On weekdays I usually go to school, but on my days off I rest. I hate getting up early in the morning, and on my weekends I can afford to get up a bit later than usual, because I don't have to hurry anywhere. As a rule at our leisure time we go in for sports, read the books, go to the cinema, theatre, park, museum or exhibition. Sometimes we go to the zoo or circus and enjoy ourselves watching animals. We try to spend most of the time out-of-doors. Some people prefer to go to the country to see their relatives and friends. In winter we like to go to the forest to ski or to the skating-rink to skate. After having such a pleasant rest in the open air, you are happy to come home and have a rest sitting near the TV-set and watching an interesting TV programme. In summer and spring picnics are popular with schoolchildren and students. Children are fond of picnics chiefly because they have an excellent opportunity to admire the beauty of nature, to run and play games, to have a bite without observing table manners. But the most exciting event is making a fire. They are fond of collecting wood and sitting round the fire. And again, children like to return home after having a picnic. Now they think that "There is no place like home," as the saying goes.
As for me, my days off are normally like this. I get up at 9 o'clock, do my morning exercises, wash my face and hands and brush my teeth. After having breakfast I relax a little: listen to a lovely stereo music and try to forget about all my problems. Then I can visit my friends and have a chat with them about our school life. Sometimes my friends and I go to the museum or art exhibition. As a rule, my activities on weekends depend on my plans, but in any case I manage to do a lot of things and have a real rest. I always try to do my best to have a good time. But unfortunately time flies very quickly on weekends, and the next Monday morning comes, and I am looking forward to my next days off.
