It’s been quite a while since I sat down to write any content. I’ve been uber busy with some stuff, some personal, others not so personal. I wrote an exam, visited friends and I’m currently taking a gap year after college.
For those of you that are a bit confused by my previous statement, allow me to explain.
A gap year is basically a year-long break between either high school and college or undergraduate and grad school. Basically, in my country, it’s mandatory for every college graduate to go through this youth service scheme where you take a break and serve your country. I don’t mean like fight in battle or anything of that sort. I mean like learn about the culture and heritage of it, meet people from the different states and learn to work with them. Once you’re done with college, you apply for the scheme and the government gets to post you to whatever part of the country, where you will be spending the next one year of your life. So yes, very basic, but not so basic.
Tbh, I wasn’t very excited about it. The thought of changing environments and comfort zones isn’t one that I absolutely appreciate. In fact I dreaded it. The first month, you have to stay in a state ‘camp’ with about 2000 other college grads from all over the country. It’s supposedly the most fun part of the whole program, but I didn’t like it very much. We had a very regimented routine everyday. We had to wear uniforms and listen to boring 5 hour lectures on values and history. Talk about punishment.
Then we had to participate in drills and march like soldiers. It was not pretty. But after a while, I kind of figured it was better to enjoy it than get dragged around sore and sad. So I decided to make friends and it even turns out, I’m a pretty good ‘marcher’ (is that even word 😄). Anyways, I’ll be spending the next 10-11 months working in the designated office that the government gave me, and doing community service 😑😑.
But don’t be sad, I have some pictures that ought to cheer you up. Here is a summary of how the last month went down for me (in pic form!!). Ps: my insta fam may or may not already have a heads up in this info, but you know I have a soft spot WP fam. Some of these pics are super exclusive (and a bit embarrassing, but what the heck 😁)
That’s it you guys!!
