About Myself

   I was born on the 3rd of July 1990 in Moscow. Like many other children I went to a kindergarten. At the age of 6 I went to school. My school was next to my house. Many pupils of our primary school were my neighbours. I was very proud when I became a pupil.
   But very soon I realized that this was not a game, and I had to work hard if I wanted my parents to be pleased with me. Now, when the school years have passed so quickly I see clearly that sometimes I succeeded and sometimes I failed in my intention.
   I am an outgoing person. I think I took after my father. As a matter of fact my parents are friendly and hospitable. They like to invite our friends and neighbours.
   I like to go to discos, to parties with my friends. We like to dance, have coffee and soft drinks. I like when somebody plays the guitar or the piano. But I myself don't play any musical instrument. Certainly we talk a lot about life, our problems. But now I cant afford to spend much time for entertainment.
   Sometimes I like to stay home alone, especially when I need some relaxation. Then I listen to music, watch television or read books. 1 am fond of reading. I prefer historical novels. Some detective stories are very interesting too. It is considered that detective stories can t be regarded as the real literature. I don't agree with this. Everything depends on the skill and gift of the writer.
   I don't go in for sport regularly. But if I have a possibility, I go to the swimming pool. I also like to play different ball games such as volleyball, basketball.
   I am a school leaver now. I have good marks. I am going to enter the university. Our teachers say I am good at Literature. It seems to me that in fact I have some attitude for it.
   My parents think that after graduating from the university it will be difficult to find a job I'll be trained for. But as for me it's early to discuss this question. The most important thing now is to pass the entrance exams well and to enter the university.

О себе

   Я родился 3 июля 1990 года в Москве. Как и другие дети, я ходил в детский сад. В 6 лет я пошел в школу. Моя школа находилась рядом с моим домом. Многие ученики нашей начальной школы были моими соседями. Я очень гордился тем, что стал школьником.
   Но очень скоро я понял, что это не игра, и я должен очень стараться, если хочу, чтобы мои родители были довольны мной. Теперь, когда школьные годы прошли так быстро, я понимаю, что иногда это у меня получалось, а иногда нет.
   Я — общительный человек. Я думаю, что я похож в этом на моего отца. Мои родители дружные и гостеприимные. Они любят приглашать в гости наших друзей и соседей.
   Я люблю ходить на дискотеки и вечеринки с друзьями. Нам нравится танцевать, пить кофе и безалкогольные напитки. Мне нравится, когда кто-нибудь играет на гитаре или фортепиано. Но лично я не играю ни на каком музыкальном инструменте. Обычно мы много говорим о жизни, о наших проблемах. Но сейчас я не могу тратить много времени на развлечения.
   Иногда мне нравится оставаться одному дома, особенно, когда мне нужно расслабиться. Тогда я слушаю музыку, смотрю телевизор или читаю. Я очень люблю читать. Я предпочитаю исторические романы. Некоторые детективы также очень интересны. Считается, что детективы — это не настоящая литература. Я не согласен с этим. Все зависит от умения и одаренности автора.
   Я не занимаюсь спортом регулярно. Но если у меня есть возможность, я иду в бассейн. Мне также нравится играть в разные игры с мячом, например, в волейбол, баскетбол.
   Сейчас я выпускник. У меня хорошие оценки. Я собираюсь поступить в университет. Наши учителя говорят, что я делаю успехи в литературе. Мне кажется, что у меня действительно есть определенные способности к этому.
   Мои родители думают, что после получения высшего образования в университете будет трудно найти работу по специальности. Но, как по мне, еще рано обсуждать этот вопрос. Самое главное сейчас — хорошо сдать вступительные экзамены и поступить в университет.
