Back to the Dungeon

One week at home and thats all. Barely managed to pull myself out and come to Bengaluru, for yet another of the stressful semesters. This being one of the most important as it has a big role in shaping the careers. The summer placements which require intensive preparation and with the job market down, it doesn't get tougher. So, been reading books like Hull, Roy and for the first time, reading the newspapers every single day. Resume, for a fresher is so very difficult. I had to slog it out 7 days and nights in a row to gather content worthy enough to be sent to the likes of DB and Goldman Sachs.

Well, the tempo is rising, and having sidelined the academics completely, this is time for me to pull up my socks. L square party in the back ground is not the very best of time to do the same. But been a very eventful two weeks. Been speaking to friends on a much more regular basis, not paying much attention to acads, and becoming more and more social. Much the same as what happened at IIT.

We are done with our business fest, and there is a queue of tests lined up for the next week. The motto of this sem though, seems to be to take it as it comes. Much unlike what it was the last sem, where I was prepared for it whenever it came. But thats how you live with it. Now, waiting for the shortlists to come and by God there are a couple of companies I so desperately want to get to. But time is the only way to find it out.

Right now, I am stuck in this dungeon, between the profs and the companies and the books. Hope the sandwich becomes delicious one month from now.

Signing off
Good night and Good luck
