Taking Up a Hobby

As the saying goes, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." Studying is important, and so is having fun. A great way to have fun is to take up a hobby. Hobbies keep you from getting bored and give you a chance to learn new skills. Some hobbies may even lead to a lifetime career. Hobbies give people pleasure. Some people play sports: basketball, tennis, badminton, and so on. Some do indoor activities, like cooking, playing chess, and collecting stamps. All of the above are good hobbies. They help people relax and forget about their worries.

A few people turn their hobbies into successful businesses. Mayday, a popular band in Taiwan, is a good example. In high school, all of the members showed a great interest in music and started playing music together. At the time, they wished to give a rock concert someday. Now, their dreams have come true. The young boys with dreams are now big stars on the stage. Everyone should have at least one hobby. Your hobby may not become your future career, but it can surely make your life more interesting. Take up a good hobby and have fun!

開始培養一個嗜好

俗話說得好:「只會努力用功而不玩樂,再聰明的孩子也會變傻。」努力唸書固然重要,但玩樂也同樣重要。開始培養一個嗜好是一個很棒的玩樂方式。嗜好可以讓你免於無聊也可以給你一個機會培養新的技能。有些嗜好甚至可以成為終生職業。嗜好帶給人們快樂。有些人做運動:籃球、網球、羽毛球...等等。有些人做室內運動,例如烹飪、玩西洋棋和收集郵票。上述所提到的都屬於良好的嗜好。它們幫助人們放鬆及忘記他們的擔憂。

有些人將他們的嗜好轉變為成功的事業。五月天,一個台灣廣受歡迎的樂團,就是一個很好的例子。高中時,所有的成員對音樂有極大的興趣並且開始一起玩音樂。在這時候,他們許願有一天能舉辦一場搖滾演唱會。現在,他們的夢想成真。當初懷著夢想的年輕團員們,現在成為舞台上的巨星。每個人應該至少要有一個嗜好。或許你的嗜好不會成為你未來的職業,但一定可以為你的生活帶來樂趣。開始培養嗜好並享受生活吧!
