If so, what is the hobby for which you consistently set aside some time?
How does your hobby help your balance student life with personal life?
I like video games so I do set time aside for that. That's also how I socialize with a lot of my friends specially when socially distancing is necessary.
Currently hooked with some PC games. I wasn't able to play much on my old laptop cause it couldn't handle them but since I upgraded to the Lenovo Legion on December I've been hooked with Magic the gathering…

I consistently set aside time for "just messing around" with open source software like various linux distros and the sort since I like to play with things in order to understand them later on; I thus also tend to adapt some of the methods, tools, etc. for my own purposes later on since it is truly a fun - albeit challenging! - thing to design the tools you will use. This also naturally plays over into mathematics, dungeons and dragons, and more stuff I do.
Currently my favorite programs to play around with would have to be Lutris, PlayOnLinux, Virtualbox, and similar.
Virtualbox taking the cake since virtual machines are extremely fun to mess with - e.g. using them to have Kali, Windows 10, and Whonix inside, say, Ubuntu or Windows 10 or whatever else - for, say, using Kali for the pentesting tools, Windows for Office, etc., and Whonix for anonymity-requiring stuff.
That and if you want to, say, go to a sketchy website and not worth about viruses getting on your main machine (in my case curiosity being why, the sort) they'll be confined to the virtual machine [for the most part] instead if and when they do happen.
When it happens: it's as easy as deleting the machine and reinstalling whatever OS on a new one.
