FLASHBACKS- The Longest Semester Ever !!

[ This is a personal blog.. In case if you don't know me, you will not be able to relate..]
The fifth semester, just like all other semesters, came up with new people, some beautiful experiences and of course life lessons !!
Unlike my blog on the fourth sem, this is not divided into different phases..This comes up with all those things that made the fifth semester special, weird n beautiful, good n bad..I would simply write about all those things..one by one..

THE ULTIMATE DISCUSSION : The very first week of the semester,when we actually realized we are into the "third year", started with a damn serious topic and an endless discussion... MBA vs M Tech, placement vs post graduation, private jobs vs PSUs, scope vs interest and so on.. Every other person was talking about one n only one topic n that was 'future plans n career options'...I realized that I can actually become a career counselor, given that people easily get convinced n influenced by my style of talking,I would be great at it..Anyways, I was sick of that atmosphere, everyone around me was confused, worried and all those discussions led to more confusions..n then, thanks to a friend's advice, I decided to listen to my heart,to live in present and start with a new enthusiasm..The post Zendagi Migzara says it all..

THE BIRTHDAYS : This was the best part of the entire semester- the most beautiful days and the most unforgettable experiences.. I had really enjoyed Chinese food at Bercos n Fa Yian, hanging out with friends, celebrating n above all getting those gifts.. My 20th birthday was awesome.. All thanks to Richa, Radhika n Tanya for the greeting with those beautiful messages, to Lattu n Neha for that amazing poem, n of course to Kriti n Mehra for the bag :-)

THE RAINS : Delhites had witnessed the worst rainy season ever in 2010.. I still remember the way it used to be difficult to walk because of heavy rains, the way we used to be completely drenched even after carrying an umbrella..I still remember all those news reports about the river Yamuna's danger levels..n above all, those rumors "Kashmere Gate ISBT pe busein doob chuki hain, baadh aane wali hai,, ho sakta hai campus me chhutti declare ho jaye, ho sakta hai minors postpone ho jayen.."

COMMONWEALTH GAMES : Right from Suresh Kalmadi jokes to debates on corruption in India, right from the CWG interviews to the Closing Ceremony.. the first half of the 5th sem kinda revolved around CWG...Delhi had a makeover, so many student volunteers got a chance to work for it, a chance to attend the spectacular ceremonies...The best part was that it got great reviews and we all felt really happy n proud..but then, the worst part was that even though we had vacations, all our exams were postponed and the reason behind the title of this blog is nothing else but the commonwealth games..

POSTPONE, POSTPONE n POSTPONE : Every damn thing in this semester was postponed again n again.. We had to wait for so many days for a bloody five minutes' viva... Apoorvi's words after our practicals "Kitni jannaton ke baad hamare practicals khatm hue hain.." .. n today, it feels as if I had never felt so relieved in life ever before.. I find it hard to believe that this sem is finally over... Phew !!

A FEW THINGS THAT I REALIZED
  • I used to think a lot about my being tomboyish, I used to hate bimbos...and in this sem, I discovered my girlie side..I used to think a lot about it for no reason..My friend Shashank must be fed up of discussions about the same..Gradually I realized that it really does not matter, the words 'girlie' n 'tomboyish' are mere adjectives and I am what I am.. Some people like me for the way I am this sweet n sensible girl trying to help everyone around and some like my cool n crazy side..but the ones who really know me, like me for what I am, and thats what matters!
  • The most beautiful people are the ones who need you the most, for the greatest need in the world is the need to be needed.. Never let those people go, they matter the most!
  • For the first time, I saw groupism in IGIT..but even then,even to this day,I feel that I get along well with almost everyone..I like people around me and I have enjoyed every bit of my college life.. I had made some new friends in this semester, I had interacted a lot with some old friends too.. One must always welcome new people in life..Every person comes with a new charm into your life..
  • At times, you get angry with people who happen to be your closest friends..You feel that the other person does not devote time to you, or does not care for you as much as you do..This complacency, this misunderstanding can never come up if you understand each other..Trust the other person.. How can you forget all those moments when he/she had made you smile..Learn to accept ! Learn to understand and learn to forgive..
  • Faith is the most important virtue... You cant carry on any relationship without faith.. I have faith in people close to me, I have faith in my capabilities.. but I am still trying to figure out the aspect of having faith in God.. My Next Blog.. The Power of Faith.. Coming soon..
  • There are just two people in the whole world who will always be happier than you when you are happy..n they are your parents.. Once again, at the end of a semester, a promise to myself..One day, I'll make them feel proud..
  • I really don't understand the reason why people say friends must never thank each other and must never apologize.. You must always express what you feel, being expressive is important.. and therefore, I'm gonna dedicate a few messages to some people, for I couldn't have imagined this sem without them..

