High School Musical Anniversary

High School Musical. A must watch Disney movie from our childhood. But has it really been that long? YES, apparently it has.

The 20th of Jan 2016 was High School Musical’s TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY. Like, whaaaat. I can’t believe it’s been that long! #HSM10

I’ve literally grown up singing these songs and dreaming of high school being nearly half as cool as these movies- which, not to brag, but I think I managed quite easily xD

So as I sit here typing this and simultaneously put off scanning my calc III homework and listening to the songs from the movies, I’m reminicing all the wonderful moments High School Music has just had HAPPEN.

Be it mocking the movies once upon a time (only to embrace the pure brilliance that this franchise is and appreciate it as I should), making wonderful references, or being thrilled that my high school mascot was originally a Snow Leapard, which was to me, pretty damn close to a Wild Cat- how close? CLOSE ENOUGH. Oi, I DID have the same school colors as East High, so there is that~!

Anyyyways, the cast attempted to have a reunion, but since Zac Efron’s not there, it doesn’t count. But it still sorta happened- and he did send in a video, so there’s that. But I want a REAL reunion- and sooooon~!

I actually only found out about the reunion by stumbling across it on youtube, but this is the one I watched:

And because that wasn’t enough, I ended up also watching just this today which I think is a pretty cool compilation of some fun facts and did you knows from the movies :3

OH MY GOSH ❤ I wanna rewatch it again soooooon ❤ ❤ Even though I just marathonned the movies like a little over two months ago- oh well. I know what I’m doing this weekend 😀

Basically, to quote the last movie,
“I just hope the rest of my life
will feel as good as my
High School Musical.
Who says we have to let it go?
It’s the best part we’ve ever known
Step into the future
But hold on to High School Musical
Let’s celebrate where we come from
The friends who’ve been there all along, just like…
High School, High School Musical~!” ❤

The Rung Barung Jhung!

Which means “The Color Filled Fight!”

Sooo we were initially invited to Mnaz’s farmhouse to have a water fight. But then the seniors (Alya, Mnaz, and Amal) found that they still had some rung (“color”; this dye type stuff that comes in loads of colors. It’s typically a powder, but we had the liquid type that we mixed into water to have a water fight with except it stains your clothes and is just oh so much more fun!), soo we evidently changed our water fight into a rung fight!

Now, Mnaz’s place was gorgeous! It was far away from the city, but it was a five acre house, with brilliant and well-kept gardens/lawns. There was greenery everywhere ❤ It was breathtaking. The house itself was airy and briiight. Not color-wise, but light-wise. There were floor to ceiling windows in nearly every room. The house was only one story, which is very different from the typical piled up houses here, yet it was spread out. It was really refreshing to see~

Ayesha and I got there a bit later (five hours) later than the seniors that had been there since the morning. We got there and what a site to behold! They were all decked out in their old clothes that could get permanently stained. Amal in our school bottoms, and an Orion sports day T-shirt, as was Nahal, but with random polka dotted PJ bottoms. (I was going to wear mine, but I couldn’t cuz I helped lead my house to victory this year~ xD ) Alya was wearing last years icky Battle of the Sexes shirt, the dudes’ light pink one for some reason, also with random PJ bottoms. Mnaz was in a dark T-shirt, and also darkish PJ bottoms. Ayesha and I got changed and then the fight finally began, along with the fuuun! (Ayesh wore an old kurta and pajama that she’d already used at another rung fight. I borrowed Mnaz’s PJs since I didn’t have any clothes my mom was cool with me ruining. Pluuus she wasn’t cool with a “water” fight anyhoo.)

We filled one bucked with red dyed water, and the other with this teal-ish green. We divided into two teams- The Khan Family (Aya- Sharoh Khan/King Khan(Daddy), Nahal- Amir Khan/Ultimate Khan/Preteey(Daddy/sexually confused Mommy), and I-Khan the Third (child)- versus Amal, Ayesha, and Mnaz. The Khan Gang was Red, and Team B (They had no name. Pfft.) were green.

Let the games begin~!

We were running around, then just got lazy and stood near each other, tossing colored water at each other. We were trying to dye our clothes of course, but Alya’s shirt came out fab, as did my PJ bottoms. Mnaz’s shirt was too dark to show any of the colors, and our Orion shirts were made of a material that the color just slid right off (LOL, nice going there with the “quality” shirts, HS!)! We even mixed the two colors that gave us a decent shade of purple, for some reason. (Ever heard of a color wheet? This is some strange shit! Red + Green does NOT give you purple…It’s red + blue, and even then, it’s better if it’s pink + blue…)

Alya got a face full of green, and her face caught a tinge of green afterwards. The water droplets caught in her eyebrows made them look green too… And with her flop of longer hair tied up in such a short pony that it stood straight up spikely, she looked like the splitting image of the Grinch.

