I have a fucking fever, and swollen lymph nodes.

Neck is sore.

Body is hot.

Air conditioner (or is it just me?) is on cold.

I'm sleepy.

Head is throbbing.

Swallowing hurts.

Summer 2011 Reading List

The Love Letter Cathleen Schine 7/10

This book had a captivating start, slow middle, and a suspenseful last chapters. I was forcing myself to get through the book but I couldn't tear myself away from finding out what happens in the end. I loved all the charm each character had, how Helen had thought behind her actions thus allowing me to understand her motives, and the youth of Johnny. Emily was sweet, though not a huge character, and Lilian and Elenor (her mother and Grandmother) was dull and irrelevant till the last chapters. I recommended this book because you learn a few things about curiosities of love without age, and love of poetry.

The wording and grammar style bothered me till I got immuned to it in the middle. I admit, I skipped a few pages and just skimmed it because it was totally irrelevant.

The love and passion between Johnny and Helen was so raw and pure. He was completely engulfed in her and as much as Helen tried to deny it, she fell deep for him. The aggression, the passion, and the vulgarity was pretty intense. Overall, I'm glad I read it, and I will probably ponder it for a while.

Post Graduation

I achieved it!! I felt it! I was... moved!

I got that shiny piece of paper declaring my end of high school. It was magical. So here's the timeline of it all:

9:25am: decide to get out of bed

9:45am: Sulayman comes to my door, though I was texting his sister about ride arrangements, and asked me in his loud manly voice if I wanted to ride with him. Excuse, my dad is upstairs. I was gonna go with my family (and Nour) around 1:30pm and have then enjoy waiting an hour and a half. But after I explained this to my parents, they decided to let me go with him.

11am: Nour finally arrives. I taught her how to walk in heels! She ended up hating them afterwards though. And she started to get ready about an hour before me! I'm just sitting there on twitter and she's panicking over her nails!

12:30pm: Nour gets a call from her mom saying how she has a book fine. Minutes of echoing screams in Arabic, she got this situation fixed. You see, we don't get our diplomas if we have a book fine. Well this fine wasn't supposed to be for a book since she turned hers in, but rather a calculator. Problem: fixed!

1:30pm: As agreed, I left to meet Sulayman at his house, and get a ride. So I got my dad to drive me 10 seconds there (excuse me, swear and heels? No.). Well, he's not even home. So I'm sitting in Aisha's room watching her get ready, when he comes around 1:40pm. Okay, no problem, but he decided to shave... wearing his white shirt. Blood. On the shirt. Panicky mom. Mind you we have to be there by 2, and guess when we left? 2. As we left, he said we'd be there by 2:20, he promised. As we passed my house, I saw my family entering the car -_- On top of that, he's a crazy driver! Stickshift, at 80 mph average. We almost crashed too, lovely. Finally we pulled into the parking lot and parked at.. 2:20pm exactly.

3pm: After finally finding my place and calming down, we started! It was beautiful. The anthem was done beautiful! The speeches didn't even fail to have the funny personalities we usual have. Thilman (principal) even added to add the staff now on twitter! Kylie introduced Safiyah (valedictorian) and she was crying by the end! Safiyah's speech also was the most amazing. She quoted "Fireworks" by Katy Perry, and talked about how people don't get her name right. But all in all, inspirational! Then, we walked the stage. It was nerve racking. Remember that "Don't clap till the end" rule? Yea, after 1/4 of the class got their diplomas, the rule was instantly dropped! Thank god I'm the first ten! My name was pronounced it's correct way, part of my mission to go by it more! And walking off, I almost tripped. Classy. Dad and Iman both have a video.

4:30pm: I got my diploma, and took a lot of pictures. Dad hugged me hard, quite emotional. MY MOM SAID HI TO MARIO! Yea, Nour did not really tell him she was coming. I met his mom, so pretty! Dad turned around and patted his chest before saying congrats with a handshake and Mario looked so scared (I was told). I'm not surprised, he's afraid of my dad! My family also met Yodit! MARCELL HUGGED ME IN FRONT OF MY DAD! Yea, please, don't ever do that! We left and Nour got to stay the whole ceremony, and her dad picked her up at the parking lot. Which sucked because of the backed up cars.

6pm: GOLDEN CORRAL! It was delicious. I had 4 plates. And I ran into kenyan Philip too!

