Some Updates and A Quote by a soon to be famous Loser.


Loverboy by Michelle Jaffe was awesome as far as the mystery was concerned.  The mystery was seriously midblowing, and I couldnot, in a  thousand years see it coming AT ALL.
Loved it. The romance was kinda lame, but AT LEAST THERE WAS ROMANCE.

I honesty picked the book up, because Michelle Jaffe is an awesome friend of Meg Cabot, and Meg is always going on about how great Jaffe's books are, so since the book was JUST  a hundred rupees and Meg liked it, I decided to give it a try.
I was not disappointed :D.
Its about a serial killer who makes collages embedded with clues and then hands em over to the FBI.
Gotta love the idea right?

The Quote:

Life iz nut fare. Daz how it iz dare. U tayk Kare. Don't lat your eye gief tare. U r rare. The end is Nare. Eat cake with triple lare. Drive car on top gare. Always buy sox in pare. On eid new clothes ware. Ok?

Jessica's Guide To Dating On The Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey

Was awesome. When I read it was about vampires, it kinda put me off. I mean really? Another Vamp book? Okay, I know I loved Twilight but I think most of us have had enough of vampires. Movies/TV shows/ Books- they're EVERYWHERE. So anyway, when I finally DID open the book and began to read, all can say is, I was happily surprised. This book was like quicksand, pulling me into it thick and fast. It was full of emotion, and plenty of laugh out loud moments. The romance was well developed and very sexy, and yes, I admit Lucius was SO EFFING HOT- So I may be a tad bit biased. Heres the what its about: The undead can really screw up your senior year ... Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancé. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction. The one thing you need to know about this book is, that the title is very misleading, since theres no real 'Dating Guide'. Its mostly about how Jessica discovers love and herself through her vampire heritage. I do wish that the ending had been better developed- I felt in some places that the romance was a bit too cheesy, specially at the end. Ans also, I wish the more emotional scenes were more well, well written. I mean, they totally had the potential to make me cry, and really make me feel, but they didnt because it felt she had kind of rushed through them. But in all, the book was pretty awesome. And a totally great for when you want an intense, but funny romance with a sexy hero and a wonderful heroine. I'll give it 3.9 stars out of 5. READ IT. I dont think you'll regret it. xx CLG.

Forever Confused

If you have not, then you MUST watch it.
I'm going to do the exact aisle dance at my wedding.

I am so confused.
Yes SAT? No SAT?
What about early decision? What about COLLEGES?
How do you chose the best, where do you START?
Is A levels even important?
What if my GPA doesnt step up?
Am I going to be stuck here forever?
Will I get a chance to escape?

When I feel bad

Its always you
whenever I'm blue

upside down

what I'm all about

its always you
whenever I'm blue

Its always you baby. ;)

My Teenage Dream

The latest episode was so adorable with the whole Kurt thing!
And I used to HATE Teenage Dream because of the stupid lyrics and racy music video... but Glee has converted me once again.

So school is off for 9 whole days on account of Eid.
I'm happy about that, except the girls who I was supposed to have a mega sleepover plan with ditched at the last second, which isnt they're fault. But still.

Its not that bad though, I do have a buncha books and movies to lick anyways.
I miss my best friends. NONE of them is in the same city as me.
And that bites.
They're in Houston, Canada and Karachi, and I'm in Lahore.

In other news, I saw Get Him to The Greek, and to say FUNNIEST MOVIE EVAAAAA BICHEZZZZZZ,
wont be an exaggeration.


There is an African child inside me, after all.

On Life.

Its like this.

You find a beautiful butterfly. the prettiest you have ever seen, but you have to set it free- because it needs to survive, and you love it too much.

Or when you have a dog, man's (and your) best friend.
Except it keeps getting sick.
No matter how many times the vet fixes him up.
And finally, you have to give him away because the sickness is hurting you too.
And it pains to see the dog's deep and trusting eyes, and hear its whimper every night.
And to see it lose its wag again, and again, and once again.

Or when you're standing at the edge of a cliff.
To jump or to turn back and run for your life?
The bottom of the cliff- a coin toss. Heaven or hell, but behind you?
A limbo- a  bitter taste in your mouth.

