Am I Ready?

A friend of mine, Cj, is going to graduate this month, and when I look at him I wonder if I'll be strong enough when my time comes. In less than 5 months I will also be saying the same goodbyes, and probably shedding the same tears. However, knowing how I handle traumatic events, I will be super calm during the farewell and only cry one day after the last day of class.

However, I can only afford to think about such things for a few minutes. It's time to kick into gear and do well in my exams tomorrow.

Think of it as 'rebirth' into another world. :P. Transition always faces some kind of resistance. Friends come and go. Somehow, I find that coursemates are the hardest to keep in touch with, even harder than secondary school classmates. Perhaps your situation will be different.

I agree with you. I'm much closer to my secondary school friends because we did so many things together. Whereas I just meet my coursemates for classes and not much else. Another reason may be geographical disparity. All your secondary schoolmates are in your hometown whereas coursemates are scattered throughout the country (or sometimes the world).

Truth be told, I have very few true friends from my secondary and university days. Most are just acquaintances that you show a plasticky smile to, and talk about fluff.

As for geographical disparity (as you so nicely put it), I've not been back to my hometown in 6 years. More than half of the people I know from my hometown are in KL, and yet, also no motivation to meet up.

Entah I yang celaka, ke kawan-kawan I yang celaka. It takes two to tango...

If everything goes well this semester, then I'll be leaving to Aussie in June...The feeling of leaving familiar grounds is seriously getting to me but I guess it's a road that everybody needs to travel through one day. All the best to you when your turn comes around:)
