Meenakshi (Mcoolshi) | 1542 comments Hello people,
Hope everyone is fine and hope everyone is enjoying.
I'll have to beg your pardon for leaving in such an abrupt manner.

The journey had just begin and now I have to go
For the stream of life is no more going slow
Tis' is certainly not goodbye
trust me- time is like a will fly
I'll be back again and we'll have gala time
and have happiness which is nothing but sublime
the friends that I kept in stack
The joyous nights will be back
the blissful mornings will soon return
till then farewell coz I have no time to burn

Well...I don't want to get sentimental and don't want others to cry.Its just that I have my exams coming up and I need to take a break from goodreads.I'll be back soon.
Till then it'll be a STUdy VACation (STUVAC) for me as I have my exams soon(2-3 months).I'll miss all you dear members.I'll miss Akanksha. Smitha, Prerak, Hazel, Adz(Aditya), Divya, Dely, Cincinnatusc, Anand, Cite, Tushar, Ash, Sagar, Rengaraj....well the list will never end.I'll see you all soon.

Till then......goodbye everyone.

Reminds me of our first studay vacation of 1 month for the 10th boards. That's the first time i read Alistair McLean, and was so addicted that i continued with a bunch of other novels. And not surprisingly, English turned out to be the only subject where i crossed 90s and topped the class, or was it 2nd? Whatever!

Well, so dnt leave if u want to top or score cent in English :-P And make sure u find ur way back here and have fun, no matter how u do at the exams!

Anbu (Anbutheone) | 4466 comments All the very best for your exams meenakshi.. :-)

Meenakshi (Mcoolshi) | 1542 comments I just had my Olympiad today.It was good, I enjoyed it (I know its kind of weird to say that I enjoyed an exam!!)

Darn, you kids study too much these days. I remember spending a good portion of the week before my boards reading the Pickwick Papers.

Anyway, good luck with your exams, Meenakshi. Reading isn't always fun, as you probably have already realized :)

work! no!
In India you at least have to be a graduate to get a job.I need to study for two years in the school then apply for graduation and only then can I work.

work/job has diff connotations in diff places. In India we are interested in making a career out of every or any job dat we can get our hands on. Outside, ppl get into a job any time, even fresh out of school and work as long as it interests them or as long as it pays for the pocket money, they dnt worry abt a long term career as early in their life as we do!

At least dats wat i observed over at the States, maybe its diff in Italy. Diff perspectives work in diff places!

dely | 2790 comments Unfortunately in Italy also with the graduation there is no job. Young graduates must go a long way before finding a good job and often they must make stages without be payed or receiving only a low pay.
After the secondary school of second degree somebody begins to work but they are occasional jobs and it is not easy to find a place fixed by contract.
It is not an easy moment for who searches a job.

In order to understand better how school works here:
5 years primary school
3 years secondary school of first degree
5 years secondary school of second degree
5 years university

Meenakshi (Mcoolshi) | 1542 comments hmm..So Italy and India are quite similar if we take the education scenario
