    how should I use "hobby"?

    I know that we say "I want to take up a hobby", but can we say "I want to do a hobby." or "I want to choose a hobby." or "I want to find a hobby" or "I want to pick up a hobby." for the same purpose?
    Please tell me which of these sentences is the strongest.

    The one with 'take up' is best (I'm not sure what you mean by 'strongest').

    The one with 'find' works, but the rest don't.
