I was excited when I started with my school. Play-way to high school. High school to senior secondary; it all just flew and swirled with time. With senior secondary and schooling coming to an end we saw a lot of turns that life took. The dusk of these formative years marked sweet and sour memories, bitter-sweet goodbye’s. Those were probably the most awaited goodbye’s ever. Leaving the school uniforms and braids behind, we embraced the glossy college life. *Major Transition Number 1*
We wanted to explore life beyond our periphery and college provided the platform. Friends, left behind; some took the same road and some new, waited with smiling faces. The first 365 days of college made a rushing sound accompanied by the endless chatter, class bunks and sweet proposal-rejection memories.
With Second year, we gained sense about how it feels to be called a senior. Of course, when you’ve spent a complete year in an institution you’re bound to feel that way. The college became a place we knew more about than the new batch.
Next, The third year made us realize the real reason behind, us being here..in this space. STUDY!! Backlogs created mayhem. They were all-over, every semester and this was the time when we started becoming conscious about the Bachelor’s degree. With slogging to clear the backlogs, the third year of Engineering went by too.
FOURTH AND THE FINAL YEAR!! This is when we wanted the time to stop. With realizations of starting a new responsible life; come these..pangs of fear..of letting go..!! This is the year which prepared us to go out and fight the real professional, financial, emotional and the mental battle. This year prepared us for SURVIVAL!!
These four years..four most important years of my life just passed by.. Just like that. It was just like writing a short 500 word article.. So quick.. so abrupt..!! Today it feels like.. I was running a marathon and didn’t care to catch my breath through all of it.
A few days left!! These goodbye’s will change everything about us and our existence. *MAJOR TRANSITION NUMBER 2*
This is a period where I’m saying goodbye again. The differences these 4 years made to my life can never be retraced. These memories will never will recreated. There will never be more bunks. There won’t be more day-outs. Our benches will get new occupants but our lives won’t get new memories of this college zest that we’re leaving behind.
With a heart, we’re all again saying goodbye and again embracing what’s a ahead.
Time flies and Life Goes on.