9pm: Couldn't breathe or move due to the excessive food intake. Purge.

10pm: Arabic! I've improved!

All in all, FANTASTIC day! I got a phone call from Aunt Katro as well! I don't need presents and overwhelming glory. I'm glad I achieved what I got today. And with that, good night!

Pre Graduation

I graduate in about 14 hours.

Tommorow shall be a little hectic. Nour is suppose to arrive at 10:30am, then around 1pm I would like us all to leave for the Raleigh Convention Center, and we walk at 3pm, Nour leaves by 5, and my fam goes out to dinner. :)

I had this original plan to have Nour over at 9ish, go to my whole graduation, dinner after, then go back to her house to sleep over and attend her graduation that night.

But she decided to pick up another shift.

So now the plan is for her to be here at 10:30am, get to the center around 1pm, and she leaves early around 5 to get to work at 5:30. No sleepover. I get to her house around 4, her full grad starts at 6, leave around 8 or 9.

The original plan seemed so sweet and prefect way for best friends to end their graduations together but mistakenly I forgot, graduation is not Nours thing.

I've been feeling so unenthusiastic about graduation because of 1) I'm not into my highschool since I transferred midway, 2) I am the first to graduate k-12 then university right after in my family in the States, and 3) I'm not expecting anything big. Most kids get cars or new smart phones. I bet a gift card or that party in two weeks will be my present. My aunt is supposed to get me a laptop but I think she can't now that she's marrying David and has to cut things tight with her weren't budget.

Therefore, as big as I would like my graduation to be, it might not.

So after talking on the phone to 4 people this is what I learned:

Nour: graduation shouldn't be all that big of a deal. You're done with school, that feeling came and left on your last day of school. This is redundant.

Alex: Recollect memories and you'll realize how much you've grown and experienced thereby making graduation a little bit more heartfelt.

Ibrahim: I need to say screw it to graduation and hook up with him before he leaves. He likes my lips and boobs > my personality and mind. I'm glad I don't have to see him for forty days.

Ahmed: Crazy guy who lives far far away and surprisingly remembers my graduation was tomorrow. How sweet!

I think I'll leave the rest of my emotions to flow in their way..


I found out last week, guess I'm late in reporting but...

I PASSSED AFM!!!!!!!!!!

Yes yes, with a D. My exam I though I "did so well" in, yea I got a 60%!! Fuck me over!

But it's okay because that meant I got a 69.8% final grade, rounded to a 70% making it.. A D!!!

Uncg, I'm on my way!

Today I had a hookup.

This is not for bragging purposes or such. Just documenting to remember 20 years from now.
Could result in a weak stomach.

Today I had a date/hookup with Ibrahim. He's a soccer player with a nice body, but he's also very smart!

Anyways, almost 8 mos of on and off flirting we decided to hookup and today it happened! He took me to yopop, a Chinese frozen yogurt Place similar to Pink near my house, I drove. And paid for myself.

Then back to my car to mess around. Details written down make me feel awkward but basically he's aggressive, persistent, fast, and his pen0r could rip me in half. However I did make him cum with out taking my clothes off. That's a personal achievement.

Then he had the decency to wall post a very beautiful girl he met once while he was with me asking to hang out soon. Please, you're still horny aren't you?

He constantly complains about how some girls think he's a player. I'm just like


But I went to Nours house after and watched Arab stand up comedy. That was hilarious!

Last Day of High School

Today was my last day of stepping foot on Cary High property for the sake of being called a student!

I had a math exam today. Here's the story behind math right now. I made an F last quarter(68.3%) and a D this quarter (76%). On the exam I had to get atleast a 70% if I calculated correctly to pass the class. Why is passing the class so important? It's my last credit I need to go to UNCG! Also, even if it wasn't, it would help to not get my acceptance letter revoked!

My exam went really well I believe. I knew most of the formulas and stuff so it was cool until the end when I realized I just looked over the last units rather than the intense I did the rest. So I skipped two and winged it. I want to say I may have gotten a 80% but I'm gonna just go for passing!

Then I got an approval to not come to the Monday exam review for an exam I'm not taking. So I am never stepping foot on Cary as a student!

Then finished off with yearbook signing and cheezeits with frosting :)

I really hope I pass. I've worked hard and HE EVEN COMPLIMENTED ME FOR IMPROVEMENT! Hopefully he isn't so anal.

I find out tomorrow afternoon :x
