I have seen their lives changing from rushing to the classes and now to offices. Together we have been through the phase of eluding ourselves from lectures and binge watching shows and hibernating like a sloth. And then there’s this day where they crawl out of their beds and swiftly show up at their respective work stations.
Friendship in college life has a lot to do with how we look up to our lives. We didn’t know what we were unconsciously learning in all of this. We leant team work while celebrating birthdays at midnight. We learnt how a little contribution by every one of us could make a difference and make someone feel so special. We have learnt supporting each other. At times, we also had to become a psychologist to reassure a broken heart. We learnt the significance of every penny that we spent, though we sucked at handling our finances. We realized letting go off somethings is the best sometimes.
We discovered our individual personalities. That stage has groomed us to what we are today. I guess, I won’t be wrong if I say we have mentally and physically evolved in these years. You had them in your thoughts while going through this piece of writing who unknowingly became an indispensable item in moulding our lives.
Long live our friendships!
Long live us!
Is college more about being an “adult” than picking up information ?
Days beginning with alarm bells and for many with a joint and a cigarette. Figuring out the lectures of the day, chances of proxy and the number of classes already missed. All rushing to classes for attendance. A few young ladies giving a dash to their appearances and the rest not caring the slightest bit to such contemplations. Boys repeating their t-shirts and running with a notebook for every subject. Group activities stating forming a group of friends with a geek who has the sole obligation of finishing the errand. The breaks meant for gossips, crushes, smokes and munchies. Those privileged with mess food have now an in-built energy reserve mode.
The end of classes for the day calls for hopping on to favourite food joints. The joy there, is no less than any festival as the humongous victimization by the professors ends. Roaming around and wasting all the time with friends without doing anything and everything. And calling it a hangout. Facebook check-in, Snapchat stories, Instagram pictures and perfect hashtags.
Social life isn’t social anymore if it’s not there on your social media.
Returning back to hostels and homes within the time limit, or driving around with friends and beer or stacking the bag packs with daru and maal in light of the fact that the day hasn’t finished yet.
Getting into a college is more like buying a holiday package where you make the most of your existence with companions and everyday is a party. You almost do the same stuff what you did prior to attending college but now you are an “adult”. And therefore, you do it claiming yourself to be a pro at it now.
Well, these will soon become memories so just seize the day there!
