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 engage my maximum effort. I was a bit worried at first and felt a bit perplexed to have such type of pressure just after joining the job but later I took it as a 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 feel the urge to go to the 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.
