Model Answer:
It was mid-summer 3 years back when I joined my first job after the graduation and as it was a project based job I had to work really hard. There was a deadline for a client’s project and the team I worked with had been desperate and determined to meet the deadline. Though I was a new member of the team, they expected me to participate with my maximum effort. I was bit worried at first and felt bit perplexed to have such type of pressure just after joining the job but later I took it as challenge and started working hard. After 3 weeks’ of non-stop work and review, finally we were able to deliver the project in time and the office declared 3 days off for the team as well as a bonus. It was Friday and I remember having a very relaxing day. In fact I spent the whole three days with much more relaxation than usual days.

I left my bed at around 10:00 am and spent the day mostly at home. In the evening I went to meet a friend and went to watch a movie in the theatre. At night we had dinner together with 2 others friends and I returned home at around 11:30 pm.

It was a relaxing day mostly because I felt it as a reward after a really hard work and effort. I had such many days but that day was exceptional because I mentally felt it as a really relaxing day. Naturally I was feeling good to be able to finish such a tough project and I had three days’ off and that’s why did not fell to go to office next day. The situation, the routine free life, the contempt and the leisure activities after a long made the day a really enjoyable and relaxing day.
