Food and Gratitude

Today I woke up late since I have no class and I slept kinda late last night surfing the internet. Since I was really blurred and sleepy, I sat at the sofa doing nothing (reading the latest issue of Bleach actually). The empty stomach of mine asked me to fill it with something to eat. It was already 2:00 pm, but I am toooooooo lazy to cook for lunch.

The reason? Night arrived early during winter; it will be dark outside by 4:30 pm, and we usually eat for dinner at 5-6 pm So usually we 'push' our lunch to become dinner (but not dinner to supper). Breakfast sometimes become lunch.

At first I thought to just order food from campusfood.com (eventhough I had little money left). I almost cried (manga style T.T ) when I think about foods and my money. When I take a look at my refrigerator, suddenly I got an inspiration to make a simple breakfast (or lunch? I don't know). I said to myself that "at least I won't die of hunger *desperate smile* ". Then, I started to cook~ I made a sandwich using two slice of bread, a Boca patty, hash brown, scrambled eggs and mayonnaise. That was my desperate attempt to make something that can fill my stomach: just add anything that seems to fit. I made three of them, each one for me, Irshaad and Khairi.

When I eat it, I felt like want to cry again (no, this is not Yakitate! Japan). It was not because the food is delicious (it is, in fact), but it was because the sandwich really made my stomach full. For the first time ever I felt something like this. Usually I never get full with my own cooking. What can I say? I guess this is the way Allah shows me to be grateful with the foods around me. I don't have to buy food from restaurant :) Even though I am not a good cook like Irshaad and Khairi, I still have the skill to make great and simple food, breakfast especially. Thank you Allah for this great little event that you showed me :)

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")

Finally, I reached Disc 2 in FFVIII. Still on the way to rescue Squall from the torture room. Speaking of Squall, remember the time where he was stabbed by icicle spear from Edea? There's an interesting theory where Squall was already dead at that time (Aerith died after being stabbed by Sephiroth's Masamune once, too). Everything that happened after that was, you guess it, just a dream. Click here if you want to read the full theory.

EDIT: One theory also states that Square had some other plan for Aerith. Here's the link.

Let say this theory is true. During the start of Disc 2, we were brought to the dream of Laguna. So it is a dream, inside a dream. Looks like Square had done it way before Christopher Nolan's Inception!

*ehem* anyway, most fan's theory are awesome to read. But no one can truly justify and give best explaination on where the hell do Necron in Final Fantasy IX came from. There were no hints or whatsoever about him, and suddenly he appeare…

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…
