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

I am…

So, today I feel like writing about my day. It was fine. LOL. Moving on… I had class today and the second half of class, two of my classmates had to do their oral presentations. Mine is in the middle of April…blah. Anyway, during their presentation I started to doodle, just so I don’t doze off [read: “How to stay awake during class“]. I noticed that my drawings are mesmerizing. This got me thinking; I am probably not so “Talentless” after all. I mean there are so many things, I think, I am good at, or at least feel I have the confidence to be good at…if that makes any sense. Because, I am Batman [I want a Bruce Wayne or want to be a Bruce Wayne]. I felt like saying that, since he is good at mostly everything…I don’t know why. Anyway, here’s a list!

What makes me similar to Bruce Wayne, the “best-fictional-character”:

I do have a few enemies..actually I don't think I do.

I have a few enemies..actually I don’t think I do.

-I am a blogger, anonymous for the most part, like Batman.

-I like to help people…even though I don’t help most of the time LOL…meaning I want to help people, like Bruce Wayne.

-The looks…lets not get into this. [Lower your gaze people; lol joking, I don’t know about my looks actually].

-The butler…I need an Alfred. For real.

-I don’t got the money, technology, or much of the brains that he has…but everyone can dream. One day!

Eh…seems like I am not really like Mr.Wayne after all. Whatevs. Btw, who watches “Young Justice”?

This post was such a FAIL.

Gender Hormones

“Lustfully pleasing to the eyes, and burning up the desires within the animal inside” -eva626 . It has been so many years since my teenage years. Those are the worst [at least for the philosophical people], I think all of you might agree. The worst part for me, was that while everyone had a change/developed in height, biological features, mood swings, attitude problems…I was the frightened kid in the center of everyone’s mess: called puberty. With such a great power comes responsibly. LOL. I was a late bloomer, if thats what people call it. Anyway, living in the ‘west’, you experience so much that might shock the living daylights out of your brown parents. The thing is, the ‘western’ thinking is to adapt to these changes and use them to your full potential. I do not agree with this. Why would you want to expose yourself to impress the other gender…People like to sacrifice self worth for so called ‘liberation’, which in reality is merely an attempt to get molested, if you think about it. I may sound rude to people who live their life the western way (obviously), but you really shouldn’t think that if everyone is doing something its right. Lets get into the “freedom” thought that most teenagers, even in other countries have adapted to…

Ok, so girls statically and biologically will hit puberty earlier than males. So they start getting all these things in their head like, “I need those baby clothes to wear to school!” or “I HAVE to go out with my so-called-puny-friends-who-have-surpassed-the-need-to-follow-rules-of-people-called-their-parents”, and the very famous one “I need my privacy”. Girls are annoying when it comes to the duration of maturing…this is the stage where they are the most IMmature. Urg. I cant believe I was once like this..thank God it only lasted two years for me. The transition is a nightmare…believe me. I wished I never came out of my room and just sat there watching saturday morning cartoons and reruns on the other days for those two years. Another thing is that while these ‘growing girls’ [LOL this makes them sound like Giants] were developing this mindset, thanks to the media and irresponsible parents, they were also waiting for boys to ‘notice’ them. {puke and cooties}

Here’s something far more appealing than the other gender:

Once boys reach puberty, bad things happen! Being a part of the science part of academia (its not a big deal, I’m just a suffering student, I know, you didnt care anyway) males will only and only think about females. Happy birthday Human nature. That is why there are certain limits these changing creatures (ones going through puberty) have to learn about. Limits to control your desires, what you look at, what you let others see, what you read/watch/do/think about; kids have to be taught what is more important, life or Gender Hormones.

Its critical to talk to your kids, siblings, anyone who is cant seem to control their hormones. You have to let them know that they are wasting their time and energy…and actions come with a price, consequences. Dating or stalking the other gender because you just have urges and attraction towards, doesn’t suffice. What is dating…its an excuse that people these days make to try to get to know/touch/etc… the other person. BAD THINGS HAPPEN! Most of the time, the girl gives in because her initiative, subconsciously speaking, is marriage. The guy, wants to date because his urges are satisfied that way, one way or another, commitment does not come to mind, because males live in the present most of the time. Pre-martial relationships are NOT the real deal. Why do you want to ‘try’ out something you might not be committed to. Because its fun, bad experiences make good stories, and you will hurt one another’s feelings, leave a scar on them so they suffer their whole life. Congratulations.

The way to control this problem…To Be Continued.

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.

Feminism…ok, just shut up.

Not all females are feminists. I mean what is feminism anyway? Flinging your headscarfs out the window or worse…other things as was done in the 1960s in America. That is not feminism…sorry to burst your tiny bubble, but getting rid of pieces of clothing from your body only shows how dumb you are. You don’t respect yourself, how will this make others respect you? I mean come on, you are climbing back the “evolutionary” ladder…animals are unclothed, not humans. Clothes are made to cover us and protect our body parts, not show them off. Ew thats disgusting…ok I am done talking almost naked people.

Just know this, modesty = feminism. With modesty comes pulling out of current social pressures, for example Barbie. Hopefully now you understand. What if you WANT to show off to people, just so they can judge you even more…thats your problem. Good luck with living your life based on what others “impose” on you. There is more to life then just people (of course you are supposed to care about people, their feelings, possessions, ideas, thoughts, humanity, etc… but I mean about what people think about YOU in particular). Everyone is supposed to respect one another…its ethics and morals, no matter what religion or ideas you follow. Ok back to ‘feminism’.

I don’t believe in the type of Feminism that most people think about when they think of this term. They think its about Females ruling the world (that said, what makes this right and then what makes Men ruling the world wrong?…you want to dominate over the other gender…is that it?) This doesn’t make sense to me (not that it matters lol). I think that males and females have to work together in this world for the sake of humanity…even though today’s era is somewhat lost on common sense.

Honestly speaking, the most rights of women I have learned, read about, and am trying to follow is in Islam. Females were given the right to inheritance, work for their own satisfaction and self, vote, counted in socitey more than 1400 years ago by way of Islam. That is way before the US or anyother country or group sought existance of them. If you haven’t seen the video I shared in one of my posts, please do so, there is a segment where it touches the questions of rights of females in it. Females have been honored so much in Islam. This post can go on and on about this topic but I will cut it short and leave you with this picture below. Hopefully it will clear some misconceptions that society has fogged up and hid from your innocent minds:
