Any new ones? Breadmaking? Cleaning? Magic: The Gathering?

I did like 10 Duolingo lessons on Arabic before the enormity of the whole situation became oppressive. I should really get back to that since I paid them for a year.
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

Will, you of all people should know how to use the word "enormity". For shame.

I was into Magic: The Gathering before the pandemic, and I'm still into Magic: The Gathering, and it is an all-consuming vastness, and I have picked up no new hobbies.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was released about a week after this quarantine started, and while it would probably be best classified as a new spin on an old hobby, it has nonetheless occupied a large portion of this time.

I was drinking pretty good there for a while, but that has slowed down. Pretty much the same stuff. Games with the bois, and chillin.

I don't know if any of it is "new", but since the beginning of lockdown I have:

  • recorded one song cover (this was supposed to be more often but it also turns out this is sort of a pain in the ass to do)
  • picked up a stylus so I could participate in drawing challenges on IG (perhaps sort of predictably, the trend lasted about a week in circles that I'm a part of so now I use the stylus to leave people fun notes on their islands in AC:NH)
  • cooking more often (nothing really new or novel, just more often)
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons has taken up an incredible number of hours of my time since its release and I find it one part shameful and six or seven parts sweet release from general anxiety. My favorite thing is decorating my house, because it is likely I won't be a homeowner for awhile and also the ease at decorating by pressing buttons instead of worrying "did I hang this up straight" is excellent
  • discovering that making my own cold brew coffee at home is way more of a miss than a hit, but making cold tea at home is easy
  • considering starting to stream games regularly again rather than just playing Animal Crossing in free time
  • I also recovered from a foot injury that I got right as lockdown started and can actually walk around with shoes on again, so taking more walks outside when possible is also enjoyable


I don't think I've done anything new, really. Just more of the stuff that I've already done more often.

I don't have any new hobbies, either!

I... actually don't know what I did wrong! Like "enormity" should have a negative moral valence? I've just been using it to describe scale :-(

If we're categorizing recovering from injuries as a hobby, my hand is doing better since I ripped through a ligament in December. I was going to start climbing again in mid-March, which is to say that I've gotten way more rest than I intended to and that's probably for the best in the long term.

Yeah, "enormousness" is such a mouthful that in hindsight it's not surprising that somebody noticed that the word "enormity" existed and just ran with it, ignoring its traditional meaning.
