The "I am Not dead" Post

yes, people I am alive.
I came back from mom's place like almost a week ago, and I have been a lazy ass watching too much of 30rock and Chuck and also grieving about the too much shopping I did last night.
I am however doing pretty good, and today, in less than two hours, I am leaving to go to dad's place, home. You see having two homes is kinda weird, and having three is a pain in the butt.
Somehow I managed to keep it going, but now going back to that place after 6 years, I don't know what to feel.
I am however only going to attend a relative's wedding and will be back tonight, but that's not the point.
It's the place I spent so many of my pre teen years, and the place is like the haunted past.
I sincerely hope that this time, history WILL NOT repeat itself.
On the bright side, free trip. =P
So, how is your holidays so far?

What is friendzone?
It’s the one place that sounds amazing, but believe me, it’s one of the worst places to be. It’s when a girl/guy starts to see you ONLY as a friend, and once you’re in there, there’s no getting out. No matter what you do.say he/she will never be able to see you anything more than a friend.
But ofcourse, there are a few exceptions.
I am a very choosy person, and I put A lot of people in my friendzone, and it has led to so much trouble and regrets. One incident was what made me realize how powerful friendzone was.The worst thing is when people you really like puts you in their friendzone. The next worse thing would be when both people like each other but never say, and keep dating the wrong people. Been there, done that, and it sucks!
Why do people tend to put people in friendzone? Is it the stereotyping or the judgmental nature of us human beings?

Eid Mubarak

Well, it’s my third day at HOME and so much happened already. It’s so fun, and yet tiring. I can hardly write this cos I’ve fallen enough times and have like a gazillion bruises. ha!
Anyhow, here’s wishing all my readers a very happy and prosperous eid. Lets remember those times when we used to give real cards to each other and have 5 different frocks for the 5 eid holidays. Those were the days, man!
Being here makes me happy, cause everyone knows me, and I can be me. I don’t have to pretend anything and I have fun. Also cos I can have this horrible tan and still people would talk to me. That’s the beauty of coming from a small town.
So, what’s your small town story?

The Crisis

I have been so lazy lately, and now I am having trouble making my mind. So, here’s the details.
I haven’t been able to go to mom’s place for eid (which is HOME. Dad’s Island is home. I know, belonging to two places is complicated, and much boring-er than you think.) since I moved to Male’, which was 6 years ago. It was due to different reasons on different years, and now FINALLY, I am free to go. That too alone. (Not entirely, since I am going with an aunt and twins, but whatever!)
I want to go to mom’s place because they '”celebrate eid” there the traditional way, unlike dad’s. But the problem is my best friend is getting married tomorrow and I am also going to mom’s island tomorrow.
I wish she hadn’t proponed the wedding, cos I so want to make it. I know how wedding days are a girl’s dream day and she would want everything to be perfect. I’m a girl, so basically I know that stuff. Some of us have this dream wedding, and I don’t want to not be a part of her big day. Ah, I feel sad.
Am I being selfish? I hope not.
On a related note, people keep texting me that they are “home” and it makes me want to go HOME more. aah!!
Btw, What are your plans for eid? Thos of you who have classes/exams/jobs or can’t make it due to some other reason, don’t be sad. I’ve kinda been there, done that, so all I can say is have fun!

Finally, exams are over, and I am able to breathe.
I am not that happy with the exams. Actually, I’m sad that I may have been overconfident and messed up a few ones. *sigh*
Saturday, after the marketing exam we headed to a photoshoot with classmates. It was so much fun, even though three of them didn’t show up. Then yesterday we went to villigili and again another three didn’t show up, but we had so much fun. I finally realized that there are so many things I am so bad at. OK, I did realize that ages ago, but I’ve been telling myself that sometimes I don’t need to be good at everything, but yesterway was a reality check. A wake up call. I still don’t feel that I need to be good at volley, football or moodah erun, but hey, I need to be spontaneous.
I like to think myself as a spontaneous person because in a group, I usually am the one always coming up with new ideas of stuff to do. Maybe that has something do to with my born-leader thing. LOL.
Anyhow, I plan to use this holiday as my retreat to adulthood. Yes, I am gonna learn to do things that I haven;t tried learning, and no, I’m NOT going to try to be mature and stuff because that is boring. I will be an adult no matter how much I don’t want to be one. The only thing I can do is to be ready for it.
Everyone, happy holidays!!!

The Nerdvana

image credits
I am a nerd. I love studying, and I just don’t do it for good grades. I sincerely like knowing stuff. I read a lot, I am a bookworm. I watch documentaries.
People sometimes find it hard to believe that someone can actually love studying. People only care about passing, and well, I don’t care about a pass (insha allah, I’ve been blessed with a good mind), but my parents do. For them, a pass is equivalent to the highest marks possible, which in my college is an HD. So, I do exams aiming for that, not just because my parents want me to, but because I want it. I want to go to a prestigious college and get a master’s or maybe a PhD. College life is a once in life time experience and I want mine to be extraordinary. 
Some people however find it very bizarre, and even associate me with foni and stuff, because I hardly study and yet, I get good marks. That I always finish my works first and I answer questions in class (mostly when NO ONE ELSE answers). Anyhow, My point here is that I think people tend to judge me real quick. I actually fit into so many stereotypes, people get confused. I don’t blame them. I mean I know MOST people my age, in my college, or teens in general HATE studying, but what is wrong if I like it?
I actually like SMART people. I like people who are interesting. I like people who read. I also think guys who read are sexy. But there’s a limit to it. There are other people too, so give them a chance to be smart too.

November Nights


Finally, it’s the month. After three years, I will be going back to my mom’s island, on Eid, and I can’t wait. Only I have like three exams to ace before that, ha! So, last month was pretty boring and stuff, but hopefully this new month will be fun!!! I hope to;

1. Update bloggy regularly

After the challenge, I’ve grown closer to the blog, and it has been like my 5th best friend! (after real bff’s, fashion, books and Techno friends (Blitz, and Trinka, which is my phone. Yes, I’m one of those annoying people who name almost ALL their stuff. On my defense, I don’t name my panties!). So, be ready for some mega awesome posts. =D

2. Be more friendly

Recently I’ve come to know that even though I think I’m very friendly, I don’t really talk much to people whom I don’t know, or know very less of. This makes me a hypocrite according to some very good sources. ha. So, I need to live up to my name, and be friendly!

3. Do more chores at home

I don’t know if it’s the lack of time, or plain laziness that keeps my chores piled up into the third biggest mountain of intangible stuff. I need to climb the mountain and be an ant. (No pun intended!)

4. Be Organized

Clearly, having OCD means one thing. I love order, and routine. So, this is gonna be easier done than said.

5. Read Encarta

Internet comes second as my favorite source of info. The first on the grand list in behold, THE ENCARTA. I know, I’m so 1987 that way, but I love Encarta. Everything about it from the pile of info, the graphics and even that funny Knowledge game where you are trapped in the castle of unknown depth!

6. Learn Atlas

Geography is one subject I fail at. And when I say fail, I mean “I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE NORTH IS” fail, which is pretty embarrassing when you are me (aren’t you glad you’re not me?). So, I’ve decided to bring myself to study the geographical locations, and the countries in this small world. (NOT very small when you looks at the ATLAS!)

Let’s hope I can squeeze in A LOT of fun while attempting all this.

BTW, exam in less than two hours, and I have three more chapters to learn. No wonder people call me the Queen of procrastination. (Actually I made that up.No one calls me that! ha!).
