I am starting to think that there isn't much of a difference between the personalities of a 9 year-old and a 19 year-old.
What..don't agree with me?
A 9 year-old cries when someone snatches away his precious Pokemon figurines/cards while a 19 year-old cries when his parents get his net connection cut off.
A 9 year-old dreams of possessing a cool-looking bicycle while a 19 year-old fantasizes about the coolest new cell-phone.
A 9 year-old thinks his class teacher is his worst enemy.A 19 year-old thinks any college professor who sets the class any homework for the weekend is the 'crappiest teacher ever'.
See....there's hardly any difference.People of both age groups are KIDS.Or maybe,I'd say, a 19 year-old possesses more childish character traits than a 9 year-old.
In fact in some cases a 9 year-old is capable of showing more maturity than a 19 year-old.(if a 19 year-old possesses any maturity to begin with)
Atleast they know it's their duty to go to school and finish their homework on time.While we think it's perfectly normal to stay up till late,wake up late,skip college and go to the mall instead.
The next time I'm in a situation where I have to watch over someone's kid I'd think twice before scolding him/her too harshly.
I donno whether it's a common syndrome plaguing all college students or engineering students in particular-but we never study..atleast not before the exams are like a coupla weeks away.And then we sit and shed tears(not literally though....or maybe we do) and ask ourselves 'Why oh why didn't I study throughout the sem?Everything woulda been so much easier then.'And we'd vow to keep ourselves updated with the syllabus from the next sem.
Now repeat the same sequence of events for the next sem and so on..
It's a never-ending cycle.
And WE are supposed to be responsible young adults who are the future of this nation.
God or someone else...please save our nation!
