Giving Up

Giving up is part of life. Well, it is a possibility that until this day, you never given up but to others out there, they have felt what it's like to give up on something. Life isn't easy. It's inevitable to avoid problems and hardships in our lives. School, homework, jobs, assignments, college, love, marriage, children, you name it. There are bound to be problems in everything that we do. We, human, are given a choice to give up if things aren't going our way. Please read this until the end first before you assume that I want everybody in this world to give up.

We give up when we know we couldn't finish a job.
We give up when we know studying won't change our grades.
We give up when we know a task is too hard to complete.
We give up when we are waiting for so long.
We give up when we know there aren't any place to hide.
We give up when we know going straight ahead will only lead to despair
We give up when we don't see any hope.

We give up because we don't want to be in despair for too long.
We give up because we have already suffered enough.
We give up because doing things the way there are now isn't going to change anything.
We give up because we want to put an end to this misery.

Yup, there are a lot of reasons for us to give up. After all what we've been through, sometimes it's better just to give up rather than hanging for a false hope. But the thing is, we give up because we want to be HAPPY. In the same time, all we the things we do until now, is also so that we can become happy. We study, we work, we marry, we wait, it's all because we want to be happy too. We put hopes and make efforts because we want to be happy.

We do have choices in life. Keep on walking the tough path, until we reach our happiness. Give up now, and search for an alternate route to our happiness. As long as we don't give up our life, things are bound to change if we do something, and that including giving up in what we are doing now.

What about me? At least right now, I don't want to give up. If I give up now, then I will lose all my chances to change thing. But in the same time, I know, if I give up now, I can just abandon this sadness and search for a new happiness. In the end, I choose to be stronger so that I can take on this hardship.

Ask not for an easier path, but ask for a stronger you :)

By the way, I know my writing right now isn't that good and it's kinda messed up. I just don't know how to put it in better wordings. Anyway, I don't think that many people will read my blog lol.

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…
