Yesterday at 5 a.m in the morning, me and a new bestfriend walked off Platform No.8 towards home.
Steps were laboured, eyes were groggy and thoughts were bittersweet.
Except me, maybe, I got some sleep. xD
We were getting back from a GenCamp in Bombay.
Before we’d left for this camp, I had expected nothing of the sort to come out of it.
With enhanced happiness, I can say though, that those 5 days, quite literally blew my mind.
Never have I ever made that many friends, and such good ones too.
I’m only lucky I didnt break down when people started leaving, but if I tried, I’m sure it wouldn’t have been hard.
That much, I’m sure of.
For me, I LOVE making friends.
Everyone always says that, especially these weirdoes on Social Networking sites and all, but in the literal sense of the word, I LOOOOOWWWEEE making friends.
I don’t know what brings it on, whether it’s in hope to be remembered or be known, I honestly do not know.
These past 5 days, I’ve made friends with :
A. A boy whose smile is contagious as hell.
B. A girl who’s dated the same guy for 6 years. =O
C. A guy who lent me his slippers . =P
D. A girl who gets Sober when she’s drunk.
E. A professor who made his name so confusing to figure out, thanks to having a doppleganger.
I could make this list forever.
And I was challenged.
To keep these friendships for a lifetime.
And I’ll try, I will, coz these guys were like Family.
By the second day there, I was wondering how I had never met these people before in my LIFE.
They seemed to be just the right fit.
And you may always get a shoebite, but hey, if you like the shoes, you don’t stop WEARING them, do YOU?!
The girls were not the kind I have spent my entire life with.
They got me, and I got them.
It probably sounds cliched, how weird all of this sounds, but right now, it IS all of this.
Eventually I think at SOME point in life, you have to just stop being negative, it just gets you nowhere.
I didn’t expect this camp to be ANYTHING like what it was, my thoughts were more along the lines of “It’s a holiday, It’s Bombay, I’m going!”
Not once did I imagine that I would find family.
I’m so grateful to these guys.
Even though they probably won’t read this.
I’m grateful I found them! =D
