MY SENIOR YEAR THROUGH MY FACEBOOK STATUS UPDATES

Self explanatory, from the title. I'm a dweeb, I know! *I highlighted my favourite ones, loooool. This post is mostly for me, obviously. To reminisce. IT'S THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY OF MY SENIOR YEAR. 
***caution: wordy post***
 
september 2009
It's 6 AM. And I can't fall asleep. But the sky sure is beautiful at 6 AM. Sure is beeyooteeful.

I found a knife in my room. My sister's got some 'splaining to do.

 Finallyfinallyfinally applied for some scholarships today AND finished that dang summer math packet. WOAH. Double nerdy-fudgey-with-a-hint-of-walnuts-brownie points. Here's to feeling productive. [ :O ] Try me, grade 12, you oh-so-stressful-year, you.

 Holy moly ravioli, grade 12!

 Get me outta this funk.

 I'm outta this funk. (!)

 Hey Homework, you missed me during the summer, didn't you? You want me back, but the truth is, I've moved on. We need to end this. It's going nowhere. I do you every night. Sigh, but there's just something about you... somehow, I can't leave you.

 Eid Mubarak, y'all!


 HEY FACEBOOK FRIENDS, WANNA AVOID HOMEWORK and other such tedious nuisances of life? WELL THEN, watch this hilarious new show, called, MODERN FAMILY, TONIGHT ON ABC 9/8C! MY COUSIN, SAMEER, WRITES FOR IT. Pretty spiffy, huh? AND YEAH THIS IS FREE ADVERTISING.

 Me to We Day: The Dalai Lama, Jason Mraz, Jane Goodall, etc....Yeah, they're all just close, personal friends--that's why I'll be seeing them tomorrow. (!)

 3 weeks of stressful schooling-- I feel like I need to get away. OH WAIT, I AM. :D Sacremento tomorrow! + HAPPY BARFDAY FATTY ACID; Hiba Rajpar.<3

october 2009
Is in a "hotel, motel, holiday innnnn"! :) Sacremento, you make me forget about cold-ish weather, large amounts of homework, and a monotonous lifestyle, thanks.

 Leaving Sacremento tomorrow---nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! Such fun, including the "Triple P" or P-cubed wedding (pakistani-philipino-polish)! Congrats Omer and Kristin!



This is life: I got an insanely, ugly, low mark on my Math 'quest' and I'm not even completely and clinically depressed. :D Also, elephants are the only land animals that can cry, zomg!





I LOVE WHITE BREAD! (It's a delicacy in our house, fyi)

 Is conjuring up potential Grad Photo outfits. Bring on the sparkle. AND I MEAN SERIOUS SPARKLE. Straining-your-eyes sparkle. SERIOUS SPARKLE.




This weekend: UBC info session, Tavleen Aulakh's party + Sleepover avec THE CLAN! :D, Grad photos, The Edge project in Vancouver, family "party", and uhhh.....shitloads of homework.



I hope that you rest in peace, Richard Lam.



IF YOU HAVE MANY DESIRES YOUR LIFE WILL BE INTERESTING. -- JENNY HOLZER


MY FRIENDS, THE CLAN, ARE FUCKING AWESOME: THEY THREW ME A SURPRISE PARTY. IT WAS FANTASTICAL...AND A TOTAL SURPRISE! I LOVE YOU GUYS! ♥ ♥ ♥ :DDDDDD Also, thank you, facebook friends, also! :)


november 2009
Is completely and irrevocably chemiserable.


Anyone know of an effective and possibly entertaining way of learning 2 months of biology in a few measly hours? CML. D: 

Olivia Palermo [The City], you screwed up today. Let's switch spots. You do math/chem/bio, I take on interviewing fashion bloggers, get paid, and jumpstart/live my dream of a fashion/journalism career. Accccck, if life was that way, you wouldn't need a visa card. 

Is about to embark on a majorly long joggin' adventure with Tavleen Aulakh and Manmeet Grewal to Hiba Rajpar's house. HOT BOD, HERE I COME. 

"You'll Make Me Work So We Can Work To Work It Out....I Just Haven't Met You Yet." ♫♫ Woo baybay, this song just sounds SO PERFECT right now. Sooooo perfect! //Wants to like own status. 

