Change To Prove

As we go on with life, we will go through a lot of phases. We overcome difficulties and challenges, we taste defeat, we achieved sweet victory, and we meet people of different backgrounds. All the little things that we do and experience will change us on the inside bit by bit, and comparing ourselves with from where we begin, we'll realize we have changed a lot.

Usually, teenagers are the one who will go through the important phases in life which will determine on what kind of adult they will be. From my experience and observation, this is the time where they are searching for their own worth. All those hormone rush will make them be more prone to what others say about them and they also have the tendency to risk themselves for the rewards they don't know they are looking for. Some will succeed in finding themselves, and some need to fall a few times before they realize who they really are.

The search for "who I am" is wonderful, as you will do everything in order to know yourself better. You'll do some stupid things, or some unexpected actions that will make you wonder in the future "why did I ever do that?" and you'll just laugh it off.

For the most part, there's no reason as for why we need to tell others that we've change or we even our progress. Most people don't really care, and they find it annoying. What define us is not what by how we see ourselves, but how our image is projected to others. Sometimes we are not what we think we are. But that doesn't mean we should ever stop looking for ourselves. Keep improving ourselves, and be a better person today. I think that should be the simple but effective way.

People change because they want to. People also change because they need to. There are some thing that I want in my life now, and I need to change in order to get it. I don't know if it will be going well, but this is the thing where I need to show to certain people that I'll change. It is a thing where I've talked about how serious I am, now I need to show it by actions. I need to consult a few person who have knowledge about this thing, and what changes do I need to make in order to convince those certain people. For this one thing that I desire, I'll do everything. I hope Allah will gives guidance to me on this one, and grants me the strength to overcome all difficulties in this road to my goal. Ameen.

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…
