Only 6 more months :) :(

It's that time of the year again. Every body's scrambling for their books to study. The bright ones take it with casual ease, while the slackers struggle to cope with the massive syllabus. As my friends and everyone around me move with worried expressions and exam frenzy, i wonder whether they realize that the Mid-terms or the Quarterly Examination as we call it, marks the end of our last year in school. Only 6 more months to go for college or whatever plans we have after school. So I sat and thought about it. Do I really regret leaving school? I'm surprised at the answer i come up with. 12 years of education in the same school and i realize I WANT to go. Move on to bigger, better things. Not only that, these last two years leave a bitter taste in my mouth. They weren't exactly the 'fun filled years' that high school kids in other countries(or even cities, in my case) enjoy. They were mostly dreary, study-24x7-and-still-cant-get-a-good-grade years. And I've still got another 6 months to go.
But. Even with the relief that the end of school brings, college brings mixed feelings. Am I even ready to face the multi-cultural crowd out there? Am I talented enough? Can i cope with the stress? Will making friends be easy? And i don't even want to think about ragging. All in all, a very confused feeling. My friends seem to take it all for granted. They're so sure of themselves. But, I don't think that anything will be 'that easy'. Of course, there's the excitement of the whole thing. Living in a dorm, no parental supervision and all that. Even with all this, I'm still unsure of myself. No idea how it's all gonna work out. Maybe i should just hope for the best!

So, i guess the words 'Only 6 more months' have a very conflicted meaning!

hey there kiddo! i can understand what's going on in ur mind... yes agreed that there will be some amount of apprehension about what is waiting out there for you... but once u really get out and step into that situation, then u would feel that its not so bad after all.. u will in fact start to love that life... there is so much to learn out here... other than studying... so dump these thought aside and concentrate on your exams first...

Hi 16 year old. I just happened to read your blog and found it interesting. I think the school (as it is run) halves the fun...the school could be.
Anyhow...hope we bring about that change at school.

thanks shankar. i know this is kind of a late reply, but i'm not very regular with this stuff. And yeah, you're probably right. i mean, the way my school is run definitely cuts more than half the fun. So, i guess i'm with you in hoping for that change.

The Historian-A review

It was at a diner in a mall where I first heard of The Historian. I had gone out with my friends and was having dessert when i asked one of my friends to suggest a book. He's as fanatical about books as I am, albeit in a different way. He was a big fan of sci-fi books and he'd told me many other books that i loved reading. Anyway, he told me to read a book called The Historian. Typical, i thought. He was fond of books that blended history with mystery. I didnt think too badly of such books either. Besides, it had been sometime since i last read a book. So, the next day i went to the local library armed with a list of books, with The Historian topping the list. I wasn't too impressed by the cover when i saw the book. But then, i've always followed the adage 'Don't judge a book by it's cover' and i decided to get it. When i first started reading the book, i thought it was definitely going to be be something. It's the story of a young girl who found a …

Parents are spying on their kids-What the crap?

The age of computers. That's what they call our generation. With every home having a computer, one knows how to operate a PC before learning to read and write properly. So, it's quite obvious that kids know how to use a computer and inevitably, the internet. In such a situation, it's reasonable that parents should be concerned about the safety of their children. After all, there are a lot of harmful stuff on the net like viruses and stuff that can affect the computer and worse, even things that can harm a child mentally. I'm sure you all have heard about many children being kidnapped by a guy they met on the net. Chatting with unknown people, accidentally inducing viruses into the PC(or laptop), porn, etc. are a few of the many dangers of the virtual world we call 'the net'. But does all this warrant the measures which parents everywhere have taken?
Newspapers like Chennai Times actually advise parents on how to keep 'tabs' on kids!The nerve of them! And…
