I have several hobbies, and always on the lookout for more.
I've always been fascinated by…"
""One thing that I have learned is don't mix your hobby/passion with work, you'll end up hating them. I really loved drawing and I drew/designed for clients and they drain the hell out of you."
I second this. I used to make…"
"How do you guys find time for hobbies? I, for example, know what I like to do, but I never find time to do anything other than read and peruse AOM (which I include in the reading hobby). In the past few months I haven't done anything. I…"
"I read a lot about military history. I collect old plates which illustrate battle sites, armors and famous commanders.Also I study German in my free time. It is very delightful and gives a wide perspective about language itself."

I enjoy crossfitting, collecting watches, collecting pomades, collecting dress shoes+polishing them. With all those things i…"
""Most" car repairs are removing bolts take the part out, put the new part in, replace the bolts. (Until you get inside the engine or transmission). Older cars are easier to work on. Start there. Buy an old Chevy…"

I've been doing a variety of martial arts once or twice per week for the past 10ish years (give or take). I also read a lot (mostly online) about martial arts, their roots and origins, their inter-connectivity, how…"
"I've seen some of this with my boys. One question is whether he is just verbally whining or physically dragging as well.

"As with any setting of rules/changing behaviors, it is up to the parent to be the adult and be consistent. If you set a limit (such as sleeping on her own) and then cave in and let her sleep with you after three nights of constant screaming, you…"
