Describe something you want to do but don’t have time for
You should say:
- What it is;
- Why you would like to do it;
- How easy or difficult it is to do it;
- And explain why you don’t have time for it.
When it comes to something that I don’t have enough time to do, I have to say that I’ve always wanted to go swimming. But I haven’t gotten a chance to be in a swimming pool for almost a year.
As for why I want to do it, well, it’s mainly because of my back pain. You know, I’m always tied up with work and study. So I usually live a sedentary lifestyle. Sometimes people like me have to sit in front of a desk for hours on end. As a result, I often deal with back pain. A doctor suggested that I go swimming because it can strengthen my back muscles and relieve my back pain. So I have been planning to do it, but I just keep putting it off over and over again.
Honestly, I’m a big fan of swimming, so I would be happy if I had the time to swim on a daily basis. But now, I feel like I barely have free time to do things I like. You know, there’s a swimming center that’s within walking distance of my university. But I’ve never visited there once…
Actually, I think it’s all because of my laziness. I mean, since I can’t manage my time in a productive way, I always have to procrastinate what I should do, even though I seem to be busy all the time. That’s really a shame.
