Describe a time you made a promise to someone
You should say:
What the promise was
To whom you made it
Whether it was easy or difficult to keep
Last December; I promised my mom that I would spend time with her on her birthday even though I was buried to my neck at work. Usually Fm too busy to go home at the end of the year because I have a lot of quotas to meet my boss. In order to stay true to my word, I had to work overtime for a few weeks so that I could tie all my loose ends before taking off for the holiday.
To be honest, that was the most stressed I have been in a very long time. I worked myself to the bone and barely got a wink of sleep every night, plus I had no time on my hands for anything else. I skipped lunch more times than I can count and even went hungry for dinner some nights. My boss runs things with an iron fist and he’s not very lenient when it comes to deadlines. That’s why I had to make sure I kept my nose to the grindstone.
In the end, I was able to finish in the nick of time. I made it by the skin of my teeth, but as soon as I submitted the final document, a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. After that, I was free to spend the weekend with my mother and celebrate her special day. I know that me being there meant the world to her.
