College Life


College Life..!!
Some says it's the best time of your life, 
Some says, this is the time to enjoy,
Some says  this is the time to build your future,
But I say this is the time when you really get to know yourself...


I don't intend to write a nostalgic post about it, though I planned to write a fully nostalgic one but that one was intended for sometime in 2012. And right now I am too inspired to write about college days after watching a video made by my college friends. It's not your pro or something but it does makes a connection.


The video named 'A Line' tells us a story of a random guy and what all goes in his mind on the last day in his college




Though all you professionals sitting there may not be at all impressed by its quality. but knowing that this comes from a person who has never tried it before means a lot and the emotions it carry makes up for the quality. I am thoroughly impressed by this and it makes me realize as every second passes I am getting closer to my last day in college and I really trembles by mere thought of it. But there is not much one can do about it. It's inevitable and would come whenever it is destined to.


Dr. Seuss words perfectly matches these emotions - 

How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon.
December is here before it's June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?

Coming back to the video, it asks a real nice questions at the end, "Is it the beginning or the end...?"
Well to answer this question, I would like to quote Ivy Baker Priest, 
'The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning'.


We don't know what awaits us outside the college gates, is it something that would make all those exams worthwhile or something that would make us question our very reason of existence. But whatever it is, no one knows and nobody would know before the time and that is when one would cross 'The Line".
And till that time comes live your life as in the words of David Wood,


College is the best time of your life.  When else are your parents going to spend several thousand dollars a year just for you to go to a strange town and get drunk every night?
