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.

-Mixed Feelings-


  1. well, what's done is done. may your new path will be much better for you.

    unrelated: batman arkham city... aku da maen da. bes dowh rase nak beli lak. pe beza ps3 ngan xboxnye

  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?

  4. uhh thats the unpleasant part that you will have to bear with for quite sometimes but they will be gone eventually.

  5. btw aku ada batman arkham city tapi tak main2 lagi haha. sama jer dua2 pun

  6. Kalau semua berjalan lancar, balik 31st august ni.

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…
