It has been 4 weeks since the start of our startling life at TIP. For me life has taken a dramatic and extremely sharp turn, resulting in a lot of astonishing and unforeseen happenings around us. When I first stepped into the brown bricked building of TIP and saw the lake and the lawn, I was like gosh, what a real heaven on earth, but as time passed by I gradually started to realize that there is a great deal of darker side to things at TIP. I donâ€™t mean to point at something or somebody, but literally speaking, the second part of the picture is revealed after quite sometime. I have met some really nice and supportive people as well as some really nasty and self-centered ones. But to be very honest, thatâ€™s the way in the walk of life, you get to meet different kinds of people, but it do help you to cope up with almost anyone, it makes you learn how to manage situations and how to deal with good and bad people.
Anyway, I donâ€™t really mean to sound like I am having a bad time or something, no not at all, I think my decision for coming to TIP was one of the best decisions I ever took in my life because the kind of exposure we are getting here might not be possible anywhere else, and to speak about the faculty, they are literally very good, they are experienced and skilled in their respective fields and have the right amount of proficiency. Itâ€™s just that we all need some time to get used to things that are normally not part of our lives previously.
I have made some really great and terrific friends. We all have become really close and attached to each other, as if we know everyone from ages. Friendship, no doubt is the most beautiful relationship that could ever exists, it has all the power and potency to make your existence worthwhile, that actually makes you realize that yes life is exquisite. Friendship is one emotion that would actually stick with you forever, making your life better and better with every single step you take, giving you audacity, endurance and courage to prove yourself in front of the world.
Anyway, life at TIP is not really appalling after all; there is loads of fun and entertainment here, so I guess we wonâ€™t be bored. In fact I think this is just the start of an extremely fast paced roller coaster ride that would actually make our throats go sore from screaming. I just hope (fingers crossed) that the ride is worth having and that we all end up as good human beings, with the potential to bring a change in our lives as well as in the lives of others. And also that others look up at us as role models and people of substance.
I hope that the freshies have the valor to endure whatever is up for us; my prayers are with the seniors (fourth years) for utilizing and employing what they have learned from TIP and for the sophos and the juniors (second and third years) hmmmmmm, I donâ€™t have much to say for you guys : )
Remember that we all are worthwhile and that we all possess the power to bring a change in our lives.
