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 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.

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