Happy thoughts

So, realization dawned upon me that i’d rather not dwell in a world of gloom and despair that comes with being a regular college student. Perhaps, in the last three years, for better or worse I had been taking myself and everything around me too seriously, but now at the close of my Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology from the prestigious St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata, I feel lighter and more at peace with myself having gone through all the sessions of rigorous classes and syllabus completion.

Probably, at the end of it, i do realize that it is all part of my training for a more disciplined and knowledgable me, plus a major learning about people who are slightly different from me, coming from backgrounds and places that were hitherto unheard of by me; hailing from an uptown and modern metropolitan city like Noida. Not to mention, the warmth and hand of friendship that nearly all of my classmates extended out to me towards the end of our last two semesters, and we had almost become one unit working together to complete all the lab work and also get the required notes on time. I shall probably write a more detailed account of what Xavier’s college has taught me in terms of personality development and academic knowledge, but I will save that for a later post, as I must return to preparation for the final semester exams.

Until then, this is dbc95 signing off!


Just how awesome is Parks and Recreation?

I recently started watching this American sitcom called Parks and Recreation which has managed to position itself into the list of top comedy series that I have ever watched! There are so many aspects to this particular programme that can’t help me from literally swinging from side to side in laughter and stimulate teary eyed reactions. Thus far, in my almost three years of college I have been watching way more serious, niche and even bordering on disturbing Tv shows as well as movies such as Breaking Bad and True Detective, but come Parks and Rec, it is a refreshing and welcoming change from all that darkness. Sure, those dark themes taught me about the various ways in which people think and how the criminal world operates, but this particular comedy-satire has blown my mind away! Be it the simple but very interesting array of characters, or the subtle humour of each dialogue, not to mention a slight mockery of the ways and means of ordinary Americans in a small residential town called Pawnee, almost everything works for me in the right way for this programme.

Just when I am terribly bored of the usual reality and huge load of studies, I think of taking a break to watch another episode of the show and just find myself in splits, feeling energized and refreshed again. I totally am grateful to few of my friends, two in particular, who suggested this amazing watch to me..truly, my faith in presence of like-minded and perfectly humorous people is restored. *feeling-at peace.*

Parks and rec!
