Time has run its course on this MBA. It was so quick and by the end of it I made connections so strong that I don’t think they are going to dissolve anytime soon.
This past year I learned a lot. Not just about business and management but also about people and most importantly about myself.
I learned that I cannot fix everything, no matter how hard I try. I have to let go and let people deal
with their problems in their own way.
I learned that people care for each other in their own way as well.
I realized just how lucky I was to be born in the family that I was born in.
I learned that the grass is always greener on the other side.
Chai is heaven.
I learned that I can cook entire meals using hot water and a microwave.
I learned just how close people can get to your heart in such a short time. So much so that the heart feels like it’s breaking when they leave.
There is an emptiness that I’ve never felt. And I have lived the college life twice before. My people here have touched my life in such a way that they became inseparable.
I’m so thankful for the friendships and everyone with whom I made beautiful and colorful memories. These memories that keep replaying in my head.
Before this course started I was extremely scared. Scared of the unknown and of how I will be able to cope with a one year intensive course. But there are so many moments that helped me cope-
Long walks on the bridge
Chai at any time of the day or night
Sitting on the Bench
View from the Balconies
Game of Thrones
Lots of Cooking
Grocery Shopping on a budget
Lots and lots of songs
Passive smoking for so long that even my hair smelled like cigarettes
Birthday Parties where something or the other always went wrong
Long long chats and gossip sessions
Global Learning Trips
Doing new things like Surfing and bush walking
Just hanging out… doing nothing…
Bricks Pub at Ibis where we celebrated the placements
So, in the future, I may forget a lot of things that happened in my life in 2017, but the above are a few that would always be close to my heart. As I do my last packing and see all the certificates, notes and books I have from this year- I’m taking with me something more precious. This something I don’t have any words for. It cannot be described or explained, but everyone who lived this experience with me will know what I’m talking about. No matter how much we cribbed this entire year, now that it’s over, it is extremely hard to let go.
To all my people, I wish you the best in life. I hope we can keep meeting and keep hugging. I promise I will be there for you all if you ever need me to be.
I love you! Thank you for a wonderful year that I will always cherish in my heart and mind.
