Moving in a new place can be alot difficult . It’s not just your home you change its your entire life you change . Your comfort zone gets changed . The place you always eat when you sad , the place you like to sit and watch the sun go down , the place you shop , the bus you take to go home . Even though you don’t know the names of people in the area , you are pretty familiar with them . When you move everything changes .
I shifted ten years ago . Thought to myself new place , new beginning and new friends to make . Being an introvert , it was hard .
There was a girl in my class who used to take the same bus as me . Which meant she lived near me . I had same friends for ten years now . I had to make new friends now . I had no idea what to talk to them . Because , I had nothing in common . Except , she was in my class .I lived in town part and now I was in suburbs . I had no idea , about the places . I had no place to go and eat my loneliness away ( I eat my feelings ) . I only knew how to go to college from my house .
So , when I saw her again in the bus . I thought let’s give it a shot . Being a introvert with anxiety issues I had to just make one friend . Small conversations , that’s all I thought . It was my bday the day before that . I was like ” hi , you are in my class ” . I didn’t knew what to say after that so I searched in my pocket and gave a chocolate and told “it was my bday yesterday” . She is an extrovert . It helped alot cause , her story would go … A stranger gave me a chocolate because it was her bday on a bus . She didn’t mind taking chocolate from a stranger who allegedly said she is in her class even though she didn’t ever saw her .
She is a extrovert . So , I don’t have to think about a topic while talking with her . She show me the best pani puri in the town . Where to shop , where not to shop . Talked about boys . If I saw a cute boy , I have literally dragged her to make her look . There was a incident where we missed 7 to 8 busses because , first time we stood for a hour , we were bored so we decided to walk till the next stop and saw two busses just pass us by as we were walking , once we reached the second stop we waited for another half hour or so then we were hungry so v decided to eat and saw three buses go while we shamelessly enjoyed pavbhaji and chai . Then , we again waited at the third stop n decided to walk till fourth stop and then take a rikshaw . While walking , again two buses passed us by . So when we reached the fourth stop waited for a hour finally boarded the bus . Went to colg it was lunch break . So again went out had a slush (crushed ice with soda ) and came back home . We were really tired of all the standing , waiting for the bus .
She also encouraged me to study . Even though our life took different turn . She an engineer and me in pharmacy . We still have alot to talk about . It’s her birthday . I have wrote many things about her . But , trust me every day with her was an adventure . Once , we were so engrossed in talking and crossing the road we were saved by a sec from getting hit by a mini truck . After , that we decided we would just keep our mouth shut while crossing .
Once , there was a cute guy walking on the road and I just kept staring at him . I decided to tell her so I just looked at my left and saw her fallen on the ground . Looking at me with furious eyes ” I am calling for your help , where are you looking at ” . Ya , she did cursed alittle .
There are alot of other memories also . She is someone who literally taught me how to make our own happiness . So , happy birthday to that girl .
