I don’t understand how people can make friends with some ulterior motive. It really makes the saying “that’s what friends are for” seem like a lie. It’s so disappointing to find out people aren’t really what they seem to be. Befriending you for some purpose like boosting their own grades, then dropping you like a hot potato when they find out you aren’t of use to them. How can friendship be used to compare something like that?
Isn’t it tiring to assess people like that? It’s like doing a full profile scan to find out if someone is worth your time or not. That’s so sad.
It is precisely why I was so afraid to mix with my own fellow countrymen. Almost all of them are scholars. Compared to them, I’m nothing. I don’t ace anything. I don’t come from some prestigious school. I don’t drink or club. To make things worse, I’m always afraid people will say stuff like I got into the school coz of my uncle. I did not. Of course, I’m not saying that everyone is like that but it pains me to find out some people are like that.
I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not. I help people because I want to, not because I expect something big in return.
This talk makes me miss 7ners a lot more. The friends who truly love me for who I really am… I :heart: you!
I have a new love! Soymilk = my new love :heart: CHU!
