Right now I am in Madison, just started class two days ago. I have been in every class (except for discussion sessions), and I have to say every class is interesting. To sum it all up, I have one Math class, and 3 reading class. One of them (English 168) has a lot of reading requirements. But the books are not for heavy readers, thankfully. They are just a lot, and I mean A LOT. Manga class has a lot to read to, but we only have 5 quizzes throughout the semester, and that's it. No final exams, or even midterms. Video game class is almost the same like last year's.

So this semester, I really need to be very disciplined, to able to manage my time and money properly, and prioritize what's important. I know it's hard, and even I don't think I could do it. But owh well, I don't want to mess up again. Just be patience, only two years left.

I went to Gamestop two days ago to trade-in most of my games. I managed to receive $140 in-store credit, and bought two items with it. I also sold my Rock Band set to a sophomore, Nabil, for $100. I just want to clear my belongings before moving out.

I am still in Adam's house, and I will be moving out by Friday. After that, I need to buy a lot of utensils for my house. Maybe I'll ask in MSA group if there are people who still want to sell their items.

Well, that's about it for now. I have four classes today, first class will start at 9:55am and last class will end at 5:15pm. Till the next post~

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")

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…

Death in the Community

All of my housemates returned to their parents' house this weekend since we have public holiday on Monday. I stayed because my mother is not home and I have exam on Tuesday.

I don't mind being alone (isn't it weird for an attention seeker?), but it is too quiet in the house so I went to the nearest surau for Zuhur prayer. To my surprise, there were a lot of people there, and the main prayer room is full, compared to the usual only 3-4 rows of jemaah.

The prayer went as usual, and I think I had more peace being surrounded by people (hoho). After the prayer, the imam announced that we will be making a prayer for the recently deceased (solat jenazah). No wonder there are a lot of people.

Looking at the scene, I can't help but remember the day when my father passed away. His body was carried from Kluang, Johor to Shah Alam, and brought to a surau nearby for solat jenazah. Today's event reminded me that a community is very important for our well-being. Just imagine, ran…
