End of a joyride called college!

How many times have you woken up and cursed the college simply because it exists and you need to go there to attend those blasted classes?!And how many times have you secretly wished that a lecturer would fall ill or something so that you could have a class off? I have probably done it all through the four years of my engineering. But alongside, i have also looked forward to meeting up with friends in college, catching up on the latest college gossip, the bunking and going loafing. It is as if, there are two separate worlds inside those college gates- one, outside the classroom and one inside!

Well, yesterday was the last day that i got to spend in the class, during the photo session. Amidst taking pictures and signing autographs, we also made sure we left our mark in the class. The beam in the center of our classroom, all brightly whitewashed, now sports a message-"8th CS-A 05-09 was here", just like the one in Shawshank Redemption.

I had always imagined that i would be all teary eyed and sappy on the last day. However, it was not to be, what with all the PJs being cracked and the smiling for the pictures. I was extra happy since we had wrapped up the project only the previous day!
With the project also over, it is as if there is nothing more to do for now!( i have blocked out exam preparation entirely out of my mind, as of now) It all just adds up to the empty feeling that i have when i wake up these days( of course, half the empty feeling is because Sony Max has some bad movie playing at 8 since monday)! To top it, there are neighbors who see me at home all the time and keep asking me-" college ilva?", "college mugitha?". Howdu! College mugithu. And i am not exhilarated about it. The four years seem to have passed in a jiffy and have left me wanting more! And in a matter of a few days, the exams will also be over and it will be THE end of my college life! I am going to miss all my friends, the juice center,the steps, the parking lot, the placement cell and all the fun i have had in college. One big regret is that i can't seem to recollect which was the last class that i bunked :(. After all, i won't get to do it anymore!!


  1. Yes, thats true. I miss JC even after two years. :-(

  2. Yes ..we are going to miss our student life :(
    All those sweet experiences will remain in our memories forever:)And My hand writing will remain in EV-005 walls untill next painiting:)

  3. awwww...that's how I felt on the last day of school...that empty feeling.. that feeling of something missing from the normal routine sucks! but don be all sad.. there are so many more things to look forward to! :) cheer up!

  4. @ Jyothi
    Yeah! I too will be saying the same thing two years from now, for sure :)

    @ Chethan
    Next round of painting may not happen anytime soon. Your writing is going to remain there for another few years at least ;)

    I know! I am already looking forward to work and a new set of people there! But i am sure that it nothing can beat college when it comes to having fun!

  5. Was that inspired by the scene in "shwashank redemption" !!!!

    anyhow I too miss JC especially CS :P

  6. Yepp. Like i already mentioned, Shawshank Redemption's "Brooks was here" message inspired this :)
