My hobbies and interests

My name’s Johnny. I am fifteen and I am a computer addicted person. I am fond of communication with other teens. That’s why I have a lot of friends in my and other countries. We send messages from one computer to another one using e-mail; we have on-line conversations. I am a member of the computing club and I spend much time there. Of course, it’s rather expensive, but my parents understand me and give me enough money to pay for my computer club. And I think that my hobby will be useful in my future profession. Besides, I spend my free time in the sport club. I go in for kung fu. Recently films about kung fu have become very popular in Russia. This fighting itself is a great art, the result of many years of hard work and self-discipline. The man who made kung fu films famous was Bruce Lee. He used fists, elbows, feet (never weapons) and moved as fast as lightning. I am rather good at kung fu now, but I never use my skills to hurt anybody, unless it is absolutely necessary. Now people know what Kung Fu is, and I think it may become a sport of the future, because it develops up your personality, will and nobility.
I'm extremely fond of reading. I often read for pleasure and sometimes for information. So I'm interested in different kinds of books. I like to read stories about heroes, great travelers, explorers, and courageous men. These books excite my imagination. I think I devote much time to reading.
As for me, I prefer Tolkien. My favourite book is “Lord of the ring”. It is very interesting and exciting. The main character of the book is Frodo. He is a real personality. He is clever and brave. I wish to be like him.

Different people like different kinds of music. You may prefer pop or rock music, country or folk music, classical music or jazz, but you certainly cannot think of a day without music.
As for me, I prefer modern music. I have iPod with records of lots of kinds of modern music. I try to watch all the programmes dealing with it on TV and to go to the concerts as often as possible. My favourite group is “Muse”. It’s a British group. I think they are very talented. Last year I and my father went to Finland, Helsinki to listen to their concert. I can play the guitar, but not very well. I’d like to be a guitarist in a group.
