Exam Reasoning....

The Exams are approaching (tomorrow) and for once Im not biting my nails .....No No I haven’t become complacent ....I haven’t given up....No.....
But for once I just don’t care that much ......... Its not that the exams are not important ..its that they are not that important ..........

Studies and mugging can only do so much.......

It doesn’t teach me how to live,

How to stand up for myself,

How to deal with disappointments,

How to overcome "failures"......some of the most important lessons that we learn cannot be ...and will never be learnt in a classroom.

It can be learnt during long conversations with friends two days before exams, through silence, by just observing and listening to the world around you. The most important lessons are learnt through feelings of anger, jealousy, guilt, hopelessness, by participating in and experiencing life.

Right now I am taking charge of my life!! It feels so liberating and taking responsibility feels good!

I feel fully aware of the consequences of my actions and am ready to face it......

I am purposely not exactly studying today ............ because my mum’s stressing on it ... the more she says study, the more I don’t want to. I want to study because I want to study ...not because I want to please a Teacher, a Parent or an Aunt..............

Just had a row with my mum and she said I had a responsibility towards them..... I know I do ...but what about the responsibility that I have towards myself? Doesn’t that count for anything???

YEah I have been given a choice and I am thankful to my parents for working so hard that I have one ....but what’s the use of having a choice and then not using it?? I really want to be sure that what I am doing, I am doing because I want to do It ...even if I’m doing something for someone else it should be because I WANT to do it not because I HAVE to do it...... there lies the difference between feeling happy or resentful of one’s choice.

So the not so-important-exams here I come .......sunglasses on, sipping on refreshing coconut water floating on my buoy, relaxed, composed .........let tomorrow come ...Ill deal with it.

Here is a Quote that I put on Facebook a while ago…
"Education Boon or Bane??...depends on who U are ..........I mean....... Look at Einstein!!"   - Zena.
I don’t have anything against education as such, it is very important…..But here in India its not as flexible as it should be.... thats what I think anyway...

  1. never had faith in the system set up in ze motherland. Memorization never did it for me. Having said that, one cant neglect responsibilities towards education. Education is one thing, life experience is another. Im glad education here is a life experience. It sets you up for life. So hang in there and do well. Remember the world is your playground. Go mad!!

  3. I still believe that u just made up an excuse for not studying! ok jokes apart... This is something I echoed in one of my earlier posts too... So I feel very strongly about what you said about education in India not being flexible. N you passed some really telling comments there...

    "Just had a row with my mum and she said I had a responsibility towards them..... I know I do ...but what about the responsibility that I have towards myself? Doesn’t that count for anything???"

    True, very true, but I feel parents rarely understand this...
