The worst experience of my life by Chiemi A.

I had my worst experience a couple of years ago. When I was in high school, we had examinations every week instead of every semester. Our exam coverage was much less than other schools’ exam coverage. This means that if you study really hard, you are able to finish the test very quickly. Because of the short span between exams and the small exam coverage, the students began to get used to exams. Then, what happens when you get used to something? Yes, you will be less nervous, and feel relaxed. What will you do when you feel relaxed after you concentrate on your test, not having enough sleep studying hard the previous night? You doze off. That’s what we did. If that was all I did, it wouldn’t be the worst experience. The problem was that I was really sleepy, and in fact I fell into a sound sleep. I remember that I was exhausted after my English test, and started to doze off at my desk. I even dreamt a complex dream. Then I woke up by someone tapping on my shoulder. It was my close friend, and she was smirking at me. I was half asleep, and wondered why she seemed so happy. I asked her the reason, and to my surprise, she told me that I was talking in my sleep. She was sitting next to me, so I thought she was the only one to hear my strange talking. However, she shook her head and started asking people around me if they heard something strange during the exam. To my embarrassment, four people said that they heard strange sounds coming out of my mouth. Even worse, one of the people who heard me talking in my sleep was the examiner who watched over us. I was relieved that the examiner was not a teacher but a graduate who did it as a part time job, but I couldn’t help turning red. That was the day that I determined not to fall in a deep sleep in public places ever again.

      Thank you for commenting.
      I hoped so, but unfortunately, I snored in class the other day.
