Challenge 18: Hobbies

Hello everybody. Apologize for missing the last week challenge. I just have forgotten and fallen asleep on the previous Sunday. The chosen theme to be written for this weekly article is a hobby. Hobby (hob·by) is noun define as an activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for pleasure. Based on this definition, honestly, my hobby is scrolling around social media. Hahahaha. However, the hobby that I thought I force my self to do is reading, gardening, sometimes cooking. But mostly, sleeping. Hahaha.

Reading is one activity that I fond to be done at least once a week. Because I kind of lost on the following day if I don’t read any book in a week. Reading is an energy charging for me. I do get confused and usually wearing a bad mood while I can’t make time to read any kind of book that unrelated to my work. The typical books I read are a classic book, a popular science book, self-empowering book. However, the list of book that I have been finished to read is so short. Among the books that I have read is booked by Ernest Hemingway, The old man and the sea. Following to Educated written by Tara Westover, Factfullness by Hans Rosling. I am in progress in reading Atomic Habits by James Clear. And I think the book will be my next favourite book. Also, I admire the books have been written by Pramoedya Ananta Toer, and Cantik Itu Luka by Eka Kurniawan. The books were beautifully written. I amazed by the way the author told the story and chose the words so satisfied the reader.

Another hobby I tried to do during the COVID-19 is gardening. Since I have enough free time at my home, I challenge my self to do gardening. And actually, It turns quite well to me. I planted tomatoes, spinach, chillies, sunflower, and other plants from the seeds! And it was so satisfying to see them grow day by day. However, I think I don’t want to cultivate the plants from the seed again. Because the obstacle is too much! I am not too patient for that. Hahaha. Still, gardening is giving me so many enjoyable and fun times. I plan to continue gardening the plants I bought available in the market. Hehehehe.

What about you, bodies?
What’s the activity you like to do in your leisure time?
