If only I had some more time...

The senior year has begun *runs around throwing tantrums*. Shouldn't that be a pleasent thought? I think not, and you will agree with me is you have a glimpse at my schedule..

AP English
Ap Chemistry
Analytic Geometry
AP statistics
AP European history

The amount of homework I get in those AP classes will drive even the most sane person up the wall. As for me, I was never sane anyway.

Clubs I have decided to join in my senior year: Young Democrats, Model U.N (hoping to be the treasurer), Teen Volunteers, Mu Alpha Theta (probably running for V.Pres), National Honor Society, Current Events Club (I happen to be the co-founder), Medical Exploration (elected secretary last meeting yippeee).

And ofcourse, newspaper is a category of it's own. They promoted me to be the editor this year. *runs around in ellipses* What am I to do? A goofball like me... leading and taking responsibility of the goofball crew and their dozens of articles as well as writing mine? *throws a fit*

And yes, Tennis. How short and pleaseant does this phrase sound "I'm in tennis," what you don't know is that behind this little phrase is HOURS of practice, dedication and TIME (something I am running short of these days).

How am I going to survive? Filling out those fricking scholarships takes about 3-4 hours each. And how many should I apply for mom? "Several, honey." What is that supposed to mean mom? "Oh, atleast 20 to 30.. comon I know my baby can do it." I am still undecided about my colleges, for all I know I could be going to Oklahoma University or Vanderbilt Uni or Rice Uni or Baylor or UConn or John Hopkins or even Stanford. Those stupid college application takes years to fill.

So I might'nt even be regular on my blog anymore. (I don't remember being regular anyway). I'll post one of my editorials, pictures, reviews once in a while.

So keep visiting you non-commenting blog-lurkers.

Lets Drive Dude!

"Now when you are on a t-intersection and even if you have the right-of-way you better stop if another car is speeding and is not slowing down. At the end of the day you'll end up saving your life. And also when you are at a stoplight.. blah blah bleh de blah blah.. la de da blah blah.. and some more blahs... Now I want you to take this (signing at a piece of paper while my heart played drumroll) and take it to your nearest tag agency, and get your driving liscence."
- Driving Examiner

This last sentence was the most beautiful thing I've heard in a long time. The one sentence my ears ached to hear. The one senctence that could only be spoken to you once in your life. I couldn't believe my ears. Me, a straight A student, euphoric over a mere driving exam? Nobody has ANY idea how it feels to finally get your liscence after flunking the exam twice. My dad wouldn't believe me when I walked back to the examiners office to tell him I passed after passing a crowd full of nosy people whose eyes were glued to me and who made sure that they found out whatever happened to the nervous little wreck. When dad finally came back to his senses, he made sure the examiner was properly "thanked". It was embarrasing really. But finally I won't be a leech to my friends anymore, you know the leechy friend who ALWAYS needs a ride? My heart fills with pleasure when I think how I could finally call the Ford Focus that has been sitting around in my garage, Mine. I want to etch the words "Mine" all over it. "I never pray for anybody, but I'd pray for you to pass that damn exam of yours. You BETTER pass, if you fail this time you should never be allowed to drive again," said Racheal the night before my test, time to show up on her door and surprise her. Also, In honor of me getting the liscence I get to ditch the rest of the school day and enjoy some Braum's german choc. tub of icecream.

Ah, life is beautiful.

Where did summer go?

Counting the meager days left before school starts and asking myself one question; Where did my summer go? I can't believe it can be over so fast. It was just yesterday when I we had our Junior Party and made all these resolutions for the summer. Whatever happened to sticking-to-the-resolution pledge? Whatever happened to taking the chem course? And volunteering for more than 50 hours at the Teen Hero program? Or getting better at the guitar? Or re-memorizing all the surahs I forgot? Reading more than 5 classic novel? Doing college searches and applying for scholarships? Learning how to cook that chinese dinner you'd been promising mom since mother's day? Heck, the list can go on forever. Here's a summary of my summer: half summer spent on vacation, the other half in moving to our new house. I wasn't able to get in touch with my friends and hang out till last week. Moving is so ahhh Gruesome! It took me days to get my new room "habitable." Had to help mom out with the house's interior deco. Was running actually.. err.. driving back and forth from Home Depot, to Micheals to Walmart for what might appear to be the most inconsequential little things. I could tell you exactly where you'd get the best floral deco. for your house, where to buy the best beddings, the best shop in town for furniture, the rugs, the bathroom accessories, framed art and oh yes, little knick knacks to dress up any room.

After 25 days of unpaid labor, I can finally call my house a home. I'm just in love with my room. What attracted me to my room was the massive window with an skinny arch. It keeps my room bright and sunny despite my heavy dark mahogny furniture that my parents gave me as a birthday present. I couldn't find the "right" bookshelf to go with my furniture, so I stained the old one an antique mahogny to somewhat match it. In my parent's view I have ruined my bookshelf but I think all the uneven stain lines just gives it more character. I have all these fun, crazy ideas for my room that are storming around in my head. I hope execute them all before school starts. I'd post my pictures soon.

About moi

I am loud and obnoxious around those who know me. My friends call me "dangerously" positive as I am usually not able to see the "negative" side of things. Ever. I like to laugh and live life to the fullest and don't understand people who can't. I have lived all over the world. My Pakistani background, my American accent, my Irish hospitality and my Iranian appetite all blend pretty well to shape who I am. I cant help but notice that how similar I am to everybody else, yet how absolutely SuiGeneris.
