    I'm applying for a sixth form and one of the questions it asks is "What are your hobbies?". Soon as I saw that, I was like R.I.P

    I don't really have any hobbies, I'm boring like that. I just like to binge watch shows. However, that can't be said. Thus, my mortal brain is stuck? Suggestions on what to write?? Would be much appreciated!!

    Reading, and then pick some books (make sure you at least partially know said plot of books!) maybe. Say you run? Hard to 'disprove' such a hobby

    Reading, film and cinema, keeping up with current affairs etc are all valid interests as long as you don't just say 'I like to sit and binge watch netflix and eat pizza' you'll be fine.

    Hate questions like that. I would just make stuff up. (Said reading. Then the teacher said what books. So just said some books.)

    Thank you for these suggestions - I am one of the people who do not really read a lot but I could say something around running or Film/Cinema, thank you ^_^
