Examinations are over the long summer vacation has begun. How do you feel? How do you want to spend your long holiday?
Many of you may spend hours playing ICQ or computer games. Others will sleep through the days. Indeed we deserve some rest and relaxation. But how about some other interesting and meaningful options?
Let’s begin with taking care of our physical well-being. Choose an exercise or a game that you would like to learn. Joining a swimming or judo class, or learning to ride a bike with friends can all be good fun.
Just remember, you need patience and discipline to master a skill.
Reading is fun too. It helps improve your language skills. Why not make a trip to the big central library in Causeway Bay or visit a nice bookstore? Find a sear, relax and read. Set yourself a goal of reading at least one book this summer.
There are also a variety of activities and camps on offer for young people leadership training and adventure-based activities are all appealing.
Do you know what A.Q. and E.Q. stand for? Adversity quotient and emotional quotient respectively. You can find out more about them through those activities. It may be difficult for you to make up your mind. Consult your teachers or family.
There is a saying: “Helpfulness is the source of happiness.” You are a powerful and practical source of help to those in need. There are various organizations that recruit and offer training for voluntary workers.
Voluntary work can be a challenging and rewarding experience. Years ago, when I was still at school, I enjoyed my time serving physically disabled children at a special school. The experience later inspired me to pursue a career in helping others.
No matter what, enjoy a meaningful and fruitful summer vacation.