Or when you fall in love with a litter of kittens. All feisty creatures, with thick and luscious white fur, and sweet pink paws. And you have to leave them, because your sister is allergic.

Or, you could just listen, to this.

Goli Maroon Tujhay, Dakku Daddy.

I think I might just be going crazy.

Maybe its the lack of sleep or the craziness of the A level world but I've started hearing things.

Like, literal, honest to god, creepy song-voices.

And not just any creepy song-voices... but the really cheesy and extremely tacky (albeit a little funny) voices of Dakku Daddy.

Yes. I have that song in my cell phone.
Its supposed to be my alarm tone so that I wake up every morning on time, and am fully awake thanks to its horrible melody+lyrics.
But my hand, alas, has bonded with the snooze button.

So anyway- I'm sitting in Physics class, trying to stay awake as the professor drones on and on about the torque of a couple and the equilibrium of forces {wtf?!- is right.} -when I hear it.

And it jerks me wide awake.
I scrambled for my phone to switch the horror off, when I realize... my phone is.. silent.

So I'm like, whateveeez. I made a mistake. No biggy.
And restart the torturous process of digging my nails into my arm to stay awake when once again, after a minute or two- the opening lyrics and cheesy female voice jolt me out of my jaded state.
And my phone is STILL SILENT.

I stared at the blank screen for a few seconds, wondering if there was something in my qeema sandwich that I'd had just before class, but then when the music did not start again for a good minute or so, I gave up and went back to perfecting the AYWA look [asleep, yet wide awake] which consists of staring at the professor/white board and nodding ever so slightly when he looks at you and speaks, while actually dreaming about staring in your own Glee club and scoring all A*s simultaneously.

Dakku Daddy and I go way back.
Last year, the stupid godforsaken alarm rang almost WHENEVER I was in literature class, which needless to say, was filled with all the cool types- and therefore the snickers and smirks directed at me, along with the outright laughs were mortifying.
And then, not once, not twice- BUT THRICE it rang in the goddamn LIBRARY.

Heres how it went all 3 of the times:

The Gradual Realization [LOL!! HER PHONE JUST RANG IN THE LIBRARY!] followed by the Incredulous Look [wtf... is that her RINGTONE?!!!] and then finally the Sheer Amusement [ROTFLMFAO!!!!].
Oh and did I forget the Fazool Factor? [.... what a loser man*scoots away from paindoo daddy girl*]

So I'm sure you can imagine how I did NOT want a reenactment of that scene.
And how I was completely freaked out and a total paranoid wreck, flinching every time my phone buzzed, letting me know the battery was down.

The sad part was, I kept hearing little snips of the music every few seconds [TUM DAKKU HO KE DADDY!?] - and on the way home, I HEARD THE STUPID MUSIC PLAYING IN THE CAR AS WELL.
Except it was blurred around the edges,and very faint... BUT IT WAS REAL.

I hope it was.
Or else... I might just be going psycho.

One things for sure though.
I'm changing that alarm tone tonight.


Ps. this is a true story.

Love and Lillies

I finished Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles yesterday. I LOVE IT.

I'm currently reading Instaiable by Meg Cabot.
I love Meg Cabot.

I was halfway through Ash, by Malinda Lo, when I had to google it.
It was SUPPOSED to be a fairy tale retelling. I LOVE fairytale retellings! The best one ever is Beastly by Alex Flinn, which is an AWESOME retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
This was supposed to be about Cinderella.

What the FUCK.

I have never been so disappointed. 

I mean, I'm not hating on lesbians here.. but WHERE WAS THE PROMISED PRINCE CHARMING?
The lovely love story? 
This is not fair.
Those book reviewers should have given me a heads up man. Not cool.

I think I like someone. I'm not sure yet.
Tee hee.
>>Insert very girl giggle here<<

Gigantic Rant About Stupid Shit

The Almost-Slumber Party was yesterday, and to say it was big hit, would not be an exaggeration.

