What's your favourite hobby?

Can you write us an article describing your favourite hobby?

Your article should consist of
-an interesting title
-an introduction which clearly presents the topic
- a main body of two or more paragraphs which develops the theme
- a conclusion which summarises the main points 
180-200 words


  1. I think that hobby is important thing in our life. At the moment we have a lot of hobbies which are very modern and popular. For example photography, theatre, reading, collecting marks or doing videos. It seems to me that hobby is the greatest thing in people’s life.
    Let’s start with my hobby. My hobby is cooking. I love to cook and experiment with some products. It’s very funny and exacting. In my opinion, a lot of people like cooking but a little people do it as a hobby, because you must have a talent. Another advantage of cooking is that you must not do everything that is written in cookery books. On the other hand, cooking is a very good hobby, because you use a lot of qualified products and there are no chemicals.
    It seems to me that having such a hobby at my age cooking is very good, as it will be an advantage in future for me, because I will cook qualified and healthy food for my husband and children. And nowadays I know what I will cook for my family.
    To sum up, I believe that everyone needs some hobby to relax and in order not to waste time on unimportant and unnecessary things.

    1. P.S. I forgot to write the title. Sorry :)

      Cooking is the best hobby!

    2. i very like cooking . one day i want be chef

  2. Music is a hobby too.

    Firstly, I would like to say how I understand what hobby is. On my opinion, a hobby is something that you enjoy doing, something that brings relief of the daily grind and allows you to relax. So why not call music as a hobby? Many people turn to music as their form of release. That is why I love it. Music is among the most popular of all hobbies. There are several different ways to enjoy music as your hobby. Even if you can't play a single note, music is powerful enough to clean any limitations that you may place on yourself.

    Some music fans find that playing an instrument is not so interesting, so they try to collect as many instruments as they could. Even if you don't play a particular instrument, having it in part of your collection is still outstanding. For example, how many people you know that have drums and never play it. Many of us know somebody like that. Drums could be used not only as a musical instrument, but also as a beautiful piece of décor

    When you discover an artist or musician that you satisfies, it's clear that you want to collect all of their works. A music collection is a great hobby to have. Not only listening to music and enjoying it are the main focuses, but the collection itself is something that will continue to grow and thrive throughout the years.

    All in all, I think Tilo Wolf, one of the greatest german musicians of all time, said it best, «If music can touch my soul, whether it is heavy or light - this is my music». I absolutely agree with him, because it doesn't matter what people think about your music, but it is important what thinks about it you. Furthermore, I can say that it's an universal hobby that brings out the best in all of us.

    P.S Can I say like that: Music is among the most popular of all hobbies

  3. Extreme sport
    To begin with, many people go in for extreme sports, because other kinds of sports are too boring for them. There are different types of extreme sports: rock climbing, diving, rafting, snowboarding, parachuting and others.

    Parachuting is an unusual ,exciting occupation and adventurous sport. Imagines this scene :When you are flying, you feel freedom like a bird. Many doctors think that it helps to save people from stress and depression and it is a good way to lose weight. But if you have not learnt how to land, you can break your legs.

    Diving is a very adventurous sport. You will see a beautiful world under the water. But besides beauty, there are a lot of dangers. For example, you can meet poisonous sea creatures or even sharks! You can be poisoned by oxygen. Also, you can lose consciousness.

    To my mind, each kind of sport deserves to be respected and extreme sports are not an exception. Firstly, doing such type of sport causes producing adrenaline in your blood, what is a source of exciting emotions and high blood pressure. There are more people who are doing extremes sports than you might think. All of them want to experience something more than their normal lives can offer. They want adventure .I believe there is an adventurer inside every one of us. It doesn’t matter how old or strong you are. The adventurer is there – it’s just hidden away somewhere. If you find that spirit, your life will take on new meaning. One advantage of doing extreme sports to satisfy your need for adventure is that you can completely forget about your everyday problems. You can’t be concerned about business phone calls or examination results when you’re jumping out of a plane.” In fact , most of them would agree with mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary’s reply when asked why he wanted to climb Everest: “Because it’s there.”

