In the early days of the course it was already evident that we are a vibrant bunch. Lessons took place in the evenings after an exhausting day of work for several coursemates, but somehow the jokes and nonsensical comments prevailed, both online and off. The attitude was seeped in positivity and light-heartedness.
It is rare that I find myself in a group where people have little opportunity to feel awkward or embarrassed. There is simply no time for that, as others are either enthusiastically weighing in with their own (sometimes warped) opinions or digressing into other topics, or just simply having a big laugh about things. Really, any random comment has the potential to evoke uproarious laughter. We tease one another endlessly, but are also ever-ready to provide help and support.
Thanks, all, for bringing out the fun side in everyone and anything. Our semester together at NUS is a brief one, and after the June module, our paths may not cross again. Nonetheless, it was good, while it lasted.
“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”
