You know you are in final year when …

Filed under: Misc — Teal @ 1:04 pm

You know you are in final year when …

  • The concept of ‘Kadalai’ seems futile to you.
  • You start harboring parental feelings for all the members of the opposite gender. [Who are younger, obviously.]
  • Your teaching staff are very, very friendly towards you.
  • You know it’s only because you are leaving this year.
  • You get these sudden rushes to do daring things that you’ve never dared to do before.
  • You don’t do those anyway.
  • The juniors call you akka/anna and you feel like the lady in the hair dye ad from eons ago. [The one in which she hears the echo of “aunty … aunty … aunty”.]
  • When you are in retrospective mood for most of the days.
  • When you start dreading the moment you step into the big bad world.
  • When you start to worry about pay packages and laugh thinking how you were this worried last when you’d just finished school.
  • When the most frequently talked about topics amidst your gang are:
  • Who’s going to get married first/last?
  • Who’ll have kids first?
  • Where you’ll be when you are 25 … or 10 years down the line.
  • When you get all choked up on hearing “Musthafa” from Kadal Desam or “Graduation (friends forever)” by Vitamin C.

  3. Hey phoenix, when u are in the final year u tend to spend a lot of time retrograding. Especially when you have exams. 😛

  5. but ur code atleast seems to work!(what if it’s late by a day or two;), blame it on the slow compiler?!)

    quiznet..not so active on that…trapped in another net now!semester exams…from tomorrow!

    and by sentiments on engineering did you mean-‘why the hell did i get into engineering?’.I’m putting it mildly here though!
