57 # Cue Card (Leisure Time)

Describe what you usually do in your leisure time

You should say:

  • What you do
  • Who you do it with
  • Where you do it

and explain why you like to spend your free time this way.


Leisure times is a topic some could write endlessly about, while others would be positively clueless if faced with the said topic. I fall somewhere in between. When I think of leisure time, I tend to think of all the things that I would want to do if I had the time. There are a number of hobbies and activities that I would love to partake in, and a number of skills that I would very much like to build upon. A jack of all trades and master of none does not seem like a very appealing title if one never really develops a near-perfect talent for any of their traits. I often read novels that inspire and fascinate me endlessly, gravitating more towards fantasy, fiction and science. I never expand my reading choice though, and I don't get to read nearly as much as I would like to. Reading has helped me expand my vocabulary and has served as a good guide for the purpose of writing my own material- which also a hobby of mine that I indulge in my spare time. Painting is another activity that I would love to build on- also serving as a form of expression and an indulgence of passion on any given theme or topic that I feel the desire to portray visually. Spending time with my cats forms a great part of any leisure time I have- I seize any opportunity to sit with them and simply observe either their turmoil or content. I suppose my hobbies or fancies give the stereotypical impression of a calm and indoorsy person- which is partly true, if simply for the fact that I lack the freedom to explore the outdoors- which I would very much like to do. Consequently, a majority of my 'leisure' activities take part in the house. We do what we can.
