Hi everybody. Today's my birthday! It is my 5th birthday, but I am turning 20 years old. I'm no longer a teenager; I'm a big girl now. I share a birthday with Antonio Sebato, Jr. (yum!) and Dennis Farina (yuk!). Nothing like a leap year birthday to make you think that God set aside a special day just for you to be born (as if that didn't sound egotistical). I celebrated with my family today by going to lunch at my favorite restaurant: Macaroni Grill. I know you're thinking, how can a chain restaurant be her favorite? Well the waiter we always have is a really nice Iranian guy, and he always makes sure everything is perfect for us at the table and in the kitchen. He makes it a special experience everytime we go and even sent us a slice of chocolate cake home for my birthday. Now I'm gearing up for Oscar watching and rooting for Shohreh Aghdashloo, the first Iranian ever nominated for an Oscar. This is such an exciting day!

Ok ok, really, happy birthday, I always wanted to have a leap year birthday,.

Today was another threading day. I feel so clean after doing it, and it's a real confidence booster. I found out today that a bunch of my friends from school where 5 min. away from my house last night. This has left me with a huge feeling of regret that I did not ask before which restaurant they were going to. If I had asked that, I would have known they were going to be near me and we could have hung out. It's not easy to get together with my school friends because we all live so far apart from each other. And I was actually free last night; I had nothing to do! OK, I really need to stop kicking myself, but I know I would have had a blast. I guess the moral of this story is to be more nosy. :D I'm hoping another chance will come along; we'll see. I found out I got a 65 on the O Chem test. I'm really thinking of dropping this class and taking it at a community college. I don't need it for my major so I can take it anywhere. This totally bites. I missed a fun night and found out I'm stupid all in one day. Plus today's my last day as a teenager; tomorrow I turn 20. I guess the high-point of today was getting some baklava and a keyring with the Turkish evil eye (don't worry, Will, I'll show it to you). I'm heading to my regular mosque tonight; let the good times roll.
I went to The Cheesecake Factory today for lunch with a couple friends. It was sort of a mini-birthday party since my birthday's on Sunday. I was surprised when one of them handed me a card that had been signed my them as well as some other of my friends. It was so sweet of them. I really do have awesome friends. I really feel that I can trust them and that they'll care about me no matter what. While I was there I took some pictures with my phone. I went ahead and inputted the girls' email addresses so that I could send the pictures to them while we were still in the restaurant. Once I did that, I got picture phone crazy and started uploading a whole bunch of pictures. I then logged onto the Sprint PCS website and organized my pictures into albums and started emailing them all over the place. It was great because now I can take all the pictures I want without filling up my phone's memory as long as I upload them. And I can still see them on my phone when they're uploaded, so I can still retain portability. If any of y'all want me to email you some pictures, just let me know. It's so easy, and I can even send it to your cell phone. Whoever thought of this camera-in-the-phone thing was a genius!

My sister and I originally came up with "prizoner of science" when we were watching Nick and Jessica guest star on SNL. There was a skit involving a Mexican restaurant that doubled as a school for the performing arts, essentially the waiters were all singers paradying famous songs. Horatio Sanz comes out at one point and sings, "Do we have problem? I'm the manager. Prisoner of science. Science!" It's the funniest part of the movie. So we run around saying that to each other whenever there's awkward silence in the room as a sort of family joke. Little did I know that I misheard the lyrics. The name of the song is not "Prisoner of Science," but is in fact "She Blinded Me with Science" by Thomas Dolby. I like my made up lyrics better, but that's the origin of this now notorious name.