When the girls were leaving, I was really happy that everything had gone so well and how they had enjoyed so much.
Did I enjoy? Not really- I mean, it was nice- in a way, but I felt like the mother hen.
I was in charge of the whole music/movie/microphone. All the teachers sat on their fat asses and looked on, while I handled the whole thing.
Frankly, I dont think any one else could have done the job. They're too stupid for that.

The day before the party, I asked an 18 year old girl to give me suggestions as to what type of music they would like to listen to.
 This is the list she promptly texted me:

1.* Starstruckk
2.* Bonanza-belly dancer_ akon
3.The best damn thing_avril
4.* barbie girl_aqua
5.* Good girls gone bad_cobra starship
6.* Stereo love_edward maya
7.* Ring my bells_enrique
8.** Tick tock_kesha
9.**kiss where the sun dont shine
10.***Me and you

this was just the first ten ENGLISH songs... the list also includes popular songs like Vanilla Twilight, Girlfriend, 'Waka Waka', Baby-by Beiber.. the super hit- Hips dont lie.. Taylor Swift.. and other lovely tween tunes.

For dancing to.

There was a little note too:
 Yar jin pe stars hain wo ZAROOR lana!!

I kid you not.

At the party, I didnt seem to have enough dance tracks- they kept coming to me and at least a dozen of them were put off when I told them no, I didnt have any punjabi remixes.

They had to settle for Lover Mera Hit Hit.

Poor girls.

At one point, while we were all being served dinner, Aja Nachle started playing (the iPod was on shuffle-mode).
As soon as the girls realized which song it was- this is what I could make out  from the joyful screams that ensued :
Girl1- AB GANA START HUA HAI!!!!!!!!11

My aunt and I exchanged looks of the what-the-fuck-is-wrong-with-them variety, but that wasn't anything new since we generally kept exchanging such looks throughout the evening.

Especially when they 'voted' that they didnt want to watch a movie (Knight and Day) cause from 'SHUGAL KARNA HAI, YAH MOVIE?' Shugal won.

What was this shugal? I hear you ask.

[Shoo- gal]
Definition: An Urdu word meaning 'fun'.
Actual definition: Dancing like your butt is on fire to indian songs, hooting at the start of each song, exclaiming with joy how this so is your 'best favorite song ever!!!1!1!', doing the 'snake dance', the 'couple dance' and then taking pictures where you're half smiling/pouting and showing off your zehreeli sultry look.

Over Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.

After an hour of a lot of torturous shugal and other paindoo shit, it was time for a 'Dance/Singing Competition'! Yay! It was like, the biggest shugal of all. This O level girl danced like a complete crazy, so hard, that her pants actually slipped off her butt- SEVERAL TIMES [her shirt was too long to actually show off any flesh though], but the clingy tee obviously outlined her butt crack extremely well, so brownie points for trying!

I dont feel like writing an more about it- but the gist is, after several other random activities- freeze tag etc. It was finally over.
A lot of them came up to me, saying goodbye, a few even hugged and thanked me for whatever I'd done that day. After they'd gone, I picked up the mic and I sang.
I was too hoarse from all that shouting and running around (freeze tag) to be up to my full potential, but I wasn't all that bad. [Random thought-I wish I could get singing lessons.]

Anyway, so later on, after I went home, so fucking tired, after being on my feet for five hours straight and shit, what I was NOT expecting from my so-called friends was this:

I checked a ''friend's'' facebook profile to see if she had upped the pictures yet and this is the facebook status that simply, made my day:

MTK-enjoyed da slumber party!!!!!special thanks 2 YAXLY,AMANDA,NOREEN,ZEPHER,SWEETOO,AFIA,AROOJ,FOXY!!!!!I LUV U AWL!!!!bohat maza karwaya tum logoun nai!!!i want have a slumber party once again!!1!1!!!!*

*Names have been changed.

This made me so mad and very sad.
I'd been the one going bonkers over this stupid party.
Trying to arrange everything- from the stupid prizes for the party games, the whole music thing, the whole movie thing etc etc.
I made sure that we did everything perfectly, no school-screwups- to make the party a blast for the kids, so that they'd love their school- instead of hate it all the time, recognize how awesome/cool/nice I was therefore leading to me being better friends with everyone and finally feeling like I belonged, instead of like an outsider and this is what they conclude from my efforts.
I'd worked hard on finding the perfect prizes, the best movies and convincing my aunt to make various allowances- Et cetera, Et cetera and Et cetera .

