    What Hobby You Love Would You Hate To Do For A Living?

    Post  Paeter on September 27th 2018, 8:50 am

    Doing something different this week and playing through a game entirely to do my review of it. Only a 10 hour game, so twice the play time I'd put into a Trial And Error review, but the pressure of having to FINISH the game (I've gotten stuck a couple times with no online guides in existence yet) and finish it under a tight schedule is something I wouldn't want to do again.

    As work, I can't complain, obviously. But given the choice between enjoying it as a hobby or enjoying it in a work context, I'd prefer keeping it as a hobby.

    Can you think of any hobby you enjoy that you might enjoy less if it was also somehow "work"? What could potentially suck some fun out of it?

    The part of my hobbies that I enjoy is the fact that I get to do them on my own timetable. Anything that requires me to punch someone else's clock is going to automatically move it from "fun" to "work".

    I hear you on that. All of my hobbies have that work component. Books must be finished because I have readers screaming for sequels (well, two or three readers haha, but they're screaming)
    And my youTube videos are produced on a schedule. Monthly bulletins. Weekly vlogs.

    About the only hobbies I have left that haven't become work are reading and watching TV, and there are even times when both of them can cross over into work territory. lol
    Well, I guess there's gaming, but I don't do that very often these days.

    And I don't get paid for any of it Wink

    I'd really hate to be an professional assassin. Multiple passports, lots of cash to manage, aliases to keep straight. Oh, wait…