Hi everybody (Hi prettydoc!)...sorry, I've just always wanted to be Dr. Nick Riviera. Anywho, today was a long day which I blame on the 1/2 hr longer than class is scheduled O Chem lab today. We were doing Diels Alder Reactions: great on paper, SOBs in real life. Plus I burnt my finger on the MelTemp apparatus. Curse you and your hot metal! Well, before lab I was sitting with some commuter homies, and I realized something. See, they were talking about something that I can't relate to due to lack of experience of any kind: sex. Specifically, that as part of a relationship. It's strange how something like that can make you feel like sort of an outsider. I mean, I am in that regard. But it isn't just that I lack experience, it's that my view of it and its place in relationships is completely different from theirs. I'm not saying either view is better or worse than another; they're just different. Now I know that if I were to have made a contribution on the matter, which I didn't, there would not have been much for me to say. I would have just said, "What till you're married," and sounded like a prude or their mom. That's the last thing I want to sound like. I want to relate to my peers, but sometimes it just seems like we can be so different. I really do embrace differences. Maybe I'm not making any sense; in order to do that I may have to say the whole conversation, and I'm not going to do that. I've been in positions where I've alienated people because of this, and I don't want that to happen. But I'm not gonna pretend I know anything about it because I don't. Something tells me I should just keep my mouth shut. I was doing a really good job of that until it got to a topic where I thought I could relate and then I tried and realized I misunderstood and looked like a bigot or something and...oh to hell with it all! Who cares? Y'all probably already think I'm preachy enough as it is.

On : 2/27/2004 3:52:35 PM Jenny (www) said:

hmmm. I know exactly how you feel Maryam. Life blows immsely when you aren't able to join in common everyday conversations. Sadly sex is a topic that comes up all to frequently and, like youself, having no experience per se i cannot join in and feel left out. I do agree that sex is something that should go on primarily between married couples, but i also know i do not want to be the fool not having a clue on my wedding night... sigh. But then again, lack of prospects makes this and even sharper reality.. double sigh.

On : 2/27/2004 4:08:46 PM prettydoc (www) said:

Plus when you tell people how you feel about, their reaction is as if you're an alien or something. They act like it's not a viable alternative to wait until you're married. It's not a crazy new-fangled idea. That's why I just try and stay out of it.

On : 2/27/2004 5:27:42 PM diego (www) said:

here's my 2 cents worth on this subject. ok, i'll admit it, i'm a virgin. and i plan on it staying that way till i'm married. other than my religious beliefs, i don't really have anything impeding me from having sex b/f that time...i guess waiting is just something i've always thought of as normal. don't feel bad if other people have a lot more experience than you - everything has its time and place. there's no use in rushing into something. besides, i can't really see the pleasure in having sex w/ someone you just met at a club or bar or something like that. that's just the act of sex for the sake of the act - it doesn't mean anything. sex should be so more than just that.

oh and on the comment jenny made about not having a clue on your wedding night - if the person you marry truly loves you and isn't a virgin (and i hope they truly love you, cuz otherwise what's the point of getting married) then they'll be understanding and guide you through. that's another thing - if both partners aren't enjoying it, then you probably shouldn't be engaing in it.

end or rant.

On : 2/27/2004 5:49:03 PM prettydoc (www) said:

Plus, if you're both virgins, it will be the best sex you've ever had!

Tonight was the first time I had been to a real mosque in a while. The one I usually go to is not a really a mosque; it's an Islamic center. The biggest difference is that women don't have to wear scarves, and men and women are not separated. Of course, tonight I was at a real mosque so I had to abide by the real traditions. This required trying on lots of clothes until I found the one that was most conservative, meaning it had to signify that I don't care about clothes. Second, I had to find a good scarf. I picked the wrong one; it was so light that it kept slipping off my hair all night. When we got there I met up with a friend and her sister-in-law (who's younger than me! She's her bro's wife), and a friend from high school who I hadn't seen in a while. We were the only Iranians there; this mosque is meant for Pakistanis. We came because for a few nights they are having services in English, and the speaker was very good. He was quite knowledgable and lectured on some Islamic history. Great stuff, I really learned a lot. The only thing was that since it's a school night, it takes up time to drive there and wait for it to start. I might go again tomorrow, but we'll have to see.