Muahahahaha.

Once we ran our of enough to through at each other in our mini bucket mug things, we mixed the two colors together, and tossed most of it at Amal, and theen tossed the remainder up into the air, to rain over us. Needless to say, it didn’t go nearly as swagtastically as we had planned, and it was pretty anticlimactic. Anyhoo, we got a bit crazier once we were done with our fight actually…

We couldn’t go inside dripping dye, so we stood out in the windy weather to dry up a bit first. We also had to take turns to shower, since we just had one bathroom to use and one room to change in. I think it was Alya, but she had the ridiculous idea that to save time or whatever, we should shampoo our hair in the garden. So we were like, yeah, why not. Naturally.

Now, we have Mnaz’s sister fetch us the shampoo, and we we use the hose to douse our hair, then start lathering. We also then use the soap suds to shape our hair into mohawks. Even Amal, Nahal, and I whom all have long hair. Still, Ayesha’s lookd the coolest, and Alya ironically looked just like an emo, as her hair flopped to one side, covering half her face, and refused to stay up, although her hair is the only one that was short enough to shape into a mohawk.

We obviously needed a picture. (Also, Nahal went a bit crazy with the foam and added details to Alya/her Hubby.) Once more, we summon Mnaz’s sister to take pictures of us posing like retards, soaked from head to foot, with dyed mix and matched PJ outfits.

It was hilarious. Then, Ayesha was the first to nab the bathroom, so the rest of us played some more with our shampoo hair. The one with the long hair did the “I whip my hair back and forth” times three thing (Amal was the only one that couldn’t do it, even though my hair’s shorter than hers by just a few inches). Alya shoved her hair away from her face, kind of like how you would with a headband, and honestly, that was when she transformed to Draco Malfoy. She had lightish hair (not nearly as bleached blonde as his, but still!) and her pale skin really helped her pull it off (unwillingly). The wind had even dried up all the shampoo, so you couldn’t see any of the lather, but it made her hair look like it was gelled back. Her hair was slicked back JUST like this:

Nooow because Alya looked like the shampoo had dried her hair into a helmet, we decided to rinse our hair in the garden. Using the hose. Of course. It was fun, the water was cold, it was with friends and it was ridiculous. Perfect ❤

Now, we were about to die of pneumonia as it was reaaally chilly, we were drenched, and had hair that was freshly wet with ice cold water. And Ayesha had possibly died of this deadly disease in the shower, judging by how long it was taking her…

Now, we all gather by this tree and start singing songs- first from High School Musical, then Pokemon songs, THEEN Alya adn I burst into the Hajemaru song (Theme song for Zero no Tsukaima) and the HxH song Departure (of course)- until Amal and Nahal nabbed the swings and started playing on those. Now, we’re all having a greaaat time, and then we realize that Ayesha’s done and dressed. Who’s next?

We were all grudging to leave, but I decided to take one for the team, and went. I did the stupid thing where I changed in the bathroom (cuz I didn’t bother trying to closet he windows) and my skinny jeans got pretty soaked. And damn it was incredibly hard to get the green dye off my back, and just as hard to get those jeans on in such a wet bathroom.

Now, we’re all taking turns going to take showers, and this is when Mnaz gets a random call from Zaid that he’s showing up with Tammy. “kaaay”. It’s totally cool with Mnaz’s parents since they know these guys, so they just showed up out of the blue. Then Zaid even summons forth Faizy (the best friend person of Kamil, Humzah Haroon, and Fahad).

We then had an awkward moment where Zaid went into the room Amal was supposed to change in after her shower. He closed the door. Now, we are all aware of Amal x Zaid, sooo we weren’t expecting those two to be discussing chess tactics. Err, yeah. Alya went in at some point (with her eyes closed xD ) to get her purse only to discover that Zaid wasn’t in there! He couldn’t have crawled out the windows since they were still closed, and even then, we stubbornly searched the house a bit in case he poofed or something. We reached the only conclusion. Zaid was in the shower with Amal.

Cue utter awkwardness. Faizy and Tammy wanted to knock on the door impersonating Mnaz’s mom- “why not her dad since you guys both have deep voices?” “Nah, that’s boring. And no fun.” More awkwardness.

In the end, the rest of us shove off into the garden and start a game of charades, but it starts to drizzle, and no one was too interested in the games, so we came inside again. Those two lovebirds still hadn’t come out. Sooo we climb on up to the roof, and jump right above the bathroom they were in, just to let them know that we exist and know that they’re in there together.

Now, we’re back inside, just chilling in the lounge, and these two just stroll on out, acting and looking like nothing strange or intense had happened whatsoever. The rest of us also followed their example.

