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

Grownup

HAHAHAHAH {maniac laugh…ha ha, fooled you all}. I’m a child, still. I know what you are thinking, well you most probably aren’t thinking this but watevs:

Things that Should make me a grownup…ONLY should. However, these points don’t prove anything:

1) I try to use correct grammar and spelling. This is unlike most of the immature beings that learned to use the internet way too soon.

2) I graduated college. Yes, I did. It happened a few months ago. I’m still a baby, OK.

My up-to date FaceBook picture...Its so funny, isnt it?

3) I have earned three degrees. That sentence was just me showing off a little. See…childish.

4) The understanding of why people do certain things and what they are thinking. This only proves I’m psychic. Nothing more.

5) I can give you a lecture on most things ‘nerd’ and ‘biological/chemical science’ based, to ‘parenting tips’ and ‘how not to look like a cross-dresser’.

6) Oh, I am moving to Chicago. {just a random thing most people do…move to a different place for so and so reason…ok fine, its for studies}.

7) I can rap…But, who can’t right?

Fine, I can't rap.  Follow me on twitter @Eva626_blogger

There you have it…I’m still not grown up. This post is dedicated to my sister. I have been thinking about what to write for a while. Its been about 20 days since my last post. LOL Sorry about that. I was too lazy to take my laptop out of the closet and my phone is either too small or I have big fingers to type a whole post. BTW the WordPress app for android is great now…I get the notifications on everything. It makes me happy. Anyway, many one or two people wanted to know more about me…so here you have it.

If you missed the point of this post: I am not an Adult or a Grownup {as my sister would argue, only because of my age}. I sure told her.

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.

Ask, Learn, Listen, explore.

So, I am sure everyone knows that I am big on spreading knowledge and minimizing confusion. Please watch the video below…it helped me so much.

Peace!

You had to leave

Classes started a couple of days ago. Summer is gone and I am sad about that! Ramadan and Eid flew by…Note: when time flies, you know Judgement Day is near. My siblings are growing up so fast. They are all leaving for college and will be busy with new schedules. Now me and my baby-14-year-old-brother will see eachother’s faces without interruption. I am fine with that but he finds me quite annoying haha [no worries, kido…we both have school in the day].

I AM SO SAD. I guess we all just have to realize that the moments we have right now are the most precious and we should make the best of them. I did say I was going to expose my summer doings [sounds sinful huh] when it ends…although I was not prepared to do it so soon. Oh well. Lets read the list:

1- I did not learn to drive. FAIL

2- I learned to bake! Well, it was more like following instructions from online recipes lol.

3- I helped plant stuff…which grew into eggplants, cucumbers, flowers, peas, spinach, mint, and basil. God’s blessings.

We also had our own ‘manual’ bbq. Delish!

4- Ramadan happened and I loved it.

5- ‘Met’ some interesting people on twitter and wordpress. Great learning experience.

6- I got a new phone. Unexpected. Bad timing, because I just got it a couple of days ago and its extending my summer mentality [this is bad since classes this semester are already so rough].

7- I started making video diaries for my siblings who would miss out on our daily boring lives at home. This has nothing to do with what happened to me during the summer, but who cares [also, it doesnt make sense ’cause the house is not as full as it used to be since its mainly the parents, me and the young’in [LOL at the word ‘young’in]].

I probably did more things, but cant think of them. Dang it, I have class in the mornings…its 2 am and I am still awake eating Eggos. Yea, this post is full of nonsensical events. I am done.
