Just Be Yourself

Just be myself?
How can I when I don't have one?

I never had one
Maybe, really
I don't know for sure
If people ask me
"Please describe yourself"
I don't know
Stop asking

I never had an intention on my own
Following what others are doing, that's what I did
If my parents didn't tell me to go to boarding school
I will never do it
If my friends didn't apply for MRSM Jasin
I will never go there
If my mom didn't scold me for not applying any scholarship
I will never apply one
If my mother didn't ask me to have car license
I would never had one
If I did not have the opportunity to study at INTEC
I would not care
If my friends did not apply for University in US
I never will
If I never had an opportunity to study overseas
I will be happy enough to study in Malaysia
I only remember that I struggled to get to you
That I wanted you so much
I didn't know how to maintain it
I'm truly sorry, dear

Who am I?
There are only a few things that I know
Someone who once love maths very much
Someone who love to play video games
Other than that?I don't remember
nor can I tell others
I really don't know
If I don't have others besides me
I won't survive

I always wanted to be like persona I know in video games
I always wanted to be like characters that I like in movies
and suddenly
I forgot to be myself

Who am I actually?
I'm still searching

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…

Death in the Community

All of my housemates returned to their parents' house this weekend since we have public holiday on Monday. I stayed because my mother is not home and I have exam on Tuesday.

I don't mind being alone (isn't it weird for an attention seeker?), but it is too quiet in the house so I went to the nearest surau for Zuhur prayer. To my surprise, there were a lot of people there, and the main prayer room is full, compared to the usual only 3-4 rows of jemaah.

The prayer went as usual, and I think I had more peace being surrounded by people (hoho). After the prayer, the imam announced that we will be making a prayer for the recently deceased (solat jenazah). No wonder there are a lot of people.

Looking at the scene, I can't help but remember the day when my father passed away. His body was carried from Kluang, Johor to Shah Alam, and brought to a surau nearby for solat jenazah. Today's event reminded me that a community is very important for our well-being. Just imagine, ran…