Test went well, I'm glad to say. I love Diels-Alder Reactions! I'm so surprised that I took the test and actually knew what to do. Hopefully, it will turn out well, and I'll get a good grade. I found out I missed something funny while I was studying yesterday (curses!) and something surprising happened today (shockers!). Emotions abound. Had another dream, but it was very neutral. It was one of those dreams that just mirrors what you do everyday, like sitting in class. Nothing special. I'm glad, cuz I can't deal with all the drama in my unconscious. Reality's tough enough as it is. I got another paper that was due next week moved to after Spring Break! Yea! So next week I just have 2 tests. Woohoo!

All right! I showed up to TA today and she said I could go home since she already had a TA there. Yes! I went to my youngest sister's school to pick up the house key and my other sister's school to leave a note saying I would pick her up. I finally got home in time to catch the last 5 min. of Passions and get to studying for the big O Chem test tomorrow. Even though our class is one hour long, his tests are two hours long. He takes advantage of the fact that it's an 8am class by knowing for a fact that we don't have anything scheduled at 7 am. So that's when our tests are: from 7am-9am, even though the class is from 8-9. If that's not insanity, I don't know what is. This one guy I know came up today and told me that he had a dream that I cured cancer. That does it. Now I have to be a doctor; the Fates have dealt it. OK, I'm gonna do a separate rant to blow off steam, so if it doesn't make sense don't worry about it.
RANT STARTS NOW: Why do you always have to be so judgemental? Why can't you just stop being such a jerk? Why can't you just frickin' get out of my head so I can concentrate? Why are you so manipulative? And why the hell do I see your face when I read about Heathcliff??? END OF RANT. Much better. I'm slowly replacing this person's face with Johnny Depp's. He'd be a perfect Heathcliff. He won the Screen Actor's Guild award for Best Actor in Pirates. He's great. OK, everybody make sure to watch Whoopi and Happy Family tonight so that I have somebody to talk about tomorrow to take my mind off the test. That's your homework assignment tonight.

On : 2/24/2004 7:07:18 PM Jenny (www) said:

hmmm, i believe ASSHOLE says it best. but yes judgemental people are nothing more than a waste of time, especially when you know they could never turn their judgements inward for fear of what they might find. People that get stuck in your head are even more irritating! Especially when you know they are the last person you would every want to associate with that thought. Ok have fun and good luck on your O Chem test!

On : 2/24/2004 7:17:44 PM Tiffany (www) said:

The only thing I can think of is...try not to think too much! Sometimes we tend to analyze things to a point of exhaustion, and it's not really worth it. We tire ourselves needlessly, especially if our strengths need to be used for studying for horrible O Chem tests. Take care of yourself, dearest, and know that Maryam is more important than that jerk, so he's not worth the space your mind is giving him.

I got an email from my boss for TA saying that she needs me to come in tomorrow. I was planning on not going so that I could study for the Chem test. She doesn't think anybody else will come. I don't know if I should blow it off or come in. Ah, complicated! In other news, yesterday I went to the memorial for the boy who died on Tuesday. It was very sad and intense. His friends all came and shared their memories. His bro who was driving the car also said a few words. It is such a tragedy. I'm sort of afraid to drive because of it, but I'm just trying to be extra careful. Everybody be careful out there. We live in a scary world.

"That girl was a one-time teenage drama queen, now she's a somebody!" I just saw Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. I LOVE movies where there is singing and/or dancing. This had both. Tween movies are so much fun. It's great to just forget about everything for a while and just have fun. They even talked about Wuthering Heights in the movie! "This is just like Heathcliff running through the moors." I finished my WH reading assignment and wrote my paper about why Catherine should have married Heathcliff. I like this book now; I'm getting to the juicy stuff. I'm up to Ch.3 of Book 2. Now that this English stuff is out of the way I can concentrate on O Chem. Last night I dreamt about this guy I know. It was kind of a racy dream. It's so weird to have dreams like that about people that you know would never act that way with you. Who knows what's in my unconscious?