We then moved on to having fooood! It was Ah-maaaa-zing. Mnaz had stayed up all night making us a shiz load of red velvet cupcakes that were great for home made (with the icing too!). Her mom made a pizza, as well as this really different pasta with red sauce and minced meat/keema that went with this dhai/yoghurt type topic thingie. I tried it all together like you were supposed to eat it, and it was great!

And now, for Ze Tale of the Wasp & Coke-

(A wasp entered the room, and Tammy and Alya freaked out the most xD The only ones not freaked were Zaid and me. Faizy was a bit freaked initially, but he then got distracted.)

It was reaaally funny. It landed on the coke bottle cap-right in front of Alya. Just about everyone ran for it, but I stayed sitting as did Zaid and Faizy. (Mnaz was already standing, serving food like a good hostess, and she didn’t move. She didn’t seem freaked out at all either, now that I think about it.)

Faizy asks me to pass him the Coke. I asked him if he was sure about that. “..Yeah, course I am.” “Okaay.” *I pick up the bottle, with the wasp still on it, mind you!, and proceed to pass it over slowly* “Thanks” *GRABS THE DAMNED BOTTLE FROM THE CAP WHERE THE WASP WAS STILL SITTING* He then yelps, drops the bottle, the wasp flies away, there are gasps, and he shakes his hand.
“The wasp was on that?” “YEAH, why do you think I asked if you were sure you wanted me to pass it?” “Didn’t you see the wasp (Zaid)?” “No, I wasn’t looking.” He was preoccupied with something on his phone instead.

Niiiice.

It was interesting. I died of laughter.

Then we went outside, onto the porch and played card games! Like the Anime Game!

We all picked a legit anime noise. Played a round. Picked other animal noises- weird ones like ‘meep meep’ (Zaid/Roadrunner), ‘arf’ (Ayesha/seal), ‘Ding’ (Alya, Fox, evidently.), ‘blub’ (fishie/Faizy), ‘gwap’ (Tammy/Hagrid’s half brother giant?), etc. And theeen, we played on difficulty mode and chose each others names! It was intense. I was one of the people to win that round >w<

On my way home, I saw in the car that it had stuck 10:52 pm. That is the latest I have been out ever, since school party functions don’t count. (As they usually start late, they end late too, and usually span to ten o’clock easy. The A-level functions usually make it to eleven, but then the teachers shut them down, and everyone finds their way to the after parties. (I’ve been invited to all of them, weirdly enough, but I just never felt the urge to go, as the crowd isn’t my cup of tea.)) I just felt really satisfied that I had been out that late, hanging out with friends, and it was such a blast too!

All in all, it was hilarious, and utterly fabulous. It was memorable ❤

It was great, and I hope we do something that fun again!

Nooow, I have loads of other stuff to type out, and gosh, this is nearly 2,100 words long :O

Ehehehe, oops ^_^;

Quotes and Stuff from Yu-Gi-Oh! the Abridged Series

One of the most hilarious things ever. And here are a few pictures, jokes, and quotes from the series.

*Miiiind Cruuush*

This one picture summarizes these characters so well.

Bandit Keith’s Catch Phrase that make total sense.

I love the scene where Bandit Keith is telling his three henchmen to get lost and get off Duel Kingdom Island. He does so by saying to get out of America. And when they respond with the logical ‘this isn’t America’, he replies with “All countries belong to America!”. “…So how are we supposed to leave then?” “I don’t know!”

Joey’s trying reaaally hard to make it his thing.

Main character- he can get away with anything. When he cheats, he doesn’t.

Recall Bakura’s sad, sad past.

One does not simply forget the trauma of their father pouring boiling tea over one’s mother and asking “Why so British?!!” repeatedly.

Episode One- It lacked a lotta logic.

I gotta say…that’s a creepy smile, Kaiba O.o

Pew pew.

Suuuure.

And yet Bakura and Marak are constantly shipped together both in fan fictions and in this series. They are both characters portrayed to be gay-

As you can clearly see, Bakura isn’t very fond with admitting to it. He likes his British excuse.

I’m sure this is what it’s going to be like when I finally go back to watching the actual Yu-Gi-Oh! soon enough.

