The I-Got-Into-College Post

The strangest part is that until a month ago I didn't know whether to call it Jood or Jay Yoo Dee Eee. I have now been enlightened.

I have a college to go to. I have things to study that I do not quite understand. I have lectures to attend that have me walking out with my head reeling. I have a vague agenda for the next three years, and a place to carry it out in. I have new people to pester. I do not have the Jadavpur University Department of English figured out as yet, but I'm not sure I want to. The place suits me just fine.

A lot of people predicted my getting into JU, some as far as five years ago; I fought and fought to prove them wrong but I've been banging my head into brick walls all my life. One cannot evade one's kismat beyond a point. Sorry people, hello world.

I Got Into College. I got into JUDE. It's not where I wanted to go all my life, but now that I'm here I want to sink in and stay.


Thank You.

Saw your name at the Presi list and was hoping and hoping you would join it, but yes, JUDE is, damn you woman, it would have been fun to see you at my college.

Go rule the place. JUDE is amazing.

<3 Glad to see you blogging again.
Also glad to hear you've found some place to pretend the continuance of education.

Shreya has put it very well. JUDE slowly sinks in, and then you feel at one with it.
Have fun here. It'll be an awesome 3 years.
And I was one of the people who predicted you'd get in.

JUDE is home :) It may be messy, but you gotta love it. And yes, in the light of recent blog posts this may seem a bit hypocritical, it's great (despite all the faults I have to pick).

Ps: How come you're never around. Your entire batch seems very shy.