Woah nelly, LUCKY DAY: BY SOME MIRACULOUS MIRACLE, GOT A MARVELOUS MARK ON MY MATH TEST, AND WON MY FIRST ONLINE FASHION BLOG GIVEAWAY! :DDDD Best of both worlds, shawty.

Going through a quarter-life crisis, no big deal.

Holy shift! Look at that assymptote on that mother function! 

 has decided: I hate grade 12.


needs some change. Both kinds: my life is as predictable as a B-grade hindi movie; and I've been running out of dimes, quarters, and oh yes, nickels. 

CELEBRATING NON-HOMEWORK DAY WITH A SIX-WAY PHONE CONVO, beeeeeeaches. Hiba Rajpar, Tavleen Aulakh, Manmeet Grewal, Ruby Gill, and ShubsiEEEES! Naveen A. Arain, WHERE ARE YA!?

Is a fucking moronic weakling for cramming for bio and calc the night before the fucking tests. Naveen A. Arain, you feel my fucking pain, right!? 'Course you do...I hear your anxiety over the phone.
(WHOA, I SWORE SO MUCH. //sadface). 


december 2009
FEELS THE NEED TO WRITE A STATUS UPDATE IN CAP LOCKS AT 3:20 AM, AS I WANT IT TO SPARK AN INTERESTING CONVERSATION THAT STIMULATES MY MIND, PERHAPS? BUT HONESTLY, I SHOULD SLEEP. NO ONE WILL READ THIS UPDATE ANYWAY. THEN WHY AM I CLICKING 'SHARE'... 



OMG, SO STOKED FOR 'The Edge Project'! DING, DING, DING....busy week starts NOW!

Is sleeping without touching homework, showering, or any of that jazz. I'll deal with the world tomorrow. GOODNIGHT. 

WOO, what a longinterestingfuntiringspiffyinteresting day! Challenge Day + The Edge Project, Performance Night One. Ahhhhhh. I'm pooped.

I REALLY, REALLY LOVE NICE PEOPLE. Today made me realize that!

just watched Art Attack. Omg, nostalgia. 

IS THRUSTING MY ARMS AND LEGS ABOUT IN AN EPIC MYRIAD OF ENTROPIC MOVEMENTS TO RADIOHEAD'S 'JIGSAW'. Familiar, anyone? ;) 

SNOWBALL IN LESS THAN ONE HOUR, SILVER METALLIC, SILVER SEQUINED OXFORDS---MAKE YOUR DEBUT TO THE WORLD! :DDDDDDD 

SNOWBALL WAS SO DAMN SPIFFY. :D And life would also be spiffy if my chem teach wasn't EVIL. (Test tomo! D:) 

Just calculated that I'm NINE days behind on Calculus homework. Looks like I've got some more calculating to do... ZING. 

-->Failure, sighsighsigh. Sending thought of free pancakes + Tavs's' party tomorrow--please, brain, release mood-enhancing endorphins. Don't fail on me now. 

FREE FOOD (pancake breakfast), SOOPER DOOPER SHORT classes, Shaikh's unusual generosity about marks in bio class, ordering Mcdicks from the drive-thru as PEDESTRIANS (unsuccessfully), talking about deep stuff with The Clan at a "wild party", wandering aimlessly through town (sorta)---today was a good day! FINALLY. :) 

"We always say please and thank you. Like, "Dude, can you PLEASE get the hell out of my way? Good God, THANK YOU!" 

 "What date is New Year's Eve?" -- Manmeet Grewal 

Just watched The Holiday, and MY GOSH, why was I not aware of Jude Law's cuteness!?! 

Went thrifting today and scored some major swag-- a blue metallic button up shirt and royal blue pumps! But I wish my mom hadn't acted so pretentious and would support my frugal endeavours. ♫ The Salvation Army is my store! ♫ ~:) 

Wants to meet some new, interesting, bizzare people.


january 2010
GOOD GRIEF, HAIR. Stop being so damn silky. WHY MUST I BE CURSED WITH SILKY HAIR!? D: *Silky hair is more prone to causing a Bad Hijab Day.* Teehee.

