Change

As I stepped into the new environment,I felt a twang of nervousness I had long forgotten. It was ages since I had been in an alien environment and I wasnt prepared for it. I had hoped (against hope) that I wouldn't have to face this day.

As I stepped into the new environment, the events of the past few years came in front of my eyes. I remembered walking into a similar yet so different campus. I remembered all the amazing friends I made there. I remembered all the weird jokes made. All the lectures bunked while just playing truth or dare..Even though everyone knew everything about the other person. I remembered the way he would pull me back while he was playing "pseudo" poker with his friends just because he believed he lost every time I went away. I remembered all the times we had spent in the "library".

All those moments, precious moments flashed in front of my eyes. I thought of all those things I had taken for granted. The numerous economics lectures when I did nothing but talk to my friends about everything in the world. How the professor would complain about all the "talking members" and we would giggle. I remembered all the crazy and not so crazy times we have had. I thought of all the times when leaving for home from college would take 45 mins because I would keep meeting people in the short distance.

Zap! I came back to reality! Those days were over. I was about to venture into a new world which was unknown yet maybe a wonderful world. The unknown is always not the worse. Most of the time, we are so afraid of giving up what we have (just for the sake of security) that we are unable to see that what we may get in return maybe far more than what we have. Its so important to take some risks at times. And even you fail in this endeavour , you know that those who are true to you will always be there for you!! So let the risk act as a sieve , so that you know who your true friends are!!! :)

Hi!!
Hope things would change for the better and you'll take that extra risk and it'll pay off!

Schooldays are the golden memories that can't be replaced by anything.but sadly, we all grow up and we realise their importance once we're out of school..
keep writing..
