Describe a time you were sleepy but had to stay awake
You should say:
When it happened
Why you were sleepy
Why you had to stay awake
And explain why you stayed awake
Well, a time I felt drowsy but had to stay awake was actually when I was busy preparing for my final last year.
I clearly remember that our history teacher helped us highlight a very wide range of categories regarding the world history on the textbook for us to memorize just three days before the exam. You know, this article is from Laokaoya website, we had mixed feelings during that time because we were happy that our teacher pointed out the essential part of knowledge that we were supposed to be tested and at the same time we felt it was nearly impossible to keep this vast amount of potential answers in our mind within three days.
I was pumped up to cram for the exam at the very beginning, but then I got worn out and pretty drowsy during the last night because there’s so much to memorize and it consumed me a lot of energy. It’s just like running a 5k marathon, you know the ending is approaching but somehow you can’t resist the temptation to have a break. But, thank God that I stuck to it.
Well, the reason why I stayed awake was that this final meant so much to me. If I didn’t prepare wholeheartedly, I would have less possibility of getting admitted into a good college.
