College life draws to an end

Yesterday was the last official day of my college. Now I’ll be going for my exams in the 2nd week of November and after that college will be over, for real.

College Friends!

College Friends!

I’ve been feeling down over this for the last couple of days, wondering where I would be next year in October, will I ever get such relaxed time of life again, and is it really the end of my student life? I know that once I join my office, I won’t get time for myself, no care free days, no time to just lie in the bed till 10 am as I do after bunking a class! On top of that, I’m really gonna miss my friends. Over the years from school to under graduation college to post graduation college, I have lost contact of most of the friends and now this may be the last set of real friends I’ll ever make or get to bond so much. And I’m not really ready for goodbye…

To celebrate our last day together, my friends and I decided to go for a lunch party at a fast food joint, Gurukripa. My friends love the Chole Bhature dish there! You can see the dish below πŸ˜›

After my exams end, it’s not only goodbye for college, but also to my home, since I’ll be shifting to Pune for my internship. Though I’m excited of the new change, I wonder if my home will feel the same when I come home on holidays! I have never been away from my family in the 23 years for more than a couple of days and those couple of days had me calling my parents at least twice a day. I’m not shifting to a very far away city (just over 2 hours drive from Mumbai), but it still feels daunting!

Talking about holidays, my short Diwali vacation has began (Diwali vacation plus a Preparation leave for exams, this one is :P) and like we usually do, even this year my family has planned a short vacation for a couple of days. It again may be our last vacation in Diwali since my sister has also started with her college life and getting holidays for her is even more difficult that me, as she is constantly running from college to competitive exam classes to her Japanese Language class! I hope we enjoy this vacation!

And tell me about you all, what did you feel when your student life ended? How did it feel to move out?Β 

Happy Diwali to you all people! πŸ˜€



  1. You’re almost there. Congratulations!

  2. It must surely be a big deal and a huge move to be moving away from your family. I still live with my family because I was able to make the commute to and from work. I imagine you are really close with your family though and you will miss them – for some people it is because they actually fear independence. But I think you might just be worried you’ll get lonely. And that’s normal. πŸ™‚

    You will definitely miss your friends but you just have to make sure you keep in touch with them! I only see my best friend every now and then but we are still really close.

  3. The first couple years after graduating, I missed the social life from college. I didn’t miss the work or classes though. In fact, I found that I had way more free time since I didn’t have to worry about homework or projects. Working life is different, but I do enjoy it more than being in school!

    It may be scary to move away from home at first, but I felt it was pretty freeing. I liked the independence that came with it, even if it meant more work and responsibility πŸ™‚ Seeing friends has been more difficult, since we aren’t just hanging out at school anymore. However, I feel that is largely my fault for being lazy about scheduling get togethers. We still keep in touch online at least!

    I hope you’re having a fun vacation! Congrats on graduating!

  4. I’m sure I’ll be feeling the same way as you in 2 years time, but with my placement year well underway now I’ve actually liked the work-life routine because I feel like I’ve adapted my life really well with it. I’m sure you will too!

  5. Congratulations on reaching the end of your college life! I’m living that “full-time job” life right now and keep on wishing that I’d have more free time for myself. Good luck with your internship. Even though you’d be away from your family for the first time, you’ll gain a lot of independence experience :). Hope you’re having fun with your Diwali vacation!

    I have problems finding time to spend with my college friends. I usually end up turning down the offer because I’d be busy (or tired). Definitely do try to keep in touch with your friends, though πŸ™‚
