It has been over 3 months since the start of the school and now just under 6 months are left for the start of the summer break when most of us are supposed to do our internships. 6 months seem to be long time, however, trust me as I have heard from every one over here, those 6 months pass by quickly. As I think about that, I realize that coming months are going to be very crucial as I continue to search for internships for myself. So far, I admit, things have progressed really slowly for me and for which I have myself to blame and no one else. Honestly, during last 3 months, I have seesawed with my decisions. When you’re at a great place such as Purdue with such a talented faculty and the student body, you get really influenced and start dreaming about stuff you can do that previously you never had thought about. For example, interacting with people out here and from my own research, I realized that Krannert is regarded as phenomenal on Ops side and so soon I joined the Ops bandwagon planning to major in Ops. What first sounded like a logical idea to capitalize on the school’s strength soon turned into a major dissatisfaction for me as I couldn’t justify my decision to my tech savvy and entrepreneurial inner self. After few rounds of self-introspection, I finally swung back to the starting point, that is, what I had in mind before I came to Purdue. Hopefully, the plan will work though it will take a lot of patience from my side. However, I know somewhere in far future I won’t regret this decision because I know this decision is what my heart wants and I will succeed no matter what.
Concluding with a quote from Bhagwad Gita …
“On action alone be thy interest,
Never on its fruits. Let not the fruits of action be thy motive, Nor be thy attachment to inaction.”
