Why Don’t Millennials Have Hobbies?

Alisha Sawhney for the Walrus:

I came to a stark realization: I don’t have any hobbies—and nobody else I knew seemed to either.

I really cherish the few things I like to do that makes no money whatsoever. And I consider myself lucky to have a little time in the week to enjoy them.

I’ll add one thing to this sentiment: even our hobbies pile up around us and become a task. Backlogs of tv, video games, and board games, etc. It feels like we have more stuff to enjoy than ever and less time to get it in.
