Moving won’t necessarily mean running away. But, yeah, I’ve moved a lot.
It was a complete roller coaster. But I was liking “moving from one place” and “catching another”.
Till date, I never completed a single thing that I started.…i.e. of course apart from my school and Diploma.
When I was a small kid I joined the classical dancing classes (or should I say “was put” in those classes) I went there most unwillingly for 2 years. Appeared for it’s 2 exams. But, then the teacher said that to give the third one should have completed 12 years of age. I was 10. So, I had to give up that for one year. And I never really reminded ma of those classes after 1 year. And till today never went to that thing back!
I was a little bigger (of course by age) Mum & Dad put me in swimming class. Now, I don’t have hydrophobia. But getting up at 5:30; coming back at 6:30 and then attending school 7 am to 1 pm was not at all appealing. So after 1 or 2 years I gave that up. The reason why I don’t join swimming even today is still unknown to me!
After that I joined the classical music classes. Which was again mostly because Dad loves classical music and Ma forced me and a friend of mine (who apparently happens to be with me in every single class that I’ve joined till today….well not all, but most) to do so. *I know she won’t disagree on this* Well again here I gave the third exam, BUT this time, the teacher moved. Nah! Don’t make a wrong guess. She wasn’t bored of us. She was getting married and so she had to move to a new place, which we considered to be a very long distance to be covered on bicycles.
There are much more small things that I started and I gave up.
Sometimes due to my own ignorance, lack of interest and the other times due to some more convincing reasons.
Giving up after starting something is the un-coolest thing I’ve ever done.
3 years back, when I was 15, I started learning Japanese Language.
This time, it was due to my own interest. Meaning to say, I actually found out that class and did all the inquiry process. The fees were reasonable and the class well within a short distance from my home.
I joined them. And I admit proudly that in a batch of 60 students, I was among the “only 3 who passed”. That was an achievement.
But, here’s the climax, after being so good at it, I again gave up.
For obviously some genuine reasons!
3-4 days back, I resolved to complete this.
This time I want to do it no matter what. I joined the class.
And this is my current schedule…
9 to 5 College. 6 to 8 Japanese class. 8 to 9 Maths class.
I am practically RUNNING between all these places …well not actually running on my ‘legs’ but on my two wheels.
