College is a place about which we’ve been dreaming since Class 8, ‘It’d be like this, it’d be like that’, the fascination just didn’t end. But now, it feels I was better off in Class 8, doing the daily homework, giving the weekly tests, playing cricket, watching TV and other things that a normal 8th grader does and I was happy.
But now, here we are running, running and running! Some are running after success, some are running after power, some after career, some after money, some are running because they have been doing so for a long time, some are running for fitness, some to catch their bus and some are just running pointlessly. I’m also running the race, no idea after what. But I do see a ray of light at the very end, I don’t know if it’s a ray of hope or the point of no return, but I have to find out and so I run. We’re all running behind something, but are we just doing it because everyone else is? What do we want? What do we feel like doing? It’s a big question in our lives and the only solution is to think with an open mind and a carefree attitude (not careless!).
It always feels good when we do something that we enjoy, so the mantra is simple ‘Run after something you like doing and not after something you don’t like’, what’s the point of being an engineer if you’re no good at it? Or being a doctor when you hate the smell of hospitals (it’s just weird, really!). So, in a nutshell, do what you feel like, what makes you happy and what makes you content. Opportunities are immense — you just have to choose the right one for yourself and success will follow. And why give up, because opportunities will come til the end.
