College life is nothing without friends; friends are the essence of college life. I couldn’t have made it through college if it weren’t for my friends. College life is the phase of life when we create beautiful memories with friends, memories that we cherish forever.
Let’s take a look at the type of friends every gang must have:
A straightforward person is an important member of the group. However, he is often despised for being forthright, as people mistakenly assume his statements as ridicules. His answers are remarkably candid. Whenever you need an honest opinion about your dress, behavior, or presentation, you go to them because they are fearless and honest.
CAUTION: Understand them or else quarrels will be unavoidable.
Why have a chatterbox? Aren’t they annoying?
Well, maybe they are! But, there are good reasons to have one such ‘box’ in your gang.
Bored? This will not be a problem if you have a chatterbox in the gang. Whenever the group is out of topics and dearth of issues to talk about, the big mouth comes to the rescue. He takes the burden of starting a discussion or at the minimum he keeps squeaking about something that is customarily unworthy yet engrossing. Wherever he is, lethargy ceases to exist.
CAUTION: He is extremely addictive.
This hardly needs an explanation. Since the primary objective of every student is to do well in the exams and put a full stop to academics as soon as possible, the assistance of a Poindexter is quite imperative. He is the avatar during exams, assignments, class tests, seminars, and everything brainy. A group is essentially considered ignorant without a nerd. But, you need to have a good geek who is willing to help – not by allowing you to copy the assignments but by assisting in solving them.
CAUTION: Try not to involve them in anything that is non-geeky as the consequences are usually amateurish.
You can call him the halfwit of your group. He would never get a thing right. Generally, his behavior, actions, and reactions are too peculiar to handle which makes him the victim of everyone’s anger and amusement. Even the person with least sense of humor is likely to crack jokes about him. However, this wack kills boredom, and all the gang members are sure to love him.
CAUTION: Never assign an important task to him. Never!
He is aware of everything non-geeky. He knows how to get a paper signed and which person does what. Simply put, he is the encyclopedia of government procedures, payment processes, refund processes, and many more. He is very helpful, especially for college students.
CAUTION: Always ask for their assistance as even small mistakes in crucial applications can take an enormous toll.
6. Helping Hand
He is the most active member of the group and can be approached at any time of the day for anything. You’ll never hear a ‘no’ from him. He is patient, valiant and uncomplaining. Sometimes you’ll have to bribe (at most a bar of chocolate) him for doing your work, and that’s entirely fair. These people remain ‘friends forever’ as their helpful nature impacts us deeply.
CAUTION: Never take advantage of their helping nature and always be there for them.
It makes me so happy to tell you that I have the entire gang with all these people. When are you getting yours?
