The meanest thing you ever did is come around

Hi there. I have been all over the place travelling around and having a great time, and procrastinating on my thesis as usual. The LTLT at L.Gan was really great and we had a good time there. The main difficulty was managing 40 people, and getting them to stop talking and also talking in Dhivehi was a bit of a challenge which is such a shame since we're all Maldivians. I feel so sad that my Dhivehi is so bad, when did this even happen? I do talk in Dhivehi a lot, but I talk in English a lot more I guess. *sigh* Does this ever happen to you? I even think in English, which is a bit bizarre I guess, but it's normal to me. I once even asked a classmate if he thinks in English or Dhivehi and he said it was a weird question. O.O

Last week, and most of this week I was at Himmafushi celebrating Eid with some relatives. We went there for A's birthday party but I stayed over because I wanted to see the Eid celebrations. I was there last Eid too, and I has lots of fun. They play Eid very differently than the people at my mom's island. But mostly, we spent a lot of time watching movies. I watched The Amazing Spider-man  which was so so good, and I even watched The Spider-man 3 which was not that bad, and Jaws and some Hindi movies. Barfi was one of them which I absolutely love. Ranbir and Priyanka are so good in it, and I love the story. Ek Tha Tiger and Housefull 2 were not bad, I didn't enjoy them a lot though. 
Now that I'm back, I'm trying to concentrate on my thesis, but I keep keeping it off which is really annoying. I am also thankful to my friend M who got me a lot of stuff I had wanted for the longest time and I was so excited all day. Seriously, you are just so great and I'm glad to have known you.
I hope you guys had a great Eid. Leave me a comment telling me what you did over the Eid. :)

Monday Playlist

It's Monday again, and I have been extremely busy the last few days. So busy I couldn't even spare time for people. I am leaving to Laamu for a workshop this week and I have an assignment due on Thursday which I need to finish and submit on Wednesday since I leave that day and on top of that I have my thesis and a farewell party to get ready to. SO MUCH WORK! 
I also haven't been able to listen to much music, and so here's what I've got so far

I'll Be There For You by The Rembrandts
The FRIENDS theme song. This is my current ringtone and I love it. It is such a fun, upbeat cool song that you just cannot hate. I also love the version of this where the cast of FRIENDS invade which The Rembrandts are singing and make funny faces and have an awesome time. Gotta love Pheebs, Rach, Mon, Ross, Chandler and Joey!

Good Time by Owl City ft Carly
Another great song by Owl City. I love the video and I love how the song always makes me feel good. So whenever I hear this, no matter how bad it is, until the song ends it is such a good time.

Wide Awake by Katy Perry
Usually Katy's songs are rather fun and this one's no exception. I love how she incorporated refernces to all her other videos in this song's video. Also whenever this song comes up, I suddenly feel very at alert. ha

Mr.Saxobeat by Alexandra Stan
THIS is so so amazing and makes me want to dance whenever I hear it. Just love it.

No Name by Ryan O'Shoughnessy
Nawaf introduced this song to me just yesterday and since then I've been listening to it every now and then throughout the day. The lyrics are just so good. I love a song that is so simple and romantic and just makes you feel all good inside. You gotta hear this, and watch the video while you're at it.

When She Was Mine by Lawson
It is a sad song, but there's just something to it that makes you feel that life is just, ah. Well, I don't know. I just like it a lot.

Dil Sambhal Ja Zara from Murder 2
LOVE LOVE LOVE this song. Great song, and it is my number one song to sing in my head while I'm walking down the road. It's my personal walking anthem. It is very interesting and makes me feel like I'm the only on on the road which helps. :P All this time I thought the video would be something very sad and nice, but it turns out to be a seduction song. O.o

Have an awesome time guys. :)

Late Monday Playlist

I was going to upload this yesterday, but I got extremely busy and forgot. So here goes;

50 Ways to Say Goodbye by Train
Train has become a personal favorite with songs like Hey Soul Sister and Drive By (I mean seriously, I could just sing THIS IS NOT A DRIVE BY all day long and not get bored of it) and this song is no exception. I absolutely love how he used so many interesting (and some quite horrific) ways to die and made it into a great song. My favorite way to die in the song is danced to death at an east side night club. haha! I also love the video and that guy holding the Rack City Bitch board.

Starships by Nicki Minaj
I'm not exactly a fan of Nicki but I know a few people who are. I do like chorus of this song. In fact, I like it so much that I often yell it while having conversations with my sister much to the horror of poor little girl. I mean, how can one not yell, "starships were meant to fly, hands up and touch the sky". It's just so yell-able.

Hello by Karmin
Thanks to my good friend Arky, I found this song and I absolutely adore it. Karmin is just adorable. However  in the list of my favorite songs named Hello, this would come 3rd; the first being the Lionel Ritchie song (Why yes, I am looking for you Lionel) and the second being the Martin Solveig song (oh, you just came to say hello? HOW NICE!)

Airplanes by Bob ft Hayley
I remember when I was in HFM and when this song was da bomb. I actually got bored of it. But then, I somehow found the love back. It is also the only song that I can attempt to rap to. I also found out that I'm horrible at rapping. True Story. Not that I ever thought I'd be good at. I just wanted to give it a try. WHAT? DON'T JUDGE ME. IF YOU HAVE NEVER RAPPED IN YOUR LIFE, then good for you I guess.
Runaway by Kanye West
This is the first Kanye song that I actually like enough to play it more than once. I guess being a fan of Tay automatically makes me not like him. (the BUT IMMA episode?) I like this song because it is very very cool. It gives toasts to people like douchebags, assholes and all other random people and also asks them to runaway. That has to be the best advice Kanye has ever given.

Ulhe Jab Jab Zulfe from Naya Daur
Dad and I have a shared love for old Hindi songs and Urdu Ghazals and lately we have been watching them during nights when I don't have class. I almost forgot how much I loved these songs. The lyrics are beautiful, the music is heartwarming and the people are so elegant and the posse just makes you want to go there and nod your head to the tune.

Dil Mera Churaya Kyun from Akele Hum Akele Tum
This song is so so sad it makes me want to cry. I mean, really. Why did she had to steal his heart only to break it, that is just plain mean. Who does that?

Anyhow, have a wonderful day everyone.
