According to the world-wide encyclopedia Wikipedia, hobby is a regular activity that is done for enjoyment, typically during one’s leisure time. Hobbies can include collecting themed items and objects, engaging in creative and artistic pursuits, playing sports, or pursuing other amusements. A list of hobbies is lengthy and always changing as interests and fashions change. By continually participating in a particular hobby, one can acquire substantial skill and knowledge in that area. Engagement in hobbies has increased since the late nineteenth century as workers have more leisure time and advancing production and technology have provided more support for leisure activities. As some hobbies have become less popular, like stamp collecting, others have been created following technological advances, like video games.
МАКСИМАЛЬНИЙ РЕПОСТ !!! SOS!!!! Everybody, anybody in the world! Please, help us!!! I’m addressing all the people of the good will! WE need your help and support!!! I’m an English teacher from the Ukraine. I’m a mother of three sons. I have a loving husband and I don’t want my family to die. I hope you DON’T know the truth. Because if you DO we lose our only hope. Russia is starting war in our country, and as far as we are patriots and we love our native land, we all are ready to fight till the end. We’ll fight till the last Ukrainian is alive. Russians for us are occupiers and they’ll become our enemies automatically since the first drop of Ukrainian blood. We are different here in the Ukraine, and as any country we have problems. Since our people were killed by our ex-president and his band we started to build a new free state, we received our new hope. But now a very powerful enemy is in front of our door, our future is in danger. Nobody hurt our Russian speaking people in Crimea, nobody prevents them speak Russian. Moreover, almost everybody here knows Russian and we answer our people in the language a person feels comfortable to use. We don’t need protection or help communicating with each other. Russia Lies!!! HELP US!!! GOD BLESS US AND OUR FRIENDS!!!
