Ok. Enough. One gotta do what one gotta do.
OMG!! This man is teaching the stuff we have already read in the undergraduate level.
Stare outside the door. Look at watch. 45 mins more.
Shit!! Never took notes in B.E. lectures. How can I take now? Ok. Its better to scribble than doze off while sitting on first bench.
Yawn!! Stare outside the door then watch. 30 mins more.
Ok…dont slide. Sit up straight and don’t rest your cheek on your palm.
Hmmm…he colors his remaining hair with henna. Would he look better and less “scarecrowish” with white hair? Does his wife put henna on his hair?
Damn! Come back to reality, girl before the grouch catches you with a faraway look in your eyes.
Scribble. Scribble. Ohh a diagram!! Ummm…it must be there in the book. Skip it. Scribble. Scribble.
Shit!! The girl sitting next to me must be aghast at my scrawly handwriting. In next class I must sit alone in 2nd or 3rd row to be atleast able to write a post in my copy while looking attentive.
Stare outside the door. Smile at colleagues passing through the corridor. Look at watch. 20 mins more.
Ok. Must do something to get these last 20 mins over fast. I know why he has drawn the diagram like that but why not ask a doubt to show I’ve been paying undivided attention?
Raise voice, stand up and ask. DAMN!! He’s hard of hearing and is coming towards my bench. Shit!! I’ve not drawn the diagram about which I’m asking doubt. Ok..hurriedly point towards the one on the blackboard and repeat question.
Hmmm..blah blah..he is giving some explanation.
Nod head wisely. Nod. Nod.
Ahhh..10 mins more. Ohh he has some other class and is leaving early. Yipppee!!! Yeyy!! Yahoooo!
DAY 1 of M.E. 1st semester over. These were my activities and my thoughts running through the mind during a 1 hr class.
