So you've chosen to talk about hobbies for your first subject - it's a very large subject so hopefully you can write something interesting for me to read. It's a homework activity and should be finished before next Monday's class.

Enjoy.

First of all, hobbi(es) is an activity pursued in spare time for pleasure or relaxation. In a life, there are numerous leisure activities which allow some blooming and the enjoyment. I think is very important to have this. Personally, I have, like most of people, some leisure activities which allow me to release myself and to have fun. I practice Beach-Volleyball and i love it so much !! When i play, my head is deconnected, i laught with my friends and im very concentrate on the match. I love also dancing. Especially the contemporary dance because she allows to free her body and her spirit in an artistic frame with numerous movements the fast middle but especially to exaggerate. The contemporary dance highlights so many expressions and beauty. I think is also important to class his friends like a hobbi. Come to watch his friends is a real personal and shared pleasure because with them, we can do anything stupid and funny…and that, is the most important in a group of friend or in a frendly relation.
Well, it does not a lot but it are the most importants for me. 

I think that begin by : my Hobbies are… is a basic thing, so I’m going to do something original. My Hobbies are : Football, badminton, volley-ball and draw. I like sport as a whole, but the drawing it’s different, I don’t like to draw everything and anything. I draw essentially disney characters like the beauty and the beast or mickey. If I do all these sports today, It’s thanks to my parents because when I was fourteen years old I got hurt at my leg and if they had not done the necessary to me, I can’t do sport today. Another hobby is to spend time with my family I love them. Like I have to do hundred words, I have to stop here.

I have a behavior rather dynamic so my hobbies are something which help to channel me. They are also linked to my desire to have an extremely open mind & my school life. Therefore, I enjoy listening music (all styles), singing, dancing, drawing, reading and philosophize because I would like to be able to speak about everything. Finally my main hobbies are sport and learn Chinese.
Why sport ? Simply because since I was a child, I was always fascinated by the human body in full physical effort. How someone can exceed there limits ? How we arrived to think about nothing and be in the present moment, when we are doing sport.
Then, learning Chinese. You have to know that when I was to the college, my first year was terrible for me because I couldn’t get me integrate into my class (they were to much focused on what you’re wearing , you know what I mean). Moreover, I saw that I wasn’t ready to go in a scientific way, leaving my hope to work in sport domain behind me. So I was interested in Chinese and it’s becomes to me rapidly, more than a ratio point for me, it’s becomes a hobbies, a passion. I think that, I like the Chinese language because this is exoticism, the culture, the way they have to write words, the history they have behind them and maybe my facility to learn easily this language help too.

To conclude, when I had my literary exam, I have to chose between doing a Chinese-English university or to go in a sport university. You know my choice ahah… I hope that we can make our hobbies, our work and hat I haven’t made any mistake because it’s was really hard choice.

For me hobbies are a possibility to take pleasure but everybody haven’t the same hobbies. For example my hobbies are football and hunting because when I do these activities, I am in “an other world” because I like that but many people hate hunting and football. When you have a hobby you live in according to it, for example I love football and all week-end I coach a younger team of football and I play all Saturday night. This is what I think about hobbies.

Hello Sir,

First, I’ve got several activities i appreciate very much, such as Judo, Watching Movies, or cooking.
However, they aren't hobbies in my mind, since they are passions i’m use to do, unlike playing guitar and mainly drawing.
Indeed, i need time and a specific condition, cause learn an artist's composition like create one himself ask research and especially patience.
That's why i consider them as hobbies, cause we need to be perfectly relaxed and focus on our work.
It's only a peace moment, somewhere to rediscover ourself and where all your imagination and your abilities are at work.

I’ve been drawing since i’ve seven years old, many working years have allowed me to create and extend my way of drawing.
When i hold a pencil, i’m use to see things differently and i wish always more, by the way, i hope create my own draw animation.
This is the same thing with my guitar, each songs i’m listening and playing give me many reasons to not follow movement but create myself, my own maners to do.

Thancks, Jason.

Hello everybody, my name is Marin and i've stopped drink alcohol since.... Oh wrong website!
So, my hobbies are numerous like all of us. The first to me is sports activity (it's logic i wont be here otherwise) and i practice them around 6 days a week. I do it solo, with friends and with my familly, depending to my moods.
My second hobbies is spending time with my friends. Probably the first thing i'm doing when i go back de La Rochelle.
The third is fashion, not for a long time, maybe 1 or 2 years, but it's a real discovery to me. You can really feel better wearing clothes that i like. And appearance is the first impression that is given, so it's better take care of it.
Good reading

