Law school starts in 10...9...8 ...7

Its about 8 30 am, this place is bustling with all sorts of people.There are of course the gentlemen in flawless linen and two  ply cotton shirts, the rich brats with shiny, pointy hair carefully manoeuvred to like they had never been combed in the first place and then theres our type.

Clad in pyjamas, sleeveless jerseys and loose shorts, there just for one purpose - to eat.

Halfway through the numerous helpings of bacon, pancake and sausages I clear my mouth - for a guy who doesnt drink or smoke , being full with the best kind of food there is, is the closest one gets to being 'high;.

"Guys, im leaving delhi in ten days. I can't believe i will be out of here ''

" Excuse me waiter, can we please have a refill of out watermelon juice'. My friend sitting infront of me smiles politely at the waiter  - 'thanks'

I throw him a quizzical look asking him if he was ignoring the question on purpose or something of that sort.

He looks at me , smirks and says ' what you wan to do ? hold hands?'

No best of luck wishes, no reassurances and no reminisces - not what i was expecting.

Three trips to nehru place , four trips to the dentist and several get togethers later.

Here I am, at my table looking at a collage with various photos of my friends and i - needless to say, each one has a story behind it.

I could stare at each one of them for hours, but that doesnt serve the purpose , it just defeats it. In my head, i have these weird notions of law school - and a list of many ' have- to's '

'i have to get in the mooting society, i have to get a good cgpa'... blah blah and the like.

And its tough not too be mired with doubts right now, for as of now i have nothing but anticipation and a destination i have never been to.

And after hours of fantasizing about the future - a line from one of my favourite characters comes to my mind....

And who's to say this isn't what happens? who can tell me my fantasies won't come true?

just this once.

And hence  a vague optimism engulfs me.

I have a peek at the calendar, five more days to go to law school =)

ps - im a first timer when it comes to blogging, any constructive criticism will be appreciated.
