Apparently, our college decided to conduct the end semester examination OFFLINE. The mode could have been surprising for us but it couldn’t because EXPERIENCE.
The announcement relocated me once again some 320km away from HOME (I would rather keep myself from mentioning the name of any place).
Prior to March 2020, I was rarely connected to this city, even though when I had been here for more than 21 months.
Familiar city once again made me encounter familiar strangers. But felt less loner. Or maybe I was just paranoid earlier.
My first arrival here in July 2018 went through some very unpleasant incidents which made me scream I DON’T BELONG HERE. I kept missing my friends and ex- roommate who were miles away.
However, with time my heart became less troubled but never settled wholly.
Making friends is not hard UNLESS THE BRAIN IS IN DENIAL. My intermediate years in hostel have made an extraordinary impact on how I think and act (no bullying or harassments involved). Thus, choosing the group of minds, I have to surround myself with, are preambles of my life. Still some cheat codes are permissible if these minds are beautiful and compelling enough.
Also, initiating conversations are not balls of my court, all I know is to retreat. But I believe this has seriously benefitted me. (KARMA obviously) My colleagues are just a bunch of perky people who inured every single moment of my stay gleeful.
The sudden change of heart for this place is also because we’ll soon bid our farewell and then leave with an uncertain future that may or may not hold a reunion. And 3 years of graduation would soon be concluded, initiating the journey of an Educated Unemployed (not kidding).
I was in denial to love this city; seems those DENIALS WERE DENIED!