This weekend is very much focused on getting caught up in Organic Chemistry. The big test is Wednesday, meaning I have 5 days to get smart. Of course, I have an English commentary over Wuthering Heights due that same day, so I have to keep with reading that. My assignment is to read 100 pages over the weekend, which would be a piece of cake if O Chem wasn't on my mind. 80 pages to go...

OK, just finished reading the first 7 chapters of Wuthering Heights. I have no idea what this book is talking about. There's a bunch of quotes, but you're not told who says them. And I know that everybody is related to everybody else, but how are they related? Who are these people? Is it bad that everytime I read "Heathcliff" I think of the orange cat?

Someone I know died today. He was in 8th grade and his brother was in 11th. His brother was driving him to school this morning at 80 mph when he lost control and hit a large cable box on the passenger side. The younger brother died on impact and the older one is in the hospital. I've known these boys since I was in 7th grade, about the same age as this boy when he died and the same age as my sister who went to school with him. Each of my sisters goes to school with each of these brothers, actually. They're Persians, which is significant in the fact that it means that I would see them much more than if they were casual acquaintances at my sister's schools. It adds a new dimension to the tragedy. I can think of so many stories about them, and I keep seeing the little one's face as he grew older these past 7 years, yet retained his innocence. I know his brother will feel guilty the rest of his life for what happened. May God bless him and his family in this sad time.

On : 2/17/2004 9:52:50 PM diego (www) said:

that's so sad...i'll be sure to slow down tomorrow morning on the drive to school. there's no reason to lose a life over something you think is cool like going way over the limit.

So I took my English test where we're given 6 excerpts from texts we've read and have to write about 4 of them in one hour. I wrote about William Blake's The Chimney Sweeper from Songs of Innocence, Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Women, John Keats's Ode to a Nightingale, and William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. They're all great reads; I love Romanticism. We're moving on now to Victorianism. It's my other specialty, but my heart really is rooted in Romanticism, both generations of it. If you want social commentary, go to the first generation, but if you want escapism, go to the second generation. Second generation Romantics were often intrigued by the Middle East, seeing it as exotic a la Arabian Nights. There was even a poem modeled after that story, Thomas Moore's Lalla Rookh. Of course, we never read about that part of Romanticism in my course. It's very Euro-centric. My school says that they have a course on Persian poetry, but they won't give me a course name/number for it. Sounds a little fishy to me.

I went to a luncheon today. It was thrown by this woman whose husband just back from his pilgrimage to Mecca. Therefore, there was a lot of primping being done at my house. It's so funny how us girls run around like chickens with our heads cut off while my dad just puts on a suit and watches CNN. I had rollers in my hair, while blowdrying and putting on makeup at the same time. Plus I was taking off and putting on so many clothes carefully so as not to upset the rollers. In our culture, appearance is everything. A family is often judged by the beauty of its daughters. That's why when I arrived at the luncheon, I was not surprised to see that the college-age girls (who all go to community college for what it's worth, btw) had nose jobs recently done. It seems that everytime I go to one of these things somebody's had something done. People who say hi to me will often examine my face to see if there's been a change and look relieved that I'm the same person. I've never changed my hair or my face. The only alterations I've ever made to my appearance is color contacts (they're very natural and tasteful, most people don't even notice) and makeup (also pretty low-key). My hair is the same color it was 20 years ago in 2 weeks, the night I was born in Bristol. The only primping I do is curling/blowdrying my hair, setting my clothes and accessories, and doing my own makeup. I'm a simple girl with simple tastes.

