recent update :
Beyond my dream.

Hi, it’s been quite a long time I didn’t post anything, right? So, it’s fifteen days left before my flight to the states and I feel like I wanna share something here, in my blog. I bet no one will read this but um I don’t care because I write to express myself, that’s it.

Ten years ago, when I was just a kid in primary school, I never thought I would be able to go this far. You know, going to study abroad under a full scholarship, I take that as ‘far’. Back then, I didn’t even know which one comes first, PMR or SPM, stupid young me :’)

Next, when I entered secondary school. My aim was just to get into University of Malaya and I even said to my mom once that I can’t guarantee her a straight A’s for my SPM. What more to go to study in the USA, never across in my mind at all. But, all praise to Allah, I managed to get straight A’s in my SPM and after that I did everything just like everyone else were doing. Applying for scholarships here and there, a lot, without any big hope that I could get any of them.

And of course, I applied for UPU and alhamdulillah I got my first choice in the UPU application and that was already a big happiness for me but a fun fact, UM wasn’t my first choice for UPU, it was UIA. Why? Wasn’t UM my childhood dream? So, I ended up choosing UIA simply because I want to continue my study in Arabic since I learnt Arabic when I was in highschool. Not to brag but I got an A+ for my Arabic which made me think twice either to choose UM or UIA.

So, when I got an e-mail saying that I’ve been called for an interview for JPA scholarship, I am so happy. Up to this day, I didn’t even know why I was pretty confident that I would pass the interview and yes, I did. I AM SO HAPPY. IT WAS BEYOND MY DREAM TO GET TO STUDY IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Uhm, it didn’t stop there. When I entered INTEC (a place that I’ve never heard in my entire life) to do my preparation, there was another thing coming. People (esp my mom) keep saying that there was no guarantee that I will fly to the States even though I’ve been doing my preparation in INTEC. I need to pass the requirements first. So, I studied in INTEC for two years with this in my mind. The struggles? Well, the first sem is good but the next five sems, it was hell I told you. On that moments, I learnt a lot of things, I studied more than I ever did, I realised that I am not a genius (pretty obvious LOL) and I struggled so much. I know there are some of my friends who struggled more but for a person like me, my struggles compared to when I was in high school was totally different.

Anyways, I made it guys. I passed all the requirements, alhamdulillah. I applied for three universities which are Oregon State University, Pennsylvania State University and Michigan State University and alhamdulillah again I got offered by all three but I choose the later one, MSU. Why? Well, if I want to tell the reasons, it would be another long story hahaha
So that’s it. I was a kid who didn’t even know either PMR or SPM comes first and never did I think I would be doing my degree in the USA. But now, fifteen days left for me to go to the United States of America doing my degree in Nutrition. May Allah ease everything.
I think I’m going to keep my blog updated once I’m there.

I just want to say that, we never know what the future hold. Just try your very best in everything. It might not be the best for that thing but it's your best.

Sometimes life will hit you hard and tbh at the moment i feel like i'm at the lowest point of my life. I'm struggling so hard, my results are BAD.

I know comparison kills but it was such a great lie if I tell you that I am not
affected at all with my friends who got GOOD results.
I know that everyone has their own paths, I know that everyone has their own 
rezki, and I know that you don't have to be the best in the class to excel.
You define your success.
These are what I kept telling to myself whenever I feel so down even though
deep in my heart I feel so intimidated.
Some ppl even told me that, "you know what? there are persons who get worse than you?"

Yes I know and I'm grateful with what I get. Maybe this is the result that I should get for the effort that I've give. But, that is not a reason for me to feel safe and comfortable.
Come on, just bcause someone is doing worse than me so I should feel I'm doing good enough?
Man, ever heard a phrase saying that,
"if you're the cleverest person in the room, you're in the wrong room"

Nahh, forget about that. 
I don't care what they want to say.
I just want to focus on improving me, myself.

Maybe it was me who is hard to be grateful.
Maybe it was me who is not confident w Allah's promises.
It's ok, I believe Allah has set the most beautiful path for me, it was just it is not my time yet :)

If you are grateful, I will surely give you more and more.
Allah says the truth :)))

it's hard though....

hi, i'm already in my spring semester which is also my second semester in intec.
so... the same house with the same housemates....
but one thing is, my class has changed and also the classmates
at first, i thought it will be just fine..you know making new friends and all stuffs
but the thing is, it was not as good as i thought.

i was terribly attached w my old class and classmates.
yes the class too! because my new class is too small to fit 24 students!
glendale is much much bigger and just have to fit 19 students..i was like whatttttt?!
i know i know i've to be greatful for at least i've a class to study but...hm

and so far, i've never talk a lot in the class except w ain (fortunately she's in the same class w me again hahaha)
and yes, i've never join the conversation in my class ws group..
it's not I'm trying to avoid them but the thing is I just don't have the mood.
I can't force myself right?
one more thing is...I kept comparing my new classmates and class with the old one.
I know comparison kills but...it's hard though.

maybe this thing will take time.
sooner or later, this will get better (maybe)
miss you guys and the class also

Know what? Actually, at first I was waiting for my korean drama to load 
but seems like it will take forever to load.
So, I randomly open all my previous posts in this blog and there is a lot of memories, 
like seriously guys.
I felt glad somehow to write all those events in my life because I can spend a few minutes (or maybe hours) and reread with some flashbacks like a video playing continuously in my mind.
 Teenage life is really wonderful guys..haha
One thing that kept running in my mind is that,
There is post when I was in form 3 taking PMR, got the result and spent my last days in school with my friends. Then finished my SPM. Time flies so fast guys...really.. *sigh*
There are such a lot of memories that I have and they are very very valuable because I know people come and go but memories stay with us.
In my life, there were a lot of people that came and gave me great lessons and when the time came, they leave me. It's kinda sad but I know that's how life works and I've to accept that because I did the same thing as well. I entered someone's life and I left. We wish we could stay but no..we can't stay in everyone's story. There are times when we need to create a new one.
But keep one thing that will forever remain with us, memory.
Oh my God, what was happening with me talking about memories and all stuffs hahaha
Naa, just having some throwbacks just now so this is it...side effects.
Bye guys.
