much younger I’d like to come back to again and re-explore. Things with zero interest have been crossed out.

New Zine: Joodie

I just finished my first issue of my perzine called Joodie. I’m really nervous about sharing it because some of it is kind of personal. I’m hoping to do more than one issue, but if you know me at all you know I can be a little flakey on long term projects. Maybe I’ll have time to make one more this summer, but when school starts again in the fall I can’t make any promises. The first issue is about my decision to go to art school, little tricks that might help other people thinking about going to art school, and some journal entries I made before school started. It’s quarter-sized, 24 pages, black and white, staple bound.

First issue of Joodie zine.
