DRIVING LICENSE ACHIEVED

Achievement unlocked: Driving License acquired.

So the past year and a few months have been rough with me getting a license.

First, I had to wait a few months to get a permit since I was already 17, but I didn’t want to enroll in a drivers ed class. Once I passed and got my permit the first time, I was prepared to learn how to drive from either Barey Ammi or Barey Abu as soooon as possible, but Abu dropped the bomb on me of how I wasn’t allowed to drive their calls for fear I should damage them and he having to pay for repairs -.-” I got to drive them anyways a few times for practise just like that, but never enough to learn how to drive. Ramadan came and went and there was no progress made. Asma got her permit then and learned to drive before me. It was verrryyyyy infuriating.

A year later, Ammi and Abu and the entire family moved here. Abu had the audacity to ask why I hadn’t learned to drive yet and apparently FORGOT he had banned me from learning to drive in the only cars available for me to drive in. GEEZ.

Anyhoo, I started practising every now and then until we got our own van, but Abu wanted me to drive a smaller car for the test and we needed to get a second car anyways, so I started practising on the tinier one once we got it. The bulk of my driving practise was at night during the end of the fall semester and the beginning of the spring one, yet I still haven’t driven in snow yet. Ammi wouldn’t let me.

Finally, the summer vacation started and my morning practise drives were implemented. I was totally ready to drive in real traffic now after my sporadic drives earlier in the spring.

Then the tedious and absolutely infuriating drives down to the stupidest dmv in the world began. I was turned away the first time because I hadn’t taken some stupid drivers ed for adult class that was implemented like two years ago ugh. Had to enroll in that, ugh, it was sooo stupid. But ey, Dale and Hank the master hillbillies of driving signs did make the experience more bearable.

Once that was done with, I waited for the certificate of completion, my proof of passing the class to arrive through email which took a few days (but that was my own fault since I apparently didn’t call them and confirm my email address). Done and done, I showed up at the dmv on Saturday to take the road test.

AND THIS STUPID BIMBO DIDN’T LET ME EVEN GET IN LINE. She turned me away saying “sorry, we’re really full today so even though we’re open, we aren’t taking any road tests today. Come back Tuesday.”(Cuz they’re closed on Mondays too.)

Tuesday comes, and two hours of waiting later, my test happens. And I got failed. EVEN THOUGH I DID NOTHING WRONG. I had stopped at a red light, in the turn right only lane, and checked that there was no oncoming traffic, THEN TURNED. There was no “No turn on red”sign either. But this bandi goes all up you aren’t everrrr allowed to turn on a red blah blah. Screw her.

SO TODAY, Wednesday, I show up and BAM PASS IT FINALLYYYY.

The picture isn’t the greatest, but as you know, I believe in all super important ID pictures turning out terrible always. Regardless of what you do, or how you prepare for it. The only exceptions to this has been my most recent passport picture. The picture would’ve been a-okay awesome if there wasn’t a flash, but there was and once again, I have the shine of brilliance upon my forehead xD It’s definitely not as bad as my last government issued ID so it’s all good. Thankfully, I can put that away now :3

I should drive out and get ice cream now muahahahaha. Jk too broke.

The CIE O-level Result

i just got m result, and after a veryyyy hectic way in which i got it…but more on that later. the actual result. *gaaasssp*

*le drumroll…*

picture034

Its a baad shot, to say the least, but its a shot nonetheless of my ‘Provisional’ (whatever that means) Result. And its STRAIGHT As!! I got an A in aaaalll my subjects except for two, in which i got A STARS/A*s!!! can you believe it?! i sure as hell cant!! im dreaming~ but its REAL. dun dun duuuun. <indeed. hah. i laugh at my previous freak out now, but its still justifiable. anyways, Fari khala and co. are about to drop by to smother me with hugs, kisses, and congratulations, so ill poof for a bit then chill and tell aaaall the details. but until then heres the typed out result~

English Language                              A
Literature in English                         A*
Mathematics (syllabus D)               A
Physics                                                  A*
Chemistry                                            A
Biology                                                  A

