Everyone probably has hobbies and interests to keep themselves preoccupied and entertained. Some like arts and crafts (knitting, quilting, collecting mementos) while others enjoy outdoor activities (like hiking, running, playing sports, etc.). My life is pretty simple. Watching my favorite TV shows is a huge part of what I do on weeknights. I'm not really into reading books, but I like to read a variety of magazines. I also like social networking and surfing the web whenever I have my laptop/tablet/smartphone with me. I work out on my elliptical machine almost every day of the week to try to stay fit. On weekends the most fun I usually have is eat out with family or friends. I don't do shopping as much as I used to. I'm going to be on a very tight budget the next few months and will probably do even less shopping and dining out. From time to time, I visit places like the Embarcadero in San Francisco, and on special occasions, I go clubbing with family members. You can tell I don't have much of a social life, but that's all right, since I'm a hopeless introvert. What say you? What do you do for fun? Addendum: Going to the movies has gotten more and more expensive over the years, and lately I have gone less frequently than I used to. I do try to catch some new movie releases on Vudu.
