Topical Tropical Trinity

Season 1 – Week 3

Question Fun Directory

Topical Tropical Trinity questions are about your interests, your passions, your hobbies and activities and about living your life in general.

Each weekly game will have a fixed ‘subject’ and ask you two basic questions – and one three fold question.

Q.1

Do you have any hobbies, activities or past times that keep you busy daily or weekly?

As a child l used to have lots of hobbies – l was never bored or short of stuff to do … l just kept myself busy all the time! As l have gotten older, my hobbies have lessened off in so far as quantity to the age l am now and l have to think hard about my hobbies and what they are…

Gardening .. is that a hobby or a past time or an activity? I always get confused. Gaming as in online gaming – although l only do if l am lucky an hour a night now.  Reading is that a hobby? I guess so, l seem to spend my entire life reading in one format or another these days. Writing … again, is that a hobby? if it is, it’s one of the main ones … but l get confused as to whether reading, writing and blogging are hobbies or activities. If they are done together then is it just one hobby as in blogging – that ‘s the potential hobby.

I am involved in several activities that keep me busyin one way or another for most of each given week.

Q.2

Have any of your current hobbies been with you since you were a youngster?

Not many … reading and writing are about the only two which are constant in my life, those two have been with me since l first started to read with my mother at about four or five, and then by myself at seven, and my writing for myself began at around 11 or 12. That’s really about it as far as childhood hobbies are … of course l had fascinations with things that are still fascinations today … like military history, animals and sharks and spooky and creepy shit … those things still have an allure for me.

Although when younger l was an extremely avid wargamer albeit back then – tabletop sandbox with plastic soldiers in comparison to today when l am still a gamer, just online.

Q.3

Why do you think people need to have ‘hobbies?’

To stop them from becoming bored, to keep their brains and bodies active, to make some extra money, to relieve stress and frustration as well as to provide entertainment and stress relief.

How long do you spend weekly with your hobby?

If gardening is a hobby as opposed to a past time then l am currently spending quite a bit of time with the garden. With the approaching season after such a horrible winter – l find that l am playing a constant game of catch up. Once all the seeds are sown and the successions start and the seedlings are transplanted and the garden is starting to grow for the spring and summer months, l can relax a bit.

I am reading non-stop anyway every spare minute l have during the day – but most of my reading is not sat at my desktop but with Kindles or iPads for business courses and so sure, l am reading, but by the time l get to presonal reading, l am mostly shattered.

I am still writing, and reading for most of the given week – but if l had to put numbers to things then l guess; online gaming is about an hour a day usually late at night,  reading is all day every day each day for roughly 4 hours daily, writing is for around 4 daily, gardening can range between 3 – 6 hours daily pending the weather. It’s hard to quantify time  like this as it is also intermingled with business study and working – l am trying to work to a new 3 – 8 day and l am getting better at it, but as said, it is very hard to quantify.

Are there hobbies you currently don’t do but would like to?

For the first time in my life l can actually answer this question with a resounding … NO! i don’t have enough time with the few hobbies l do have, and l always seem to be chasing my tail anyway when it comes to the question of time. If this question was posed to Suze she could probably list you 20 items she is interested in, me … just one – More Time.

Anyway, that’s me – now how about you? What would you answer to today’s Topical Tropical Trinity questions if asked? Oh hang on … l am asking. Let me know below in the comments section or should you wish to – by all means create your own post – drop me a link in the comments section so l can read it and not ‘not’ see it. 

Thanks Rory
