Obtuse title for an obtuse question. We all have hobbies here, obviously. I'm a maker for fun, I build racing quads which don't fly very well, I love to play me some vidjyea games, and I have a kid.

The kid is probably the most expensive one of my hobbies, but I'm too far in for a return that I may as well just keep sinking money into her.

I've done Firefly cosplay, which me and my friends sortof set a budget on. We did it garbage style, but still had a blast.

I also build gunpla, jeez, thats a money pit.

Anywho.

I'm a rope access technician. I specialize in NDT, but I'm really a jack of all trades.I make my money traveling and climbing things, or, occasionally, I get to stay home every night.

What do y'all do for your hobby funds?

Man that job takes some cojones. I’m not one for heights, especially hanging from a rope!! Mine isn’t that glorious haha. But I do get to work on big round engines!!

So yeah, being an aircraft mechanic by day keeps the lights on and my 3D printer going (Most of the timeI have a feeling a lot of us here are a jack of all trades (and me personally, Master of None). I think it takes a lot of different skills and talents to cosplay. I seem to have a problem of diving into projects, then losing steam and not completing them. Then I’ll start something new and find myself in a endless cycle. My house is a prime example of this as well as my armor building history. House, job, and kids sports ties up a lot of my time at the moment. Not much time for hobbies lately :confused:

Nice!! I’m strictly GA, no military. So thank you for your service. I always had plans of joining as a kid. Then i lost my way as a teen. Kind of regret it now that I’m too old.
Heh. I lost my way while I was in. Bad decisions and a discharge later here we are. That chapter of my life is well behind me and was only a lesson to teach me to be better.

I'm a production associate in a chemical plant. We make industrial cleaners for textile care, hospitality, food and beverage and few other industries.
Being in a chemical plant come with its dangers. Splashes is the most common.

This is the back of my neck. Just before the holidays I had brainfart moment and disconnected the wrong line and got splashed. I was quick to an emergency shower but just not quick enough. I still got this lovely burn. Other than the discolouration there is no scarring.
