End of a phase.

Standard

Three years of college life has gone by. What has changed you ask? I now hold a fancy degree. I have a few more contacts in my phone, some to be remembered for life, some to just be random names, I once knew. If my life dependent on cooking for myself now, I wouldn’t die, I might even have feasts somedays. I can now even bargain, find cheap pizzas and get good deals.

Never did I think, I would say, I will miss studying economics. But as I was going through my last exams, the thought that this may well be the last time, I am studying this, was kind of sad. (Not that it motivated me much, to study harder and longer for the exams. 😛 ) By the end, I did realize, as my time with economics was becoming scarce, its marginal utility was kind of increasing.

College gets you habituated to a way of independent life. Staying away from home, might sound scary in the beginning but the thought of moving in back, even for a short time, is scarier. Thoughts that I actually have to take a shower everyday, not get breakfast at 12 in the noon, have to make the bed after I wake up; is daunting.

The worst part of moving on in life, to the next phase, is having to bit goodbye to the people we met. Of course, they’ll be a part of my life, but it would never be the same. It’s tough going from being with them all the time to just meeting them once in months or even years.

I won’t say it has been the best chapter in my life’s novel. I would like to believe, I have better chapters coming up. But, it sure has been an intersting one. A wave of mixed feelings hit me, when I think of moving on to the next chapter. It looks everything between scary and exciting.

I don’t know if I’m ready but I sure am looking forward to take the leap and move on to the next chapter now.

I have been away from this blog for awhile. I don’t think anyone really noticed, but if bychance someone did, I would like to mark my presence and say, I didn’t die, I just had my finals, yeah that’s close enough. I will try my best to have more regular posts now, so that you guys are forced to notice me. Desperate? I know. I might disappear sometimes but don’t get too happy, I’ll always be back.

What a coincidence! I already had the title of my blog written, I was sure I wanted to right about my college life today and not on the daily prompt. Guess What happened? I get a mail with today’s prompt as  Phase.Can it be more awesome?!

Trekking through Life

Standard

Alma Mater
You’ve been asked to speak at your high school alma mater — about the path of life. (Whoa.) Draft the speech

.

Hey Guys!
I know, I know. It’s last Friday morning before you graduate, and the last thing, you would like to hear is a random lady preaching about life. I have been there, and thought that. I’ll try my best to not bore you guys too much.

It has not been too long since I graduated high school, so I hope my ideas and beliefs about life won’t sound too outdated.
Here’s what I want you guys to know, before you step into the big world out there.

Don’t be Afraid. As soon as I stepped out, of high school, I felt vulnerable. It’s like a protective layer was taken away from me. You might feel lost, in the beginning, but don’t be afraid, you’ll learn the rules of this game called ‘life’ soon enough.

Enjoy Freedom with Care. You’ll enjoy the new found freedom. People will start accepting you are an adult and you can make your own decisions. But remember, with power comes responsibility. No one, except you, is now accountable for the decisions you make. So choose wisely.

Do what you love. You are young, you have time. Explore your options. Do not follow a certain path because the herd is moving that way. If you are passionate about something, don’t let it die. Even if it’s just a hobby.

Cherish family and friends. High School is the place, where we make the best and true friends. Don’t ever lose them. Respect and love your family, because at the end of the day, they are the people you can always count on.

Be True & Kind. Dishonesty, Rude behavior may look like an easy route to success, but it never is. Try to be there for others and create a positive impact in their lives. Kindness goes a long way.

Be positive. Be happy. Try and see the positive in every situation. It’s not easy but definitely worth it. Do not be afraid to have big dreams.
If there is something, which makes you happy, go for it. Don’t depend on people or things to be happy. Make decisions based on your happiness.

You all are wonderful and have the power to go out there and give your best to the world. So just do it.
