I think it’s fascinating, the crazy ways in which you discover who you can trust and who you can’t; whose company you enjoy and appreciate, and whose is like taking a bitter pill.
A couple of days ago, the university’s student union societies fayre took place, where I was representing Street Dance society, as vice-president, with the rest of the committee. I knew this would be a long day of repeating the same piece of dialogue to every student who shows interest in the society (having done this 2 years in a row for other societies) and considering I don’t spend much time with the rest of my committee, I think I expected it to be quite awkward.
It was quite the opposite actually.
We were able to play music, and spent the time singing and dancing together, and really making the most of the 9 or so hours we had to spend in that room. It was at that moment I realised, I genuinely enjoy being around these people. They make me happy, and I have a lot of fun with them, and not just because we share the same passion and love for dance.
Another incident took place, where I realised who around me actually knew me and trusted me. There were a couple of these people. And for the first time, someone properly stood up for me too, when I did not even consider that they would. I am forever indebted to that person. But someone I hoped would, actually faltered at the lies from another.
Like I said, fascinating.
