Chicago

OK. I am in Chicago, IL and will have to call this “home” for a few years. Hopefully everything goes smoothly. Its not really like New York…I miss my real home. And I miss my family. I do Skype and talk on the phone with my family everyday, multiple times a day. And I miss everything. Anyway, my roommate is pretty chill…she’s so much like my sister, which is weird ’cause I used to share a room with my sister back in NY. She also has the same habits as my sister, except she doesn’t mind me as her roommate [LOL]. Its so cold here! Whoever said “windy city” was right. blah.

The thing I don’t like about where I am at, besides not being in NY, is that the only CVS I have seen is so far away. And whats up with “target”. No competition. And where in the Chicago is Pathmark at. ugh.

Oh the public transportation in Chicago is horrible not as convenient or efficient as in NewYork. Of course. My roommate had to go somewhere to meet up with her family the other day and she had such a hard time. She first walked so far, i forget where, but then she had to take a cab. The cab broke down [HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN!?]. Then she got to the train station and she missed the train…and had to check after two hours to see when the next one would come. idk. Maybe its her luck hahaha. I’m so mean.

Stuff right before moving to Chicago. Memories.

Stuff right before moving to Chicago. Memories. I learned to use the ‘photogrid’ app. So cool right.

Btw, Eid Mubarak to everyone [I’m not slow, just been occupied, kinda]. Thats my foot; I attempted to put on Henna on, but unfortunately it was expired [fail]. That popcorn got burnt [this was in karachi]. Thats the Eid gift I got for my sister, its wrapped in the only wrapping paper I could find. That yellow outfit was what I wore on one of the last days of Ramadan…and the color started leaking on to my skin. I still miss NY.

OH and whoever asked me that question on ask.fm about my triple major…I want to know what you people think they are. So comment, dang it.

Peace out. #TeamNY For LIFE. -eva626

How to stay wake during class.

So, life is tough as always and its getting harder for me. I should really be prepping for Finals right now, but you know us bloggers…we I don’t manage my time the way I should. I am trying to change that. I know, writing this post isn’t helping. Anyway, I wanted to share my experience and what I have learned in the so many years of schooling: The technique on how to stay awake during class.

-Write an outline for a blog post to keep your mind active.

Here is a picture of what my home-made pizza looks like:

Good stuff.

Good stuff.

-Observe other people in the class. Make sure not to be that obvious…it will send wrong signals.

-Occupy yourself on your laptop or phone, with internet access to distract yourself from getting heavy eye-d, because nothing wastes more time than social networks or computer/phone games [if your into that stuff]

-Take notes during lecture. LOL

-Play a symphony in your head of your professor’s accent.

-Jot down the teacher’s jokes to tweet them later.

-Follow along with the lecture in your text book. Worst method ever. You will pass out.

 

Or you can just give in to your narcolepsy, like I do and wait till someone wakes you up at the end.

Expectations

Many people have a certain image or thought of others. Most good images created for loved ones or once loved ones, disappear due to broken expectations. People are people. They will live for themselves (most of the time). The best way to avoid disappointment is by not expecting much from these people. Sure, you can live a lie for a good amount of your life with the illusion of that-someone to be a certain way. Its actually false advertisement that you purchase yourself. Then once the bag is opened and you find what you were not expecting, actually the opposite of the ‘thought’ that you had created for this person, your whole world falls. Then, you must get up and face the fact that you have to stop expecting certain things from people. All in all, you learn from your mistakes. The best way to avoid such harm is to focus on yourself and not on the one sided thought that you have of others.
