there's been the next great novel, or at least a short story or
memoir lurking deep within you for years, then let it out.

work, or knowledge if it's a hobby.

tropical aquarium. This
is a very relaxing hobby and if you end up with more fish than you
started with, then you can sell them locally or trade to a pet

Finding bargains can be fun for you, and it could turn into
a business as well.
