To you--what is fun? What do you like to do for the sheer pleasure of it? What would you choose to do in your spare time if there were no such thing as practical matters or other people's desires to take into consideration?
My family added one more consideration: Are there things you like to do for fun with people, and different things you like to do for fun when you're alone?
Exploring Oahu--for me, this was bliss since I had a partner-in-crime to accompany me, but it isn't the sort of thing I'd do on my own for the fun of it.
When I am with other people, however, what I find most fun is to go out to new places, to explore and go on adventures. I don't actually like exploring all that much when I'm alone--I can go to new places alone, but when I'm by myself I'm too focused on trying to memorize what my surroundings look like so that I don't get lost and figuring out where to go next to truly have fun. When I'm with others, though, I don't feel like I have to be responsible for every decision that has to be made so I can relax and enjoy the adventure.
Asking my family this question was quite interesting, as the most social among them declared, "Basically nothing that I do on my own is actually fun", while the homebodies said, "Pretty much nothing that forces me to be around other people is fun." I guess I'm somewhere in the middle between those two extremes, as I have fun both with people and without, just in different ways.
Some who I've asked have mentioned really specific activities in which they love to do, purely for the fun of it: making jigsaw puzzles or boogie boarding. Others had more of general categories: exploring nature or going to the beach. And some couldn't think of any answer to the question at all!
What about you? What do you do for the fun of it? And is there a difference between what is fun to do on your own, and what is most fun to do with other people?