    As far as I am concerned nowadays our life is monotonous, and extreme sports give us an opportunity to make it more various. If I have the chance, I will certainly jump with the parachute. It will give me many positive emotions and I will never forget this amazing experience.


    Firstly, I want to say that a lot of people love dancing. Dance is passion. It gives the chance to express emotions.

    Secondly, dancing involves hand eye coordination, timing, rhythm, technique and most of all your personality and emotion. I am very dedicated to dancing and i practice as often as I can during my busy school schedule. Maybe one day I will become a professional dancer but I don’t know at the moment. Furthermore, people can dance in the clubs too. I think that dance can show how you can feel the music.

    Thirdly, I want to tell about dance style hip hop and I think that hip hop is really fun and interesting. You can start it anytime you want. You don’t have to be a good dancer when you start and you also don’t have to buy specially clothes. Just a t-shirt and a loose pants. In hip hop everyone has own style.

    In conclusion, I want to say that dance is great! Dance relaxes and raises mood. People dance and your life will be better! You will feel how your body changes.

    Dance is not only a sport. It also can be hobby which people love doing most.

  5. “Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.”

    This quote belongs to a very famous Spanish painter, Pablo Picasso. Who does not in our days have hobby? Art is something that I really like and painting is that I love doing the most. I absolutely agree with Picasso`s quote: in my opinion painting is that can help you express your things, feelings and just is a pleasant pastime.

    There is nothing simplier that to start painting if you want to do it. Firstly just take a list of paper and something what you are going to paint with (it could be pen, pencil, paints, crayons – anything). Secondly think of what you want to draw either just start painting – sometimes good ideas come later that the lines on drawing. In addition I can give you a piece of advice: try to be both patient and creative.

    However if you are bored of painting and feel that you cannot draw – stop it (because in this way it could be a waste of time and materials). Art in general is something that need inspiration. But if you enjoy painting you can go to Art school and to study painting skill there.

    To sum up it doesn’t matter what is your hobby – painting, listening to music, cooking or playing football – the most important point is that it gives you pleasure and rest for your soul.


  6. Without music, life would be a mistake

    Of all hobbies in the world, I like music the most. I think, music is the best hobby ever. You should look around and you see that music is everywhere.

    Every day after school I should relax. I have a lunchtime and, ofcourse, I listen to music. At this time I'd love listening chillout music, because I'm very exhausted after my lessons. As soon as I have a 15-20 min relaxing time, I feel better. A little bit more I enjoy beautiful sounds and I start doing my homework. Unfortunatelly, I can't work with misic, so that I should turn off it.

    When I end with my work, I listen to my favourite music - rock music. It is the best music EVER! I don't know what I do, if I woun't know about this style. Rock helps me filled with energy for all evening. Listening to rock music in the evenings is the cooliest thing, that I have. Some of my friends don't understand, how I - the girl- can listen to rock. I just answer them : "You can't imagine how it is wonderful- like in the skies"

    All in all, I wish people have their own hobby. Also, I will be very happy person if some people say: "Rock is the best hobby, that I know"

  7. P.S. sorry for my odd mistakes :D

  8. Sleeping like a student does

    I'm not going to say something "awesome100%ibrandnew" about this topic. Just think. Now we have a lot of hobbies which are very modern and popular, many things we do. Sport, paining, photography and other - are just stuff that's only wasting our time. But there is only one thing we all do every time.

    I would like to say how I understand what hobby is. In my opinion, hobby is something that you enjoy doing, something that brings strong feeling of relief and allows you to relax. Music you would say? Good try («IE»), but wrong.

    We sleep. I love to sleep and experiment with it. It’s very exciting. In my opinion, a lot of people prefer sleeping but a little people do it as hobby, because you must have a talent. Some people find that sleeping is not so interesting, so they try sleep less than they need Doctors say that human body needs 8-9 hours of sleep everyday to feel good. This is a medical part of this question.

