FAREWELL AND LAST FEW DAYS IN COLLEGE: THE PASSING OUT BATCH
The last few days of college are very precious to each one and indeed a turning point in life. At this point, the decisions we make will lead to the vicissitudes of life which will come up further. Be it in terms of taking a turn to our career pathways or to building lifetime contacts and bonds.
The last few days are indeed very crucial with all the amazing memories and overwhelming experiences that we might recall throughout our lifetime. That tea stall, hangout spots, corridors, labs, lecture halls, even the vision of entrance of your colleges will besiege your world of thoughts for a very long time.
A farewell is indeed the day we all dream and talks about throughout graduation years. Although we don’t want to leave the place where we build all our lifetime memories yet it’s just the excitement of the celebrations, the entire gala meet, and an opportunity to realize and express how much that place and those people matter to us.
No matter how tough you are emotional, you will feel a glint of a tear in the corner of your eyes. The mere realization of parting ways with your gang is enough to bring
We all will make promises to stay in touch forever and meet at regular intervals and have trips together and whatnot. We all will always be an integral part of each other’s life for sure, but deep down we all know that now or then we will get busy and stuck in vicious cycles of our own lives. Sometime we will take a moment to recall and cherish these days when our lives will spare us enough time to do so. The best way to have these amazing memories, feeling, and people in our hearts long along with is to live in the moment. To cherish the present.
Do hangout with your friends -” your chosen family” and build memories which you can chant and cherish for entire life and but be astute enough to not dither in focusing on your interests and skills and making a smart move to achieve your dreams hand-in-hand.
Several things and activities the graduating batch does or things which are in their to-do list before graduating.
Capturing the precious moments in pictures and snapshots
Most of us keep a folder dedicated to preserving our college memories and moments. Living in the should indeed be our priority but these pictures will be the ones which will make us smile stupidly with teary eyes even decades after. Some candids taken in canteens, our favorite hangout spots, and of while sleeping in lectures will truly make us laugh our hearts out.
TRIPS, TOURS AND NIGHTOUTS
Most of us have had our first night out in college and if not first then definitely the most memorable ones. If you have randomly headed out of your pg, flats, or wherever you live after a phone call from a friend saying get ready we are going on a night out, “destination raste me plan kar lenge”. Unplanned outings always turn out to be the best and most memorable ones.
Going on a trip with your friends is something everyone must do in their college life. That is an experience worth having at least once.
SOUVENIERS AND SCRIBBLES
Scribble days as more like a ritual for the batches about to graduate. Scribbling the most sarcastic and dank nicknames is what this day is all about. People will look on those scribbled shirts and smile with maybe a tear rolling down.
Souvenirs are something you’ll want to keep long along, protectively as a token of the moments spends together.
People gift each other things like framed group photos, matching twinning t-shirts, coffee mugs, posters, or anything your friend likes or maybe which reminds you of any moment or incident experienced together.
THE FAREWELL BUZZ
The excitement of the farewell day keeps us going. That entire period of shopping together, planning your outfits, coordinating your timings is crazy to do together.
Since your college farewell is one for the very countable and rare moments of your life, you want to look best on this day.
Several college fashion societies even release their farewell lookbooks for you to refer to.
While boys at times regret their options being limited, girls flaunt their attire and dressing senses.
You can something Indo-western, or traditional or maybe simply a saree. Well saying simply a saree will be pretty much a contradiction. Also even in sarees you have got plenty of options in the design, color, material, pattern, and much more.
Many guys and girls take inspiration from fashion and beauty bloggers and dress up like that. Many even recreate some actors or actresses look which is widely appreciated from any of their public appearances.
There you see, how creative your excitement can make you.
That last goodbye, the last time you see those people, you have spent 3 or maybe 4 years with, definitely feels the same as the moment when we left our parents and moved ot a new city to study years back. It might in college after your last lecture, maybe in a cafe after your last meal together, at midnight after you last night out together or maybe at the station waving off the last bye to each other. I bet you won’t be able to resist those tears. With lots of promises to always stay connected and with a heavy heart, you’ll bid your last goodbye.
Well, while writing this article, I do realize the plight of the batch of 2020, as I am one of them. 2020 has truly turned out to be much disastrous yet and has pretty much ruined not just our farewell buzz and excitement but also our entire final semester.
But as truly said, everything happens for a reason and there’s never too late to live, laugh and love. So, with the hope that this is going to end sooner or later and we will be meeting our beloved ones after this. Let not the hope die, within!
