    Default Hobbies?

    What hobbies do you guys have?

    Working from home at the moment and I have quite a bit of free time now.

    Was working, travelling and commuting loads last year and then girlfriend stuff just claimed most of the rest of the time. Now I work from home and have split with the girlfriend.

    Work is pretty quiet and even then working from home gives me loads more time with no commute or travel.

    I've been doing a bit of bar work couple of evenings a week, studying for a certification (the 70-431 SQL exam), going to the gym, reading, watching films, and boozing it up with mates on weekends. The hangovers after a big saturday night are killer though so want to cut down on the last one.

    So what kind of stuff do you do/can you recommend? Just looking for some interesting stuff to fill the new found free time and enjoy life.

    I post on internet forums as a female who gets excited by middle aged IT geeks.

    It's a pretty niche area I know but I just love the attention.

    Well, strangling animals, golf and masturbating.

    Spending 3 hours a day on the motorway does not give me much time - mind you, I could spot Eddie Stobbart lorries!

    When time permits I like to do a counselling shift on a helpline. Really reccomend this as a way to enjoy a hobby, and gain good people skills that can help with work.
