[Poem of the week] Hope is the thing with feathers

Long time no poems
Here's a sprinkle of an Emily Dickinson flavor. I wish I had lived in her time, we'd make great friends :3


“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me

Quick Update

Hola peoples!

long time no see (my new catchy phrase)
I've had a blast during my -what i call- "personalized vacation" with my family who joined me about a month ago... I finally had my real holidays ever since I came to Malaysia and am glad to say that I've spent them to the fullest! Alhamdoulillah^^

So, since am too busy/not so lazy, no really, am done with laziness (katching!) I will post all the pictures (more than 200, I don't think I can do that :3) and the trips and places and stuff.

For now, let's just resume the situation:

-First things first, i refueled and am back on track Alhamdoulillah, it's exactly what I needed.
-My mood: I don't think it can be ruined anymore because honestly, I don't think there's anything left on the "ruined my mood" list (P.S to life : it's a rhetorical phrase x3)
-Guess who got her chemicals!!! Booooyaaaa! I can't believe it either OuO but the time to kick butts is finally here.
-I think my passion for knowledge has been magically and mysteriously restored, am reading and writing again which is a blessing from above.
-Which reminds me, I am 17 books behind schedule on Goodreads x3 it's so funny... right? ahem...
-Patience really pays off, I've been through hell and look at me now xD seriously, i live in hell i.e. Kuantan, but I won't complain anymore : Kuantan, you have grown on me like a mushroom and am used to you now so bring it! no am kidding, stay the way you are, don't bring anything -_-
-am no longer stressed or agitated or whatever blood boiling phenomenon that used to occur before, they're all gone with the wind... sayonara!
-Oh and last before least, am rolling in Algerian food *rolls rolls* no just kidding, my friends ate then all :'( which reminds me, I have lots of friends now xD it sucks when it comes to distributing goodies, i should break up with some of them :3
-and last! well... I guess that's it. Stay tuned/or not, i'll try to keep things updated like I always say and come back a month later meeeeeeh >u<

Got French class so I gotta roll
peace out peoples!

KLian days

Greetings humans,

I've always thought about what my life would be like if I were studying in KL instead of the miserable land of Kuantan :/ it'll be memorable... every single second of it, am sure.


Hot showers, an immense variety of food, transportation everywhere and at every time, and all of my close friends around... what could a person ask for more than this?

am gonna be spending few weeks in KL which is something I really need after the roller coaster I went through. Am thinking of visiting many places and trying as much food as I can before I go back to starvation land >n<

Hopefully, I'll manage to finish my lab work once I get back then spend the rest of my days in KL 222 *sparkly eyes* it's a long way through but am willing to suffer for the summer and get this over with.

I was counting down the days to attend the International Congress on obesity and it's been almost a year now but when the time came, I missed the most important part of it :'( I cried when I realized I had missed the sessions I was willing to attend the most... oh well, at least the other things I came for and that were more important have been accomplished so Alhamdoulillah. Am still gonna attend the rest of the conference inshaa Allah and try to enjoy it.

I don't have much to say, am really happy but my mind is calculating a million things per second at the moment xD trying to make the best of this time am spending here. 

I'll try to keep this place updated now that am using my friend's fast internet *evil grin* x3

Peace!

[Poem of the week] Death's Chill Between

A very sad and shocking event happened at the beginning of last week-end.
My roommate received a call around midnight from her family saying that her father was hospitalized so we took her to the bus station at 1 a.m and she got a ticket. While we were waiting for the 2 a.m bus, with her soft cries and worries, around 1.30 a.m she received another call... the devastating call confirming the death of her father... إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون 
I've never lost someone that close (and pray Allah I never would) even though with grandparents it isn't the same, but this... happening like this in front of me was extremely shocking, even my roommate noticed and was inquiring about me. I couldn't believe it, in 1 hour her father was gone (no previous illness or anything) just like that... سبحان مغير الأحوال
Even though she handled it quite strongly, I, in her place would've lost my mind at the spot... am not strong when it comes to emotional shocks like these and I pray Allah may never test me with any... 

