The Pastime...What Is Your Favorite Way To Spend Your Free Time?
Favorite pastime comes to mind because I was at the Padres game last night. Baseball was once considered the national pastime, and is still a good time out, but it has recently lost its crown to football. Football is more fast paced, and people enjoy having and attending football parties.
Personally I would choose football any day over baseball, but as far as my favorite pastime, it is a tie between reading and hiking. It's ironic right? One pastime keeps me inside, while the other allows me to be out and about, and explore. Both are equally satisfying in their own way.
A pastime can be anything. By definition it is what you enjoy doing, and how you choose to spend your free time. Today I am having guests over for a barbecue because I enjoy cooking all the time, and entertaining occasionally.
Based on my personal observations in my community, and my oh so scientific polls of friends and family, here are some of the most current favorite pastimes.
- Video Gaming
- Cross Fit
- Watch/Attending Sporting Events
- Watching TV/Netflix
- Going to Movies
- Listening to Music
Favorite pastimes change as we as individuals, and as a society change. Once upon a time a favorite pastime was watching men fight beasts in an arena. Oh wait there is still bull fighting, but you get my point. The point is you have something you love doing. It makes you happy. So I am going to enjoy grilling today in beautiful weather, with friends and family, and have a yummy cocktail, or two. Cheers!
