I think, therefore I write

At the end of 4 years!

Hi people,

The inspiration for this post lies in the e-mail that I received from a friend. The mail was actually authored by an alumnus of MIT who had listed 50 cool facts,addressing freshers who enter college with great hopes. The mail was too good,covering all the stuff that students tend to miss out,considering them to be insignificant. So, here are some of the things that I like to share at the end of these precious 4 years….

1. Having friends is great,but never get over-indulged. This is because when they change,you will be struck by an over-powering helplessness and loneliness. If your friends change, let them and if you want to change for the better,feel free to do so.

2.Enjoy the subtle happenings in college,because one day,those trivia might look so precious,but long gone.

3.Do not worry too much about being sincere. Enjoy small mischievous moments with your friends. Take things sportively-I mean moments like being scolded for late submission of assignments or an incomplete record or a difficult experiment for your lab test πŸ˜‰

4.Do not strive too much for marks. It is better to strive for knowlegde. Marks and knowledge are totally unrelated.

5.Record your precious moments in the form of videos,photographs etc. because some day,they will giveΒ you reasons to smile with tears in your eyes. πŸ™‚

6. Preserve favourite songs of your college life as they might turn out to your ever-green songs reminding the shared moments of happiness.

7.Let go of certain things if needed,though you may think that they are the essence of your life. It’s time to learn to move on.

8.Learn to accept things as they come since nothing isΒ Β gonna get better by worrying.

9.Try some risks in life just for the fun of it,but don’t get caught πŸ˜‰ (I think I have tried quite a few to have a good laugh,anytime I re-live them).

10.Never try too much to please someone. It results in more hurt than it is worth for. πŸ™‚

There are lots more,but these are the top priorities. All of us might have experienced the truth of such ideas at some point of our college life(If not till now,we will certainly do so in this final phase of 1 month). So share these lovely moments with your friends and enjoy these once-in-a-lifetime experiences before it is too late. πŸ™‚

Until later. πŸ™‚

    Life is an adventure and somethings have to be learnt through real experience.
    One such experience is college life and we cannot transform it into testaments or a quiver of advices.
    People have to learn it through their own experiences.

    Nice post…

    Thanks all.. As Venkat pointed out,each person will have to have the experience to realise certain facts. However, it feels good to know others’ experiences,if at all,anyone needs some prior induction into what real college life is. The above said 10 points are just a few of my personal learnings… There are lots more which cannot be put to words.. Thanks to everyone,again πŸ™‚
