Walking by to our classroom today morning, I wondered about how life had changed in Manipal. No, not about how life changed after I came to Manipal but how the second semester here seemed a bit different, a hell lot hectic and completely screwed up. Literally. I remember studying sufficiently in the first semester and getting a 9.60 GPA. Yes, that was great. But now? For the same I guess I have to slog it out. Damn.
So, besides the persistent curricular troubles, I am now in the IEEE committee and unfortunately that means, being a mule for six days and (damn) more. Agreed, that it is what every freshie has to do to grow up the ranks, it gets undoubtedly hectic. More than often, I find myself surviving on Wai Wai from the night canteen while sitting in my room, freakishly tired. Not to forget I am doing the same now, although for totally unrelated reasons (I went to the food court and I came walking right out, you now know the reason). To top it all, I have these competitions to compete in, one involving the making of a robot and that gets to my nerves. No, making a robot is fun but if that includes frequent trips to Mahalasa Electronics (The only sane electronics shop here i.e. Udupi + Manipal) during the mid-morning and sometimes at noon, frequent visits to the ATM and yes, work in the MIT Workshop, not to forget some workshops, duty at IEEE kiosks (Yes, kiosk is the word. Infodesk is just not classy, not to forget grammatically incorrect), life takes in every pain imaginable to get to the next stage towards hell.
