41 Describe a live sports match that you have watched

I have always loved watching sports, but regarding the given topic, I would like to talk about a sports match that I watched live. It was indeed a special experience for me, mainly, because it was my first time watching a live hockey match and secondly because I was watching it with my family. I vividly remember that it was a matter of two years back when I passed matriculation with flying colors and my family had surprised me with the tickets for the national level hockey match, which was to be held the next day in a nearby city. To make the experience memorable, I had planned my journey well and bought some T-shirts to wear during the match, depicting my love for the game. On the day of the event, we reached the stadium by car. It was a long drive, so we decided to buy some drinks. It was at this time that the banner shop caught my eye, and I bought some posters to cheer up for my team. My brother grabbed some snacks, and we entered the hall to take our seats, which were in the middle row. The mesmerizing view of the place was overwhelming, and the ambiance of that place filled me with endless enthusiasm. The match was tough and long, but the energy of the players kept everyone interested. We cheered for the players and supported them at every point. Eventually, after several ups and downs, difficulties, injuries, and rivalry faced by the competitors in the match, I was on cloud nine when the team I was supporting held the prize in triumph. I felt like it was me who had just won. The icing on the cake was that when the players were departing, they had to cross our seats and I just happened to get an autograph from my favorite player, Ms. Rani Rampal. It was a lovely experience that motivated me to play this sport. I will never forget the things I saw and felt that day as it gave me a chance to become a sportsperson and inculcated those optimistic vibes from the field in me.

It is my belief that a promise once made must never be broken as it would be better to not a promise if that is the case. And regarding the given topic, I would like to share an experience when a promise took away my night’s sleep just because I wanted to keep it. To be honest, I hate those people, who make promises, which they can’t even keep. But, one day I had to do the same for my mother because she is the person, I care about the most. Yes, it was in grade 10 that my scores started to plummet just because I was becoming careless towards my academics. My mother was worried sick that I would fail and scolded me regularly, but I was in my own world, feeling it insignificant to follow her advice. But one day, I found her crying in her room and that was when my heart sank. I came forward to comfort her and ended up promising her that I will study regularly till I score a good grade, without any complaints. I knew that it was not possible for me to fulfill that, but I still promised her because, at that time, I could not see any other option. From that moment, I started preparing strategies on how to keep my words true and my mother happy. I burnt the midnight oil and studied very hard to score more. It is true that it was not at all easy to do those things and I had to bring a sudden change in my life for my mom. It is seldom easy for one to do things against will, but unexpectedly it soon became a target that I myself wanted to achieve. Now, it was easier to work on it and everything seemed to be coming along. After giving my exams, I realized that a promise can actually change one’s life as this one helped me regain my interest in studies and helped me focus on my career. I always stay grateful to my mom for taking that promise from me and helping me achieve it because I actually passed with flying colors. And it was a new beginning of my life.
