Suggestions Wanted...

I need something fun to do that does not involve computers, and gets me out of the house. I’d thought about taking some acting classes, but as much as I miss theatre and being on stage, I don’t seem to miss it enough to commit to the cost (and I really do miss it). If I had enough money, I’d take regular riding lessons – and would commit to that cost readily – but there does not seem to be any horse places nearby that are easy to reach or cheap. I miss having the companionship of a larger animal, and the freedom involved in just going off and doing your own thing with one.

I am not interested in table top gaming.

Post your suggestions here.

Dancing? There are some social dances about (swing and walktz and stuff).

Just off the top of my head (these are the things I tell myself to do): join a gym, start riding a bike, take dance lessons, volunteer at the library, volunteer anywhere, go for long walks, go hiking, volunteer at the animal shelter...?

SCA (http://www.sca.org) - you can get involved a little or a lot, and people are generally newbie friendly!

Book clubs, rock climbing, crafty hobbies of any ilk, ummm... dance classes? Community centers sometimes have them at little or no cost... or other types of classes, possibly. Foster sit pets. Be a Big Sister or something similar. Board games... painting... biking, jogging... these are really random ideas. Some of them wouldn't get you out of the house unless you could find a discussion/support group to swap ideas with.

Check out your local Adult Education classes. The one around here has tons of stuff from cooking to crafting to tai chi and all at a pretty darn good price. Get a catalog and see what interests you.

Disc golf! Also known as Frisbee golf! The discs are what you pay for, and then the courses are (generally) free! And in the States, there are hordes of courses! If you want to see where they are around you, check out http://pdga.com/course/index.php

Someone was supposed to teach me how to play, but they never did and now they moved away :/

Basically you just throw the frisbee toward the 'hole' and try to get it there in as few throws as possible. :)

Join one of the writer's groups, like the one Steph hosts now in Reisterstown.

Volunteer your time at a seniors home or homeless shelter. Dunno if that's exactly fun.

Join the Y and go swimming.

Find some kind of quilting club or something crafty.

Learn a musical instrument. Go take lessons.

I know how to play the flute and the clarinet, but I have no real aptitude in them :) Or, if I did, I never reached that potential.
