To begin with, a hobby is an occupation which is not a business done for money. In English hobby is something done during one’s leisure time for rest and pleasure. It goes without saying, that all people are different - that’s why hobbies are so different. The English say, “so many men, so many minds” and “tastes differ”. These proverbs mean that every man has his or her own likes and dislikes, so, he or she gets pleasure from doing different things.
I believe, all hobbies can be entertaining and useful if you do it with wish and pleasure. Otherwise it is just a waste of time.
Well, I have quite an unusual hobby. I like listening to rap music and compose it myself. I am sure that if you want to be successful in composing , you need to tell the truth in your songs. Of course, you need some talent too. On the one hand, you need to have a great desire to express your feelings and emotions, and on the other hand it is necessary to see that people really understand you. I compose Russian and English songs a little. I really enjoy it and what`s more my friends think that my songs are cool. As you know, I took the first place in the school contest “star factory”. I tried to do my best and did it. Moreover, I sent my songs to some internet rap battles and it was also successful. I think that in future I will be the most popular rap star in Penza. Hope one day you`ll see me on your TV screens.
As I have already mentioned above, your hobby should be useful, as well as pleasant. Well, my hobby helps me to improve my English. My teacher says that now I do well in listening tests. My parents are really glad to hear that. Frankly speaking, I still have problems with phrasal verbs. But I promise, I`ll get over it. Believe me. A good knowledge of English, there`s no doubt, will help me in my future life.
So, summing it up, I think that a person’s hobby characterizes the hobbyist. Paraphrasing the famous saying, we can say “Tell me what your hobby is, and I’ll tell you who you are”.
Thanks a lot for your attention.
