The Story of My Ex that I Nicknamed Nirvana

The nickname Nirvana was quite heavy even for me, but it signaled how deeply I felt about the girl.

What is Nirvana?

Nirvana, also known as losing Samsara, is the state of enlightenment and Buddhists believe that one dies when they reach the state of Nirvana. To be enlightened or to reach Nirvana is the goal of living and entails losing all attachment to worldly things and trusting oneself and not the world.

Who is Nirvana?

The teachings of Buddha hold many secrets to life, but this is a story of a girl I nicknamed Nirvana. I will refer to her as Dee, not her real name, for this article. Her real name was that of a flower; so beautiful. I met Nirvana in my second or third year of campus. We were in the same school, but she was a year ahead of me. This is how it happened.

The Club: The Place We Met

One night at university, my friends and I decided to go to a club. It was one of those ‘let’s go to the club’ days, and I think it was on a Friday, and those who decided to go, including me, went to a party in a club not so far away. I love Land Cruisers, and that day we were lucky to get a lift from someone driving one of those long game park Land Cruisers.

A friend of mine stumbled on some friends on the way, and we were lucky to get a lift to the club. The club was a few kilometers away, and we were so excited to get there. The night was going well, and, honestly speaking, I was a little buzzed and under the influence.