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAh. i got A*s in my WORST subjects! there is OFFICIALLY something wrong in the universe if I am getting A*s in Physics and LITERATURE. just WOW. and top of the class, Ayesha got a B in literature! in the subject i nicknamed Blasphemy, i didnt just PASS (which in itself is an accomplishment worthy of a feast and lavish presents) but i passed with the highest attainable grade! im so mindblown right now O.o

And physics- ! its an even BIGGER surprise…after the exam i thought id get a C if i was lucky. i knew nothiiiing, and i made up stuff. after the exam, everyone was all like, ‘no silly, you were supposed to do it like this, not that. that was completely and utterly wrong-but, oh its ok!  *seeing my face fall into a look of eternal despair and sorrow* im sure it wasnt all that wrong, and and youll get points for trying, right? (you do not.) oh, do cheer up now!'(m friends became someone out of the Great Gatsby after a bit. literature shall never leave my life, now shall it? oh weeeell~)

And then  i didnt get an A* in math, my best subject which is a huge let down. but its an ok let down when you look at the facts. paper II was insanely hard, harder than i expected. i messed up an ENTIRE 12 mark question, or atleast thought i did. I barely knew how to do many of the tough questions. and after the exam, i thought that the cold hard fact was that i was maybe getting a B, which for me is like a U- in math. im sorry, but i find math easy, and therefore if i get anything less than an A, i will be disappointed. and yet, im thrilled i got an A, cuz here the exam was terrible. so i wont regive the math exam. mayyyybe. lalalalala~ wohoo, highstandards~!

So now im all glammed up wearing shiny earrings and a long silver beaded necklace i got on my birthday, cuz i feel like im actually living up to my name, atleast intellectually. ‘its about time, too.’ oh shushy, brain. FYI, my name means Brilliant/Radiant. the radiant part i got down with my sunshiney and crazy personality, sparkling with facets of different personalities. (and no, on a side note i have not been diagnosed with MPD. so yeah.)

now i just got back form fari khalahs, and i talked to BK  too. i also, fyi, got to know armeens, amnas, ayeshas, and ahsens results (*cough got better than them cough*). yay ❤ but everyones result is better than they expected so almost everyones happy about it (except waleed. poor guy. speaking of which, i have to go talk to him about his result soon too.) so yippee~ (that sounds so mean after typing out the first pair of brackets and whats in them…huh.)

so now imma go get changed into comfy pjs, splash my face with water, and relaaaxe for a bit before i dive into the narrrations of what happened today. until then.

*poof*

aaaand im FINALLY back. phew. im still getting congrats calls =P oh well, deal with those all later. now in my ‘we’re all mad here’ alice in wonderland tee and tinkerbell heart printed graffiti pj bottoms listening to ‘swing low, let it rip’ (obviously a beyblade song. duh.), i can finally sorta chill out and rewind to what happened. or not. i gotta go skype with BK then cut the Well Done cake (not only did i get one cake, i got TWO?!!)

so for a second time, juuust for a bit (‘yeah riiiight *imagine an eyeroll*’ shush it briaaan >.< ) *poof*

ok. so what happened today? from the begining.

we students got a text kay (no, not really, the school always forgets to text my parents. grr. -.-) well have to pick up our result from the O-level branch at 12.30pm. later at night, the school sends out a fb message (a super unfair thing too, cuz not everyones on fb >.>) and i see it (glad i visit fb once in a blue moon atleast. i just got THAT bored that i was on fb. i otherwise never am.) and it says that were supposed to pick up our result after 3pm. THREEE!! so i chill, wake up at 1.30pm, distract myself with reading Fallen so that im not too tense, and i find out from my mom kay Uncle Man (hunain? remember that weirdo? =D ) got TEN A*s and one A =O i was blown away and super pressurized with that…i mean, i had NO expectations of any A*s and barely any As. so iwas suuuuper freaked out then. but then, ammi gets a call from Siama teacher who goes on about how her son (my classfellow, saad) already GOT his result, and so i have five minutes to get dressed, and rush out the door into the rain with my bud and neighbor zara to get our results at like 2pm or 1.45 maybe. we get them, hug, yell, cheer, and leave the school cuz there werent any other from the graduated O-level class there. so we come home, cheer and yell some more, smile and grin like craaazzyy and proceed to spread the news~ wohoo~

