Thank you for the fun !

Well! We’ve finally come to the end, and I mean THE END of school life! (ok, I’ve made the obvious assumption that none of us are going to have the pleasure of writing the compartment exam). Truth be told, it’s not such an exciting prospect – I don’t know how I’m going to get used to the fact that I don’t have to get up at 6 am anymore, that I don’t need to polish my shoes a blinding white every morning, that I don’t have to drive down Taylor’s Road at 8.05am each morning come rain or RAIN, that I don’t have to even dream of Princi… That’s going to take a lot of getting-used to acdjually !

I still can’t believe that 9 years have flown past so smoothly and so so very quickly.. it seems like just yesterday, when I was offered admission in Chinmaya Kilpauk and Anna Nagar as well as Chettinad.. The decision to make Taylor’s Road my home away from home for the next 9 years, at that time, seemed pretty insignificant – after all, it was just another school for me. It didn’t boast of a swimming pool, or a huge football field or even a canteen, which made me wonder what kind of a school it would turn out to be. All I can say now is that THANK GOD I didn’t choose to join any other school ! I can’t imagine myself having all the fun that I’ve had in this school in any other institution.. nowhere else! Of course, coming from a convent, the bhagwad-gita chanting took a little getting-used to.

Moreover, the past 9 years, more specifically, the last 3 years have been some of the most memorable years of my life thus far. I will always remember school for all the wonderful people I’ve met, and the good times that I’ve had with them. True, the picture isn’t all rosy. I might not be all that popular, and I’m generally at the butt-end of most jokes, some of them pretty hurting ones. But I guess all that’s part of school life…

I’ve learnt much more here, not just science and math. I’ve learnt how to make new friends, learnt new skills, and basically had a great time!Infact, I even became House Leader, and got to lead my house to victory for the first time in 18 years!!!

I mean, the number of wacky things we’ve done as a batch – the chants of go-pee-e-e-e, the starters and the sodium, the trips to ccd and glb(our friendly neighbourhood bakery), all our jaunts at the various culturals, the fun we have in sekar’s class, satya and his pats on the back, our brilliant marks throughout the year – I could go on and on ! I guess the best way to sum all this up is by watching Tariq’s brilliant video

I guess I’ve spent by far the most memorable moments of my life in this place called school.. it’s a place unlike any other, and only because of all of you – quirky, fun-loving, crazy, mischevious, jumpy, blabbery, talented – basically just a bunch of oddballs!

The past few years, spent ‘studying’, working, competing, playing, eating – blabbering.. man, all these things had such a charm of their own! It’s always put a BIIIIG smile on my face and these memories.. *sigh*.. will always stay with me forever… like BowlingForSoup says, “High School Never Ends!”

I’d like to say a BIIIIGGG thank you to each one of you who have made this journey unique and truly memorable!
