You may find this hard to believe, but I did some serious thinking for this post because I had to tell you something very important. The options I considered:
- A Serious, philosophical post, something that starts with an Oscar Wilde quote and goes on to describe the Oxford Dictionary definition of “dreams” and “ambitions”, etc. Needless to say, the post was neither serious nor philosophical, but downright funny. Result – Discarded.
- A thought provoking poem or prose. Do I even need to tell you what the result was, considering my best poem is on the lines of “There was a cat, it sat on a mat, played with a bat.” You get the picture.
- A short story on a third person character, which ultimately turns out to be me. I was seriously expecting this to turn out well. But when, from out of nowhere, a blood-curdling scream came in to the climax, I knew I had diverted enough.
And so, I decided, I am going to say this the way it is. That is, I will shout at the top of my lungs from the roof-top, because that is precisely what I want to do. So, here goes:
I GOT THROUGH! I GOT THROUGH! I GOT THROUGH!
I GOT THROUGH AN MBA IN A PREMIER B-SCHOOL. HA.
I GET TO QUIT MY JOB AND GO BACK TO COLLEGE. HA.
Phew! Good to get it out of the system. 🙂
Post a few months of hard work and some nerve wrecking interviews and Group Discussions, I can safely say, I crossed the river. I am on the other side. And boy, is it exciting!
I know, for someone who used this space as a vent for ranting about work, this comes as a googly, but guess what, I am actually thankful to my job – for giving me an experience of a lifetime, which I could share proudly in the interview, for making me a decent speaker (all those meetings helped, huh?), and for making me want to do an MBA.
That’s the funny thing with dreams and wishes, isn’t it? They nag you. And how! When they come true, they form a huge silly smile on your face, that says “I did it.” Happiness is different things for different people. For me, this is it.
On an unrelated note, I figured, I need to blog more. No genius discovery this was, I know. So, I thought I’ll take up NaBloPoMo. Only that in my case it stands for:
National- Blog (as soon as something strikes me, instead of procrastinating)- Posting- Month
You’ll see a lot more of me. I promise.
