Columbia needs more friendships like mine with Maddy Harden

Advertise Donate Read the latest issue Newsletter. Probably in Carman. We had a very nice, albeit brief, conversation. Between September and August , my relationship with Maddy was virtually nonexistent. Maybe initially we exchanged some polite smiles—waves, even—when we passed each other; however, as we moved further away from that one, fated NSOP pregame, we stopped acknowledging each other altogether. We acted as if we were complete strangers. Whenever we passed and ignored each other I fully knew she was Maddy Harden.

I knew that we had met, when we met, and where we met. Yet, we spent the entirety of our freshman, sophomore, and junior years pretending not to know each other—or at least, not acknowledging that we did.

I was back on campus at yet another party read: I am very cool. A friend of mine began talking to a girl that he knew. He introduced us. What was I supposed to say?! Of course I knew Maddy, but Maddy and I had implicitly agreed to not know each other every day for the past three years.

However, much like Passover, tonight was different from all other nights. There is no actual uncertainty. Maddy had opened the floodgates. I followed with a full confession and confirmed that we had, in fact, met and that this meeting took place three years earlier and it was in Carman and it was at a party during NSOP. And guess what? She remembered too. We laughed about the whole thing and spent the next few minutes catching up on the past three years of our lives. Fast forward to this semester, and things between me and Maddy have never been better.

Whenever we pass each other, we make it clear that we are not strangers. We smile, we wave, and we even say hello. I know the case of me and Maddy is not unique. Maybe you met this person at Days on Campus. Maybe it was at an audition, or maybe your FroSci discussion section. Quite the opposite: I think it comes from a place of insecurity. However, what if you acknowledged meeting someone who actually had no recollection of meeting you? Total embarrassment! This person was apparently important enough to stick in your memory, but you were not relevant enough to stick in theirs.

The safe choice, then, is to not take the gamble and act like the person is a stranger. The next time you see that person you are pretending not to know, cut the act.

Acknowledge that you know each other. If you make the connection, I predict that the other person will admit to pretending not to know you as well. You have a new person at Columbia with whom you can connect. If there is someone whom you know but have been pretending not to, share this article and tag their name in the caption.

All that matters is that you take the leap and make the connection. Jacob Kaplan is a senior at Columbia College studying history.

As a Christian, I learned at an early age that God was very important in my life.

Such was the bond between them, Fletcher has served as the inspiration for her upcoming book, A Friend Like Mine. The book humanises people with disabilities and shows they should be treated no differently to anyone else. The East Victoria Park resident said the main challenge was writing for a younger audience while also dealing with delicate, mature themes. Warne said she bonded with Fletcher, who attends Hammond Park Primary School, almost instantly during their first meeting and she soon realised how alert and smart he was.
