Topic 4: Describe a time when you are very busy.
You should say:
We all get busy in times of exam, sickness of a family member, for completing assignment, to meet deadline etc. and though most of us wish to lead a relaxed and hassle free life, the situation demands our promptness in action and we all get busy then. One such busy time I still remember was the time when I had the deadline to submit my thesis paper in the final year of my university.
I had about 2 months to complete the thesis and I killed almost 2 weeks due to my job pressure. I joined a company as a part time employee at the beginning of my final term and had to work for about 4-5 hours per day. I had classes to attend, exams to prepare for, study and work at office. I had hardly few hours remaining for my personal stuffs and I was worried that I was falling behind my schedule for my thesis paper submission. The thesis was a complex one and I had to visit libraries, browse internet, do group discussions and meetings and brainstorm a lot to organize the writing for the thesis. Moreover I had to visit some local offices to collect data for my thesis. Those days were so tough and I had been so busy that sometimes I slept for 4 hours only at night.
The work pressure, tension, tight schedules, deadlines, moving from place to place, classes & study were my life. I did not visit my parents for the whole semester as they were in my hometown. There were hardly any month that I did not go to my hometown to meet my parents but during that period I did not have the chance to do so. In fact I was unable to go to my hometown for about 7 months. I usually watch 2-3 movies in my computer each week, go for walking each morning, visit some close friends, maintain my social networking profiles and update my blog but during this period I was so busy that I did not do any of these activities I usually maintain.
I am so lucky that I was finally completed the thesis and submitted it in due time. To my surprise, I got a straight 'A' in my thesis, continued my job and did well in my term final. But for that I had to sacrifice a lot and maintain a strict routine. I slept 4-5 hours each day on an average, read academic books and notes in public transportation while moving from one place to another, and utilized every single hour I got. Moreover to finish things in time I stopped lot of my other activities that I usually do. Thus I had been able to handle the pressure and deadline. I have to thank some of my teachers, classmates and some of my friends without whom it would have been impossible for me to finish everything correctly and in time.