But you know.

Well, its their loss. 
I'm done being nice to them, and trying to be friendly with their loser-ness. 
While I was in my corner, handling the music and shit, not one of them bothered to just come up and chat- they were too involved in their own friends.
Who cares about the new girl? The one whos helped make all this possible?
Lets all have fun with YAXLY,AMANDA,NOREEN,ZEPHER,SWEETOO,AFIA,AROOJ,FOXY and other random losers, thank them and love them, shall we?
The school still sucks, and what? CLG who?

I understand them now. 
In the past month, not one of them has made an effort to get to know me one bit- yeah, they're friendly, they've invited me out whenever they 'hang' and shit, but none of them, none, not a single person talks about ANYTHING that even remotely matters. I doubt any of them even knows what words like 'sarcasm', 'feminism' and 'book' even mean.
All they talk about is either their boyfriends, or how chawal everyone else is.

I'm done.
And frankly I'm better off on my own.
None of the fucking losers even wore PAJAMAS to the Goddamn PAJAMA/slumber party!


In other stupid shit-

Lahore is seriously intellectually pathetic, or so it seems.
The fucking city doesn't even have an A level literature teacher, who isn't teaching in LGS!
And apparently, the LGS teachers dont offer private tutions. 
I'm still looking though.. but so far the only option is:
Drop literature- the only subject I was good at.
Lets add to that how I still dont get anything in Chemistry AND Physics, how I'm a huge blog-fail, how I wont have any nice/normal friends here ever and so folks, we have:

Almost-Sleepover Help.

I have just realized, after staring at the screen for more than 20 minutes, Im crap at writing.


I also, exaggerate a lot, and I suck at spelling because if the spell check hadn't corrected me, this is what I was writing- 'exaguratte alot and I suck at speeling'.


I am currently trying to find nice movies to watch at the almost-sleepover I'm planning for school.
The deets are- 5-9pm, movie, games, snacks, possibly dinner.
Its supposed to be all girls, with their ages from 14 to 19. So, finding a movie which everyone is going to enjoy is hard, since this is Pakistan and kissing is strictly PG17.

So I'm thinking, either Love Wrecked:

or Knight and Day:

or 10 Things I Hate About You?

So its a temporary tattoo.
And technically its called Mehndi.

But same difference right?

Mehndi is something that girls usually paint their hands with every Eid.
Eid [pronounced: ee-d] is a three-day Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.
Its a herbal paste thing and its very pretty.

What I did to my hand this Eid.
This time, I didnt go get my hands painted. I dont really like most of the usual mehndi designs out there. I hate the bails and the big fat flower patterns. What I crave is intricacy, and above all, something different.

the usual mehndi designs out there

So I turned to the internet for help and thought of painting my hands myself. I got my designs from here and here.
Pretty, no?

I loved this. Its so different from the usual stuff, and so pretty.

 Eid was fun. 
Its been ages since I've had a proper Eid with the whole extended family and it felt really good. Everyone was oohing and aahing at how 'tall' I've grown and how they still remember me as that little girl they used to play with. I know I should be all 'aah, annoying aunties/uncles! Of course I've grown. Thats how it usually happens.' but to tell you the truth, it felt good. I felt loved.

What I did to my cousin's hand, this Eid.

And then there was the Eidi.
Aaah. Eidi.
I got a lot of it, this Eid, and GUESS WHAT I BOUGHT WITH SOME OF IT?

I cannot wait to read it. Stupid Bio test.
Gotta hate studying :l.
Gotta love Meg Cabot.

And oh, a fun fact for you- its an adult book, and since I just turned eighteen two weeks ago, guess what that makes me folks? 

Yep. And ADULT!

This fact makes me happy.

By leaving a comment telling me how your eid was!

Dont Drink and Drive... CAUSE YOU'RE 18.

