So, today (since it’s already past 12 here), in about 8 hours, I’ll be leaving for Pune, where I’ll be staying for the next 6 months for my internship.
I have such mixed feeling tonight. I just finished messaging my friends from college a goodbye and then sat back to think what this actually meant. It’s been roughly 2 and a half years since I got the notification of being accepted into VJTI for MCA at 1:30 am after waiting for the results all day. Though going into this college and for this course meant getting a decent job, I still don’t believe that tomorrow I will actually be starting with my first official job.
These two and a half years have changed me a lot. I have become more confident about decision making, done a lot of different activities that helped learning how the industry works so I hope actually working in a company won’t be a huge challenge and I wish to enjoy it as much as I can. My friends have also changed me, and still keep guiding me, showing me where I’m going wrong and are always there for me.
I’m the first person from my class to starts with the internship on 19th Dec and the first one shifting for it too so it’s sorta a big deal. What is a bigger deal for me is how soon time files. I barely got a 15 days vacation and most of the time went in shopping and getting all the stuff needed to move together. I’m still not completely done with the packing and it seems like an endless cycle and I’m pretty sure despite it all I’m going to forget something here. Luckily enough, Mumbai is about 3 hours away from Pune. So I am planning on returning here on weekends if possible.
I’m still pretty sad to leave my family and go to another place. Though I like cooking I’m not much of a quick cook who can make her meals in minutes. I am very lazy in that matter and I depend a lot on my mom for my food. Now I’ll have to cook for myself. I have to wash my clothes without a washing machine… again a first! And I don;t even know my roommates so well as of now. I’m not used to even sharing my room with anyone and I’m quite a loner person at home. I prefer to be left alone, with my books, PC and work, with no one to badger around me. So it all looks like one big adventure right now.
All in all, I hope this shifting helps me in growing a lot more as a person, to enjoy my work life and help me in becoming independent. Stay tuned for my Pune stories now. 😀
