Time is relative. It seems a while ago I entered this college, and my second semesters are almost at their end!
Inbetween 8-4 classes time passed, somehow. College life is fun, it evokes a sense of achievement, for it is the result of two years of toil. And that’s exactly the reason that fuels your laziness and excuses.
College gives you an opportunity to rewrite your academic and social life. The new layout of life is totally a voluntary choice decided by your principles, passion and priorities.
For the whole first semester and half of second enjoying life was my priority . (I trust your smartness to decipher how my life has been 😉 )
Now with exams nearby priorities have reshuffled for sure!
I have two roomies- R and P, and believe me, life is hell of fun with them. Aaket is having his final exams and he will be leaving Delhi by end of this month.I have succesfully learnt to the ‘art of becoming owl’, at the same time I go on morning walks too. (Highly Recommended!)
The question came as a shock. We were done with our tutorial session on Carbohydrate Metabolism and sat flipping through the volume of book. And all of sudden our teacher, a senior resident, spoke.
This was not our first encounter with the question. We were greeted with the same question very first day,but today, two month later, some answers had changed!
There was a boy who daily regretted letting go his seat in IIT. (IIT is the most prestigious engineering college in India.)
One among us, if given chance to rewrite his life, would have definitely opted commerce. Not that medical syllabus doesn’t interest him, but life would have been must easier, he reasoned.
And there were ones who aspired to take Science and out of Medical and Engineering , the two most sought options, they decided the former.
I took a deep breath and reflected on my own decision. To be honest, Life as medical student is not that great ( it’s never going to be that fancy college life) but I know, with it’s ups and downs, it’s going to be a great journey and I am really hopeful for it.
(Someday I will definitely write an in-depth post regarding my medical life!)
