It's that time of the year again...

Another goodbye post! And this time, it's a biiiig goodbye...

Goodbye to college life. To life as a student. To life where you could still afford to be careless, dependent, childish.

Sigh, 4 years gone by in a flash! I can still remember how my major enthusiasm to come to Singapore (only besides the course) was to live in a hostel! (Lame as it sounds, it's true!) And I've enjoyed it every bit. It's here that I saw who I really am, and it's here that I got to know what my priorities in life are!

I'll miss the campus like crazy. The weird canteens, the roads, the moon obsession, my 4th year room whose window I would sit at if bored, the cluttered cork board, the regular trips to the library and the wonderful minutes spent just staring at the books, the movies on LAN, the innumerable FRIENDS episodes, the long walks, the brown benches where I spent half of my school life in meetings, oh, I could go on and on!

It's such a weird feeling, as I realize this is the last blog post from campus. There are so many "lasts", and I'm trying desperately not to simply think too much of them. Ah, it's ok, everything good has to come to an end - because it has to give way to something better!

And with hope in my heart, I step out to the 'real world', and hope it's not too bad. Now it's time for a walk across my favourite stretch.
Goodbye, to my lovely other home.

P.S.: Chennai, here I come!

When a person bids good bye to something so many times.... we can understand that he/she is affected to that so much and misses that very badly :)

Is that true for ur case also vani??

>>And with hope in my heart, I step out to the 'real world', and hope it's not too bad

With your attitude, even difficult paths shud become a cake walk for u..so no worries :)

it seems that even the best of us reminisce about times gone past once in a while .... especially the time we spent in school .... unfortunately the only image i can conjure up of that period reminds me of an over-weight, clumsy kid with self-confidence issues .... glad to see that nothing has changed much on my side ... anyway let me welcome you to the world of cold, hard reality where you trust no-one and you never turn your back .... awww, i am just kidding .... soo when is the treat .... i could settle for a cup of coffee ....*grin* ....

(p.s. subra, i have heard of moonwalk and a walk in the park but cakewalk .... how do u manage to come up with such analogies ??? ..*grin*..)

Hope you will be coming up with some refreshing ideas to clean the Chennai's ever-lasting problems (right from traffic snarls to corruption at every level...)

@ dante :

The term "cakewalk" is often used to indicate something that is very easy or effortless. Though the dance itself could be physically demanding, it was generally considered a fun, recreational pastime. The phrase "takes the cake" also comes from this practice (From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cakewalk)

Life is also like that...even though it is demanding, when we face it with spirit, enthusiasm and loads of attitude, it shud be fun living out here :)

Thatz the wish to Vani :)
