I began to play chess frequently in elementary school and went to many chess competitions. I was one of the top
chess players in Gainsville, FL. Nowadays, it is a more casual activity that I often partake in at the library. When
my friends and I share the same study hall after a major exam, we often relieve our stress through intense chess
playing. Although I do not participate in competitions anymore, I still often partake in chess matches in the library
and still enjoy it everyday.
I played piano very often in elementary and middle school. Piano is often a stress reliever for me
to vent my emotions into, such as when I had a bad day at school or when I'm overly excited about things.
It's a peaceful instrument that brings a lot of joy into my life. The accomplishment of learning how to play
a difficult piece masterfully makes me jubilant inside. In the end, playing the piano is a well rounded hobby
that I do occasionally to let off some steam or to play some of my favorite songs.
I often read Time Magazine to learn the news of the world and other magazines, such as Reader's Digest.
I also read PC World to learn the latest computer hardware that is coming out. Money Magazine is another
magazine that I frequently read for the merits of learning how to use my money in the future.