    In real life high-school(or just pupils) and institute students – here is the list of true sleeping fans. They can professionally sleep on a desk. Sleep in bus while it is going to school. Sleep almost everywhere you can imagine.

    Sleep is not a waste of time or doing(synonym means thing) we need to do to stay alive. It also can be hobby which people love and prefer doing most.

    1. Here is new epic from me ^^. I've posted another "funny" one on 100wa site but, then realizied that it was bad =(

  9. What's your favourite hobby?

    Hobby is activity, which has been pleasing me.

    Always people like doing what they want. People are different, therefore they have a different interests. But I am confident that for every person hobby is activity, which borrow a lot of time, but time isn`t a pity for this.

    From all possible hobbies, most of all I like collecting. To begin with fact about collecting is an fascinating activity, because I collect euro coins from countries of the European Union. My collecting is connected with traveling, because for coins receiving, it`s necessary to go to one of the European countries. But also I can receive coins from shops in my country. For example, from there, where are a lot of tourists. Sometimes I see foreign coins from big hypermarkets „Rimi“ or „Prisma“.

    Furthermore, I am interested in collecting, because it`s development for myself. I know all the European Union`s countries and which coins they have. Already, I have75 from 136 euro coins, it`s more than a half.

    Now, if I meet person, who starts collecting euro coins, I would advise him to have a more patience and go to European country to have a rest. Also, to be more attentive and always remember which coins he has.

    To sum up, I say that I like my hobby because it`s amusing for me also it expands my outlook and develops my personal qualities.


  10. Book is a friend that makes you winged

    Have you ever escaped from everything because of problems and annoying reality due to doing something that you like? Well, I guess yes. We often name this activity hobby. More that any other ways to spend free time I have tried, I love reading the best.

    ‘Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book’ – author unknown. This quote absolutely express my idea about books and reading. A good book is the way to live another life, which is competently depicted by an author. You are never alone when you are reading a great book! If I fall in love with a wonderful work of literature, I will not be able to tear myself away from it. Actually, I will also cry after it’s ending.

    Unfortunately, the youth of today is more interested in clubs and illegal entertainments instead of spiritual development. Most of them think that reading is a waste of time and they just say ‘I do not love reading, it is too boring for me’. Well, I thought this way until I became 15 years old. I am convinced that everybody can find something suitable for themselves. For example, I began loving books since I read a classical work of literature named ‘Wuthering Heights’ by Emily Bronte.

    Besides the ethical pleasure of reading a good book, it also increases lexical reserve of each person. It is very important to know how to express your feelings and thoughts in a literary style.

    All in all, I would like to say that every person has his own passion. Different people enjoy different hobbies, but reading is still an important way to spend free time through gerenations. Try to read books with different sorts of tales and you will surely find yourself in a world of literature!

  11. "A sound mind in a sound body."

    These days a hobby is an activity, interest, enthusiasm,that is undertaken for pleasure or relaxation. For me, the best hobby is sport, if be more precise - handball. Why am i enjoying it?

    First of all, sport can relax you after a hard day. You can pour out your bad emotions and feelings. When I come back from school, i do my homework and after that, i always visit my training. It's the best reward for me after long-school day.

    Secondly, i think sport learns to choose the right priorities and develops the power of human will. After 5 years of my "sports career", i can say with confidence - everyone can achieve the goal and the desired result, if they will do all with a desire.

    Overall, everyone should have a hobby. Maybe to someone else like sport, as a hobby- it's a right choice. All people shouldn't stop on achieved and must follow the words, which Marva Collins told "Success doesn't come to you, you go to it."

  12. Travelling is a good thing in my life
    Firstly I'd like to say that life without a hobby is a very boring life. To my mind hobby makes living interesting. There are many hobbies like painting, gardening, travelling, collecting, photography, reading, crafts, knitting, cooking, pet care, dancing.

