Then I went to university, where I was thrown with another diverse bunch of people with only one factor in common - an interest in that particular university. If it wasn't for the 'miscellaneous' group of people I met there, the things we did and what that taught me - I definitely wouldn't be here today, or have met the person I'm here with.
Being thrown together with a bunch of people at the start of university was a baffling concept. It's the same as a work environment - out of all the people in the entire world, you're thrown together with a particular bunch of humans and forced to spend a lot of time with them in close quarters. If it weren't for miscellaneous groups of people coming together, some of us might not even be here. Miscellany - an underrated word if there ever was one.