We celebrated my 18th the day before yesterday!

It was so much fun.

Sal sent me a huge box of pressies, which included HP stuff, books, random jewelery and lots of letters. They also made a huge card for me, signed by all my Karachi friends.

It totally made my day.

At night, my khala (mom's sister) came over with a After Eight, sexy mint choc cake, which she'd made herself.
It was heaven.

She also brought a non-minty cake which was also really yummy.

Nanijan (my granny) made Chicken Ala Keiv which was sooooo delicious.
Hot, deep fried chicken- stuffed with herbs, cheese and butter. Mmmmmmm.

And they (the family) gave me money and chocolates and jewelery.

All in all, it was waaay better than my 17th, which was a huge FAIL.

So I'm grateful to God for that. <3

I cant believe I'm finally an adult though.
Its a scary thought. So much responsibility! I feel like I'm not ready.
But thankfully, I have awesome girlfriends and a pretty good family to help me get through!

I would like to learn how to drive though.



Ps- Thanks to Mobeen for the e-card!

I like to Draw.

I do.
I love to draw, except I dont draw much, I generally just doodle.

             Drawn on my iPod.
When I do doodle, I like to draw girls.
NOT 'dolls', but girls.

Doodled in Paint

Mostly I like to draw pretty, curvy girls.
Its not that I'm a pervert, its just- thats how I draw 'em!

Doodled in Paint.    

Some of my doodles turn out pretty sweet- even if I say so myself.. others.. not so much.
But.. who cares really?

I just- like to draw.

 Oh, and you can now contact me on my new email address-!

Back to School- Uncool.

So Monday was 'the first day of school'.
I was the official 'new girl'.

It was... well. Not horrible. But I'm not jumping for joy either.

I dont have any friends, there are no hot guys, everyone has a boyfriend/girlfriend and all of them hang out in close knit groups.
Oh they're friendly alright, but I feel so stupid just going up to them, sitting in their midst, with a huge I'm-the-loser-new-kid smile on my face and listen to them share inside jokes, make attempts to include me in the conversation and etc.
Its just, I feel like they're being forced to be my friend, or that they're going to think things like 'Just look at her, trying to get all cozy with us.'
Okay, I know that sounds completely silly, but heres the thing.
The college belong to my moms sister- my khala. Her husband is the Principal and founder, and my aunt is the director.
So, on the first day, a few of the girls were called to the office and told to be 'nice' to me and make me 'feel comfortable' and were promised that I wouldn't say anything 'against' them to the Principal/Director.

Now they're basically being forced to be nice to me.
How embarrassing.

Its only been two days so far, and I'm as uncool and lame as I'll ever be.
How pathetic.

I found a sexy book shop here though. Well, okay, I knew about it before, but it was lame back then- but now?
Such super sexy books FOR LESS THAN A DOLLAR.
I bought three books yesterday, I was drooling for more, but I'm kinda broke at the moment so yeah.
The books I bought:

Its about a girl who googles herself and finds a website dedicated her.
[Click on the book to get a better summary/blurb].

Just as the tittle suggests- its about 21 different Proms!
The thing that caught my eye was the star studded author list.. David LevithanE. Lockhart, Aimee Friedman  John Green, Melissa de la Cruz and Cecily von Ziegessar, just to name a few!
And Prom=Romance=Loveloveloooooove.



Its about a new girl (LIKE MEEE) who moves into a creepy town and finds out shes a witch! As well as other witches.
I love witchy stories- the paranormal genre rocks, so this seemed 

I read the first one. Cyber Cinderella was was really nice. The plot was awesome, but it slightly fell flat for me maybe because it was a bit too drawn out and I wanted her stalker to be a bit more impressive! 
But it was a light, quick read. Perfect for when you're bored and have nothing else to do!

Those Crazy Pakistanis.

Only in Pakistan.

I'm sure everyone has heard or read about the floods, the joota and the sialkot horror.

All I can say is.
We suck.
And should be ashamed of ourselves.

To help, what YOU (and I) can do is to DONATE generously please, and just pray. Also, look at this helpful post right here.
Pray that people stop being so stupid and make the little things count, and see how the bigger, better ones, fall right into place.

