At sea

All animals, except man, know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it – Samuel Butler

While I am not able to do any work on the academic front for lack of any incentive, I am also not able to fully enjoy myself because every event/ instance of pleasure seeking brings with it a tinge of guilt. Because the principal business of our lives is no longer to enjoy it. It is but to work.

All that one needs to learn is better learnt before seventh term. Eighth term is for being confused because there are too many things to do. It is the term to really disentangle oneself from the academic mindset. It is the time to get a little rugged to face the world outside the school, where hard decisions need to be made. Where the downside for erring or being lazy is not a B grade, but far more critical consequences.

Btw, Dubya came, he interacted, he conquered. Mr President was quite different from what is usually seen/shown on TV. That is all incidental. What was of consequence was ISB became even more famous. He served our purpose.

PS: People who are in the race for place in Dean’s List continue to study hard.
