Defying Gravity!

I love watching Glee !!!
Its still in its First season In India .....
Its a delightful programe and I like the songs they use, most of which I hear for the first time and take an immediate liking to.
This particular one has been playing over and over in my head.
Its one of the Tracks from the Broadway Musical  "Wicked"
The Broadway is adapted form the novel by Gregory Maguire entitled
"Wicked: The life and times of the wicked witch of the west"
The name of the song is 'Defying Gravity' it speaks about believeing in your self, taking a leap of faith and taking action!

                                                        Defying Gravity

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes... and leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I am defying gravity
And you wont bring me down!

I'm through accepting limits
'cause someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love

It comes at much too high a cost!

I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity

I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you wont bring me down!

                     This is the Glee Cast version of the song sung by Lea Michele and Chris Colfer who play Rachel Berry and Kurt Hummel respectively on the show.
Its a Lovely and Inspiring number hope you like it!

What 50% did to me !

50 Percent!
50 Percent!!!!
Wow !!!
I never expected this.
I know I should have expected it considering all the effort I put in my studies, but I never had to study much to land good marks it was always easy for me....
But 50 percent!
Now If I was Living alone with no living witness to my existence I would be able to digest this, I would have ignored it .....Said to myself it doesn't Matter ............
How ever those outside echo what I feel within ....
"I could have done better !"

                 I guess not doing too well in my academics made me realise(what my close ones were telling me all along was true) that I actually have the capacity and am not using it, or maybe it has made me ashamed and made me strive for more.
                 Whatever it is that 50 percent along with "second class" has Woken me up!
                 Its funny And I don't know how it Happened but now I KNOW that I can do better ..
Its like Been kicked off from bed when your having a dream of flying!
I have Landed head first on the ground ..
 and my head on the ground is what I need.,

I never considered Life After College, never thought seriously about it, but now I'm less on Face book more on Google.. looking up Colleges Job Profiles loading myself with information ........I have never been this concerned and this participative I'm  my life ...I am normally the Passive types I'd rather wait for things to fall in my lap....
Actually that's what I was doing the entire holidays .....
Looking to the heavens and waiting for some divine intervention ...some Giant hand to point the way ........

Nothing Happened ..

I guess the 50 percent along with a combination of events has jogged me back to the reality that my life will be what I want it to be and I cant take everything for granted.

The 50 percent has jogged me out of my complacence.
In a Funny way it has instilled me confidence ..
I know everything will be okay ..
I have been brought down to reality and m being level headed and feel the responsibility of my decisions.
I have also learnt some Humility parents were right after all ....I have to admit that ........

Well the 50 percent is a life changing experience brought on by my own carelesness and I needed it ......
And ........
Im Glad it happened....
