HELLO 2010. TOOK A YEAR FOR YOU TO GET HERE.

"And the award for the Most Tardy Blogger goes to......Urooba of Under Urooba's Umbrella!"
 "Ohmygoodygosh...I feel absolutely elated for even being considered for this revered title! There are many I'd like to thank--but who I could not have achieved this without, would be.....School! More specifically, my close friends: Homework, Stress, and Exams-Tests! I'd like to call 'em up on stage..."

So yeah. It's been ~3 weeks since I've blogged and I'm feeling the *void*.
Many times in the past 3 weeks, I've thought of sitting down to do a post, but my bulging backpack would get all tenacious, make me feel guilty, etc. Of course, then, countless hours of facebooking, staring at myself in the mirror, etc. would follow. So it's not like I've been productive. I should be. SHOULD BE. SOOO SHOULD BE.

Anyways!

So, 2009 is over! Happy 2014, internetlings!

MY 2009 (you can skip reading this; it's just the literary version of my thoughts):
  • discovered who my closest/real friends were (aww)
  • watched 3 Idiots and decided it was my favourite bollywood movie
  • was in my first "production"
  • felt good praying "taraweeh" at the mosque during Ramadan
  • been the most stressed I've EVER been
  • danced in the rain
  • SPLASHED in rain puddles

  • met a gajillion new people
  • applied for my first scholarship
  • discovered my strong dislike for chemistry
  • complained excessively about: the future, careers, classes, school....(ongoing)
  • saved a shell from Laguna Beach
  • discovered how amazingly and superbly delicious artichoke dip is
  • yelled at my printer
  • got my first 'N' on my report card (read: Needs improvement; for work habits)
  • HAD THE MOST FORMIDABLE, SENSATIONAL SURPRISE PARTY THROWN FROM The Clan DURING WHICH I WAS VERY, VERY SURPRISED
  • discovered I liked slam peotry
  • found out the word "whom" is pronounced like 'hoom' and not 'vom'
  • had my second crush of life (teehee)
  • got over my second crush of life (teehee)
  • went thrifting! --and scored some major swag
  •  didn't sleep before 11 pm ~nocturnal~
  • TOOK NAPS during DAYTIME for goodness' sake!
  • find out Sacramento still has nice weather in October
  • witnessed/attended a beautiful wedding of my half-filipino-half-pakistani cousin to a polish women (P-cubed, ftw!)
  • had my strong dislike for the only person who I really strongly dislike, intensify
  • wasted the most time I've ever wasted
  • got shut out of calculus class
  • stole a pillow from a hotel (teehee)
  • discovered my intense love for all things fashion-related
  • started reading fashion blogs

Hey girl. Happy (belated) 2010! Haha. I read your list. I liked it. Especially the part about getting an "N." I've never heard of getting N's until now. LEARN SOMETHING NEW EACH DAY!

And your shoes are flyyy. (And for the record, I never say fly.)
