Change is the only constant. Okay. We can do nothing but embrace the change. Sure.
I don’t want this major change to happen. It’s been a year now since we graduated from college and already things are changing at a rapid pace. We weren’t meant to grow up so soon. No! Students should be allowed to have a year off after graduation to discover themselves, go on trips, explore, see the world, anything and everything that they want to do. Anything but falling into the trap of job and career.
I agree that career is important, but not as important as your life. Anyway, coming to the point, things are changing dramatically on the ‘friends’ front. I lost my best friend over a misunderstanding and a third person, one of my friends is getting engaged and will soon move to another state, another one is going out of town to pursue further studies, one of them is leaving everything behind and going on a month long adventure trip, another one is getting into the grove of her new job, one is working hard to be a great journalist, one is soon going to be a big name in the sports fraternity and one in the TV industry. In short, everyone is leaving to make their new paths. We won’t meet that often now, we won’t have crazy sleepovers now, everything is changing, and I am not ready for it.
Everyone is doing some or the other thing, and here I am, doing just a regular job, not following my passion and dreams. I wish I could just rewind and go back to the first day of college and re-live it. Oh please take me back to the start!
If any one of you who is reading this is still in college or school, please follow my advice and live it to the core, you won’t get these days back. Don’t crib about homework or exams, they are just a part of your journey. Make memories, make each day count. Make mistakes, learn from them. Cherish the friends that you make on your way, hold them close. You will miss these days when are over, make it worth your while.
Mean while, I will just accept this change.
