Two week Raya break, the last one that is...

I am here at Larkin bus terminal, waiting for my 9.30pm bus.
It's not fun at all waiting all alone by yourself while some of your friends are already back at their hometown, happily having Iftar with their entire families.
And I am here alone, waiting for the bus.
Not forgetting the 7-8 excruciating hours of  journey to my place, that's going to be very boring.

However, I am looking forward to this journey because it has been a while since I last took a bus for a long journey like this,
It was in 2005 when I first experienced a long journey on buses.
It was when I started my studies at then-known as MPTI, IPTI and now IPGKTM.
And here it is, it's the end of 2010, where the journey is coming to an end.
I sometimes find it hard to really believe that the 6 long years of studies which I used to see as something very painful to go through is coming to an end.
In another  7 months or so, I will no longer be known as a student or teacher trainee.
And this whole schooling thing will be over for me. (I haven't really thought of pursuing Masters or anything of that sort)
I am definitely going to badly miss the things I could do as a student. It's going to a completely different life altogether.

Last night, I had a great conversation with some friends who I started this whole journey with together.
Looking back to what we did before, how it all began, the orientation week we went through together, how everyone now looks completely different (some have grown fat, some have grown thinner than ever, some stay the same like how we first met them) and all sort of things we did and experiences we had for the last 5 years.
It's unbelievable that whenever I think of it, I am kind of sad because I will never get to go through the same thing again.
I have known some great people,some awful utterly bad people, those old friends whom I only get to start knowing them closer now.
it's hard to imagine that after going through this whole thing togetehr, we are going to be parted soon.
How sad, right?
I guess, that's life.
All I need to know is there some people and friends whom you can treasure fo life.
And I now do beelieve that there are people who you can call great true frineds.
They exist, so I am gonna keep their friendship close to my heart.
I don't wanna sound so cliche and corny, but yes, no matter how far the distance is, true friends are forever.
I am grateful and thankful to have known you people.
I am definitely going to miss you guys!

Gotta go now.
It's almost time and I definitely wouldn't want to miss my bus.
So excited to go back home to be with my Mak, abah, and my entire ridiculously loving family!
Till then, it's Memer signing off...
