Insights Into Teens: Episode 99 “Hobbies and Activities”

This week we discuss the importance of teens having hobbies and activities to occupy their free time. We’ll look at an interesting study from the Department of Health and Human Services that details how teens spend their time throughout the day. We’ll look at some of the potential pitfalls of misspent free time by teens and we’ll talk about what productive downtime is and how it helps teens. We’ll also detail 10 significant benefits that teens gain through hobbies before finally taking a look at some of the hobbies and activities that Madison tends to enjoy.

[SEGMENT 1]

Why Teenagers should have Hobbies

http://bit.ly/3kuQjZf 

  • On any given weekday during the school year, the average American teenager spends about eight and a half hours sleeping and about six and a half hours in school.
  • This leaves nine hours of their waking time unaccounted for. Which leaves us with an important question: what do our teenagers do during those nine hours?
  • The following numbers were published by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in a survey for 2017.
  • The data for hours spent in school comes from the National Center for Education Statistics.
  • How American Teens Spend Their Time
    • Sleeping: 8.6 hours per day (8 hours 36 minutes)
    • At School: 6.6 hours per day (6 hours 36 minutes)
    • Media/Communications: 2.3 hours per day (2 hours 18 minutes)
    • Other Activities: 1.7 hours per day (1 hour 42 minutes)
    • Leisure Activities: 1.4 hours per day (1 hour 24 minutes)
    • Eating/Drinking: 1 hour per day
    • Grooming: 0.9 hours per day, or 54 minutes
    • Playing sports: O.7 hours per day, or 42 minutes
    • Working/Volunteering: 0.5 hours per day, or 30 minutes
    • Doing Homework: 0.2 hours per day, or 12 minutes
    • Religious Activities: 0.1 hours per day, or 6 minutes
  • The survey included data collected from all American adolescents, including teens not enrolled in high school and teens already in college.
  • However, for American teens enrolled in high school, the average time spent doing homework comes closer to an hour: fifty-four minutes, to be exact.
  • That number comes from a separate section of the HHS survey.
  • So, let’s revise our spare time calculation.
  • If our adolescents spend about eight and a half hours asleep, about seven and a half hours on school-related activities, and an hour eating, what do they do for the remaining eight hours of the day?
  • By the numbers, they spend about sixty percent (about five hours) of that time doing things that we, as adults, would probably consider non-productive, such as using media/television, grooming, and “other” activities.
  • Granted, teenagers need downtime just like we all do: time when we’re basically doing nothing but relaxing and recharging.
  • But do teens need five hours a day of downtime?
  • Probably not.

[SEGMENT 2]

How kids spend their free time and why it matters

  • For the sake of this article, we’ll consider all extracurricular activities – including school clubs, school/non-school sports, and individual pursuits like reading, writing, and playing music – as hobbies.
  • Think of a hobby as anything a teenager does outside of school hours that’s not compulsory and they don’t earn money doing.
  • Viewed through that lens, research shows adolescents with hobbies are less likely to engage in high-risk behaviors compared to adolescents without hobbies.
  • Data from a wide-ranging meta-analysis of how teens spend their time shows that teens who don’t spend any time at all doing extracurricular activities are:
    • 57% more likely to drop out of high school
    • 49% more likely to use drugs during their high school years
    • 37% more likely to become teen parents during their high school years
    • 35% more likely to smoke cigarettes during their high school years
    • 27% more likely to get arrested during their high school years
  • Productive Downtime
     
    • Hobbies give teenagers a chance to meet new people, discover new passions, develop skills outside of school, and do something all kids (yes, teens are part kid) should do: have fun.
    • You don’t need peer-reviewed scientific studies to tell you that.
    • But you might need a little reminder about adolescent development to drive home the importance of hobbies.
    • Two of the most important things that happen during the teen years are identity formation and differentiation.
      • Identity formation is exactly what it sounds like: it’s the process of becoming an individual with an entire set of personal wants, needs, skills, and preferences.
      • Differentiation is part of identity formation, but differentiation is special. It’s the formation of an identity outside and apart from parents and family.
    • Hobbies are a great way for teens to form an identity outside their family.
    • And hobbies that take place after school hours can be even better.
    • They also give teenagers a chance to forge their own path outside of the watchful eye of parents and teachers.
    • While in school, teachers act as an extension of the family.
    • That’s the law of the land: both common law dating back centuries and the U.S. Supreme court holding that school officials can act in loco parentis, or in the place of the parents.
    • But things like sports and band are different: it’s common knowledge that figures like sports coaches and band directors – while they’re coaching or directing a band – are neither teachers nor parents.
    • They help teens learn and grow in new and different ways, under a unique set of rules and norms – all while teaching them skills they don’t learn at home or in class.
    • In addition to facilitating basic psychological needs, hobbies benefit teens on many levels which we’ll talk about in our next segment

[SEGMENT 3] 

Benefits of Hobbies

  1. Discover Passions
    1. A teenager might not know they love art, sports, computer coding, cooking, etc. until they give it a shot.
        
  2. Develop Skills
    1. Teens can make great leaps forward when they focus on something they choose and spend time doing it on their terms.
        
  3. Meet New People
    1. Playing sports, learning a musical instrument, or joining a club gets kids out there meeting people they wouldn’t ordinarily meet.
        
  4. Build Self-Esteem
    1. When a teenager succeeds at something related to their hobby, such as learning a new song, scoring a goal, or writing a poem, it builds their confidence, their sense of self-worth, and increases their overall mental and emotional well-being.
        
  5. Feel a Sense of Achievement
    1. This is like self-esteem but it’s not the same thing.
    2. Self-esteem is general, this is specific.
    3. A teenager who takes a liking to carpentry, for instance, might build a table, a chair, a deck, or even a clubhouse, then step back and say, “Wow. I did that.”
    4. That’s a special feeling everyone should experience, especially teens.
        
  6. Manage Time
    1. Participating in hobbies teaches teens how to use their time wisely.
    2. Instead of spending all afternoon on the couch, they learn to allocate time toward their hobbies because they want to, not because they have to.
    3. They find out how to fit their hobby-time in with homework, family commitments, and social time – and that’s not always easy.
        
  7. Find Out Who They Are
    1. Most adults know developing an identity takes trial and error: you try one thing, you don’t like it, so you try another.
    2. The teenage years are the perfect time to start this process.
        
  8. Regulate Emotions
    1. Developing a skill takes time and patience.
    2. That means learning how to deal with emotions like anger and frustration.
    3. Time devoted to a hobby inevitably means managing the ups and downs one encounters along the way.
    4. This skill translates directly into almost every aspect of adult life.
        
  9. Handle Adversity
    1. While pursuing hobbies, things don’t always go perfectly.
    2. In sports, for instance, losing happens.
    3. Teenagers who understand how to rise above the bad and look toward the good get a head start on life.
    4. As adults know, adversity happens.
    5. The sooner an individual learns to deal with it, the better.
        
  10. Learn the Value of Hard Work
    1. While we don’t necessarily agree that all the good things in life come only from hard work, we do agree that without hard work, it’s tough to accomplish most things of significant value.
    2. When a teen chooses a hobby, they’ll have to spend time working at it in order to become proficient.
    3. And if the hobby is a sport or a fine art, they’re lucky: they get to spend a lifetime perfecting their craft.
    4. In the teenage years, this type of effort lays the foundation for achievement throughout adulthood.

