50+ Things That Tell You, “You’re In BMM!”

  • Running away from home (in the name of projects) doesn’t seem like a lie anymore!
  • Your presence at the photocopy centre is at top most priority just before the exams. You may even have an attendance register there
  • Your alarm clock is set 15 minutes ahead so you can potentially make it to class on time.
  • You eventually realize that setting your clock ahead makes no difference to you and you’re still late
  • You’ve ‘friends’ in class who wouldn’t give you their notes (and you weren’t writing in class thinking ‘let them write, I will photocopy from them later.’)
  • Notes start circulating only 2 weeks before exam. (And you don’t understand, where were these notes until now)
  • Computers/printers/writers break down only when you badly need them
  • Notes suddenly become so important that your friends aren’t friends anymore – They are NOW friends with people who have notes
  • Few days before exams, people in class come out with really huge bundle of new notes (and you keep wondering “where did they get that from?”

  • Visiting – in very rare cases – even one media company in your entire visit is something to talk about
  • You don’t have an answer when your parents ask, “What did you guys do in your industrial visit?”
  • Before the visit, The class (esp TYBMM) spends more time (sometimes weeks) on deciding locations than time spent on ad design or magazine design projects

  • Energy drinks become your new best friends.
  • Your fate after BMM is undecided.
  • Life without your computer/cell phone/player is unimaginable.

  • You skip/bunk one lecture to make a project for another
