“As a child we always wanted to grow up fast , but now we realize that incomplete homework and broken toys were far better than unfulfilled dreams and the world outside.” As a child grows so do his tensions and responsibilities .
Well this cannot define the difference between the school life and college life but provides us a sufficient outline.
We always wanted to grow up fast like our parents so that no one can scold us or instruct us to do anything.
In school life there are tensions of studies rather I would suggest that if we take up studies as daily routine like bathing ,eating etc then we would feel relieved of this tension. In school we have teachers to support us and teachers at school cares for us and love us like a mother and expect us to be disciplined so that we are on the right path of a a bright future. We enjoy a lot under the motherly warmth of our teachers at school.
We always wanted freedom, we used to think it exists.
Does it? Yes it does. It exists in the frank discussion with your teacher in school.
It exists in the fight over stupid matters with friends in school.
It exists in playing pranks with friends and teachers in school.
It exists in passing a lovely smile to teacher for even the gravest mistakes in school.
It exists in not completing assignments on time and still asking for marks, in school.
When at school, we feel that we are bound by many rules and regulations and once we will reach college we will be a free bird, no teachers to force us to attend classes, no uniforms, etc. But no, we are under a false notion. At college we may be misguided and go astray without the supervision of teachers. There the students who care for studies have to keep themselves updated and are bound to attend classes whether they wish to or not because attendance does matter and carries marks! In college you are the best judge of good and bad. The so called freedom is a mirage because responsibility of your actions lies on you. There is no one to guide you, to lead you on. I am in college and I know the freedom out here – it is an illusion.
However it is the school life which gives us the real freedom – the freedom to live in a cocoon of care, concern and commitment of our teachers. The best phrase to sum up school life would be ‘A Free Life’.
So enjoy your school life, enjoy your freedom!!
And in the end all I would like to say is “In the cookie of life, school and teachers are the chocolate chips that make life sweet, surprising and yummy.” I would like to thank my teachers for being the yummy choco-chips of my life.