    My favorite hobby is travelling. Travelling is a fascinating way to discover and know the new things. I started to travel with a family from 8 years. My travel must be interesting because visiting a new place makes me know something new, a new natural environment, new people with which I can talk.

    The best countries where I was - Spain, Belgium, Germany, Denmark. In these countries there are a lot of places for visit and to learn a lot of new to itself. Whenever I travel round a new place, I take my camera and shot interesting pictures of building, monuments.

    All in all I love my hobby! I like to travel. I think travelling is useful and instructive. Well when the person has the hobby

  13. Music – more than a hobby
    Of course, hobby is one of the most important things in our lives. Hobby helps us to relax, to forget about our problems and missions, to look aside. In our times music is the most popular hobby, because there are a lot of different styles of it, all you have to choose that you like, and enjoy.

    I enjoy music, because it always helps me. I listen it every single day. If I am in good mood, I prefer to listen some energy rock music that makes me dance till the break of dawn. It always charges me power and good mood. If I am tired, I chose some calm, relaxing songs. Music can speak, it always says you something, you just have to feel it, understand it. Through music people can express feelings and emotions, it some sort of voice or speech. When you hear something that looks like you, that you understand it, you start to love it.
    In conclusion, I advice to find hobby you like to do, and do it for best, and may be in future your hobby turn to your main job, and it would be pleasure to do every day you that you love.

  14. Chance, imagination or art?

    Once Dorothea Lange said “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” She was absolutely correct. Since childhood I have known that I am an art person. Drawing, designing, dancing and nowadays silk painting... Yes, definitely I can’t imagine my life without art, especially photography.

    Even though photography is quite popular hobby in our time, I believe that not everyone can make really good pictures. But if you like it, why don’t you try and take photos for yourself to enjoy the process? Actually, I can’t say that I spend much time by doing photos and than put it in final form in Photoshop. In fact, that’s not my cup of tea. But there are some things that I’m fascinated at. For example, flicking through photo magazines or books and studying some important rules. After that, I can practice with my camera and pick up information about photo technique. I am really interested in camera settings and my purpose is to improve the quality of my skills.

    Photography has developed my imagination and aesthetic sense. Sometimes it’s very gratefully to look through albums and recall interesting moments from my life. I believe that photos can make people a little bit happier and I intend developing my skills in the future.

  17. Rap music is my drug

    I took an interest in rap music, when I was 11 years old. I couldn’t imagine when, that I will like it so much soon.

    I don’t remember acutely who recommended me to listen it, but I can exactly tell, what it was accidental. I started listen it, when I was playing a console game, which called GTA San Andreas. I personally took an interest not in the game, but in soundtrack of the game. Soundtrack consists of many famous songs. However, most of it consists from rap music. You could think, that I didn’t listen it before and you will be partly true.
    This kind of songs was a complete contrast to what I heard before. It made me read a big amount of information about this genre. Furthermore, I heard modern rap music earlier and considered, that rap music is a bullshit. However, I was wrong. I opened for itself a lot of worldwide famous and admired artists and groups. For example, 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G, Nas, Wu-tang clan, Naughty by nature, Ice Cube and others. I enjoy it because, rap makes me swaying, helps to relax and moreover increases skills of listening in english.

    In addition, nowdays I started to realise why many people disrespect and don’t listen rap. When many people think of hip hop, they think of bad and silly things. Hip hop is more than audience can firstly imagine, it's often misunderstood. Many often overlook and miss the messages within the music (exception is big part of modern hip-hop, which songs about luxury life, there isn’t any messages at all). I would recommended to all beginers, listen to the undegroungd hip-hop. Not that they could find on radio.

    To summarise, I want tell, that make “ Hip-Hop Hooray“ as Treach said and don’t make any hasty outputs. Listen to the hip-hop!


