A year or ten from now…it will still be Happy Friendship Day

Someone once told me that high schools friendships are made fast but they break down even faster. I am not sure if it’s true but I know one thing and that is- that whether it’s a year or ten or million from now, the only way I will ever be able to forget you crazies is if I get amnesia and you know what? I don’t think I will forget you all even then because psychology states that you only forget memories which are not fully formed and every second being with you all- it’s like a roller coaster ride, I am screaming the entire way but I don’t think I will ever forget a single second because it’s the most amazing feeling on the planet apart from reading of course but then ever time I read the word friends you all come barging into my thoughts and I know friendship day was almost a week ago but hey, I had exams okay and really I don’t think our friendships need to celebrated on a particular day. I don’t know where we will be years from now, whether I will be able to ping and irritate you all like I do every single day nowor if we will even be on the same continent but I know one thing and you know what that is? I don’t care if it’s a day or month or year or a decade but I know that someday I will see you all again whether it be when we are all becoming famous together or I am the bridesmaid at your weddings or we are in college or whatever but I know one day I will see you all again and no matter what? Our friendships will remain “four”ever.

Now that we are talking about friendships how can I forget my beloved books? Books that helped me through everything- exam stress, yes, I-have-the-flu-and-I-need-chessy, definitely and have basically always been there for me whether rain or shine. They have become something that is so real that I feel even reality pales in comparison, reading makes me feel like a bird, who is always flying above the clouds, seeing the world with a beauty of it’s own, and I don’t know if ten years from now whether I will still feel again like a ten year old when I open Prisoner of Askaban and whether all my memories, every second of my life will come rushing back to me as I read my way through any book, I know that my love for reading and writing it’s like breathing, something I can’t live without, something that makes me me. So thank you Percy Jackson and Harry Potter and Tris and Four and Mo and every single character in every universe whether made by me or a famous author, thank you for existing and being real to me, thanks a lot. Not that I would have known most of these characters had my friends not shoved them into my life, despite being as fan-girly as they come, I still feel like people recommend books and books recommend people, if you know what I mean.

Thanks you guys for giving me moments which I will always cherish, for sharing tiffin with me, carrying my bag up the stairs and for offering me help with the “math jitters”, not that I ever took you up on it (and you know whom I am talking about), not for ruining my sleep but for dragging me swimming in the summer, thanks for my first sleepover outside a boarding school, thanks for arranging midnight birthday parties, for calling me in the middle of the night to chat or wish me a very long life and remind me how I was born “in the zoo with monkeys that are like you” or for forgiving me because I got you yelled at and for always welcoming me no matter what and  for being there. Thanks so much for reading with me, for fighting over books pulling them away from me so that I would talk, for hearing my crazy story book ideas, for dancing and for music{a big thank you to the entire world as well}, and I don’t care if our friendship started with elocution or fanfiction or online or through mutual friends or by me puking on your book or by bumping into corridors or by whatever way because I will treasure it always.

Thanks for being the inspiration for my book and know that no matter what, whenever the heroine has a best friend in my books, it will be be of you weirdos and that’s an oath on the Styx or on the angel or a Marauders Vow, whichever you want bestie. Thank you for being there in my life for even a second and changing it because without change life’s boring and being a dauntless dare-devil at heart, I will not only try to go down in history but I will drag you lot with me so that wherever I am after rmy death and hear people cursing me, I can smirk at you and say you’re next sweetheart. Thanks for everything la harmanas and let’s go out with a bang shall we because I really loved fighting dragons with you because you guys are the Lilys and Tinas to my Mia, the Christinas, Marlenes to my Tris, the Ruths to my Jess, the Suzes and Ginas to my CeeCee and much more.

Loads of love (the best friend and soul sister kind),

Anjali.

P.S.- A song dedicated to nights that turned to days with friends who turned to family and of course my younger sister who despite being the devil is the Prim to my Katniss and I know it’s a sucky comparison.

  1. Hey harmana! I’m glad we give you an adrenaline rush but you’re forgetting that too much of it could be harmful to you. I dont think we’ll ever forget each other but if you suddenly aquire the guts to, i make sure you remember me in the most painful wau possible, kay? I’ll add a few scars in if i’m feeling generous enough. Deal? *smirk*
    I dare you, angel. Just try to forget me. You wont be alive long enough to regret it…
