Little Joys

I was going about my day like any other day. I left my room this morning after a quick workout to get some early lunch. And then there was a cleaning lady ahead where I was walking towards to.

"Good morning!", I said to the lady.
"Good morning!", she replied.

I instantly felt happy. Just like that, my day was made. I don't know why. But I think it's the fact that I'm glad or happy to know that other people (in this case, cleaning ladies) are happy. Maybe they like their job but maybe some of them don't. But it makes them happy that students even greet them good morning. Now, I'm not saying I'm good or an angel etc. But if I were that cleaning lady, just one person greeting me would make me so happy. The fact that they recognized or noticed I was sweeping the dry leaves away for instant, made me feel like I'm appreciated. They're just these little simple things but even then, you don't see people greeting them when people pass by them.

I know everybody has their own shit going on but hey, it doesn't hurt to greet good morning to another person.

This thing I'm talking about might seem silly to you but it matters to me. I think everybody deserves to be greeted, appreciated, acknowledged and all that. It's important to remind people that we care, appreciate and let them know that WE KNOW THEY'RE THERE.

Just something to think about yknow.

Mid Terms - Life So Far #6

Yeah, you heard that right. I sat for one paper last week and another earlier today. Last week's was decent. But today..ahh. I think I might've screwed it up.

Really didn't expect the paper to turn out like how it did. Basically changed the impression I had for this particular course. Like dude, I really have to work my ass off for this one. I think I was only able to answer half of the questions confidently.

I don't want to stress myself out about this, not too much - I know I can't. But I just need to work a bit harder for upcoming exams.

This is my chance to get a bachelor's. Four years was such a long wait (not that I regret it because hell I've learned so much about life and myself). I want to be able to finish my studies on time and know in the end that I have tried my best and that's all that matters.

It really helps that I have such supportive people around me, 'Alhamdulillah'.

UNIMAS - Life So Far #5

Man..it's only been two weeks and I feel like I'm packed already haha. If you guys didn't catch my previous post, I just got into a university taking a bachelor of international economics. This coming week is going to be week 3.

Lectures aren't that bad. So far, I haven't fallen asleep during class lol. This is a good sign people - trust me, I know.

But this university is quite different from the university I've attended previously. There are lots but one of them is emphasizing our involvement in non-academic activities. They always ALWAYS remind us about the importance of getting involved in all sorts of activities, clubs and events.

By this point, I think I'm too much involved lol. Not really sure how I'm going to keep up with it but we'll see how it goes. Shouldn't be too bad. People there are nice. The lecturers are pretty chilled and open-minded and my housemates are kind-hearted people, Alhamdulillah.

I'm supposed to be asleep at this hour but I had some discussions here and there with my group-mates on our assignments. I felt my heart aching for a bit just now - a sign I should really be sleeping already welp!

Til next post guys.
