Describe a time you got up extremely early.
You should say:
When it was;
What time you got up;
Why you got up early;
And explain how you felt when you got up.
One day a few months ago, I got up very early. It was my birthday; I invited a few friends to come over to my home for my birthday party. We agreed to meet at my home around 12pm. So, I needed to make sure everything was ready before they came. But I was caught up with51 work the night before, so I had to push all my preparations to52 the next morning.
I remember that I got up at about 5.30. I began by baking my own birthday cake. Actually, at the time, I had just learned how to bake a cake. To show off my baking skills, I decided to bake a birthday cake myself. It took me almost three hours to make the cake perfectly. Then, since I don’t have a knack for cooking, I also prepared hotpot for lunch, which doesn’t require a lot of skill.
After I nailed all those tasks53, the time was close to 11am. Out of respect for the guests, I cleaned the apartment from top to bottom before my friends came. When they arrived, we enjoyed a hotpot feast and also the birthday cake I made. We all had a blast that day.
As for how I felt about getting up early, well, I rarely get up that54 early. I was so busy for the whole morning and didn’t even have a break. But I did realize that rising early allows you to do more things than usual. Perhaps I should change my daily routine by starting my day before 7.
51 was caught up with:忙着赶（自己的工作)
52 push all my preparations to:把所有要做的准备工作都推到了（第二天早上）
53 nailed all those tasks：完成了所有的任务
