I have to associate with this then, I have had several 'hobbies' or interests over the years, Go karting, RC Cars, Paintball, airsoft, PS3, Wii ,
you name it I wanted to do it.
I went out and bought all the gear, spending quite literally hundreds of dollars ( or pounds seeing as I live in the UK) on the best bits or
accessories, only to 'do it' a few times then get bored and try and find something else to 'entertain me'.
Last year I was out of work for about 6 months, TBH I wasn't looking for a job but don't tell the wife, but one day I wandered about the flat
looking for something to do, I stood in my front room, I said to myself " Shall I watch TV?, no. Shall I watch a video?, no. Shall I read a book?,
no, Shall I play on the PC?, no, Look out the window? no".
I basically stood in the front room, my head sank to my chest and I said " I HAVE to do something to occupy my time now" , THAT was depression
setting in. So its IMHO is a mix of both.
Now I'm looking at my jobs contract which ends in a couple of days and I remember that day in my front room. something I WILL NOT be repeating, I
will also not be wasting money on useless frivolities unless I know I can get a bargain, My mother in law bought me a second hand bike so I will buy
cheap bits for it instead of spending hundreds again as the wife seems to think I'll get bored with it soon enough. Something to keep me entertained
Its so hard to find something you can enjoy doing these days, your constantly bombarded with 'do this, do that, that sometimes you don't know what
you want to do, its a conspiracy to confuse us all I tell ya.....,.,
