Boring answer: it depends.

Under optimal conditions: I find something that really interest me, become obsessive about it to the point of it being diagnosed as a disorder and either it was a pretty good memorable, more or less one-off, period or it becomes a part of my life.

Latent interests, burst out and cools off: Tolkien, Gaming, learning stuff connected to specific needs, i.e. writing shell scripts and the like, read about veganism (or about thirty other -ism:s), miscellaneous.

Common behaviors meant to bring me joy and that I try to do even when I feel lethargic: reading, playing/writing/listen to music, "computer stuff", writing, watching lectures, talks, documentaries...
