Blow, blow, thou winter wind, 
   Thou art not so unkind        As man’s ingratitude;     Thy tooth is not so keen,  Because thou art not seen,        Although thy breath be rude.  Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:  Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly:     Then, heigh-ho, the holly!        This life is most jolly.
   Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,     That dost not bite so nigh        As benefits forgot:     Though thou the waters warp,        Thy sting is not so sharp        As friend remembered not.  Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly...

HSC English 1st Paper - The SchoolBoy by William Blake Summary and Notes

The summary: 
This poem expresses the feeling of a young boy who loves to be free, feel the nature and joy of the life. It also focuses in the negative sides of our education system that seems to bound a boy within a limit and lots of 'dos and don'ts'. 

The speaker of this poem is a young boy who rises early in the summer and loves to hear the songs of bird and sweet horn of huntsmen. He feels it annoying to go to school in such a beautiful weather. But he is constrained to go to school. He finds no delight either in study or class because he wants to play outside and witness the beautiful weather. He feels like a trapped songbird in a cage. He complains to his parents that how children can grow and thrive if they are not allowed to enjoy the nature.

The Schoolboy by William Blake

I love to rise in a summer morn,When the birds sing on every tree;The distant huntsman winds his horn,And the skylark sings with me:O what sweet company!
But to go to school in a summer morn, – O it dr…

Becoming Negligent in the first 3 months of College life

It is shameful to state that I was totally negligent, inattentive and careless in the past 3 months. I got admitted to BAF Shaheen College Kurmitola back in July. I wasn't really happy getting admitted but luck, wrong choice and a weak research on college selection took me there.

I unconsciously selected B A F Shaheen College Kurmitola rather than Shaheen College Dhaka. Actually there are two branch of B A F Shaheen College in Dhaka. The main branch is located at Tejgaon and another one is at Kurmitola. I didn't took it seriously and faultily selected the Kurmitola branch. And finally, it headed me towards frustration and regret of not getting admitted to a better college. I could get admitted to much better college than this with the result I obtained. 

Another thing to be noted, I had a very good chance to get admitted in Notre Dame College and Saint Joseph College. These are the best 2 colleges in Bangladesh. Frankly speaking, I was totally negligent while taking preparat…
