While some of us might end up with the perfect Friends squad, the Edward Cullen boyfriend, a Great Gatsby job that will pay (in a few years) for a week with your glittering partner in the Bahamas or “God’s Calling” toward a Noble Prize for Peace – to migrate, quantum pencil – chair – self, to another city and “survive” there till you’ve served your purpose; is challenging. This is not to say that all the “trouble” isn’t worth it; you, kind of, get the hint of the life portrayed in movies like Bling Ring, or How to be Single. Yet, it’s more pragmatic to know what you’d be dealing with as soon as you’ll be in the “real world” ….
Those of you, who have decided to fight hook and nook for it and would do so, all the very best. Those you, who are still in the two boats of indecision, and think you are too weak to stomach the change … well –
THE INEVITABLE 1 – Getting out of Home Sweet Hell!
After you are done drooling over your A – Grade mark-sheet of High School Exams, and attending your graduation party, you’ll get down to the first inevitable:
If they mean “Get out of the house”, then you are halfway into the wilderness. If no, then don’t worry. Just lash out unfair, mean and justified.
That should do the trick!
THE INEVITABLE 2 – Cut! And Pack Up.
THE INEVITABLE 3 – Dealing with the domestic EmoS !
emotional “you” –
and the emotional “them” (too many to categorize) –
THE INEVITABLE 4 – Stomping about the new city.
THE INEVITABLE 5 – Settling down (uncritically) into the whole new world!
THE INEVITABLE 6 – Settling down (critically) into the whole new world!
You’ll meet a lot of people: room – mates with physical and mental problems, lousy landlords / landladies, mean and helpful seniors, meaner classmates with whom you have to spend the next few years, scary and brilliant teachers and a land that has poison for food.
THE INEVITABLE 7 – The roller coaster called “College”.
THE INEVITABLE 8 – Positive vibes: good cafes, good friends, some “guardian angel” seniors …
THE INEVITABLE 9 – Greener pastures!
But the sad part is, mostly they are “hand me over”s , or you are simply another re – bound mission.
THE INEVITABLE 10 – When monotony sets in with a “Why am I here for, exactly?”, a string of self – justification follows …
THE INEVITABLE 11 – Complaining to anyone won’t help!
THE INEVITABLE 12 – Deciding to have “some” fun on your own –
You end up having too much fun anyway before the semester exams –
THE INEVITABLE 13 – The night before exams, you stalk (online) the “losers trapped at home”, conceited that they are leading a more miserable existence.
But they are like –
And poor you!
THE INEVITABLE 14 – End of the semester.
THE INEVITABLE 15 – Holidays and the “iite/ian” changes in the Home Front.
THE INEVITABLE 16 – Semester results.
THE INEVITABLE 17 – Regrets over undelivered bargains.
THE INEVITABLE 18 – Going back again!
THE INEVITABLE 19 – You have to go, anyway!
THE INEVITABLE 20 – The silver linings!
MAKE OF THIS WHAT YOU WILL !!!
