Doing Nothing

When I close my eyes, I can literally relive the hectic pace at ISB...the cacophony, the friends, the deadlines, the exams, the club activities - everything just whizzes past like one super fast train. And then I open my eyes and the reality strikes. I really dont have anything to do the whole day apart from enjoying the delicacies that mom is dishing out and the unbearable 40+ degree heat that mother nature dishing out. I talk to my friends and the same withdrawal symptoms are evident to all. It is just but natural I guess.

The O week at ISB was a lot of fun. But the last day was really sad and painful. I mean that was the time it really really struck me that the campus will not be ours anymore. A new bunch of guys will take it over and make it a year of their life. Anyways I tried to drink my way out of the senti mood and things just got worse on 18th night. I cried in public and I don't even remember the countless guys who tried to console me that night. Bottomline I had a blast the entire year and made some of the best frinds ever and I miss them all [sigh sigh sigh]. It feels nice to read your own posts to relive your own experiences. I felt that life has come a full circle when I read my own post " Orientation week ends at ISB" of last year.

I met some really interesting(and beautiful) people at ISB from the current batch. People unsure about what to expect from ISB, people confused about career options, people just plain simply overawed at life in general at ISB. My only advice to them was to just enjoy life and make some friends for life and everything else would fall into place. I am sure everyone of you will do just fine. And if any of you need any gyaan just reach out to me and I would be happy to help.

Hi Nandan,

Thanks for your comments. Yaa it was really a emotional ride and the whole purpose of the blog was to share my experiences as well as relive the past. I myself read it and it feels real nice...

Anyways I intend to continue blogging as I start on a new chapter - work. And enjoy your year at ISB.
