Yes, this is the most fantabulous (if that's a word) thing I've come across on the internet. I came across this site, basically a blog by this name. Frankly, the name intrigued me and hence, prompted me to click on the site. And guess, what I discovered?
A whole blog dedicated to students who have just graduated or are about to graduate in BA with English majors. Did someone talk about right timing??? :p
Now, what does the term Liberal Arts Leftovers basically mean?
The author of the blog, who apparently is a graduate in English majors put it like this:
A Liberal Arts Leftover is someone who has mastered the set of skills necessary for the college social environment only to graduate and find themselves a freshman in life–trying to figure out new social systems not to mention professional environments.*
Yes, we graduates in English majors are fed on the idea of liberalism for complete three years (four years in some countries). Only to be left completely clueless and Jobless (mind it) in a not so liberal professional world. Thus, we are the leftovers who can bullshit their way through anything and feel proud of their degrees (like I do) no matter what! Yes, we feel accomplished to be the Liberal Arts Leftovers.
Man, I couldnt agree more. While typing this post, I am reminded of the fact that there are probably twenty or thirty more Liberal Arts Leftovers like me with some sort of Humanities degrees in hands sitting in front of their own computers reading or writing a blog entry. Actually may be more than that considering the current economy.
I realised a lot of my blogs have been too self obsessed. While writing this post, I tried of thinking various things that people might be interested in reading. But apparently, I'm out of touch with rest of the world and IPL and politics (two current sensations) dont interest me much to write about. And lets face it, If you're just about to graduate from college and you're not married with kids, you've got to be thinking about yourself!!!
I've decided certain things that I want from my life now:
- Take the CAT this year
- Learn how to cook all the exotic dishes I always wanted to
- Be impressive
- Charge money for friendship (genuiness comes at a price)
- Eat more vegetables (basically eat more stuff apart from chocolates)
- Become a regular at jogging
- Get the goddamned raise to my expected level on job front
- Spend more of my salary on myself.
- And, join some decent MBA coaching institute or if I'm very very lucky, a good mass communication insititute. Whatever happens first.