0:03:39.920,0:03:47.840
are we ready to get started sure all

0:03:42.319,0:03:47.840
right let’s get started

0:03:49.519,0:03:54.879
so why teenagers should have hobbies

0:03:53.360,0:03:57.400
this comes from a different source that

0:03:54.879,0:03:59.599
we haven’t used in the past called

0:03:57.400,0:04:01.519
evolvetreatment.com

0:03:59.599,0:04:03.519
and they they kind of talk in general

0:04:01.519,0:04:05.040
terms here they say on any given weekday

0:04:03.519,0:04:06.959
during the school year the average

0:04:05.040,0:04:09.200
american teenager

0:04:06.959,0:04:10.080
spends about eight and a half hours

0:04:09.200,0:04:12.959
sleeping

0:04:10.080,0:04:14.799
and about six and a half hours in school

0:04:12.959,0:04:17.040
so this leaves

0:04:14.799,0:04:18.880
about nine hours of their waking time

0:04:17.040,0:04:20.720
unaccounted for

0:04:18.880,0:04:23.520
which leaves us with an important

0:04:20.720,0:04:26.720
question what do our teenagers do

0:04:23.520,0:04:28.320
during those nine hours before we get

0:04:26.720,0:04:29.759
into some of the surveying information

0:04:28.320,0:04:30.560
because they do have a couple of surveys

0:04:29.759,0:04:33.120
in here with

0:04:30.560,0:04:35.280
with details let me ask you what do you

0:04:33.120,0:04:37.199
do with your free time when you’re not

0:04:35.280,0:04:40.840
doing work or sleeping or

0:04:37.199,0:04:43.919
you know whatever else what is your

0:04:40.840,0:04:46.880
primary focus in your free time

0:04:43.919,0:04:47.680
uh i guess my focus and my free time

0:04:46.880,0:04:51.040
would be

0:04:47.680,0:04:53.759
to kind of like de-stress from

0:04:51.040,0:04:54.320
some of the work i might have had um and

0:04:53.759,0:04:57.600
come

0:04:54.320,0:05:00.639
and like find ways to

0:04:57.600,0:05:03.919
you know just kind of relax and chill

0:05:00.639,0:05:04.880
um and of course those include some of

0:05:03.919,0:05:08.479
my hobbies

0:05:04.880,0:05:11.199
that calm me down um and

0:05:08.479,0:05:12.160
yeah for more whenever i’m not working

0:05:11.199,0:05:14.880
i’m either

0:05:12.160,0:05:17.120
do trying to work on something when i’m

0:05:14.880,0:05:19.280
not doing school or sleeping i’m either

0:05:17.120,0:05:20.320
working on something else that i want to

0:05:19.280,0:05:22.800
work on

0:05:20.320,0:05:24.800
normally something creative or i’m

0:05:22.800,0:05:28.000
playing a game or watching youtube

0:05:24.800,0:05:30.639
okay interesting

0:05:28.000,0:05:32.400
so the following numbers that we’re

0:05:30.639,0:05:33.840
going to talk about

0:05:32.400,0:05:36.240
were published by the department of

0:05:33.840,0:05:38.960
health and human services

0:05:36.240,0:05:39.680
and collected by the borough bureau of

0:05:38.960,0:05:43.120
labor

0:05:39.680,0:05:45.440
and statistics in a 2017 survey so

0:05:43.120,0:05:47.440
they’re a few years old

0:05:45.440,0:05:49.520
the data for hours spent in school comes

0:05:47.440,0:05:51.120
from the national centers for education

0:05:49.520,0:05:53.520
and statistics so

0:05:51.120,0:05:55.440
what they look at here is how american

0:05:53.520,0:05:59.280
teens spend their time

0:05:55.440,0:06:01.360
so as we said already sleeping makes up

0:05:59.280,0:06:02.319
a large part of that time and that’s

0:06:01.360,0:06:06.400
roughly

0:06:02.319,0:06:10.000
8.6 hours we talked about school

0:06:06.400,0:06:13.600
school takes up about 6.6 hours

0:06:10.000,0:06:18.400
so the next largest block is media and

0:06:13.600,0:06:18.400
communication so this is digesting media

0:06:18.479,0:06:24.560
social media i assume and that’s about

0:06:21.520,0:06:28.560
2.3 hours of your free time

0:06:24.560,0:06:31.360
do you think you spend 2.3 hours

0:06:28.560,0:06:32.160
you know consuming media or being

0:06:31.360,0:06:35.039
involved

0:06:32.160,0:06:36.800
in social media or anything like that

0:06:35.039,0:06:40.000
with your friends

0:06:36.800,0:06:42.880
not really i don’t actually have

0:06:40.000,0:06:45.039
really any media platf like any major

0:06:42.880,0:06:47.680
social media platforms

0:06:45.039,0:06:48.240
i don’t entirely socialize a lot on the

0:06:47.680,0:06:50.800
internet

0:06:48.240,0:06:51.280
i do have friends that i text now and

0:06:50.800,0:06:53.599
then

0:06:51.280,0:06:54.800
and i do have kids messenger where i’m

0:06:53.599,0:06:57.759
able to talk to

0:06:54.800,0:06:58.639
my friends and family uh but other than

0:06:57.759,0:07:02.319
that i really

0:06:58.639,0:07:06.479
don’t communicate with people outside of

0:07:02.319,0:07:09.599
um school um with media with

0:07:06.479,0:07:11.360
like social media and stuff okay so the

0:07:09.599,0:07:14.560
next thing they talk about is

0:07:11.360,0:07:17.039
is non-specific activities they label it

0:07:14.560,0:07:18.400
as other activities that’s 1.7 hours

0:07:17.039,0:07:19.919
that one’s kind of vague we’ll leave

0:07:18.400,0:07:21.680
that one alone

0:07:19.919,0:07:23.280
the next thing they talk about is

0:07:21.680,0:07:26.319
leisure activities

0:07:23.280,0:07:28.720
1.4 hours now

0:07:26.319,0:07:30.800
the way the survey asks these questions

0:07:28.720,0:07:31.680
it’s unclear if leisure activities

0:07:30.800,0:07:33.440
include

0:07:31.680,0:07:34.960
watching media because i would i would

0:07:33.440,0:07:36.720
include watching me as part of my

0:07:34.960,0:07:39.759
leisure activities

0:07:36.720,0:07:44.400
um what do you do personally

0:07:39.759,0:07:45.440
for leisure activities um probably

0:07:44.400,0:07:49.199
watching

0:07:45.440,0:07:52.560
um youtube videos or tv

0:07:49.199,0:07:56.560
would be one um drawing

0:07:52.560,0:07:58.560
and doing and doing creative work would

0:07:56.560,0:08:00.879
be another and i’d also

0:07:58.560,0:08:02.400
probably say gaming as well so that’s

0:08:00.879,0:08:04.240
all leisure activity

0:08:02.400,0:08:05.440
in your book when you think about it

0:08:04.240,0:08:07.440
pretty much

0:08:05.440,0:08:10.319
see when i think leisure activity i

0:08:07.440,0:08:14.319
think something that’s that’s more

0:08:10.319,0:08:16.720
relaxing you know maybe you know just

0:08:14.319,0:08:18.400
vegging out taking a nap reading a book

0:08:16.720,0:08:21.280
something like that

0:08:18.400,0:08:23.280
that i use for leisure activity it’s you

0:08:21.280,0:08:26.160
know it’s subjective depending on

0:08:23.280,0:08:27.360
what you do to relax yeah so the next

0:08:26.160,0:08:30.479
thing they talk about

0:08:27.360,0:08:32.159
is eating and drinking which we all do

0:08:30.479,0:08:34.880
what i find interesting here is it’s

0:08:32.159,0:08:37.440
only about an hour so you’re

0:08:34.880,0:08:38.399
what the survey suggests is that teens

0:08:37.440,0:08:41.839
are consuming

0:08:38.399,0:08:45.839
three meals a day plus any snacks in

0:08:41.839,0:08:47.600
in just an hour a day wow um

0:08:45.839,0:08:48.959
i mean i just think of like family

0:08:47.600,0:08:50.160
dinners and our family dinners are

0:08:48.959,0:08:53.680
usually

0:08:50.160,0:08:55.760
20 minutes each 30 minutes each maybe

0:08:53.680,0:08:57.920
you know probably another 15 or 20

0:08:55.760,0:08:59.760
minutes for lunch and then however long

0:08:57.920,0:09:01.440
breakfast is so

0:08:59.760,0:09:04.080
i don’t know i guess i expected that

0:09:01.440,0:09:06.240
number to be a little bit higher

0:09:04.080,0:09:08.240
how about grooming how long how much

0:09:06.240,0:09:11.279
time do you take grooming you know

0:09:08.240,0:09:13.600
bathing and brushing your hair brushing

0:09:11.279,0:09:16.800
your teeth and all that stuff

0:09:13.600,0:09:17.360
um well i definitely say that i probably

0:09:16.800,0:09:19.200
take

0:09:17.360,0:09:20.399
longer to brush my teeth than most

0:09:19.200,0:09:24.000
people mainly do

0:09:20.399,0:09:27.040
to my braces um showering

0:09:24.000,0:09:29.920
i kind of shower i think a little longer

0:09:27.040,0:09:31.279
you kind of complain about that because

0:09:29.920,0:09:34.240
i don’t know i like how

0:09:31.279,0:09:36.399
the water feels brushing my hair i’m

0:09:34.240,0:09:37.920
relatively quick with that as well as

0:09:36.399,0:09:42.640
getting dressed and stuff

0:09:37.920,0:09:45.680
so i i mean i don’t

0:09:42.640,0:09:48.720
i don’t particularly like put extra time

0:09:45.680,0:09:50.560
into looking and cleaning my like

0:09:48.720,0:09:52.240
i definitely put as much time as i need

0:09:50.560,0:09:54.720
to into

0:09:52.240,0:09:56.320
cleaning and some of that i just needed

0:09:54.720,0:10:00.399
to put extra time into

0:09:56.320,0:10:02.000
for certain reasons so i’d say i take a

0:10:00.399,0:10:04.320
decent amount of time grooming

0:10:02.000,0:10:05.600
okay well and and they said survey says

0:10:04.320,0:10:08.880
the average

0:10:05.600,0:10:12.000
amount of time that teens take is about

0:10:08.880,0:10:14.000
0.9 hours or 54 minutes um

0:10:12.000,0:10:15.600
and i think based on what you described

0:10:14.000,0:10:18.800
that’s fairly accurate

0:10:15.600,0:10:20.320
for what you do the next few they

0:10:18.800,0:10:22.959
they go through pretty quick one is

0:10:20.320,0:10:25.200
playing sports the other is working or

0:10:22.959,0:10:27.200
volunteering

0:10:25.200,0:10:29.200
doing homework i think was really a

0:10:27.200,0:10:32.800
surprise here they talk about

0:10:29.200,0:10:35.440
doing homework takes up about .2 hours a

0:10:32.800,0:10:37.040
day or 12 minutes a day

0:10:35.440,0:10:38.480
now there is a caveat to that that we’ll

0:10:37.040,0:10:40.560
talk about a little bit but

0:10:38.480,0:10:42.320
how long do you typically take when you

0:10:40.560,0:10:45.600
when you do your homework

0:10:42.320,0:10:48.800
not 12 minutes i take

0:10:45.600,0:10:52.000
at least an hour if i’m lucky

0:10:48.800,0:10:52.000
like i take

0:10:52.880,0:10:55.920
i take a decent amount of time with my

0:10:54.640,0:10:58.240
homework yeah well

0:10:55.920,0:11:00.240
and and you know you’re in a lot of

0:10:58.240,0:11:02.640
advanced classes too so as a result you

0:11:00.240,0:11:05.040
tend to get a much higher workload too

0:11:02.640,0:11:06.720
yeah so the last one they talk about

0:11:05.040,0:11:08.560
here is religious activities where they

0:11:06.720,0:11:10.880
take about six minutes a day

