It struck me when I was looking through the posts in Facebook.
Yes its so boring in the mid sem break and I totally did not do anything related to studies.
My friends from UPM posted stuffs like:
"Omgosh one week gone? Back to UPM? NOOOO!!!"
"I don't wanna leave home!!! Why why why??!!! More holidays please!"
Or stuffs like that.
I reacted differently though, probably because the distance of my home and my education institutions till today is minimal.
High School was of course easy.
As for university, UPM is only 20km away and heck Monash is only 5 minutes away.
The only period I was long enough to be away from home was when I enrolled UPM, and I lived in residential.
Funny, which I'd loved it a lot.
All, I mean ALL of my course mates were like crazy over holidays because they can head home.
I was totally different, in which I'd rather stayed in residential and not go home.
Seriously, why leave the residential college when it's so comfy there? Apart from lack of air conditioning, and probably a maid, everything else was fine.
I do not particularly demand for special demands or whatever, I just need a place for me to be there and that is totally fine.
As for not being near to people I know or close with, I'm ok. I don't feel "lonely" or whatever term people use for homesick, because I totally lived that life out by now.
Even my best bud is in the Oz land now, loneliness doesn't kick into me.
Is it because of the distance that I do not miss home? OR it's just that I am NOT a home person?
The fortune-teller once told my parents I'm the type that leaves home and "berfoya-foya"(international readers do ask a Malaysian) outside. One which I didn't really believe in.
However, as I grow older, the "prophecy" or whatever term to classify it became more and more compatible to my personal preference.
So maybe I am the type that goes out and sleep around and all?
Oh well, as for now, I can't wait for the next 6 weeks to end, and I can once again get back to my free and easy life in UPM.
There's no family matters, at least.
