Back in grade school all you have to do to gain lots of friends are to recite in class and ace every exam. Interaction with classmates wasn’t necessary. You have your 95+’s as your passport to relationships.
THEN CAME HIGH SCHOOL! Grades were not the key to friendships anymore. The more you talk, the more people will become drawn to you. Unfortunately, I am not the most talkative person in the world. I am not the best-in-prolonging-conversations either. Four years of that. Ugh.
THEN CAME COLLEGE! A breathe of fresh air!
I am thankful that in UP, the passport iiiiss *drum roooooll*…
That’s it! No matter how weird, or awkward, or unsociable you are, you will find people who will be happy to spend time with you. I can say that 97% of the people here are open to differences and enjoy experiencing them. No pressure to perform or impress anyone when it comes to making friends! Because of this freedom, I am encouraged to pursue being more sociable. HIHI. And here I am making improvements!
You can never underestimate the power of a friend’s company. More friends, more fun ✌
"Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.”
- Ecclesiastes 4:9–12
