Hobby ideas in a condo

Hi

I live in a one bed one den condo and want to do a hobby but I don't know what are the good hobbies to do that aren't loud to annoy the neighbours

Got any suggestions?

Do you want a hobby that only requires yourself, or as a group/couple?

What are your current/past hobbies?

Cheers

I never really have a hobby ... like watching tv and video games if those are classified as hobbies...I want something better to do

If you have some room then do puzzles, they're fun to do and can really eat up time.

How about taking up a musical instrument, there are some that don't make a lot of noise.

Collecting... displaying and arranging... trophy hunting... organizing.... and all that stuff!!

you can incorporate your collecting into decorating for your condo, or keep your collecting under wraps

stamps, coins, vintage video games, vintage gaming consoles, vintage cameras, glass and ceramic insulators from old power lines, railway artefacts, model railway equipment, antique or vintage model railway toys, diecast or metal toys, posters and paraphenelia of tv shows and movies you have enjoyed... the list is endless

The advantage to 'collecting' as a hobby is it encompasses so much more than most people think... You get into research, learning about the subject matter, travel and tripping as you acquire items for your collection, planning, logistics, organization, and display.

Currently I collect antique cameras, as well as victorian household items and such, so have a fun time on occasion going to auctions, and visiting antique stores in my travels.

many people take an interest in particular favorite tv shows, series, or movies, and turn that interest into an interest in collecting stuff related to it.

Try photography.
Have some stalker lenses and a tripod in your balcony/window for your neighbors to see.

Puzzle are interesting but it a bit of a one time thing... I know I don't want to do the same puzzle again

i can't imagine displaying coins or stamps that look good as decor in my condo. I actually have an old camera of my dad's, it a Russian made camera called fed-5 35mm film camera

I have seen crazy collection on the net like Star Wars of course :P or batman that just overwhelmed the house with so much stuffs ... I remember someone actually made bat cave.. that is some next level stuffs

Learning about health and fitness, and going to the gym. That'll give you enough to do for the next decade :)

This will keep you going the rest of your life and requires a small desk, exacto knife and some varnish for finishing. People literally take their whole lives to get excellent at it.
