It seems like it can be pretty hard to find "free time," but we all need to take a break and do enjoyable activities. Since I was eight years old, I've had a comic book collection. This weekend, I'm looking forward to going out of town to a comic book show. It's something I haven't done in a very long time, probably over a year. I also enjoy playing golf, sketching, writing, watching movies and reading. What are your hobbies? What types of things do you do to get a break from the "real world?"

Googling "most popular hobbies in america" results in answers that are all over the map, depending on where you look. For example, the Daily Press of Hampton Roads, Virginia, says that fishing is the most popular hobby in America. On the other hand, Answers.com doesn't even list fishing in its top 10. Go figure. NotSoBoringLife.com has a pretty comprehensive list of 50 popular hobbies.
