And life gave me lemons!

Late night my phone rang.. and t'was one of my classmates....I dun usually pick up calls late night but I just happened to pick his call...

"heyy are you upset"
no why? what happened?
"result is declared yaar"
did u check mine?
"yeahh u got less yaar oly 72%"


I juss cut off the call I cudn't spk up...tears welled up...I went to dad who was online..and told him to chk my result...
I found that I'd not only got less marks from my last yr's record but also from many of my other classmates and also no rank in the branch...

and I cried...
I nevaa expected this...I dunno who the hell checked my papers...I guess he doesn't understand cursive

Just becos I ddn't fill up more pages and wrote point to point answers I got such low marks..

What the hell...these gals who told me tey'd fail hav nw got abt 80% they copied from me am sure.

all my frnds will fool me :( my teachers wud not value me nw :(


I want re checking.. am gonna sue the university....damn what a stupid university am I in...


Dad : SToppppppppppp that ! stop criticizing...
stop criticizing...stop doing that....face it...something gives u pain face it...bear with it...dun blame anybody else...it's just u responsible for ur marks...no one else none at all....

~Daddy but i just cn't get such low marks I just cn't i did so bloody well I ws expecting to top...
Ok i ddn't work much bt i do understand things...

dad: Intelligence is overrated....stop being over confident abt it....and giving it too much importance... PERSISTENCE is the word! one last yr of collg....try that...

n thank God for giving u an opportunity to change before u complete the grad..and u still have a lot of time to do well in the final yr...
u r gonna do it next time !!!!


cudn't sleep all night...
but then...I faced it...the crude reality....
am I down in the dumps??
NO WAY!!

I am gonna make lemonade outaa the lemons :P

This should only spur you to greater efforts and get the best grade in the finals.Some overtake while we travel by road and we get caught in signals but what matters is who reaches the destination first and at what speed.As your dad said it is the final grad exam that would determine your effort.All the best,Priya

It happens to everyone of us. Some people crumble under it, while some rise victorious. Be a fighter, girl!

"He who deserves shall be crowned. The best is awaiting you. Go ahead and achieve it."

Life's battles don't always go to the stronger or faster man; But, sooner or later, the man who wins is the fellow who thinks he can!

I wish I could learn this lesson in its true sense.

Tulika said...

Hey Priya !

You ll be doing fine next time. In fact these stepping stones will make you stronger. Be confident. And yes, there a lot of lemons there. Stir up everything well.

Best wishes..!

Chill dear.... If you do all the good things in ur college life, u will not have much to talk and make fun abt after few years... So, its sometimes good to goof up in the viva, screw up few of the exams...Enjoy the college life :)

Try your best next time and patch up for low marks of this year.. At the end of the day, its ur interest which matters more than the university certificate :)

Mere saath aise bahuth time huva hain re.. and i know how it feels... it feels like the world u built coming down... But its just for a few days...

Your dad is right. Maybe God is teaching you something with this incident. One can never be so sure of herself. We must rely on God's grace after we have done our part. Cheer up. There is always a tomorrow to make up for whatever we did not achieve. The important thing is we try again until we succeed. Thanks for the post. God bless you always my young friend.

Ria said...

Samvedna said...

Like your dad said..persistance is the key.

pri said...

well, it sucks i know..but like u said, no other choice but lemonade..

or the other option which i usually prefer is squirting the lemon in life's eyes by gearing up and putting in more effort the next exam.

god luck with it! :)

NO WAY .. stand up and walk tall is my answer ,
I failed once in my exams but that did not stop me from achieving whatever i have achieved ..

these things happen to test us and people who shrug off such hiicups , stand up, and work harder next time are the ones who succeed so GET UP...
