Just do it!

My friends and I were going to a coffee shop, as we do these days, and came across a chalk-wall. It was pretty cool! I honestly don’t think about what I want to do before I die.

But like everyone I do have so many things I want to do, I just don’t think about them so much that I would make a wall for it. For instance, I want to go on a girls-trip-multiple months in Europe back-packing vacation, I want to meet my best friend again, I want to walk across a city (a whole city), I want to make my own ice-cream, I want to graduate and settle down on the island, I want to raise my future kids hydrogenated-oil/processed-sugar/dairy/meat-free, and have them go to my dream schools, etc…

Some of the things on this wall are pretty humorous, and some are very sad and touching. Also, I am very tempted to call that number. In other news, I found out that my friend is to be engaged in less than a month. When I heard this, my heart dropped. I hate hearing it from other people. We used to be so close as you all know…and I was supposed to be the first to know. Also its not 2025 yet. I guess its just pay-back for when I got married without letting anyone know. Regret, all the time, contentment…I’m getting there. Thats what I have to keep telling myself. Well, I shouldn’t explain it here. I am not a good example for the young people here. Its whatever.

Some tips I can give to the youngsters, which I may have written in previous posts:

Kids, stay in school. Marry the love of your life. Stay grammatically correct, because uneducated beings are very unattractive. Stick to the conversation. The most unattractive man, is one who goes off topic and says irrelevant things. just to deem himself correct. I know. Its disgusting. Like really, YOU DON”T MAKE SENSE. YOU FOOL.

Follow these and it will make your goals “before you die” a little bit easier. Actually don’t listen to me, I don’t make sense. I disgust myself.

Me.

I don’t really introduce myself to people in real life. I am that person who would tell you who I am if you really asked, but if you didn’t I would be fine with not mentioning my name, where I’m from, etc… I don’t want you to think I am saying this to act ‘cool’ (idk why that is in air quotes), its just the way I am (also I’m not that cool). Its actually nice getting to know people and having people getting to know me. BuzzFeed already knows me, as they do everyone else on earth. Deny it if you will, but its some sort of statistical sorcery I tell you:

You guys probably know about how I escape this world accidentally and sometimes purposely. Its through my dreams or lucid dreams (I think I am capable of doing this…its pretty cool). The time I get the perfect dream is in the morning…I wake up at 7:30am when my alarm goes off, use the restroom, and then I go back to sleep because I love the escape. I feel so magical. I then sleep for 2.5hrs and experience the best scenarios, with the same characters or the ones that are obviously the only ones invited. I tweeted this morning right after I woke up from this awesome dream, as most of you DO NOT KNOW, since I only have a lousy 4 fake followers on Twitter, thank you very much (LOL. JK you can follow me if you want, but I am fine with the 4 trolls).

So that is two things about me I wanted to share with you guys today. NOT THAT IT MATTERS (its fun acting salty when you really aren’t. K bye.)

Hey, its a Tag post!

I wanted to do a tag post ’cause I felt like talking about myself. Not many people want to know stuff about me in real life now-a-days. Anyway, this is a random set of tag-questions I found:
Question 1: Do you have any pets ? Not at the moment. We used to have birds, which died. Then we had a cat; she ran away and got ran over. We used to have a dozen tiny fish, but someone fed them cheerios and they all died. I won a gold fish from a carnival, that gotten eaten by my brother’s larger gold fish. Then I colored a rock and that was my pet. I lost that too.
Question 2: Name three things that are physically close to you: Besides my laptop, I have my notes that I should be studying from, a couple of mugs, and a bunch of fun-size chocolate wrappers.
Question 3: What’s the weather like right now ? Its ok…sweater weather.
Questions 4: Do you drive ? If so, have you crashed? Nope, my permit even expired.
Question 5: What time did you wake up this morning ? I don’t remember.
Question 6: When was the last time you showered ? Yesterday
Question 7: What was the last movie that you saw ? Probably Paper Town…its overrated.
Question 8: What does your last text message say? “you would think they woulda read the previous emails first..ugh”
Question 9: What is your ringtone ? My phone is always on vibrate.
Question 10: Have you ever been to a different country? Just pakistan…layovers in turkey and somewhere else that doesn’t count. Blah
Question 11: Do you like sushi? No, the concept bothers me…raw meat is ew to me, also i don’t understand it…like wrapping rice around the meat/veg…why. Too much work and energy to look like a pretty princess. (no offense sushi lovers…you do you!)
Question 12: Where do you buy your groceries? I used to get them from pathmark or cvs in NY, now its always either Jewels, Target, or Traders Joe.
13: Have you ever taken any medication to help you fall asleep faster? Nah. I believe in imagining to free fall slowly into sleep.
Question 14: How many siblings do you have ? 4 and I love them so much!
Question 15: Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?  Laptop
Question 16: How old will you be turning on your next birthday? ….none of your business
Question 17: Do you wear contacts or glasses ? both
Question 18: Do you colour your hair ? no…notice the spelling in this question.
Question 19: Tell me something you are planing to do today: Prob study and stuff…I have an exam in the A.M.
Question 20: When was the last time you cried?  I don’t remember
Question 21: What is your perfect pizza topping? Bell peppers
Question 22: Which do you prefer, hamburger or cheeseburger ? neither
Question 23: Have you ever had an all-nighter ? all the time. They’re the worst.
Question 24: What is your eye colour ? Brown…I know..very hot.
Question 25: Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke? Not really.
I guess “that’s all folks”.

