Day 13 of blog challenge – Write about your hobbies

Day 13 of blog challenge.

WRITE ABOUT YOUR HOBBIES

My hobbies….lets see.

Obviously, writing..blogging… but I will write more about that in 2 days because that is the topic for day 15… However, I write a lot… For blog… and in my personal journal… There I like to write my thoughts, ideas, I like to think there, process information, get some self-awareness… So for a long time, writing has been something that I am constantly doing…and I am sure that I will always write something… Who knows, maybe one day, I will publish a book, or series of books… I tried to write book, a fictional book, story, a couple of times before, but I was not fully committed, I didnt had fully developed story… I just didnt do it whole-heartedly… But since I feel that I have matured a lot from that period when I was trying to write something…and since I am hoping that I will continue to mature in future…who knows…it is possible there will be a book…or series of books. I would also love to write a screenplay for theater….here in Croatia…Nothing special…more for fun and experiment… Since I love Batman…as some of you have maybe noticed….I would like one day to write a story for Batman comic-books since I feel that in last couple of year, world of comic books and stories is becoming to shallow, not creative…it doesnt provide any value…and I have some ideas about it how to change it… But we will see how it will all play out…. It is not like my priority and it is not like some big dream that I have…but we will see…who knows what can happen. About poetry.. Am I writing poetry? I used to. I experimented with that as well… I used to write in Croatian and English… Croatian language is more complex than English… So way of expression is also more complex… So it is also possible that one day I will publish my poetry…both… Croatian and English…it is not that I am translating between this two languages..but I am writing totally different poetries on each language… The thing with poetry is…I dont like it because…I dont know…poetry deals a lot with feelings… And I dont want to focus on feelings..I want to focus more on ideas, knowledge, stories… As a young kid, I used to write rap songs…just for myself… on Croatian language… So if you give me any word on Croatian language…I can find a rhyme for that word in a mili-second…. My point is…I am always writing something…right now it is only blog and journal…but since I am always writing something…who knows what can happen in future…

What else goes with writing? Obviously, reading. I like to read. Ever since I was little boy, I was interested in comic books and books…and I remember, my father would buy me comic books…and I would be amazed by pictures and drawings…and I hated a feeling that I cannot read…So I had a big desire to learn how to read… so that I can read all that comic books… Later the same thing with books… I had a period… Teenage years and high-school… I didnt read anything in that period, I didnt write anything…I was just wasting my life…. And I am angry to this day…why no one of my professors and teachers didnt notice that and why they didnt gave me direction and channel my energy??? Because I do have some potential. But in reality, no one pays attention… No one of my professors was intuitive enough to recognize anything in me… to guide me, help me, open me some doors… nothing.. But thats not the point here… We are talking about reading.. So yes, I love to read…everything. Fiction and non-fiction. I love good stories, I love knowledge, I love articles… And I am always telling… If you are alone at home…instead of sitting and having your depressive thoughts, pick-up a book and go on journey… I would rather be thinking about Universe, black holes, stars, space traveling…then to be thinking about myself and to feel sorry for myself… Once I even read some kind of chick literature haha…you know…those modern women writing stories for other modern women… Not that I am interested in that..but I have to see what is there…maybe I can find something valuable in it…. I will interpret it in my own way and I will see what ever I want to see in it… When it comes to movies, I am not big fan of movies… I dont watch them very often… But I like old movies, I like movies that are based on real-life stories, I love historical movies, war movies, western movies….I dont like too much action… I love slow and focused movies, movies that are slowly developing… I dont like this new mainstream movies… I dont understand what is happening…. It is so fast… I get lost… I cannot pay attention to that… I see robots flying, shooting, aliens are attacking, some people are trying to save the planet, someone is jumping, this person is fighting against other person…I mean so many things are happening…. I cannot pay attention to that. I do love documentaries and educational videos…

I am always in some phase… right now, I am reading, researching and exploring a lot about ancient civilizations and technology… Honestly, studying history and ancient civilizations…it changed my perspective on life completely… You understand better this world…  And technology…I am reading and learning about how technology works, how phones are working, how computers are working, how Internet is working…. I want to understand it… And not only that, I want to go even deeper in that… I want to learn how to code… and I want to learn how to fix and repair technologies…

Leonardo da Vinci was skilled in so many areas… He was a painter, an architect, innovator, musician, sculptor, thinker,mathematician, engineer… he was all that… So why you and I cannot become multi-skilled in more than just one area…???

Exercising. I love to exercise…. I believe in that phrase, healthy spirit in healthy body…or however it goes… I love blood flowing in my body… and I love variety in my exercises… For example, this morning, I was doing some kind of improvised movement and breakdance in my room…  I love to run in forest, I do parkour in forest… I do strength training on my attic..I go to street workout place near my house, I am stretching, sometimes I do yoga… I am not a team-player, but sometimes I play soccer or basketball..even a table tennis sometimes… I am thinking about creating a YouTube channel where I will be able to upload some of videos that I was making while I was doing some ‘cool’ stuff…I am planning to do that in combination with this blog…and hopefully, I will do it in few days… To be honest…I do feel little bit insecure about posting videos…but I think that it can be inspirational for some people… and plus, I believe that when people can see you…they will read your blog even more… It is more authentic.. People can see who you actually are… they can feel a vibe..

Another hobby… I love to take a walks in forest… I just love to go through forest and be outdoors.

I love to go on village with my grandparents…That is totally different experience… When I am there, then I have different hobbies…. Mostly hobbies that include gardening, work around house, going on river…and outdoor stuff.

Recently I started drawing… I am trying to fully commit myself to it because I think it will be very rewarding in the end… Just like writing… I remember first time I tried to write something meaningful..I was lost… I didnt know where to begin…totally lost…but little by little, I found my way… And I want the same to happen with my drawing… I practice drawing in two ways…I am watching at something, and I am trying to draw it… And sometimes I am watching at other drawings and I try to draw exactly what I see… And second way for me to practice is to imagine something in my head and then draw it on paper… First I am imagining whole picture, then I draw sketches and while I am doing that, I am imagining details and working on them…and when I have developed my sketches, I go to draw a real thing…and usually I am disappointed in the end hahaha.. But it is ok, it is a process…I understand that.

And in last few days, I am trying to solve Rubik’s cube. Few years ago, I saw some formulas on Internet how to solve it, and I did know how to solve it… But I havent touched it in years and I forgot everything… And now I am trying to solve it without any help.. I am planning to post pictures and make a post about Rubik’s cube and my process…

Ahhhhh, I want more time in my life hahah… I cannot do everything I want… So many things… This is why sometimes I feel that movies, entertainment, music, computer…is a huge distraction for me… And I always try to limit those because I think it is a waste of time… And few people have told me, it is not a waste of time… Well, thats because you got no goals and desires…you prefer to go with the flow… You got plenty of time to waste…

However, this is why I have said that genius people like Leonardo da Vinci and Nikola Tesla inpires me… They were masters at couple of areas…. I am not comparing myself to them and I am not considering myself a genius…but if I invest lots of time, effort and energy into it…maybe I can become…

Thank you so much for reading!
