Growing apart




Ustazah saw how tight me, Jaja, Q and Jared were and so she shared with us her experience of/in/on (?) friendship. She told us, back in the 'days', she had a best friend. You know how you have best friends and then you have like this one ultimate best friend. A best friend that you're the closest too, spend the most of your time with, the one that's like your own sister...

Well her ultimate best friend and her basically just grew apart from each other. They hardly see each other and even when they do it's because of marriage or a new baby. And she also said that it wasn't like 'long time ago' anymore every time they met. And that's because after high school, both of them went to different colleges, different universities and they had different jobs. They hardly had anything in common anymore and so they naturally just grew apart.

And she said to us... or was it to me? But she said, as you grow older, there will be a time when you will slowly just grow apart from each other. All the fun times that you had would just be memories. So she was telling us that one day, there might be a time when we just won't talk to each other like how we do now. 

Honestly, I personally feel that growing apart from a best friend or a group of best friends would come one day for me. And it won't be because we stopped caring about each other but because that's just the way life is. 

However, I'm not planning on 'growing apart' from my best friends any time soon. And I'm hoping that when I do grow apart from them it would be because I died. So lets keep our friendship real tight forever...

Bored


We're always sitting around doing nothing. After getting bored of 'doing nothing', we go tweeting about how bored we are of doing nothing. And after waiting for retweets and mentions that we're not even going to get, we'll go on Facebook and post it up there. A friend recently said to me "If you're bored, it means that you're not doing something that is beneficial,"... it went something along those lines. 

And so I gave it a little thought. A list of things came up in my head
  • Clean your room
  • Make your bed
  • Wipe the windows
  • Distribute the clothes
  • Wash the plates
  • Sweep the floor
My reaction to that was 



So I realised what my problem was. It wasn't that I had nothing to do. It wasn't that there was nothing for me to do. It's just that I was lazy. And then when people go around calling me lazy, devils around me would put suggestions up in my head of ways to batter those people up. That made me think again. Is it me? Is it really just me? Isn't it the devils... the satans...? 

From then on, the answer to overcome boredom became so easy.

Go against the satans. Fight them. Batter them up. Tell them that they are wrong. Get up and start doing good deeds.

And here I am, still sitting...

Graduation cake in 2018 please?


Sometimes, out of nowhere, something would pop up in my head... So yesterday, while chatting with my mates something suddenly popped up in my head. And it was of something I wanted and I don't usually ask for stuff... unless it has something to do with Taekwoon. 

But this time, what I wanted was a graduation cake for my graduation... in 2018? And no, I dont want an expensive fondant covered cake. I just want a normal failed cake. A cake that has been purposely made to look as if something bad has happened to it. One with a visible failed structure. But the thing is, the key point of the cake should be a banner or anything really that says "Trust me, I'm an engineer". 

And that is what I want as a graduation cake. Susu said that she'd get it for me. Yeay me?

MAS

UTP MAS MAY 13


I walked into the Chancellor Hall and suddenly, my phone rang. Rock Ur Body. Can you imagine how panicked I was. I didn't know where the heck my phone was and I was just very serabut. Registered with Puteri and we ended up being roommates. Which was good. The new room was cool, with a separator in the middle so Puteri wouldn't need to see my annoying face 24/7. Lucky her. 


Orientation was tiring. We had to pray Maghrib and Isyak at the mosque. And Subuh in the surau. Not complaining. However, every single day the activities ended after 12. And we had to walk all the way from our room to wherever our activity was held and back. Bless the facilitators though, it was raining pretty heavily on one of the days and they provided us a bus. 


Became friends with some cool people. Husna, Ely, Puteri and Qis who we met later. Husna started hanging out with us when she asked Puteri if they could walk back together. And later on I met Husna and you know, when you have the same intention then you'll be able to get along together. Hur hur. Met Ely later because she came in the next day. Met her in the mosque. Then there's Qis who is Ely's classmate but we got close because of SRN. And basically, all of us were able to get along together and I spent my 12 days in UTP with them.


