Drawing Thread 10All you need to begin drawing is a pencil and some paper
Writing ThreadAny type of writing is allowed, from lyrics, to poetry, to essays, and anything in between.
conspiracy theories/extremely abnormal philosophiesI now consider researching conspiracy theories to be a hobby of mine. Of course, as a hikki, this information is of literally no use to me whatsoever, and I do not have the charisma to "educate" others. It is simply a pastime.
learning geographyi have been doing a quiz every day

Interesting countries to visitAs the several traveling threads prove, there are plenty of wizards who are curious about the world. Here, we talk about our traveling wishes and interests in a more abstract and general sense. What countries have you visited? What were your experiences? What countries are you curious about visiting and why? Any particular place you'd avoid like the plague? It doesn't matter if your traveling ideas are realistic or not, just share what interests you.
Birding(Bird Watching)Started getting into this very recently after watching some videos about it on YouTube. I then bought some Sibley and Roger Tory field guides and a Nikon M5 Monarch Binos. Was wondering if there is anyone else who enjoys doing this as well. Seems like a friendly hobby for everyone and its gets you outside and "touching grass".

The Great Discourse on the Establishing of MindfulnessI wouldn’t make this thread unless I had put effort into something useful I could offer to go along with it. Attached is the Mahāsatipaṭṭhāna Sutta aka The Great Discourse on the Establishing of Mindfulness. I choose this one particular sutta because of its importance, perhaps the most important sutta in the whole Pali Canon. The knowledge in the suttas pertain to insight. Insight is where everything begins really, as far as Buddhism goes and naturally achieving insight should be the primary concern, it’s not far-fetched so say it should be your only concern, once you decide to take on this path.
Psychology and PsychiatryHere we don't primarily talk about our personal experiences (there's /dep/ for that) but post informative and educational videos and share interesting articles and/ or books about the topics.
Mathematics thread 2I liked the first math thread, but that hit the bump limit so I'm making another one.
French LanguageDo any other wizards have an interest in French language, history, and culture?
Small things thats gives you some joy in lifeI honestly haven't put any effort in gardening this chili plant, I just placed the seeds in the pot with dirt and this how it turned out a few weeks later. It's pleasuring seeing it growing day by day and im looking forward eating the chilli once its red.
Fighting/Combat sports/ Martial artsAny other wizards into combat sports?
PhotographyRecently I've been getting into photography. I've found that after doing so, I perceive moments in different ways. Things simultaneously seem more transient, yet more permanent. It's a sensation that's difficult to describe, except to say that I am more 'aware' of the moments around me. For obvious reasons I have avoided urban areas, but in terms of landscapes and natural shots, it is quite peaceful.

