1. What do you do in your spare time?
It varies, I mean, it depends on the amount of free time I have. A few weeks ago, I normally immersed myself in a light novel during lunch breaks or after dinner, but these days, I’m just too busy with my work that the only thing I crave is some sleep, so all my spare time would be devoted to taking a quick nap.
2. What do you do to relax?
These days, I’ve been suffering from severe stress and depression due to the excessive amount of workload I have, and the only time I can relax is during my 4 – 5 hours of sleep every night. So, it may sound a little bit weird, but the only thing I can do to relax is, sadly, sleep.
3. How do you usually spend your weekends?
During weekends, I always refuse all the party invitations from my friends. Instead, I would visit a café on my own and indulge myself with a nice cup of earl grey and some new book I’ve found on Amazon. That couldn’t be more perfect for a Friday afternoon.
4. What do you usually do after work or classes?
I work evening shifts, so on a daily basis, I stop at around 9 p.m. and leave work 15 – 30 minutes later. At that time, most shops have already closed and there’re not many recreational activities left to do if you don’t want to hang around bars, so I often go straight home to take a hot shower and have a late dinner. Once in a while, my friends take me to the movies after work, but I fall asleep half way through the film.
5. How much time do you have each week for doing these things?
Well, for a specific number of hours, I guess I’d have to say just a couple of hours per day probably.
6.Why do you like doing these activities?
I don’t. I mean… who would like to go back home right after work just to have a late, cold, and sometimes leftover dinner? That’s just what I have to do since I have to work until late in the evening. I’m not allowed to choose, that’s the problem.
Describe an interest or hobby that you particularly enjoy.
You should say:
what is it
how long have you been doing it
who you do it with
and explain why this is important to you.
Today I am going to talk about a hobby I particularly enjoy when I am at home in Karaj.
My hobby is running! I know I do not really look like a runner, and it is true I am not very fast, but this is still the activity that I like to do in my spare time.
I have not been running for very long. I started running just 18 months ago, as I decided I needed to get fit, and I thought it would be a cheap way to exercise. I did not expect to enjoy myself. Near to where I live, there is a park. It is very beautiful with trees and streams. Each Friday a large group of about 50 people meet at 9.00 a.m. in the morning and go for a 3 km run together. I was nervous when I first went but found the group was friendly and encouraging. Now I go every week, and I even have trained for some longer races 10 km and my longest was 20 k.m.!
I have made lots of friends through running. However, the best surprise was that when I went to my local area, I met someone I had not seen for over 30 years! We had been at school together but did not keep in touch. We had both moved to the new city of Fardis and did not realize we lived so close to each other. Now I run with this friend every week, and we go for breakfast each Friday after our run.
Running is important to me because it keeps me fit, has helped me make new friends, and it has shown me that I am not too old to try new things! I hope you all find activities that you enjoy doing in your spare time!
