Back to normalcy; back to normal-length nails, normal meal times, and most importantly, back to inhaling after exhaling. Admissions at DU are at a close and most of us have grabbed seats. Many of us have humbly accepted our personal victories, gotten our college and course preference while others may not have got the perfect combination but at least the best they could get, rather the best the system was willing to give them.

I got English (hons) at Hindu and yes I’m immensely satisfied. I look forward to my first day at college and hopefully my batchmates will be interesting enough to provide constant incentive for me to make the commute from south Delhi to North Campus daily. I’ve observed my friends who are in DU and I know for a fact they are anything but regular to college. For me, that is only the more encouraging —monotony gets to me very easily. Somewhere in the back of my head I’m almost sure I’ll be missing classes held on weekends and wasting hours at the gaming plaza at Kamla Nagar market. Having gotten admission, it’s naturally more comfortable now to talk about the nice things we’re expecting from our college lives, hence the shamelessness.

It’s said college is the place where you can rebuild your image and attitude, the place we really become the people we’re going to be for the rest of our lives. Having said that I think we should all open ourselves to the idea of letting our college add to our character and broaden our perspectives rather than just coming to college, studying and going home-it’s something to be experienced.
