You know how hobbies can be relaxing? Hobbies that seem to be popular are things like gardening, knitting or crocheting, collecting things doing puzzles, etc.
As for gardening I enjoy seeing them, but I would never inflict myself on plants. Plants tend to die under my care. I am way to clumsy for things like knitting or crocheting. Puzzles I lose interest too quickly.
So what is my hobby? Languages 🙂
One thing I enjoy doing is learning phrases in other languages. i have learned greetings in 30 languages so far. I love to go to one of the supermarkets in my city that feels like being in an international airport. I like to walk around and greet people in their language.
So what is a language geek to do when he receives stimulus money? Feed his healthy habit 🙂
I ordered books to refresh my Koine Greek and Hebrew the original languages of the bible. I also signed up for unlimited lifetime with Rosetta Stone. First will be increasing my Spanish and Portuguese. Then I will move on to another language. I love the sound of Italian. That might be fun. Oh the joys that await me. 🙂
How does my hobby tie in with what I do? I am glad you asked. By learning greetings and phrases in other languages it helps me to connect with people and show them I respect their culture. By refreshing my Koine Greek and Hebrew it will enhance my study of the bible. By improving my Spanish, I will be able to share Jesus with my Hispanic friends. By improving my Portuguese, I will be able to share Jesus with my Brazilian friends.
What are your hobbies?
