If I lived in America I'd buy a gun and take up shooting. It was cool when I was there. Do that. Buy a gun.

  • Guitar playing and amatuer music production (nothing serious just screwing around)
  • Target shooting (pistol bullseye and IPSC)

Was going to say playing an instrument and target shooting. haha, we should chill. I play drums and like to compete in long range. Bolt and Lever Action rifles mainly.

If you like art, could always try painting something. This little guy was the last oil on canvas painting I did for a duder at work. It was done within a week, so it doesn't take up too much time. The beautiful thing about abstract expressionism is that it can be done by anyone:

Painting by Pimbly. Excuse the shitty cellphone photo.

I draw whenever I can. It started off as a nervous habit, I needed something to study my hands when my mind drifted off and I started thinking of stuff from the past that bothered me. I think by this point, I'm halfway decent at it. At the very least.

I also read. Novels (fantasy and sci-fi), comics, manga, usually.

I've been wanting to get into tabletop, but my friends that play have all gotten busy, so I have no group to learn from.

I'm American, but I have no interest in ever owning a gun. Paintball, sure. Laser tag? Yeah. Never a real gun.

Run. Start with the couch to 5k. After that do 10 pushups, and the next time you run do 11 pushups, etc.

Dude, you need to get out. You can run in the winter. Do push ups or sit ups for about five minutes and you'll be sweating and you don't even feel the cold, assuming it's not below 0 out. Once you get running you'll be even warmer. I used to run in shorts 3 times a week during the winter, up here in cold-ass up-state NY. Then again, I have hairy-ass legs.

I've really been getting in to cooking and baking, which I find to be pretty fun -- particularly since cooking is not only a good hobby, but a life skill. I also read a lot of manga, play the piano, spend more time than I probably should looking for new music to listen to, and I watch a lot of TV series. I've been thinking about learning to knit because I know that once I get good, I can do it while I watch stuff, but I'm not sure it's something I want to get in to.

Does reading count as a hobby? I feel like it might, what with how illiterate it seems most people are. I get lost in reading for hours at a time (I think I find more enjoyment out of that than video games tbh)

Otherwise, you can learn a useful skill? Why not try learning some HTML and javascript, and playing around with websites? Or, pick up something like woodworking, or painting, or anything really. There's an absolute crapton of things you can do with your spare time to increase your skills.

Think of it as an RPG, and you're building your stats :)

I'll be your friend! We can hold hands and run through the woods and catch frogs!

Music, but it can be expensive depending on the instrument you play.
