Note: for ease of understanding all the IMPERFECT verbs have been translated as 'used to...' In reality, once the context is understood in English we would just use the normal past simple.

When I was young I used to love rap music whilst now I prefer classical music. I don’t know why I changed. Maybe I became calmer over the years. When I was eight years old I used to be quite small but since then I grew and now I play rugby. I spend lots of time taking photos, it’s my pastime, but before I used to draw all the time. I used to draw animals most of the time whereas now I take photos of the landscape. I love nature. I used to take ice skating lessons because my mother used to want it but I did not used to like it much. Recently I started piano lessons and it pleases me a lot.
