So today after school, I didn’t want to go home so early, so I stayed in school and went to the canteen to scout for familiar faces I could possibly spend some time with. I noticed 3 of my friends, all not my classmates. One of them, however, was my classmate from 2 years ago, and a good friend.
The other 2 left. My ex- classmate, let’s call him Ping Pong, wanted to study after school, and since I had to study too, we figured we could just do it together. We went to the concourse, found an empty table and plonked our asses on it and started revision.
We had a good time, Pong and I. We studied, of course, but we also talked. Kinda brings me back to 2 years ago. Ahh.
Anyway, lets rewind two years back. I had an extreme lack of friends outside my class. Only my CCA mates and a bloke named after a type of airplane. And I kinda went with it, I mean, why do I need any more friends?
Well, I was lucky I “streamed” into a class with a whole bunch of NCC dudes. Made friends much quicker than I usually would. I also made friends with other people from other classes thanks to my reinforced friendships with my NCC friends.
Now, most of my classmates hate me now. D:. At first, I was quite depressed and honestly, I figured that since that happened, I might as well pon(skip) school everyday and just mug(study) for ‘O’s at home. After a while, I realized, hey, they actually aren’t my only friends. I had my classmates from 2 years ago to fall back on.
And now back to the story of today afternoon. We studied. We talked too, shared jokes, exchanged viewpoints. A real re-bonding session, if I do say so myself.
I guess I realize now that my friends aren’t only the ones in my class currently. They extend to my CCA mates, that guy who was named after a airplane, and my ex-classmates, not to forget my angelic twin and her close friend.
“Drink with me, to days gone by, to the life that used to be. At the shrine of friendship, never say die, let the wine of friendship never run dry. Here’s to you…
And here’s to me…”
