Lurking in the Library

Just about everyone I know has finals this week, or the next. BUT I DON’T. (I ended a week earlier, so I’m done with those icky exams!) So when my younger sister was told to go study at the library, I decided to tag along. Why? Why the heck not?! It’s a library! To quote Arthur, having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a library card! And I totally did, so time to go find books~

And so to the book I found! I stumbled across a Doctor Who book. No surprise there. But guess who the author is? Hm? IT’S DOUGLAS ADAMS, AAAH! Yes, the author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy wrote up, according to the book blurb a book: “based on the scripts for the original television series written by Douglas Adams, Shada tells the lost adventure of Doctor Who that never made it to the screen.”

And I sorta read a third of it right there and then- damn my reading speed TT^TT But besides my epic book find, there was so much going on in that library.

One, as soon as I walked in, I saw the sign that said how the study rooms A through C were open for any students to cram in. And then came the overflow of high schoolers taking up just about every sitting surface in that library! There were so many of them. To be honest, it warmed my heart to see so many people needing to study and knowing that I had zero intent to do that and that I was only there to read for reading’s sake and to enjoy myself. (Let’s ignore how Euler’s equation and sigma particle decay came up in my book.) Ah, it was wonderful. But after I found my book and a sofa to sit in, I actually started paying somewhat attention to the overly loud and zealous high schoolers around me. Ugh, there was this one group of Desis sitting right in front of me that were discussing Bollywood actors and saying their names wrong. Like, COME ON, GUYS. Ugh. They were annoying.

(I also talked to Hibah for a while on my phone and walked around since walk while you talk. #Telenor)

Then the people behind me got kicked out for talking too loudly and eventually these other dimwits showed up. They were discussing having to apply to unis next year and all that, so I’m sure they were juniors. They read off topics from their syllabus- stuff like combustion, metallic bonding, and some sort of reactivity (I zonned out for a bit). But then one of the girls said hey, let’s just focus on one thing at a time and start with something hard. To which they discussed balancing equations. Like, bro, that doesn’t even count as chemistry!! And they genuinely struggled with it. I couldn’t take it anymore and ran to look for more books.

Once they were gone, I came back to my sofa and read some more. But when I realized I was about to finish the book before I even left since I still had another two hours to go, I stopped reading and explored the library. (They had moved the manga shelves and I was determined to find it! Which I did, surprisingly quickly.)

Anyhoo, when it came time to gather my sister and leave, I went to find her, and in the process found some girls that were a year my juniors in high school! Tehreem, Nusrat, and some of their friends were at a table and just chilling. That was the only moment I thought it maybe wasn’t the brightest idea to wear my neon yellow oversized cardigan…(Pun intended.)

Needless to say, I ran for it as soon as I recognized them, and I’m hoping they didn’t see me. I know I didn’t make eye contact with any of them. Now, I wouldn’t have minded saying hi to them, especially as I was leaving anyways, but I know Tehreem has some dholki thing going on for her cousin’s wedding and my cousin told me that she had somehow invited me. And I kinda really don’t wanna go…So if I saw her and she invited me in person, I’d either have to come up with a convincing lie on the spot which I didn’t want to. So I just ran for it instead. Yup.

And that was my library adventure today! Honestly, I can’t wait til tomorrow since I’m going again 😀

Just a Small Pick-me-up (made me feel awesome)

see, i dont date. i have my reasons. (religious ones too. but the internet is evidently no place for religion so just ignore that anyone…) either way, when i was in a random discussion today with an awesome friend of mine, Kamil, we were being nerds on fb and discussing our amazing note taking skills. When i suggested we discuss something less nerdy, he drastically changed topics (as a joke, i guess) and asked me about how many guys ive dated. (he used another word, but i dont know what it means, but im pretty sure its nothing good. so that goes unsaid. duh.) Being nine-year old me, i was kinda at a loss at how to reply. treat it as a joke, get offended, just respond….especially since he used a verb ive never heard of before.

amyhoo, after questioning him about the unheard of unknown word, he says he meant date (and pats me on the head. grr. i obviously told him off for that.) So i just decide to set the record straight, and just said i dont date. And then he said and i quote ‘Yeah, i know. (which proves that he was joking) *respect*’ and i felt AWESOME and super good about myself. most people usually dont have that reaction, as im sure you can guess.

(he later said something about a one and a half i didnt really get it. i shall simply assume he was a stalker. wow, if anyone besides us two reads that, they will have absolutely NO IDEA what im talking about or how exactly did a number conclude to stalking. oh well. it basically shall be nothing new. i amaze, baffle and astound many, its just what i do.)

yeaaah, i REALLY need to get to sleep now. its 1.34 am for gods sake….

so ‘night =3

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
