Quite a sad realisation, huh? I find that interests are what make a person, well, interesting!
I have always been magically attracted to people with different habits and hobbies and am on what seems to be a neverending pursuit of creativity, to find interesting ways of spending my time.
And what's the best thing about this whole 'doing something different' thing is that literally EVERYONE can do something cool. You don't need talent or money. You just gotta do it. And it doesn't matter what you like to do.
You're an expert in cartoons from the Nineties? Cool beans. A fan of cooking stews? Nice one! You're part of a circus fitness group? Trés interessante.
Oh no, let me try and concentrate again....ahahha. Sock monkey.... look at him!!!
I am not saying you should take up a hobby to seem more interesting for other people. It's merely something you should enjoy for yourself, something you can be proud of besides work achievements and passed uni exams. Something that is low-commitment but still demands a certain level of brain activity. You'll see, it'll give you a confidence boost or at least a sense of purpose! Ayayay!!!
Now, look at my checkered mouth!! It's moving! Oh yeah....
And to finish this most excellent post with even more excellence:
