I know this can come across as insulting, but hear me out.
For the best part of four years at my secondary school, I felt like I didn't really fit. Like the group of people that I should be hanging out with weren't there. There were people I could hang out with, people like Alex, and later Shiv, made me feel less alone. It was only really towards the end of year 10 and the whole of year 11 that I had a proper circle of friends, a group bigger than 2 other people that I could hang out with. But no one else was there who I could really geek out with, who knew all the internet references and found them funny. (Ok, so Alex was starting to get there in the last couple of years, but still...) I'm still glad those guys were there, though. They helped make those 5 long years bearable, and I don't know if I could've done it without them.
And then I meet all these guys, Maisie and Will and that lot, and suddenly the only question I have is "where have you been all this time?" Suddenly, there's a group of people who won't judge me for geeking out about anything, who I don't have to worry about who may or may not overhear and what they'd think. And maybe it isn't me feeling "normal". Maybe it's just me feeling like it's ok to be "weird". Or maybe it is feeling "normal by comparison to people who will actually go out and by MLP toys at the age of 17/18". Whatever it is, I can't thank them enough for it.

@Mazriel - Fair enough. ^^

@Dr P - Well, I don't know your uni friends (yet), so it is just you (for now).

Yay feelgood again :)

My friends will probably never see this, but I feel the same way since moving in with them.
