“Are You Single?” …”Ah…I wish”.
“Are YOU married?” “Yes…”
“Hey, are you engaged?” …”Uh – well its complicated. “
….”And hey what about you? Any chances of making us happy?” ….
“well, No. Not yet. I like being single” :)
Hmmmm… “So who misses University days?”
And they all Hail in Union. “AH … I MISS IT ALOT!”
Who doesnt, han? :) I mean, I know we wanted to get out of their like prisoners wish to escape hell, But friends, who knew we would miss that jail on the Jail road later on? I know why- Because they were the best days of our lives.
Same old class mates, same old ways…same old questions, but now when you bump into them so randomly at your Facebook . you realize, Their way of looking at life is now entirely different.
To begin with – they take life more seriously now. or should I put it bluntly. Life has put them under serious radar. :)
2: The family drama is no longer avoidable. University is no longer there to provide emergency escape. You can’t tell your parents, “Oh well – i have this very urgent assignement you see. I have to finish it by midnight – so if you please can excuse me from this family counselling.”
Nor Can you emotional blackmail them. “That’s it. I’m quitting studies. See – you have totally ruined my concentration , now I can’t study with all of your marriage nonsense , Mother. puhleese”
3. Most importantly, You have simply no excuse or reason to enter yourself in STUDENT competitions. Which pisses me off very frequently now. its like all the organizations decided to hold competitions right at the time when I passed out from my university. Dammit.
You can’t hangout alot, You can’t bunk on your family issues, You can’t call yourself a Student, and worse you feel this constant force to earn good for the sake of — well, whatever the reasons maybe.
Its different story for everyone BUT with the same result. We all wish to go back to university and relive those days.
I Think, my friend. It wouldn’t be wrong to say… University was our “Fire exit”. If so… Then what a mind-boggling fire exit it was.
