11 Things Law School Taught Me

College life is tough. And it is way beyond crazy if you are in a law school. I am in a law school and my life is crazy. Believe it or not, only one year of college has taught me more than 14 years of school.
So here is a list of things to help you peeps.




1. LIFE IS NOT FAIR
To be honest, I was really disheartened after the CLAT 2013 results came out. People who had a very bad rank got a better college than me because of 'Reservation' *sings in a glorious voice*. It was not fair. I deserved better. But who ever said life was fair. There will be many times like this one. I've learnt not to get disheartened and keep on working towards what I love.



2. EVERYTHING IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS
Never ever take something or someone on face value. You, my dear friend are going to be fooled. Your life won't solve the puzzles for you. You have to rescue yourself. Therefore check, recheck and repeat this process three more times to ensure your safety.

3. CHOOSE FRIENDS REALLY WISELY
Alexander Pope has remarked that "Histories are more full of examples of the fidelity of dogs than of friends." In this age where everyone is running to get ahead, people do and will keep on betraying others. A bad company will definitely destroy you, your dreams, your confidence and self-respect. And we sure as hell don't want that.
Talk to everyone nicely but choose wisely the person you wish to share your secrets with.

4. CONTROL YOUR TEMPER
This shizz is important. Why? My ex-roommate was, well crueler than Cruella De'vil. She mentally tortured me. And had I not kept calm (I don't know how I did that), I would've smacked her. Smacked her so hard that her next generations would've been born with the mark (and Barney Stinson and Marshall Erricsson jokes would've followed). And I would have ended outside the college. So unless you want to have a hard time, keep you stuff together.

5. SISTERS BEFORE MISTERS(applies to girls reading this)
Now this one I really like.
Sisters before misters,
Hoes before bros.
I'm so sorry
But that's the way it goes.
You stay with them 24/7. Literally.They will stay by my side come what may. In all Projects, presentations, submissions, hangovers and boring classes. I know they will love me in all my drunken brokenness and will happily glue the pieces together with all the love that they have.
They'll be with you when you are making fun of someone or when you are going through a rough patch.
Someone told me that a man can tell you that everything will be okay. But not the way a woman can.

I'm sorry Saradda! :*
6. STUDYING IS IMPORTANT
If you want to study in Oxford/Cambridge/NYU after your graduation, you better pick up those modules and books.
Contracts in the morning with Dhaggu

The contracts storm!

7. NO ROMEO-JULIET PLEASE
And no Laila-Majnu as well.
I don't want to be stuck with a person for the remaining four years of the course. No. Na-uh. Nopes.


Yess! Also because:
a) I LOVE MY SLUMBER TIME
I haven't slept for more than 5 hours a day(except during exam time) for a year now. Why? Because I'm in a law school. I'd rather sleep for the meager hours I am free rather than say 'Aur Batao. What else?' endlessly for 4 hours, till the sun rises. Like seriously WTF?
b) I LOVE MY SANITY
Yes. I love whatever's left of it.
c) Refer point 5. SISTERS BEFORE MISTERS.

8. EXPERIENCE, EXPOSURE AND TRAVEL
This is what you need to groom yourself and become better day by day. It requires dedication to build a pleasing and charming personality. And these things help you grow and groom yourself.
I'm still working on Yashasvi Raghuvanshi.

9. PROCRASTINATION IS EASY
Working is hard. Do I need to say anything else?

10. BITE ONLY WHAT YOU CAN CHEW
Aim for one thing that you love and do it perfectly and to the best of your ability rather than juggling a million things and then finally get no result out of them.
My father told me this quite often. I only understood it after I started college.

एकै साधै सब सधै। सब साधे सब जाए।
"Set your mind to one goal and you will achieve it. Set your mind to a lot of things and you will accomplish nothing."

11. YOU ARE STRONG
After being tortured by ex-roomie, bitching, stupid arguements and misunderstandings and 'Bitch War' (A new and special term invented by a brainless retard), scared by exams and question papers, marred by grades and being endlessly tortured by teachers, I have survived 365 days of a crazy law school life.
I promise myself that I will be strong and I will always stand for the true values and for my passions.

Love always,
Raghuvanshi

P.S.: Ahem! ahem!I will soon be adding a 12th and 13th point which someone just pointed out. Boy I'm not a hypocrite! :P
