I always thought I suck with making friends, it’s always been a one year relationship with them and after that poof, they’re gone. New school year, new friends. It’s totally hard to find people you can be with for years and for real. When I was in my last year in high school, I started to make friends again, I actually became the leader of our all-girls group who hated Math then (we called ourselves Girls At The Back). Amongst the ten girls in our circle, there were only two whom I became super duper friends with. They were my ears when I am desperately in need of someone to listen to me. My clowns when I was down, and the most annoying people I know, whom were also the nicest. Suddenly, I got people beside me and luckily I still have them with me.
Last Sunday, we agreed upon meeting for the first time this year. It’s very shameful to tell that we almost forget each other because of the cliche reasons: busy with school/work, personal agendas and etc. I don’t know how it happened, we almost drifted apart. We contemplated and realized we barely talked. You know how important open communication in every thing in this world, silence sometimes could lead into coldness then feelings being blown away together with the humid wind. We spent our day simple; we had our snack on McDonalds then planned to sit beside the bay to wait for the sunset. I was extremely happy deep inside; we talked about our current personal lives, whereabouts and future plans. But my most favorite would be, when the time we looked back and laughed about our high school days. Amazing, awesome. I couldn’t believe I am still so friends with my high school buddies and they are totally real. This thought makes me miss my high school days a lot. If only God would allow me to go back in the past, I would choose to be with them and spent more happy moments again. They said that ‘past is past, forget it in order to move on’, but happy past like this is worth looking back with.
TFIOS WITH COLLEGE FRIENDS
Just last Friday night, I was out with my three college classmates to watch TFIOS. It was actually me and Agot who wanted to see the movie so bad, but we dragged both Kervi and Bryan to join us. It was just almost half of the movie when I started to get emotional, then I sobbed, until finally I broke down into tears. Too many tears. I was too attached with the book I thought the movie adaptation wouldn’t be good enough just like the others, but I was wrong. The movie really justified the book, the characters, every scenes and they truly hit me directly. I can totally feel the emotions of the characters, from happiness, romance up to the scene he died and she cried. Everyone in the cinema is literally crying, the movie got everyone carried away.
I am speechless. I don’t know what to say anymore. All I know is that the movie is awesome, wonderful and great. Thanks for justifying the book, and portraying it like how we imagined while reading it. Thank you.
