Four years down

And i'm older,wiser,proudly parading about with my graduate status and readily obliging to spill some of this accumulated enlightenment.

College has been a series of cup-of-life-runneth-over-type experiences-from the crazy impromptu trips to the quiet reading in the room, from the screaming jumping rock concerts to the more sober evenings. I devoured books, frowning over pages of literature and philosophy. I discovered and rediscovered music- I met some brilliant musicians who introduced me to some brilliant musicians. I climbed hills. Everything just flowed freely.There was an appealing rawness about life.

I came across some incredibly talented people, some extremely nice people and some crazy people. Some have been constant,steady and steadying.Some swept me off my feet, some put me back firmly on the ground. Everyone I met had a role to play that, on looking back, seemed to fit in place.

Here, all our lives did hotchpotchedly intersect.

Now grown ups, and being expected to behave so, we will, as the little prince says, busy ourselves with matters of greater consequence.

nothing is so much of a greater consequence until you make it out to be. if anything, behaving as grown ups for being "expected" to behave is the least grown up thing one can do, unless you haven't truly grown up.

cheers anyways.

p.s. a snip here, a cut there, n this would have made a poem, but i'm happy u wrote it in prose! :)

very few words to describe such a vast experience... I miss VIT once I got out of there and all that you do in college when you look back as a 'grown up' will be the best days of your lives...

Lovely. Congrats on finishing college... I guess as nostalgic as it is, life is so much of a movie that if you're aware of that, it never stops taking your breath away.

you had an enviable college life. full in every way. and you describe it wonderfully. dont be worried about being grown up just yet. you still have many student years left.