0:11:08.560,0:11:12.480
and i’m gonna go on a limb here i don’t

0:11:10.880,0:11:14.000
do it but i’m assuming it’s praying

0:11:12.480,0:11:17.040
before you go to bed or something like

0:11:14.000,0:11:19.279
that yeah so the survey included data

0:11:17.040,0:11:20.399
collected from all american adolescents

0:11:19.279,0:11:22.560
including teens

0:11:20.399,0:11:24.320
not enrolled in high school and teens

0:11:22.560,0:11:26.240
already in college

0:11:24.320,0:11:29.519
however the american teens enrolled in

0:11:26.240,0:11:32.399
high school for the american teens

0:11:29.519,0:11:34.560
enrolled in high school the average time

0:11:32.399,0:11:35.760
spent doing homework comes closer to an

0:11:34.560,0:11:37.680
hour

0:11:35.760,0:11:39.440
about 54 minutes is that a little bit

0:11:37.680,0:11:41.440
more accurate for what you spend

0:11:39.440,0:11:43.440
yeah yeah and i think that’s what it was

0:11:41.440,0:11:45.200
is that because of the diversity of

0:11:43.440,0:11:48.640
of the teens that were pulled it kind of

0:11:45.200,0:11:48.640
brought that average down a little bit

0:11:48.959,0:11:53.920
um so

0:11:52.399,0:11:55.519
one of the things that they talk about

0:11:53.920,0:11:57.760
here is that if our adolescents spend

0:11:55.519,0:12:00.079
about eight and a half hours of sleep

0:11:57.760,0:12:02.560
about seven and a half hours on school

0:12:00.079,0:12:04.240
related activities and an hour eating

0:12:02.560,0:12:05.680
what do they do for the remaining time

0:12:04.240,0:12:08.399
of the day

0:12:05.680,0:12:09.279
and by the numbers they spend about 60

0:12:08.399,0:12:11.680
percent

0:12:09.279,0:12:12.800
or about five hours of that time doing

0:12:11.680,0:12:15.920
things

0:12:12.800,0:12:16.480
that we as adults would probably

0:12:15.920,0:12:18.720
consider

0:12:16.480,0:12:21.040
non-productive such as using media or

0:12:18.720,0:12:23.920
television grooming or other activities

0:12:21.040,0:12:25.680
uh quick thing why would grooming be

0:12:23.920,0:12:27.360
considered unproductive

0:12:25.680,0:12:29.040
i i don’t know and i kind of disagree

0:12:27.360,0:12:30.959
with that but because grooming is such a

0:12:29.040,0:12:34.320
small percentage of that time i’m

0:12:30.959,0:12:36.480
i’m not gonna really call that one out

0:12:34.320,0:12:39.200
um they say granite teenagers need

0:12:36.480,0:12:40.800
downtime just like we all do

0:12:39.200,0:12:42.880
when we’re basically doing nothing but

0:12:40.800,0:12:45.440
relaxing and recharging

0:12:42.880,0:12:46.880
but do teens need five hours a day of

0:12:45.440,0:12:48.320
downtime

0:12:46.880,0:12:50.320
now i’m going to put that question

0:12:48.320,0:12:53.839
directly to you do you think teens need

0:12:50.320,0:12:53.839
five hours of down time a day

0:12:54.639,0:13:02.720
well it depends on the teen really

0:12:59.279,0:13:05.120
it depends like the situation when

0:13:02.720,0:13:06.320
like it depends on the mental situation

0:13:05.120,0:13:09.279
basically

0:13:06.320,0:13:09.839
some teens can be extremely stressed

0:13:09.279,0:13:13.279
from

0:13:09.839,0:13:16.560
school home sleep anything like that

0:13:13.279,0:13:19.279
and have a specific mental issue

0:13:16.560,0:13:20.160
where they probably need at least five

0:13:19.279,0:13:23.600
hours of down

0:13:20.160,0:13:26.639
time to calm down and just

0:13:23.600,0:13:29.440
you know de-stress and

0:13:26.639,0:13:30.240
yeah not every teen goes every teen does

0:13:29.440,0:13:32.720
have

0:13:30.240,0:13:33.760
something that stresses them out but not

0:13:32.720,0:13:36.880
every teen teen’s gonna need

0:13:33.760,0:13:40.079
five hours of relaxation um

0:13:36.880,0:13:41.760
to keep them calm but some teens do so

0:13:40.079,0:13:43.440
it’s really depend it really just

0:13:41.760,0:13:44.800
depends on the mental state of the teen

0:13:43.440,0:13:46.639
if we’re thinking about it

0:13:44.800,0:13:49.120
and i would agree with that i think it’s

0:13:46.639,0:13:51.839
kind of a subjective call

0:13:49.120,0:13:53.680
just as much as i think that downtime

0:13:51.839,0:13:55.839
activity is a subjective call because

0:13:53.680,0:13:58.800
some of the stuff that you do

0:13:55.839,0:14:00.800
um like watching videos you know you

0:13:58.800,0:14:02.320
watch youtube videos which themselves

0:14:00.800,0:14:03.839
are entertaining

0:14:02.320,0:14:05.600
but a lot of times they have an

0:14:03.839,0:14:07.519
educational aspect where you’re learning

0:14:05.600,0:14:10.000
something from it

0:14:07.519,0:14:11.040
you may you enjoy you listed you know

0:14:10.000,0:14:12.720
drawing

0:14:11.040,0:14:14.480
well drawing is something that is

0:14:12.720,0:14:16.639
relaxing to you but it also

0:14:14.480,0:14:18.399
hones your artistic skills too so it’s

0:14:16.639,0:14:20.880
not non-productive

0:14:18.399,0:14:22.160
yeah um so it is kind of subjective yeah

0:14:20.880,0:14:24.480
if you’re sitting around playing video

0:14:22.160,0:14:25.839
games for five hours a day

0:14:24.480,0:14:27.760
you know you’re playing call of duty or

0:14:25.839,0:14:30.240
something like that and you’re not doing

0:14:27.760,0:14:31.680
anything productive at that time

0:14:30.240,0:14:33.760
that’s probably the angle they’re

0:14:31.680,0:14:34.880
looking at here but i don’t think that’s

0:14:33.760,0:14:36.959
always the case

0:14:34.880,0:14:38.639
yeah so let’s take a quick break and

0:14:36.959,0:14:40.800
we’ll come back and we’ll talk about how

0:14:38.639,0:14:45.839
kids spend their free time and why it

0:14:40.800,0:14:45.839
matters how they spend that free time

0:14:48.620,0:14:54.560

0:15:53.759,0:15:58.480
welcome back we are talking hobbies and

0:15:56.560,0:15:59.759
activities today

0:15:58.480,0:16:01.680
and we’re going to talk about how kids

0:15:59.759,0:16:03.120
spend their free time and why that

0:16:01.680,0:16:05.360
matters

0:16:03.120,0:16:06.720
for the sake of this discussion here

0:16:05.360,0:16:09.600
we’ll consider that the

0:16:06.720,0:16:11.360
extracurricular activities including

0:16:09.600,0:16:13.279
school clubs

0:16:11.360,0:16:15.279
school and non-school sports and

0:16:13.279,0:16:16.160
individual pursuits like reading writing

0:16:15.279,0:16:19.680
and playing music

0:16:16.160,0:16:20.639
are hobbies think of a hobby as anything

0:16:19.680,0:16:22.399
a teenager does

0:16:20.639,0:16:23.759
outside of school hours that’s not

0:16:22.399,0:16:26.800
compulsory

0:16:23.759,0:16:29.920
and they don’t earn money doing

0:16:26.800,0:16:32.079
viewed through that lens research shows

0:16:29.920,0:16:32.959
adolescents with hobbies are less likely

0:16:32.079,0:16:36.000
to engage

0:16:32.959,0:16:39.040
in high risk behaviors compared to

0:16:36.000,0:16:41.519
adolescents with hobbies now let me just

0:16:39.040,0:16:43.040
leave that one right there and ask do

0:16:41.519,0:16:45.519
you think that that’s an accurate

0:16:43.040,0:16:48.079
assessment based on your experience

0:16:45.519,0:16:50.240
i mean like you said before like without

0:16:48.079,0:16:53.360
me really realizing it um

0:16:50.240,0:16:55.839
i learned through some of my hobbies and

0:16:53.360,0:16:57.600
i learned valuable skills i enhanced

0:16:55.839,0:16:59.680
those skills and

0:16:57.600,0:17:00.959
yeah i definitely think hobbies are very

0:16:59.680,0:17:03.360
beneficial

0:17:00.959,0:17:04.000
also there’s also the mental aspect of

0:17:03.360,0:17:07.280
it keeping

0:17:04.000,0:17:11.679
kids somewhat sane making them

0:17:07.280,0:17:15.600
happy and somewhat seen i like that

0:17:11.679,0:17:18.799
yeah so i definitely think that hobbies

0:17:15.600,0:17:20.000
are very beneficial and in stopping

0:17:18.799,0:17:24.240
teens from

0:17:20.000,0:17:27.360
doing risky from doing risky behaviors

0:17:24.240,0:17:27.919
because they are they’re normally

0:17:27.360,0:17:30.640
learning

0:17:27.919,0:17:32.559
through their hobbies and they have and

0:17:30.640,0:17:33.120
they’re getting positive emotions from

0:17:32.559,0:17:35.200
it

0:17:33.120,0:17:36.400
which stop them from seeking other

0:17:35.200,0:17:39.679
things that they feel

0:17:36.400,0:17:42.160
might help them and the data that this

0:17:39.679,0:17:43.039
uh study cites would seem to agree with

0:17:42.160,0:17:45.600
you

0:17:43.039,0:17:46.080
so they cite data from a wide range of

0:17:45.600,0:17:48.559
what they

0:17:46.080,0:17:50.000
call meta-analysis so they’re pulling

0:17:48.559,0:17:51.520
from multiple

0:17:50.000,0:17:53.440
different sources that didn’t

0:17:51.520,0:17:56.320
specifically study

0:17:53.440,0:17:57.039
this effect so they’re kind of reading

0:17:56.320,0:18:00.160
into this

0:17:57.039,0:18:02.240
effect kind of as a secondary notion

0:18:00.160,0:18:03.760
okay so they looked at how teens spend

0:18:02.240,0:18:05.679
their time

0:18:03.760,0:18:07.200
and it shows that teens who don’t spend

0:18:05.679,0:18:11.520
any time at all

0:18:07.200,0:18:14.640
doing extracurricular activities are 57

0:18:11.520,0:18:18.559
more likely to drop out of high school

0:18:14.640,0:18:21.600
they are 49 percent more likely to use

0:18:18.559,0:18:24.000
drugs during their high school years

0:18:21.600,0:18:25.120
they’re 37 percent more likely to become

0:18:24.000,0:18:28.240
teen parents

0:18:25.120,0:18:30.400
during their high school years they are

0:18:28.240,0:18:31.440
35 percent more likely to smoke

0:18:30.400,0:18:34.080
cigarettes

0:18:31.440,0:18:36.720
during their high school years and

0:18:34.080,0:18:38.080
finally they are 27 percent more likely

0:18:36.720,0:18:42.799
to get arrested

0:18:38.080,0:18:45.520
during their high school years so

0:18:42.799,0:18:46.240
of those things what are you the most uh

0:18:45.520,0:18:50.080
likely to

0:18:46.240,0:18:52.320
to have happen to you um

0:18:50.080,0:18:53.679
the answer is none of this right yeah i

0:18:52.320,0:18:55.679
wouldn’t say

0:18:53.679,0:18:57.120
i wouldn’t say any of them because i

0:18:55.679,0:18:59.039
don’t feel like i’d ever

0:18:57.120,0:19:00.480
like do something to get arrested i

0:18:59.039,0:19:01.760
don’t feel like i’d ever want to drop

0:19:00.480,0:19:03.440
out of high school

0:19:01.760,0:19:04.799
i would definitely not want to use drugs

