Don't Be Sad Just Because of Exams

This semester is the worst for me in term of my performance in exam, and that's all to it. Since I am in a university, my whole life will be depended on the final results. My question is, is the GPA really the right measure of my performances?

First of all, this is not an excuse for me getting a low results. Just to let you know that my result mean the end my study here in University of Wisconsin-Madison if I do it again for any coming semesters. I am not ashamed of my result because it is low, but I ashamed at the fact that I didn't study for the semester. The reasons?

1. I don't want to study the subjects that I don't like
Ok, this is my own mistake. Really. But it is the fact. Why study for the things that I will forget in two or three weeks after the semester ends? The true thing is I don't want to study the subjects just for the sole reason of graduating. Imagine how you studied a lot for a subject that you don't like, just for pre-requisite or requirement, then you forget what you studied after the exams. I say that either you choose to not study the subjects or make yourself to like the subjects.

2. There are no math subject
Mathematics is the pure motivation subject for me. No math, no good result. I know that it is not an excuse, but math is in the top of my Sincerely-I-Want-To-Study-This-Subject list. Without mathematics, my motivation is also not there. Usually math subjects are the enhancer of my GPA, so it is not surprising that I didn't get good result without math. I learn that either I force myself to survive without math or don't go into a semester without math.

3. Play too much video games?
I don't know if I should put this in the list because I don't think I play too much. But I'll try to play less games.

I don't think there's a reason to put my self in so much misery just because I didn't get good results. First of all, our life doesn't depend solely on our results in exams. I don't want to get too caught up in the mind set of we couldn't get happy in life if we don't get to graduate and don't have jobs. Is our happiness and success in life truly depend on our achievement in exams and getting a job? I don't think so. That's why I think I shouldn't be too sad about my bad result. But I need to perform in the following semesters because this is the path that I chosen to improve my life :)

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…
