Did She Win, Or Did I?


From the first time we met
It was a battle
She wouldn’t give in
And I wouldn’t let go
Days passed on
And years went by
The battle went on
And on for long

For nothing was at stake
Save for our own pride
It wasn’t just the thrill
Nor was it the prize
It was just us
Blinded by petty lies

We didn’t know
For what we fought
All we cared
Was who came first
And so the battle carried on
For days together
And years together

The battle was won
But the question remained
For all the pain
And all we endured
Did she win?
Or did I?

Though days had passed
And years gone by
We wondered together

Was it truly just us?
Or was it our pride?

What surprised us all,
(For we were surprised)
Is that after all those days
And years gone by,
We had not gained a thing
But each other’s side

Though the battle had been won
We did not care for loss
For enemies who had long since withered,
We became the closest of friends
What would you say then if I’d asked…
Did she win, or did I?

Morning Classes

As I write in our computer class right now, fully realising that it's not something I should actually be doing, this activity seems really fun.

So I started by getting up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Totally grumpy, very hungry and absolutely not wanting to attend class. Thus I ended up doing what people like me do in such problematic situations....I dragged my sorry ass to college, music blaring through my earphones, being able to see practically nothing (since as usual, I felt sleep deprived during the ungodly hours, early in the morning).

Ma'am seems to have run out of projects for us to work on, so the idea was to catch up on some much delayed blogging. My partner here is literally falling asleep with her chin on her palm, elbow on the table....complete with the drool act and scary hair. Believe me... in classes like this, observing her is almost like one of the most interesting activities of all time.

So what's going on in class can literally be explained in a few words:

  1. Girls gossipping about some year old controversy
  2. Election campaigning
  3. People playing games on their respective computers
  4. Majhong's background music playing somewhere as someone goes on scoring points
  5. My partner still drooling
  6. A few others actually working
  7. Farewell planning
  8. Ma'am shopping for stuff on MyntraImage result for bored in class gifs
Regular 8:30 class in the morning with practically no one doing what they are supposed to. In colleges like ours these are forbidden pleasures, dished out to us poor students only occasionally. This isn't half as bad as nodding off to sleep in some theory class. Quite pleasant for a change.

Cheers!