0:19:03.440,0:19:07.600
or alcohol

0:19:04.799,0:19:08.840
um i probably wouldn’t become a teen

0:19:07.600,0:19:12.000
parent because i’m very

0:19:08.840,0:19:14.960
against that stuff um

0:19:12.000,0:19:15.520
and i probably wouldn’t smoke right so

0:19:14.960,0:19:18.160
but

0:19:15.520,0:19:19.280
i think the whole point is what this uh

0:19:18.160,0:19:22.480
study suggests

0:19:19.280,0:19:24.640
is that statistically speaking

0:19:22.480,0:19:26.160
when you don’t have that constructive

0:19:24.640,0:19:27.840
hobby

0:19:26.160,0:19:30.240
and i think you know if we look at how

0:19:27.840,0:19:33.840
they label the hobbies here

0:19:30.240,0:19:36.559
with uh school clubs

0:19:33.840,0:19:38.080
sports and and reading writing and

0:19:36.559,0:19:40.960
playing music

0:19:38.080,0:19:42.720
if those are hobbies they’re probably

0:19:40.960,0:19:44.640
looking at those as constructive hobbies

0:19:42.720,0:19:46.320
in this case here

0:19:44.640,0:19:48.720
and and the study suggested those

0:19:46.320,0:19:49.760
constructive hobbies help to guide teens

0:19:48.720,0:19:52.320
along

0:19:49.760,0:19:54.799
what parents would think is the right

0:19:52.320,0:19:58.320
path i guess

0:19:54.799,0:20:00.720
so let’s talk productive downtime

0:19:58.320,0:20:02.080
so hobbies give teenagers a chance to

0:20:00.720,0:20:04.480
meet new people

0:20:02.080,0:20:05.600
discover passions develop skills outside

0:20:04.480,0:20:09.120
of school

0:20:05.600,0:20:12.159
and do something that all kids and

0:20:09.120,0:20:13.360
teens are part of kids should do to have

0:20:12.159,0:20:16.640
fun

0:20:13.360,0:20:18.559
do you agree with that statement um yeah

0:20:16.640,0:20:20.000
i definitely say that certain hobbies

0:20:18.559,0:20:22.559
would definitely give you the

0:20:20.000,0:20:23.360
chance to meet new people like take for

0:20:22.559,0:20:26.159
instance

0:20:23.360,0:20:27.440
the fact that i’m in band well now that

0:20:26.159,0:20:29.679
we’re kind of virtual

0:20:27.440,0:20:31.360
i’ve actually gotten to know a lot of

0:20:29.679,0:20:34.880
the kids who play

0:20:31.360,0:20:37.679
the same instrument as me and it’s like

0:20:34.880,0:20:40.400
one of the few interactions um that i

0:20:37.679,0:20:43.200
actually have during the week

0:20:40.400,0:20:44.480
um as well as discovering new passions

0:20:43.200,0:20:47.679
yeah

0:20:44.480,0:20:49.760
i didn’t i wasn’t always in

0:20:47.679,0:20:52.000
i don’t think i like originally started

0:20:49.760,0:20:54.240
out as a musician but when i started in

0:20:52.000,0:20:56.000
fourth grade when i got the chance

0:20:54.240,0:20:57.520
i found out i really did like playing

0:20:56.000,0:21:00.000
the trumpet yeah

0:20:57.520,0:21:00.960
um develop skills outside of school yeah

0:21:00.000,0:21:05.600
i’ve developed

0:21:00.960,0:21:05.600
my art skill more outside of school

0:21:05.760,0:21:08.799
and to have fun i have fun with my

0:21:07.840,0:21:10.080
hobbies so

0:21:08.799,0:21:12.080
yeah i definitely agree with that

0:21:10.080,0:21:13.600
statement okay

0:21:12.080,0:21:15.200
they say two of the most important

0:21:13.600,0:21:16.240
things that happened during the teen

0:21:15.200,0:21:18.440
years

0:21:16.240,0:21:20.240
are identity formation and

0:21:18.440,0:21:23.280
differentiation now they

0:21:20.240,0:21:25.919
go on to explain these what do they how

0:21:23.280,0:21:28.400
do they classify identity formation

0:21:25.919,0:21:29.120
so identity formation is exactly what it

0:21:28.400,0:21:31.280
sounds like

0:21:29.120,0:21:33.280
it’s the process of becoming an

0:21:31.280,0:21:34.320
individual with an entire set of

0:21:33.280,0:21:36.880
personal wants

0:21:34.320,0:21:38.400
needs skills and preferences and how’s

0:21:36.880,0:21:41.120
differentiation

0:21:38.400,0:21:42.559
different uh differentiation is part of

0:21:41.120,0:21:45.440
identity formation

0:21:42.559,0:21:46.960
but differentiation is special it’s the

0:21:45.440,0:21:49.600
formation of an identity

0:21:46.960,0:21:51.360
outside and a part of parents and from

0:21:49.600,0:21:53.440
parents and family

0:21:51.360,0:21:55.919
right and they talk about hobbies as a

0:21:53.440,0:21:57.440
great way for teens to form an identity

0:21:55.919,0:21:59.600
outside of their family

0:21:57.440,0:22:02.320
now we’ve got a pretty i would say

0:21:59.600,0:22:06.080
pretty tight family environment here

0:22:02.320,0:22:08.640
um a lot of that is just because we’re

0:22:06.080,0:22:10.080
very naturally you know tight as a

0:22:08.640,0:22:12.320
family

0:22:10.080,0:22:14.559
but obviously nowadays with the pandemic

0:22:12.320,0:22:16.640
and everything we don’t get out to

0:22:14.559,0:22:17.600
interact with others as much as as we

0:22:16.640,0:22:21.440
used to

0:22:17.600,0:22:22.240
yeah um but it’s important to have that

0:22:21.440,0:22:24.159
interaction

0:22:22.240,0:22:25.280
outside of the family too because if

0:22:24.159,0:22:27.520
you’re

0:22:25.280,0:22:29.200
just interacting with the family you

0:22:27.520,0:22:29.840
wind up being a little too sheltered

0:22:29.200,0:22:34.240
there

0:22:29.840,0:22:36.400
yeah they say hobbies take place

0:22:34.240,0:22:37.600
after school hours can be even better

0:22:36.400,0:22:39.600
for teens

0:22:37.600,0:22:41.360
they also give teenagers a chance to

0:22:39.600,0:22:44.720
forge their own pants outside the

0:22:41.360,0:22:46.080
watchful eye of parents and teachers

0:22:44.720,0:22:47.840
like for instance one of the hobbies

0:22:46.080,0:22:49.840
that i used to have was

0:22:47.840,0:22:52.159
you know my gaming group you know we

0:22:49.840,0:22:55.200
would i’d go out once a week to

0:22:52.159,0:22:58.000
a local gaming store and sam and i would

0:22:55.200,0:23:00.159
go do stuff like that and we had our

0:22:58.000,0:23:02.320
time and you and mommy had your time and

0:23:00.159,0:23:05.840
it sort of worked out and we each got

0:23:02.320,0:23:07.360
the a chance to recharge

0:23:05.840,0:23:09.760
you and mommy have some of the

0:23:07.360,0:23:11.840
activities that you guys do together

0:23:09.760,0:23:13.600
so it’s not completely divorcing from

0:23:11.840,0:23:15.440
the family but it’s moving off into

0:23:13.600,0:23:16.720
different segments there that’s a little

0:23:15.440,0:23:18.559
bit more

0:23:16.720,0:23:19.919
i guess in this case gender appropriate

0:23:18.559,0:23:21.120
with some of the things that you and

0:23:19.919,0:23:23.120
mommy do with

0:23:21.120,0:23:25.919
you know the pink tent and stuff like

0:23:23.120,0:23:29.919
that when you do it

0:23:25.919,0:23:30.720
um so they say that’s a new law of the

0:23:29.919,0:23:33.919
land both

0:23:30.720,0:23:36.799
common law dating back centuries

0:23:33.919,0:23:39.280
um referring to teachers how teachers

0:23:36.799,0:23:41.039
become an extension of the family

0:23:39.280,0:23:43.840
that you know it’s common law dating

0:23:41.039,0:23:47.200
back centuries and the u.s supreme court

0:23:43.840,0:23:50.559
uh held that school officials can act

0:23:47.200,0:23:51.840
in loco parentes or the in place of the

0:23:50.559,0:23:53.600
parents

0:23:51.840,0:23:55.200
so when you interact with your teachers

0:23:53.600,0:23:58.000
your teachers are kind of

0:23:55.200,0:23:59.120
parents by proxy there and what that

0:23:58.000,0:24:01.840
really means is that

0:23:59.120,0:24:02.240
they’re responsible for certain aspects

0:24:01.840,0:24:05.200
of

0:24:02.240,0:24:06.240
your development um they’re responsible

0:24:05.200,0:24:09.279
for your safety

0:24:06.240,0:24:10.320
your well-being um they’re responsible

0:24:09.279,0:24:12.640
for making sure that you have an

0:24:10.320,0:24:14.640
education so

0:24:12.640,0:24:15.679
hobbies that occur in school with

0:24:14.640,0:24:17.919
teachers

0:24:15.679,0:24:18.880
really aren’t that extension of the

0:24:17.919,0:24:20.240
family

0:24:18.880,0:24:22.320
you know outside of the family they’re

0:24:20.240,0:24:24.960
talking about yeah

0:24:22.320,0:24:25.600
but they talk about things like sports

0:24:24.960,0:24:27.600
and band

0:24:25.600,0:24:29.520
and how they’re different you know it’s

0:24:27.600,0:24:30.159
common knowledge figures like sports

0:24:29.520,0:24:32.320
coaches

0:24:30.159,0:24:34.480
and band directors while they’re

0:24:32.320,0:24:36.480
coaching or directing band are neither

0:24:34.480,0:24:39.679
teachers nor parents

0:24:36.480,0:24:42.640
so you tend to have a little bit

0:24:39.679,0:24:44.400
different relationship with that type of

0:24:42.640,0:24:47.120
interaction

0:24:44.400,0:24:47.520
my band director when i was in high

0:24:47.120,0:24:49.440
school

0:24:47.520,0:24:50.640
or my choir director when i was in high

0:24:49.440,0:24:54.159
school

0:24:50.640,0:24:55.360
was not a teacher um in the traditional

0:24:54.159,0:24:58.559
sense

0:24:55.360,0:25:01.919
he was very down-to-earth

0:24:58.559,0:25:05.679
very approachable did not

0:25:01.919,0:25:08.640
portray himself as an authority figure

0:25:05.679,0:25:09.679
and as a result we related to him much

0:25:08.640,0:25:11.760
more

0:25:09.679,0:25:13.200
and because we related to him more we

0:25:11.760,0:25:15.440
would confide in him

0:25:13.200,0:25:17.679
things that we wouldn’t say to teachers

0:25:15.440,0:25:20.159
under normal circumstances

0:25:17.679,0:25:22.080
so having that kind of relationship in

0:25:20.159,0:25:23.120
someone who’s older and more mature that

0:25:22.080,0:25:25.440
can provide

0:25:23.120,0:25:28.720
guidance especially in a controlled

0:25:25.440,0:25:31.039
environment is very helpful

0:25:28.720,0:25:32.480
they help teens learn to grow in new and

0:25:31.039,0:25:35.840
different ways

0:25:32.480,0:25:37.679
under a unique set of rules and norms

0:25:35.840,0:25:39.360
and while teaching them skills they

0:25:37.679,0:25:43.200
don’t learn at home

0:25:39.360,0:25:45.760
or in class in addition to facilitating

0:25:43.200,0:25:46.880
a basic psycholo the basic psychological

0:25:45.760,0:25:49.919
needs

0:25:46.880,0:25:51.279
hobbies benefit teens on many levels

0:25:49.919,0:25:54.559
which we’ll talk about in our next

0:25:51.279,0:25:55.350
segment but do you have or have you had

0:25:54.559,0:25:56.559
that kind of a

0:25:55.350,0:26:00.080
[Music]

