exclusive hobbies (golf, riding, scuba diving, etc.)
hobby and/or professionalism?
In this running world not everyone has the time they would need to chill out /lehiggad/, but we still have our
interests in sports, art and other relaxing opportunities. I would say that almost everybody has a hobby that he or
she really likes to do. For some, this hobby is their work, for others, their hobby begins after work time, or at the
A lot of the hobbies are based on old traditions and their practice, like painting, martial arts /harcművészetek/
and singing. For me, I have a lot of hobbies, but mostly based on old, traditional ones, such as drawing, painting
and writing. Writing is not just a hobby for me. It is lifestyle. I write short stories, novels and poems. ” When I
start to write in 2010, I was also writing Twilight fanfictions. Fanfiction is when someone takes either /egyik/ the
story or characters (or both) of a certain /bizonyos/ piece of work, whether /akár/ it be a novel, tv show, movie,
etc. /et cetera/, and create their own story based on /alapul vmin/ it. I publish my writings on my website and a
couple times a year in anthologies. Unfortunately, in Hungary it is almost impossible to live off writing.
Also, there are exclusive hobbies, such as golf, horse riding, scuba diving and others, which are not practiced by
every second or third person, since they need very special equipment /képesség/ and personality /személyiség/,
I rarely ride a horse. I adore it, but I unfortunately I can’t do it regularly. Horses can be a real passion
/szenvedély/ to us, since these animals look at us as their partner, not as their boss, like dogs, and not as their
servant /szolga/, as cats. They are not pets, but partners. I don’t know who can’t imagine to ride freely in a grassy
area /füves terület/, full of beauty, trees, song of the birds, scent /illat/ of the freshness. It really is a pleasure
/öröm/ for the riders, and for the horses, too, as they like to be free and simply run out of the grey everydays.
At one time I tried scuba diving. It was amazing, dive in the water and see the beautiful underwater life. It can be
a breathtaking /lélegzetellátító/ experience /tapasztalat/, while you swim with colorful and interesting fish, see
the outside world from under, you don’t even feel your own weight, just the easiness of your body. Like you
would be flying.
For a lot of people who are really into their hobbies, which is their true and only passion, they might /lehet/
choose it as their profession. Humans like to do what they love to do, not obeying /engedelmeskedve/ the rules of
the society. There are many people who became famous because they did what they wanted.
There are two ways for a hobby to become someone’s job. The first is when you do something and you love it so
much that you would like to live off money or benefit you can make out of it.
The other way is when you take something up /vmilyen tevékenységbe kezd/, like painting or singing as a
profession, and later you start to love it more and more, so this becomes even your hobby, and you do it even at
home or vacation, not just in work time.
Of course, we should make a difference between obsession /megszállottság/ and passion, as obsession sometimes
may not be as pleasant /kellemes/ as it can easily turn into something that can be harmful /káros/ or make a fool
out /kiakaszt/ of the obsessed people. Those ones can easily hand out /szétoszt/ money on things that are
connected with their obsession, and they do it without any control. But this is just the financial side, as they
might take greater risks /veszélyek/ than they could overcome /leküzd/.
