Best part of life is the teenage days. Teenage days are those days which give lots of memories some bitter and some sweet. A phase of life where we fight, receive nervousness, try new things, value friends more then to family, to some extent study, shift to hostels, bang classes, continue to exist on fast foods, give stress on relationships, realize the gist of life, understands the value of money, have the benefit of laziness, gets familiar to the change in likes and dislikes of oneself and the list includes lots more. There crop up many changes from school to college. Other experiences could be witnessed over the episode of school life but the actual enjoyment of teenage arises when we shift from our homes to hostels. This is because we being in hostel gets a bit independent which we want from a time ago. School is place where we almost are with those who are of our kind means who exists from a society we are familiar with but dissimilarity with university or college is that here we get introduced with people of different society. So it can be said as college life brings many changes and enjoyments. Bigger change emerges while being in hostel.
“Hostel” a place which is not actually the home but also not a place less the home. Home and hostel both the words start with the same letter which indicates similarities and the different meaning indicates dissimilarities. Home gives you the essence of love and hostel gives you the essence of togetherness. Talking about home creates smile on our face but while talking about hostel brings additional laughter to our faces. Moving from home to hostel brings tears to faces but also gives an impression of fun in mind. Home is place where we live with those who are familiar to us but in hostel we live to make people become familiar to us. Birthdays are celebrated at both the places with same enthusiasm but with different gestures. In home relatives and parents celebrate with pleasant gathering but in hostel friends celebrate with explosive birthday bombs. Food in home is eaten to bring smile to our tummy but in hostel we eat to full the stomach and then noodles turns to be the way to convert empty stomach into happy tummy.
Both the places assure happy living which is the main and the biggest similarity between the two. We make memories in both the places which are a similarity but the difference is at home memories are derived with family and in hostel friends become the ingredient of memories. Both places accurse love which is the similarity but the difference here is of family and friends. Concluding this it could be said that hostel is a temporary phase of life which teaches as a lot and makes us someone which we have never thought of. Everyone must enjoy these phase with true friends.
