Weekends are the time (usually) most people look forward to after a weekday, even though some work on weekends, but this only applies if you have free time on the weekend.
There are many exciting activities that you can do on weekends, be it with family, friends, or even alone. and these are some activities I did this weekend
1. Create a to do list
I don’t like it when things look messy, even if the little things make me frustrated easily. Therefore, I need to make a to-do list for the next week. To make it I do not normally write with a single, I used to find references to what others do because sometimes it can be an inspiration to me, and even though, in the end, I will adjust my abilities.
By making a to do list I can understand myself, like what I did last week, whether all the things I wanted to do didn’t happen or even all missed. That way I can evaluate myself.
I also include activities like wanting to do something that’s not my concern, like helping a friend’s job or someone else’s. The point is to make time to do something to someone else.
2. Read books
This weekend I’m going to fill the time by reading a book. I still have some unfinished books I’ve read, like Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki. and some reading lists on Quora that I’ve saved (bookmarks) for me to read this weekend. I’d rather read quora than a random tweet on Twitter or news on Facebook. It’s not worth it, but if I want to read the news usually from the sound, tempo.co, coils, seconds.

3. Tidying room
Usually, I’m too lazy for this thing, even though it looks trivial but in fact, it can make the mood better. And if you are too busy with daily activities, it will make the room unkempt.
Well, instead of spending time on weekends just lazing around, there’s nothing wrong with moving your body and cleaning the room.
I’m the type to be lazy to exercise, because every time I go out I always use a motorbike, even if it’s less than 1 km. But I believe that exercise is a fun activity to do, besides it can make the body healthier it can also make me feel happier. Since I’m only in the flat this weekend, I plan to walk every time I go out. My body is old enough to be lazy.
To monitor activities, I usually use the Google Fit application and the Mi Fit smartwatch. I am obsessed with seeing graphs and things that are measurable. so I will know the progress.
These past few months I’ve become fond of writing, whether it’s useful or whatever’s in my head. I believe that writing is one of the fun activities you can do on weekends. Writing can also be a way to overflow the heart that may not be expressable. or it can also foster creativity. I poured out a hobby of writing through this blog and writing answers to some questions on Quora. At least I can help someone else.
6. Learn a foreign language
Learning a foreign language is very challenging for me. I’m still deepening my English and trying to learn another language like Russian. living in the 21st century will not cool if it does not understand English. many benefits if we know a foreign language, such as being able to communicate with native speakers, being able to read a foreign language book, or helping if we travel to another country.
For English, I have a teacher from America and she’s a native speaker and indirectly I learned an English American accent. I used to like British accents because they looked cool, but once I knew what an American accent was like, I immediately thought that, yeah.. this is an accent that suits for me, Americans like to combine words so it looks succinct and seems lazy, really my type 😀
This week I learned the Common phrase in American or a common phrase in English American. I learned from youtube Linguamarina. But after I confirmed with my American teacher, she said that not everything I could say because there were some phrases that might have been popular 10 years ago, so if spoken now it looks a little strange. thank my teacher <3
In the Russian language, I learned from the book “Practical Russian in 1 Week” by Laura Gracefull. I also have friends from Russian who help me learn Russian. Sometimes we read dialogue from books directly as well as voice messages so I can listen over and over again. Learning Russian is also not easy and there are challenges of its own. there are some challenges according to RBTH.
I think having teachers from native speakers is necessary because this book is also written by Indonesians and although it is very good for Indonesians and native speakers know better which is more natural.
So that’s all I do on weekends during the week, nothing special actually. What about you, what are you doing on the weekend?
