Since I love cars so much, every time I do those activities, I feel very relax and happy even though at that time, I might be going through some of the hardest moments. For example, when I feel stress about study or family matters, I choose to look at cars in the magazines or read a piece of car news.
Etymology[ edit ] Writing articles for Wikipedia is a hobby for some people. In the 16th century, the term "hobyn" had the meaning of "small horse and pony". The term " hobby horse " was documented in a payment confirmation for a "Hobbyhorse" from Reading, England.
It was designed for a child to mimic riding a real horse. By the derivative"hobby", was introduced into the vocabulary of a number of English people. In the 17th century, the term was used in a pejorative sense by suggesting that a hobby was a childish pursuit, however, in the 18th century with a more industrial society and more leisure time, hobbies took on greater respectability  A hobby is also called a pastime, derived from the use of hobbies to pass the time.
A hobby became an activity that is practised regularly and usually with some worthwhile purpose. History[ edit ] The origins pursuits that others thought somewhat childish or trivial.
However, as early as Sir Matthew Hale, in Contemplations Moral and Divine, wrote "Almost every person hath some hobby horse or other wherein he prides himself.
By the mid 18th century there was a flourishing of hobbies as working people had more regular hours of work and greater leisure time. They spent more time to pursue interests that brought them satisfaction. Initially the bad habits were perceived to be of a sensual and physical nature, and the counter attractions, or perhaps more accurately alternatives, deliberately cultivated rationality and the intellect.
The burgeoning manufacturing trade made materials used in hobbies cheap and was responsive to the changing interests of hobbyists. The English have been identified as enthusiastic hobbyists, as George Orwell observed. We are a nation of flower-lovers, but also a nation of stamp-collectors, pigeon-fanciers, amateur carpenters, coupon-snippers, darts-players, crossword-puzzle fans.
During the 20th century the term hobby usually brought to mind activities such as stamp collecting, embroidery, knitting, painting, woodwork, photography, but not activities like listening to music, watching television or reading.
These latter activities bring pleasure but lack the sense of achievement that is usually associated with a hobby. They are usually not structured, organised pursuits, as most hobbies are. The pleasure of a hobby is usually associated with making something of value or achieving something of value.
Stebbins  has a framework which distinguishes the terms has a useful categorisation of leisure in which he separates casual leisure from serious Leisure.
He describes serious leisure as undertaken by amateurs, hobbyists and volunteers. Amateurs engage in pursuits that have a professional counterpart, such as playing an instrument or astronomy. Hobbyists engage in five broad types of activity: Volunteers commit to organisations where they work as guides, counsellors, gardeners and so on.
The separation of the amateur from the hobbyist is because the amateur has the ethos of the professional practitioner as a guide to practice. An amateur clarinetist is conscious of the role and procedures of a professional clarinetist.
A large proportion of hobbies are mainly solitary in nature. For many hobbies there is an important role in being in touch with fellow hobbyists.
Some hobbies are of communal nature, like choral singing and volunteering. During the 20th century there was extensive research into the important role that play has in human development.
While most evident in childhood, play continues throughout life for many adults in the form of games, hobbies, and sport.
Stamp collecting has declined along with the decline in the importance of the postal system. Woodwork and knitting have declined as hobbies as manufactured goods provide cheap alternatives for handmade goods.
Through the internet an online community has become a hobby for many people; sharing advice, information and support, and in some cases, allowing a traditional hobby, such as collectingto flourish and support trading in a new environment.