Looking at the horrifying video clips [YouTube] of the whole Sialkot thing, the only emotion I felt was anger. At the stupid people standing around the boys, mercilessly and literally  beating them to death. HOW THE FUCK COULD THEY DO THIS? We are NOT fucking savages!
The stupid police officers just enjoying the party and the kids, joining in the fun, taking a few swings with the sticks themselves. ALL IN THE HOLY MONTH OF RAMAZAN!
This is just seriously, unbelievable.

Another all time low for our gorgeous nation.
The frustrating thing is, we're not all like that! And that is something a majority of the world simply does not, [and some of them]can not, grasp.

I had a chat on Omegle with some boy, a few months ago.
After the asl part of the conversation, [he was from the USA] he asked me 'Do you hate me?'
And I was stumped and thoroughly confused.
'What...?' was my reply, but as I hit enter, I realized what he was talking about. And so I spent the next half an hour explaining to him that no, I do not support the Taliban, I definitely don't believe in terrorism/suicide bombings/ 9.11 etc, I could never even think of killing a human being and how, I certainly donot reside, in a mud house.

That was just where I was a born okay! We moved into a grass-and-wood hut as soon as I was ten.
So there.

In your face.

Packing, Sehri, Sadness, Opal Mehta.

I'm packing my stuff. Leaving for Lahore on Monday.

I think I have too much stuff.

Its almost sehri time! Things that I usually eat for sehri:

1.Left over iftari.
2. Apples and Peanut Butter.

I read:

 And I liked it.
Even though the author was almost killed for plagiarism and shit.


I will write a totally fluffy chick-lit book one day and YOU WILL READ IT.
And preferably like it.

Take Me There in 3 Days?

On the 16th Sal, and the rest threw me an awesome going away partaay at this really nice restaurant.

It was funfunfun, except for the part where they charged us for two extra dishes and then no one had enough money, and we all freaked out, and I had to pitch in AND ask my driver for money to cover the bill and we had to fight with the manager and make him admit that he had made a mistake.

But apart from that, it was fun.

They even celebrated my 18th that day, since I wont be here on the 3rd of September. [Sadness].

The gooey, chocolaty awesomeness 'going-away' & '18th Birthday' cake.

Sometimes, I feel so lucky that I have such awesome friends.
Remember my bff, the one who lives in Houston? They were actually going to set up a webcam-thing so he could 'attend', but the girl who was supposed to bring the laptop forgot. So that sucks. But its the thought that counts! And I love Sal for that. She was the main organizer, [though everyone helped] and I LOVE her for trying to make everything so perfect.

She almost succeeded in making it a 'surprise', but you know how cool I am- I totally knew what was going on so that was a huge FAIL.
It was her fault actually. We were supposed to be going for iftari, 'just us girls' and so I was wearing nice enough clothes, but not something uber cool, and she kept bugging me to pull on my skinnies and this sexy tee that I bought last week.

And I was like 'WHAT? OMG, DONT TELL ME, IS THE 'SURPRISE GOING-AWAY-PARTY TODAY?' And instead of faking it- she totally started laughing.

I mean seriously Sal, seriously?

Haha, and then she blames me for being 'too curious'.

Anyway, before that, (Saturday) I was actually, totally convinced that the party was on Tuesday and I was all 'SEE IM SUCH A GENIUS I FIGURED IT OUT, YOU GUYS ARE SO LAAAAAME' , and was saying things like 'DONT WORRY, I'LL ACT SURPRISED, WE'LL PRACTICE MY SURPRISED FACES TOMORROW' and all the while they were laughing at me for being so stupid.

Ah. The jokes on you suckerzzzz.

But its actually on me since I really wanted to be surprised for real this time. ME AND MY BIG MOUTH. I totally could have been you know. I had NO idea about Monday. My bets were placed on Tuesday.

A 'lovely going away gift'. Yeah, the guy who gave it to me thinks hes hilarious.

Alls well, that ends well though.


Packing up my books and things.

