Farming became a thing for me recently, and I can’t speak highly enough of it. And these aren’t financially sound activities, oh no. We are reclaiming the land as we go, just as we’re planting crops we don’t know will grow. That kind of hands-on experimentation is immensely rewarding, and it’s great exercise to boot. And then there are the goats.
Typesetting and calligraphy have always been an interest of mine. I also develop ciphers to implement into my works, and I’m actually quite proud of the progress I’ve made there. It’s almost certainly a practically meaningless pursuit, but is excellent for expanding your mind.
There are many more such activities I get myself involved in. Cycling, web design, hiking, urbex, and the like. I’m not good at any of them, and, to be honest, I can’t count the number of times I’ve nearly killed myself. But I wouldn’t have it any other way – the world’s out there to be explored!
