I Am Back!

Salam. It has been more than a month since I posted my previous entry. Since then a couple of my friends kept asking for my updates. Thanks guys. I really appreciate your support. Because of the finals fever, I did not have any mood to write anything for my blog. It was so hard for me since it was the final for my first semester. I had hard times and I was down most of the time because of the stress. I even cried until I got a fever! Even though it's now winter break, I still have 2 papers left to write. Others are enjoying their vacation with a full heart but not me. I could not feel the spirit of holiday because I kept thinking about my papers. But then I realized that God has given me the opportunity to have this kind of vacation. So why don't I enjoy it and then I'll concentrate on my papers?

For this winter break, I went to an annual conference for Malaysian and Indonesian Muslim Society in Atlanta, Georgia. Since I am the only Malaysian in my university, I flew alone to Georgia. Other Malaysians traveled together by car to the destination. I was happy to meet other Malaysians there. During the 5 days in the hotel, I kept bringing my books in each session I attended. Killing 2 birds with a stone. I was listening to the discussion while looking for points for my paper from the books.

After the conference, I joined some Malaysian students from Purdue University for a road trip to Florida. I'll update in detail about my winter break in future posts including pictures. For now I just want to inform that we had great time in Miami, Universal Studio, Sea World Park and Busch Garden. It was so much fun!!
Now I think I am recovered from my 'depression period.' I think I can continue writing my papers and I can continue feeling the enjoyment of life. I'll continue writing for my blog, expressing my passion for things such as K drama, K pop, life and others. Pray for mo to be strong ok?

See you in the next post. Sayonara!

I was enjoying my first caramel apple at Universal Studio, Florida. It was so good! :D
