I think, therefore I write

My e-thingy!!!

Hi all, 🙂

This post is not for the “sincere” students. Such people will do better if they skip this post. 🙂

I have been tempted for long, to write about my e-experiences at college. I even put up a post once, but removed it soon, on a second thought. However, enough is enough. I can’t resist the temptation anymore and so here I am to share my e-experiences of my college life 😉

When I entered college, I did not know how to handle a mobile. I had never typed a sms (Really!!!). Thanks to my dad, he refused to buy me a mobile in the 1st year (The reason was that my bro managed his college life without a mobile.Argh!!! I don’t see the purpose of his college life :P). However, I am not a person who will give up so soon. I took up the necessary training in mobile usage with my friend’s mobile in the 1st semester. But then, I needed my own mobile for the fun and feel of it, along with some personal reasons. So, with all my savings (Thanks to my saving habit at school), I bought a second-hand mobile, in my 2nd semester with my friend’s help. Then began the journey……

Within a month, I became the fastest sms-sender among my friends and slowly I got so addicted to it that I can’t be without messaging. All my friends started making plans to deprive me of my mobile for 1 whole day, but thanks to them, they never got so serious to implement it. Whatever be the time, place… I don’t care. I can do the texting without any difficulty (Note: My ability is limited to Nokia mobiles). All this texting experience started to turn into real use in my 6th semester(I have wasted so much time :P) It all started with the so-famous “EVS” examination (Actually, the e-thingy had been already implemented for class tests,but what’s the big deal??? When you can text during classes, then you can text during class tests!!!) I never expected that this would become such a sought-after technique in our class and then obviously, I joined the so-called network framed and nurtured by our ex-class representative 😉 However, unlike him, I am not an expert in all kinds of tools,but only with the e-things.

I never thought that my ability in this, would have become so known, until I got my slam book filled by my class guys. There was not a single entry without mentioning about this. 😉 Anyhow, I never faced any difficulty, because we girls always have our pencil pouches and other accessories to get away with it. The only difficulty is that my stupid mobile can’t tolerate my torture and will get stuck or switched off, if I type too fast(that too, this will happen after I finish typing up a long stuff).  I had an active co-member  and an inactive receiver from the girls’ side. That’s all for the girls strength 🙁

During the soft computing internals that was a fiasco for many, the first amateur who got caught unfortunately, was sitting behind me and  the exam was too easy to use the e-thingy. So, it was no big deal coming out,unscathed. Also, it was fun doing the non-elective helping. I won’t even know if what am transmitting is right or not, but still, there are people awaiting this greek and latin answers.Apart from theory papers, my other areas of expertise have been lab examinations. The only difference will be the tool used ;)Not a single lab examination passed with my code, except for the DCS lab examination (Maybe C and C++ labs, I don’t remember).

Irrespective of the circumstances and consequences, I should say, I had quite a good time with this. I am missing it already this semester,not to say, I will miss these mischievous moments of my college life forever. I think I have lost touch during this last semester, but like you never forget cycling and swimming, once you learn them, I believe that I can gain my speed if I want to. 🙂

 This post may be irritating to the “sincere” college students, but it’s all your fault that you ignored my warning at the beginning of this post.

P.S: This post may seem more of boasting. Sorry guys, the longing for putting up a post on this topic has been in my mind for a long while. So, please excuse,if my pride is above the limit.

    ” The reason was that my bro managed his college life without a mobile.Argh!!! I don’t see the purpose of his college life “- I felt the same back then about my sibling.!!! 🙂 Nice one.Ethingy is very famous!!! I’ve seen it in sem exams, internals almost every where.I appreciate our ex PR(he is the roll no next to me) discussing loudly the two marks with nearby benchmates.I heard the bits and pieces of the answers discussed.Those answers were really very useful!!!!YOU CAN’T CALL IT COPYING WOULD YOU? I just heard them. 😀
