Writing about my hobbies has become my brand. Some call themselves food writers and film critics, but I’ve found myself content in a world of hobbies. Yes, niche, but paradoxically vast. See, I love my hobbies. Because the idea of devoting yourself to something without expectations is probably the most liberating experience we’re allowed to have as people in 2023. There are also infinite elements that make up an endlessly complex identity. But enough about me. If you’re looking to explore your abilities and curiosity and develop yourself deeper this season, get started now. Please kickstart.
