Separuh gelisah, separuh teruja

Assalamualaikum.

Tajuk entri kali ini sekiranya di-Englishkan ialah 'Half Nervous, Half Excited'. Aku berkira-kira samada hendak menggunakan perkataan gementar atau gelisah. Aku rasa kedua-dua maksud perkataan tersebut merujuk kepada perasaan cuak, tapi gelisah ini level cuaknya lebih tinggi berbanding gelisah. Lol menyimpang dari content yang aku nak taipkan kali ini.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Semuanya bermula dengan post ini di group facebook kami. Faiz mengajak kawan-kawan MRSM Kuantan yang berdekatan dengan Shah Alam untuk bermain futsal bersama-sama. 


Perancangan awal:
Tarikh: 21/3/2015 (Sabtu malam Ahad)
Masa: 10-12 malam
Tempat: Gelanggang futsal U One Bukit Raja

Ajakan ini mendapat respon yang sangat baik daripada kami semua sehinggakan yang bersetuju untuk hadir pada malam itu 25 orang. Cukup untuk 5 team 5 sebelah.

Perancangan yang dipinda:
Masa: 10 malam - 1 pagi

It's a freaking long 3 hours. Lama gila. Tapi bila difikirkan semula, kami dah lama tak berjumpa, jadi apa salahnya kan?

Aku rasa cuak memikirkan tanggapan awal mereka terhadap aku sesudah sampai nanti. Aku di Kuantan boleh dikatakan rarely sentuh bola futsal memandangkan mereka dahulu selalu mendominasi gelanggang tersebut. Lengkap dengan dribble bagai. Itu pasai kenapa aku main bola tampar dan bola keranjang dulu. HAHA. 

Bila diingatkan semula yang Ayah selalu membawa aku bermain futsal sejak tingkatan 2 sehinggalah sekarang (9 tahun tu!), aku berasa agak yakin dengan kemampuan aku untuk bersama-sama mereka di gelanggang.

Aku bertolak ke Shah Alam dari Gombak selepas Maghrib kerana aku sangka event bermula 9 malam. I have never been so wrong. Sampai sejam awal di Shah Alam, aku gunakan masa tersebut untuk berfikiran positif. Maklumlah, mereka yang hadir kali ini kencang-kencang power main futsal. Banyaknya mewakili fakulti masing-masing.

Sekitar pukul sepuluh, aku tiba di U One. Aku lihat Hafizan sahaja yang sudah sampai, menanti di tepi tangga. Aku ingatkan dia tak cam aku, alhamdulillah, sangkaanku meleset. Itulah pentingnya aktif di Facebook menggunakan nama sebenar. HAHA.

Kemudian, seorang demi seorang datang. Janggal sungguh rasanya. Kawan-kawan yang berasal dari Terengganu dan Kelantan yang tiba dahulu. Mana pula orang KL, Selangor dan Pahang ni? -.- 

Apabila semuanya sudah hadir, aku lihat semua masih seperti dulu, badan maintain dan ada yang dah berketak-ketak. Aku rasa aku seorang je dah menggemuk T_T Faris Hadi yang selalu berjumpa ketika aku diploma di Perak pun terkejut. Badan aku ketika di degree Shah Alam lagi besar! Ada yang tanya apa sudah jadi? Sudah tentu alasan tak jaga makan yang digunakan. 

Aku mendapati kawan-kawan aku ini majoritinya mengambil kursus kejuruteraan dan belajar di UiTM Shah Alam. Aku pula seorang sahaja FSPU yang masih belajar. Aiseh.

10.20 malam, it's a kick off

Aku memilih untuk menjadi keeper sepanjang berada di gelanggang tersebut kerana beberapa faktor, 

1) aku tak reti nak participate dalam offense, 
2) stamina aku out,
3) aku nak evaluate their strengths and weaknesses dulu, dan
4) kaki kanan aku masih belum pulih sepenuhnya

Mampuih la nak kena skill bagai sepanjang game aja.

Kami gunakan format 7 minit satu perlawanan, 5 sebelah dan king stay. Terima kasih Ayah kerana pinjamkan hon dan jam. Jumaat depan Abanglong pulangkan balik. Memang teratur perlawanan tersebut.

Sepanjang perlawanan tersebut, memandangkan hanya 19 orang sahaja yang bermain (Arif sakit kaki), tiada kumpulan yang tetap ahlinya. Kumpulan yang aku sertai yang jadi King selalunya offense level dan chemistry memang tinggi. Aku mesti take note perkara ini untuk game-game yang akan datang.

Pengalaman manis aku ketika berada di dalam gelanggang selain dapat bermain bersama-sama dengan kawan-kawan lama ialah 

1) dapat selamatkan bola yang bertalu-talu datangnya dari kiri dan kanan. It costs my palms and fingers to be numbed. 


