CRW 2 The Top Ten Reasons I Love …?

March 23, 2015

People like lists. This week, you will create your own top ten list of reasons you love something. What you choose to write about is entirely up to you. For example, you could write about why you love something interesting like a certain song or movie; you could write about someone you love such as a girlfriend or boyfriend; you could choose something challenging, for example, why you love a political ideology such as social democracy; or if you are so inclined, you could lighten the mood with a list of something silly, such as why you love the baby toe on your left foot. (Personally, I favor the baby toe on my right foot more, but as long as I keep them apart in separate shoes, there is little jealosy and fighting. Going barefoot is another story!)

One of my hobbies is golf, which I have been playing since I was ten years old and I am a certified addict. If you also play golf, I’m sure you can relate to my list. To nongolfers, I hope I have provided some insight into the wonderful game.

Top 10 Reasons I love golf are…

1. It’s a great form of light exercise, especially if one walks the roughly 7-8 kilometer course.
2. It’s a way to build and maintain social relationaships with people across all generations.
3. How could one not love being surrounded by natural beauty like my home course; walking quietly through wide open green spaces, trees, flowers, lakes, and the occassional wildlife.
4. It provides healthy competition with oneself, nature, and one’s playing partners. In fact, golfers can play competitvely for most of their playing life.
5. The challenge of trying to master an unmasterable game is addictive.
6. Having to maintain emotional control when faced with difficulties and learning not to dwell on negative outcomes is a huge mental challenge.
7. Golf requires planning and successfully executing one’s strategies; golf is an exercise in creative problem solving.
8. Golf offers the incredible feeling of hitting a three hundred yard drive.
9. There are no referees, so it tests one’s moral character, integrity, and sportsmanship.
10. Courtesy to one’s playing partners and the game’s traditions are vital.

    One of my favorite hobbies is traveling around. Not just limited in Korea but in everywhere which I haven’t been. Last winter vacation, I visited United States and last summer vacation, I visited three countries which are in Europe. Likewise, I love to travel around whenever I have a time.

    Top 10 reasons that I love traveling are

    1. Travel makes me to feel freely. When I live in real life, I just stay in dorm or school. I feel just moving around like a chain. But traveling can make me feel more freely because I can see many different surroundings or people.
    2. Travel can give me various food cultural experiences. Especially, Korea has many various food styles to cook so travelers can feel various tastes and appetizers.
    3. Travel can give me various senses for emergent people or situation. For example, when I was in America I saw many people who have possibilities to make me in danger. After that experience, I could learn recognition of who can make me in danger.
    4. When I travel around, I can know various kinds of people’s life style. I can see many various surrounding of people’s living. If I visit hunger’s cities, I could learn how sorrowful they are and what they really need.
    5. Especially traveling alone can make me stronger for living alone. Because I don’t know what will happen in my future especially when I travel another cities
    6. Traveling can improve my health. Because I need very strong leg and strong health to stay for a long time to looking around.
    7. Traveling can treat my sorrowful feelings or damaged heart. I can throw over the bad feelings.
    8. Traveling can wide my sights. I can learn many things while traveling such as patient, generous eta.
    9. Traveling can improve my foreign language skills. If I travel to another country, I couldn’t speak my mother tongue. So I should use other country’s language.
    10. Traveling can make my memories more plentiful. This can be more effective, while writing a diary in traveling.

      I also love traveling! All articles of your list are good but I like 10 most. The memories of the travel remain for a long time. When I look back on my first traveling abroad, it seems like it was yesterday. I have all of the photos and everyday memos. Sometimes, I read them and it reminds me of the excitement and enjoyment I had.

      I agree that traveling can wide my sight. When I went to Utah, I learned many things. They who lived in there were different to me such as their lifestyle and their ways of thinking. For example, they held the door open when I entered a building. It was a kind of culture shock. So I could wide my sight through this exprience. I love traveling too!

      I can’t agree more. When I wake up late and don’t have enough time to dress up myself, I feel bad for all day long. In the past, I really don’t care about my clothes and style. But one day, I realized that clothes can actually influence one’s mood and self-confidence. Knowing that, I got interested in dressing up and I still love it. Style maketh man!

      Same here! I am interested of wearing clothes and matching outlooks with bags or shoes. These days i totally agree with your opinion that a well-dressed body is the first step in impressing other people and can improve a person’s image. Especially, Korean people are sensitive of how people look like. It motivates people to find new style and neat appearances.

    It is baseball season again. Baseball is one of the most popular sports in Korea. I really love playing and watching baseball, and I am on the baseball club at the university now. There’s no reason not to love a baseball game but if you still need some convincing, here is list of reasons to fall in love with a baseball game.

    1. The excitement! There is electricity in the air in the stadium is unmatched.

    2. Baseball can help form great bonds between you and your friends and even those who are strangers. Watching the game surrounded by fellow fans creates a great sense of closeness.

    3. The food! Although it may be a little expensive, there is nothing like enjoying a chicken and beer at a baseball game.

    4. Baseball comes along every spring, accompanied by sunshine. I have always looked forward to opening day of the baseball season every year.

    5. The cheering songs. In Korea, all of the full time baseball players have their own fight song. When you go to baseball stadiums, cheering is also much fun.

    6. Baseball is timeless and, ultimately, fair in the offering of opportunity.

    7. Baseball is a team game made up of individual performances.

    8. The Presence of Failure. In baseball, how often you fail is less important than your timing when you do succeed.

    9. The strategy. Baseball is a slow moving game which involves a great deal of strategy, and patience, as well as athletic prowess.

