Old-School Hobbies That Are Dying Out
Experts always say we're supposed to have a hobby, so we don't get too stressed out by life. But how many of us actually have one?
A new survey says that around 75% of us drones have at least 1 hobby and 25% of people couldn't even think of a hobby they are participating in.
Do video games and podcasting count? I sure hope so, otherwise I guess I don't have a hobby.
The study also looked at hobbies that used to be popular back in the dizzle.
Here are the top 10 hobbies that have died out:
- Being interested in trains, or building model train sets.
- Quilting and embroidery.
- Astrology, where you're truly into the zodiac and pay attention to it.
- Scrapbooking. If anything, people use apps and do it virtually now.
- Home brewing. That one's a little surprising, because there was a pretty big home-brewing boom a while back. But there are so many craft beers now, who has the time?
- Squash and racquetball.
- Fixing up an old car. Maybe because no one knows how to anymore?
- Astronomy. Meaning you own a telescope and actually use it on a regular basis.
- Toy collecting. The whole Beanie Babies fad was 20 years ago.
