I’m here after such a long time that I feel like being stupid. Blogging is something I should have started earlier. Well what I’m sharing now is something that I had to get out.
Now a day, we are in final semester of our so called MBA, these one and a half year are gone just like that and now we are all set to become the Professionals. All I see around me are people worrying about getting jobs; getting placement is all I can feel is on their mind. And those who are already placed are even more worried, either to get out of it and leave it or get a new one. First, there was this struggle to get into a B-School then there’s the tension for placement. So is it really worth it, all that worrying and tension to get a job, ultimately which will result in even more worries and tension.
I’m not saying that we should not at all try to get a job. All that I want to say is that we should enjoy the college life while we still can. Good or Bad, Sooner or Later, we will get a job and go on living a life which will be governed by a boss and what will be left is to follow orders (a personal view what I’ve observed, I might be wrong, might be right). We’ll be so much caught up that, simple things that look such a waste of time today will look like so much fun that we’ll miss it.
People keep asking what I am doing now. People say that you should get a job real soon. Start working, it’s a beginning of a new era. You’ll enter a new life, what’s gone is gone. But what I say is we should enjoy life, have fun and go on live a life to the full while we still can. Now a days when I go to college and sit in the parking lot, or in canteen, enjoying the life, the faculty and my fellow classmates (except, for a few handful like me) gives us the stares asking what are you still doing here. Shouldn’t you be out there finding a job and not waste your time here. Well, I just want to say to them, is I’m doing those things, but side by side I want to take the time-out, enjoy life, and go to a gym while I still can. And one day I know I’ll get one good or bad doesn’t matter. But, in these few days I want to do what I want and not to worry much.
In the end all that I’m saying, is go out there have fun, do your work and enjoy life. These days are too small to waste and too few to worry on these small things. All we have to do is to find a balance between doing a job or finding one and living life. Well go out there enjoy life, do crazy stuff, and most important of all stop worrying, cause no matter what happens, life will take us somewhere good.

first of all welcome aboard dude. I can totally relate to what you are saying, am feeling the same way too. wanted to write same post for so long, but guess no need of that now. Same is the scene in our college. Everyone is so keen to get out of the college and start working. I don’t understand what is the hurry? These are the last few days and best days of life. you will be working whole life, why not just relax and enjoy them a little!
I had read your post by chance as I didn’t know about this site. I was searching something on net when it appeared in the options list and I reached there. I had gone through it and got your views. Your emphasis is on the enjoyment that is not bad. But I think you can find enjoyment everywhere. College is not the only place where you can get enjoyment. Watching TV, chatting on net, and going to hotel etc. are not the only source of enjoyment. Those who study diligently a subject can enjoy more than your definition of enjoyment. There is a proverb, ‘read between lines’, and those who read between lines really enjoy the subject as well as life. According to your post, a man can enjoy life when he does nothing which is expected from him. Bye and take care.
PS: If you reply it I send you my views
Well I agree with the fact that there are so many other ways in which one can enjoy. But at the end of the day I’m gonna have to disagree. College life is something which will happen only once or twice (with Post-Graduation) and the other things one can do throughout their life. Once out of college there’s no going back. The other thing is one makes so many friends in college but only a few remains in touch after college. So do crazy stuff with friends while we still can. Once out of college, people will get so busy with their jobs that friends will seldom meet and that to after making special plans or online (which I think is not worth it, one has to meet face to face to enjoy). I’m not saying that one can’t make friends after college, but how many are true is the real question. So, I’ll say it once again, that, enjoy the college life it’s gonna happen only once, LIVE it to the fullest.
