July : A Month of Massive Changes #MondayMusings

July has been a special month for me. Not just because it is my birthday month, but because many new beginnings, many fresh starts, and many turning points of my life have happened in July. It's mid of the year when I have looked back at what the year was like for the first six months and have anticipated and dreamt about the coming six months. Goals and resolutions are reviewed in July.
These initial days of college are all about fun, making interactions, creating friendships and increasing your network. It's less on course works and assignments. So we are trying to take full advantage of it. I have made a few friends at the hostel too, most of them are my juniors, with a huge age gap. But the good news is none of us can feel this gap. We visited the Forest Research Institute this weekend. It was a good trip. I stopped at almost every tree to take a snap and posed at every corner of the museum clicking selfies. Too much beauty in a single place. Beauty overloaded.
Today I sit down and question my priorities. More than I want to admit this, I miss home. Well, more than that, I feel guilty that I chose to be so far from home. Communication and travel are a bit tedious from here. I miss the sea. Yes, you may say I want too much, the best of both the worlds, living near the hills myself. But then, that's the case. Though I am grateful for these turn of events in my life, I am also a bit guilty for thinking too much about my own self. I know not how these days would fare, where I would land after two years, and whether or not these efforts would bear fruits. The what ifs are many.