TV Television showsThis thread will be for discussing all television shows, series and miniseries
PodcastsHello Wizzies, what podcasts do you recommend? i enjoy going trekking while listening to some relaxing podcasts to distract me.
ObjectsThere are certain objects that I like to collect images of just because I love how they look. I think these are things that just look oddly beautiful in a way. I'm not sure if 'beautiful' is the right word. They just seem really pleasant, I guess. If you don't mind, I wanted to share some of these, and like to hear others aesthetic sensibilities in physical objects.
Pipe smoking/tobaccoPipe tobacco is a hobby, right? There's the element of collecting pipes and trying various blends, which resembles wine tasting in how elaborately some people talk about them. Any wiz pipe smokers here? Any favourite blends you'd recommend? Show me your wizpipe(s) (no homo).
Trying to make an imageboardIm trying to make an imageboard for fun, i got fired from my job and have money for some months so before trying searching a new one ill try to make an imageboard as an small project.
Drawing Thread 9All you need to begin drawing is a pencil and some paper
Wizardchan plays...Yu-Gi-Oh!last yugioh thread died, so I decided to make another one.
Tabletop Rpg ThreadHas anyone read 5e's fucking Ravenloft?
Consumption free hobbiesWhat are some hobbies that don't involve consuming anything? You purchase a 1 time item and very rarely if ever have to replace it. Learning yo-yo tricks would be a consumptionless hobby in this case. There are obviously thinks like whistling or playing the spoons too. The idea is it has to make as little foot print as possible while being something you can develop and grow at. Drawing wouldn't count because you need paper.
Comfortable PicturesI contemplated on which board to post this and ultimately decided I'll do it on /hob/ this time, as it seems to me that collecting and enjoying pictures of houses, towns, areas, natural scenes etc., is in fact kind of a hobby.
Gardening ThreadThis year most of my plants (zucchinis, strawberries, cucumbers) got messed up with the heat waves, tomatoes are really the only thing I have left. I don't want summer to end, going back to eating store vegetables and fruit is soul crushing. Not much money so no fancy organic food.
Coin Collecting (Numismastics)Let's have a thread on it! In the US at least, there's a lot of neat stuff to find even if you're not into it that much. For example, all quarters & dimes dated 1964 and earlier are made of 90% silver.
Philosophy ThreadPrevious thread: >>25265
Wizard AnimatorsJust watched a Shawn Keller interview last night, and I have to say, he's quite possibly one of the most wizardly animators alive today.
LanguageI've made a habit of collecting words. I.e. familiarizing myself with their definitions and basic histories. It seems to be a beneficial practice. Because not only do I use these words to communicate to others, but I use them when communicating with myself in my thoughts.
Road TripThere is a biking thread and an international travel thread but no road trip thread. Has anyone here gone on a road trip? I know it's practically a rite of passage for most normalfaggots (at least in the US), but I would be interested in getting out and polishing my wizard wand in a different state.
Educational Youtube videosI recently picked up this hobby of watching pop education videos on youtube. History, science, technology, futurology, philosophy etc. It really passes the time. And a quick 10 minute tidbit is very relaxing.
tea threaddo any wizards like tea? specifically loose leaf teas? if so, any specific blends or varieties you like/recommend?
How to shoot down planes and not get torn apart by incoming artillery fire.Hello, /hob/. I like military. I also like air defence. Specifically, MANPADS. Today I will tell you about a russian MANPADS 9K38 "Igla", also known as SA-18 "Grouse" by NATO classification. I will teach you the basics of its construction, working principles, how to operate it and how to not die immediately after firing it at an incoming SU-24. Stay tuned, wizards.
Solo RoleplayingI've been interested more and more about the power of daydreaming. I think that if my daydreaming ability was extremely advanced, that it would activate an entirely new level of self-actualization for myself.
/mg/ - Minimalism GeneralFor discussing software and hardware minimalism.
anyone making money off their hobbies?subject says it all. i want to make money doing something i love instead of being a wagecuck (don't we all?), but i have no idea how to monetize my art or my skills. some people might say "don't do it for the money" but i'd really want to get paid to do something actually worthwhile.
ParanormalAfter Reading Fingerprints of the Gods and Magicians of the Gods, I wonder if it’s possible the existence of an ancient and lost civilization like those books described. I know a couple of books who give more evidence of that. 2 books written by the Spanish investigator Javier Sierra, called: En busca de la edad de oro and La Ruta Prohibida, if you want to read them. But, the only book I know who gives a serious proof of that is Hamlet’s Mill. That makes me think if the civilization is cyclical and the event that erase a possible civilization could happen again to us. Just think about it.
Cooking with depressionI keep eating ready meals which are starting to taste stale and I can't imagine the lack of nutrients and fresh ingredients being beneficial for my health. Also it's expensive.
Shortwave RadioDon't know if we've ever had thread even though it seems like a very wizardly hobby. I bought a really cheap tecsun but i could only get a couple channels, two spanish (cuban?) ones and some mainstream new channels. Not sure if spending more money would help or if I should try a different area. I've been told the hobby is completly dead but looking on reddit and forums it looks like there's still some activity
Survivalism/PrepperAnybody into SHTF related hobbies? I started with prepper stuff the past year and it was quite helpful to be prepared before normgroids started panicking with the coronavirus. I'm reading a lot on the topic and trying to improve in different skills for when SHTF, if ever. Perhaps this doesn't sounds as a very wizardly hobby but I find survivalist stuff interesting and training different skills and improvisation helps me concentrating and not being devoured by my thoughts. I think it's good for wizards

carnivorous plantsi'm looking forward to get one of those mainly for practical purpose (killing insects) but before i'd like to know if they're reliable as such or if it's just a myth. i heard the drosera species was the one that needed the less care and thus was perfect for beginners.
fishingi taught myself fishing 2 years ago and have enjoyed it immensely
HorrorAny one else have horror stuff as a hobby? Like collecting weird pictures, reading creepy stories, listening to paranormal podcasts and watching horror films? I find myself drawn to it and I think it counts as a hobby if it's something you're invested in. Sort of like a modern folklore.
A very odd troll hobbyMy hobby is trolling and cyber stalking people. Does anyone else share this amazing interest. I understand it is a bit weird, but it's my only interest. I have 40+ instagram accounts larping as various females and males, to catfish my way into various random normies lives and gain followers. Every larp has a distinct personality and it's own internet friend group. I also do this on twitter, and facebook. Anyone else share the interest?
Science QuestionsI don't know if this thread fits here, but I want to post a lot of things I've been thinking about just generally in Physics/Chemistry/"hard sciences" and have been confused by.
