Lessons Learnt

September 18, 2006

It’s been a few weeks since I started college. Obviously, it’s way different and I’m getting used to it. πŸ™‚ Meanwhile, I learnt (apart from acads):

1. However much a gel pen refuses to write, you do not blow into/out the refill. Chances are 9.9/10 that you’ll end up with a black mouth/lips/teeth and look like you’re obsessed with extreme gothic fashion. *feeling stupid*

2. Never attempt to multitask and manage mechanics notebook, bag, ice-cream and hair all together. Result? Yellow streaked hair and a butterscotch flavoured notebook. Soggy, I might add. *feeling extremely foolish*

3. The bathroom is used for various other reasons than for its own purpose. For giggly girls to meet up and comb their hair together (we need company, you know!), for girls/boys to hide in there and come out exactly when the cute guy/girl of their life is passing by (hello?!) and also to discuss gossip of utmost importance a.k.a why and what exactly that boy was talking to that girl or why that really pretty girl has to be a bitch. (d’oh!) *going WTF!*

4. Murphy’s Law actually works. Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. In accordance with this, any day you wear a white salwar kameez is the day it will pour cats-and-dogs, leaving you’re mum wondering where the brown salwar in the wash came from. *waaaah!*

5. Engineering graphics is not just about nice 2D and 3D shapes. It’s also about ruining your eyesight by seeking to measure out 1mm, 3mm, 5mm etc with a drafter. Whattay freakin’ PAIN! *irked*

6. Feesoeletic Yeffuct = Piezoelectric effect. *whattey accent, I say!*

7. There exist people who wear candy pink lipstick to college, deliberately make their hair messy and fling themselves at the seniors. They also believe it’s uber-cool and uber-sexy to be doing these things. *puke^infinity*

8. Orkut is a marvel. Oh well, to some extent at least. Now, I know some 20 people from my year who aren’t in my class/dept through orkut. It’s always, “Hey! You’re Suraksha right? I’m so-and-so…we scrapped on orkut, remember??!!” πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

9. You can be super-hawt, super-brainy and super-eloquent. Yes, I’m talking about one person. It takes work to be that, though. *pictures person…sigh*

10. It’s not every class that has cutey-cute guys. Some have majo pazhams only too. Like my class. *sigh…..*

Notwithstanding all of this, college’s been pretty fun so far. Made a great set of friends, so I guess that’s made it funner and all the more tolerable!! πŸ˜€ Classes are, obviously, not great. But I’m surviving. Optimistic senior souls tell me it’s not for long. πŸ˜›

Great friends, super icecream in canteen, big brother in same college – pretty neat scenario…only hope it gets better!

EDIT: For everyone’s benefit, NO I did not get ragged! πŸ˜› Yet. πŸ˜›

    but ED is alo about getting someone to do your drawings in exchange of ice-creams perhaps..

    pens are just meant to be used in exams.. how do you think the one running the photocopies shop gonna survive if you start taking notes..

    and if u did not get ragged you are missing something..

    Dei, you dont sepak about svce not being fun and stuff. When you were leaving college, your blog was dripping with valiyura posts on how svce was the most amazing place you had been till date… If anyone has a right to bitch about SVCE then its me…

    Machan your whole batch was one gotala batch. Imagine Mario, came to college to meet all the profs. cauze he got a day off at Seimens…

    Ouch! I said the name. But hey suraksha, Abhi wont know that Mario and “THE GUY” are the same people… so dont worry.

  23. September 21, 2006 6:57 PM

    @sagaro bhaiya:
    it would be wonderful if you kept you BIG MOUTH a little shut. thank you. 😐

    and sagaro, i loved svce but i hear its getting crappier by the day. thts why i was surprised..

    with the new rules and all..
    and why do u need to crib?

  26. Hellbrandt Grimm permalink
    September 22, 2006 12:18 AM here’s where the SVCE-bashing is done. But I’m not even going to bother contributing to this. Y’all will get so depressed that you’ll run off to the Himalayas and stupidly die of cough and cold.

    No. No kidding. I can’t see myself cracking the scene anymore in this place. Newbies (or nOObs if you prefer) might not yet have gotten the big picture. I really pity the moment “the stark reality” crashes on their heads like a five-thousand-pound truck (give or take four thousand five hundred) one boring Material Sciences class.

  27. September 22, 2006 6:48 AM

    the guy a?? what the! i thought A guy looked cute. thassal. period. :O if it was THE guy, i’d have told you doofus!! :O

    oh, shut it!! :O i did NOT like mario…just thought he was goodlooking and spoke well. hmpf!

    and svce’s getting crappier?? seems okay to me…but then, i’m new. πŸ˜›

    erm…you just made me feel loads better about life. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜›

    It’s also about ruining your eyesight by seeking to measure out 1mm, 3mm, 5mm etc with a drafter.

    Do that everyday and you’re an arch student!!
