The primary sends out a newsletter every month and in it, they spotlight one of the teachers. I was filling out a spotlight questionnaire on Sunday. The dreaded question came up. What are your hobbies? Hobbies? What are those? Oh, something you do it your free time. Free time? What is that?
Really. I hate that question. The first thing that came to mind was blogging. How lame is that? When I have free time, I spend it at the computer. What are my hobbies? Let's see...playing superheroes? Building train tracks? Pretending to be an astronaut on a mission to Mars? Certainly not. Love making? Perhaps, but it's a primary newsletter and besides, it's more than obvious. We had three kids in three years. If I had all the free time in the world, I'd go to school with out a question. But is going to school a hobby?
I think I ended up writing something like blogging, sewing and table setting. But it makes me sound really lame. And I'm only kind of lame. I wanted to lie and write that I was a skateboarder, a novelist and a professional chef. And that I'm training for my 12th marathon. And that I star on Broadway and teach college classes in my spare time. And spend my summers in South America working in orphanages. That I'm a world traveler and speak 8 languages. But no, I blog, sew and table set.
What do you all write? Does anyone have any really cool hobbies? Or any way to make my hobbies sound really cool?
One day, I plan to write something really cool when asked what are my hobbies. But for now, you can all thank me for choosing to blog in my spare time.
