2018 was a good year for my hobbies.
I started a few new ones, embraced some old ones and neglected others.
Since this blog is based around the things that I enjoy doing/watching/learning, etc. I think it’s time to formally create a list. Obviously, this isn’t all the hobbies that I’m into, but I would say they are what take up most of my thoughts and time.
Below you will find a quick overview of my hobbies from 2018. I plan on writing a separate post going into much more detail. I will update with links as I post them.
This all started with my friend’s Toy Line – Knights of the Slice of Toy Pizza (Toy Pizza Store). I wanted to support my friend and also just thought that the 1000toys X KOTS Lime looked awesome, like some sort of Pizza Power Ranger. The price was a bit steep (I’ve learned that many are), but I ordered it. This was back in March and pushed me into the whole world of collecting cool-ass toys (proof).

This all started after I grabbed a couple of SH Figuarts DBZ figures. Broly was a grail figure that I never thought I would own (due to the price). I came across this Figure-Rise Standard model kit and bought it. Funny enough, I have yet to build it (soon), but have since amassed a Gunpla backlog of 3 shelves.
YouTube videos back in 2016 (Thank you Uncle Atom) led me to buying and building some Frostgrave miniatures. I purchased a Reaper Bones Learn to Paint kit, but I was too scared to do it until 2018. I didn’t think I could paint and I think I did a decent job .
Once I found our modern board games were a thing a few years back…I built up an insane collection of games. I finally started to make a point of playing them last year.
I bought a couple of cameras and have upped my instagram game a little bit. I still have a lot more shooting to do; I’ve really just messed around. But I’m really excited to get better at taking photographs.
I don’t have as much time to spend on video games these days, so my time is very precious. I did attempt to finally start my YouTube channel by playing God of War
but it wasn’t great content for the amount of time it took, so I didn’t continue. I did play some fantastic games last year, though.