3:16am

A girl born and raised in the midst of the woods, lived in a cabin home with her parents and a two siblings. Through her life she experienced all sorts of mishaps…For example, no matter how well she took care of her teeth, something always went wrong with them. During adolescence, her eyesight gave her problems too. Her parents and older brother are not able to hear well at the moment either. That leaves the younger sister; she has a sore throat all the time, because she can’t control her craving of sour berries that she finds from the floor. A tragic life of a happy family. Please read on.

One day the girl’s family decided to have a picnic, well that is more like everyday when its not cold or raining ’cause they live in the woods duh. Anyway, this was one of those days, they were craving fish. So, being smart and innovative, they used a clean stick, which…they cleaned after finding it from the oh-so-nature-ish-surrounding. Near the waterbed or something like that, the girl’s younger sister sharpened a stone so that they can ‘hunt’ fish. The girl’s younger sister wasn’t forced to do this, well she kinda was ’cause she’s the youngest and in the woods the children aren’t so spoiled as you might have noticed elsewhere meaning everywhere else.

Spinach with chicken (salaan). Ha, can't make this in the woods.

Spinach with chicken (salaan). Ha, can’t make this in the woods.

The other family members would actually do other things, like make a list of the chores the one younger than them would have to do. Thats always fun (hehe). This was actually a clever system, what the folks who don’t live in the woods would call “check and balance”. This was a way for the younger ones to keep their cool. They would refrain from annoying or being mean to the older ones, ’cause they don’t want to have to do the worst of the worst chores. Ah, but then how would the eldest of them NOT be playing ‘Dictator’, you might wonder or not. The younger family members provide for them a ‘future’ and survival when the older ones are too cripple and always falling due to poor eyesight, which the girl from the beginning of the story has already begun to experience. So, in the end the system works out for everyone.

We find our family fishing in the woods near the waterbed (lol I have no idea if this happens. My geography and way with stuff associated with other stuff is not accurate, so…watevs). The girl pulls our her list of chores, made by her older brother. She kinda sees that she has to fish and then has to announce when dinner is ready. What an impossible task! For, now she has to struggle to see what-in-the-world-is-she-catching and then, after her little sister cooks the fish (’cause that is whats on her chore list), this girl has to also yell like a crazy when dinner is ready. She’ll have to yell because half of her family has poor hearing. The genetics in this family is just all messed up I tell you, and yet they happily deicide to reside in the woods, without any other human, because being different is cool.

They should leave right? But how…they can’t cause I said so. They don’t know where they are actually. When the two small children (who are the parents now) were younger they were dropped off in the woods (on opposite sides of the woods) by their parents way back whenever who cares (cause their parents, both couples, simultaneously dropped dead due to heart failure…all four of them…at the same time…bad genetics or high cholesterol…obesity…leave me alone). Both orphans waddled their way to the center, losing their way and sense of direction, and met. This is how the family came to be. They didn’t care what was out there…like other people and stuff. They were happy and smart…just not smart enough to figure out how to get out of the woods, cause they lost sense of direction remember. Also, they didn’t care. THE END.

The moral of the story is, be happy in any condition you are in. Say Alhumdulilah, Thank the Lord. Don’t try to spontaneously become an author, since you have trouble reading, lack patience, and can’t make sense of anything, direction included. This is why I don’t like to write fiction.

