    Coming to write my personal statement I've realised how darn boring I am and I would definitely like to take on a new hobby which is preferably inexpensive, fun, and will help me to stay in shape :p:
    At first I was thinking of joining a gym but that can't be much fun and I'm assuming it isn't much of a place for socialising, and then there's the cost. Martial arts have always appealed to me or dance classes...but I'm too scared :o:
    What do you do? What should I do? :woo:

    Edit: I forgot, I also want to meet some new people
    Same! I really really want to take dance classes but I think it's too late, and I'm scared :o:

    Hm, all the girls that dance at school are super-fit and mega-talented, so it's a bit off-putting! We should join together :P

    You could definitely write about that! It's a combination of dance, teamwork and gymnastics isn't it? And not so many people do it in the UK either.
    Incidentally, is it very physically challenging?
    It would be... if my squad was bigger again and did stunting For now we're too small to do stunting and just do gymnastics and dancing. Stunting is only performed at annual class things. But-it is true- it does absolutely KILL your arms if you're one of the unfortunate people at the side holding someone up and you don't balance your weight correctly or aren't supported enough by the rest of the team.

    Try Brazilian jiu jitsu?? toughest sport in the world (i would say that :p: ) but you'll get fit, have something to talk about, and REALLY REALLY be able to kick peoples arse's.

    Really? I heard trading card games such as pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh cards were the new craze.

    I recommend hiking and rock climbing. Then mountain climbing. Nothing beats it.

    You get to meet some really interesting and down-to-earth people if you stick to it long enough... you won't often come across someone arrogant either (as opposed to most other sports). Even the crazy tough people that have climbed... say, The Matterhorn are pretty decent. In my experience, anyway.

    It's difficult, exhausting and can take years to master but it's unbelievably rewarding and one of the most beautiful hobbies/sports out there.

    Back in the day, for sure. But stamp collecting has an extra edge, it breathes an air of danger. Like a shifty Dragon.

    guitar
    Why? It seems like everyone who likes music plays the guitar, so it's almost a given.

    Say you play a few-and-far-between instrument, like the balalaika.