0:25:56.559,0:26:03.600
interaction with an art teacher

0:26:00.080,0:26:06.799
or a band director or someone like that

0:26:03.600,0:26:08.640
where you feel comfortable

0:26:06.799,0:26:10.080
you know approaching them with things

0:26:08.640,0:26:13.840
that you wouldn’t talk to a regular

0:26:10.080,0:26:15.840
teacher about yeah actually

0:26:13.840,0:26:17.840
uh thinking about the years i’ve been

0:26:15.840,0:26:20.960
banned um

0:26:17.840,0:26:22.000
the band directors i knew um they

0:26:20.960,0:26:22.880
definitely seemed a lot more

0:26:22.000,0:26:27.440
approachable than

0:26:22.880,0:26:30.640
most of the teachers um it i think it

0:26:27.440,0:26:33.600
it felt as it felt as though they

0:26:30.640,0:26:35.200
kind of they definitely did it was kind

0:26:33.600,0:26:36.640
of similar to you they didn’t put too

0:26:35.200,0:26:38.559
much authority down

0:26:36.640,0:26:40.000
which meant which made them more

0:26:38.559,0:26:42.000
approachable

0:26:40.000,0:26:43.520
and yeah i would say that with my

0:26:42.000,0:26:46.960
current band director now

0:26:43.520,0:26:53.840
i’m able to approach him easily and

0:26:46.960,0:26:53.840
it isn’t and i’m not really like

0:26:55.679,0:27:00.320
well well and i get it and

0:26:58.799,0:27:01.679
and i think part of that is the fact

0:27:00.320,0:27:02.640
that what you’re doing what you’re

0:27:01.679,0:27:06.000
engaging in is

0:27:02.640,0:27:08.880
is hobby type activities

0:27:06.000,0:27:10.640
um and and you’re getting the benefit of

0:27:08.880,0:27:11.200
the hobbies of those activities and the

0:27:10.640,0:27:14.480
teachers

0:27:11.200,0:27:14.960
aren’t aren’t you know you’re graded on

0:27:14.480,0:27:18.320
your

0:27:14.960,0:27:20.240
on your efforts in their class but

0:27:18.320,0:27:22.640
you’re being graded on a hobby really

0:27:20.240,0:27:25.360
yeah so it’s a very different type

0:27:22.640,0:27:26.799
of authoritative dynamic when it comes

0:27:25.360,0:27:29.679
to something like that

0:27:26.799,0:27:31.520
yeah and it allows it to be probably a

0:27:29.679,0:27:34.720
little bit more relaxed

0:27:31.520,0:27:36.559
um not nearly as much pressure

0:27:34.720,0:27:37.840
and and that you kind of need that to

0:27:36.559,0:27:41.279
help facilitate

0:27:37.840,0:27:45.279
the skills involved in learning

0:27:41.279,0:27:48.000
um a talent related hobby like

0:27:45.279,0:27:49.520
band or the skills needed for sports or

0:27:48.000,0:27:52.480
something like that

0:27:49.520,0:27:54.240
um they’re more motivational than

0:27:52.480,0:27:56.240
authoritative

0:27:54.240,0:27:57.840
you know their job is to teach you how

0:27:56.240,0:28:01.279
to play the instrument

0:27:57.840,0:28:03.760
but they’re there to try to motivate you

0:28:01.279,0:28:04.399
because of the nature of the skill

0:28:03.760,0:28:06.799
itself

0:28:04.399,0:28:08.480
it’s not just a matter of inducing book

0:28:06.799,0:28:11.840
knowledging you

0:28:08.480,0:28:12.399
um and the same thing goes with sports

0:28:11.840,0:28:14.799
you know

0:28:12.399,0:28:15.440
anybody can swing a bat but to be able

0:28:14.799,0:28:17.679
to

0:28:15.440,0:28:18.559
have the discipline and the skill to

0:28:17.679,0:28:21.200
follow through

0:28:18.559,0:28:23.279
with everything else that happens when

0:28:21.200,0:28:25.039
you’re not stepping up to the plate

0:28:23.279,0:28:26.880
there’s a level of discipline that you

0:28:25.039,0:28:27.840
have to have self-discipline you have to

0:28:26.880,0:28:30.080
have

0:28:27.840,0:28:30.960
in order to be a skilled athlete that

0:28:30.080,0:28:34.080
you have to do

0:28:30.960,0:28:34.480
outside of you know the times when

0:28:34.080,0:28:37.840
you’re

0:28:34.480,0:28:38.399
playing the game so let’s take another

0:28:37.840,0:28:40.799

0:29:58.559,0:30:03.120
episode 99 uh we’re gonna talk a little

0:30:01.600,0:30:04.320
bit about some of the benefits of

0:30:03.120,0:30:06.799
hobbies

0:30:04.320,0:30:08.159
so we touched on the first one so far

0:30:06.799,0:30:11.279
and that was discovering

0:30:08.159,0:30:11.600
passions a teenager might not know they

0:30:11.279,0:30:14.720
love

0:30:11.600,0:30:16.880
art sports computer coding cooking

0:30:14.720,0:30:18.880
or other things until they give it a

0:30:16.880,0:30:20.799
shot

0:30:18.880,0:30:22.960
how did you discover some of the

0:30:20.799,0:30:24.799
passions that you have in your hobbies

0:30:22.960,0:30:26.640
like for instance artwork let’s talk

0:30:24.799,0:30:28.720
about that specifically

0:30:26.640,0:30:29.760
well i’m gonna specifically talk about

0:30:28.720,0:30:33.279
how i got into

0:30:29.760,0:30:34.159
digital artwork so you guys got me a

0:30:33.279,0:30:36.960
tablet

0:30:34.159,0:30:37.600
when i was in sixth grade and with that

0:30:36.960,0:30:41.360
tablet

0:30:37.600,0:30:43.919
you gave me a few digital art apps

0:30:41.360,0:30:45.440
um and when i first tried them out i

0:30:43.919,0:30:48.399
will be honest

0:30:45.440,0:30:49.279
um i was having fun but it didn’t seem

0:30:48.399,0:30:52.640
like it was

0:30:49.279,0:30:55.760
a fit for me but when

0:30:52.640,0:30:56.159
quarantine started um i decided to go

0:30:55.760,0:30:58.559
back

0:30:56.159,0:30:59.840
and when i started seeing other artists

0:30:58.559,0:31:03.039
do digital art

0:30:59.840,0:31:04.640
i decided to go back and give it a try i

0:31:03.039,0:31:08.880
ended up liking it so much

0:31:04.640,0:31:11.919
that we got um i got a

0:31:08.880,0:31:15.200
stand for it and i got a drawing glove

0:31:11.919,0:31:18.159
and a new pencil that i

0:31:15.200,0:31:19.039
um that i was able to draw with and i

0:31:18.159,0:31:21.519
have

0:31:19.039,0:31:23.120
and i definitely see my skill and i’ve

0:31:21.519,0:31:26.799
improved a lot and

0:31:23.120,0:31:28.080
i really enjoy it and i think i actually

0:31:26.799,0:31:31.200
enjoy it more than i

0:31:28.080,0:31:31.600
um enjoy actually drawing on paper yeah

0:31:31.200,0:31:33.760
and

0:31:31.600,0:31:34.799
you are very good in fact you just did a

0:31:33.760,0:31:38.159
uh

0:31:34.799,0:31:40.880
a project that i commissioned from you

0:31:38.159,0:31:42.799
uh for our dnd group that we’re going to

0:31:40.880,0:31:44.720
be doing a new adventure for so you did

0:31:42.799,0:31:46.880
a poster for me which i appreciate

0:31:44.720,0:31:49.360
no problem the next thing they talk

0:31:46.880,0:31:51.440
about is developing skills

0:31:49.360,0:31:53.919
teens can make great leaps forward when

0:31:51.440,0:31:57.200
they focus on something they choose

0:31:53.919,0:31:58.960
and spend time doing it on their terms

0:31:57.200,0:32:00.399
now that’s clearly something that you

0:31:58.960,0:32:01.919
learned

0:32:00.399,0:32:04.080
or something that occurred with your

0:32:01.919,0:32:07.039
artwork is there another

0:32:04.080,0:32:07.440
uh example that you can give us about

0:32:07.039,0:32:09.600
how

0:32:07.440,0:32:10.960
you developed your skills beyond what

0:32:09.600,0:32:14.000
you thought you had

0:32:10.960,0:32:17.279
probably banned um from

0:32:14.000,0:32:19.760
i remember like just last year

0:32:17.279,0:32:20.320
um they i remember one song we were

0:32:19.760,0:32:22.080
playing

0:32:20.320,0:32:23.679
and we actually are playing it again

0:32:22.080,0:32:25.279
which is called marches of the armed

0:32:23.679,0:32:28.640
forces

0:32:25.279,0:32:30.559
um and i realized that i remember that i

0:32:28.640,0:32:34.000
had trouble hitting the one

0:32:30.559,0:32:37.440
um high note the high c um

0:32:34.000,0:32:40.640
and that and um now

0:32:37.440,0:32:43.519
after a few more months um

0:32:40.640,0:32:44.159
i’m able to hit a high g at this point

0:32:43.519,0:32:47.360
so i

0:32:44.159,0:32:49.200
definitely improved on hitting higher

0:32:47.360,0:32:51.279
notes and i’ve definitely gotten better

0:32:49.200,0:32:53.120
with my trumpet especially

0:32:51.279,0:32:54.880
after everything being adjusted with my

0:32:53.120,0:32:57.360
mouth yeah and that was

0:32:54.880,0:32:58.000
i mean that was a challenge for you

0:32:57.360,0:33:00.559
because

0:32:58.000,0:33:01.760
and you’re still going through it with

0:33:00.559,0:33:03.039
you know different trips to the

0:33:01.760,0:33:05.440
orthodontist and

0:33:03.039,0:33:06.480
the different levels of discomfort that

0:33:05.440,0:33:08.159
you’re running into

0:33:06.480,0:33:11.440
and the changes with the braces and

0:33:08.159,0:33:12.799
everything so it’s almost like

0:33:11.440,0:33:14.320
i don’t know like every six months you

0:33:12.799,0:33:15.919
have to learn how to play the trumpet

0:33:14.320,0:33:19.200
all over again with the changes

0:33:15.919,0:33:21.360
yeah so that’s that’s actually

0:33:19.200,0:33:23.120
quite a testament to your ability to

0:33:21.360,0:33:25.760
adapt to it

0:33:23.120,0:33:27.760
so number three is meet new people now

0:33:25.760,0:33:29.440
granted under normal circumstances this

0:33:27.760,0:33:31.519
probably applies

0:33:29.440,0:33:33.279
they talk about playing sports learning

0:33:31.519,0:33:35.919
a musical instrument

0:33:33.279,0:33:36.720
or joining a club gets kids out there

0:33:35.919,0:33:38.720
meeting people

0:33:36.720,0:33:40.880
they wouldn’t ordinarily meet now

0:33:38.720,0:33:42.080
assuming we weren’t under quarantine do

0:33:40.880,0:33:43.519
you think that’s something that would

0:33:42.080,0:33:46.880
apply as well

0:33:43.519,0:33:47.600
i mean yeah if i actually joined clubs

0:33:46.880,0:33:50.720
when i

0:33:47.600,0:33:53.360
when i was under normal circumstances

