During last year of my under-graduation, I am standing at a crossroad of my life, dubious about whether I should go for higher studies or join some software company. In that discreet moment I decided to join CAT coaching classes, fill out the GATE Examination form, even I also thought of doing the M.S. . I also want to do nothing and enjoy the final year of my college with my friends. All these thoughts entangled in my brain and I was not in any position to decide anything. In midst of all these Oracle came to our campus and I decided to take the job and then decide with some peace in my mind about what to do after the college. But all of my plans were toppled from my mind as soon as I got the news that I got placed in Oracle. This news acted like the catalyst, and I became the person who just wants to enjoy rest of the college time. I stifled yawns during the lectures, which I had to attend as attendance is compulsory and my final motive is to just score descent marks in exams so that Oracle would not throw me out due to my less CGPA. I became adamant in my refusal to change my mind to leave the job and go for higher studies. Due to my hard-nosed attitude I bunked the GATE Examination, and throw away the idea of CAT . I completed my under-graduation and enjoyed every second of my remaining time in college. This leads me to the present day, I am now Software developer at Oracle and enjoying every second of my work here. After a a hardheaded judgment I finally decided to stay in Oracle for few more years, analyze my options and then do the M.S. to provide the necessary acceleration to my career.
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