My sentiments exactly. And my face exactly too. Never would I have thought I’d have the same expression as the all handsome Duke Devlin =| =/ =P

Aaaand now I’m off to watch some more of the series :3

Go watch it 😀 Well, before I watched it on that other site I mentioned before, but it didn’t have any episodes after 35. I couldn’t find any, at least. So I started watching it on dailymotion.com. They’re available there, albeit with French Subs for some reason =P

But there nonetheless and funnyyy~

So now I poof to go watch it =)

Laterrr~

Ze Simplest Apple Cider Recipe

Today it was rainy, windy, and then for a few hours, suuuuper sunny, then night fell, and it became wonderfully windy and cold again.

images (4)

 

^[Now this is just beautiful ❤ This is the kind of color my cider is =) ]

Now, I’m from Chicago, the windiest city of all, and I MISS the powerful winds that sway skyscrapers, and fwoosh all your hair off your back and shoulders into the air (or if your lucky, or your hairs just that short, into the skyyy).

images (5)

 

^[ Even a color like this has popped up if I use a bit too much cinnamon- how Daddy Dearest likes it =3 ]

Today it was that windy for just a brief moment, but I felt completely satisfied by it. And so I thought of home back there. The orange, bronze, and gold leaves I associate with such Autumny winds, and with that orange scheme came pumpkins, pumpkin pie, halloween, and then, apples.

cider

 

^[ Ok, so mine isn’t anywhere near as light as this one, but I think this is the kind of color you’d get if you dilute it a lot with water and if you don’t add too much cinnamon.]

So I thought, hey, this is the perrrrfect weather for some apple cider! But I’d never made it before, and only had this fake copy thing here, so I wasn’t entirely sure how it was supposed to taste. But, I just through together what I thought would taste good together, and whatever felt Autumn and fell into that color scheme.

[note- this is NOT what you should be doing, especially if you are a chemist. Just google a simple recipe- it ain’t that hard. I’m just weird, and I came out with a great cup of yummy warm goodness, so just let it sliiide ^_^ ]

Ingredients-
1 cup/mugful of Apple juice (I used Nestle’s because I love it’s crisp taste, and color.)
1 teaspoon of Honey (I used this brilliant German brand I’m obsessed with at the moment, flavored Forest Honey, that had a gorgeous hue of gold to it.)
A dash of Cinnamon/1 Cinnamon stick

Serving- One cup, or for one person.

Now, this recipe is veryyy flexible. Just add more cinnamon if you like a stronger bite to your drink, or if you don’t want it too sweet. If you like it suuuper sweet, then add more honey, or use a sweet juice like I am. (My mom hates it sweet, so for her, I add about 1 parts water, and 2 parts apple juice instead to dilute it.)

Directions-
I Turn on your stove, and pour in apple juice into a pot. Let it heat on a low-ish medium flame.

II Get a teaspoon of honey, and try mixing it in to the apple juice. I say try because it takes a bit of determination and stirring to get it to slide off the spoon entirely and dissolve into the juice.

III Add your cinnamon. I usually sprinkle in just a bit, but enough to cover the entire surface of the juice lightly before I stir it in. If you don’t have powdered/another verb that begins with a g- grinded? ground? Yup, it’s ground.- cinnamon, just add your stick of cinnamon to the cup/mug instead.

IV Now just pour out your deliciously Fall drink into an apt mug, and enjoy!

Optional- Drink while reading a good book. What’s the point in making a warm drink to enjoy, if you aren’t enjoying it in cold weather, and with a book?

Cooking for the Cursed/Kitchen-Challenged. And of course, it’s Ali Approved =3

Taste the Autumn!

-Ali
Don’t blow up that microwave again!

ps.
What can I say, Marv the Microwave doesn’t like me =(
And I haven’t blown him up in at least a year and a half now, so yeah, I’m getting better at my experiments now ^_^

 

 

MovieReview- Rise of the Guardians (2012)

So…I saw this random post on 9gag about how Jack Frost from the Rise of the Guardian’s was a lot like Elsa from Frozen, and I REALLLY wanted to watch the  movie then.

I had wanted to watch this movie since it was first up in the theater, but I remember that my parents were fed up with the cinema being so far away from our house that they weren’t willing for me to go with my friends, and were too tired/lazy to take me themselves. And I kind of forgot about it til I saw that post. And decided to watch it after all.

'

It was an adorable little film all about hope, belief, fun, and fear. It was brilliant. I absolutely ADORED Jack Frost himself, so much that I am willing to assign him a date.

Oh? What do I mean by that? Every Guardian (but the Tooth Fairy, but she’s a hummingbird, so meh.) (..and the sandman…)(OK, so HALF the Guardians) have dates or holidays assigned to them. Easter. Christmas. SOMETHING of the sort.

And even if the other two don’t have set times or seasons, who cares? Sandy’s time was night time when the kids slept and dreamed. Tooth Fairy’s thing was teeth gathering so…whatever to that.

[Although I TRULY appreciated that the teeth had some sort of deeper meaning to them. Memories! That was utterly brilliant. I found it perfectly fitting for the teeth to hold memories from our childhood- and the best and most important ones at that. This was something I really could sink my  teeth into- Oh wow. That really was an unintended pun. If it weren’t, I would have really taken credit for it.]

