I ran into one of my friends from my PU college and she told me that I’d changed a lot. I didn’t realize it then because I was just feeling myself but then when I thought about it, I know that she’s right.
When I was in PU, I was a totally different person. I was shy because I didn’t like the way people looked at me, like I had a tail or something. I didn’t dare approach people by myself. I was quiet. I never spoke to anyone outside my class, or sometimes, out of my small group of seven girls. Maybe it was the age or something, but everyone had the unnecessary need to be loud all the effing time! But even then I went to every single function/program/fest ever held, in order to “participate”.
Maybe it was the drastic change that took over from being a school kid, wearing two plaits with red ribbons to wearing a kurti ALL THE TIME. And the fact that I had studied in the same school for 13 years didn’t help things.
Coming to St. Joseph’s was another drastic, or rather, radical change for me. I discovered and explored so much! People didn’t look at me like I was some alien or something. I didn’t need to fit in. I learned to accept people for the way they are and not be judgemental. I have met so many rare and peculiar people (professors, included) and I can’t still wrap it around my head that I’m in my second year of college! One last year to go, and I’ll be leaving. I’ll be very sad.
Needless to say, I met my soulmates and friends here. You know who you are 😉
You guys are amazing! Let’s keep rocking!
