    Lift weights. If you aren't super experienced, take it slow, look up some pointers, and just be steady. You won't see results right away,but you will in time.

    If you get really into it, it can be a very time consuming hobby. Or you can keep it casual and just be more healthy/meet some new people

    Take up jogging or swimming. If you don't have a car, go cycling. If you want more plastic figures to put on your shelves, I would suggest getting into Gundam model kit building.

    If you're gonna be one of those "GIVE ME A KISS OW WHAT THE FUCK IT'S JUST A PRANK THERE'S A CAMERA" type of YouTubers, don't.

    Good hobbies to have.

    Tinkering: Do you have a curious mind? Do you wonder how stuff works? Try taking apart various broken appliances and see what makes them work. Eventually you can learn how to fix things, and what you can't can be recycled for the metal and E scrap.

    Wood working: It can start as simple as whittling. A block of wood and a pocket knife are all you need to start, and as you learn you can move up to more advanced things. This is especially useful as you create something, learn to fix things, and gain a skill.

    Archery: One of my favorites. A little expensive to start if you go with the ultra high tech compound bows, but traditional style longbows and recurve bows are very rewarding to shoot and more affordable. It's actually much harder than it looks, and it's a great workout for the arms, shoulders, and back. A great head clearing exercise too once you get into it. When you're really focused on the process it becomes an almost zen like meditation.

    Art: Drawing is fun, but you have to be a creatively inclined person already. Read some books, and maybe take a class. It's probably my greatest passion in life.

    Gardening: Growing food or medicinal plants is fun, but requires patience, an understanding of the climate, and of course space to do it in (though container gardening is a good way to deal with the space issue).

    I think a hobby is not just something to do, but something that will involve learning skills and makes you a better person.

    Train Models are awesome, and building little ships or cars out of wood can be fun.
    Video games can be fun too. Writing stories can be fun too.

    Got to go with a few of GigatronSama's suggestion.

    Art is a great hobby to get into. I'd recommend getting experience with tablet drawing as it allows quick design and you can post to the internet rather quickly. Who knows, you may even make some money with an online comic book.

    Gardening is a very relaxing hobby. Though I would take it a step further and suggest Bonsai. Caring for, and shaping Bonsai is extremely rewarding.

    Lastly, music. Try learning to play an instrument. It can be incredibly satisfying, plus chicks dig musicians.

    stamp collecting. bottle cap collecting.

    i would suggest getting into video games but it too can be expensive. especially retro collecting.

    you can get into making model ships. or legos.

    you have very ideas here from your fellow tfw2005-ers but what subjects interest you or what would you always wanted to learn?

    that's the real question and once you answered those questions perhaps finding that hobby or interest would be easier

    not knowing were your from, but national parks are a great way to get out and explore a little with limited effort

    If you like photography and comics, write a comic for the Funnies forum. I'd recommend reading Out of the Dead Land, Warring at Play, Out of the Box, and Hearts of Plastic for reference.

    Another suggestion. Take up an instrument. Piano's a good place to start.
