30 Day Challenge, Day 20 — A hobby of yours

(I was traveling the last 3 days, so I’m a few days behind in this challenge. I’ll go back and do those then post them. Expect them to be out of order. Just like me!)

But the twentieth entry in this “30 Day Challenge” is a hobby of mine.

Aside from electronic gadgets, I don’t know that I have any hobbies at the moment.

I used to put models together. The plastic kind. That come in boxes. That require assembly.

I’m fairly detail-oriented. I’d always go above and beyond to make it look more “real”. And I’d usually modify it by adding things like fiber optic lighting or other such strangeness.

I used to find it relaxing. “Relaxing” is probably not the right word. I found it a way to escape but remain focused at the same time. Something I tend to have to do.

But it’s probably been about a decade since I last worked on a model. It seems that “life” has gotten in the way. I’ve always got something I’m working on these days: it was either two jobs, paperwork for the businesses, construction around the house, etc.

Maybe it’s time I set aside a little time to start doing that again.

Until next time...
Erik

    1. I have many a scar on my fingertips from battling with the X-acto knife. I think they hate me as well. I started using a Dremel for most of the cutting work and didn’t have as many issues after that.
