Describe an important event that you celebrated
You should say:
What it was
When did it happen
Do you prefer to celebrate it with a group of people
And explain how you felt about it
1. (What is it)
Taking up scuba-diving was by far one of the most important events in my life. To be honest, I had never been very keen on sports before, especially as far as water sports were concerned, but once I tried scuba-diving, I completely changed my attitude towards adopting an active way of life. I had not been familiar with the equipment that professional divers use either until one holiday in Nha Trang, when my father came up with the idea of taking a course in scuba-diving.
2. (When did it happen)
It was last summer when my whole family celebrated my parents’ wedding anniversary in Nha Trang. As the weather was unbearably hot, we wanted to travel to places with breathtaking beaches, sunshine and delicious sea food. While we were walking alongside the beach, my father suggested I experience scuba-diving, with the hope that I could be more physically and mentally able to confront the university entrance examination.
3. (Do you prefer to celebrate it with a group of people)
Even though the feeling of immersing myself in the fresh water was self-gratifying, I also wanted to share it with my family and my friends. Although the event is not an achievement or anything like that, it pushed me out of my comfort zone and motivated me to overcome my inner fears. Given the chance, I wish my close friends had been there that day to celebrate that with me.
4. (And explain how you felt about it)
I was a bit frightened at the beginning as I found out that such a person of weak physical strength and stamina as me would have to put not only a tank on, but also a weight belt. But as it turned out, it was not that intimidating at all, contrary to what I had previously thought. I found myself in cool water, where I could breathe freely as well as move easily. The only thing I could tell anyone who does not know whether to do something or not is: do not hesitate and try, because it may become an important event in your life, just like it was in my case.
