I usually meet my friends down at the multiplex on a Saturday and we decide what to watch. There’s always something new out that we want to see. Luckily, we have the same taste and don’t spend too long deciding. I enjoy talking about it afterwards – the special effects, the acting and so on. It’s my favourite pastime!
I’m crazy about all new gadgets that come out. I spend most of my free time shopping or surfing the Net to check out the prices. The trouble is, nothing stays new for very long and you have to upgrade all the time. My mum says I spend too much on things I don’t need. I can’t help it – it’s my passion.
I have always been a very active person, always trying new sports and spending my time keeping fit. I enjoy sport not only because it is healthy but also because it is a good way to meet people. I’m really into mountain biking at the moment and so I spend most weekends on trips. We sleep out in tents – it’s cool!
I spend a lot of my time shopping. I like to shop on my own or with my friends and most of my money is spent on clothes. But I am very careful with what I buy. I always spend time window shopping first and make sure I am getting a good price. It’s brilliant when you find a really nice top, and everyone thinks you paid a fortune for it, when in fact it cost you next to nothing.
You might think it strange that I spend so much time at the dog training centre. Most people my age are more interested in clubbing or hanging out at the mall. But it’s great to work with animals. My dog, Roy, has become so obedient now and I have helped my neighbor’s dog as well. It started out as a hobby, but who knows? I might decide to do it as a career.
Running errands for people is what I enjoy doing most. I usually help my grandma on Saturday with her shopping and sometimes do some gardening too. There’s always something that you can do to help people. I never take money for the work I do. I do it because I want to help.
Seeing bands on TV or listening recordings just isn’t the same. You really need to hear it live. I love to go and listen to my favourite bands and often travel long distances to see them. my favourite has got to be the Glastonbury Festival. There you can hear the best music around.

If you are the brave, adventurous kind, you can try skydiving or white-water rafting. Many people are crazy about sports like these (1). Today we live in the ‘extreme’ sport world. We seek adventure instead of (2).
If you are a quieter type, you may enjoy gardening or fishing. These activities are more relaxing (3). Seeds sewn in the spring result in beautiful flowers that can brighten up your mood; fishing with friends can strengthen the relationship you have, or may just be a relaxing day out with tasty supper at the end!
The imaginative can take up art classes or learn sculpture. In today’s fast-paced world we all appreciate the opportunity to express ourselves and take it easy (4). Solitary activities like knitting or stamp collecting, once considered to be old-fashioned, are becoming popular again.
Traditional team sports like football or basketball are great for developing team spirit and a sense of national pride. However, shy, reserved types prefer to watch them from the comfort of their couches rather than practise the sport itself. It is a pity, (5).
Today’s pastimes are often linked to technology and may encourage us to be lazy. Surfing the Net or chatting online is a popular pastime for many but more sociable types prefer to go to the cinema or to go to an exhibition (6).
