It is a well known fact that when a uni student has a craving for waffles and time on their hands, they will go to every length to find themselves a dose of this deliciously fattening dessert.
Every Tuesday I have the privilege of hanging out with four of my favourite people, going to lectures together, having coffee in our break and then tutes in the afternoon. Generally we just go to a local cafe, eat toasted cheese sandwiches, sip coffee and pretend to be mildly sophisticated. But this week, it simply wouldn’t do. Why? Because we wanted waffles. When we want waffles, ain’t nothin’ else happening until we get our hands on them waffles. So what did we do? We threw all appearances of sophistication out the window, grasped at the spontaneity of youth and journeyed to the city for some pancake manor waffles. We talked, we laughed, and one of us had slightly too much waffle.
We felt fat, we felt full and the waffle hankering had been fulfilled. But no, the journey didn’t end there. Since we were already in the city and enjoying eachother’s company, why not be frivolous for just a little while longer? After all, we still had time to kill. So on went the escapade until we ended up in Bean (check out my previous blog post about this if you haven’t already) for coffee and more fun times. There was more conversation to be had, more food to be dreamed about and of course, more hilarity.
After too much food but so many good times, we parted ways with lighter wallets and heavier… everything else….
But my blog isn’t supposed to be just recounts of my day and telling people the ins and outs of my life. So what am I actually here for? Well, let me enlighten you.
Sometimes it is the most simple things in life that are brilliant and often it is the times you share with other people that are the most brilliant of all. Have you ever watched someone laugh? Seen their smile light up their eyes in a way that nothing else can? Have you ever listened to someone share a memory? Afterwards left to sit, amazed by something that you yourself will never have the privilege of experiencing? These are the things I see every Tuesday. Keeping it simple is sometimes all you need. Waffles, laughter and spontaneous adventures are, most certainly, brilliant.
People are amazing.
So keep making friends and take them out for waffles
