Confidence Marginalized

The campus bears a deserted look. Its not just today but it has been the same this entire week. Exams really have this superb capability to psyche out students. And its no different in a B school as well.Every one of us are busy cramming for the mid-terms which happen to be tomorrow and the day after. Now the interesting question for many of you would be "What the **** are you doing writing a blog instead of studying?" Well the answer lies in a new statistic with which I have decided to measure my performance - its called the top 75%.

Even a week back I was of the idea that even though grades are not super important I would try to remain above or around the average.But slowly with the asignment marks coming in and the reality of preparations sinking in, I felt the need of a new statistic - a new benchmark I can aim for....and now having settled on it I feel much more relaxed.

Classes are so much fun these days. With everyone studying till late in the night,sleeping in class with varying degrees of shamelessness is the order of the day. There are some who doze off every now and then and wake up, look at the professor and around to figure out that all is well and again start dozing. Then there are some who keep dozing in oblivion, irrespective of whether the prof is looking or not.And finally there are people who doze for a while, feel they have been sleeping for a while and start contributing in class as if they had been listening intensely all along. Whatever it is its real fun to watch. Although I belong to the first category, I do sometimes take some time off my dozing schedule to look around :D

Another favourite comment going around campus is "Arey You are the potential dean's lister"(Read top 10% of class). I dont know but saying this phrase probably makes some of us feel better...or maybe its the response to this statement that makes them feel better. Anyways dont know..dont care....thankfully people have not thought so highly of me and I have been spared of this torture till now.

Today SD sent me a mail with the pictures of 3 bottles of Chivas Regal and saying waiting for saturday ...Felt soo good. Even though I am not a great fan of Chivas Regal, the sight of those bottles and the image of saturday nite post midterms...aaaaahhhhhhhh...bonne humeur