Nina : You are one of those people who love me the most, ultimately caring.. You're the best..
Shashank : Thanks for those hilarious, random and weird conversations..for sharing those awesome songs..Thanks for being the friend who knows me n understands me the best..Thanks for your words of wisdom, for making me laugh even in the worst of situations n the worst of my moods..Thanks for everything buddy!
Radhika : The person I texted the most, the person I talked to the most, throughout the semester..Enjoyed conversations with you..you are on of those few people i can talk bout anything at all..
Richa: We have a lot of things in common, right from our likes n dislikes to our opinions in case of most of our discussions..you are really cool...ek dum mast !!
Litsi n Neha : Dunno why, jus felt like writing your names together..Lattu the kidnapper n daku haseena, just one thing to say to you.. no matter how much we fight, no matter how much we tease each other, i'll be the same 'junglee' for you..
AC : When this semester started, I didn't know you at all, but now I know you n understand you really well.. You are an extremely emotional person,really crazy, n expressive like anything..You are a true person, you value your friends a lot AC, n I'm glad I'm one of those now !!
Prerna : Enjoyed hanging out with you buddy..Enjoyed celebrating our birthdays together..You are ultimately sweet n I really like the way you try to sort out things whenever we all fight..
Mehra : You are lively, bubbly n worldly wise at the same time.. Who the hell says engineers can't be stylish!! Whatever you do, you do it with an amazing style!!
Tanya : I am a fan of your Latkas n Jhatkas now... You are an awesome dancer and an amazingly lively person..
Pallavi : Enjoyed all those interesting and intelligent discussions with you...n hats off to your time management skills.. never seen such a workaholic person ever before! A sincere advice, take out some time n chill out in these vacations..
Kriti : I really like the way you take care of people around you, the way you love Chubby, the way you get excited n happy over small things, always enjoyed arguments n debates with you too.. he he
Priyanka : Xebec Non- Tech events will be rocking this year.. Good luck partner!!


A special message to all my school friends... Megha, Paro, Eshan, Aakriti, Kshipra, Menaka, Abhishek, Preeti, Mayank, Vrinda, Anubha..
No matter how much I hate that school, I really miss you guys, I miss Sharma Mam's double meaning statements, I miss KBC 3, I miss Madipur jokes, I miss Sharma Mam's hilarious classes.. I miss you all :( .. feel like writing a comedy note on Fb..


Well.. The blog ends here.. Overall, the fifth sem taught me to be bold and carefree and to be emotional and caring at the same time... It taught me the importance of being in the present. It taught me to be happy n peaceful even in the worst of the circumstances..

The end of the 5th semester is like a new beginning for me, with a new enthusiasm... 5 semesters gone, 3 more to go!! Lets see what life has to offer in future...
And I do believe that everything will be awesome.. Life is really sexy.. Enjoy !!


P.S.
1. Apologies if any names or things or anything at all is missing in this post.. Its all random.. Writing a semester blog is not easy as it may seem..
2. This had been an amazing semester for blogging... Visits all time high..
3. When I look back, I realize how foolish n immature I had been in my 4th sem.. I feel happy about whatever had happened in this sem.. No guilt, no regrets!!
4. 2011 has been great so far.. taking this as an omen.. hope this continues!!

Next blog soon!! Keep reading !!

Esther said...

I have bumped into your blog from Deepa Kashyap's! :)
I could relate a lot to what you've written about a few things that you've realized.
The best things what I liked in those points you've mentioned were :

The tomboyish and girlie side of you =) And the best part is when someone loves us for WHO we really are.

Its the best decision ever to make the parents feel proud of us at some point.

It is sooooo important to be EXPRESSIVE! =)
<3

Good luck <3
Keep writing.
