Less Than A Month Left Berore Departure

If you had seen through all my post before, you will realized that seldom, if not, very little, I talked about going overseas
I...never felt excited about going overseas
It's only a coincidence that I received this scholarship to go to USA
If I didn't get the scholarship, then I'm happy enough to study in our country
Looking back, I never ever thought about my future for the long term
I don't really care about it; as long as I continue living, I'll be delighted

Did I really wanted to choose actuarial science? Yes, but only because my teacher recommended it and it is the only course that are listed in MARA's website that had something to do with Mathematics (besides engineering)
I'm willingly enter the path that had in front of me, I don't give a damn about searching other hidden roads that may lead to better destination
Yeah, that's me alright

I remember in a talk about mind set, I learn that if we want to succeed, we need to have a vision in our mind
(For example, if we want to be a doctor, then we need to imagine us being a doctor, clearly and strongly)
The problem with me is, I didn't have that vision for myself
What am I going to do after I had my Degree? What am I going to be? What will be my job? How should I do in order to accomplish it?
..I never visualize it...

Haha..I'm sure my mom will be upset if she read this....






Mom?



Hey..I just remembered something...About what my mom asked me before...
"Do you really want to study overseas? Do you think you can survive out there?..If not..Just stay in Malaysia, maybe it's better for you.."
My answer? "I will be alright..Don't worry~I won't let this opportunity go just like that"
*with a smile*
But...Did I really meant what I said?...maybe I just want to make my mom feels better...That's good...
There worst thing is, I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT MYSELF!!!

Maybe, is I can't think about myself, then the only person that come is..my mom
At least, she would be the reason for my success
My mom never asked to study like she did to my younger brother
I used to wonder why

Now I realize, because she has this one thing inside her
FAITH
Yes, she has faith in me
I think that is the best reason
But I destroyed her faith behind her...
I never did like she expected...
I'm useless..

Whenever I think about going to USA, I will think about my mother
Can she hold her tears? Will she be alright?
She will think about me everyday, waiting a news about me
I will be in her prayers in every moment..She wished for the best for me..
She will cry, alone, while she smiled in front of everybody else...
If she can, she would stop me from going overseas, so that she can still see me everyday when she got back from work

But it will go to waste if I don't fulfill her wishes
That's why from now on, everything that I do is for her
I want to reach the top because of her
I wish to make her life better
I wish to make her life easier
I wish she got everything that she deserved by raising this son

Mom,
I'm sorry for all bad things that I've done
Mom,
I'm sorry for prioritize my friends first before you
Mom,
I'm sorry if I had not been like you expected

I promise, I always keep what you said to me
Because I can find no other mom just like you

p/s : There is no coincidence, everything happens according to His will

  5. pandangan aku, manusia ada limit utk mind-set...dalam kelas psychology pon aku ada wat eksperiment ttg brain type...ada org lebih kepada maths dan ada yg kat music n so on...

    ko kene realize tuh dulu...kalo tak lebih kurang cam ko berenang lawan arus...fikir2kan...

  6. mashi - yes...kalau x rugi la segala pengorbanan mereka kan...yg penting kte berusaha ;)
    p/s : of coz...sbgi anak kte pun sedih jugak biler nk tinggalkan parents...mcm muler2 masuk MRSM

    coco - yep, we always have each other and we will be on top together! Kte tolong aa member2 even diorg x kae diorg perlukan pertolongan, coz menjadi tanggungjawab kte utk pastikan kawan kte x kecundang ;D

    p/s : study group aa!hehe

    naqib - wisc the best weyh! haha

    bawangmerah - ader time kte ckp benda yg kte x maksudkan sbb kte nk jge hati orang lain...atau kte just malas nk layan sbb kdg2 benda tu agak insignificant...
    tp biler kte fikir balik, baru kte tau naper parents kte tanyer camtu...
    Allah bless our our parents

    adam - maybe mind set yg aku citer n mind set yg ko nk ckp adalah perkara yg berbeza. boleh tolong terangkan lagi?

    p/s : kadang2 aku rase baik aku masuk kelas psiko :(

    woa (words of appreciation) :
    mashi n bawangmerah - thanx for sharing your experience! maybe we, all people, had some experience which we all had gone through, so don't be shy to share it here!~

    coco n naqib - great words of motivation, thanx!

    adam - your ideas and thoughts makes me feel like you always think about the world around you, just like you said how observant you are. thanx for lending me the great ideas of yours!

  7. the mindset that i want to tell you is the same as what's u've written...imagining you can run fast before you're run on a running track can make u actually faster than u usually be...

    however, by imagining about profession, in my opinion, if u force-imagining and u take the road that others made u to take, that can lead to 'burnout'...a psychological illness which bears the meaning of mental and physical exhaustion...this can happen when you do the thing u're not happy with for a long time...

    ReplyDelete
  8. Am I right by saying that it is not a problem if we foresee about the thing that we like?

    macam aku suker math, n aku fikir aku akan jd lecturer, which something yang aku bley bayangkan

    example of mental and physical exhaustion is like when my mother wanted me to be a doctor, which I don't like, and I forced myself to imagine it

    btol x?

    btw, biler ko nk tukar gambar profile ko?hehe

    ReplyDelete
  9. yup betol tuh...

    sbb aku sndiri x sure chem engineer ni keje cane..aku taw oil ptroleum tu
    tp what sort of work that i will do nnt x nmpk..kabur..

    but after blaja cket2 ni, i kinda nmpk cket la..
    aku rse aku blaja ni dlu sbb my parents..tp bekk jgn gne alasan tu
    find it in your heart n u will never regret it
    sbb bile kte gne alasan sbb parents

  16. muler2 mmg ader aku nk amik engineering..tapi sbb nmpk ader actuarial science, yg maner aku nmpk mcm better, aku amik la..huhu

    ko pun tau aku minat math..so harap2 myer aku pun bley aa minat actuarial science nie..insyaAllah..

    ko nk jd oharmacist?naper x amik?
    dlu mase aku kecik2 pun parents aku suro jd doktor, tp biler aku semakin membesar, aku tau la yg aku dominant kat math
    so aku x amik aa medic, takat main game bedah orang bley aa
    hehe

    yg jd masalah kat aku b4 nie is aku mmg minat math, hopefully akan minat actuarial sc sekali (walaupun xde la math sgt), tp aku x dpt visualize aper yg aku akan jd nanti..
    hati tu aku balik jasin, jumper cikgu noorashida. dier pun amik actuarial sc dlu, so bnyk aa nasihat berguna dr dier

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.

The Master Algorithm, written by Pedro Domi…

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…
