Daily Prompt: Buffalo Nickel | Year 2003


I was just getting out of my car, when I heard the email alert from my iPad. Like most people nowadays, I just couldn’t help myself and had a look. It turned out to be Daily Prompt from WordPress. It says that I should find the first coin in my car (or other places) and see what year is printed there. I found the coin pictured above.

I can’t believe it has been ten years since I went back to university to get my master degree. I feel old now. I still remember how excited I was in the beginning of year 2003 to find my name was among the admitted candidates. It had been a tough time preparing for the test as a guy broke my heart and I actually cried while studying and working on exercises. I don’t know how I did it! Working on math problems with tears hot on my cheeks!

And so, I was in. I met some very interesting group of people in my class. In fact, it was a lot of fun. It made all the hardwork, the case studies, quizzes, projects, sleepless nights, and basically nearly no fun by the popular standard, fun. It was also a perfect diversion from my sad love life as I did not have time to drown myself in sorrow. And by the end of the program, I graduated cum laude!

So, it was a good year and a good time to remember too… I still can’t believe it has been a decade past. How time flies!
