Actual Transcription:

After a long day at school and work, I often rent a movie as a way of relaxing in the evening. I usually drop by a local video rental store on my way home, and a movie only costs a few dollars. I also belong to an online video rental Website, so I can rent movies from the comfort of my home. I sometimes invite friends over to watch the movies together. We sometimes make popcorn or order a pizza to eat with the movie. I like most types of movies including comedies and action films, but I can't stand horror movies. If I rent movies, I just have to remember to return them on time; otherwise, I have to pay late fees.
