Farewell 2011

Assalamualaikum :)

"The past is gone. It went by like dusk to dawn. Isn't that the way?"
(Dream On - Aerosmith)

     So it's already 30th December 2011 eay? One more day and, farewell 2011. So I should probably write something for 2011. 

      2011 has been awesome in a whole. This year, I completed my TESL Foundation. And this year, I started my life as a Degree student. I must say that Asasi was awesome. And as we moved on to Degree we still keep comparing Degree with Asasi. In a bad way and also in a good way, but most of it is in a good way. I presume that it's because we kinda have hard times adjusting to our new life. I mean, way back in Asasi, things were so easy. It's a good thing that Kuantan's campus was not as big as other campus. To find good food, it's just right in front of the campus. Cheap and good food. And the malls are not so far. I mean, if we wanted to watch a movie, we could easily walk either to EC Mall or Mega Mall after class. Had fun, and go home. But in Shah Alam, to even watch a movie is a hassle. I mean, in term of commodity. And you have to be good with public transport. And in Kuantan, it felt safer. Well, I'm sure it's all just the same, just that we are still in the process of assimilation.

     But you know, that doesn't mean that it is a bad thing. I mean this whole comparing thing. I remember Dibah said something which I would summarize as, "Kuantan gave me lotsa awesome moments, but Shah Alam taught me lotsa awesome things." Well, yeah, I kinda add that 'awesome' word. Just to, well, uhm. Yeah. Bak to the topic, I do admit that every now and then, I still miss Kuantan. Petty terrible. But I have this to say, Asasi was great but I'm sure Degree would be just as awesome. Or probably more. Well actually in term of awesomeness, every level has it's own level of awesomeness and I can't put them in comparison because every level of our life is awesome by it's own definition.

     But this is it. Past is a good place to visit, but definitely not a good place to stay. And hey, Degree is fun after all. I got another 29 awesome classmates of B.ed TESL 1C. Cool and amazing people they are. And yes, the course mates. I am in the course that I like. Trying. Things are pretty tough at first but I am coping up well. I have amazing supportive system of friends. Things are so far so good (hope that it will always be) and I am grateful for everything Allah has given me. Put things into summarization, I would say that Kuantan is like the last stage of awesome years of being a teenager. Shah Alam on the other hand is the first stage of being an awesome adult. And I am learning lotsa things with the matters of being an adult. Eh wait, aren't we suppose to story mory on 2011? So let's see.


2011 

IV Debate - Final Drama - KL Pac Trip - Graduated Asasi - MeDSI - Interview - Missed Redang Trip - 6 months holiday - Memorable Terengganu Trip upon Kimah and Rye's visit - English camp in Mengkuang, Mempaga and Selancar - Two days experience working in Kasut You with Athirah - Few weeks experience being an English tuition teacher - Months being an official worker of pengangguran profesionalisme - Attended Nuyu's graduation - Registered as a Degree student - Met the awesome classmates of B.ed TESL 1C - Living a life as a Degree student - Alif is safely home  - (and currently) Preparing for Final =.=" The First Final Exam as a degree student (man, suddenly it sounds intense, haha) -

At least that's how I remember how 2011 was like. Briefly.
     And there's also another thing 2011 taught me. A very valuable lesson. A lesson of heart and feelings. And I thank you both for that. I really do. So thank you 2011, for being awesome and amazing. Yes, there were also the not so awesome moments, but ah well, I prefer to just let it pass. Bad things happen. We cried, we mourned and we move on. Lessons learned, grudges forgotten, forgiveness budded, regrets dismissed, pain healed. There. We shall not reminisce it over and over again. Na'ah. Too much negativity. Life is too short for that. We shall flourish our lives with happy moments so that when we look back, we could tell our grandchildren, "Yep, Grandma had an awesome life and so should you!" And let's thank Allah for everything.

Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah. :)

   Farewell 2011. You have been awesome! :D

Welcome 2012, you have a challenge.
Be as awesome as (or more than) 2011 or you lose.

Have a great year ahead people! :D

We C Things Differently

Assalamualaikum :)

     It's Tuesday, to be exact 20th December 2011. Today, we had our last Linguistic test. And today, was the last day of Counselling class. Tomorrow, we're gonna have our last Literature test. Well yeah, everything on this week will be the 'last' for semester one. It is the last week for sem 1 anyway. Hihi. But I hope that there will be no 'last' word for this friendship, except for the word long-LASTing :)

Weird Dream

Just now I had a dream. A very weird dream. I dream of him.

