I dropped onto my couch with my laptop in hand as I awaited it to boot. In 19 seconds, I was typing my password and I opened a Word Page the next thing my desktop emerged. And now all I had to do was stare. I seemed to know exactly what I would be doing after my hot shower. I had it planned as soon as the bell had rung for the Psychology lecture and stupidly, I was doing exactly what I had expected myself to do. For all I knew, I wasn't going to make it to my final year of college. The problem being I was atrociously stuck on my last and most important assignment. Forget stuck, I was absolutely blank about my first step too. I tapped my feet irritated and fed myself with more irritation at the echoing sounds that it produced across my lonely apartment. I checked the time on the left hand corner of my screen. 8:04 p.m. You can stay up til 11 for this. You might just knock on something. The dedicated part of me urged. Only the lazier side of me was a little too stronger just then. So I waited and thought. I rummaged my head for all I could. 9 People who you didn't know but made a difference in your life. It was as simple as can be. But somehow, it involved dwelling hard onto your past and reliving every obstacle mentally. Our near 50 lecturer had this twinkle in his eye when he casually announced the topic. He didn't talk much about it except for this, "I don't expect each of you to have the same kind of thoughts when you hear this. I pretty much know that each of the assignments will be written keeping in mind a different dimension. I want each of you to go ahead with this assignment the way you see it. How you present it matters for the sake of marks but little in this context. The important key is you, your thoughts and your experiences. Happy digging!" and with a wink through his thick lens spectacles, he sped off leaving a bewildered bunch of 27 students in the decent lecture hall of the campus. Knowing Narendra Sir, a few of my friends and I spent 45 minutes dissecting what he said. Surprisingly, we did end up thinking in different angles. But we all agreed on the vaguest idea that we had to go back in our memory lane. Narendra Sir wanted something out of this assignment and I could easily bet that after 2 weeks are done and we meet the deadline to submit our assignments, he would be taking us to his favourite side of the brook for a small talk. I sighed hard. Narendra Sir was just not a hateable person. So I ended up typing out the title simply to fool my brain that I was doing something. It worked and I felt so much content to see something on the plain white paper. And now for the contents? It wasn't supposed to be hard to be able to know about your life. But there was something that made it harder than browsing the library and googling online. I gave up realizing that I was ignoring my poor tummy for I had deprived it of nutrition for over 4 hours now. 2 weeks is ample time, I mused myself and then went on to make myself Maggi.
To Be Continued..
I do hope to continue this and write all the 9 instances that the protagonist is going to include in her assignment. But its my mood that matters. I don't like leaving things incomplete but I don't write if I am not upto it either. I penned in between Economics so do ignore the errors. I am a lazy soul in a way. Comments and criticism are welcome wholeheartedly.