0:33:50.720,0:33:54.240
i really only had band because i wanted

0:33:53.360,0:33:57.519
to try

0:33:54.240,0:33:59.600
and join a club but i kind of was late

0:33:57.519,0:34:02.480
and the ones i wanted to join and i

0:33:59.600,0:34:05.840
really had no idea how to join them

0:34:02.480,0:34:08.159
um so i’m but i have met

0:34:05.840,0:34:09.359
people uh like i said before i’ve met

0:34:08.159,0:34:12.800
people through band

0:34:09.359,0:34:14.800
and now in our lessons i kind of get

0:34:12.800,0:34:18.000
that extra interaction with them

0:34:14.800,0:34:19.200
and you know it’s kind of nice nice very

0:34:18.000,0:34:21.839
nice

0:34:19.200,0:34:22.720
so building self-esteem this is

0:34:21.839,0:34:26.079
something that

0:34:22.720,0:34:29.040
is a challenge for all teens

0:34:26.079,0:34:31.839
and i think a lot of people in general

0:34:29.040,0:34:33.599
unless you’re incredibly self-confident

0:34:31.839,0:34:35.760
they say when a teenager succeeds at

0:34:33.599,0:34:37.919
something related to their hobby

0:34:35.760,0:34:39.839
such as learning a new song scoring a

0:34:37.919,0:34:42.159
goal or writing a poem

0:34:39.839,0:34:43.599
it builds their confidence their sense

0:34:42.159,0:34:46.000
of self-worth

0:34:43.599,0:34:48.800
and increases their overall mental and

0:34:46.000,0:34:50.000
emotional well-being is that something

0:34:48.800,0:34:52.159
that you’ve had

0:34:50.000,0:34:53.200
an experience that you’ve had from your

0:34:52.159,0:34:55.679
hobbies

0:34:53.200,0:34:57.280
i definitely would say with both band

0:34:55.679,0:35:00.800
and arts

0:34:57.280,0:35:04.079
i’ve definitely improving over time

0:35:00.800,0:35:07.440
and finally being able to

0:35:04.079,0:35:11.359
accomplish a particular goal

0:35:07.440,0:35:12.720
is was very satisfying one in particular

0:35:11.359,0:35:16.000
was when i had to play

0:35:12.720,0:35:18.880
the high g in our scale i had first

0:35:16.000,0:35:19.280
had some trouble playing the high f and

0:35:18.880,0:35:21.200
then

0:35:19.280,0:35:22.400
i was able and then when i was able to

0:35:21.200,0:35:24.320
finally hit the high

0:35:22.400,0:35:25.920
g it was a big it was a big

0:35:24.320,0:35:27.680
accomplishment

0:35:25.920,0:35:29.520
and that kind of leads us into the next

0:35:27.680,0:35:33.119
point here is that

0:35:29.520,0:35:35.520
a sense of achievement this is

0:35:33.119,0:35:37.040
like self-esteem but it’s not the same

0:35:35.520,0:35:40.480
thing self-esteem is

0:35:37.040,0:35:43.280
general this is specific a teenager who

0:35:40.480,0:35:46.079
takes a liking to carpentry for instance

0:35:43.280,0:35:48.160
might build a table a chair a deck or

0:35:46.079,0:35:48.640
even a clubhouse and then step back and

0:35:48.160,0:35:51.680
say

0:35:48.640,0:35:53.520
wow i did that that’s a special feeling

0:35:51.680,0:35:54.960
everyone should experience especially

0:35:53.520,0:35:58.079
teens

0:35:54.960,0:36:00.640
what have you had from

0:35:58.079,0:36:02.160
your hobbies that has has given you that

0:36:00.640,0:36:03.040
sense of achievement that you can go

0:36:02.160,0:36:06.160
back and look at

0:36:03.040,0:36:09.520
after the fact and and enjoy

0:36:06.160,0:36:12.880
probably when i had finished your poster

0:36:09.520,0:36:15.119
um it had taken me um i had

0:36:12.880,0:36:16.480
stepped pretty far out of my comfort

0:36:15.119,0:36:19.040
zone with that

0:36:16.480,0:36:22.000
seeing as i was drawing a completely new

0:36:19.040,0:36:24.480
species in a completely different style

0:36:22.000,0:36:25.520
and it was definite and when i was

0:36:24.480,0:36:27.599
finally done

0:36:25.520,0:36:29.520
with the shading the background and the

0:36:27.599,0:36:31.200
coloring and i finally stepped back to

0:36:29.520,0:36:36.240
look at it all i’m like

0:36:31.200,0:36:38.880
wow i really impressed myself yeah

0:36:36.240,0:36:40.800
managing time participating in hobbies

0:36:38.880,0:36:41.920
teaches teens how to use their time

0:36:40.800,0:36:43.760
wisely

0:36:41.920,0:36:46.160
instead of spending all afternoon on the

0:36:43.760,0:36:47.440
couch they learn to allocate time toward

0:36:46.160,0:36:49.839
their hobbies

0:36:47.440,0:36:51.119
because they want to not because they

0:36:49.839,0:36:53.280
have to

0:36:51.119,0:36:55.520
they find out how to fit their hobby

0:36:53.280,0:36:57.359
time in with homework

0:36:55.520,0:36:59.440
family commitments and social time and

0:36:57.359,0:37:02.000
that’s not always easy

0:36:59.440,0:37:03.839
have you found that that your hobbies

0:37:02.000,0:37:05.280
have allowed you to manage your time

0:37:03.839,0:37:08.480
better

0:37:05.280,0:37:12.160
i would say so um

0:37:08.480,0:37:14.160
like i have somewhat of a time stamp on

0:37:12.160,0:37:16.560
when like

0:37:14.160,0:37:18.160
like i’ve kind of gotten a stamp in my

0:37:16.560,0:37:20.560
mind at what time

0:37:18.160,0:37:22.480
i’m done with schoolwork and then i go

0:37:20.560,0:37:25.040
and do my hobbies

0:37:22.480,0:37:27.280
um i have a certain point where i would

0:37:25.040,0:37:28.079
play sims a certain point where i’d go

0:37:27.280,0:37:31.280
work on

0:37:28.079,0:37:32.480
something creative in a certain point

0:37:31.280,0:37:35.599
where i’d go

0:37:32.480,0:37:38.480
and um watch videos

0:37:35.599,0:37:40.240
so yeah i definitely say that it kind of

0:37:38.480,0:37:43.359
helped me manage my time

0:37:40.240,0:37:46.480
so okay they say the teams help

0:37:43.359,0:37:48.640
find out who you are most adults know

0:37:46.480,0:37:49.599
developing an identity takes trial and

0:37:48.640,0:37:51.440
error

0:37:49.599,0:37:53.040
you try one thing you don’t like it so

0:37:51.440,0:37:55.359
you try another

0:37:53.040,0:37:57.440
the teenage years are the perfect time

0:37:55.359,0:37:59.599
to start this process

0:37:57.440,0:38:00.480
do hobbies help you do that do they help

0:37:59.599,0:38:03.680
you

0:38:00.480,0:38:06.800
define who you are as a person

0:38:03.680,0:38:07.839
or discover who you are as a person i’d

0:38:06.800,0:38:11.680
say so

0:38:07.839,0:38:13.200
um like i said um before with when i

0:38:11.680,0:38:16.800
finally learned how to do

0:38:13.200,0:38:17.520
digital art um once i actually got the

0:38:16.800,0:38:19.839
hang of it

0:38:17.520,0:38:21.200
and started perfecting my skill it

0:38:19.839,0:38:24.000
became

0:38:21.200,0:38:25.440
it became part of my identity um it

0:38:24.000,0:38:29.200
became one of my major

0:38:25.440,0:38:31.680
platforms for drawing and it started

0:38:29.200,0:38:32.720
making and it’s kind of strange to say

0:38:31.680,0:38:35.920
but it started

0:38:32.720,0:38:38.480
getting me into thinking more creatively

0:38:35.920,0:38:40.320
about characters i wanted to create how

0:38:38.480,0:38:41.040
i wanted to draw them and stuff like

0:38:40.320,0:38:45.040
that

0:38:41.040,0:38:46.240
nice very nice hobbies help you regulate

0:38:45.040,0:38:48.079
emotions

0:38:46.240,0:38:50.880
developing a sill takes time and

0:38:48.079,0:38:52.079
patience that means learning how to deal

0:38:50.880,0:38:55.520
with emotions like

0:38:52.079,0:38:56.079
anger and frustration time devoted to a

0:38:55.520,0:38:58.320
hobby

0:38:56.079,0:39:00.000
inevitably means managing the ups and

0:38:58.320,0:39:03.040
downs one encounters along the

0:39:00.000,0:39:06.240
way this skill translates directly

0:39:03.040,0:39:10.000
into almost every aspect of adult life

0:39:06.240,0:39:10.960
and i can say learning sports is a great

0:39:10.000,0:39:13.040
way

0:39:10.960,0:39:14.560
to go through this because there are

0:39:13.040,0:39:16.079
times that i went through

0:39:14.560,0:39:18.160
frustrations because i couldn’t

0:39:16.079,0:39:21.440
physically do something

0:39:18.160,0:39:24.720
until i could train my body to

0:39:21.440,0:39:26.800
you know spike a volleyball or

0:39:24.720,0:39:27.760
you know catch a football or whatever it

0:39:26.800,0:39:30.400
was

0:39:27.760,0:39:32.079
you go through that type of thing do you

0:39:30.400,0:39:35.680
find that

0:39:32.079,0:39:37.440
the hobbies that you enjoy now

0:39:35.680,0:39:39.280
help you go through those emotional

0:39:37.440,0:39:41.599
cycles and manage your emotions

0:39:39.280,0:39:44.079
i mean yeah back to playing the trumpet

0:39:41.599,0:39:46.480
like i said whenever i kind of messed up

0:39:44.079,0:39:47.920
or couldn’t hit the note i was

0:39:46.480,0:39:51.760
frustrated and i’d get

0:39:47.920,0:39:53.680
really upset and like i’d have to try

0:39:51.760,0:39:54.880
and calm myself down before i could

0:39:53.680,0:39:57.599
continue

0:39:54.880,0:39:59.760
but continuing to try and hit that note

0:39:57.599,0:40:02.480
got me to eventually hitting it

0:39:59.760,0:40:04.560
so yeah i definitely say that regulating

0:40:02.480,0:40:05.760
my emotions was something that happened

0:40:04.560,0:40:08.240
with my hobbies

0:40:05.760,0:40:09.680
and that experience itself feeds right

0:40:08.240,0:40:11.440
into the next benefit and that’s

0:40:09.680,0:40:13.359
handling adversity

0:40:11.440,0:40:15.040
while pursuing hobbies things don’t

0:40:13.359,0:40:18.560
always go perfectly

0:40:15.040,0:40:20.960
in sports for instance losing happens

0:40:18.560,0:40:22.400
teenagers who understand how to rise

0:40:20.960,0:40:24.319
above the bad

0:40:22.400,0:40:26.000
and look to where the good get a head

0:40:24.319,0:40:29.040
start on life

0:40:26.000,0:40:31.040
as adults know adversity happens the

0:40:29.040,0:40:31.280
sooner an individual learns to deal with

