Number 11 on my 28 by 29 list is to find a new hobby that Daniel and I both enjoy. To accomplish this I made a list of all the hobbies I could think of/find on the internet. I printed them out and asked Daniel to mark all the hobbies he enjoys or would be interested in trying, and I did the same. Then I highlighted the ones we both marked to see where our common interests lie. Stop motion animation, pottery, visiting a shooting range, making stained glass, skydiving, film making, and building birdhouses are just a few of the hobbies I would have never imagined we’d both be interested in. Now we can kiss boring movie date nights goodbye!
If any of you want to try this with your significant others I’ve made a little worksheet of my list. You can download the pdf here. I’m calling it the “hobby compatibility quiz & creative dating guide”. Daniel thoroughly mocked me for that title, but I’ll have the last laugh when we make our first film!