2) dapat menjaringkan gol menggunakan weak foot (kaki kiri) dari kotak D aku. It was a shot which curved into the top left area of the opponent's goalpost. It was indeed a 70-30 goal. HAHA.

Kami tamat bermain pada pukul 1.20 pagi. Barai.

Pada pendapat aku, it's a good event sebab jarang dapat gather ramai-ramai macam ni, selain dapat bersuka ria, kami dapat bina chemistry semula yang berguna untuk kekalkan ikatan persahabatan dan event akan datang terutamanya SPKG.

It was a great night dan kami sempat mengambil gambar sebelum beredar pulang.

Barely Passed

Assalamualaikum.

MY THOUGHTS (BEFORE) GETTING THE RESULT
Yesterday was a sad day. With the passing of Datuk Hasbullah Awang, a veteran sports presenter and Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, the former Mentri Besar Kelantan in the same day, Thursday felt like a little bit gloomy than before.

The next day (today) which falls on Friday 13th 2015, it was the day for UiTM students' receive their examination result. Frankly speaking, I was nervous. I had a sleepless night, waking every hour checking my email inbox.

Around 5 o'clock in the morning, I woke up again and realized that I have received the long-waited email. I tapped the phone screen and the result popped up.

MY THOUGHTS (DURING) GETTING THE RESULT
I squeezed my eyes, adjusting my sight and stared at the grades with half-awake consciousness. 

(The grades are purposely whitened)

I was shocked by the result. This semester's result was the lowest I ever had in my diploma and degree years. Barely passed 3.0 Purata Nilai Gred (PNG)! As expected, I flunked in valuation, academic project and third language subjects. Meanwhile, in a optimist point of view, I was relieved by the fact that I passed all subjects taken.

I whatsapp-ed the screenshot of the email and sent to Fathi and dozed off.

MY THOUGHTS (AFTER) GETTING THE RESULT
I was disappointed with myself for failing to do my best. I have the capabilities to excel but I wasted the gift by misbehaving and procrastinating. Deep in myself, I know that I can do it but I still let the mistakes repeated again and again from a semester to another.


[VALUATION]
It is one of the core subjects for estate management students which revolve the valuation of real estate field. I wished that I have done more practices on calculations! 

Dealing with numbers has never been my forte because it requires intense focus and lots of working needed to be jot down to arrive the final answers. Deep inside in my heart, I believe that my bad experiences in doing silly mistakes while working on mathematic questions make me afraid to embrace number-based subjects. It makes me a quitter in a way, but to improve my life, I cannot be giving up in each obstacles faced ain't I?

I believe that THIS is my problem.

I told my friend about the problem and he stated that if I am eager enough to be a registered valuers, I have to overcome this problem by hook or by crook.

[ACADEMIC PROJECT]
It is a final year project which requires us, the estate management students to do our own thesis and research about anything related to real estate. I have chosen the topic of Affordable Housing.

The fifth semester students need to complete their Chapter 1,2 and 3 and submit to their supervisors within 14 weeks. Due to my attitude, I took ONE exhausting day to finish up all the chapters. I expected that I will be failed for this subject but thankfully, my supervisor are really thoughtful and being considerate with me by passing me with the minimum grading.
[THIRD LANGUAGE]
Degree students are required to learn either Mandarin, Arabic, Japanese and French languages as their elective subject. I have chosen Mandarin due to its widely usage in Malaysian working industry.

Learning Mandarin is a eye opening experience. I realize that I can be so clueless about the words uttered by the lecturer and cannot comprehend the sentences. Due to my weak basic, the problem worsen and dragged me into absolute hardship in learning foreign language. Despite of mind blocking experience in the class, I glad that the attention capturing way of teaching of Wan Laoshi makes me not giving up with the subject.

I got a C for this subject.

I read one of the chapter of Hajime no Ippo, a boxing manga which show Ippo, a boxer who is defeated in a world title match. Different from his previous matches, Ippo accepted his defeat and not giving any excuses for his loss. His trainer, the old man became speechless and asked Ippo to start from square one again.

In this chapter, the manga addressed the idea of accepting your loss without any complaints can be an absolute loss for a fighter. Sometimes, we need to come out with excuses for our losses, be in a denial state as it reflects our confidence that we can do a better job in different circumstances.

Total acceptance can be the mark of a dying will to make a great comeback.

My fellow readers, you can understand further the meaning of my explanation by reading the manga below. It is a manga, so it shall be read from right to left.





I am not defeated yet. In the upcoming session and eventually the last semester, I will use all my might to hit 4.00 PNG. Pray for my success. Thank you for reading.
