A new book

I gotta hand it to you, a month away from home for work has changed the way I think drastically. Before, being away from home for college was totally different. I did not have much to worry about. Study, design, get good grades, hang out with friends, and when I'm out of cash I'd just call my mom and dad and ask for more. I didn't do bad things or anything. It's just that I do feel guilty for not spending very wisely. Well, doing architecture most of the times does not allow me to.

It has been probably a month that I have started working in KL, away from my home but very close to relatives. Being 22 years old, I can't expect to rely on my parents money forever. For a change, I think it is time to learn and give back to them, even if it's not much. Starting out with a little capital to support me while waiting for my first pay check has opened my eyes to what it feels to support myself from day to day. The two most important things to continue living is food and shelter. Of course, transportation is also important but finding a descent place to eat with a reasonable price is quite hard the first time. So, now I know how it feels like having to plan my meals everyday. Before I could just eat whatever I want, whenever I want. 

Work is truly different than college. It has its pros and cons. Well, for one I am currently working to get exposed on how it feels like working in an architect's office, preparing my self to pursue my studies later on. Basically, I just want to try to help my self help my parents not having to spend too much on me in the future. Being the eldest, I want to be able to help them financially. So, my plan is to save some money and invest some for my own future. As for right now, I think I have my ground a little bit more steady than I was the first day I started working. 

Most of the time I just think back about how college was so beautiful. Great place, great friends, great everything! But this is how life is, I have to move on, just keeping my head up high and dealing with life. This is just a fresh new page of a new book to my already beautiful life.

Assistant Architect

Perrrggghhh!! Alhamdulillah. Sebulan bercuti kat rumah lepas habis final semester haritu memang seronok! Bukan selalu sgt balik Dungun. Dan bukan senang nk puasa kt Dungun. 4 tahun berpuasa di Seri Iskandar, rayaaa je bru balik dungun..results kelua alhamdulillah, GRADUATING!!! tapi ada hutang2 yg perlu dibayar sebelum konvo......Allah izinkan aku dpt kerja dengan mudah alhamdulillah. Kalau boleh sebenanya, nk keja kt kuala terengganu. Tp nampaknya rezeki ku di Kota raya Kuala Lumpur buat masa ni.

Dah lebih kurang seminggu kerja, hari pertama dah overtime perrrggghhhh!!! environment shock jugak sebab duk kat rumah sebulan duk rilekk tiba2 kena keja smpai malam. Honestly hari first tu dh rasa macam nk quit. Tiba-tiba aku rindu kawan2 kt seri iskandar. Rindu studio. Tapi hakikatnya semua dah berlalu. Memang manis sangat kenangan kat seri iskandar. Hajat di hati, lepas setahun dua ambik pengalaman jadi assistant architect ni, aku nak sambung balik belaja kt shah alam skali ngan budak2 studio AKi47..kalau pun bukan semua, ada dlm 5,6, 10 org pn xpee..

hidup ni, hanya Allah yg menentukan perjalanan kita. kita mampu merancang, berusaha dan berdoa sahaja.

The Journey Ain't Over

Seeing that 4 years of architecture has been over. It is time that I feel crucial for me to gain experience before continuing another 2 years for my master's degree. For how long, I just don't know yet. Only time will tell. The best part of my 4 years of my bachelor's degree is going to different places for site visits. It may have not been visits to exquisite locations but it has been wonderful being in place with very special studio mates, which I know are irreplaceable.

After this, it's gonna be WORK. But the travel doesn't need to stop there. I just feel that I haven't seen many places even in my own Malaysia. Seeing that my studio mates are from all around the country, I guess my next "Things To Do" will be travelling around Malaysia to see their hometown. See what it's like. Going to faraway destination might be fun but I feel it's just too mainstream. Well, to travel around this country itself can be hard already seeing that everything needs money.

So many things in life we feel like doing, but there's just not many time to do it. The strategy is to take things one step at a time and hope that we'll eventually get there. The final destination of every Muslim is of course Jannah. And if all ends well, we'll just meet up there. Where time is all that we got.

Cleaning Out My Closet

It's time, but it will take time. To sort everything out. With all this free time. There's not much else to do. Reorganizing my life. Because it's almost time that I start a new chapter in my life. The WORKING chapter...

It makes sense

Just looking into interesting things on facebook and found this. Credits to the artist Teme.

a change of angle just might be the solution. I never said that you are not my bestfriend anymore. I just need some time to rasionalise my thoughts of you. That's all.

It's a Tough Ride to the End..

Been thinking a lot about what I have done for my hopefully last semester. Seems like the closer I am to finishing something I tend to get lazier and lazier. Well, that's just not right because I need to pick my self up and do what I have to do. Design and my Research Papers are the two things holding me back right now. I just need to plan things to get back on trackkk..!!!!! It's the time for the cowardly YORDDDDDD..!!!!!!!!!!