 GETS TO USE THE SAME WASHROOM AS Hiba Rajpar! Life's dream = accomplished. <3 2010 is GRRRREAT, yaar! 

Homework makes me sososo miserable. Severely depressed. Immensely sad. Very melancholic. 

Has jumped on the "3 Idiots" bandwagon! IT IS POSSIBLY THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER. I blubbered like a baby and laughed like an idiot. I was an idiot for not watching "3 Idiots" sooner. !!!!!! <3


 7-way phone convos can get confusing. But they're still pretty sexy. 

Fun day tomo: chemistry quiz (test), GIANT calculus test (which'll run into lunch, awesome), and then bio test. Block D will be my salvation!!!! AAAHHHHHHHH. Facebook, I rant to you. 

Is dangerously close to dropping AP Chemistry. Any objections? Speak now, or forever hold your piss--err, peace. (2 SPARES, THOUGH! I'LL HAVE TWO FREAKIN' SPARES! :D) 

is eating pitted olives atop a willow tree in the middle of may with the wind caressing and toying seductively with the fleece-and-vinyl-combo flap of my overcoat, thinking, almost as if insinuating feelings of nostalgia will increase serotonin production in my brain. 

Jew know how to do a Jewish accent? Kosh--err, it'd be real swell if you'd let me know.

IS EATING, BREATHING, SLEEPING, CHEMISTRY TONIGHT. Oh joy.

MY INDIAN CAMEL VOMITS. 

Studying for biology is, like, PAIN IN THE RECTUM. PRESSURE IN THE UTERUS and stuff. 

Just found the most HIDEOUS, sequined, vintage (circa 1980's), EXPLOSION of a dress on Etsy. I LOVE it! Potential prom dress? I THINK SO. 

Wearing sweatpants for about the first time. My legs feel as if they're coated with soft bunnies and cotton candy and 2-ply toilet paper and velvet and it's like there are angels synchronized swimming on them and...nuuuu. NOT IN PUBLIC, I will wear, I swear.


february 2010
Experienced a spare block for the first time today. I'll SPARE you the details, but it was pretty sensational. ~:] 

  itching to know if I'm right, left, or middle-brained. Can yooh help relieve this itch?

BABY ORANGES ARE MIGHTY DELICIOUS. I like peeling their layers. So vulnerable they are. Ouf, I'd appreciate if someone could teleport me some ice-cream, though. Craving like a mofo pregnant lady. 

♫So we made our own computer out of macaroni pieces...it counted up our feelings. And divided them up even. And it called that calculation perfect love. ♫ MY GOSH, REGINA SPEKTOR IS RAD-iculous.

Screw the Olympics, today was Value Village's 50% off sale! HOO BOY, the loot I scored. WHOA NELLY, the glee I felt. Rids thought it was ridiculous, I thought it was rad-iculous. (!!!)

No longer am I apathetic; I've hurdled on to the Olympics bandwagon! Free concerts, zip-lining, and fireworks--could get used to this. SHANE KOYCZAN=SO MARVELOUS; a man I've made awkward small talk with! 

Learning the FUN-damental Thereom of Calculus is anything but. Sheesh, I'm clever. 

 My cousin Sameer (bhai) won the Writer's Guild Award for Modern Family! HOWCOOLIZZAT? Yay, cuz, yay!

Ouf! Damn houdinis, it's 4 am. How'd that happen?


Is suffering from a severe case of Senioritis. It's a bit early, is it not?

YEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! CANAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADA!!!!!!!!

"It's like the Sisterhood of the Travelling AP Calculus Review Book!" Oh man-oh-man.

 Nanaimo bars are layers of heaven. On top of heaven. Wedged between some more heaven. {pros of life, #17847658} 

Is quite mentally exhausted. Ouf, academia. But mmm, MACademia nut cookies sound pretty scintillatingly orgasmic, atm. I also have a phalanx of words in my mind that need to be resonated onto my computer screen = a mild urge to blog. 

Oh how I love that it's spring break, so I can stay up till 3 AM to read fashion blogs without feeling (too) guilty. And also status update at 3 AM without feeling like I should be doing somethin' else. Basically, I love feeling that I'm not procrastinating, when in fact, I actually am. Dynamic. 

I feel excited about the future {inshallah}. 

