Tell Me

I am not proud that I am going back to Malaysia. Everyone else go back because they have achieved what they have to do here: to graduate. Me? I'm going back because I don't think I am capable of continuing.

It was so hard to decide. Really, really hard. To go on with just one year left with a little hope of doing it, or turn back and change the path, but longer. There are no right or wrong, just choices.



I am happy that I will go back to Malaysia. I am sad that I need to leave Madison. I am excited for something new that is waiting for me. I feel sad thinking of all the memories here in Madison. I am happy to continue in Malaysia. I am sad I can't graduate in Madison.

I try to put a strong front, so that I won't whine a lot to others in the same time I don't keep feeling sad and down. Just in my blog and to certain people (thank you). I don't want to run away. I don't want to lost contact with my friends. I don't want to just suddenly disappear on my friends. I want to know how they are progressing. I don't want them to fail just like me. I pray that nobody will repeat what I repeat.

To be honest I don't if I should feel happy, sad, just neutral, or a little bit of both. Guess I, too, am concerned with what people are going to say about me. Whatever they want to say about me, I just hope it is the truth, even if it's bad. That's why I decided not to keep this as a secret.

  2. Yeah, I agree with Leng Chai, though I personally don't know what to say. If I'm in your shoes, even I wouldn't know how to react.

    It's good enough that you're moving forward instead of slumping into depression. Just hope for the best in the future. Like the cliched words that people spout out always say: 'Apa-apa yang berlaku, mesti ada sebab dia'.

  3. Leng Chai - some things just continue to linger unconsciously. Like "what will people say about me?" and "what are they going to say to me?". But hey, I'll try to focus on what's important :) nie yg malas nak jumpa family2 lain since nak dekat raya dh -_-

    kai - I'm lucky to have a lot of people who helped me to guide me on what to do :) kai bila balik malaysia?

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")

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…

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…
