Question: Describe an event you felt unhappy about, and explain why.
You can say:
when it waswhat happenedwhy you were unhappyEveryone expects good things to happen, but if they cannot get the desired result, they feel unhappy. That’s what happened to me. I was unhappy with my final score. In the last semester of my academic career, I could not get the desired score and it was an unhappy event for me. It was the final examination of my last undergraduate course in university, so I was hoping to pass it with flying colors. I had spent a great amount of time on my studies and thus expected a good result. But everything was out of my control. I do not know what happened with the scores and me. But then I realized (that) it was my fault. I had missed my lab report, which accounted for one-third of the total score. I had no one to blame but myself. Now, the days are gone, but the memory is still vivid in my mind.