And so, Jack Frost, the dude with the fun and snow, I’m giving you a date. Your season is obviously winter. So now, your date should be even more obvious. It’s pretty important. It’s the Winter Solstice. The 21st of December. The shortest day, but the longest night to think up pranks, tricks, and create a blizzard. (I’m not a hundred percent sure that’s factually correct about the time though..) Perfect.

I like having my own personal Guardian to my own little holiday =3 It’s name is the only thing I don’t own. And the Guardian too, course. But then again…Frosty is pretty great too..If only I were believed in >.> <.<

Aaah, it’s late, and I have a Rehearsal on the morrow…Er, but I haven’t even typed out the actual review of the movie…um, I’ll try finishing this up quickly.

But there really are a bunch of similarities between Elsa and Jack that it’s startling. Or, predictable.

Just like this movie- Ooooh. But then again, it’s a kids movie, so a happy and perfect ending is suspected and expected from the very beginning. But it’s still worth watching.

I like it’s animation better than Frozen’s though. But I found Frozen’s utterly adorable! And Frost is a much deeper character. I’m not just saying that cuz his hair reminds me of Killua’s or that he’s cute. Or that he’s mischievous. Seriously, Elsa was pretty shallow- there wasn’t any character growth *semicolon* she was just stagnant as a character.

''

 

And his FEARS! Now that’s what I call realistic. As a literature student, I adored how universal and understandable it was. Or at least, made to be relateble and believable.

I just wished the Man on the Moon wasn’t given such a godly state as heavenly moonlight and would’ve been SHOWN to us. I really would. Plus, they never did resolve how Jack’s memories were literally stolen from him. He didn’t recall his past, so he couldn’t find his “centre”. (Pish posh, what’s this? I spell with a single British spelling, and spell check is on my case…huh. I guess being half American and yet being in British schooling would be confusing sometimes…) Nor did they resolve or show how he handled the silence from the Man on the Moon after so long, and about such important matters. I mean, the poor guy was having an identity crisis for over 300 years. That’s no light matter.

La la la, but really. I loved this movie. Maybe not overall as much as Frozen, but I do like Jack Frost much more than Elsa. But she is easily the better architect, sorry about that, Frost. Just being honest.

But, fear not, you are the 21st of December. So cheers to that!

Oh, and of course, I just HAVE to compare this part of the animation- which had better ice, frost, snow, snowflakes? It’s pretty tough- I’ve decided that both movies win a few awards there. Frozen gets best overall ice and specifically snowflakes. But Rise of the Guardian’s gets frost, easy. But then again- cuz of Frost’s name, there wasn’t all that much focus on ice either, nor individual snowflakes, so it’s not like you’re exposed to terrible ice animation throughout the film.

I say watch it. Definitely. Compare to Frozen, too. I’m sure y’all will. I’d love to hear comparisons and other responses to the movie too.

Did you find the Russian Santa cooler than any other like me? Wish you had seen a six foot one bunny too? Or maybe wished you had Sandy on your charades team? Found Tooth a bit creepy with her feathers and half-hummingbird-ness? Found Frost cute, but strange that he didn’t wear shoes for no apparent reason?

…I actually forgot the hashtag I had for my literature ness D=

So for Cartoon Day..

After coming up with like three separate costume ideas for which cartoon character to go as, and that isn’t even counting the anime ones (Timmy Tuner from Fairly Odd Parents, Spanelli from Recess, Ash Ketchum from Pokemon, and Tyson Granger from Beyblade.), nor the ones I thought up for Ayesha,I finally got all dressed in my large green sweater, black skinnies, and a size too big black converse that I stole from Que (yuuup, I was THAT dedicated to my costume. I could’ve just worn my grey boots or black flats- but NO, I HAAAD to wear black converse. Big ones, at that.), and went as Number 3 from the Kids Next Door!

Numbah 3

 

It worked that I had straight, dark hair. And I’m short, so passing off as a kid has never been a true challenge. And I act like number three too, so that works ^_^

The best part was that I could burst into song- THIS song!

Rainbow monkeys, Rainbow monkeys, oh so very round and suuuper chunky!
Bringing loove wherever they go. Everyone’s made of a biig rainboooow!
Oh, red and orange, and pink and bluue,
Rainbow monkeys, Rainbow monkeys, we love yooou!!

And it would make total sense.

RAINBOW MONKEY!

The coolest thing was when I told Zaid I was Number 3 from KND, and he just had this *mindblown* expression on his face, scanned me, then went “you are!!”. But it wasn’t my outfit he was talking about, he meant that I AM Number 3. “you ARE Number 3!!”

It was fab.

