Sample Answer of Describe a Time when You Were Sleepy but Had to Stay Awake

This has happened more than once, but I would like to talk about the time when I was travelling for a wedding; I guess it was in 2016. I had to travel from Saudi to India, which was urgent.

I took leave from work for ten days and booked a flight from Jeddah to Jaipur, and It had a layover of 7 hours in Mumbai, which was kind of long, especially when you travel alone.

So I woke up at 7 am on Thursday and had to go to work and then leave for the airport at 3 pm as my flight was scheduled for 7 pm. I reached Mumbai around midnight and had the next flight at 8 in the morning.

Being alone, I dint feel comfortable taking a nap as I was scared I might miss my flight. So I went to Starbucks, ordered a coffee and used their Wi-Fi to pass my time.

Later I went window shopping and got some gifts for my niece and nephew. Finally, the boarding started at seven, so I was the first to reach the gate, boarded the flight, landed at Jaipur at nine and went home.

Being the wedding house, it was completely filled with guests, so here again, I could not sleep and had to stay awake till night. Falls, I was just drinking tea and coffee to keep myself functional.
