    I just wanted to ask generally if anybody has ever tried a hobby that they didn't expect to be enjoyable but actually ended up sticking with it?

    I've tried a few hobbies in recent times and just can't seem to find one that I really enjoy! Would love a little inspiration.

    I don't know if working out is a hobby, I thought I wouldn't enjoy it but it's pretty enjoyable

    Going to see football matches. Not something I do often and I'm not a die-hard fan, but as someone who went to a school where a lot of people were interested in it and it never seem to interest me, I was pleasantly surprised at how... good it is to be there. It also gives me an excuse to travel to Europe if a team I like is playing in a european competition, and I've already seen a few nice countries thanks to that.

    The only thing I'm good at is procrastinating and switching between the same 3 apps for hours

    knitting! I learnt it so I could include it in my art project, and it turns out that it's so fun

    I've recently bought some brush pens and I'm playing about with lettering and calligraphy. Really enjoying it!

    Sucking toes yummy

    Playing Poker
