Just like Ol' Times

Posted by Varun

Had such a good time last night! Caught up with old friends after so long...it was a throwback to the old days, we met to relive it,probably for one last time.Looks like everyone's slowly but surely drifting apart in there separate directions...

Our gang came together during the first year of our engineering course.The common ground being football.We would bunk lectures,nay,entire college days,and be on the field,playing football.We had the time of our lives our the first year.But by the end of that year,we were separated as our classes became more hectic,and lecture timings clashed.We hardly met each other over the last 3 years,with people spread apart in Mechanical,IT&Computers,Electronics,etc but contacts were still there.Random calls to surprise people,and telling them off for not calling,meeting people after college for a quick tea and 'vada pav'...Oh we kept it going alright.

But yesterday was different.Now almost everyone's working full time,some of us (like me) about to join in and some of us,to fly away abroad for further studies.We decided to meet for dinner.It was just like the old days.We laughed like crazy,we cracked such lame jokes even the other people started looking,we wiped the floor with each others' backsides,throwing random insults (don't worry,we don't pick on people,everyone gets whammed) and made a loud ruckus.We knew we were far worse than the family behind us,with there 4 noisy,perpetually howling kids,but what had to be done,had to be done.

When I finally reached home,I was half asleep,but still,as I switched off the lights,I felt satisfied,I caught up with my old friends again.I know probably we won't have another outing like this in a long long time,but at least all of us moved on from our yesterday with a smile on our faces...at least we won't keep looking back for something as we move forward tomorrow...

we always think we won't drift apart, we're not like THEM, we'll be friends forever. But slowly and surely, we go our way.
The worst of it is, making such great friends becomes tougher over time, as we become "adults".
Sigh! Such is life.

@hashan: it wasn't senti or anything,we guys are too alpha-male-is for that,but it sure was a little awkward,because everyone knew we wouldn't have another night out like this one again...
@vedang: I dunno about others,but it's been the story of my life.leaving nashik,leaving school,leaving JC,and now,graduating.But it always feels nice to reminisce about times gone by.Thankfully,most of them have been good times :)
Gosh! If it's like this now,I wonder what it will be like at the age of 60 lol
