You can no longer eat whatever you wish without putting on weight. You are not invited for weekend cricket matches .
Every Aunty you meet asks “Shaad…i kab kar rahe ho beta!!” while uncle asks “Career ka kya socha hai beta…”.
When the reality is that you are just riding the wave and going with the flow.
You have all the confidence in the world but little achievements to show, You already have the first hand experience of life , You know that whatever you have been taught about the world in school has been sheer waste of time.
You can be denied a job even after passing the test and you could be given a job if you know someone placed high enough… Politics till now was a dirty word but now you feel it everywhere.
You know now love is not that blind and that friendship has its terms and conditions. .You know there is nothing for granted and free lunches are not free. Your overconfidence is now making way for a humble conscience. .
You now know it is not exactly what we thought it would be..
