The Walls Have Ears
Heh. I found this somewhere in my archives 2 months back. Thought I'd share it with you. :)
I walked along the Uni walkway last night on my way back to Barkers from the uni bus stop. As I looked at every building I walked past or saw from afar, I could recite events I've participated in at each venue.
'That's where I watched All American Rejects'. 'That's where I cried in a lab for the first time'. 'That's where I sold my soul to Mfest'. 'This is where I walked while eating ice cream after crying during 07's MGM rehearsal'. 'That's where I checked out the Indonesian seniors dancing dangdut'. 'That's where we gave Anas his surprise birthday party'.
Okay. I know it would be really hard to leave this awesome place that carries so many of my memories among its walls. However, if you asked me to stay, I'm not sure I would because I don't think I could take any more of this. Yeah yeah, you'll miss uni when you work bla bla. I don't care. Miss, miss la. I don't want to be that creepy person who hangs out by the bleachers at high schools trying to relive his glory days by staring at students.
Sydney as a whole has won a place in my heart. It's helped and watched me grow over the span of 3 years. But I think it's time to leave this chapter behind and step forward. Remember Narnia? Peter and Susan decide to never return because they've learnt all they needed to from Narnia and had to continue growing up in reality. It's the same thing. How long can you actually kid yourself and hold on to your undergrad life?
