Describe something you remember from your school or college days
You should say:
- what it is
- what actually happened
- how you felt about it
- and explain why you remember this event
Although there are plenty of memories and moments etched in my consciousness when it comes to going back to the memory lane, if I talk about one moment, it was the time when I was pursuing secondary education, and didn’t submit my assignment deliberately. For this I got a punishment as well – alas!
I was asked to create a presentation by my school teacher. Initially, I took this project lightly. I spent all of the assigned days playing games and wandering around. Although I assigned myself a deadline for the completion, I could not stick to the same. After a while, I completely forgot about my presentation.
On the day of submission, when the teacher asked me about the presentation, I was dumbfounded and speechless. I had no words whatsoever to depict the embarrassment I felt at that point in time. The teacher asked yet again, and when I didn’t answer anything, she understood. Looking at the ferocious expressions on her face, I realized how incautious I was. I had forgotten such an important task, and it was going to impact my overall marks and performance. And then, what I had expected, happened eventually. The teacher deducted the entire marks for the presentation and left me with a zero in hand.
The entire scenario was regretful, and I still feel bad about my mistake. However, two good things that happened after this incident was that I became more cautious and avoided making any more mistakes. This resulted in full attendance, on-time submissions and improved results.