TELL ME SOMETHING TO PERSUADE THE GENERAL PUBLIC ABOUT. By general public, I mean, my english teach. By perusade, I mean, vigorously shift stubbornly rooted paradigms. Pritt-uh please? 

"In your first year of university, you don’t know that you don’t know. In your second year, you know that you don’t know. In your third year, you don’t know that you know. In your fourth year, you know that you know." ...apparently. 

Is hitting up all the vintage, artsy-fartsy, second-handstores in Van tomorrow! This thrills me in a way a sexy apron never could. 

Holy smithereens! What a successful day of shopping--so much so that I'll never shop at a mall [scoff] again! And found a very potential grad dress [from the 6o's]--so much so, I put it on hold! 

 EMERGENCY: any spoken word topics y'all can suggest!? Writer's block to the MAX-eee-mum. D:<

Excited for SUYP'S UpRize @ Rhizome Cafe tonight! Performing a bit of spoken word, WHAT!

Wow, I'm amazing. After a 2 week hiatus from school, I still have [ALL] my homework to do. Amazing, I am, I tell ya, amazing. {It'snotmyfault.Ihadanextremelyrelaxing/nicespringbreakwhereIwasdoingartsyfartsythingsandIreallytrulyenjoyeddoingthoseartsyfartsythingsdammit!} 

 "I could've gone out and done something, but then I would have to socialize and pretend to be all happy and stuff." - Rida Jamal MY SISTER IS EMO; IT''S A PLAGUE, PEOPLE. A PANDEMIC, IF YOU WILL.

 I was told I was a "perfect example of a non-conformist", that I "wear awkard outfits" and that "it's cute how" I "have a high self-esteem". LOL! Aaaah, self-discovery. 

Operation-Get-Hot-Bod-'Fore-Grad-Or-Something-Remotely-Close is underway!

GREECE. Your blue oceans and aesthetically appealing [eye candy] landscapes are calling out to me. HOW FANTASTIC WOULD IT BE, TO ESCAPE AWAY TO THEE? 

I had a bean burrito today. Ouf, THAT'S why I keep passing gas. o_x


april 2010 
HEY POPINJAYS, I was just wondering, all RANDOMLY out of the blue and stuff, what do y'all think of the city of Montréal? Or perhaps I'm wondering because ...I. GOT. INTO. MCGILL. (!!!) (Alhamdullilah!) EEEEEEEK. **FUN FACT: SECOND MOST 'LIKED STATUS**


Well, vintage grad dress shopping today was supremely unsuccessful. My sister's solution? "Buy a quirky, mainstream one." "That's an oxymoron, moron", I said. Siiiiigh, what if I have to settle with a generic, mass-produced, conformist-type prom dress? D: //eats mango ice-cream to cope with this calamity. 

OH HEY NOW, just won a ticket to a Vancouver Fashion Week Event--for just posting a picture of one of my outfits! Sweet-diggity-dawg. 

I was talking to a Parisian lady today and said, "Je sais peu de francais", and she yelped and said, "Zat eez so sex-ay! Seerieessly, eef you talk like zat [accent] in France, all the boyz will fall deeply in love. Sex-ay!" DAY=MADE. 

I'M 93.25% SURE I'M NOT GOING INTO THE SCIENCES! This is liberation and freedom and un-imprisonment and un-oppression and sugar and spice and everything nice at its finest! 

You know what I want? A juicer. 


HOLY SCHNITZEL! I HAVE THE BEST FRIENDS EVER. best best best! BEST. 

Oh, wow. If I could redo grade 12, I would've taken Creative Writing instead of chem, Textiles instead of AP Chem, and thrown in some French for good measure. I totally, totally, totally, totally, totally, regret it [for a # of reasons].

"Seven days without laughter makes one weak." = this week's quota of paronomasia. 

Come see The Village of Idiots tomo, 7:30 pm! It'll probably do you some good to see me with heaving, superflous bosoms, unruly brows, and an exaggerated mole upon my upper lip. 

I BE STRESSIN' LIKE A MOFO. OMG, SO MANY THINGS TO DO I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START. SO MANY THINGS TO DO, SO MANY THINGS, AND I CAN'T NOT DO ANY! OR ELSE IT WILL BE BAD! VERY BAD! SO BAD! MY HEAD HURTS. OMG, HOMINA, HOMINA, BREATHE, BREATHE, OMFG. OMFG. OMFG. [these are not song lyrics. oh, how i wish they were]. 