0:40:31.040,0:40:34.160
it

0:40:31.280,0:40:34.960
the better one of your hobbies have you

0:40:34.160,0:40:37.599
know

0:40:34.960,0:40:38.319
you just gave one experience with band

0:40:37.599,0:40:40.319
but

0:40:38.319,0:40:42.319
give me another experience where your

0:40:40.319,0:40:44.880
hobbies have helped you learn to

0:40:42.319,0:40:46.079
deal with adversity or come overcome

0:40:44.880,0:40:49.119
obstacles

0:40:46.079,0:40:51.119
um probably when i didn’t exactly have

0:40:49.119,0:40:53.680
any creative fuel like it kind of feeds

0:40:51.119,0:40:56.400
into when i was playing the sims

0:40:53.680,0:40:58.319
sometimes i don’t always think of a

0:40:56.400,0:40:59.680
building i want to create and i can’t

0:40:58.319,0:41:03.520
always think of a story

0:40:59.680,0:41:04.000
and when that happens i have to find a

0:41:03.520,0:41:07.359
way

0:41:04.000,0:41:09.200
to kind of get my creative my creativity

0:41:07.359,0:41:12.000
back on track by inspire

0:41:09.200,0:41:13.280
by trying to inspire myself and even if

0:41:12.000,0:41:15.359
i can i’m just like

0:41:13.280,0:41:16.640
okay just walk away and do some and do

0:41:15.359,0:41:18.000
something else

0:41:16.640,0:41:20.480
and because i don’t want to get

0:41:18.000,0:41:21.839
frustrated with it yeah and i i find the

0:41:20.480,0:41:23.440
same thing too you know it’s the same

0:41:21.839,0:41:26.400
philosophy i have is if i’m

0:41:23.440,0:41:27.839
staring at something for too long and i

0:41:26.400,0:41:29.680
can’t

0:41:27.839,0:41:31.920
overcome it if i can’t figure out a

0:41:29.680,0:41:34.160
problem or if i’m writing a story and

0:41:31.920,0:41:35.839
i i just get writer’s block and i can’t

0:41:34.160,0:41:37.839
get past it

0:41:35.839,0:41:39.119
i kind of just have to walk away from

0:41:37.839,0:41:40.800
that and and

0:41:39.119,0:41:42.480
you know you learn how to deal with

0:41:40.800,0:41:44.960
those things

0:41:42.480,0:41:48.560
the last thing they talk about here is

0:41:44.960,0:41:50.880
learning the value of hard work while

0:41:48.560,0:41:52.160
we don’t necessarily agree that all good

0:41:50.880,0:41:54.880
things in life

0:41:52.160,0:41:56.880
come only from hard work we do agree

0:41:54.880,0:41:58.400
that without hard work it’s tough to

0:41:56.880,0:42:02.079
accomplish most things

0:41:58.400,0:42:04.160
of significant value when a teen chooses

0:42:02.079,0:42:05.839
a hobby they’ll have to spend time

0:42:04.160,0:42:07.200
working at it in order to become

0:42:05.839,0:42:09.359
proficient

0:42:07.200,0:42:11.280
and if the hobby is a sport or a fine

0:42:09.359,0:42:14.160
art they’re lucky they have

0:42:11.280,0:42:16.400
they get to spend a lifetime practicing

0:42:14.160,0:42:19.760
their craft

0:42:16.400,0:42:22.240
in the teenage years this type of effort

0:42:19.760,0:42:24.560
lays the foundation for achievement

0:42:22.240,0:42:27.839
throughout adulthood

0:42:24.560,0:42:29.520
and i i agree with this 100 percent

0:42:27.839,0:42:32.560
because one of the things that i learned

0:42:29.520,0:42:36.319
through some of my hobbies early on

0:42:32.560,0:42:38.640
is if you don’t work hard at like

0:42:36.319,0:42:41.280
like my hobbies computers you know i

0:42:38.640,0:42:44.880
happen to work in the computer field

0:42:41.280,0:42:48.000
i’m very lucky in that i get to do

0:42:44.880,0:42:52.000
the kind of work that to me is a hobby

0:42:48.000,0:42:53.920
and a recreation but if i don’t stay up

0:42:52.000,0:42:56.800
on top of that technology is a great

0:42:53.920,0:43:00.319
example because it changes so quickly

0:42:56.800,0:43:02.800
and it updates and and old technology

0:43:00.319,0:43:05.680
becomes obsolete so quickly now

0:43:02.800,0:43:06.400
that it’s not something like reading

0:43:05.680,0:43:08.480
where you

0:43:06.400,0:43:09.839
learn it once and then you always have

0:43:08.480,0:43:11.680
that skill

0:43:09.839,0:43:13.680
it’s something that you need to stay on

0:43:11.680,0:43:14.960
top of and it’s a challenge staying on

0:43:13.680,0:43:17.920
top of it

0:43:14.960,0:43:19.760
and it’s that challenge of constantly

0:43:17.920,0:43:21.520
learning and learning new things

0:43:19.760,0:43:23.040
and figuring out what i need to learn

0:43:21.520,0:43:26.160
because there’s you know

0:43:23.040,0:43:28.240
not being in a

0:43:26.160,0:43:29.440
formal learning setting there’s no one

0:43:28.240,0:43:32.240
to set

0:43:29.440,0:43:33.119
an agenda or criteria for me i have to

0:43:32.240,0:43:36.000
figure out what it is

0:43:33.119,0:43:37.280
on my own and figuring that out is part

0:43:36.000,0:43:39.040
of the enjoyment

0:43:37.280,0:43:41.119
and going down whatever path i need to

0:43:39.040,0:43:42.240
go down is it security this week is it

0:43:41.119,0:43:45.280
networking this week

0:43:42.240,0:43:47.119
is it hardware whatever it is

0:43:45.280,0:43:50.000
i get to set that agenda myself but i

0:43:47.119,0:43:52.480
have to figure out what it is

0:43:50.000,0:43:54.720
has your have your hobbies taught you

0:43:52.480,0:43:56.400
the value of hard work that you can take

0:43:54.720,0:43:58.640
with you moving through life

0:43:56.400,0:43:59.520
i mean yeah with both my trumpet and

0:43:58.640,0:44:01.760
when i draw

0:43:59.520,0:44:04.560
i and even with sims i’ve learned the

0:44:01.760,0:44:08.000
value of hard work

0:44:04.560,0:44:08.880
my trumpet specifically i of course have

0:44:08.000,0:44:12.160
had to try

0:44:08.880,0:44:14.720
over and over to perfect that skill

0:44:12.160,0:44:16.720
and i’ve definitely gotten way better

0:44:14.720,0:44:20.160
than where i was

0:44:16.720,0:44:22.319
what four years ago and

0:44:20.160,0:44:24.400
with my art when i look back at some of

0:44:22.319,0:44:25.200
the first digital art drawings i’ve made

0:44:24.400,0:44:28.480
and when i

0:44:25.200,0:44:30.560
sometimes redo them um i realize how

0:44:28.480,0:44:33.040
much i’ve improved and

0:44:30.560,0:44:34.640
when i’m on a specific project like the

0:44:33.040,0:44:36.560
project you gave me

0:44:34.640,0:44:38.720
it took me a while because it was

0:44:36.560,0:44:41.520
something i wasn’t entirely used to

0:44:38.720,0:44:43.839
i had to try and figure out ways and

0:44:41.520,0:44:47.680
i’ve learned a lot of new

0:44:43.839,0:44:52.640
ways to help me like

0:44:47.680,0:44:52.640
finding up reference images and

0:44:52.800,0:44:59.119
ways on how to create

0:44:56.079,0:45:01.599
colors and get colors and

0:44:59.119,0:45:02.400
layering and everything like that so

0:45:01.599,0:45:04.800
i’ve definitely

0:45:02.400,0:45:06.880
learned through the hard work and i’ve

0:45:04.800,0:45:09.280
got and i’ve gotten better with

0:45:06.880,0:45:11.119
handling all the hard work yeah so you

0:45:09.280,0:45:13.040
know it sounds like

0:45:11.119,0:45:14.800
uh a lot you know we went through 10

0:45:13.040,0:45:16.640
benefits here from hobbies and it sounds

0:45:14.800,0:45:18.160
like a lot of these are things that

0:45:16.640,0:45:21.440
you’ve experienced yourself

0:45:18.160,0:45:22.960
and your hobbies so we’ve talked a good

0:45:21.440,0:45:24.160
deal about some of the hobbies that you

0:45:22.960,0:45:27.200
have

0:45:24.160,0:45:29.119
art being one of them what other hobbies

0:45:27.200,0:45:32.400
do you have that you enjoy

0:45:29.119,0:45:35.040
at this time well one of them would be

0:45:32.400,0:45:36.800
writing or creating stories because

0:45:35.040,0:45:39.440
most of the time i don’t entirely write

0:45:36.800,0:45:42.560
down all my stories because

0:45:39.440,0:45:44.880
i have i just have a lot to say

0:45:42.560,0:45:46.880
and a lot of that normally comes out in

0:45:44.880,0:45:49.599
myself monologues

0:45:46.880,0:45:51.040
but writing i like creating stories i

0:45:49.599,0:45:54.079
like creating characters

0:45:51.040,0:45:55.440
their stories and i like just coming up

0:45:54.079,0:45:58.839
with new stories

0:45:55.440,0:46:02.400
or coming up with okay this

0:45:58.839,0:46:05.680
um so this is what happened in a story

0:46:02.400,0:46:07.760
how did it happen stuff like that so you

0:46:05.680,0:46:08.800
also have a tendency of combining

0:46:07.760,0:46:11.119
hobbies too

0:46:08.800,0:46:13.680
so for instance you enjoy drawing and

0:46:11.119,0:46:15.599
artwork and you enjoy storytelling

0:46:13.680,0:46:17.680
and you’ve in the past combined those

0:46:15.599,0:46:20.560
two into doing comics

0:46:17.680,0:46:22.240
yeah so tell us a little bit about the

0:46:20.560,0:46:25.359
type of comics that you’ve done

0:46:22.240,0:46:26.480
and and where you think you’re gonna go

0:46:25.359,0:46:29.839
with something like

0:46:26.480,0:46:31.200
like comics well of course i’ve i first

0:46:29.839,0:46:34.640
started out mainly

0:46:31.200,0:46:39.280
um with drawing spongebob comics

0:46:34.640,0:46:42.800
um and i actually

0:46:39.280,0:46:43.680
and with that i’m kind of taking comics

0:46:42.800,0:46:47.119
into

0:46:43.680,0:46:49.599
a new level um with an app i have

0:46:47.119,0:46:51.680
called gosha club i’m able to create

0:46:49.599,0:46:55.119
characters i like

0:46:51.680,0:46:56.720
and i’m able to make have them talk and

0:46:55.119,0:46:58.640
play out stories

0:46:56.720,0:47:00.960
and the same thing goes with the sims i

0:46:58.640,0:47:02.079
create sims i can play out stories with

0:47:00.960,0:47:04.480
them

0:47:02.079,0:47:05.680
and with comics i’ve started i’ve

0:47:04.480,0:47:08.560
actually started to go

0:47:05.680,0:47:09.200
back with some of my old characters and

