So here I am at the end of my holidays which started after my exams. Time flew by so quickly that I couldn’t even notice how fast my last year at school ended. Truly this “last year” is one of the most cherishable one for a life time, the best one so far in my school years.
It began with an uncertainty like every other year always does. You never know what awaits you next. I was just a shy and a quiet girl and really didn’t expect this year to hold anything new for me. I thought it would be the same, I would be sitting with my one and only friend, not bothering about others and not even trying to mingle with others; just be quiet, hardly giving a thought to the world or people who existed around me, shut everyone out and let time pass. I guess that’s what I was doing and I never realised hoe monotonous things became.
But as time passed by, I don’t know what changed me but I soon broke down the walls that were built around me and stepped out of my little space and saw something better awaiting for me. The world around me changed and with every passing moment I began to see things differently. I felt as if the people around me were changing or was it just me who was changing?
I could see a meaning behind each and every thing around me. It was as if all things were shining bright and clear just like when the sun’s scattering rays falls around rejuvenating every little thing. Then the “new me” emerged out radiating and glowing with every enlightening change that occurred within me. I made friends, more friends, started talking more and mingling with others. I never knew that I would be ver be able to make such wonderful friends that it would hurt in the end to realise that we all will be soon parting our ways and going in different directions in life.
Everything passed just in the blink of an eye. It seems that just yesterday I was sitting with my classmates laughing and chatting and doing all sorts of nonsense. You see even when you don’t want certain things to end they just do or sometimes you just need to let them go. Nothing could last for an eternity. Whatever comes to you, eventually goes by with passing time. Sometimes I wish I could cease this unfathomable thing called “time” but I know I can’t. In fact none of us can even when we desperately wish to do so, we’re all powerless in front of it.
There was a time when I used to hate school, looking for excuses to not go to school, eagerly looking out for holidays but since last year my perspective changed completely and I fell in love with school and now I miss everything about it. All I can do is reminisce all great deeds that I have done, the fun I’ve had, the constant chit-chatter or me constantly ranting about celebrities, songs, bands and all kind of shit to which some people would just shake their head or some would just join with me.
Honestly, “this one special year” was the most awesome, enthralling, unexpected and definitely a memorable journey worth remembering. I have no idea when I’ll ever get to meet those amazing people again. Time will pass by, bringing a huge change on its way, fading away a few memories, changing people and their feelings but deep down we all know that our hearts will never forget and years from now, every time we would sit and take a journey down the memory lane, a smile will spread across our face leaving behind a sense of pleasure and happiness.
