Bring Back Hobbies 2k20

I don't know about you, but I am tired of hustling.

It seems everything has become a side hustle:

You like to draw or paint; sell your designs on redbubble or Society 6.

You like to read; blog about it and get paid.

You like to exercise; become a part time instructor.

You like to write; here's a list of 7 ways to make money as a freelancer.

I get it. Making money is great. As a broke college student I've looked up ways to make money more than once (a day), but with the culture of #hustling it feels like hobbies don't exist anymore they're just another job.

And that sucks.

The whole idea of side hustling was to make money doing something you already enjoy, but it seems nothing can be done out of pure enjoyment anymore.

You do not have to be on the grind 24/7. You're allowed to have a moment, an hour, hell a whole day to do something you enjoy without wondering how you can financially benefit from it. I'm not saying to stop your side hustle if that's what you want, plenty of people have been able to find away to turn their side hustle into their full time job and love it, but it's not for everyone.

And it's okay if it's not for you.

So let's bring back hobbies.

Let's bring back doodling even if you don't think it could sell. Let's bring back grabbing a book to pass the time and enjoy without plotting out your review. Let's cook without worrying about how it's going to look and how many likes and clicks it will get. Let's bring back having photoshoots with your friends because you have a camera and want some picks for the 'gram.

In short, let's bring back hobbies and just enjoy life.
