I would never tell anyone IRL that I write fanfiction. What are your embarrassing hobbies?

I read murder mysteries. Nothing wrong with that but it doesn't fit my persona.

How can someone be ashamed of their hobbies? It's my biggest pride and joy. I let everyone know how much time I spend doing what I love doing instead of doing what I need to do.

Imamother, though I wouldn’t dignify it by calling it a hobby. It’s more of a weakness.

My hobby is home improvement projects. But why would that be embarrassing?

I also write fanfiction! And nobody knows, not even dh (he knows I read fanfiction. He just doesn't know I write it).

It’s ok. You don’t HAVE to have an embarrassing hobby. It won’t help get you a better seat in a restaurant or anything.

This is very funny in light of the fact that I do not step foot in restaurants....

I am also embarrassed by the fact that I get so "into" entertainment that I spend time and energy writing about it...

Ok so now you amothers have to share your fanfiction!
What do you write about?
Some of stories I've read have been written really well. I often wonder why the author doesn't write their own things to publish.
You might have a real talent that you can take from being a hobby to something more

I'm a sports fan. I would be embarrassed if my more yeshivish friends knew.

I might not post about all my interests (let's expand this to interests as I wouldn't call being a fan of something a hobby unless it requires something more active than sitting in front of the TV or even going to a stadium) to avoid being identified, there may be a lot of MO women in Jerusalem who can learn Gemara but if you add civil war re-enactor and harpsichord rebuilding (I lied about those) it wouldn't be hard to figure out who I am.

IRL I'm not embarassed by my interests although if you are bored by them I'll find something else to talk about because I realize that you might not be as awesome have other interests yourselfand if I've already said "awesome" (I'm also not embarassed to be a fan of John and Hank Green even though most of their audience much younger than me)

“Nerds like us are allowed to be un-ironically enthusiastic about stuff…nerds are allowed to LOVE stuff, like jump up and down in the chair, can’t control yourself, love it.” -John Green

I spend way more time daydreaming than I'd like to admit.

Also looking at pictures of pretty things on Pinterest.

I agree - to me a hobby implies something more active and perhaps creative, than a pastime or interest.
I have many of the latter - including a nice sized, carefully curated fragrance collection that I enjoy adding to (budget allowing Confused ) - but nothing that I feel qualifies as a full-fledged hobby.
I guess cooking/baking is the closest I get to that but I'm not sure it qualifies either because it is also a necessary household chore that I perform as part of everyday family life.
IDK, maybe I'm being too restrictive in my definition...
