Stepping outside home is one of the things that everyone has experienced at least once in their lifetime. Only a few lucky ones could stay back at home and still make a career. An entry into a new and independent world is something that can make you really apprehensive. But living in a hostel is perhaps the most exciting phase of life, which is cherished by most students all throughout.
Hostel life for the first timers is an altogether new experience. With a new place and new people, opportunities are more and you can investigate many measures that were not thought of earlier. The opportunity of meeting new people, exploring new places, sports, activities like road trips and much more are all bagged when you live a hostel life. With a self-governing and independent living that hostels present us with, we endeavour to take up several possibilities that we cannot take when we are home.
At one phase of life, people need to be introduced to new things in life. Otherwise, the mind will become stagnant and there will be a lack of cognitive development. At home, life is planned but in the hostel, you have to take the burden to discipline yourself, stay organized and do every bit of your regular life on your own. The newness of the hostel is the best teacher of life and it is upon us how to take considerable advantage.
At home, we are quite unaware of the truth about life and its harshness. However, a hostel offers a wide platform to encounter our fears, apprehensions and other difficulties. We learn how to face them independently. Moreover, this will develop our self-esteem and we can be better individuals.
Hostel life is the best place to grow strong as emotionally, physically and mentally. This comes out as the end result of our difficult times, strive to protect ourselves and balance study life or work life. The meeting and interaction with different kinds and sets of people will have to place them at a different stage in life.
As a matter of fact, hostel life is quite different from the one at home. Our endeavour to fit in a new place resonates with the aptitude and ability to adjust to the surrounding. There is no such experience which is either extremely bad or good. The series of events in life is a mixture of good and bad and we are all exposed to some kinds of unfamiliar hitherto.
The moment you start living in a hostel, all you have as a family are your friends that you make at that point in time. They are all you have for your further sustenance and survival. You will gradually begin to depend on them for many things just as you experience with your brother or sister. We eat, live, hang out, study together with friends and they become core part of our life.