We were basically the front row kids because that's where we sat every single time we were in the hall. But sitting on the front row never stopped us from sleeping. I remember this one time, I can't remember what was going on but there were cameras out and we had to wake each other up every time it comes in front of us. 


On our first day or second, I couldn't remember, we had this ice breaking session so people had to write what they thought about other people on this post it note that everyone stuck on their back. We played so many games and generally, it was fun. We did the Dunga and some others... that I couldn't remember. There was this one time, we were woken up in the middle of the night because there was a fire drill. Pretty annoying. I'm just randomly typing what I can remember to be honest.


After my first Islamic Studies class, I walked all the way from my room to Ustazah's room. It was a nice walk. Not really. I don't really know why I went, I just wanted to see her for fun. People said that she's scary but she looked pretty cool to me. People wanted to elect me as an assistant project manager or something for a class project so when I told her I was leaving, she made a face. Joah. Haha.


Thinking skills was just well fun. In the first class, the lecturer came in and started speaking British English and I was like oookkkaaaaayyyy. And then he handed out this one survey for us to fill in and there was a question that confused me so I asked him and then instead of thinking skills, we had a 'how to pronounce english words properly' class. All because of me... Yeah... all because of me. But everyone had fun repeating what Ameri said. So, you're welcome. In my second and last Thinking Skills class, Ameri asked what my name was and Jay's name and Rubin's name and this one other guy's name because we were the only one who actually participate and I told him that I was leaving and he was like "Aww." He then called me after class to ask what my plans are and all. :')

My lecturers were fun and the lectures were fun. But all the assignments scared the shit out of me. There were soo soo soo soo many, I couldn't even count. Well technically, I can but you know. I freed my Friday so I had nothing on Friday but then I was packed with class on Monday. But then I had Modern Music on Saturday. Smart. 

Oh so every single day, after the first week, we had to get our own food so we'd walk around campus to get food. Went to V5 once and was awed by the Village. It looked like a hotel not a hostel and it had a really nice cafe with western food. Oh and at Pocket D, there's a Western Food shop so it's cool. Had lunch there a few times. 


Me and my mates joined the SRN team for props. Kak Sarene and Abg Ayol were our facilitators and they were cool. We were able to go back stage and you know, just check out what it's like to work with the MedTechs... and it was scary. Haha. Talking about MedTech, I'd totally join them if I stayed. They're like the coolest bunch of people in UTP. Mad talented and well, just cool. They had this presentation up to introduce themselves and the introduction to their introduction was just so cool. This one time, they had the speakers going and then they played with the lights. Too. Cool. 


There were days when we were shouted at by the discipline team. As if I cared. *flips hair* They were mad, getting mad at us for no valid reason. Like shouting at the kids who came about the kids who didn't. And shouting at the people who were late at the ones who weren't. That's typical though. The guy who's always shouting had this weird accent when he spoke so that was amusing. I think he's from somewhere up north or something. But they don't really speak English even though everything was supposed to be in English. 



On my last non-public-holiday day there, I went to get some souvenirs for myself... so I could show off later in KMKN. Hahaha. I wanted to get a UTP jacket but I was wondering how they would post it to me. I'm thinking of getting one now... right now but I think they've closed the preorders so oh well. Too bad. Husna told me not to waste my money. HAHAHA. 

And I had to walk to the mosque by myself on one of the nights but then there were a few girls so I caught up with them so that I wouldn't have to walk there alone. They asked me if I was a mix. Sure I am. I honestly felt really comfortable around Husna and Ely and Puteri because all of us spoke in English. Plus, when Husna, Ely and I speak in Malay, we would sound weird so we had something in common. Talking about them reminded me of this one restaurant in there that has the nicest naan ever. Mayyynnnn now I'm hungry. 

Ely, Puteri, Husna, Qis, Kak Ani, Kak Shira, I hope I'd get to meet people like them in KMKN and UniKL. Life would be fun that way. And within the 12 days I was there, me mates didn't really text me except for this one person. And I'm thankful. So thank you.