Peace out.

The Amazingly Edible-oh-I-can’t-get-enough Healthy Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies

I always trash talk my cooking and baking…Its not because I can’t cook/bake. Its mainly because I don’t like to when I make food or baked goods “healthy”, people in my home aka the family members, don’t eat the darn food. I usually don’t follow the instructions or the ingredient list for the matter of fact [haha ‘for the matter of fact” haha, I’ll use this in real life now]. But, this time, I did follow the directions…not so much the ingredient list. Its ’cause  I be cool like that. I fell short of the ingredients needed. Yea, so since I live in Chicago now, I was so confused on where everything was…so me being smart and stuff, I ‘thought’ we had all the ingredients, but we didn’t. Well, we kinda-sorta did have all the ingredients, but I guess i didn’t want to use them. Ok, fine, I actually was going to use them, but then while I was taking everything out to prep, I cringed and I tried to make it healthy…AND I DID. HA. 

Here’s the Original Recipe

“Chewy oatmeal cookies packed with walnuts and chocolate chips are easy to make, and your family will love the combination of flavors.”
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

This is how they came out after I switched up a few things: 

My midnight craving has begun. Great.

My midnight craving has begun. Great.

Looks great huh? Since I don’t usually take part in such activities like, baking or anything really haha, I had no idea what 1 cup of butter looked like…and found out its TWO STICKS. Yea so, I replaced it with 1 stick and 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt. Instead of using 3 cups of ALL-PURPOSE-BAD-FOR-YOU-FLOUR, I used 3 cups of White Whole Wheat Flour. SCORE. I used parchment paper so I don’t add excess oil/greasy to the cookies; its also easier afterwards to just pick up the whole sheet of paper and lay it onto the cooling rack instead of individually trying to transfer them. Yea, I’m lazy, but smart. Maybe. Oh, the instructions say to have them in the oven for 12 mins, but since I replaced some things, I had them in there for 14-Perfect-mins.  You can refrigerate the batter unless you plan on making all of them at the same time. WARNING: don’t make them all at once, cause ‘even a lot of a good thing is bad for you’ blah blah blah, unless you have a lot of people coming over, then its fine. You won’t be able to resist just two. Thats, why I made 12 at a time for three days, cause my family and myself included, don’t have self control over good food, even though this recipe was HEALTHY. Oh, and I did everything by hand [haha i read this over, I mean not really stirring with my hands, I used a spoon and a fork lol…but, no mixer or whisk. Yea, this is embarrassing, but I couldn’t find those things, not even the measuring spoons. I used a normal dessert spoon for the normal-person-baking teaspoon and a normal cereal spoon for a normal tablespoon. I only found the measuring cups.

Ok, Happy eating, or bingeing on these cookies, ’cause you’re too cool for my warning.

Peace!

 

Ignore the fortune.

Hello,

   I’d like to write a serious normal post for you all…or even for myself. The time is exactly 1:41am here in New York [as I typed the time atleast]. I have been a-not-so-motivated-person for the beginning of this summer break that has been granted to me, Alhumdulilah. However, yesterday I did try, mind you. I went to sleep early; in our home this means around 11:30pm. I did fall asleep, which didn’t make sense, since I woke up super late that day. The next morning I woke up at 5:15am. It was an accomplishment, but then I wanted to sleep for a bit more, because my darn ego wasn’t very satisfied. I layed there for a good three hours (I think), and fell asleep. But, lo-behold [is this right?], woke up around-um-idk- 12pm. And then, fell asleep at 8pm, woke up at 10:30pm. OMG. What’s wrong with me. Ugh I hate this. Urg… Dang, pardon my rage.

A poem

So a post, I have finally typed.
For this late I’m fairly hyped.
My mind likes to wonder.
Stories of the past, it ponders
It hurts, but then it doesn’t.
It can if I let it, but it mustn’t.
A fortune cookie once read,
‘Not to analyze the tales all dead’.
I laughed and just ate the cookie.
That was me ‘before’. A rookie.
Well, why should I turn my head,
For every moment, I certainly do not dread.
They make me who I am.
And as for analyzing every bit of time…
I shall keep doing so. It is that sublime.
-Eva626

Well, that took a whole other turn. Lol. It kinda does tie into this post…especially the beginning. I think. See, still not gonna stop analyzing. Dumb fortune cookie. I wish I had one right now.

Oh, a treat for you all.

Yum.
Peace out.
