H - Hobby

My first attempt at Doodling :)

We all have hobbies, don't we? For some, it may be some sort of collections like coins or stamps, reading, painting, swimming and so on. A hobby can be defined as "an activity done regularly in one's leisure time for pleasure."

Reading, writing and blogging that had started off as hobbies for me quickly turned into a passion. Yes, I can't imagine a single day without reading or writing. As a kid, I used to love to draw. But like all things that happen as we grow up, it was soon forgotten, casually dismissed as being too childish by my grown up self.

And recently, all thanks to social media, I discovered something called as doodling. Now, the thing about drawing doodles is that anyone can do it. You need not have to be an expert, nor does the doodle have to be perfect. With that comfort in mind, I sat down one morning and with the help of YouTube, created the above doodle. How's it? :D

Learning something new is so much fun. And once I started doing it, I realized that I miss the thrill of learning and doing something new, unlike childhood days when we would jump in head first and think later when it came to any activity, for that matter. 

So, tell me, when was the last time you tried learning something new? Do you have any sort of unusual hobbies? Let me know!

P.S. I'm working on the remaining parts of Gouri (yesterday's post) in my head. Shall publish it soon, hopefully.

  5. Ah, your doodles are superb and my unusual hobby would be to sit and observe people. In fact at one time I wished that I had the power of invisibility to watch strangers go about their everyday life without noticing me :)

  15. That is good. Now from doodling try to graduate to Cartooning ! Drawing cartoons can be made really crisp if you can write nice captions too, which you can do very well. R K Laxman's cartoons were famous only because of their appropriate captions
