Four Days of Meeting Old Friends and New Friends

Praise be to Allah for the chance that He gives to me to write this post

I had been very busy since Thursday 7/16 for I had gone to a few places, which are not very near

From Thursday until the day after, I went to Jasin to take my SPM certificate from my former school, Maktab Rendah Sains MARA Tun Ghafar Baba
I drove from Shah Alam with four of my friends
The meeting with my old friends is really meaningful, as there are a lot of things that we can talk about

From Friday (7/17) evening until Sunday (7/19), I went to Summer Training Camp at Kem Rimba Tamu, Batang Kali
I was given the chance to meet seniors from American University to get a lot of useful information for me and my friends

Both of this two events changed something inside me, which I will tell later
I really wanted to post it today, but I felt very exhausted and sleepy right now
Maybe because I had not been traveling like this before...
zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

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…
