Graduation

Graduation...

A word that brings about mixed emotions in me ..

Just a tick over 21 yrs of age , and i take my final strides towards a B.E. degree.. As the enormity of the idea sets in , I realise that this will perhaps be the biggest,most important thing I have achieved till date.

The last four years spent in a madhouse by the name TSEC happen to be the best of my life.

From those self conscious early days in F.E. to the 'Baaps of the college' attitude in B.E. , life has come a long way ..
The numerous ATKTs in the early years , the standing in the queue for the concession forms , getting caught in all those proxy issues , the last minute cramming during preparatory leaves , the singing during lectures , the writing on the desks , being a permanent member of the defaulters club , the innumerable meetings with the Princi. All of it will be soo .. soo missed.
Well actually .. Won't be missing the KTs ..

Meeting all those amazingly talented seniors , idolising them , trying to emulate them and failing miserably ..Time and again..
Being an essential part of the college sports team .. Giving heart and soul for the cricket team. Those 3 trips to BITS - Pilani.
Some of the numerous experiences that'll stay with me for the rest of my life.

Vitamin C :

" As we go on .. We remember .. All the times we've had together..
And as our lives change .. Come whatever ..
We will still be , friends forever "

Damnnn ... Gonna miss it all ..

It is so damn strange but true that only when we come to know that some good things around us are going to come to an end that we realise their true worth and then we want to have more of them. Its sad but it always happens that way. The paranoia of departing from something or someone strikes us only when its too late and then we panic. There are farewell parties, tears are shed, good old days are remembered. After all these experiences I now strongly believe when they say that all good things have to come to an end.

I only wish I had realised it a lot earlier.

I think its paradoxical
The canteen and the shitty college aint really worth it but the oncoming nostalgia gives us a false sense of their worth

hear hear. netneo nailed it i think. hindsight tends to gloss over a lot of the unpleasantness of any experience. all i'd say is, this is in no way an of of a journey. the friends you've made will still be your friends. the ones that don't stay in touch weren't that close!

best luck for the ensuing mayhem!