"Sometimes we're intellectuals, sometimes we're crazy."


may 2010
I. SURVIVED. AP. CALCULUS. (!!!!!!) I HAVE LIVED TO TELL THE TALE. 

I. SURVIVED. AP. CHEMISTRY. (!!!!!!) I HAVE LIVED TO TELL THE TALE. [now, how does one proceed to take a grade off their transcript? hehehehe. HEH.] 

The Surrey Urban Youth Project's Freedom-a-nation: Different People, One Heart, One Beat shindig was super 'dope' tonight! THANKS Y'ALL! 

Goodness, the joys of finding foundation that MATCHES YOUR SKIN TONE EXACTLY. And yes, its true blogosphere--ack, fb friends, I do, in fact, HAVE MY GRAD DRESS! Revoltingly 80's-style, with COLOSSAL poufy sleeves. The color of teal play-doh.*the eighties be callin'; they want their dress back!* 

OMG, I WISH I WAS LIKE THE 224 KIDS AT MY SCHOOL WHO GET TO don a billowy, oversized blue and red gown; parade across a dimly-lit stage in scintillatingly sexy heels/sensible dress shoes; and recieve an artificial diploma today! Oh wait. {commencement, tonight!}

I FEEL LIKE GETTING DRESSED UP. I haven't in quite a while, ha. 'Con-graduations!' Class of 2010! Such an awesome weekend, a facebook status update simply cannot do justice. (!!!!)

went to Value Village's 50% off sale to cope with post-grad depression. It's a twelve step [twelve trip] program, so I'm getting there, guys! 

HOT DAMN, I LOVE MOONLIGHT. It's filtering in through my bedroom window's blinds right about now. Yummy. 

WANTED: suggestions from ex/university...people. WHAT ARE THE EASIEST FIRST-YEAR ARTS COURSES TO TAKE--easy enough to GUARANTEE a 3.5 to 4.0 GPA in first year? mucho gracias, bellissimas. ;) 

Oh crap, I just got into UBC sciences. Oh double crap, my parents just found out that I got into UBC sciences. Ewww, JEEPERS.

 Mmm, just made the yummiest mushroom avec les autre legumes imitation-risotto EVER. Ah, oui, j'adore les champignons! (why the burst of random french?)

is using a hammer as a back scratcher. It feels incredible. I'm NAILING the art of satisfying myself. ooo.

♫♪♫♪♫THAT MAYBE WHEN I DIE/ I GET TO BE A CAR/ DRIVING IN THE NIGHT/ LIGHTING UP THE DARK. ♪♫♪♫♪


 Today was yearbook-signing day. OH MON DIEU, my book was filled with so many grammatical erro--I mean, heartfelt, sentimental and otherwise syrupy-sweet passages! ;) 

My mom to my Dad: "You should eat celery! Or your weight (vait) will go up!" My dad: "You're the one eating up all my salary!" HAHA. MY DAD MADE A PUN. IN A LANGUAGE NOT NATIVE TO HIM. Applause? I think so! *applauds*  **FUN FACT: SECOND MOST 'LIKED STATUS**

10 LETTERS. 5 YEARS. 2 WORDS. 1 EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER. HIGH SCHOOL. And now it's over! Gasp. I AM SO LUCKY to have achieved that perfect ying-yang balance of being appreciative/grateful for all the memories/experiences/people I've encountered in the past five years (ahmd.) whilst being ABSOLUTELY ready for even more radical-ness and groovy up ahead (iA)! GRAD 2O1O, yeehaw!


IS DONE WITH MATH FOREVER... except to count up the money I WON'T be making with my Arts career, har dee har har.


Okay. Whoa.

Apparently I'm super bored or something because I READ EVERY ONE OF THOSE STATUS. Oh gosh, I really wish my facebook friends were even close to being as witty as you.

And your father's joke is actually really clever and hilarious hahaha. And oh my! I went to We Day too! Except we got the good ole Jonas Bros instead of the DALAI LAMA :/
