My work entails opening up a lot of browser tabs, visiting sites, researching stuff, and sharing pithy and often hilarious takes. Wait, that’s my hobby. Actually, its both. The combination of screen addiction and the blurred line between work and leisure means that for many of us, it’s hard to distinguish between work and leisure, and even harder to come up with a list of hobbies that doesn’t require broadband. It just doesn’t cut it to say, “For work, I sit at my computer for hours and for my hobby, I do the same thing high.” The closest I come to having a hobby is watching baseball. So, basically, my hobby is watching other people do their jobs. The problem is even more acute for the younger crowd. Alisha Sawhney wonders, Why Don’t Millennials Have Hobbies? “Over the next century, as lavish Silicon Valley headquarters, pizza stations, and in-office gyms became the new norm, work culture blurred the lines between our professional and personal lives. Somewhere along the way, many people within my Y2K cohort took work merch and free booze to compensate for long hours and unpaid vacation. For a lot of us, the rise of precarious employment and job insecurity created a toxic relationship with work that left little time or energy for anything else.” (FWIW, writing thinkpieces about your generation also doesn’t qualify as a hobby…)
