Hobby





A hobby

Is a regularly undertaken activity that is done for pleasure, typically, during one's leisure time. Hobbies can include the collection of themed items and objects,
engaging in creative and artistic pursuits, tinkering playing sports, along with many more examples. By continually participating in a particular hobby, one can acquire
substantial skill and knowledge in that area.
Generally speaking, a person who engages in an activity solely for fun is called an amateur (or hobbyist), as opposed to a professional who engages in an activity for
remuneration, or pay. An amateur may be as skilled as a professional, the principle difference being that a professional receives compensation while an amateur does not.
There have been instances where hobbies have led to significant developments beyond the personal fulfillment for those involved. Amateur astronomers have made significant
contributions to the profession, and hobbyists have made discoveries such as finding an unknown celestial body or celestial event. In the area of computer programming, the
invention of the Linux operating system began as a student's hobby. A substantial amount of early scientific research came from the hobby activities of the wealthy.
Some hobbies result in an end product. Examples of this would be woodworking, photography, moviemaking, jewelry making, software projects such as Photoshopping and
home music or video production, making bracelets, artistic projects such as drawing, painting, etc., creating models out of cardstock or paper - called papercraft. Hobbies
also include higher-end projects like building or restoring a car, or building a computer from scratch.

And you have your hobby what you love?
