One of the most inexpensive hobbies that I could think of is video games. Depends on how one does video games, once a person buys a video game, that person can play it infinite amount of times without ever shelling out more money. Especially single player games. I have a good five regular played computer games that I go through. If I'm board with one of them, I go on to the next one. I do also have a good three or four other games that I play once a year. But in general I find that I keep wanting to play these types of games, which is mostly conquest/simulation type of games, but I do have NASCAR as a different type of game. Now that being said. That is one of the underlining reasons why I went with video games as an early hobby.
Another one can be photography. Now one does have to shell out a camera but after that, it is just gas money and car maintenance depending on what type of photography one is doing. And maybe make some cash on the side for some one off projects. Photography can be one of the least expensive hobbies out there or even a cost zero if one has some projects on the side to counter act that cost of maintenance and gas of the car.
Creating content on the inter-webs. This is one of things that I'm also doing is sharing what I'm doing to the rest of the world. So, photography, I'm sharing what I'm experiencing. Yes, Photography is kind of two fold meaning, I'm blogging and creating content for my other website - tskjrphotos.com (an exclusive sponsor of this website and brand) - but I don't really blog about or create content about my video gaming actives that much. This blog and website is just an expression of me and what I'm going through at the time I'm doing it. Now, creating content can be as expensive as photography but it doesn't have to be, either. If one is creating vanilla content, one is at a low risk for being shut down. In the case of me, I have to have my own website to express my opinion, because my content is riskier than vanilla content. Why? I'm way too pro-life for most pro-lifers, meaning, I'm anti-abortion, anti-war, anti-government...
Finding an inexpensive hobby and sharing it (or not sharing it in the case of video games for me), can be beneficial.
Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful day! :)
Last year, I went through a minimalist phase meaning, I was calling and identifying myself as a minimalist. And in the summer of 2018, I dropped the labels and went full blown Jesus Alone. Yes, I was a born again Christian back in September of 2003. I was basically identifying myself as a Voluntaryist, Minimalist, Reformed Minded, Young Earth, Cenesationist, Calvinistic, Baptist, Jesus Freak. Basically I dropped all the labels and stick with Jesus Freak or Biblical Christian. Sure I still believe in all the labels in some degree or another but I was putting on more and more labels. This complexity has shifted from material to labels. So, I decided to cut my financial life as well and live as simple as possible.
Why Living Simple?:
Living simple is something one could strive for if they so choose. Our lives are being more and more complex over the last sever decades. I'm mentally living a simple life. I basically stripped down everything mentally and not being emotionally attached to anything or anyone, except Jesus (at least I tried to). Living a simple life is a life of saying no, to a lot of things, but saying yes to things that one values. Right now in my life, I'm supper focused on saving and paying down my debts because I have a job that pays well and pays the bills. Hence, my underlining reason why I have chosen to stay do this blog once a week and pay for the coffee at a local coffee shop (for their internet) because I kicked out my internet bill last month (April 2019). It is better (financially) to pay for a $2.25 coffee at a local coffee shop and use their internet for several hours one day a week, instead of paying internet access at my home which was $40 per month. And I don't have to go to the coffee shop if I don't want to spend the money. So, I spend about $9 - $11.25 per month for fast internet (faster than my mobile hot-spot because I have a Blackberry KeyOne not a KeyTwo or a more advanced smartphone. If I had my more expensive phone, I could in theory get my mobile hot-spot much faster but that would be a cost of $800 to $1,200 for me to upgrade to the latest smart phone, in which I'm unwilling to do until October 2019 or October 2020, which would be my two year anniversary of my Blackberry KeyOne if I buy it in October of 2019. I might wait another year for an upgrade for my smart phone, depends on what happens in October of 2019 in terms of smart phone market. I might switch to another device? Depending on what is out there and the price points of smartphones. That is my thoughts this week. I do have everything that I have done in the past on this website under the about section somewhere. I don't like "deleting" my work in terms of my blogs and other content that I post on my website. Sure it looks clean but if you dig around it isn't as clean as one thinks.
This is a blog that is about living a simple Jesus Center life. This blog will be a personal blog of Terence Shane Kruger Jr. and I will be talking about different things on this blog. I will post stuff weekly either on Friday or Saturday every week.
