Hostel Life #7

My university has a tradition of giving an annual Christmas dinner to all the faculty members, their families and to the Christian students. It is one of the biggest celebration before Christmas. They also arrange a grand Christmas play in the hall. I, being a freshman, witnessed everything for the first time and it was all so mesmerising.

Here are the few pictures:

Life Lessons: What Hostel Life Looks Like?: What it teaches you?: What type of people you meet in a hostel?: 

There are certain THINGS in life that makes you feel like you’ve changed when you’re not but want to.

There are certain PEOPLE in life whom you meet and feel like they’re not the type of people you are or they’re not good for you.

Sometimes you meet the ones who’re of your type but not YOU. They don’t have the heart, emotions, and mindset like you.

There are certain situations where you feel like you’re DONE with life. You no more wants to live but the second moment you feel scared of death.

Sometimes you feel like, I don’t want to talk to ANYONE. Everyone seems so bad and fake as if they’re against you and wishes the bad for you.

Sometimes you cares for everyone. Everyone seems so good and kind as if they’re your BESTIES. You chat with them and do fun with them. However, the next morning you feel like there exist no one like them. They passed by you you as if they never met you.

This is what HOSTEL is. Here you learn what LIFE is.

Home sickness is an obvious thing when you are a hostelite, living with strangers. Nothing makes you feel good or relaxed when everyone around you is either fake or obliviant to whatever happens to you. I agree that not everyone is fake but it is true that no-one is your really good *friend.* If someone talks to you politely, it does not mean that they are honest with you. It’s an advice for everyone who will  go to hostel that, ‘DO NOT ATTACH EMOTIONS WITH ANYONE. DON’T DEPEND ON ANYONE. LEARN TO ENJOY ALONE. NEVER LOOK OUT  FOR ANYONE TO TALK TO YOU OR TO MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD. RATHER, TALK TO YOUR FAMILY, AND CLOSE CHILDHOOD FRIENDS, ONLY. THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES ON WHOM YOU CAN TRUST. NEVER SHARE YOUR SECRETS WITH ANYONE. DON’T TRUST PEOPLE EASILY. NEVER CHANGE YOURSELF BY LOOKING AT SOMEONE BECAUSE YOU WILL GET TO MEET ALOT OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE WITH DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS. IT’S NOT GOOD FOR YOU TO COPY SOMEONE’S STYLE OR WAY OF LIVING. DON’T WASTE YOUR ENERGY IN MAKING GRUDGES. RATHER, FOCUS ON YOUR STUDIES; KEEP IN MIND THE PURPOSE OF YOUR STAY AT HOSTEL. BE HONEST WITH ALMIGHTY AND YOUR PARENTS.’

If you don’t get my point so just focus on the simple phenomena: ‘BE KIND, BE CARING, BE GOOD, BE SENSIBLE.’ That’s all.!

Before you get bored, let me tell you the lighter side of living in a hostel. If you’re lucky enough to have good and honest roomates, your life will become heaven. You’ll enjoy with them, do combine studies, and have fun with them. I’m blessed to have very friendly roomates. We enjoy alot. Like yesterday, it was Friday, we took lectures, got freed, it started rain, we played ludo, talked, played songs, went to a mess, ate cake rusk with tea, came back, decorated our room with fairy lights, invited seniors to look at our room, chatted with them, ordered cheese rolls, watched a movie, and went to sleep. It was so much fun. Hoping to have a great weekend. Wishing you all the same. Xoxo💕

Here’s the pictures of our room.

Hostel Life #4

In this part of the series, I’ll mention  the blessings I got by being a hostelite.  I’m so blessed to have admitted in the best university I can imagine. It is like a  dream come true. All thanks to Almighty for showering me with so much of everything.

So here are the things I enjoy being a hostelite:

  1. Getting up early in the morning.
  2. Taking proper breakfast, on time.
  3. Being punctual.
  4. Having whatever lunch or dinner is made without any tantrums. Though I’ve an option to order food but there’s a sense of responsibility that this is my budget and I’ve to deal accordingly. (But still I ordered twice or thrice😂😂)
  5. Walking in the lush, emerald  green grounds.
  6.  Sitting around a water fountain.
  7. Rushing towards the coordinator’s office for attendance at sharp 8 pm. and the chatt we have with her during that 1, 2 minutes is one of the best part of the day.
  8. Roaming around the hostel but only till 9 pm.
  9. Going to senior’s rooms.
  10. Playing ludo and uno.
  11. Chatting with the different people from different backgrounds
  12. Watching the matches. (My university promotes sports very much and is best known for the annual sports days.)
  13. Having tea at 4 pm.
  14. Thinking of the snacks or food we get in the mess. That curiosity has it’s own charm. 😁
  15. Playing loud music on weekends.
  16. Setting alarms. 😂😂
  17. Taking handwash out of the cupboards ever time I go to washroom. It’s funny but it’s what it is.
  18. Going to the ‘big tree’ for free WiFi. (My university have this very old, big tree around which we sit and enjoy at night but only till 9 pm as after this time gates are closed.)
  19. Gossiping with roomates.
  20. Sharing stories of our experiences with other hostelites.