Then there was this total #Beelive moment where I found out that apparently Alya went as Number 3 as well last year on Cartoon Day =D I had no idea, and I didn’t even discuss with her my costume for the day! So perfect, my beelive buddy =3

There was also some other really awesome costumes. Zaid just became “cartoony” and not a cartoon character. He wore a Daffy Duck T-shirt (one I wish was mine >.> ), jeans, SHORTS on top of the jeans, a blue strippy TIE, and a hoodie. He looked retarded and utterly hilarious.

Shayan’s costume was utterly amazing too. He wore a suit, and when asked da hell he was, he would play a song on his phone, unbutton his shirt, and flash the superman tee he was wearing underneath it. It was pretty coolio.

But not nearly as coolio as the conversation/argument/debate-ish we were having at the end of Computers.

Which was basically debating upon who was cooler- Shayan as Superman, or me as Number 3. And who had the cooler song (really, what kind of question is that? Rainbow Monkeys FTW!)

He went on how he could fly to and back from the Sun.
Pshaw, I’ve been flying since I was four! And bro, I AM the sun.
He kind of stopped there. I didn’t even get to say that without me, the sun, he wouldn’t even HAVE any super powers =(

This other dude, in Physics, Rana, thought I was the Green Lantern =O Cuz I was wearing this ring that looked like his, with a silver band, and a green gem. (Aka my Mist Guardian Yamamoto ring. Well, I named it such today, when I tried on Alya’s legit Guardian Yamamoto ring, and it matched the color of the stone in that one perfectly.) It was just SO awesome and totally made my day. I’ve been saying that I am the Green Lantern since I was in third grade. And now someone thought I actually was, even though I was dressed as something totally different. But still- it’s a part of me, and it was recognized, so I feel awesome.

Green is a huuuge contributor to me. It’s  a part of me, it simply is, for so many reasons. Ireland, Green Lantern, the Mint Chutney, Number 3 now maybe?, Shamlocks, clovers, and sooo much more =3

But still, it was fun today ^_^

Lyla went as OceanBird, Mandark/Suzan’s mom from Dexter’s Laboratory. Ammar went as TJ from Recess. I’m so glad I didn’t go as Spanelli after that =P But I didn’t see Ammar wear the hat at ALL, so I felt pretty ripped off =Y

Alya went all out and wore her Batman tights, but that’s all that was cartoony about her outfit =/

Amal stole Alya’s comic hoodie.

Tomorrow’s the day we wear white. And I don’t own anything white except for this one shirt that’s got this rainbow spider web on it, which kind of defeats the purpose of the day being themed white…I’d totally wear that, but it’s packed away in my Summer stuff, so I don’t think I’ll be able to get it out…Then the only other thing is my special special sequin snowflake sweater, but it’s too sacred to wear just cuz of the white theme. So I’m still figuring out what to do for that.

There’s also a Pajama Day, and that is the day I go yelling “Eh, Pajama party, is it?!” to everyone, and hoping beyond hope that someone gets that I’m quoting Mad Eye Moody.

Well, that’s all, I guess. Now to actually out a small theory that I firmly believe in. And all theories/philosophies deserve their own posts. It’s only natural that they be given such importance.

So now I poof.

nope.

HA HA, I deciiiieeeved you!

A Fantastic Comic Site- SatW

So I’ve been prowling the net for a website which displays cute, and interesting comics that need not be professional, detailed as much as something like the DC ones, or even with much of a plot.

And now, after so so SO long, I have finally come across a site worthy of mentioning, because it’s just SO impressive and perfectly what I was looking for!

I introduce to you, and I do hope you’ll enjoy it, the satwcomic.com ! It’s Scandinavia and the World comics =)

satw posre

The characters are countries, and they all have stereotypes attached to them- America is blonde and buff, meddling in everyone’s affairs, with very little knowledge on the European countries. Sweden is a typical nerdy character, with his hair slicked to one side, wearing glasses and a collared shirt at all times. Denmark is happy go lucky, has cute floppy hair, and is rarely ever seen without a bottle of beer in his hands. Finland is a mute, menacing man in a ski-hat (the kind that covers your ears?), and always carrying a knife.

^[left to right- America, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Yes, it is a thing, and a totally normal one at that, for Norway to be carrying a fish around everywhere.][And no, America is fair skinned, but in some comics he’s got a spray on tan that doesn’t look real one bit.]

The countries wear shirts with their flags on them, and trust me, sometimes even that inspires a short story, like this. It’s hilarious!

The stories are sometimes just random, inspired by real-life occurrences, or even historically enlightening! Myths and the Scandinavian’s perception of other countries is a constant theme in these sketches, and I love it. It’s fun, interesting, and funny.

