Hobbies and interests

Today I’m going to talk about my hobbies and interests.

And of course, I want to start with dancing. You know that I’m crazy about this activity. Many people know that I’ve been dancing since I was 3 and I’ve been doing it professionally for 14 years. The name of my ensemble was «Surprise» and the main kind of dancing was folk. Besides I had classical, jazz and hip-hop classes too.

I had many concerts, competitions in different countries. So, dancing led me to another hobby- travelling. I’ve been to 12 countries, in some of them two or three times. The special place in my heart belongs to the Czech Republic, because I have friends there and I really hope we will meet one day. I adore Czech cuisine and small cozy streets. I even have my favourite Czech rock group “Chinaski”.

Speaking about rock and music in general, I’m keen on listening to rock music and I do it every day on the way to university. This love was passed down to me from my dad, we even went to the rock concert together some years ago and this summer I hope I will go to the rock festival “Chernozem”, if the coronavirus doesn’t interfere. Besides, when I have free time and short nails I play the guitar and I find this relaxing for me. Unfortunately, recently, I do this very rarely and I don’t play as well as I used to.

I also enjoy cooking, because now when you can find any recipe on the Internet it’s quite easy. My family and I have already tasted about eight types of pasta, because it’s me favourite food.

But after such a delicious meal your body becomes plump. That’s why I always go to the gym three or four times a week. I can’t say that I do it in order to lose weight. It’s just a pleasure for me, especially when I go there with my mother and we have a little competition between us.

I’m ashamed to say that I don’t read much. I don’t find fiction interesting to me, but I’m crazy about poetry. When I was at school I constantly participated in reading contests and I really enjoyed it. I know a lot of poems by heart and always read them to people with pleasure.

It should be mentioned, that I’m interested in international relations but it’s more relevant to my learning activities.

Finally, I wanted to say an important thing. When I talk about my hobbies and interests, I always want to say “thank you” to my parents, because they always support me mentally and financially, they have never missed my concerts, they always listen to my guitar playing. And most importantly, I’ve never heard from them that I can’t do something. Maybe that’s why I can easily start doing something new and not be afraid that I won’t succeed.