I dreamed that I found this beautiful place. And I was walking round of it, looking at the beautiful gardens and such, not realizing that it's actually a house. 


And I saw him.


Taylor Lautner. LOL :P


The details are sketchy though. 


Oh this random post, I'm actually trying to get my counselling done. 


Fisrt thing to submit next morning. Jyeahhh.


Typical Ain Romeli, up awake for assignment. Last minute =.="

Let's fight against PROCRASTINATION!

Done Undone

Sometimes I wish, you never said anything.

But what's done is done and cannot be undone.

You walk away so fine 

that

It makes things look so wrong if I don't do the same.

Ah well, cheer up!

Essay-few more pagesszzzz >.<

Dear Debaters

Assalamualaikum :)


     The other day, Arif, Marea and Yan datang Shah Alam. They actually came to see the debate events. Surprisingly, that VC Cup debate event is held in INTEC and I have no idea at all about that. As a matter of fact, IV was also held there so yeah, call me oblivious. Tak kisahlah. Hahaha. So to be precise, on last Tuesday they came. And since class end quite early that day, at about twelve something I got some time spared. They were already at INTEC that time so from there we went to main campus, to see the Debat juniors debating for the event of Debat Bahasa Melayu 211 Jam Tanpa Henti. And then when Yan came, we went back to INTEC to see quarter final for debate. One team of the junior made it to quarter. 


     When we got there, it was already the second speaker from the opening gov. We were there for the rest of the debate. Can't remember what was the motion but they were debating bout Syria. I think. I recognize two guys from IV. They were on the closing gov. Debated once with them. Anyway, after that, we went for dinner together at Subway (after you-nak-makan-mana-I-tak-kisah-but apparently we were choosing, rejecting and keep on you-nak-makan-mana-I-tak-kisah) haha, we end up at Subway. Dinner tastes better because Arif belanja! Oh thanks! :D  Dah lama tak jumpa, there were stories and gossips of course. So yeah, I had a pretty good time last Tuesday. Thanks guys :)

     And you know, I kinda miss debate. Though before getting into degree I kinda have decided that maybe it was time to say goodbye for debate. Well yeah, there are reasons of course which if people ask for justifications, I may lack of them to tell but still... I know, I am not a good debater. I've seen lotsa lotsa lotsa better debaters. And I may only been to two tournaments but those are rare experience that I will treasure forever. And you know, when we were driving around in UiTM we were like, "Ingat tak dulu kita duduk kat kolej ni and makan KFC dalam gelap sebab blackout" and "Eh, do you remember last time masa pergi VC ada satu...etc " quite a lot, reminiscing those moments of VC and IV. And because last IV was held at the main campus, whenever we came across anything that had to do with our memories, we were like, "Eh, ingat tak itu and ini etc." When I see the juniors debating last time, and also when Wana and me went to see Ima, Yana G and Dibah on their debate slot last time, I just realized that I miss this. 


Because this is cute.

     I kinda miss the adrenaline rush as you got the motion and then brainstorming for ideas like in less than ten minutes. I miss the butterflies in my tummy as it was my turn (still got them even for presentations, haha) and I miss discussing over the debates that we have, doing the post mortem of our techniques and all. I miss those POI's. The clap of the hand (time's indicator), tepu-tepuk meja and yell, "Hear hear!". Well, kinda. Yeah, I'm being sentimental I know. And I don't think this is odd because as I told a friend of mine, she understood. Guess she felt the same way too sometimes. But you know, as much as I love it, it also sometimes gives me a fright. Being a debater, you pretty much need to keep yourself updated and me, I'm not really that kinda person so yeah. Haha.

     But anyway, maybe all those feelings just kinda like, suddenly hit me because we were reminiscing all the good moments and it coincides with all those debate events. It is just not about debate kan. Even when we look back and reminiscing all those other good moments that we could relate to things we find dear to us at present pun we would be all like, "Ahhh, rinduunyaaaa" kan? So yeah, this is just one of mine. I had a great time being a debater even though it was only for two sems. Thank you awesome people. 


p/s: Dear debaters, stay awesome! :D
