For a variety of reasons, I’m looking for new hobbies, activities, etc. to fill my spare time. Ideally, I’d like to find a mix of things that will put me in situations where I can meet (and hopefully befriend) some new and interesting people, allow me to be charitable with my time, and maybe teach me some new skills or uncover hidden talents (not necessarily all at the same time).
I’m not especially athletic, as is evidenced in this thread, though I do hike, have recently taken up in-line skating, and enjoy bocce ball. I don’t think I want to put myself into a group of strangers and admit that at almost 35 years of age, I don’t know how to play volleyball or swing a bat. I suppose some would consider me intelligent, but I’m not looking for anything “intellectual” (as in, I don’t really want to get into a book club and discuss what the author meant because I don’t really give a rat’s ass, and all that matters is that I was entertained).
What kinds of hobbies or activities would you suggest for me?
