Fun, friends, unforgettable laughter, unrequited love stories, unattended lectures and memories for a lifetime, these words will definitely sum up everyone’s college life. But amidst of all this when studies interrupted, we were nothing but forced to think about our dear professors. So, with three cheers here’s to the ones who made classrooms memorable in their own peculiar way!
- Sarcasm is what I serve!
I am sure we all had that one professor who would scold us subtly and sarcastically. This one got mimicked the most. The smart ones would not just pick up the value from his lectures but would also learn some sugar-coated and not-so-obvious ways of insulting others. Isn’t it!
But you got to secondhand me on this that each time they scolded us, it would start like a trail of confusions till we finally realize that our a** is getting barbecued super-nicely.
- Punctuality is my religion
Here goes their pet statement, “If you cannot come to the class on time, don’t come at all”. Like seriously, these guys would not spare you even if you are 1 millisecond late. And the worst part is that there lecture is always in the early morning block. So, I never risked and went running, empty stomach to his classes to avoid being late. But guess who was late? HIM.
3. Do you remember his name?
There is always this one professor (in some cases more than one) whose name is forgotten by all. Instead, everyone ritualistically calls him by the nick name that was assigned to him years ago by unknown super seniors. And if someone by mistake mutters out the original name, he would receive nothing but the shocked glances like, “who are you talking about?”
Moreover, here’s an inside story, these professors are well aware of their nickname too but you know, they have made their peace with it.
- I hate you…Like I love you
Here’s an ode to all those professors who were just too good with their subject. But at the same time, they would just not let us breathe. These are the ones who would not understand that their subject is not the only one that we have.
But, they are always so precise and articulated in their assignment sheets and would give such value lectures that hating them would be so damn unfair. But mind you, they totally lack human emotions and definitely have favorites. So as soon as you decide on giving them nasty reviews at the end of the semester, you just can’t because they taught you so damn well.
Phew! Just can’t control my thoughts from swaying in either direction. Well, I can’t decide whether to love them or hate them. Can you?
- He has it all (literally all)
And finally enters the “topper” of the lot, the apple of our eye, and every girl’s dream, Mr. Smarty-Pants. Their vibe is their asset, every girl drools over them and they just make the class feel so interesting. He is cool, understands that you have a lot of burdens, comes down to your level to explain concepts and loves his job. OH! And how can I forget that untamed charm.
They have put with all our shit, late submissions, absenteeism and lack of responsibility but it’s all because of them that we have reached where we are today. So, THANK YOU.