^This is a panel that cracks me up everyyyy time xD That’s America as a child, and here, England is his father =3 How cute is that? (Canada is America’s brother.) This is what happens when England ignores America when he was showing him all sorts of things as a kid…The tea got what it had coming to it =/

The drawing style itself catches my eye. Possibly cuz it resembles mine so much. The character’s are,  usually lanky chibis like the power puff girls. Although that’s hardly fair, since this artwork is amazing, not over the top, but the simplicity gives it dignity and it has an admirable effect. It’s fantastic, and I spent all of yesterday stalking that site. I’ve read nearly all the comics that have been posted in the past three years…It’s adorable and I love it ❤

I’d definitely recommend visiting this site every now and then to see what the Nordics are up to =) It’s worth it ^_^

Anyhoo, that’s all that there is towards this tiny post that I should have written yesterday….B-but, I was reaaaally absorbed in reading the comics then >.<

YMGE- YESH, im going!

Budapest, hungary, here i come~! =D

im suuuuper ecstatic about this MUN…its going to be sooo coool for sooo many reasons xD

i still cant believe im going. i kept crying to my super strict parents to let me go, especially since i didnt go to the Yale Prague one last year. But they turned away from my pleading with points of how insanely expensive it is, how im still too young, and how id miss out on too much school work.

Now, first, i just googled YMGE to actually SEE what it stands for. which is the Yale Government MUN Europe apparently. aaand i shall simple put the link for the official thingie here.

Its a trip of ten days last i heard, and its a four day MUN, i believe. or five. god knows. i hear something different form every person going. (someone even said NINE, dammit. -.- ) its in november, in the winter, so i might actually see SNOW after so loooong. i miss that pretty sparkly and fluffy soft looking snow =3 especially coming form Chicago, snow reminds me of home ^_^ and theres no snow in the particular city i am currently residing in =/ just hail. hail that HURTS. (dat hike, remember?) so yeah. no really homey feeling with the weather here. (especially that the leaves dont go beautiful shades of brown, amber, red, orange, yellow and golds. they just turn a pale green, if anything, then drop to the ground. it is the WORST autumn i have ever seen. but such a rant deserves its own post. but not today. some other time then.)

i just checked the YMGE site and there specialized committee is NATO O.o whoah. i wasnt expecting that at a government MUN :O but then again, im pretty unfamiliar with the format for this kinda MUN. ive only ever done the UN MUNs with committees like UNEP, HRC, DISEC, SOCHUM, etc. (where i have been isreal twice, and ireland once. Yep, The I is for Irish was IRELAND ❤ ikr?! xD ) (imagine being israel in disec =/ more on that in another para…)

so yeaaah, reasons i shall enjoy this trip like hell,

1. its my first ever trip alone-ish (no relatives) to Europe
2. Im going with my best friend Ayesha, and ill be rooming with her for ten whole days xD since weve both never been free enough to do sleep overs, this is a total first =P
3. I love plane rides. like insanely love them. looong ones are the BEST. like fourteen hours. or more. or even twelves good. But im not sure how long this flight is…nine maybe? i shall google it now. dammit, its only six and a half hours -.- i was reaaaallyyy hoping for a much longer flight…oh wyell….bleh =P but still. plane rides are fun ^_^
*sorry, i poofed for a bit, i had to baby sit rida and now i shall be munching on pasta while typing the rest of this out. lets seee where was i…*
4. the crowd im going with shall be mostly super fun ^_^ theres only one person i hate and find irritating as hell (yup, assads going =/ uugh, shes soo annoying -.- i shall explain one legit reason why i dont like her in a bit) then the druggies and drinkers know im not that kinda hippie and shall leave me out of it. plus, since this time ayesha and i shall be sharing a room, there wont be anyone smoking (and smoking week) in there at all. so phewww. last time, a chick smoked and the room was suffocating. for obvious reasons i had to go sit in the hallway to clear my head then i barged in on the guys room and made origami there while watching phineas and ferb like a boss. at like 3 am. pluuus, theres Ayesha’s BFF coming too xD so i cant waaait to see how he tries to tighten that friendship with her now =P or maybe hell stalk her into her committee sessions, while ditching his own :O ooor, he might even come out of the closet =P yeaah, im mean. but then aziz did say that hell never room with him, and then mishaal said itd actually be safer for him to room with a chick. ahahahahaha =D so yeah, theres that. then theres aziz coming along as well which is fun, cuz hes pretty decent. i mean, he drinks, but doesnt smoke, and hes nice to ayesha and me. hes pretty cool, so thats good. other people shall be doing there own thing, so we dont really have to worry about who to hang out with. plus, i totally plan on making friends there. who knows, maybe my The Irish Love Me dream prophecized this and i shall meet a hot irish dude :O and maybe, juuust maybe, ayesha will find the french chick from that dream too xD and if were lucky, the dream might just end the same way for her =P hahaha so yeaaah
5. Shooopppiiing. i know its europe, but STILL. i shall shop. and winter sales ❤ wohoo =3 plus, aziz needs help picking out clothes for his older sister, sarah. (i find it the FUNNEST shopping for other people)
6. and and and its a YALE MUN. YAAALE ❤ my dream school. so im thrilled to say itll look pretty impressive on my college app if i do go =3 and win =D a girl can dream, kay? and then theres the whole thing that