Here are the pictures of my Hostel/University:

Hostel Life #3

So the problems we face as a hostelite are countless. Our  days starts at 6 a.m. with us rushing  towards the common  washroom  to get the *first, first* washroom because the chances of lizard lying there are less.😂😂 Then we quickly  brush our teeth, get fresh, and rush  towards  the sharing unit, called a mess. The breakfast due to which we rushed, and struggled is just a fried egg, two breads, a butter, a jam, and ofcourse a tea. (I’ll make a post on the *menu for a week*).

The time we take to eat breakfast depends on the timings of our classes. Let’s  say, if we have a class at 8 a.m., then we complete our breakfast by 7:30-40 a.m.  and rushed towards  our respective  rooms to get dressed  for a class. But if we have a class at,  say 9:30 or 11:00 or 2:30 pm., then that the ideal situation  for us to sit at mess, get relaxed,  eat slowly, and chatt non-stop 😂 As I’ve  mentioned in my first post of the hostel series #1   that there are specific timings for breakfast, lunch, tea, and dinner, so we’re  not allowed to sit in a mess after that specific  time.

After taking  classes, we rush towards  the canteen for a slush. The only thing  I prefer having in this hot weather and hectic, and tiring day is a cold slush especially with the  blueberry and black current mixed; It’s so yummy. I like lychee too. After that, we come to hostel for a lunch, take bath, get fresh, do prayer, and go to sleep till 4 p.m. At 4 p.m. we co.e again come to mess  for tea and snacks. This time, while I’m  having a tea, is my most favourite  part of the day. After having tea, we do our assignment, and whatever  work we have and after dinner at 8 pm. we chill and relax. We play games, do chatt with  our seniors, do prayer, set alarm,  ad go to sleep till 6 a.m.

My Hostel Routine. #hostel life 1

          HOSTEL SERIES, #2:

The most boring time of the day in a hostel is after 8:00 pm. There is no one around you who is actually yours: your mother, father, siblings, childhood friends, there is no one to make you laugh, or encourage you to get up and relax. No one cares about you and your emotions. You have to live entirely and wholly on your own without  the supervision of any elder (except the hostel coordinator). You will  not see your mother holding a cup of tea for you and rushing here and  there to make sure you eat well and drink well; there’s no one to look after you or protect  you from the *evils* except  Almighty, there’s no one standing  outside  a door, waiting for you to come back from college, there’s no one to ask you, ‘how was your day?’, there’s  no one to see your face and ask you, ‘Is everything ok? Why are you looking  upset?’, there’s no one to ask you, ‘Why  did you eat less? Do you need one more chapatti or some more rice or curry?’ In a nutshell, you are of no value for anyone except you and your family. Everyone cares  about  themselves which is fair enough. It is what  it is.!

Hostel transforms the personality of a person. It changes you to a whole new level. You  get to meet different  people from different  backgrounds and with different  mindsets. It’s  very difficult  to get adjust in such environment especially  when  your  guardians are not there around you  all the time. That’s  when a person learns to be strong, independent, and smart. As a hostelite, you  face a lot of problems, sometimes which are not explainable but gradually, with time you not only  learn to deal with such problems but become prone to such problems.

Hostel Life.#1

Hostel life is probably the best time you spend in your life. You get to learn a totally new aspect of your life. I never knew  what  it would be like living in a hostel, sharing  room with strangers, eating food on specific time, and studying  with all the mess in mind. But the experience  I  had so far is good. It all happened  because of the friendly environment  and kind and caring seniors who made us calm and helped  us to get adjust in a hostel.
Every night, they sit around a fountain in the garden outside our room with  cups of tea and biscuits, and share their  stories that how much time they took to get adjust. They motivate us through their experiences. We’re lucky we get the best seniors. Then we play ludo, ono and play the music. That’s  how our time pass in a hostel help us to get out of the serious boredom attacks we get especially at night after 8 pm.That’s  when our seniors help us to feel homely atmosphere.
But the best thing about being a hostelite is that a person becomes disciplined  and responsible since you have to do everything  on your own from waking up at an alarm to eating , sleeping, and studying  at specific times. This everyday practice makes a person perfect.
As of our routine so here it is: We wake up at 6, since the breakfast’s timing is from 7 to 8. Then we rush to our rooms to get dressed  and go to attend classes at least five minutes before the class as corridors are so confusing; every department  is same constructed with red bricks, so it takes time to actually get to the ‘right’ class. 😀 After attending a class, we manage our time as to come back  to the hostel  for lunch since its timing is from 12:30 pm. to 2:30 pm. Mostly our classes end at 11 am. 2:30 pm or 4 pm. Then we come back to our rooms, get fresh, take bath, do prayer, and take a nap. At 4 pm. we go to mess for tea and snacks. This is the best time since I get to have tea and get relaxed. 😁 At 4:30 we leave the mess and go out to the lush green grounds with beautiful emerald green trees for a walk. In doing  so, we chatt and gossip. Thus, after this serious  session of gossiping, we come back to our hostel room, do prayer, make assignment if any, do video call or a voice call to our families and then get relaxed and wander in  corridors, go to senior’s rooms, do chatt, and come back to a mess at 7 pm for a dinner. At 8 pm.we go to our hostel coordinator’s office for our attendance. After 8:10 we become  free to chill and relax.