    10. It is the best way to kill time. There is really no better way to spend the day than playing or watching a baseball, at least to me.

    My favorite hobby is playing digital games. Digital games include PC games, Console games, and Mobile games. Among these, I often play the PC games on my computer. I have more than 200 PC game titles and cleared 90% of them. I usually play the game 5~6 hours in a week, and sometimes I played the game almost half a day if the game was really cool. In addition to this, I review the game I cleared on my blog and I enjoy creating secondary contents of games, such as Machinima, Use MOD(modification), and online streaming. The reasons why I love playing digital games are…

    1.Digital games have wide range of choice. Many people think digital games are online games, but it is just one genre of the digital games. It is distinguished by platform, play style.

    2.I like the digital games which have a nice storytelling and cool graphic performance. Like BioShock Inifnite and The Witcher, the game gives fun and impression to me.

    3.Some digital games have extreme challenges. While I playing the digital games, I am totally immersed in the game.

    4.There are many interesting virtual-world in the digital games. I can experience the medieval age, World War II, inferno, space, steampunk, and so on through the digital games. The intensity of virtual experiences makes me feel more excited.

    5.Anytime I want to play the digital games, I just turn on the program. Anytime I want to quit the game, I just turn off the program.

    6.I can interact with many other players in the Korea, also in the World.

    7.I can experience original movie or drama’s prequel or supplementary story through the digital games. For example, The Lord of the Rings franchise and The Walking Dead franchise is typical.

    8.I can create secondary content through some digital games. For instance, Starcraft and Warcraft support some making programs to players who want to make their own game map or user MOD.

    9.I can play the games with my friends.

    10.Above all things, the digital games are fun. Game is the thing of fun and interesting. If certain game is boring and tedious, it should be neglected by almost game players.

    My little brother is 7 years younger than me. As I live in dormitory now, we don’t live together anymore but I often think of him.I’ve never expressed how much I love him and I promise I’m not going to tell him that, because my sense of shame forbids me to say such thing. Instead of telling him, I’m going to disclose top 10 reasons why I love him right here.

    1. First of all, My little brother is good at my errands. As he is the youngest of my family members He is the only person I can give lots of errands. When I send him on an errand to buy or bring me what I need, he always do the right thing without any grumbling. It is my favorite aspect of him which usually amaze me.

    2. He sometimes make me feel like I’m smart as a teacher. He usually aske lots of questions about studying, luckily that I can answer so far. when I help him find answers, I feel like I’m a smart person.

    3. His cute worries make me smile. Nowadays, He pour his worries out to me. For example,One day he messaged me ‘I lost my heart to a girl. but I look so ugly for being her boyfriend.what am I gonna do?’. His silly but cute worry made me smile all day long.

    4. I like laughing seeing my little brother shed large drops of tears. It may sounds creepy, but I’m sure you will laugh as well when you see him crying. Since he has as soft heart, whenever he hears a scolding from parents, He immediately starts to cry twisting his face which looks so funny.

    5. He eats my food well. when my mother is out, I used to make lunch for him. To be honest, It tastes not that good. This is the reason I feel appreciation when he eats up all the food I made. Of course, I’ve never heard him saying my food is delicious.

    6. He gave me a memorable birthday gift for me. When he was 12 years old, He wrote a letter with small pieces of celebrating comments collected from his own friends which doubled the celebration. I still remember that uneven handwritings and his warm heart even though he was young enough to impress me.

    7. He is also good at giving massages. My family, especially my dad, often have shoulder massage as he is a best massager among us.

    8. His siging is quite delightful that I can’t help laughing loudly. He is a tone deaf person. He always recreate the existing famous song into a weird song that I can’t explain in words.

    9. I like seeing him being taller. It is surprising to see him grew taller than last month. I think nobody will say it is not exciting to see his own brother’s growth process.

    10. He is my own repairman. When it comes to fixing something broken, he is a lot better than me. He is very helpful as much as a real repairman. I’m envious of his ability that can fix most broken things by himself.

I also like to work out. Especially, I go to the gym regularly at least three times in a week from 4 years ago. The reason I started to work out at first was to diet for losing my weight. But by keep working out I get feelings of active and refresh, finally I do exercise for happiness.

    I love sports climbing. It might be unfamiliar to someone as I was, but nowadays the number of people who enjoy sports climbing is increasing. I’ve seen entertainers doing sports climbing in TV show several times and there is sports climbing club in our university. People love sports climbing for many reasons and you might be interested in this exciting sports after you read my list.

    1. I can build strength and flexibility of my body as it requires enough strength and adequate posing to climb.
    2. It is a whole body exercise. By doing this, I can use all of my muscles including those which I rarely use.
    3. It is one of the most effective calorie burning exercise. Hanging up on the wall for a long time burns lots of calories.
    4. It is a team sports. I need someone to support me while I go up and vice versa. As the role of supporting person is preventing hanging person from falling, it can build responsibility and feel rapport between two people.
    5. It relieves stress. As it is a physically challenging exercise, I have to put my whole energy into it. After doing it, I feel little bit exhausted but also refreshed and animated.
    6. It does not just train my body but also my brain. In sports climbing, there are something like quizes. If I want to solve a quize, I have to climb with only certain holds, not all of them. It requires me to think what pose I have to take and imagine myself climbing.
    7. It makes me feel good about myself. When I succeed to go to the top or solve a quize, I’m proud of myself.
    8. I feel alive when I am hanging by a rope in the air.
    9. When I go rock climbing, the lunch on the mountain is so good. A meal after a hard workout is so good.
