and explain how you feel about doing this activity.
[Instruction: You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]
Until recently, I would remain happy to sit at home and watch some TV after work. Now, while I have nothing against enjoying our time at home, this thing turned into a rather dull affair for me after a while. In other words, I needed to find some other kinds of activities. So, I went to a store about 6 months ago and bought myself a bicycle. Well, the reason for buying this bicycle was – yes, you have guessed it right – to tussle with it a little after work.
Of course, it was not the first time that I ever owned a bicycle and rode it. In fact, I used to own a very nice looking “two-wheeler” and ride it like a “pro” (“pro” as in “professional” here) when I was attending my university about 10 years ago. But, then, when I started a career, which required a different kind of lifestyle from my end, I had to give up the idea of riding a bicycle.
But, now, once again, I have gone back to my “old self,” a more adventurous one in that while enjoying this activity after my work, or I should say, mainly after my work, in the afternoon, since I also happen to ride it in the morning during the weekends, some times. But, no matter, when or at what time, I am doing this activity, I always try to do it in a nearby park, since they are comparatively less crowded or busy than those city roads or streets. And yes, I enjoy this activity alone, even though it would be nice to have other fellow riders accompany me sometimes.
But, riding alone or not, I am really enjoying this relatively new activity since it allows me to become and behave like the “young me” once again! I am also feeling way more “liberated” and positive about myself after starting this activity because it helps me take my mind away from the “toxic” work environment that I have to cope with sometimes.
