Of classmates and new things

So, it's been over a month since classes began. Well, actually, I'm having only chemistry and physics lessons for the core courses this semester. How heavenly that is, ay? Right right. But not really. Hurm, truth be told, I've gotta say I was somewhat nervous to be in that class. Especially now having made friends with them and recently been forming a discussion group; Nana, Hanista, Eny, Fahex then some good guys..Muiz, Alep, Anas & Farouq. Hmm, pretty good a company I have there, eh? :)) Of course, I have fun. Despite the fact our DG ( discussion group) occurs 24/7, things are so far so good. (Though it's killing me every now and then, I'm getting used to it alright). Haha, just kidding. So all in all..this is my life. It's inevitable, and I've gotta get going. No matter how hard things are, life should never be this hard. Ever.

A Week in IIUM (pt III)

(Part III) Of Life, Things..and More Maybes

Well, well, I’m not only referring to my social life, but also to my overall life here. It’s not like I should depend on the “future maybes” to live well in the present. Things change and so do people. Some changes are risky and some are probably less harmful. I might feel great today and maybe a lot hopeless tomorrow. But in the end, I believe it will all happen naturally. I believe we all make mistakes; only to make them right the next time. No matter how true the saying goes that it is all to up to us to make change, indeed, but there’s no denying that Allah has His own ways to work things out. He knew better and a lot more. For better and for worse. So tell me dear friend, how baaddd can things really go?

[ Otherwise, I'm just telling myself that everything will be fine]

Of light and love,


A Week in IIUM ( pt II )

(Part II) Of Roommates and Maybes

Owh well, as for me, I am now home for the weekend (and hopefully I still will for the next one onwards). Only that I got home sick this time. *sniff*sniff* Haha, nvm. At least the fact that I’m home should be good enough, ay? Well, too bad my roomies (yes, there are 3 of them) are not going home. One of them, named Aisyah (taking Laws) and from Kedah, is obviously not going anywhere because by the time she makes it to Alor Setar, (where her family stays in Kedah) she has to rush back here in Petaling Jaya (provided that the short weekend won’t be very satisfactory for a good holiday). But I guess she’ll survive, knowing that she has a few good relatives here. While the other two, named Tasha (also taking Laws) and Intan (taking Bioscience) are both from Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. Truth is, they are indeed neighbours! Much to my surprise, I just learned the fact about Intan and I...we are indeed birthday mates, ( March 10, that is). Haha. I tell you what, these 3 people are just awesome. Each of them has different personality I have yet discovered but they're still nice in their own ways. It might be too soon to say that perhaps, I should give it a week or two (or even months) and see the difference. Well, maybe, so to speak. But I’m not judging, it’s just a genuine fact. It’s like you know, when you know. Simple as that. Furthermore, whether I like the difference or not, does it really matter? Maybe, they might not sound as good as they do now or that we might have silly misunderstandings in future. But it’s just a maybe; a mere admonition. Right now, I'm just happy and there's nothing else to say ;-)

A Week in IIUM*

(Part I) My New Life (c’est-a-dire)

*Smile*<--this time it’d better look straight, ay. Haha. Well, yea, that’s about it. Nothing much going on last week. For the 1st year students, it was just a typical stressful week a.k.a ta’aruf programme (or better known as orientation week) Anyway, I’ve gotta say having stayed for over a week or so, it is indeed a good place to be. The place might not be that all good-looking, (with the staining blocks and old fa├žades, etc) but hey, it’s just a place of study. I like the moderate look though; the facilities, buildings, food..everything. But apart from all that, the people and the services are great. (Well, at least, that’s what I think, so far.) So, back to the programme, it was unsurprisingly customary. Some programmes were good and some were just plain dreary. There were briefings on departments and courses, group activities, campus tour..y’know, the usual stuff. We even had a few singing sessions of the matriculation song (!) I think we did sing up to 10 times a day. Haha. How was that for fun, ay?
