Katrina's Talk (updated Oct 8, 2008)

My name is Katrina. Today I will tell you a story about my hobbies.

If there is a student with no hobbies, then he would be very bored! But I am very lucky that I have so many hobbies, so I will never be bored! I have many hobbies. Today I would like to tell you about my hobbies: drawing, dancing, reading, and music.

Drawing helps me to feel relaxed. When I was a small child, I always drew things like tornadoes. Now, I love to draw girls or students, but I think boys are very difficult to draw. My favorite drawing I have done by myself is of a very tall girl with a cap that looks very small. I think the funniest part of the drawing is her little cap. When I have free time I love to draw these things.

Every Saturday I will have dance class in the afternoon at the Zhong Zheng Dance Club. Dancing doesn't make me nervous, it makes me joyful. I started dancing when I was three years old. I started because I think dancing is fun and relaxing. I know how to do ballet, ethnic dance, and hip hop dancing. I think hip hop is the funnest because it is easier than ballet and ethnic dance.

Reading is my favorite hobby. It makes me feel more comfortable and it can help me to write essays well. I like to read books like comic books, stories, and interesting books about science. I like comics the best. Some comics will talk about the first people, the kings and the queens, and inventors. I love to read after dinner.

Music is interesting to me. I can play classical music on the piano and short songs on the violin. I have been playing from the time I was six years old. I have passed off eleven piano books. I like to play “Santa Lucia” by Mozart. I have played the violin for two months. I think the violin is very difficult because I need to push the strings very fast. I like it because it sounds wonderful, really.

I think I have to practice all of my hobbies so I will be better than before. Because of my hobbies, I am not bored. They make a wonderful life for me. I believe that everybody has their own hobbies, so everybody should practice hard. Our hobbies make life very excellent.
