the thing with a big campus

the walks are lovely

there are still only so many people who have a life

not everyone knows everything about anyone who’s anyone (nor is it always possible to act on anything one does)

there’s a lot of places one can go where no one ever ‘be’es

one thinks one can get away with anything

one does

word gets around, though

taking a dip in a water tank that feeds all the taps feels better than ever

one only needs to ask everyone one meets while walking along in a two minute span a question one needs answered

e.g. what is the meaning of life?

– a wig

– flip out, man

– pseud-puts?

– placement

– schroeter and litsoc trophy

no, one doesn’t hear that last as often any more

it’s more likely to be ‘counterstrike’ or’nfs carbon’ or whatever the latest gta version is

at least no one says ‘RGing’

the thing with a big campus?

it’s like any other place – one ends up with a small nook one calls home, a few people one calls family

and what one loses out on, living in a community of ten thousand and knowing less than a tenth of them, is inevitable

at some point one has to be one’s own person, live on one’s own, work from one’s own independant setup

for the impersonal sense of a luxury apartment-ish hostel, there’s the warmth of dozens of friends on the same floor

for the profit-oriented catering of the mess, there’s the familiarity of the good old hangouts just a step away

and there is the forest, the lake, the fields and skies, the rooftops… that’s just where it all begins

of course, there’s ol’ bugsy, and a whole world right outside the main gate… the city awaits

the thing with a big campus?

one has to have a bigger heart, give it a chance and it does just fine

the guy who had a lot of get up and go, got up and went

    sab kuch sahi hai, kaafi achha likha hai, par ek baat samajh mein nahin aati. yeh sab things with a big campus is ok, but kya yeh har jagah laagoo nahin hoti hain, chahe aap campus mein hon, ya is badi si duniya mein.
    and u can always ask….yeh duniya agar mil bhi jaye toh kya hai and say ki yeh duniya yeh mehfil mere kaam ki nahin. ofcourse thats very fatalistic, par kehne mein kya harz hai?
    but finally agreed. its not a big or small campus, its not a big or smaller world (as the world is supposedly becoming), par dil bada hona chahiye.