Three more days to a completely new life.
New house, friends, school- EVERYTHING.
Its scary in a way because in this last week mostly, I've realized that I seriously have some of the best friends I will EVER have. And I really dont want to lose them- at the peak of our friendship.
 I mean at the beginning of the year, I was so lost. But now I've found it again. And I dont want to lose it so soon!

Life is so unfair.

I also really want to read this book.

Dylan has a bad-boy past and a criminal record. He knows that rich, beautiful Jess is way too good for him—but she has always been the one person who sees through his tough exterior and straight to his heart, and he has been hopelessly in love with her from the first time they met. He would change his life for a chance with her.
But trouble follows Dylan wherever he goes, and a deadly mistake soon forces him to hit the road and leave his dreams behind. He’s on the run and in search of answers—answers to questions he wishes he’d never asked.

Here is an awesome review of the book, which makes me drool even more.

I saw Grown Ups last night. It was funny, yeah I LOL'd, but it didnt make me LMFAO. So it gets 2.8/5stars.
I guess I like movies that leave an impression on you. Either a happy fuzzy feeling or an 'OMG THAT WAS UNREAL' one.
Grown Ups is good if you're bored. But thats it. It doesn't have the feel-good-comedy after taste that you need when you watch a movie like this.

Sad or not, I cant wait for my other going-away presents.

How do YOU like your nuts?

I like them mostly in peanut butter form.

The best snack ever?

Chunky Peanut butter...


Now I know to some of the less adventurous folks, that might see a bit odd- but trust me-


Those are lyrics to this song I heard 24/7 when I was like five.
In the video, the little kid was first turning his nose up at spinach, but when prompted to 'try it'- whaddaya know, HE LIKED IT.
I liked it too.


I love chunky p.b because its just more yummy- a lil crunch with the sweet and salty smoothness, and the slight sourness of the apples makes it the most flavorful and almost-healthy snack EVAA.

In other news, THE A LEVEL RESULT IS TOMORROW, SO IF YOU ARE READING THIS, Please, please, please pray for me.
I need to get those A's (or- grudgingly B's) if I want to get into Med school.


Chunky? Smooth? On bread? With jelly?

How do you like your p.butter?

YouTube Whore?

Okay, no, that would require me to actually post some videos.
And yeah, thats a 'Shane Dawson' expression. 

But ever since I've gotten the pox, I have had a LOT of free time on my hands, [and by 'free time' yes- I do mean  reading, facebooking, blogging & stuffing my face] and so I've seen a lot of videos recently.

Gotta love YouTube.

Here are some of my latest discoveries.

My friend Sal got me hooked to this cute British you-tuber, Alex Day.

Is this not adorable?

And this is one of my most favorite cheesy love songs of ALL TIME.  At one point a few months ago, I could not stop marveling over how the lyrics fit in perfectly with how I was feeling.

Theres nothing in my heart but you.

I won! Wanna try your luck?

I went to my best friend's house today. It was fun. I cant believe I'm not going to see her again in five whole years Or so she says.
Its mainly due to the fact that she lives in Canada, and I'm moving to Lahore.
God. Life is so unfair at times.

But guess what really really REALLY sexy thing happened yesterday?

I know. Whatttay luck. [Except I hate saying 'whattay'].
Anyway I won these two books,

from this awesome blog.

Heres what they're all about:

From goodreads:

Madison MacDonald
Putnam, CT

Status: Single?

About Me:
Everything in my life was working out. I had my three best friends, a brand-new boyfriend, and the lead in the school play. Aside from that history paper I hadn't started, things felt perfect.

Then I returned from spring break to find my Friendverse profile hacked. Someone clearly out to ruin me had spilled the most damaging secrets - AND posted the worst photos of me ever taken - online.

Now my boyfriend and I are broken up, half the school hates me, and I'm in deep trouble.

Get my boyfriend back, figure out who could have done this, and clear my name!

Also, pass history. :p
Top 8 is book 1, and Whats Your St@tus is the sequel!
I was SO excited when I read that I was the winner! I screamed a lot, did the usual jump-and-dance jig. It was amazing. Before clicking on the 'Winner of Whats Your St@tus' post, I'd even said a little prayer, and- GOD LISTENED TO MEEE.

