I have a compulsory drive to be creative I continually come up with new ways to make thing from jewellery to music, I love drawing and doodle anytime I have a pen in my hand (not good when I'm at work ) I'm interested in what hobbies you all have and what you do to relax.
I'm currently into databasing, which has covered a lot of intresting topics and time periods as my intrest changes.
I'm currently doing a database on Argos Catalogues and setting it out in a way you can see the price changes and the changes in our lifestyles and buying habitits. it a really fascenting database with a long term potential to keep going in the future once it is all created and done. so in 20 years from now we can see what has changed since then.
Cool, so your experimenting and documenting history?
that is really bazaar but strangely interesting at same time !
I'm like you, I love being creative. My main thing is drawing. I love drawing so much and yes I also doodle when I shouldn't! I think it's related to anxiety. I find it soothes me so much. And I end up drawing some good stuff so win win. :D I also like playing video games.
I've been wanting to learn an instrument for a while now. Thinking of ukulele as it's apparently easy and I've always liked the idea of it. ^^
doodling is considered a type of autistic stimming. i didn't know this either and so didn't mention i at my ASC assessment !

Really then doodling is my favourite stim,
That's cheered me up abit, and nugget it nice to hear you have the same compulsive expression as me it makes me feel less alone.
I never looked at it like that. It makes sense though. Sometimes I just have to doodle. It can be anything, but I just have to draw. I can be in the middle of something and will stop to do a quick doodle.
My profile picture I drew with a pyrography pen then coloured then edited the word on my phone.
I like swimming. There's something about being immersed in warm water that I find really relaxing; also my ear plugs and goggles keep the rest of the world out and I can just be alone with my thoughts and breathing as the lengths tick by. Kind of meditative for me.
I also really like jigsaws but find them dangerously addictive i.e. I really struggle to tear myself away to eat, sleep or go to work until it's finished.
I know as the catalogues I got hold date back to 1975/76 and go all the way to the present and it is really intresting to see the changes in our purchasing habitits
