Tum: Hey, you look a bit disappointed.
Hum: Yeah, i am feeling a bit down.
Tum: Why?
Hum: Even though i too had graduated, i didn’t get any comments on facebook saying congrats, unlike you.
Tum: Yeah, I know that’s so sad. That’s so gender based complimentation. sab theek ho jayega.
Hum: Eureka! I got it.
Tum: What?
Hum: I think i have got the reason behind this facebook trend.
Tum: What?
Hum: I believe we congratulate you because in the first place we don’t rate you smart enough to graduate and when you do so, we frankly admit that you are not as bad as we thought and hence the compliment.
Tum: What the hell!
Hum: Yeah, I know that’s so sad. That’s so gender based complimentation. sab theek ho jayega.
Hum: By the way, congrats!
Tum: Why?
Hum: Because you have graduated.
Tum: What the hell! I wanna go home.
Hum: It was nice having this conversation. You changed my mood. Bye.

parting thoughts

Reading Time: 1

The longer i stay here, the longer i want to stay here. But as they say, the ‘good times’ don’t last forever, because if they did, we would stop calling them as ‘good times’. So, it’s time to move on with my life and get out of my comforting and calming world and face the challenges in ‘real world’ as elders would say. Although, we all had in the past experienced similar feelings when we had to part with our high school friends or hostel-mates, we are still feeling nostalgic about it again. It appears that with increasing age, we also experience increasing reluctance to change in our lifestyles. Perhaps this is the reason why elder persons are skeptical in using current technological innovations and then, we blame them for not being adaptive.

The more i think about it, the harder it becomes to say goodbye. But as the journey had to stop somewhere, someday and that day has arrived, so its time to say goodbye to my college life. I don’t know if they shall be the best 4 years of my life, but i definitely know that i did have 4 years of my life which i shall recall with fondness, in which i had my fair share of memorable moments with my weird but unique friends.

Ah! I shall miss this rain.

Extension of April Fools’ Day

Reading Time: 1

Date: 2nd April
Time: 9:00 am
Venue: An ABC college

Professor: Why didn’t you come to the class yesterday?
Student: Sir, it’s not my fault. Yesterday, one of my classmates fooled me by saying that yesterday’s class was cancelled. Later in the evening, he conveyed to me while chatting that he was making me an April fool. He also added ‘colon P’ to emphasize his cool sense of humor.
Professor: hmm… send him to my office today.

Moral of the story: April Fool’s day can even be extended to the next day.
