Follow your Dreams, they know the way


 Write about a real or imagined High school reunion. Did it / your classmates live up to your expectations?

Truth be told, none of us has lived to the expectations.

The top scorers, teacher’s pet, favourites of staff, all-rounders and extremely brilliant students can sometimes land up in boring, unrewarding jobs and be called ” losers”.

The “never attended a single class” and ” barely passed” are working as Leaders and Managers, running their own business and making everyone else proud.

I was the perfect ” nobody” in college. My professors would not even remember my name yet I am the only one in my entire batch of English Honours who ended up being a Writer!

My life has always been a roller coaster. I have an academic record of always landing in top 5 students of the class. None of it helped me crack my first interview.I failed in cracking one of the toughest competitive exams for 2 marks, I considered myself a failure after my second attempt, what I didn’t know was that my calling was to write books.


I had lost faith in myself when they laughed at me, today is the day they follow my footsteps.

The ones who screamed to the world that I was good for nothing now swear in my name, tell the world proudly that – She is my friend and I always knew she would make something of herself one day.

There’s no stopping you when you believe in yourself.

I realised quite late in life that rat race, competitive exams and 9 to 5 jobs are not for me. I started working during my college vacations and continued for 5 years, jumping from one job to another, restless and eager, unsatisfied and disillusioned with the idea of working for someone else’s dream. I read somewhere –


I’ve made my teachers, family and friends proud already for choosing a path less travelled and the journey has just begun 🙂

  1. That is so true! With time things change. People who were succesful once may fail and vice versa. It is good that you chose to follow your dream of being a writer. All the best! Hope I am able to follow my dreams too!

  2. Isn’t it interesting how you can never tell what life holds? I now wish I had written on this prompt because like you, I was a ‘nobody’ in my psychology cohort. Now, I’m the only one from my Bachelors who is practising clinically. Others have chosen either a teaching route, a different career path or have just chosen not to work at all. And I was the one who the professors didn’t think would really amount to anything! 🙂 Funny how life turns out. The education system sucks. Honest. Thanks for linking up! 🙂
