End of First semester........

Last night was my last exam.. Genetics exam... no comments on my performance! But soon after the exam, me, clueless, ann@, Cookie monster and blazars decided to freak out. It was a girls night out!!! Actually, it would have been a more successful night out if the exam got over sooner and we had left.. shops close too early here! But anyways, we left the campus as soon as we could and went to shop a bit for family and friends back at home. Then we caught a late dinner... a pretty late dinner.. most of the restaurants were either closing or out of food! We managed to find a decent meal though. Then we went and watched the midnight show of Harry Potter 4. It was great fun sitting and comparing the movie with the book (I think clueless and I have the entire series downloaded in our memory!). After the movie, we caught a cab and were back.

After coming back to hostel, I went with clueless to her room, she was going to start packing up. We are all headed back home tomorrow.... It was in her room that reality started to sink in...

First semester is over... four months gone just like that... this was too fast!!! Can't I turn back time??
I still can't believe it... Seems like only yesterday that I joined university.. and first semester is over already! Four months spent here already! I still can't believe it...

A
s clueless packed, my mind travelled back in time and just went through all the events of the first semester... then i realised... I have changed a lot since I came here to university! I have found a new family here.. a family of friends...

Four months back, I remember how hard it was for me to say bye to my parents and it seemed so incredible that I was actually going to stay in a hostel... I felt bad about leaving them.. I missed them a lot. All I wanted back then was for the semester to get over so that I could go back home....

As the semester unfolded, I found some really amazing friends here.. I had loads of fun with them. I think these statements are pretty obvious in some of my previous posts where I wrote about all the adventures and fun that we had and also about how I discovered how much they care...I have grown to love them and care about them a lot... so much that they are like a second family for me!

Now that its time to say a brief goodbye, I am beginning to feel sad. I am totally excited about going back home and spending time with my parents! But I also know that I am going to miss my family here... even though it is only for a month.... This is the not-so-macho part of me! Clueless is well acquainted with this part of me!

I sat last night.. (or rather early this morning!).. wondering how did my friends become so special to me in just a matter of four months? We have all known each other only for that long. How did they become so close to me? I still don't understand... Maybe I don't want to.. all that matters is that I found them... I found the right friends..

I guess the beginning and the end of each semester is going to have its sad moments... Sad to say bye to my parents just before the semester after having fun with them, sad to say bye to my friends at the end of the semester after having fun with them here...

I know that I am probably just being stupid or too emotional... But thats how I am! I am terrible when it comes to saying bye to the people I care about! I will get over it. But till then... I will hold everything back and try to make the best use of my time with them... I will enjoy to the max with them!

In short... this blog is to let all my friends know that I will miss you all... Especially clueless... with whom i spent most of my semester... I have no idea how the semester would have turned out without you... Here's another post dedicated to all my friends....

I guess some ppl become frnds in quite a short period of time coz things just "click" or "cluck" as the case maybe!! don't u think? i am not sure if we clicked or clucked though... hmmm... what do u think??

#ann@
hehe.. another countdown!!! i still remember the last countdown we had!!!:D We r all special in our own ways.. aren't we... i guess thats another thing that makes life so special with ur frnds who can see that special person in u!

And abt the missing u part... I'll try my best!!

If we look at people around us, we miss only those people who care for us, without any conditions, without expecting anything in return. There may be so many people with whom we spend years, evendecades and still not miss them. You have been lucky to get good friends. Wish that your friendship with them will last life long, irrespective of where they will be after the course is over. The memories of the time spent with them will be with you forever.