Topic on Hobbies

Post by LucasWDM on Sat Oct 06, 2018 1:34 pm

Hi everyone,
So we have to talk about hobbies..looks like most of the people have google translate for hobby !(jokes apart) I do not like this word, it doesn't sound like something we do really have interest for. I rather use and have "passions" or may be activities. Hobbies, are something usual, but doesn't it feel better discovering new things as much as possible (if u know what i mean girls)
The only good thing about this word ; it reminds me a very short guy chasing a cool gold ring. (If u've unerstand the reference we now can be friends)

The hobbies is the activity that one does in one's free time. For me recreation and a way of decompressing to think about something else, not thinking about work. My favorite sports are badminton, athletics and mountain biking, but my favorite sport is football where I play FC Fontcouverte in regional division. I practice football for the competition but also for fun to play with my friends. My other hobbies are drawing, but not drawing comic characters but graffiti. My last passion is the hunt I practice with my family. It's not hunting shooting but hunting at court where I make many competitions at the departmental, regional and national levels.

I dosn't have a lot of hobbies because the last 3 years I spend my time at school and sport because I was in sport section.
So my free time was used to perfecttion my sport practices and do my homwork, thats why i lost some hobbies.
But when I can have spare time i like playing various videogames particularly those where I can face the others players because I like show that I'am the best.
One of my most big hobbys is the practicing of judo, per week I can paractise  enter 4 and 10 hours without tournament.
Somtimes during my leisure time at home (contryside) i like take my bike and ride around my home.

So because everybody is talking about sports here i'm going to talk about music because one of my favourite hobbies is playing drums.
I started playing drums at the age of eight years old (a long time ago). A now I should practise drums every weeks because I've join a Rock Band. We are practising together every two or three weeks with the intention of doing concerts in 2019. We are most of all playing famous rock music like Black Sabbath, Green Day,The Cranberies,etc...
The groupe is composed of one singer, one guitarist,one bass player and me as the drummer.

Top of the morning to y'a lads (Hello if you prefer)!My hobbies(I will call them "activities" for the rest of my post) are very diverse going from simply sleeping to flying a glider!  My main activities (I would say "passions" but Lucas already said that Rolling Eyes  ) are mostly sports like rowing, Muay Thaï, running and going to the gym. I have been a rower for over three years now and even though it is a very boring sport, I still enjoy going out there on the Charente! I have been boxing for close to two years now, I really enjoy sparring with people who are better than me to learn more. I run on my own time to prepare for races like  Spartan races and other obstacle races. Going to the gym is probably my most time-consuming activity because I go there up to 5 times per week so that I can eat what I want! Outside of sports, I fly gliders. I started flying when I was 14 and I've been flying solo since I was 15. I started doing aerobatic gliding at the age of 17 and even got to do an air-show in Saintes! It is by far my favorite activity because you get to disconnect yourself from the outside-world and relax in complete silence. afro

Hi sir,
For me, the definition of "hobbies" can be different between people. Some will tel you that is the activity you practice in club, and others will tel you that is something more simple to help you to pass the time. It can be the sport (in competition or not), but also a more simple thing like drawing or make music for example.
My own definition is a mix of these two. I think we can all "hobby" something that we decide to do during free time. From the moment we do something that is not imposed on us, we can call it an hobby. My main hobbies/activities are sport in general but especially run few kilometers when i can, also play football (i stopped football in competitions on this year, i did it since 2004), basketball etc with my friends. Moreover i play videos games, watch TV, listen music or other things like everyone.
All these little things are the ones that make me forget the pretty boring things of life for a moment.

Thanks for reading. Very Happy

Hi sir,

Just like my father and my grand-father, I inherited this passion for Artic expeditions. It allows to isolate yourself and break the daily life for several weeks. Indeed, we leave France with the bare-necessities that is a tent, some food (because we fish a lot), and some cleaners... This is unique because we are far from civilization for many weeks and we can admire the fauna and the landscapes peacefully. We observe wolves, eagles, bears, whales... but also full of glaicers and primary forests. To move, we use canoes which allow us to camp on islands that are less dangerous for animals.

My Hobbies

Post by Luc VOLPI on Sun Oct 07, 2018 10:13 pm

Hi everyone! Very Happy

To start, my biggest hobby is the motorcycle, I practice since I spend my license AM (50 cc) at 14 years, it's a real passion that offers me unequaled sensations, I love the speed (with some limit of course!Wink ) and the feeling of freedom that this activity provides, if you're angry, tired, annoyed, hop! Climb on your mount and go empty your head!
I can not wait to get the big cube (A2) license to sell my old bike to finally buy the bike of my dreams!
Besides, I intend to make my passion later a job by working in the police in a biker brigade.

If not I practice boxing, a sport that I discovered thanks to a childhood friend who gave me the taste of the fight, but contrary to what one can think, the boxing is a noble sport which praises the respect for his opponent.
I do a lot with my friends when I have the opportunity.

My mother gave me a taste for drawing when I was young, since I never stopped.

Thank you for reading! Bye! Smile Smile
