It took me a considerable while to come up with this name, because truth be told, the character is a little bit hard to match. Darcy is a smart girl, who wears casual like all the time, kind of like me in that regard. I don’t see much of her these days so I don’t know her as well as I would like to but she’s very indoors-y, so I suppose she reminds me a lot of myself. I’m taking the name Darcy from Darcy Lewis, played by Kat Dennings in Thor and Thor: The Dark World. I’ve learnt she does like her Marvel movies.
But she is still incredibly important, because without a doubt the last year here at uni has been one of the best academic years of my life and she was the first new face I met in the year. It was a social gathering, designed by a charity group to try and help people make friends, an icebreaker if you will. I had run into Ned at the party and he was hanging out with her. Thinking back, I think our conversation had some pretty standard stuff, just finding out what course we were on and stuff. One of the things that I like about Darcy is her laugh. I know if she reads this ever, she’ll probably think I’m a creep but her laugh is magical. You can hear joy in that laugh and it always makes me smile when I hear it, regardless.
Like so many, I didn’t get to personally know her but she’s always fun to hang out with and can be pretty funny, too. She showed me that being a little bit awkward doesn’t have to mean regretting meeting people but instead, it just showed who you are. You don’t have to spend every waking moment trying hard.
Quick side note, Ned and Darcy are the first two people I’m talking about in regards to this last year. I already knew Ned and now I’ve met Darcy. By the end of the night, we signed up to the society that deigned the social and I ended up befriending some of the most amazing people who were on the committee. So the next couple of posts is gonna be about them.
I wanted to personally say, that I’m looking forward to writing these next few posts. Though, I know that they won’t read this themselves, I just have to tell someone how I feel about them and I don’t have the stones to say it to their face.
Up next: Leo
