We started here together and now we’re leaving the same way. The funny thing is you never appreciate what you had yesterday until it is gone today. Saying goodbye can be tough when you don’t know if you are ever going to meet again. Only memories are left behind after a painful farewell from your classmates or rather good friends I must say.
“We’ve shared our happiness and we’ve shared our fears. We’ve shared so many things throughout these five years. And when the times were hard , we were by each other’s side.“If you cry when we part we’ll never see each other again, but if we do not cry we’ll remember forever the days of sunlight and laughter, and be brought together in our memories.
Our memories of 5 years will last a lifetime. We’ll take the best, forget the rest, and someday will find that these are the best of times. Yes, this is it! The Time has finally arrived, when we have to say goodbye to all our sweet and wonderful memories of our University life. We didn’t realize how quickly some of our precious years just passed away and now suddenly we realize how important it was to us.
You understand how much you have changed with the time spent in University: Crazy years and you stand out as a completely different person today. You are cherishing some special bonds as well as forgetting some things you had been carrying since long. It’s an uncanny feeling altogether. Suddenly life goes on a slow motion mode. Your friends are hugging you, there are tears in your eyes; the ambiance is now different.
You have mastered the art of self control. Of course , after staying with all types of people- be it the hyper, angry, chirpy or emotional types. As now you are trained to handle them all .Canteen will no more mean the Spot; the adda will probably change. Now deadlines will mean deadlines. And figures will mean something different.
There will be a sudden realization that these moments will never come back.
You will check all your pictures from first year till now. The makeover from being ugly to pretty! And some of your stupid status updates regarding University life.
You will start thinking about how time passed. How some relationships within your friends changed. Some for good, some for bad and some for unknown reasons. There’s no way that I can fully express how everyone has positively impacted my life. I tell people that the law school experience is incredible but in hindsight, you all , are the reason why I can say that with 100% confidence. The experience would not have been epic had it not been for you all. I’ve learned so much inside and outside of the classroom from each one of you
