I was typing and still didn't know what I was about to post when it suddenly struck me like all my brainwaves always do (which aren't the brainy ones you may think of, but simple truths which may
leave you dumbfounded!!) . I have wasted my holidays!!! True, holidays are for fun, to relax and enjoy.That doesn't mean not even looking at the direction where your school books lay, that too when you are in the period when you are promoted from 9th to 10th std!!!!
HALT!HALT! put on the brakes,madam!Why are you getting so scared??What's wrong in spending holidays like holidays are supposed to?? You weren't just sleeping throughout the holidays....True,you didn't touch that 10th std math textbook(yuck) but that doesn't mean you lazed around!!You read more thrillers in one month than sachin tendulkar's total amount of centuries!!Sometimes you helped your grandmother before she could scream and you have been working hard on your blog, so CHILL! You haven't committed a crime, YET. This was the other part of me.
Welcome everybody! I am popularly known as 'SEMI' among my friends and although I didn't name myself that I knew that it was the perfect word for me.I like most people am two inside and somewhere in the middle of the two paragraphs outside!!!Particularly in this post I am going to confuse myself in the dilemma : did I UTILIZE my holidays or not?? WAIT! why the hell should we UTILIZE an holiday?? did I ENJOY my holidays or not?See I confused it again!!
Coming back to the point, however I justify my loafing around, it is WRONG! All my classmates (well not all) have gone for math and various other tuitions and have finished the syllabus for the next year and 4 guys (no nerds!) have even joined the great IIT coaching and have finished their 11th portions. I accept with a sane mind that I couldn't have finished everything like them but should have at least revised the completed portions.
Dude! cut the crap! Once an idiot no one measures the scale of foolishness! Similarly once I have decided to study why should I count the pages?! OK. Coming to my point, what do I gain by studying all the chapters the teachers are going to cover?!The poor teachers surely wont like us shouting all the answers at her and won't the classes become even more boring?The element of surprise and interest is the only way classes become interesting!
STOP! How much more ignorant can I get??! I am grown up now, even if my other part doesn't think like that the teacher would.I am not coming to tell that mugging before the teacher is right but, dude! there is something called preparation!!In 10th std the teachers just don't have the time to go deep enough and they leave it to us to explore further.....so I have indeed wasted 2 months of my life reading novels and on the net...:-(
GET A LIFE! all I am doing is getting sad with myself......It is NOT a waste of time.The books I have read are all courtroom novels and blogging as improved my writing skills and typing speed!! What is wrong in reading courtroom novels as I am improving my chance of becoming a lawyer!Nothing is a waste of time unless Aimed to achieve nothing!OK my mood is getting worse as I getting more philosophical........I have learnt to cook or at least eat well with my aunt's help and I have constantly stayed in touch with my FRIENDS which makes all the time worthwhile! I have visited crores of temples and have developed my Hindi watching Bollywood films and doing some things only I can do during holidays!
- I Didn't study sufficiently enough to satisfy myself.....
- I have connected with my friends
- I have blogged! :-)
- Courtroom novels aren't that bad (but surely I am not fancying that it would help me better as it will make reality look very bad ;-) )
- I did waste my time but not my taste
- I did help my grandmother! (sometimes only.....)
