Spring Break is officially over for the students of McGeorge School of Law. This means that, all of the fun that I had doing random things (and nothing), is over. But, I've decided that, in order to keep my sanity and peace of mind, I will pick up a hobby that keeps a smile on my face.
Although my days are filled with all of the things that I should be doing, I long for a vice or a hobby most days. I've been trying to pick up new and different interests just to keep things spicy, but so far, I haven't found that one thing that adds a little zest to my life. As of right now I regularly workout, am a ballet dancer, and I work.
What Am I looking for?
I am a visual perceiver first and foremost. I love to see things and that's how I connect with them. As someone who has had a difficult history and diagnoses surrounding their eyes and eyesight, I try not to take for granted the things that I see. Hence the photography obsession.
So, in a hobby/vice, I am looking for something to "wow" me. I am looking for something so beautiful that I can't look away. And this doesn't have to be a picture or a sunset on a beach, it can be a show, a concert, or even a musical. Just something different.
Another thing that I wouldn't mind adding to my list of regulars is something regarding food. I eat the same things over and over (and honestly I don't have a problem with it), but it would be great to be excited about new tastes, new flavors and beautiful plating.
Why am I looking for a hobby during the busiest part of the semester and of work? Because I am at the point in my law school career where I am no longer excited to spend days or even hours in the library. My attention span is now almost completely non-existent when it comes to sitting down and actually studying. And, as far as work is concerned, the piles are not going anywhere. No matter how hard I try, it is just not enough.
So, it's my belief that a hobby would help to keep me motivated when the Self-Check doesn't fully reset me.
So, What'll It Be?
That's the thing, I have no clue!
I think I will start by buying tickets to a couple of shows, and from there I will just be sure that I've attended, at least, one show per month. That should keep things spicy for now.
Here are some of the tickets that I currently have:
Carmina Burana (Sacramento Ballet)
Giants vs. River Cats (Exhibition Game)
Finding Neverland (Musical)
An American In Paris (Broadway)
On The Run II Tour
