*Green with envy*

I am so *so* jealous of my friend. He's off in Pune enjoying himself like crazy. He didn't get into the college of his choice here in Mumbai, so he decided to pursue his Bachelors in Mass Media in Pune. That by itself is nothing to be envious about. This is. He's living in an apartment which he rented with three of his classmates. It might not seem like such a big deal to those of you who are accustomed to this sort of thing, but me, I've never lived anywhere except Mumbai within the comforts (confines?) of my own home. His roommates hail from far flung places like Surat, Chennai and Delhi. Since their classes haven't started yet, they stay awake all night, talking and spend the day exploring the city and eating out at cheap restaurants. They're broke college students. What else did you expect?And here I am, studying BMM in a college that is apparently considered the Bombay IIT of BMM colleges. Which is to say, it's a pretty damn good college. It has always been a dream that I would study Mass Media in this college and I'm finally on my way to fulfilling my dream. And I'm miserable! I love the classes, don't get me wrong. It's just the people I can't stand. Most of them are townies or at least behave like they are. Townies is a term synonymous with people living in South Mumbai and they are generally considered to be class A snobs. So, obviously, these people are not my type of people. Then there's the nicer lot of people in my class. They are sweet and simple and everything. But I have the feeling they are too simple for my liking. They seem to like studying (oh, the travesty!) and refuse to bunk lectures even to watch Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na! A movie that I'm so desperate to watch that I'm ready to sit in the theatre all by myself without feeling the slightest trace of embarrassment. So, basically, neither of these people are my type of people! I just drift in and out of class smiling and being all nice while I'm cringing on the inside. And my friend has already made a bunch of friends. His classes haven't even begun! I would so trade places with him in a heartbeat.

i can understand. I've never lived away from home either. It can get a little suffocating at times. As for your college and classmates, have u just entered college? I faced the same problem in 1st year

Well, technically, I've already had the college experience. In Mumbai we have junior college for 11th and 12th which is pretty much the same as degree college.. so yeah. But I was pretty comfy back in junior college. It is BMM I have a problem with. *sigh*

Don't worry. When you get your degree and get some cash you can travel to anywhere you want to.

WOW DELHITE in Pune/MAHARASHTRA?Damn you delhites!! Stick to the better cities than going to just "any state" :D!
I would so so love to live on my own too but then again living with others also depends on how much you get along with them,right?So if you don't get along well with people in your BMM class then if you had to share an apartment with them,wouldn't that be even more miserable?(miserable-r :p)
As for people in your class,you need to be less judgmental about them.You can't expect a class full of people preferring to eat jumbo king's vada pav,tibbs churchgate's frankie,watching movies like jaane tu ya jaane na(which is well great! lol),talking random things on random funny topics,talking about LS actors(read Ranbir Kapoor,AB Jr,Imran Khan,Johnny Depp,Siddharth :D).
So well different people,different choice.

@speak in doodles yeah. That's what I'm hoping for

@tanuj I don't expect a class full of people to gimme company in all my keedas. Just one person would do. Until I find such a person, I hate BMM!
