Not just another new year

"Shubho noboborsho" to everyone. To me also. As the title says this new year is literally going to be a new one for me, probably for the first time in my life.

It's been all the same before, from one class to another, from one semester to the other, but this time, from one life to other. Yes, my student life is probably going to be over or going to have a big pause for the moment and professional life will take over soon.

I'm not going to say that this change is all of a sudden. Yes it was evident, inevitable. Of all the years I've passed, I've always wanted to grow up, like everybody I guess. And now is the time when I say I don't want. I really don't.

It was the story of every class. I knew there's no turning back of time. Accepting the fact, I always wanted to get over with it quickly. But the story never changed. It was always easier in the last class or the class before that. But this time when I know for sure that there will be no attending of classes, studying for pass, no threat from exams, I am afraid to step in. I want to go back. Go back to the the life of being a student, enjoying the times with my friends and family. I am afraid of bearing the responsibility that's going to be vested upon me pretty soon.

I was never afraid of anything. Believe me anything in my life (Omit the case before DEPT exam, when I was pretty much sure that i was going to fail for the first time in my life, second time if you consider 'drawing' as a subject in class 6. Fortunately that didn't happen, god bless sarwar sir.). But "the funniest dude" of my friends, "the coolest boro bhai" of my juniors, "most carefree person" in my family is now a little bit concerned. How will be the next life?

The change I first noticed on 12th April '07. After I made my CV (If you are looking for a software engineer, mail me [shafi@csebuet.org] for my CV.) . So I can split life into "before making the CV" and "life after it". Relisource, a renowned software company, is coming to BUET for campus recruitment. So, finally, I made my resume with a wish of fulfilling my long cherished dream of a career as a software engineer. It'll be very tough, as almost all of my classmates are going to fight for a position for there. But that's not a problem, competition is everywhere nowadays. But after I made my CV, certain things that weren't with me ever, have captured my thoughts. Evil thoughts like worry, anxiety! I wish I could remain the same as I was before...

So many things have left to do, can I restart my life?
