Lies about Schools and Colleges

Sepia in Nature

No, as much as some of you think I can’t keep afloat, I can.

And in spite of how it sounds, I enjoyed school more than college. It probably has to do with the boundaries of freedom or rather the lack of them, while in college. When the world suddenly opens up there is too much to explore and get accustomed to – perhaps that is the reason. The time is spent in exploring the boundaries rather than being in them. And by the time you know them it’s already time to leave. The smaller world in school, though restrictive to an extent – was fun – probably because there was great excitement in breaking a rule? Or perhaps – there wasn’t much to be explored – so being in it was what we did.

The further behind it is, the more nostalgic it becomes. Something like antique value, sprinkled with sentiments.

In response to my previous post.
