So, college is starting again. Yes, we know you have lectures lined up, but that’s usual. Let’s skip to where the fun is—after class! What’s the first thing you do after class ends? Head right over to your ‘usual place’ to hang out with friends till it’s almost curfew time. Right?

While that may be a good idea every once in awhile, here’s another good idea. Picking up a hobby post college hours. Not that difficult, in fact, hella productive because you’d actually have more to flaunt in the ‘Hobbies’ column on your resumé than just a fancy college degree (once college ends). Sounds good? Well then, here’s listing a few hobbies you could take up after college.
 

Do-It-Yourself (DIY)

Do-It-Yourself (DIY)

This may sound tad cliché, to get creative in your past time, but DIY is legit business. These Instagram accounts are proof that all those interiors that you loved so much on Pinterest weren’t store-bought—just like how that perfectly perforated WhatsApp emoji clutch you spotted on a fashion blog wasn’t manufactured that way. So go explore your creativity—attagirl!

 

Yoga & Exercise

Yoga & Exercise

Don’t skip the pointer just yet—we’re only asking for 15 minutes of your day! It wouldn’t hurt, for that’s probably the amount of time you’d spend scrolling through your social media feed. But sooner than later, when the results start to show and you find that stubborn belly fat melting away, you will be glad! Besides, yoga also comes with perks for the skin, so win win!

 

Online Documentaries

Online Documentaries

Too many of us are Netflix addicts by now, it’s a known fact. But here’s one way to manifest that addiction into a productive hobby—by watching online documentaries. You’re still doing what you do best, watching TV, except this one’s more educational and even more useful if you do choose to pursue a career in film. Besides, can’t deny you’ve always loved Blood Diamond and City of God, can you now? Documentaries only get more real.

 

Reads & Discussions

Reads & Discussions

Or, if you like to read (which is already a good hobby) and need a break from your regular fiction, there are all kinds of online platforms and communities like Reddit and Medium that provide some excellent content to feed your curiosity. Not only that, you could also have online discussions with people across the world on subjects you feel strongly about—because it’s all free and open.

 

Work From Home

Work From Home

While not exactly a hobby, this one’s for the workaholics in the making. Your mind’s restless, it cannot be left idle, so might as well put it to good use and make a few bucks out of it. Volunteering, freelancing, interning, there’s all kinds of good to not only earn you those extra (Saturday night) bucks but also give your career a head start. Don’t tell us you’re not tempted already…
