10 Kinds of People You are Destined to Meet in University
– Rabiya Shahab
The four years of fulfilled education at University is said to be the best time of anyone’s life. It is the time when people are face to face with life’s challenges and get to meet exciting (Oh really?) new people.
University life is a tremendous journey filled with ambition, hope, achievement, tranquility, failure, friendship and trust. It is the time when people find their soul mates… wait, hold your horses! By soul mates we mean best friends. People at this time truly connect; there begins a remarkable journey which will bring great amount of happiness, frustration, anxiety and well – everything in between. When it all begins, we are told that these four years are going to decide what will be our future. They are tuned to work hard to achieve their goal whether its 3.5 GPA, a scholarship, a boyfriend etc., therefore I am going to point out the various kinds of people or technically students one might encounter during the glorious University years.
- The lazy toad
These type of fellow mates are easy to find, they are lethargic towards every single thing be it a new assignment or a project presentation. They even walk as if dragging their energy less bodies is the biggest task for them on this planet.
- The narcissistic clan
The ones you should not cross path with, these are the self-appraising species. They love to gloat about their achievements and even if they don’t they consider themselves some sort of higher power and beware mortals! So beware, for they may squash you with their ginormous list of qualifications.
- The wannabe
These are the ones everybody dislikes! They are like this vicious creatures that could do anything to be a part of the wrong crowd. I mean come on! Be with the ones you connect, people!
- The sharafat ki misaal ( who in actual are totally meesnay)
Oh, these are the cleverest of them all, the coy fox with that placid face and deep eyes that observe every inch of heavenly bodies around them. They know everything; they are the devil’s whisperers. They may seem sweet and innocent but they are the worst enemies one could ever hope for. The master of poker face pa-pa-pa poker face pa-pa poker face!
- The nerd
The lame old clichéd nerd of every class, Oh! Boo-hoo. They are like born to be buried in their books. They seem to know anything and want to know everything. The only thing they love is stuffing their minds with everything they read. You can find them at the front bench of class, behind thick-rimmed glasses.
- The buff
These are the people who seem to love working out. I mean okay we get it, you like to buff up but come on at least remember you’re supposed to go to University and maybe not sit in the front row of class for a change! How are we supposed to look at the board dude?
- The “high” crowd
For those of you who are not aware of this term, high-crowd means people who have the audacity to show up for class completely high on drugs or in some severe cases with a vicious hangover. They always love sit at the back and enjoy the last moments of their high. They often wear shades so as to cover their shame. But hey, at least they don’t cause any sort of problem ( but they might just if they ask you to take a hit, don’t be polite!)
- The we-are-too-cool-to-talk-to-you clan
This comprises of all the so called fashion-divas or hunks who love to shop till they drop. Wherever they set their foot, that becomes their ‘jageer’. Marking territories runs in their family, you see. Don’t ever dare to sit at their place (read: throne).
- The nalaiq clan but they never fail!
These are my favourite as this type are abundant. These are those courageous warriors who waste around the entire year and know nothing about the course. But the funny part is majority of them pass the exam with sheer luck and cuz they are smartass. Aur naqal ke liye bhi aqal chahiye. They are the leaders of ‘ chappa clan’ . They sure can grow up to be amazing con-artists.
- The TC ( aka- teacher ka chamcha)
Lastly, this is the most annoying group that everybody hates. The teacher’s pets. They are just one step away from licking their boots. Anything for grades *eye roll*. They literally become a walking talking ‘tareef ka pitara’. To them their entire time with the teacher is based on the evaluation of her red lipstick, her new khaadi ka jora or her so-not-soothing voice.
However as annoying they may be, a class is incomplete without any of them. So just have some courage and pray to lord to have mercy on you these four years of University.
