My father came back home a few hours back, and guess what he got for me. No, not a stupid doll from the stories. It was my 18th birthday gift, a Canon EOS 7D!!! Man, the price of gifts just escalates every year. He gave me my first digital compact camera when I turned 17. But I’ll have to stay away from it for now, my papers aren’t over yet.
Anyways, school’s finally over….phew.
Just one more paper before I let go of my school uniform, which doesn’t fit me anymore, by the way. As I said on my Facebook status update, my weight has increased more in the past 4 months than the past 4 years…and my BMI just labelled me as an overweight board student. But hey, I dont mind much. Like I said, boards ke baad to time hi time hai (after the entrances of course. I won’t like mum reading this). I’ll work my ass off to glory.
Coming to the point, the Maths board paper. It was pretty easy actually, all copied from NCERT. Could I ask for more? I won’t answer that cause the wish list is endless and the topmost will be handing out the answer key along with the question paper, but then obviously, I’m asking for too much.
Apparently, even the people who set the paper don’t like the U-LIKE. Haa!
“Up yours!” to the people who ate my head and tried to make me study from U-LIKE.
Okay, the paper was pretty easy and all except a few questions that I never manage to attempt correctly. Like maxima and minima. Sadly, they always come for 6 marks. That burnt a hole in the heart. But never mind.
To sum it up, I’ve never seen so many happy faces after a board exam. That’s called making up for the morose ones after physics.
Now back to my ‘deep thoughts’. School life is over, and it took the joy of bunking with it. But never mind, we’ll have better things to do in college(Everyone said so!). But now, we won’t have REPs wearing sports shoes under sarees chasing us from the Open Air Theatre to the football field. Or Chaubey bhaiya (one of the security guards) asking us not to sit under peepul trees and in the football field or the stage area. Or the same guy breaking fights between random kids during recess. There won’t be PD (Prem Dhawan, the Chem HOD) passing funny comments on students or Jacob sir sharing double meaning jokes in the staff room (yes sir, I was signing the board form when you said it) or Hussain sir (the physics teacher/dreaded class teacher)
talking about morals, ethics and values AND about not handing things with the left hand, his ‘clockwise hand movement to draw a circle’, his invitation to the kids for seviyan at his house for eid, etc. The list is endless. To sum it up, I guess I will miss school to an extent.
But hey, it’ll be a good change.
