March 19, 2010. Uff, an end to misery. Hectic schedules would come to an end. I could wake up at 8 after 3 long years. I could watch Naruto from 9 to 5. I could eat and sleep whenever I want. Yes, I had completed my 12th std exams. I still remember, these were my exact thoughts when I came out of the exam hall.
But March 19, 2012. Looking back today, there was much more to it. The year had so many memorable events to it, only to be masked by the insanely important BOARD EXAMS!!
I still remember,
Going to classes at 8 05 and finishing breakfast by 8 10, before the teacher comes, shoving whatever was in the box blindly.
Starting a cold war with Maths ma'am because she didn't let me sit with my friends.
Being an all-boys team and winning the School Rangoli competition.
Coincidental unshaven face becoming a perfect make-over for the politician's role in the drama that we staged.
Writing 3*2 = 5 and missing out a 200 in maths (LOL :D )
Calling friends and trying to put up a schedule for half-an-hour and finally saying "Ada poda. Paathukkalam." before hanging up.
Specifically requesting Thyagu sir to attend the evening batch (All Arul Institute students would know why. ;-) )
Pleading with Arul sir that we'd write tests early morning so as to accommodate the schedule.
Watching Yu Yu Hakusho, Hungry Heart and AstroBoy and discussing them in class.
Half and hour prep-time for next micro-test that turned into sleep-time.
Wantedly leaving notebooks in the Sanskrit class and interrupting both French and Sanskrit classes.
Echoing CS class answers sitting in the corridor (we were Bio students btw. )
Going flower-searching, the day before practicals.
Playing Kings(Dodgeball or whatever you call it) during PT sessions, because that was the only possible game in our school ground.
Cricket match after the end of every micro-test series.
Singing "Happy birthday" randomly whenever English teacher starts advising.
Records, observations, tests, exams, practicals, revisions. I can only laugh at those memorable times.
Whatever said, school was special because that is where we learnt to have fun, enjoy yourselves and get that 'come-what-may' attitude. College? That's a different roller-coaster, all together.
Memories, and so so many of them. I do miss school :)
