Sorry to bump, but good threak.
After an incredibly busy school-year, I finally finished college (several years off schedule and with some interruptions along the way). Anyway, now I'm left with tons of free time I'd like to put to good use. I have a part-time job I'll be holding on to while looking for something better, and no other responsibilities. I consider myself at-risk for video game addiction, so I'm looking for suggestions on what I should do with my time before I end up going out and buying a PS3.

And so on, and so forth...
Just the kind of suggestions I was looking for.
I enjoy cooking, especially baking, but I will be starting on a nutrition plan this week, so other than exploring different ways of cooking skinless chicken breast that's pretty much out.
I'm going to start a workout plan, too. I started this a New Year's Resolution thing but eventually had to stop because I didn't have the time for it.
I have a couple of DIY projects planned, but those will only take a couple of days each.
I sometimes enjoy reading, but I think I'll lay off books for a while. I'm always into researching how to do new things, though.
I also play a few instruments and have fun with it, but I realized years ago that I'm no musician.
I guess I've always been the "Jack of all trades, master of none" type, so I'm having trouble thinking of any special skills/talents that I can apply to a hobby.

Also, I will be starting a regular poker game as a fun way to keep in touch with some of the guys from college. I've also promised to teach them what I know about Blackjack and card counting, after watching them sit next to me at a Casino and piss away money.
Any other ideas for social hobbies?
