At least it was here

Watching Community on Star World has become something of a guilty pleasure when I'm supposed to be cramming irrelevant details of textbooks into my wannabe-harddrive of a brain. The more I watch it, the more I realise how difficult it is to make new friends when you're set in your ways and when your personality is as immutable as a grown-up's. And how when you do make friends with someone at 'this age', it's actually special.

Makes me kinda wonder how it was even possible that once upon a time sharing egg-sandwiches with a guy wud be enuff to create a bond of friendship and the girl who sat next to you on the schoolbus wud be your brand new BFF.

But the harder it gets to find probable bosom-buddies, the more delighted I am to actually meet someone I can definitely be great friends with or atleast have great conversations with.

Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one.' - C. S. Lewis

SOme thoughts, here. You are quite right Karishma when you say that it is hard to become bosom friends when you surpass a certain age. So, these days I am quite comfortable on my own managing well with the few friends I made while younger. I feel that these days I connect with many people online (blogs, FB, etc.,) What say, Karishma? You too?

I really liked that quote by Lewis. What a nice way to describe the birth of friendship.

Hope all is well at your end. All the best for everything.

Joy always,

Every adjustment becomes difficult with time. But I feel, somewhere we should all be open to new friendships..

Blue Periwinkle, thanks! :)

Susan, I agree. I really didnt expect to become such good friends with people I met online, but I did and I'm actually pretty glad that I live in the Age of the Internet. :D Congratulations again on the Ph.D. :)

Sakshi, agreed.

Philophobic, hi!

That's one of my favorite quotes!

And it should be admitted now that I have been a regular of your blog, though I haven't commented before.

JD! Totally agree about C. S. Lewis! I discovered Narnia late, but I loved how it felt like LOTR Lite at times. :D
