So, in my classmates sequel, let me tell you about the rest of my classmates. Since you already know my gang, the 15 of us who were classmates since the course started, I’ll go through with the rest of them.
Masthu – She’s this really nice person who has a great sense of humor and her voice is so calm and sophisticated. I love how she dresses as well. Very mature and classy!
Sharu – THE FUNNIEST PERSON, LIKE EVER! She reminds me of Zai, even though both of them have very different kind of personalities. She is so fun, she watches Korean drama's and she is amazing. Never a dull moment when she is around. I should have started being friendly with her even last sem. I guess I misjudged her. I have a feeling next year is going to be fun. Seriously, I LOVE this girl!
Jailam – I guess he’s funny in his own way. I really don’t know much about him.
Ayya – THIS GUY WEARS THE FUNKIES SHIRTS EVER. FLORAL and stuff. Very interesting. Last sem, M and I played few pranks on him, but apparently he didn’t like them. Serious much? I don’t know much about him either other than the fact that he probably haven’t watched “Confessions of a Shopaholic”. Not that I would assume he would have either.
Shimau – He’s funny, a bit immature but in a good way. He doesn’t take himself too seriously which is nice. He probably think I get angry at even little things. I’m letting him think that for now.
Kalym – Exceptionally responsible, wearer of dramatic tees, and bright shirts.
Muna – Has a very sophisticated style. Funny and exceptionally nice.
Shiu – Sweet, and has her moments.
Yum – Really nice, funny and probably has the best and biggest collection of shoes in the class. I’m so jealous of her shoe collection. Has impeccable style too, and she is really smart as well.
Shazu – She’s no longer in our class, but last semester she was ith us, and she’s funny.
Nisha – Really nice and she’s very pretty.
Usama – Funny and has this lovely smile.
Hashiya – Funny and totally amazing. She drives. Any girl who drives a bike is VERY cool in my book.
Fai – She’s nice. Donno much about her either.
Sobbu – Has a really amazing style. Also has a lovely voice.
I guess that’s most of the students who joined our class last semester and hopefully will graduate with us in 2013. There are a few other who were in a few classes like Shazin, who is very mysterious, Shakee and Fasee, really studious and nice and funny people, and Mode who is an all around good guy.
There are a few more who joined us this semester, but they deserve a post of their own.

Thank you for everything that you have blessed to me.
Thank you for keeping my parents healthy and my family prosper.
Thank you for giving me the strength to deal with everything, and thank you for all the things.
All the little and the big things.

This week has been a busy week. Yes people. My life has finally taken the busy turn. I hardly have any time (and if I even have them, I spend it watching too much Criminal Minds. Did I tell you how obsessed I am about Spencer Reid/Matthew Gray Gubler? HE’S THE BOMB!). Lets see.
Tuesday, we on our KFLFL project, had our very first focus group in FMC and it went better than we could imagine. Honest. Now I feel like I should be a researcher instead. =] Despite the obstacle in the form of university guards ( Don’t ask. I think they have something against me, personally. But then again, I think everyone has something against me. It makes living all that mush exciting. You should try that too.) and running out of time, but we had so much fun playing miming and stuff. Getting people to come to these events are hard, even with free food. –__- Next day was full of classes and boring things. Nothing too exciting. Then Thursday came. First we were supposed to share our fav ad with the class. Me being an ad junkie (when I used to watch Hindi series, I would watch ads and then change channels when the drama came. I am THAT drawn to those stuff) I went through most of my fav ads and decided to go with the Conan ad for AmEx, thinking that people would get it cos well, it’s simple and very interesting. But sadly, none of them seemed to understand the jokes Conan put, which was REALLY HILARIOUS. Now I am forced to believe that my classmates must be aliens. Or they didn’t get the ad because I got it in the best quality and so it was too high resolution for FMC PC’s to play and got stuck every two seconds. NOT FUN! Here’s the ad for those interested. I think it’s one of the best ads of the year, and hope it wins the Emmy Award this time!
Yesterday, like every other Maldivian, I woke up to the sad and tragic news of the death of four of our young students and the principal of Hiriya School. It was a moment of sadness for the whole country. May Allah bless the souls of these five people. The principal was brave and a true Maldivian hero who died trying to save his students. We all need people like him to be our leaders. People who not only talk the talk, but are willing to walk the walk as well. At times like these, I am proud that we Maldivians forget out differences and unite as a whole to mourn the huge loss.
In the evening, I was to attend the twins birthday, which was fun spending time with cousins. They are so hilarious and never a dull moment when they are around. Today, I am planning another KFLFL thing, and then a family photo session is in the works. For now, I am listening to very hyper Hindi songs burning my mint oil which has a lovely aroma.
How was your week people?