Gotta love God.

I'll be 18 on the 3rd of September, and I cant wait!
This time, for the first time ever, I'll be celebrating with family, and not friends.
I hope that turns out to be a good thing, rather than a downer.
Its my 18th for heaven's sake!

I think my 16th birthday was the BEST birthday ever.
It was surprise, hosted by my best friends. It was perfect. We went to my fav cafe, where I was surprised with a huge strawberry cream cake- mmmm. (Real strawberries, fresh cream, none of that icky- plastic-y icing business.) They'd even made sure my the then crush was present too! 
After a yummy lunch, we went to the beach and had a great time there.

Ah. Good times.

And now, here are some BOOK GIVEAWAY links, so you guys can enter to win too!
Click here, here & here.

All three of these are for the same giveaway hosted on three different book blogs- so you have extra EXTRA winning chances!

Fingers crossed & InshAllah!

And I Thought It was 'just itchiness'. + Pretty PICTURES

Everyone told me how Chickenpox was nothing to be worried about. Just a bit of itchiness, ugly red blisters all over, and then, good as new!

They were wrong.
And Sal. You were wrong.

Its way more than that. My whole body hurts so bad! I have abdominal pain, really bad back and neck aches, slight headaches, and yes- even ear aches.
Plus those ugly little fuckers, are EVER-FUCKING-WHERE.
Excuse my potty mouth please.
I'm in pain.

And so I googled CP, cause thats what google is for, and SEE? I'm not making it up!
So whoever is excusing me of being a drama queen? Shut up.

Chickenpox (varicella) is often heralded by a prodrome of anorexia, myalgia, nausea, fever, headache, sore throat, pain in both ears, complaints of pressure in head or swollen face, and malaise in adolescents and adults, while in children the first symptom is usually the development of a papular rash, followed by development of malaise, fever (a body temperature of 38 °C (100 °F), but may be as high as 42 °C (108 °F) in rare cases), and anorexia. Rarely cough, rhinitis, abdominal pain, and gastrointestinal distress has been reported in patients with varicella. Typically, the disease is more severe in adults.

It also says:  

To relieve the symptoms of chicken pox, people commonly use anti-itching creams and lotions. These lotions are not to be used on the face or close to the eyes.

And of course, WHY would my doctor feel the need to tell me that? FML.

And did you know, in some cases, Chickenpox can be fatal?

Yeah. Just my luck.

So, anyway, now on to the good stuff?

I went to Lahore for a week in the beginning of the month. From there, we went up north, to the beautiful valleys of Naran and Kaghan.
It was breathtakingly beyooooooooooooooooooooootiful there!
And we had so much fun! The bus rides (we rented a bus), the stops in funny hotels, the gorgeous scenery, the river rafting, the picnics by the river side, collecting pretty pebbles, the jeep rides- with the rugged mountains on one side, and a sheer 347534587357 feet drop on the other... *sigh*. I guess now that I'm actually moving to Lahore, trips like that wont be so rare. I guess that's one of upsides of moving.
But the downsides still suck.

Anyway, feast your eyes on Pakistan's beauty guys! This is obviously not all of it- its just like a 1% glimpse.

The view from our rooms.

River rafting! This is on the calmer parts of the river.

 Don't you love my shoes? The water was so cold, it was threatening to give me frostbite.

Passing through a glacier in our rented jeep.

Pretty flowers.

Funny Hotels- Exhibit A. {No, seriously, who DOES that?}

Can you hear the water? Whenever I look at this picture, the music of roaring waves always fill my head.

 Lovely, no?
If you want the full effect, click on them to enlarge! My blog is retarded and I don't know hot to post bigger pictures. (Help please?).

And yes, I am the owner of all these, I have taken them all.

Comment and let me know what you think of these, if you've been on an amazing holiday-place this summer and most importantly, MOVIE AND BOOK SUGGESTIONS!
Because as we all know, chickenpox is aka ISOLATION. And I need something to keep my mind of the pain/itching.

On another note, here is my formspring!  
Ask questions.

Love and Sickness,
