A Hobby Essay

Today I am going to tell you about my hobbies. My favourite hobbies are playing basketball, playing volleyball, drawing and listening to music.

Firstly, I feel a great sense of enjoyment from playing basketball because basketball gives me lots of fun and happiness. Basketball not only releases a lot of the stress which I get from school and homework but it also helps me keep fit. I also chose basketball as one of my GCSE PE options. I got a good grade for it too which makes me feel proud of my efforts to do try and do well. I have a basketball idol called Michael Jordan. He inspired me with his fabulous skills when I look back over the years when I followed his career. I watched many of the matches in which he played. Not only did he have brilliant technical basketball skills but he also showed a great cooperative spirit which worked very well with his teammates, making a great and strong team which was often very difficult to be beaten by the opposition. I particularly loved his shooting skills in many of the matches I watched and he scored most of the time with the shots he took.

Now the second of my favourite hobbies is drawing…and I have also chosen Art as one of my ‘A’ level subjects. Drawing lets me feel at peace with myself and quite relaxed. I like to draw lots of different drawings and I spend most of my spare time drawing while also listening to music at the same time. I like to create my pictures in both pencil and colour. When I work in colour the number of different colours lets me feel that the pictures I draw are special…and actually at times quite humorous.

I do sometimes like to experiment with the re-use ….or recycling of…. many different materials. I have successfully used old shoe boxes, plastic bags and cups to create things which I can also use for myself. For example I have used three shoe boxes and covers to create my own storage system which is fixed on the wall. I have drawn many different patterns to make my home made storage stand out more and more distinctive. When I looked at the finished article I was very happy at what I had achieved and I really like what I created. These ‘creative’ storage solutions not only save money but also , I feel, make my room look more beautiful.

Thirdly, another one of my favourite hobbies is my second sport which I enjoy very much – it is Volleyball. I started to play volleyball when I was 12 years old. As I hope you know, volleyball is a team game and needs good cooperation and understanding between all members of the team to play well. I always stay after school to play volleyball and so help to build up a good understanding between all other members of our team. Volleyball creates close bonds and trust between players on the same team.

It can create friendships and a feeling of togetherness when we all are trying to win a game together. I am pleased and happy that I have found a group of good teammates. Although playing volleyball is hard, I still love to compete and meet the difficult challenges which the games present. I remember that I used to play with my friends in school on a Saturday. Then afterwards we would go out as a team for lunch together. Volleyball gave me, and still gives me, many good memories. It’s something I don’t want to lose and I will remember those memories forever.

Finally, music is also a big part of my life. I listen to many different types of music. For example I love jazz, classical, pop and even rock. Every time that I do my homework I will put my headphones on and listen to the music from my phone. I have more than 800 songs…which also lets me sing in the shower room….do you do that too?

My hopes at the moment are to be able to improve my basketball, my volleyball and my drawing skills……perhaps my singing skills too?!

Leisure — How to Use it

What is This Life is full of Care?

We are living in a world dominated by industry and machinery.  Man, today, is so busy that he gets practically no leisure at all.  He is a slave to the revolving wheels and seconds. He wants so utilize every second, every minute, in making money.  He is dead to the beautiful panorama of natural beauty around him.  The flowing rivulets, the singing birds or the dancing daffodils do not attract him.  It is a tragic state of affairs.  It was this type of life that made W.H. Davies cry out in agony:

 

                “What is this life, it full of care,

                We have no time to stand and stare.”

 

                Nobody can deny the importance of leisure in life.  Rest is as important as work.  Since we have very little leisure in life today, we must know how to make the best use of it.  One must have some useful hobby to pursue in one’s leisure hours.  Leisure can, in that case, become a source of real pleasure.

                Hobby is an interesting pastime.  It is a pursuit which we undertake in leisure for pleasure and for profit.  The aim of hobby is not to earn money thought it may bring money indirectly.  But different people amuse themselves with different hobbies.  For example, my hobby may be story-writing whereas for another person it may be a profession.

                There are many kinds of hobbies.  One of them is collecting stamps and coins.  Some people collect flowers and leaves. Some like gardening and clay-modelling.  Some are fond of indoor games like chests and cards.  Young men like outdoor games such as cricket, hockey or football.  Hobbies not only provide pleasure but also educate the mind.

                I have two hobbies.  My first hobby is gardening. There is a big compound outside my house.  On one side, I have made a small garden.  I have made many beds of flowers.  In the spring season, my garden is full of beautiful flowers. I have a separate plot for vegetables—carrots , potatoes, etc.  I dig the earth with a space.  IN the evening, I water the plants and remove the weeds.  I sit under the trees and read my books.  It is very pleasant to sit there.

                My second hobby is photography.  I have small camera.  I take snaps of nearby sights.  I develop my photographs at my own place.  For this purpose, I have made a small dark room.  I send my photos to different papers and magazines, so I get some money.  Photography is a very paying hobby.  I want to paint life as it is.  I hope to succeed in this object.  I plan to arrange an exhibition of my photographs in the surrounding villages and cities.

                Recreation is not the only aim of hobbies.  They give us knowledge which we do not get from textbooks.  Besides being a mental tonic, hobbies are an excellent way of spending one’s leisure.  It is said that an idle mind is a devil’s workshop.  One should not, therefore, remain idle.
