Throwback Thursday | Architecture Schools

In case you're wondering, I didn't go to Cornell but I did go to architecture school about 7 years ago and dropped out when I was in 2nd year of 5-year program as I didn't perform well in design subjects. More specifically, studio subjects; I can take other subjects like building construction, materials, etc but my design skill just getting worst from second semester onwards. Of course, now I know it's because I didn't work hard enough to stay in school although at that time I was just blaming others for my own mistakes. I wish I can blame myself being immature too but nope, it was all me.


Now that I'm working in electrical engineering company as part of administrative staffs, I get to see the paperworks; plans of building constructions and I'm not going to lie. I do miss architecture schools. I miss drawing lines with different weights. I miss the morning coffee first thing in the studio. I miss my drawing tools. Sigh. 


I don't know. I've been having these thoughts since I saw architectural magazine laying around the office few days ago. I need to do something about this or maybe I don't? It's been years but I wonder why I'm still having these thoughts. 


Or maybe it's because I've gone too long without going somewhere.

Wordless Wednesday | The Path I Want to Take

I'm Still a Starbucks Card Collector. Ish.




With people around the world celebrating Halloween, we don't. At least us Muslims here in Malaysia. Oktoberfest? Even more. Why? Because there are other festivals we can actually celebrate together among friends and family without having superstitions, alcohol drinks, etc. Most of the time, I don't really need an occasion to go and have fun. Watched 3 movies in a row at the cinema to kill time while waiting for them was fun. 


Oh, about the Starbucks card above? Yes, I do collect them since 2011 but I think this is the year I've collected them less than previous years as I haven't been to the mall as much as I want to; I missed the Mooncake festivals at Starbucks for God's sake! I never missed them before but I've been busy at the hospital and even today I've just grabbed my favourite beverage, Matcha Soy Frappucino to go as I need to be at the ward by 8 p.m. 


I've been wanting to take photos of the cards that I've collected for quite some. Maybe I will. When all of this is over.

The Rain in My Heart




As I was told, it seems that this is going to be my view for another 2 weeks. Great. 

It's not that I'm complaining but as I've always known, 4 weeks should be enough for any two people to break down their walls and start to get to each other's nerve. 

That's what's happening to me and I'm being driven out of my patience honestly. 

All I get is thanks from the person I need the most right now and not even a single explanation nor solution for me to get out of this whole situation. 



Dear God, are you sure this test is meant for me?