0:47:08.560,0:47:12.160
redraw

0:47:09.200,0:47:13.520
for my comics and redraw them in a new

0:47:12.160,0:47:15.119
style

0:47:13.520,0:47:16.960
change up their looks and give them a

0:47:15.119,0:47:18.800
bit more personality

0:47:16.960,0:47:20.720
because i come up with stories when i

0:47:18.800,0:47:22.240
make the characters like

0:47:20.720,0:47:23.920
what are they wearing what does that

0:47:22.240,0:47:25.839
have to do with their personality what

0:47:23.920,0:47:28.640
is their story that kind of thing

0:47:25.839,0:47:30.960
yeah well and you’ve even taken that to

0:47:28.640,0:47:33.760
a level above and beyond

0:47:30.960,0:47:34.960
static images on a page you’ve actually

0:47:33.760,0:47:36.640
started

0:47:34.960,0:47:38.160
making your own movies with these

0:47:36.640,0:47:40.240
characters as well

0:47:38.160,0:47:42.000
tell us a little bit about what you’re

0:47:40.240,0:47:45.280
doing with your movies

0:47:42.000,0:47:45.920
so i have a series that i’m planning on

0:47:45.280,0:47:48.559
making

0:47:45.920,0:47:50.480
called the 6x’s um i think i’ve

0:47:48.559,0:47:51.599
mentioned it on this channel a couple of

0:47:50.480,0:47:55.280
times

0:47:51.599,0:47:56.720
and um i’m basically taking images from

0:47:55.280,0:47:59.040
gosha club

0:47:56.720,0:48:01.760
and putting them in an editing software

0:47:59.040,0:48:05.359
where i’m able to make them as a movie

0:48:01.760,0:48:08.720
with transitions sound effects and

0:48:05.359,0:48:12.640
um just just making them

0:48:08.720,0:48:16.400
into a full-length movie somewhat

0:48:12.640,0:48:19.680
um and so far i’ve come up

0:48:16.400,0:48:20.640
i know how the story goes i know all the

0:48:19.680,0:48:24.000
characters

0:48:20.640,0:48:26.000
and i’m planning on making a series

0:48:24.000,0:48:29.200
basically with them

0:48:26.000,0:48:30.559
very cool so that’s that’s really taking

0:48:29.200,0:48:34.559
things

0:48:30.559,0:48:37.200
through multiple mediums

0:48:34.559,0:48:39.599
of hobbies and and ultimately making

0:48:37.200,0:48:41.520
movies at them which is kind of cool

0:48:39.599,0:48:43.359
so besides those things what other

0:48:41.520,0:48:48.000
hobbies do you have

0:48:43.359,0:48:50.800
well one of them is podcasting of course

0:48:48.000,0:48:52.079
i mean we’ve been doing this for how

0:48:50.800,0:48:54.400
many years now

0:48:52.079,0:48:55.440
too um just finished we’re into our

0:48:54.400,0:48:57.680
third year now yeah

0:48:55.440,0:48:59.119
in our third year we’ve been doing this

0:48:57.680,0:49:02.400
for a pretty long time

0:48:59.119,0:49:06.000
and i’ve um contribute

0:49:02.400,0:49:08.559
and i’ve tried to um help with

0:49:06.000,0:49:09.280
coming up with subjects and ideas for

0:49:08.559,0:49:12.400
the podca

0:49:09.280,0:49:14.960
for the future podcasts and

0:49:12.400,0:49:16.640
yeah podcasting has now become a hobby

0:49:14.960,0:49:18.400
and it’s somewhat a career now

0:49:16.640,0:49:20.400
yeah well and that’s the thing like

0:49:18.400,0:49:22.960
moving on from

0:49:20.400,0:49:24.160
episode 100 on i think you’re probably

0:49:22.960,0:49:27.200
going to take on a

0:49:24.160,0:49:30.000
larger role in contributing

0:49:27.200,0:49:30.960
to what we talk about and writing some

0:49:30.000,0:49:33.680
of the scripts

0:49:30.960,0:49:36.000
and and you’re gonna you’re gonna take

0:49:33.680,0:49:38.640
on a bigger role at this point moving

0:49:36.000,0:49:41.119
through to the next 100 episodes we’re

0:49:38.640,0:49:44.800
going to be moving into

0:49:41.119,0:49:46.640
so of of what we talked about here

0:49:44.800,0:49:47.839
these all seem like constructive hobbies

0:49:46.640,0:49:50.400
to me would you agree

0:49:47.839,0:49:51.359
um do you have any non-constructive

0:49:50.400,0:49:55.200
hobbies that you

0:49:51.359,0:49:56.160
enjoy that you just you use to veg with

0:49:55.200,0:49:58.319
just to relax

0:49:56.160,0:49:59.440
clear your mind not worry about anything

0:49:58.319,0:50:01.280
what do you have that’s a

0:49:59.440,0:50:03.200
non-constructive hobby

0:50:01.280,0:50:04.640
probably watching youtube videos and

0:50:03.200,0:50:07.119
playing games okay

0:50:04.640,0:50:08.640
tell us a little bit about that watching

0:50:07.119,0:50:10.400
youtube videos

0:50:08.640,0:50:12.880
i really just watched them to enjoy

0:50:10.400,0:50:13.680
myself there are some specific hobbies

0:50:12.880,0:50:16.000
that i do

0:50:13.680,0:50:17.680
there are some specific things that i do

0:50:16.000,0:50:19.599
sometimes i listen to music

0:50:17.680,0:50:20.800
sometimes i just watch videos that make

0:50:19.599,0:50:23.040
me happy

0:50:20.800,0:50:24.720
and or make me laugh and sometimes i

0:50:23.040,0:50:26.319
just use it as background noise when i’m

0:50:24.720,0:50:28.240
working on something else

0:50:26.319,0:50:29.440
okay and when you play games what do you

0:50:28.240,0:50:32.400
play uh

0:50:29.440,0:50:33.119
my main game of course is the sims which

0:50:32.400,0:50:34.960
i mean it

0:50:33.119,0:50:36.559
actually might be considered

0:50:34.960,0:50:39.200
constructive

0:50:36.559,0:50:40.640
literally when i construct houses and

0:50:39.200,0:50:44.240
sims

0:50:40.640,0:50:45.599
so um but yeah i use that as somewhat of

0:50:44.240,0:50:48.160
a guilty pleasure

0:50:45.599,0:50:49.359
um and yeah that can be constructive

0:50:48.160,0:50:52.240
sometimes

0:50:49.359,0:50:54.319
um other times i’ve played hal uh call

0:50:52.240,0:50:56.559
of duty with you and

0:50:54.319,0:50:59.359
um that mainly happens when i’ve had a

0:50:56.559,0:51:01.599
tough day and i need to de-stress and

0:50:59.359,0:51:02.559
you know shooting things help shooting

0:51:01.599,0:51:05.760
pixels helps

0:51:02.559,0:51:07.760
shooting pixels helps so you know

0:51:05.760,0:51:09.599
i look back at all these hobbies of

0:51:07.760,0:51:12.240
yours that we talked about and i really

0:51:09.599,0:51:14.640
don’t think that there’s a lot of

0:51:12.240,0:51:16.240
wasted time i think the time that you

0:51:14.640,0:51:20.520
spend you spend

0:51:16.240,0:51:23.520
hunting skills or you know

0:51:20.520,0:51:25.680
medicinally uh helping your mentality

0:51:23.520,0:51:28.559
and your ability to relax

0:51:25.680,0:51:30.160
there aren’t any aside from you know

0:51:28.559,0:51:31.839
shooting pixels i don’t really think

0:51:30.160,0:51:34.000
there are any hobbies that you have that

0:51:31.839,0:51:37.040
that really aren’t constructive

0:51:34.000,0:51:38.800
and i think i think a lot of teens

0:51:37.040,0:51:41.520
and more importantly i think a lot of

0:51:38.800,0:51:43.440
parents would see that in their teens

0:51:41.520,0:51:45.280
if they dug a little bit deeper from the

0:51:43.440,0:51:47.760
surface yes sitting in

0:51:45.280,0:51:49.520
you know looking over at your your kid

0:51:47.760,0:51:51.359
who’s got their face buried in their

0:51:49.520,0:51:54.160
phone watching videos all the time

0:51:51.359,0:51:54.480
kind of seems like it’s not constructive

0:51:54.160,0:51:56.640
but

0:51:54.480,0:51:58.000
you know sometimes you might want to ask

0:51:56.640,0:52:00.079
what they’re watching and

0:51:58.000,0:52:01.920
try watching it too and seeing what kind

0:52:00.079,0:52:04.319
of value they’re getting out of it other

0:52:01.920,0:52:07.359
than just entertainment

0:52:04.319,0:52:09.200
but i think the most important thing

0:52:07.359,0:52:11.680
probably to take away from this

0:52:09.200,0:52:15.119
discussion today is that

0:52:11.680,0:52:18.160
our hobbies all have different values

0:52:15.119,0:52:20.720
to us you know whether it’s a relaxation

0:52:18.160,0:52:22.800
aspect an educational aspect an

0:52:20.720,0:52:25.040
inspirational aspect

0:52:22.800,0:52:28.160
um i think it’s important to look at

0:52:25.040,0:52:30.400
hobbies with an open mind

0:52:28.160,0:52:31.839
and you realize that you you get more

0:52:30.400,0:52:33.839
out of the hobbies then you probably

0:52:31.839,0:52:35.280
realize you do

0:52:33.839,0:52:37.520
so we’re going to take a quick break and

0:52:35.280,0:52:40.190
come back and give you your closing

0:52:37.520,0:52:45.040
remarks and your shout outs alrighty

0:52:40.190,0:52:48.559
[Music]

0:52:45.040,0:52:51.839
go for your closing remarks alrighty so

0:52:48.559,0:52:53.119
to everyone out there parents teens

0:52:51.839,0:52:56.720
whoever you are

0:52:53.119,0:52:59.440
um just know that hobbies

0:52:56.720,0:53:00.559
a lot of hobbies are beneficial and

0:52:59.440,0:53:02.400
something that

0:53:00.559,0:53:03.920
could be considered unproductive to

0:53:02.400,0:53:07.040
someone could be

0:53:03.920,0:53:10.640
considered helpful or um

0:53:07.040,0:53:13.040
in many cases productive to someone else

0:53:10.640,0:53:14.240
so hobbies are subjective and it really

0:53:13.040,0:53:16.640
just depends on

0:53:14.240,0:53:18.400
what value you get from your hobbies

0:53:16.640,0:53:18.960
yeah i think you need to have an open

0:53:18.400,0:53:21.599
mind

0:53:18.960,0:53:23.520
and uh you know before you criticize

0:53:21.599,0:53:24.640
your teen’s hobby or think that it’s a

0:53:23.520,0:53:26.319
waste of time

0:53:24.640,0:53:28.160
get to understand it and realize the

0:53:26.319,0:53:30.559
value that they they take

0:53:28.160,0:53:32.160
out of it because i think if if you

0:53:30.559,0:53:33.839
understand better the value that they

0:53:32.160,0:53:35.200
take out of it you may appreciate the

0:53:33.839,0:53:38.079
hobby a little bit more

0:53:35.200,0:53:40.079
yep so that was all we had for today
