Winter Break

After less than a month of holiday, class gonna start next week. The break is quite long, but not long enough for me to wonder "What am I going to do?" even once. But ironically I didn't do much during this break. I stayed in my room for more than 90% of the break.

I never went out of Madison. Most my friends had the chance to take a trip to travel. Some even traveled to at least 5 different states. Even my friends that came to visit Madison went to a tour to Chicago with my friends here at Madison. I never really interested in going places, so I don't really mind though. But if I have the chance, I want to go to meet my friends at other universities. At least that give me a motivation. Other than to meet my friends, maybe the only event that will make me want to travel is E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo).

Most of my time was spent playing PS3 games, reading manga and exploring games website. It is the usual stuff that I did when I was in Malaysia. Maybe I need to plan more and start to save money so I can fill my next holiday with more meaningful events.

Until today, there are still a lot of unfinished games. I need to concentrate on one game at a time instead of taking a lot at one time. It will be a lot better that way. At least I had achieved Platinum trophy for Uncharted 2, so that's one game down~ Next is Bayonetta (currently playing), then Dead Space. Maybe inFamous if I have the mood (only 7 trophy left). Demon's Souls would be the most difficult to finish :( Owh wait, class is going to start next week. Double sadness for my gaming side.

This holiday too, I had a little change in myself. I started to ignore others and prefer to stay alone in my room. Maybe I AM sad for the fact that I achieved low results in last semester. Sometimes I feel like I don't belong here and I don't have the right to mingle with others. I know, who really care if our friends didn't achieve well in academics, it doesn't change the fact that we are all friends. But I find it hard to forget it. Owh well, I shouldn't let this get into myself. The last semester is now history, and I have the responsibility to never repeat it. Stay positive~ >.<

At least I need to make a good start for this semester. No need to get all down, right? This month will have the least updates for my blog I guess.

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…
