"Tu baahar ke universities kyu nahi try karti?"
Then we celebrated new year...n it was the same!!
But things changed....they changed big time!!
University lists, IELTS, SoP, conditional offers, GRE dilemma, entrance exams and of course Eco. Hons. final year exams!
Then there was visa forms, visa photograph, bank loans, visa documents, birth certificate (right I was finally legally born), visa blah blah - basically VISA PROCEDURE!
And farewells...to my college, my college friends, family friends, dance students, Dwarka friends, high school friend (coz only one came to Delhi - rest was done on phone) and my family!!
This year was like a revolution - divided into two parts! First 8 months n last 4 months!!
First half I was struggling with driving a car, entering the kitchen only to sneak out snacks, going to a grocery market by mistake, last minute studying just to manage to have a pass in the exams, drinking with friends n talking about how hopeless n blurred our future is, plans with high school friends, college friends, Dwarka friends...
Second half was just the opposite of the first half! No driving, cooking full time lunch n dinner, shopping became an equivalent to buying groceries n cooking oil, preparing the study material before every class, future is not that hopeless anymore (hopefully), talking to friends about plans on whatsapp....
Suddenly from Bachelors in Economics I say Masters in Finance. From saying "I am in India" I say "I am in UK". From saying "I am with my family" I say "I am in a hostel". From being in a girls' college to living with 6 guys as hall mates (More on that change later!)
Things did change and change is good!
The first day of 2013 started with a little joke in Bangalore, India and here I am, waking up from celebrating the last day of the year in Oxford, England, UK!!!
Happy New Year everyone!!!
