Hey everyone. I know I haven’t written in a while (7 months to be specific)… It should be no surprise then that I didn’t get into MIT or the other US colleges I applied to. Now, I’m studying Computer Engineering at Goa College of Engineering. College life is good and I’m enjoying everything so far. (I turn 18 this month 😀 )

I forgot to tell you about this before but I have a new blog where I post sci-fi related physics stuff. I try to simplify what I say so it’s easy to understand. Check it out:  You know how I was inactive on the Geek Life? That won’t be the case with Theoretical Easyics. I make it a point to post at least once a month there (or even sooner if possible). Please do check it out and I’d really appreciate if you follow/subscribe. I need all the love, support and motivation I can get.

Speaking of Geek Life, I’ve decided to quit posting here. I haven’t been active and honestly, I find it tougher to write here (my life is not so interesting 😛 ). My other blog is easier to write and I’m going to be giving that all my time. I’m really sorry if you liked this blog. I realized I didn’t have a real vision for this blog before starting it. But if you liked this, I guarantee you’re going to love Theoretical Easyics.

Maybe I’ll start this blog again sometime in the future. But until then… Thank you for being part of the journey on The Geek Life.  Live long and prosper.

  1. Hey Shawn,
    I have literally been in the exact same position. It hurt a lot.
    I was up till 5 in the morning for my decisions, got rejected, told my parents about it and cried myself to sleep.
    For some reason, it still hurts. All the things that could have been but never were.

    Anyway, I’ve learned it’s no use dwelling in the past so I’m doing the best I can with what I have.

    All the best for college, and also for wherever you end up after.

    1. Yess! It was the exact same thing with me. I set my alarm early, saw my decision and told my mother and slept again. I think I had one of my board exam papers the day after the next but I still spent the day with my head in my pillow. It hurt a lot but I also started realizing how delusional some of my thinking had been up to that point. It was a wake up slap (Pokemon move lol) for me and I’m much more self aware now. Still, it didn’t help my self esteem at all and I’m still thinking of life at MIT. The good thing is I’m making a better attempt at improving myself.
