I was being interviewed for getting admission in a MBA college and as expected was sweating bullets. It is a well known fact that for these MBA interviews you should be well versed in the current affairs and market scenarios and economics and other such stuff (huh!). Now I am more of a read-Sydney-Sheldon-John-Grisham kind of a girl rather than read-Economic-Times-The-Hindu. Needless to say my CA and GK was not up to the mark, hence the nervousness.
Fortunately for me after the customary HR questions and few budget related questions the interviewer asked me about my interests. I said writing short stories and poems, as that was what I had mentioned in my resume. So he asked me if I’d be able to write a poem on the spot. I replied yes and came up with this poem-
They said I can’t
So I did
They said I shouldn’t
Yet I did
They said a lot of things to me
I didn’t listen to them at all
Did what I had to do
Didn’t give them a chance to see me fall..
He seemed impressed with my poem and I was happy with my effort. It felt good.
I didn’t convert the call.
Thinking back to that situation I realized that my poems are just that, poems. I don’t follow what I’ve written. So today I opened my laptop and did what they had said I shouldn’t have done. I started this blog.
No, it is not a waste of time. Yes, I love writing. No, i don’t care how many people read this. Yes, I am doing this for myself.
LoneGirlStanding is my expression of what it feels like to be a lone wolf in today’s society. I can’t ignore others, but I can be my own self. So I will.
P.S. I got admission in a much better college. So that’s that 😉