Ever since I started to actually listen to English songs (which is circa 2008, right before joining HFM, YES I WAS LEVING UNDER A ROCK ALL THAT TIME, a rock that played bollywood songs though.), I have been a fan of Taylor Swift. Her music speaks to me (and most of her teenage fans-__-), and sometimes I feel like the song was written about me. You know how it goes. When you hear a song that just perfectly fits your life. But of course my life’s not all about guys who should belong with me or fights at two thirty a.m.
I believe Taylor herself is a nice role model (despite her many failed relationships). I of course don’t know much about her, but I heard sometime ago that she bought an expensive house and gifted it to her parents. Now that’s the kind of daughter I want to be!
I have listened to various of her songs, but my favorite is Mean. I love it because it is a reminder to always dream big and never let other people drag you down. Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me, and all you’re ever gonna be is mean. The lyrics are so applicable to anyone with a passionate dream. I myself have been criticized several times by people even closest to me, about having big dreams and I’ve hardly let them get to me. My second favorite is A Place in this world. The first time I hear it, I was like OFCOURSE IT’S ABOUT ME. It’s about the strong girls, who of course are trying to find their place in this big scary world. I'll be strong, I’ll be wrong, oh but life goes on! When something bothers me too much, I tell myself this. It works, most of the times. My next favorite is Picture to Burn. I love how she brings all her rage together, and is calm but confident. This is a really good breakup song. Honest. There’s no time for tears, as I’m sitting here planning my revenge. There’s nothing stopping me from going out with all of your best friends. I love this line.
Some honorable mentions
Teardrops on my guitar – She better hold him tight give him all the love.
Mine – You made a rebel of careless man’s careful daughter, you are the best thing that’s ever been mine.
You Belong With Me – I'm in my room, listening to the kind of music she doesn’t like.
Today Was a Fairytale – Can you feel that magic in the air?
Change – and we’ll sing hallelujah!
Forever and Always – It rains when you’re here and it rains when you’re gone.
She is extremely nice to her fans and I so so want to try her fragrance Wonderstruck. I love how nice and shocked she seems every time she wins an award and how she always wears her signature white dresses in videos and sparkly gowns to ceremonies. I love her songs, and hope that she stays clean and nice, unlike some other stars. Yes, Lindsay and Miley I am talking about you!

I used to be an avid reader. I remember one day when I was only ten years old, having woken up at dawn to study for exam, I was reading a story when mom woke up. Several nights were spent reading books under the duvet thinking my mom didn’t know I was reading, but she knew. Moms, huh?
Lately, I’ve been pretty distant from books, mostly due to Internet, and movies along with busy schedules, but I have set a goal to read as many books within this year. So far, I was only able to read three. –__- NOT COOL!
I have always heard from lots of people (and by that I mean PINTEREST) that this was a great read, and yes it was. A classic and one of the best books I have read so far. I absolutely loved the way the story is told from the eyes of two children. There were topics noteworthy such as racism, religious beliefs, education systems and crime in those times.
Short Summary: Racism at the early 1900's seen by two young white children as their father seeks to give justice to a black man accused of a rape of a white girl. In the end, it all makes sense and the children are left to figure the cruelty and secrets of the adults in Maycomb County.
Fav Character: Scout Finch. Being a girl and growing up in such a neighborhood, despite having a good family is a hard thing for her, but she showed courage throughout the book, standing up for what she believes. She empathies with Boo as well as gets well with the other characters. The way she describes her surroundings and the people within it is fascinating as well as memorable.
I have read this books once before, right when it came and I rad it again, to get ready to watch the last movie and cherish the end of an era filled with magic, joy and bravery. JK Rowling is one of the best authors of the modern times as her writing style has changed over the years as the children grew up, and her magical new world lets the readers go through the books and live in it. Yes, we all grew with the trio, feeling what they felt. The last part shows the most of emotions in a way that even the most stubborn person can identify with. Her writing mesmerizes people. Unlike most other book series, the answers to all the questions are given. Everything is crystal clear.
Short Summary: At last Harry, Hermione and Ron embark on a trip to find the remaining horcruxes where they find out about the hallows, learn about the past and battle in order to defeat the evil.
Fav Character: This is a difficult question. I have so many favorite characters, but the most notable one is Hermione Granger. I have always seen her as a role model to girls young and old. In the very first book, she is seen as a proud person but someone who needs friends, and after the troll incident, Harry and Ron become friends with her. Once a friend, she is loyal to them throughout the series, she is not only book smart, but brave and stands up for her friends and loved ones. Coming from a muggle family, she endures lots of difficulties from the pure-bloods and deatheaters, but she is always shown as a courageous girl who fights for the good.
