I need a hobby. I've never been much of a "hobby" person I guess, like my partner has his motorbike, I enjoy watching tv show s and reading a book if I go with him when he's riding. And I know they're hobbies. But I guess I want something like he has.
But on the cheaper side preferably.

One thing I recently started was programming. It's easier than it looks. Pick up an arduino kit for $30 and make your friends think you're way smarter than you actually are.
You could try something more physical. I did bowling all summer, I also love to go out for pool. It's best to go to a pool hall rather than a bar with a pool table. You still have the alcohol and you can bring your friends. All types of people show up and the atmosphere is generally really good.
You can also try to get into home DIY projects. From printing shit onto strange materials to replacing the handle in your refrigerator with a zesty one you made. . . I don't know, some people make really cool shit tho
You can also get into sewing. Nobody does it anymore and I think it's because of our culture but it used to be far more common for women to know how to sew and there is nothing wrong with that. That means you can talor your friends dresses, possibly your own one day.
Sewing starts off with. . . simple sewing. Jeans that you would never be caught dead wearing and draw-string bags guys will think are cool. Then once you start following "Patterns" skillfully you can get onto the real fun which is to design the patterns yourself. Meaning you could make your own clothes from scratch. Think about how much cheaper a dress would be for you. The materials are readily available. From very cheap cotton to extremely expensive satins and denims. My great grandmother was average at it and my grandmother always tells me about how she would find a dress in a Magazine and she would make it.
You can also try to find a new job. Maybe something more exciting. Can you dance? Work at a wedding entertainment company. I bet the right woman would make an Emcee like no one else! That work happens only on Fridays and weekends which is pretty cool. I can tell you from experience when you go to these weddings you eat like a king.
Make meme's. You watch a lot of TV right? Why don't you keep an eye open for little moments that might be funny to watch in low quality with a cleaver caption?
Your possibilities are endless. Finding a hobby is about being adventurous and not being afraid to try something new and hate it. My advice to you is that if something interests you even a little bit, just persue it. Who the hell cares how long it's gonna take you to learn to sew or how crazy it is to be a dancer on the weekends while working a 9-5. We're so young and we CAN do this now.2

Just try a bunch of things and see what sticks! :) I'd start with the ones that already interest you.
My current hobbies and how I found them:
- Running. I've always despised exercise, but my mom and sister-in-law both do 5ks and I thought it'd be fun to be able to run a race with them. Plus it occurred to me that running is a survival skill; there may be a time someday where I have to run for my life. Unlikely but possible :)
- Dancing. This is something I've liked since I was young, but never pursued since I don't have the money for lessons. Then recently, my friend introduced me to a dancing group that meets once a week for $4 and now it's my highlight of every week.
Hobbies I'm interested in but haven't tried yet:
- Learn sign language
- Dance lessons (as I said before)
- Reading (I'm like a mainstream reader currently lol, I only read what's popular)
Anyway, I hoped that thread would give you some ideas/inspiration lol. But you know yourself better than any of us :) Good luck!!1
