  • Mess food was hard to digest.
  • Later shifted to 50 accommodated dormitory room(Highways extension block) with my classmates.image
  • Since we were allotted rooms with our classmates(Jayasenthil, Murali, Swaminathan, Vasanth, Rajesh, Arul Viknesh, Anand Vikram, Murali, Dhiliphan, Thiru kumaran,Saravana) itself all these years, have been spending most times only with them and all get-goings only with them.

Few things that made me feel 000203F6.gif (75×65)

  • Often fell into mocks and teases, most of which turned to be disgraceful, than funny.
  • When someone forcibly interfered something I had personal.
  • I was never comfortable with some used-tos and hence couldn’t find a sole companionship.
  • With some I couldn’t change this attitude “Don’t ask me anything, I too won’t ask”.

Few things that made me feel great

  • Dressing sense greatly improved.
  • Learnt why to go for the best.
  • Learnt when to be punctual.
  • Learnt how to be economical.
  • Learnt why I shouldn’t lie again.
  • Learnt why there should be lots of friends.

Me joining in Anna University, happened suddenly and unexpectedly; I have always considered it lucky. Its surely hard to leave such a leisurely spent hostel life, I will miss it badly.
