Describe a situation when you celebrated an achievement
You should say:
- What you did
- When you celebrated it
- Who you celebrated it with
And explain how you felt about that achievement.
You know, as soon as I graduated from university, I threw a big party to celebrate this achievement. That was one of the toughest times I’d been through because I had to pull a bunch of all-nighters over many months to revise for my graduation exams. I looked like a panda with dark circles around my eyes, and my hair went gray. My parents, seeing me like this, were very worried and they never ceased to encourage me to keep moving forward.
In the end, I did it. I mean, I passed the university entrance exam. Needless to say, my parents were over the moon. They, like, wanted to announce to the world that I finally graduated from FTU, one of the most prestigious universitis in my city. Personally, besides feeling happy and proud of myself, I was also grateful for their love and care, so I decided to use my savings to hold a BBQ in my own backyard.
The day the party took place, nearly one hundred guests came, most of whom showed up early to help me prepare the food and drinks. During the party, the atmosphere was very cozy because I just invited my family members, relaties and a few acquaintances. I could see that my parents were very proud because I had grown up and become mature enough to find a job, hopefully a well-paid one to support my family.
