Dear 2010

Dear 2010,

I’m writing this to you to let you know how much I’m going to miss you. You’ve been a great friend and always stood by my side whenever I needed you the most.
Remember during the first month of our relationship, when we used to attend all the symposiums and seminars one could possibly attend just to get On-Duty leave from college. The days were spent cursing our own college and praising even the slightest of the curiosities of the other colleges we visited. Oh and how can I forget my birthday? Yeah I know… three parties in a row on the same day is pretty awesome. The amount of fun we had was limitless. Awesome times, huh?

When we were two months into our relationship we had our first hiccup. But with you right along by my side every mountain seemed to be a mole-hill. I’m really glad I looked at the glass half full – a decision which I could never have taken without you. Hard times passed and we were once again rolling along as smooth as melted chocolate on velvet. The silver lining was the discovery of new friends and great friends at that. Well you know who they are and how close we got over such a small span of time.
As long as I’m on the topic of friends, let me remind you of the time when I was hooked on to Facebook like a drunkard is hooked on to drinks. That was some awesome time. Long lost friends reunited, friendships rekindled, memories reminisced and a hell lot of leg pulling that followed. The addiction to Facebook was completely justified by recalling the good ol’ days of fun and frolicking about in a heaven called school. Who knew Facebook could and would alter someone’s life to this extent? I made new friends apart from the ones I “found”. They actually are really nice people and sometimes serve as “the stranger whom you tell everything to”, just to get stuff off your chest and not be ridiculed or having to hear a sermon about it. Don’t act like you don’t have or need such people, we all do.
What a time we had, right? All the fighting with friends, cooking up catchy nicknames, making your friends do mundane jobs just because you are too lazy to do it, fight over trivial matters, making up afterwards by giving each other a treat, watching episodes of TV series you’ve already watched a hundred times just because it’s way more fun watching it with your friends, ganging up on someone just to show your unity.
 Why on earth do you have to go so fast?
                I’m really going to miss all the fun we had. The middle fingering to the passer-by while on bike, the loong drives, city cruising, PAINT-BALL (!!), mass bunking of classes, crank calls, messing up of relationships and the break-ups. The money shortage problem at the eve of month end, cooking up of stories to tell parents, the scolding that we happily received and oh how can I forget the wonderful parties for all festivals and occasions and “you-passed!!”s and “we-just-got-flushed”s and every other reason one could possibly think of.

                I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing almost everything on this list next year too, but still I thank you for the fond memories and realisations that you’ve provided me.
                Finally, I’m sorry it had to end this way. But it isn’t your fault and neither is it mine. Guess the universe wants us to move on. Any ways, I and all my friends are planning a huge going away party. Hoping to see you there.

P.S I’ll be hooking up with your cousin 2011 pretty soon. Please don’t feel bad. I can only keep my fingers crossed and hope that she’ll be half as awesome as you were.

                                                                                                                                                Yours truly and sincerely,
