Graduation

Home, for now.

Posted in Graduation, Personal

Assalamualaikum,

If you followed me on one of my social media sites, or if you are friends with me on Facebook, you might’ve noticed that I [recently] posted about my last day in the United States.

Yep – I’m home guys. For good, probably, but at least I’m home for the time being.

I arrived in Malaysia a little over a week ago, on June 15th. It’s been quite a busy schedule for me this past week, what with looking for Eid clothes, meeting up with teachers and lecturers in INTEC & SSP, and preparing for Eid and all. Not to mention my job-hunting and all that.

Talking about jobs – no, I still have not confirmed where I will be working at. There is a job offer that I just recently received that I might take up, however, I would prefer to let you guys know about it once it’s all confirmed and stuff. So, for now, do pray for the best for me!

Oh, also, I bought a bunch of stuff from Madison – things like t-shirts, keychains, fridge magnets and all. I might do a giveaway on this blog if enough people are interested in them, what do you think?


Other than that, hmm, let’s see. Oh, yeah, it’s Eid tomorrow (Sunday), so Eid Mubarak to everyone out there. :) Hope your Ramadhan was filled with happiness and blessings, and may you enjoy the joyous day tomorrow. Talking about Eid, I had a slow #ProjekKadRaya this year, considering how I procrastinated a lot on writing and posting the Eid cards. So most people would be receiving their Eid cards after Raya, hopefully by the end of the week *fingers crossed*. That being said, I do have some extras, so if you want an Eid card and are fine with receiving your Eid card in the mail in the middle of July, well, hop on over and fill up this form for me.

Okay, I think that should be it for now. Until next time, stay awesome people! :)

p/s – Anyone here wants to meet up for drinks or something after Raya? I should be starting my job sometime mid-July, and might have time to hang out for a bit if anyone’s up for it. Let me know <3 [manusia tak sedar diri yang blog ni dah bersawang dan agaknya tak ada orang baca pun lewls]

“If it were you, what would it be?”

Posted in Graduation, Personal

Assalamualaikum,

So, this past weekend, I attended two different graduation dinners. On Saturday night, I went down to Illinois to attend UIUC MASA’s Graduation Night, and on Sunday night, it was UW-Madison MSA’s Graduation Night. Sure, it was a little hectic and tiring for me to attend both of them (considering how I had to drive back up on Monday morning after sending him back down to Illinois), but it was worth the time & energy.

My perfect date for the weekend.

My perfect date for the weekend.

No worries, this post will not be the “omg I’m so in love with my perfect date and how perfect the weekend was or how the two graduation dinners were“. Mind you, I might post about that one day, but this is not that post. This post is more to answering a question that my clingy¬†junior asked me during one of the graduation dinners, where they were showing the graduating seniors’ achievements (academic, personal, etc) during their college years.

“So, if it were you, what would your achievement(s) be?”

One Month Away.

Posted in Graduation, Personal

Assalamualaikum, hello.

I have just a little over an hour left of my super long graveyard overnight shift, and I thought I could write something up for the blog. I mean, it’s a little overdue, and I kind of have quite a lot of things to write down, even though I might not be able to write / share all of them to you [yet].

So, it’s April 12th [almost April 13th back home in Malaysia], which means that I have a month left to graduation [my commencement is on May 13th]. Now that I think of it, seeing how graduation is just around the corner, it forces me to think about what I actually want to do in life, and what I want to do after graduation.

Remember how last time, I talked about my interest in attending graduate school? Funny how I said it was going to be an ongoing blog series, but it ended up only being one blog post. I guess I owe it to people [if not to my blog, even though it’s heartless like me and wouldn’t care a bit if I don’t tell it everything] to let you know of some of the things that happened in the past couple of months since that original post.