My roommate was extremely kind-hearted and decided to drive her all the way to KL instead of taking the bus and on the way back to UIA in the car, she kept saying how sudden and unbelievable this was... like "should I call my mom?", "my brother cried... he never cries" but she said one sentence that broke my heart into two : "I bought him chocolate... I was gonna give him chocolate"

اللهم ارحمه واغفر له وارزق أهله الصبر والسلوان

I've chosen this poem considering there's nothing else I could give her to console on her loss, hoping for whoever is reading this now, to pray for her father's soul and for her and family to remain strong.



Chide not; let me breathe a little,
  For I shall not mourn him long;
Though the life-cord was so brittle,
  The love-cord was very strong.
I would wake a little space
Till I find a sleeping-place.
You can go,—I shall not weep;
  You can go unto your rest.
My heart-ache is all too deep,
  And too sore my throbbing breast.
Can sobs be, or angry tears,
Where are neither hopes nor fears?
Though with you I am alone
  And must be so everywhere,
I will make no useless moan,—
  None shall say 'She could not bear:'
While life lasts I will be strong,—
But I shall not struggle long.
Listen, listen! Everywhere
  A low voice is calling me,
And a step is on the stair,
  And one comes ye do not see,
Listen, listen! Evermore
A dim hand knocks at the door.
Hear me; he is come again,—
  My own dearest is come back.
Bring him in from the cold rain;
  Bring wine, and let nothing lack.
Thou and I will rest together,
Love, until the sunny weather.
I will shelter thee from harm,—
  Hide thee from all heaviness.
Come to me, and keep thee warm
  By my side in quietness.
I will lull thee to thy sleep
With sweet songs:--we will not weep.
Who hath talked of weeping?—Yet
  There is something at my heart,
Gnawing, I would fain forget,
  And an aching and a smart.
--Ah! my mother, 'tis in vain,
For he is not come again.
 
Death's Chill Between by Christina Rossetti

SLEU Tutor Camp

Greetings and Salam to you all,

Here's something I forgot to blog about from few weeks ago. I attended the SLEU tutor camp upon an invitation from the office, it's mainly a three days camp with various activities attended by all tutors from both Gombak and Kuantan SLEU offices along with other invited members (students and staff) and it was a blast! Never thought we could do so much in 3 days only because it  was extremely tiring (8 a.m to 11 p.m) time management... check! :3

The camp was held in "Puteri resort" Melaka, a beautiful resort with wonderful scenery and a breath taking pool. Perfect for holidays :3 it was a blast having to meet tutors of different languages, you know how fascinated I am about languages so it was ecstasy for me to be able to blend with them and share thoughts and ideas. We had many activities (written, performed and sport events) sharing the knowledge and the wisdom and getting to know people in the same university but under different branches and specialties. Like the head of SLEU office called us, you are great achievers, students who shared their extra time in learning and giving back knowledge. You will be great leaders she said, a wonderful heart warming speech she made at the end.

I met wonderful people whom I hope to meet again in Gombak inshaa Allah. it's funny how many amazing people there are under the same roof yet you never cross paths with them in your daily life. We could be literally, passing them by everyday without even knowing that someday, we could be close friends or participating in such events and making such long lasting memories. A learning experience is the best journey one could ever have. I have been immensely inspired and I needed it. So all thanks to Allah for giving me this opportunity and for SLEU office who were beyond kind and devoted to guide us through this camp.

I just hope I can participate in the next camp inshaa Allah *greedy look* haha

Let the pictures speak!

Celebrating 201 posts

I can't believe I made it to 200 posts already, despite being super lazy. I guess this should give me more motive xD (I end up saying that in each post) maa ii, Let's celebrate! To me and this blog and whoever visits it and reads its content. Let us hope for greater achievements and greater accomplishment... together we can! Nantoka...
Not true, blogging is for yourself. If you start doing it for the people it'll never be enough so be content coz one day, years from now you will visit and read or maybe your children will read it and see what their parents looked like (thought like x3) and that will certainly count for something.

 Hurraaaay~

Inner Peace

Nothing feels better than finding that inner peace within yourself, once you start being honest with yourself and accept it for what it is, for who you are but of course in moderation always. It is then when you will be the happiest.

That's all I feel like saying today...
Peace


If only PEACE were understood,
What couldn’t be now, in the future could.
