my freinds threw me a surprise party and then 2 of them came and picked me up from college, blindfolded me and took me god knows WHERE in the car...then finally down these unfamiliar spiral stairs with painted railings into a basement....when they removed the blindfold (sanno's chunri dupatta) i saw lots of faces screaming SURPRISE in the dark and had confetti and that can spray stuff and what not thrown around at me!! it was AMAZINGGG! i was so shocked...and happpyy :) they made it the best bday ever...they had decorated the place up with pink balloons hanging gilttery things and what not..had yum foood and 3 cakes!! which they baked themselves that afternoon...:D....and tons of presents too...which i havent opened yet!!!:(
then we went to cucoos for dinner....on the chatt with the amazing view of the Badshahi mosque..with the cool wind and dim lights :) then spent the night at shahs place and talked till early morning....then ended up back here to attend my classes :S
it was the best way to turn 20...and the best part it theyde been conspirinhg for ages and i didnt have a clue....maximum i thought theyde show up at my place and do somthing there...but this was SO much better! thanks Shah, Khan, Zehra, Sanaa, Sanno,Mina :)

Bday Girl

Im 20 today, technically not quite yet...because i was born in the evening :)
anyway, i was so sleepy last night that i couldnt attend to ANY midnight phonecalls! socho, when i woke up i had my phone in my hand,and in spite of vibrate being on i was oblivious to the world :P hehe i had 19 bday smses and 6 or 7 missed calls :) yippee!
oooh and i also had a page and a half of orkut bday scraps! i think this is the first time SO many people have wished me :)
im 20.
it doesnt feel weird though, thankfully, apparently people feel all depressed and OLD....:) well i guess the fact that most people think im 15 is a good enough compensation ;)
*scooby laugh*
oh, and ive already gotten my first birthday present, this really pretty pendant with Allah and the kalma on it...its circular and silver, realllllyy nice i love it. im wearing it right now too :)

Winter Quarter

New Quarter....and so much for setting high standards of getting no more C's....im taking Arabic 2! haha...ana uktub wa iqra allughat ul arabia alaan - i read and write arabic now :) (a bit)...its fun showing off...and no one gets it so mwahaha ;) even better.
khair,the weather is pretty deceptive...its cold in the morning so you bundle up in warmies when u leave home...by afternoon youre feeling HOT and the heated classes make you feel sick :S
but i prefer it this way, i dont particularly like FREEZING cold winters either...
haha, acha enough of the complaining...i have to make a painting for a freind of mine whos graduating from Univ. in 2 days! i dnt think ill get to see him after that for a LONG time or ever...buying presents for people is the hardest thing..specially for guys...what do you get them...a football? and for my brother, i just get him music CDs and movies...or treat him to food..works well that way :)
its fun when you find the perfect present for someone and then see their reaction :) Recently, i found these Star Wars books with glossy pages and amazing illustrations etc, and i got them for this BIG Star Wars fan friend of mine...he was happy :) ( i hope, or he pretended really well :P)
:)
which reminds me, MY birthday is coming up ;) *hint hint*
ide like to think im not materialistic and bhooki for presents, like i used to be as a kid *blush*
