My 12 Most Favorite Fun Activities

One of the personality traits that I inherited from my Dad is – I can’t stay idle. It takes herculean effort for me to sit at one place and do nothing. I am always upto something. Like a machine. I even tried meditating once, but as the fate may be, in my mind I could see words being typed, about a story I had planned to write. {facepalm}

If you are bored and looking for some new hobby, here’s a list of my 12 most favorite fun activities. I hope you find something of your liking.

1) Travel Photography
Travel-bug bit me when I was little. Dad had a transferable job, so I got to live in different parts of India. I never fail to brag about the fact that I have changed 9 schools (no I wasn’t kicked out πŸ˜› ) Today I enjoy being a travel blogger and photographer.This Twinkle Eyed Traveller loves to capture the essence of a city through words and lens. Facebook Page.

2) Paper Craft
3D Quilling and 3D Origami – It’s amazing how a piece of paper can be transformed into something so creative and beautiful. Ever tried paper quilling!! Go for it, you gonna love it.
I share my paper pagalpan at The Art of Folding a Paper.

3) Reading
Ebooks are for train-reading, standing-in-long-queue-reading and awkward-situation-acting-busy-reading. Paperbacks for night-reading, (killing cockroaches and showcasing handmade bookmarks) There’s always something for every occasion. πŸ™‚

4) Writing
Whether I am kicking my own a$$ through anecdotes or publishing tear-jerking short fictions, writing is my passion. Not just digitally, but in journals and diaries too. Am I vain when I say that I love the curves of my handwriting? πŸ˜›

5) Nail Art
I am crazy about nail polish and nail art. I change them every week, a chipped nail irks me like the sound-of-sandpaper-against-the-wall. Here’s a glimpse of my Chronicles of messy nails.
6) Hiking/Bushwalking
On sunny summer weekends, along with my hubby, I love going on long coastal walks, bush walking, hiking and exploring the nature. Keeps my body fit and mind fresh.


7) Sudoku
Can’t read a newspaper without finishing the Sudoku section. It’s addictive and I do it because it makes me feel intelligent πŸ˜› well one needs proof sometimes, you know!! πŸ˜›
8) Shape Poetry
Girl, moon, pendulum or flowers – I love arranging my poetry in the shape of the subject. They are the highlight of my poetry blog


9) Dancing
It’s been a long long time since I have been up on stage, but the passion never dies. Ever since I saw the Nagada song, I am dying to master those steps. Not to forget that it’s an awesome workout too.
10) Zentangle
This is a fairly new hobby which I am working on after being inspired by Kathy and Laurel‘s beautiful creations. Here’s two of my messed up doodles.

 
11) Workout
I am a lazy foodie, who constantly needs a nudge – like a new dress that no longer fits, to make run around the park like a crazy-woman-with-a-mission. I love working out in the confines of my living room, mixing youtube videos of Jillian and some power workouts.
12) Cooking
I am a disaster-maker in the kitchen, but unfortunately, that never stopped me!! I even started baking recently, which by the way is no good πŸ˜› But I can dish out a delicious egg curry and creamy white pasta πŸ˜€

  1. Ok, I am officially jealous. πŸ˜‰ That is an awesome list. I love your work. So much multitasking and multi talented.
    I am requesting you for a guest post too. A letter with the details shall follow.
    Amazing list. All I have done is think about doing the tangles… need some action.

  2. The activities are truly fun! Nice list, Rajlakshmi πŸ™‚
    Am yet to try Zentangle. Had seen them in Kathy's Blog.
    Your maiden attempts are creative! Go for it πŸ™‚

  3. That is a great list, we share quite a few common interests!! I'd like to try my hand at paper quilling too, though I have no idea how to make the time for it!

  4. Just reading this energized me. so many activities balancing the indoors and the outdoors. Great! Some 5 years ago, even i found it difficult to sit at a place for a while and meditation did'nt even figure on my list. Now ofcourse, i have become a pro at meditation, a few moments i get, i sit down to focus on my breath. Meditation will work wonders on creative minds like you.

  5. I loved reading your list! We enjoy a lot of the same things although I have to admit I have never figured out how to do those sudoku puzzles. Maybe you could explain it to me sometime??? Thank you for the mention here. I loved your art! It is amazing. Keep it up! β™₯
