College Again! And my ‘shift’ key breaks.
(This one had to be published on the 20th… :P)
Today was a SUPER exhausting day! And one of ‘those’ days that stand out as the best days of your life. When I’m old (one day) and lying in a bed, knowing (“somehow”) that my time has come, I’ll see my life flashing before my eyes. I’ll want today to not just be in the life-movie, but all the fun we had to be in the closing credits (and bloopers!). Haha! :P
Today was the first day of college. We had our Orientation Day program (dance, drama, music!). It was SO much fun being on stage again! I don’t consider myself a good actor, but being a part of a troupe, hanging out, coming up with ideas, fooling around, sweating like I’ve spent a summer hour in a Delhi kitchen, the smell of the stage, the bright lights, listening to the audience’s reactions, covering up mistakes, technical difficulties, warm ups, dancing like maniacs, shedding inhibitions like old skin, and just feeling like I belong, all, make up the brilliant experience of acting in a play!
We’d been sweating it out in the auditorium for a week (or more) and on the day of the performance, it finally rained! After the program, we ran out into the college front lawns, and danced wildly under the almost-black clouds. Poor fuchchas, they probably thought we were mad, the way they stared! After Jhumbalika we were back in the college building, soaking wet, when the first first-year said that she wanted to join the DramSoc. Our President looked so happy!
Hehe… after all that fun, I fell ill. Perhaps the glorious rain is to blame! Aw well… it was worth it! I’m so glad college has re-opened! It’s nice to be back: getting late for class, chatting on the way to class, grabbing something quick to eat between classes, messaging friends when the teacher/lecturer arrives before they’re in class. Oh it’s good to be back! (I suppose I’ll be mourning the loss of the vacations within a week, though!)
