    I literally do nothing in my spare time. I play candy crush and refresh TSR over and over again. I need some hobbies but i'm not a sporty person so the majority of hobbies are out of the window.

    I went go karting once and it was fun but that's like £30 for a few goes around the track. I also like flying but that's like £7k just for lessons/licence, then £200+fuel to hire a plane for an hour.

    Who can suggest some cheaper hobbies? (That hopefully I can find some friends in)

    I recommend learning an instrument. It's so rewarding when you can just pick up an instrument and play ^_^

    You can write random stories and and join sites like Fanfiction, DevianArt, etc (I swear I've written this exact same line as a response to someone else). Or you can start your own blog full of your daily escapades. Or start jogging (you don't have to be sporty to do this and can run with a buddy)

    Why don't you do some volunteering? Granted, it's not a hobbie but it gives you something to do, you meet lots of great people, and it gives you some experience.

    When I think volunteering I think helping out in old stinky charity shops. Is there more to it than that?

    Haha, don't knock it! Charity shops are actually a lot cleaner and organised than people think and it was really nice when I went for a six month stint with Arthritis Research UK. It was well-ordered, all the clothes were clean, toys and etc were only sold if they were complete and in good condition, and the displays looked really good.

    The customers were generally really polite, quite young, too, as I'd just expected elderly people, and you could have a conversation with them rather than feeling rushed.

    That said, you can volunteer at dogs' homes, you can help the elderly, at your local hospital, library (where I'm at now) or at a school.
