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
But
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
But
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")

Because of What Someone Said

So a few days ago, I visited Borders Bookstore in IOI City Mall to get a book for a friend of mine. Incidentally, it is also my favorite bookstore, due to its quite nice selection of books and its location from my house. Anyway, the book that I wanted to buy was The End of Average by Todd Rose. I already finished that book (I want to write about it as well later), so I recommended it to my friend and she asked me to buy one for her. I had an exam on the day after but as far as I'm concerned, reading is more important than any exams that I will most likely forgot in a few weeks.

Also, each time I visit a bookstore, I will always walk out the store with at least one book. So, besides the book that I intended to buy, I bought two other books because I found it interesting. I know, it is a truly 'good' idea to buy two books when you have an exam tomorrow. In this post, I want to talk about the reason why I picked up one of the books.

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…
