and so is me :). Had a chat with freshie last night and while I was on the bed (trying to sleep) figured out how much I've changed. So here it goes... things which I think have changed from my 1st year to 4th year.
Then: How can I forget having separate notebooks for all the subjects, and how much I cared for them. Attended most of the lectures and wrote notes (though in the end always used notes of somebody else :) but still I was sincere enough to have my own :) )
Now: Acted little intelligently and bought a single notebook (and use money for xeroxes :) ) and had a thought that if needed will get another one. But thing is even that single notebook was divided into 6 partitions and in a single guss I can say about 90% of the pages are empty and rest 10% are utilised in writing the dates of the lectures I attended.
Then: I used to study for surprise quizzes. Yes, yes I used to study just in the anticipation of exams the other day and I seriously hate those Prof. who declared 25% weightage for surprise exams. Had to attend all classed plus read stuff every single time (ok most of the time ...OK some of the times :) )
Now: All exams are as good as surprise exams. No preparations for even the announced ones. I don't know why this attitude has changed but when its clear that a single 5 mark quiz can't even touch the castle I've built in years leave aside even threatening it so why worry :)
Then: Should crack all the exams. Should at least pass-out with a gold medal, ok if not gold then at least a silver
Now:" Bas pass hoo jau yaar" you can hear this slogan from every single 4th yearite around and am no different. To hell with grades just give me a DD and kick my ass out of here.
4) Taste of movies:
Then: Yes I was one of those who'd cry after every Raj Kumar Santoshi movie and would criticize the scenes when hero doesn't get hurt even when attacked with 50 machine guns and finishes everybody with just a pistol in hand.
Now: Sometime in third year the taste was more towards educational content but now its back to normal and I still cry watching the climax of Anand, the convocation in Black and lots of time during Baghban and Avatar.
[On some other thoughts ...Hema Malini, Rekha ...salaa kuch bhi bolo aaj bhi maintained hai :P]
n) Idea of first date :)
Then: OK this may sound funny. But I always wanted her to say "I Love you" at least a few hundred times.
Now: Have a wonderful evening... no santap (sentimental thoughts) in between... just before we are about to say good-bye... get few tears on those sweet cheeks (won't mind if she uses glycerin...yah I know its tough to cry when am around :) and hug me :) and say "I hate you" "I hate you" "I hate you" ... and may be ...
(yah i know its sounds like climax of Yash Raj Films but I'd love it)
[All those girls reading this ...its still an idea ...u know what you got to do hurry up offer closes on 30th Feb midnight...:)]
For all those who have noticed the "n", in simple words the list is too long to list in a single sitting. Will continue as thoughts come along. There are lots and lots of things like dressing sense, sense of humor, kind and number of friends which I think is changed in everybody life so "not to mention".
There is a even longer list of things which haven't changed... will collect those thoughts soon ...for now IPR exam coming up ...(yah this is one of those things which haven't changed ...I mug before endsems :) )
