P’s and Q’s

I was talking to a friend and for some odd reason I sensed that they have achieved a lot in the course of their lives but it was weird for them to talk about it or even celebrate it. And in my thought process I also found out that there are things about myself that…

Learning curves too

So the much anticipated results from learning curves¬†finally came. What I can say is that it was anti-climatic on many levels. For one I did not get the grade I wanted –¬† I mean who does not want the top most marks right? Secondly I did not know how the marks I got were arrived…

No Apologies Needed

You have no responsibility to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish. I have no responsibility to be like they expect me to be. It’s their mistake, not my failing.
