Back when I was in high school, I never had a roommate that I can get along well. Not that we had a fight, it just that we don't have a "chemistry" between us. But not until when I was Form 5 (17 years old) that I had a roommate that is one of my closest friends. By closest friends, I will refer to the friends that I played basketball together with. We are all very close at that time, even until the school ended. This friend of mine, let call him Arif (not the real name), is very one of a kind friend of mine. When we were Form 4, his partition is just beside mine, so we share stories a lot. During earlier Form 5, I thought that it was my happiest year of all because I finally have a roommate that I can get along with.

Well, that was what I thought anyway. Everything was turned around just because of one reason. He had a girlfriend, and she is one year younger than us (Form 4). Of course, I didn't really mind them because...well everyone has feelings. I really didn't care about his relationship that much, I mean I didn't really asked what I shouldn't ask, but at least I hear if he has something to tell me.

But he started to irritated me when everything that he did only about his girlfriend. They will meet like at least once a day (even for only like a minute), on phone every night where he will go to a room where there is no one else and cover his head with a pillow, and also on phone every morning before the morning assembly. That doesn't even include the total time he held to his phone and keep typing messages. Usually, I don't really care. But I just cannot bear it when a guy did everything just for his girl. I felt very uneasy because it was just too much. I never intended to just silent and keep myself away from him, but I did.

Since that moment, like earlier in the first semester, I never talk to him, and didn't even care to catch a glimpse of him. When playing basketball, I forgot his presence in the team or opposite team, unless I NEED to. I only talked to him on a few occasion. I even just a so-so reply when he talked to me. I didn't know how did I survive doing that for almost one whole semester.

I don't remember exactly when, but I started to accept the somewhat new him. I think that deep in my heart, I had already forgiven him. The second semester started greater, and we are on a good term again.

When think back about what I did, I don't know if it just me who being ignorant. Maybe I took things seriously when I shouldn't. I know it was my fault too. I hope I learnt my lesson at that time. After all, we shouldn't make enemies.

Who would have thought that the same thing might happen again in the future

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…
