It so happened yesterday, that I could not decide whether I should read a book or watch some movie. Since I could not choose between any of these, I decided to do some vella online. But bsnl loves playing spoil sport and made me choose between my two previous options. Since I had a good Agatha Christie book titled 'The Big Four' and it seemed interesting, I made my choice.
Everyone had slept off and so I had to choose the hall to read. And then I felt the same as I used to during my PLs. I used to sit with a book in my hand, on my very comfy couch, and my cell close to me...txting away to glory. During exams I used the landline too a lot to chat away with anyone who was only willing to have some fun. I used to talk and laugh and giigle in whispers, lest anyone should wake up and find out about my late night activities :P. As for the telephone bill, don't ask :P. The landline is at a very convenient location if you are on the couch, thats the primary reason for choosing the said location :D. We used to discuss entire units and papers over the phone, what a phone addict I was then. I remember we used to fix up times to call and never miss any appointment...never :).
Those days, how sweet the tension of the exams. How we were never really worried even if we hadn't read through an entire unit. Compare this to school days or junior college days and we were so heavily loaded with the responsibility of finishing all the portion 2-3 months before the exam and then keep revising the syllabus. The PLs was the one time, every engineer really looks forward to. Its that time when you are supposed to be studying but you never feel like doing so. You want to have fun, but that fun is kept under control by parents or self aware students since they keep yelling at you to study.
Yes, exams were an evil but it brought with it so much fun that I wish I could have my PLs again :)