thats when fari khala came over, congradulated me, brought a bouquet ❤ aww and a cake with a message (Well Done *insert mah real name here xD*) which was grammatically incorrect (Well Done *COMMA*  *insert mah real name here*) and then after pictures and fb updates, we rushed off to her house, where the adults (not me. duuuh.) had tea and then us kids had yummeh snacks. then we rushed on home and and and

ahem. ‘calm down, yo.’ silence, brian! ‘hmph. just trying to help..’ >.>

and ate an early dinner and then now just waiting for a skype call and talked to ishi on fb (he got a cat named LOKI. how cool is that?!) and talked to loooaaads more people on fb, congratulating them all, and wishing them good luck if theyre gonna regive a couple exams. so thats all awesome and yay and happyish ^_^

i say happyish cuz despite all of this wonderfulness im still super miffed off right now, and i already cried today. not tears of joy. im in a bad mood mostly cuz of my huge puddle of mud sister whos not raining on my parade but sploshing dirty icky hadia-infested mud onto the banners and streamers and madhatters (yesh, plural.) shes in a bad mood, hates not being the centre of attention and hates me being happy. shes just being all huffy puffy and yelling at everyone, my mom, me, and que. its bothersome and irksome -.- shes even all angry at me for not already presenting her my cake in beautifully cut slices on a gold platter to her. hmph.

well, i have to justify to my future self WHY i was crying. i dont cry often, and even if i do, its at home and usual stress/mental breakdowns. so todays was a stress related one. sorta. my parents are asian. are super strict stereotypical asians, they want me to be a doctor. and ive decided for SURE that i dont. i dont want to go into dentistry i DONT want to be a doctor, i dont want to study medicine. i dont know what i want to do yet, but good grades isnt enough for my parents. i have to be top, which i am accomplishing somehow or the other, and i have to know what im doing with my life. no, not even that. i have to have every little detail planned out of my life. its nerve wracking. no, nerve RACKING. (‘rack’d with pains that conquere trust’. a lit student for now and for ever. -in memoriam, lord alfred tennyson. i didnt even know that i knew that quote. huh.) either way, i hate it. grr. and it made me cry. boo hoo =Y

aaaand now im sorta out of things to talk about…oh cake!

so besides the cake i got from my auntie dearest, i got a cake from Zara =O it was a surprise and an awesome one at that ❤ shes my neighbor and she got all As- and midsenence i poofed to greet and thank my uncle who just showed up out of the blue to congragulate me- except one B, which was in Math. and for her, that was an AMAZING result. so i got cake from her, and when we both got our results, we were hugging and yelling and grinning our teeth out. (ew, what DISGUTING imagery. pfft.)

side note- i saw sir yasir at school, the suuuper creepy basketball couch person and he was handling the O1 results, while i was getting my O2 one. so he was chill, and just asking about my younger brother (starting O1 this year) and it was just annoying. DUUDE. can you not SEE that i am getting the result of the past two years of labour? can you not see HOW tense and freaked out i am? i nearly turned around and bit his head off with snarky remarks. but my perfect p-p-p-p-poker face was in place and worked too. yay, maybe. oh, the perks of being the best actress at school =/

SO, i got my result which made me happy, this post is nearly so far 1,700 something words long, and counting, so i thiiiink i should just shut up, post it, and get onto skyping with BK. and thats that. so laterrr, i shall post again later (not about beyblade today, maybe later) possibly about pressure, or a weird dream, or the skype talk or random shiz like- i have no clue right now. oh yeah, my writing. you read that right. my WRITING. i shall now leave yall in suspence with that tidbit of news and now

*poof*

for real, too xD