  18. I promote people to hurt each other
    Do you know this extreme sport game where people hurt each other by paint balls and feel pain from bleeding bruises? Of course,- it's PAINTBALL - the most craziest sport game in the world and I'm happy that i connected my lifestyle with this activity.
    My hobby is maintenance and repair of broken or defective markers (paintball guns). I think that I really help people to enjoy when they hurt each other on the battlefield. It sounds strange, but I personally know what I mean, if you don't believe me, please try it personally, too. Some time players appeal with request: "Could you configure my marker in such manner that opponents will cry because of pain?" And I adjust the marker's velocity under ~92m/per sec and firing rate: 15 balls/per sec. And after that I feel, that one more team will reach a victory, because they will have a soldier with the "death weapon". Sometimes, it necessary to assort in tens of parts to detect and repair a defect. That is the most I like in my hobby.
    Eventually, I'm happy that I have the greatest hobby where I gain my technician skills, receive pleasure, support healthy sports condition and certainly earn money.

  19. Music needs musicians.

    More than any other thing I had ever tried I enjoy choir the most. For my live it tooks quiet long period of childhood and juvenility. At fist three-two years there were a lot new participants, who came. There is one thing you need to bring along is your desire.
    I am 17 years old now. My hobby had a big influence on me since I have started. I attached an art in solid connection. It takes from me 2 of 3 parts of mine free time. I feel that it develops my soul, actually I can travelling around world by learning more about cultures.
    If you have young brothers or sisters, it will suit them very well. To confirning this,the small kids have more desire to take part in art and it allow them to carry out some knowledges about music art. This way they can teach and play at the same time. It seems to me that as young as kids are it is simplier to make them believ in music interest. You can not deny, that your's children will need a patience.
    Overall, singing brings me only positive emotions. Some people could say that choir is old-fashioned hobby. Do not believe them. Just try to explore your own world of music.

  20. I am crazy about extreme drive.

    The first time when father gave me to try to drive was four years ago. I was twelve and it was breathtaking ,but a bit scary. It was in the village near Tallinn.
    Since my first time, I am crazy about driving, cars, engines and other supplies. It amazing when you are driving on a high speed at night with loud music and bright lights. Also I know how to repair many things in car or how to add some things to car.I love watching some TV programs about cars and new car supplies.
    In addition I also love off road driving. Its very funny when you driving down the mountain or across the river. My favorite fun is drifting at the snow covered parking sharply turning and braking.
    In conclusion I think that my hobby is the best and I wish that anyone will try it.

    Best regards

  21. My favourite hobby is cooking. I started my hobby when I was 6 years old. I share my hobby with my mother. She taught me how to cook my first dish. To do this hobby, most of the time I learn from my mom. Sometimes I get them from the internet. I practice cooking new dishes every weekend. I also join a cooking club at school. I find nothing difficult because I like it very much. It's great when I can see other people enjoy my food. In the future I think I will continue my hobby.

  23. For me,hobby is actually an activity but it pleases me so much
    People always do what they want,therefore,their interests are different.
    In my case,i enjoy reading book,watching Tv,playing football and working with computer.All of these activity is almost come from my spare time or whenever i feel bored.they all help me a lot,I like reading book the best,in my opinion,book is a friend that make you winged.Also,it expands my outlook and brings my mindset up.
    Like other men,football is an irreplaceable part of my life,it's not by mistake that people call "the King sport".Without it,i can't imagine how our world will look like.
    In this social,the computer now is popular,it's useful,it help us so much,that's reason why it shows up everywhere.So,a necessary skill that our social requires is working with computer.Lucky for me,i'm passionate about it,i find no difficult to learn and use it but on the other hand,i feel motivate.To sum up,my hobbies are a motivation source that helps me relax and develops my personal qualities.

  24. Today I am going to talk about a hobby I particularly enjoy when I am at home in the UK. I will tell you what the hobby is; how long I have been doing it; who I do it with and why it is important to me.

    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 Saturday a large group of about 500 people meet at 9.00 a.m. in the morning, and go for a 5 km run together. This event is called Parkrun, and it happens in over 300 different places in the UK each week. 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 Parkrun, 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 Sheffield and did not realise we lived so close to each other. Now I run with this friend every week, and we go for breakfast each Saturday 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!