I AM INFACT GOIIIING~!!! xD >x< =D 😉

cuz my dad already paid for it all so yay =3

and one more plus, since i have a US passport, i dont even need to get the visa! while almost everyone else does. =P *does a crazy dance*

aaand the list format is totally gone now =P oh wyell…so yeah, let me enlighten my non-existent readers (sniff. pshaw, no, i dont really care about that since this is a scrapbook journal for future-me ^_^) and remind future-me why i dont really like eman asad.

One, i am simply and utterly irritated by her. just am. she didnt do anything to me personally, but i still dont like her. shes pretty hypocritical and THAT VOICE. UGH. its the most annoying sound in the world. plus she ends her sentences with ‘na’ and in a pretty whinny voice -.- oh, and i dont mean she has a pretty voice. she doesnt. i mean, she has a very whinny voice. as in, adverb. still. so. so. SO. irritating. Then shes one of those girls who are simply aunties at heart. and she brings like an original Louis Viton purse to school =/ her entire crowd does. but to me, its just cheap. they try so hard to be sophisticated and have all this designer stuff, yet it backfires so immensely.

Two, theres the scene where i saw her in the girls bathroom putting on enough make up for her own prom. (and here, its not very normal for teenaged girls to wear make up on a daily basis. us desi. were all about the natural beauty ^_^ ) so shes got a HUUUGE make up bag, the size of a folder, and shes putting on eyeliner, eye shadow, and even mascara. she had bottles of foundation and blusher in there too. guess i missed that bit of her magical make over. and when i did come out of the stall, i saw her and was obviously a bit shocked. you dont see scenes like this very often, especially when the chick putting on her make up looks like a kid and is dressed in her school uniform. but she continued like it was the most normal thing in the world. she had such concentration while doing it too. as i walked out of the stall and washed my hands, two other girls came in and we started a conversation. *interrupted once more by a call from ayesha -.- getting really tired of your shit, ayesha! (its a debate thing =P)* and she continued without so much as blinking, or even inevitably or involuntarily glancing to see who it was who just entered. geez.

Three, she actually did something personal to me. well, not personal so much, but it was super annoying. then she even started somewhat spreading a rumor! that girl =/ Basically, she thinks im a super goody goody who shouldnt go (since most the people going are going for partying.) (ironic, cuz everyone else is cool with me going, but her? not so much. loads of people think shell start rumors or tell on them since shes got such a holier-than-thou attitude.) and especially doesnt want me to go since i stole the spot for the trip she wants reserved for her best friend, sameen. thing is, sameen doesnt even want to GO. no clue why, shes got her own reasons so yeah. but still, emaan wants me off this trip so she can somehow convince sameen to go in my stead. Hah. so not happening. the first day, after the school announced which 16 people qualified to go (only 8 were actually picked by the debate coach, but the school wanted more *cough money cough* to go so they picked another 8) she came up to me and asked, all innocent like if i did indeed plan on going, or if i wasnt. dammit, you blah, yes, i am going -.- im an actual debater, why wouldnt i go?! Then a few days later she sorta started spreading a rumor about how i wasnt going anymore. which really pissed me off. ayeshas BFF came ove, all concerned and shit, that im not going. i just got angry and said ‘somebody’s been spreading rumors, but no, i AM infact going. so see you on the plane. (without sameen~ )’ gosh, i have yet to tell that little toont off for that. and maybe ill say something like that…’so eman, i paid for the trip, so its official, im going. so sorry sameen couldnt come in my place instead, tough luck. oh well…theres always next time, right? i mean, im sure youll win an award so theyll just HAVE to pick you again. oh, gotta go, see on the plane, kay? toodles~’ yeah, i should totally say something like that to her…

AAAAaaaaaaahhhhhh! i cant waaaait to gooo >x<

oh, and the hotel? its a FIVE STAR one! and it looks SO FREAKIN’ PRETTYYY~! (heres a link to some epic pictures i found while googling it) aaaand the conferences shall be there, so minimal chances of getting late! (oh no worries, ill manage somehow or the other. i like a challenge.) and so, all the other delegates and ministers will also be in the same hotel as us ^_^ huzzah to socializing~

so yeaaah, cant wait. plus, im sure the socials (social events. you know, the parties and dinners and all that MUNs have to encourage bonding with other people?) will be BRILLIANT.

aaah. more on this later, like when its close to the date of departure. date of departure. i like the sound of that.

so yeah, enough of this, i gotta go now =) so laterrrr~
