My initial days of college have been rather excruciating where I struggled almost every single day to find myself a place in the good books of my teachers and failed terribly. I was then pursuing an undergraduate in computer science and had to rack my brain over mind-numbing programmings and codings. Most of my time elapsed in nailing these hardcore subjects and I could hardly get any time for self-development.
I could never get spare time to work on myself and enjoy myself. The schedule used to be so hectic that I lost myself among the dusty books and scattered bare pages. I barely could read a book apart from the core books that I was suggested for academic betterment. I pursued no hobbies, hardly went out to celebrate with friends and was rather conserved which could be perceived as an insipid life. The life that I lead was more of a monotonous and hectic schedule with no adventure in it.
On the other hand, my classmates had a completely different life that I longed for during my college days. They had stories to tell and regale people around them. They had anecdotes which never ended and perhaps a life that was being carried out either in the pretention or in ignorance. I indeed was materially and emotionally equipped but I always missed the life they were leading then.
I used to stay busy with the codings while my friends loitered around holding hands and skipping lectures and bunking classes. They used to hit the internet to socialize with the girls while I was busy looking for free online XLM to JSON converter on the internet.
The monotony that I suffered my entire college days was rather depressing and killed the carefree guy residing inside me. I now was more into flipping pages than scrolling down the Facebook profiles. I stalked teachers more than Facebook profiles.
And as far as my being good in studies is concerned, I indeed was a good student though I struggled with the hard to assimilate concepts.
But the rise of the internet made it a cakewalk for me and the likes. I now could go on the internet and look for free online XML to JSON converter just in case I ever found myself stuck with the dry runs on the pages.
Its good to be boring
I do regret being so conserved and introvert during my college days but it indeed bore me the fruit. I got placed in the world’s top IT Company that not only pays me well but also keeps my needs on the top of their lists. It’s good to be conservative sometimes as it unfolds the possibilities and prospects to proceed in life.
I know I have missed a lot while I was in the college but I will never regret attending the lectures instead of bunking classes and loitering aimlessly in the corridors with nothing but deep disappointment on their faces which still lingers.
I would suggest the readers sacrifice the transitory happiness and indulge yourself in the pursuits of eternity and invest in yourself accordingly.
