Ok for today’s post I thought I would share a nice, short, and simple story of something that happened awhilez back. It was around when I was in 9th or maybe 10th grade. I was in some kind of science class at the time, I’m thinking it was Biology but I can’t really remember exactly. What I do remember was that on that day we got into groups to do a project. Which for us was always amazing because it meant we could talk amongst each other without getting into trouble. And if you have ever worked in group projects before(which is highly likely), then you would know that often times you end up mostly talking about everything other than what you are supposed to. 😛
For example, me and my friends back then would always go on about whatever games we were playing at the moment. As I was doing on this particular day too with the guy sitting next to me. But something happened to take my focus away this time. It happened to be something I overheard from the girl to my right. Someone had been trying to make plans with her to go someplace when out of the blue she said she couldn’t because she was planning on watching more Coffee Prince episodes. I remember thinking “what the heck” and turning my attention to her with my eyes wide open! O_O(looking something like this)
Clearly she was taken aback by my response as well. She must have been like, “why is this dude staring at me like that all of a sudden.” haha Luckily I got a chance to explain myself. Telling her that I was pretty much shook because of the Coffee Prince name drop. At that moment her face went from to 😀 . That is when she asked me if I was a K-drama fan. I was like yeah and no joke she proceeded to start listing of every drama she must have seen, to see if I had seen/heard of them too. It was a really fun moment.
As it turns out it was the first time both of us had ran into another person who was into Asian Dramas. Our friends were aware of them for sure BECAUSE of us but instead they were into things like manga and anime. Which I guess is kinda close since some of them get turned into J-dramas. However it isn’t quite the same. But what was truly crazy in all of this is that by that point we had been classmates for awhile and yet we hadn’t figured it out that we shared this thing in common. Instead it was by random chance. It’s enough to make you wonder if there could be someone around you right now who shares a similar interest you don’t know about.
What’s cool is that from that point on we were on friendly terms. So now I open it up to you guys. Have you ever had a similar experience? If you have had one don’t be shy and please share it. ^_^
