Once You’re MAD You Really GO MAD!

1. 4 out of 5 notifications on your Facebook homepage have something to do with MAD/MADsters!

2. Suddenly you status messages are about recruitments/MAD NATCON/ your MAD kids! :D

3. You have to [compulsorily] use more than 5 accounts – so 5 usernames and 5 passwords- as instructed by our superior authorities!

4. You have a pen with ‘MAD’ inscribed on it! [SUPER COOL!!]

5. Your closest friends happen to be those you’ve met through MAD!! [I LIKE!]

6. The meaning of “coconut tree” does no more only signify the tree! :p

7. Your profile picture/screen saver/background pictures are MAD logos!

8. A lot of our passwords are (name/city)gonemad!

9. For some of us, before even our graduation, we get the [evil/sadistic] pleasure of taking people’s interviews!!

10. Every week, when your friends are probably sipping on cold coffee at a city café, you are imparting knowledge to your MAD kids!!! [How noble!]

11. While studying.. or supposedly studying for your paper due in 2 weeks – instead of studying, you think about your city action plan or write a blog for the MAD blog! [That would be me!!]

12. When you absolutely do not want to go back to your friends and family but spend a few more days at the National Conference!

13. You begin to realize that MAD is not just an organization and its not just about teaching! It’s WAY MORE THAN THAT!! – It’s a new family!  – that works together doing everything they possibly can to help its children make the best of themselves and their lives!

GO MAD. LOVE MAD!

    I think

    – It is about all those times when you are depressed because class got cancelled.
    – It is when you fight with your hospital doctors to discharge you on friday night bcas you have class on Saturday morning. :P
    – It is when your parents never understand what you do in MAD but can definitely say that you have matured.

    – When MAD does not remain just a part of your life, but becomes the way of life!
    – You feel proud when someone calls you MAD
    – Most of your inbox msgs are filled with Substitution requests, Bunch Meeting notifications, feedbacks, syllabus discussions.
    – When you are still discussing LKG syllabus even after 15 yrs of passing out of LKG ;P

    Soo true, you go to a book store and spend more time on Dr Suis than Salman Rushdi !!

    – When you know your life would suddenly be so intolerably boring if not for MAD.
    – When the first thought that crosses your mind when the power goes out is ' No.. no not now!!! Not done with Basecamp milestones yet!!!! Grrrrrhhhhh!!!'
    – When the MAD blog, Makeadiff login, Basecamp are bookmarked.
    – When you suddenly notice goosebumps on your arm while reading such 'MAD' posts.

    Giga – completely loved this post!! :)

    – When you have 9 kids before you are 30.
    – When you do the scout clap in an office meeting.
    – When you start liking the blackboard more than the whiteboard.
    – When you hate S on an orange.
    – When most of your contacts in your phone have a surname of MAD.
    – When you are no longer mad when you are out of credits!
