Young generation, spending free time, hobbies
There are so many types of hobbies one can choose for his or her own. Some hobbies are rather expensive, some are dangerous, some are very romantic, some are very time-consuming.
When I was younger I liked to collect stamps and flying tickets. Actually I started many times to collect things that could be collected (pens, battery, rings, tissues, labels, posters etc.) When I was five I started to play the piano and I stopped ten years later because I hadn’t time and I found out that I don’t have also talent. My mother was very angry but there isn’t no other way. I also made for 2 years gymnastic and for 3 years I swam. But not like racing. Now when I’m older I already now that sport isn’t good hobby for my so I just do some sport when I have free time like go in a swimming pool, fitness centre or ride on bicycle. One time per week I visit a lesson of calanetic because of my problem with my back. The hobbies that I like most is travelling and photographing. I visited about 30 lands. I like to cognize new culture, language, habits and the way that other people live. I like to make picture of this things and also I like to photographing my friends and scenery. These two hobbies are very expensive and very time consuming.
When I’m home and want to relaxing I watch TV or video. I also like to surfing on Internet because there is a lot of thing to now and a lot of important information. I like to see cultural programme, there is also elaborate issues for school-leaving examination. I’m going in cinema, theatre and also on exhibitions especially of photos. I visited regularly a concert of my favourite jazz band. These hobbies are very expensive so I can’t allowed it much times. When I met my friends we just sit in some cafés or restaurants and chatting and gossiping. A lot money I spend with telephoning especially now when I get a Christmas present as mobile phone. I write many text messages. Shopping is also very important for me but most things that I buy, buy I in abroad. Just Christmas presents buy I in Prague. In Prague I just window shopping.
I have any pets but when I was younger I have fishes, mice and hamsters. Now I don’t have time to look after pets. I read books only in tram while I travelling to school or out. Most time for reading I have on holidays but not during the school year. This summer holidays I made a lot of friends from abroad so I have them as pen-friends now – for example in USA, Italy and Holland. I can’t cooking but I want to learn it. When I was younger I embroidery, crochet and knit a lot. I can play board games like draughts, dice or dominoes. But not chess. From cards games I like to play canasta or jocker but not bridge, poker, whist or rummy. Sometimes I play billiards but I’m always very bad.
On average the most common hobbies in our country are these: Many families hove their cottages and people spend lots of time there (tending to their gardens – they grow fresh and healthy fruit and vegetable, nice flowers – cutting grass and repairing the old house). The other rather popular hobby is watching TV or a video. It is not so useful for your eyes and your mind. Many people here like to spend their leisure time reading books, magazines and newspapers. Some people prefer music to reading. They either play a musical instrument, sing to themselves or listen to their favourite music. Going out can be very expensive now. You can go to the cinema, to see a concert, to see a theatre performance or to have a chat with your friends in some nice café or restaurant. Art lovers often visit exhibitions in art galleries and museums. Lot of people like travelling.
Many students are members of a sport club or a hobby group. For example, animal lovers take care of their dogs, cats and horses. There are several sports clubs – athletics, basketball, volleyball, swimming, handball and judo. Nowadays lots of students go to fitness clubs to keep fit. In our school there are some hobby groups – e.g. Video and Music Club, Photographing Club. But more clear cup is our leisure time centre – billiard, fitness, library, arrow and ceramic workshop. We can also play the computer or surfing on Internet.
Many students would like to make use of their hobbies in their future jobs, e.g. working with a computer etc. but it is not so easy. If you have a vision for your future, there is little probability that it will happen exactly as you like. I know this from my and my friends’ experience.
Hobbies are very important for everybody. A man would be very poor without a hobby and would not be satisfied. Hobbies are like a cure if you are tired, sad, feeling small or in low spirits. It helps you in many ways. A hobby is you best friend. I really cannot imagine the world without hobbies.