I saw the Princess Diaries tonight on TV. It's such a nice movie. I sort of identify with it on a special level, considering I found out that I'm a princess a year after I saw it for the first time in theaters. Anne Hathaway is even the actress I look the most like. I admit that I was a little surprised when I found out, but at least I knew that I didn't have the kind of responsibilities that Princess Mia has in the film. I guess that's the perk of being a princess of a fallen dynasty: you get the title, but you don't do anything with it. Although having the title does sometimes make me think I should be a better role model and live up to the expectations and legacy of my ancestors. Of course, if I was the princess I was meant to be, I would probably live in a harem like this one and I'd definitely have at least 5 kids by now. It's a trade-off, but my heritage does make me want to learn as much as I can about my family's past. It's one of the biggest motivators I've ever had.

Yeah, I'm from the same dynasty as the one in the book. What's weird is that she was born exactly 100 years before I was (1884), and she kept a journal which is now read by the world. Spooky, isn't it?
Today was the first snowfall of winter. Those of you up north may be rolling your eyes, but it's a big deal in Dallas. Instead of a white Christmas, we got a white Valentine's Day. I think it's actually more romantic when the weather is this way. I went for a long walk outside and just marveled at the white trees. It looked like something out of Dr. Zhivago or, as my mom said, a "carte postale." It really was beautiful. I've been reading a lot of Romantic poetry lately centering on nature (my test is Monday), so I felt particularly inspired. I went to Sam Moon for the first time. It was packed. My favorite bags were the ones with celebrities on them. I really like the Audrey Hepburn Roman Holiday, Beatles performing, Friends cast in the picture frame, and the Elle magazine cover. The lead article was "Do gentlemen really prefer blondes (and fake tans and long nails)?" It was totally awesome and speaks volumes to me. My sisters and dad picked up Krispy Kreme, so I'm enjoying that with some hot tea and cocoa. Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

OK, I'm really getting in a pissy mood. I don't particularly like myself when I get like this, but oh well. My grades, relationships, and social issues are sort of coming apart in my mind. I'm beginning to blame the holidays. There's nothing like Valentine's Day to make you feel pathetic. But think of it this way: Women outnumber men 4 to 1. Of the 75% of women left 25% are lesbians. Therefore, at least 50% of women are alone this Valentine's Day. I was wondering something else. If Valentine's Day is based on the idea of St. Valentine's Day, do churches have sermons devoted to it or are religious rituals performed?

On : 2/13/2004 7:06:42 PM Tiffany (www) said:

It's okay, girl! You should move to Alaska, where the men outnumber the women 10:1. Those are some nice odds.

Here's the way I'd like to think about this holiday (or otherwise I'll get really depressed). This is a mass publicized chance for me to express my feelings to those I already love. Granted there is no man on the sidelines, caring family and friends are beside me. I know you have that much.

Take care!

I found out that I know somebody who apparently nobody else likes. I heard a couple stories about him today, and I kind of understand why. I had always thought of him as someone in the shadows, but there are some very passionate feelings against him. Pretty interesting stuff...

Oh, please. You're totally threatened by Eric and possibly even Brian. Persianguy, I haven't heard from you in a while. Welcome back.
I went to the 9am Psych class so that I could get out of class at 1 instead of 3 today. He ended class at 9:30 so I had breakfast in the lounge and chatted. Then those people left and a couple more people came in and I chatted. Then I headed off to play pool and I wasn't particularly good at it. I'd never heard of "cutthroat" style before; it made me think of pirates. I usually just take turns hitting the ball until the black one goes in to end the game. None of this "you're in or out" business. So, disappointed in my ability, I returned to the safe haven of the lounge, which was packed. It was weird, cuz when I left it was empty. So I hung in there and had a really nice time. I even saw some people I hadn't seen since last term b/c of scheduling conflicts. Then I headed off to class to talk about "Ode on a Grecian Urn." OK, this is the 6th time I've studied this poem; the last time I did was 2 wks ago in another English class. Can we please read something new? I'm always shocked when there are people in the class who haven't read it before (although there was no more than 3, mind you). How could you have avoided reading this poem? It's always thrown in my face. So I picked up Baker Bros. Texas Cobb salad on my way home. I swear, they have the only salads that will fill me up cuz they're just so freakin huge! No wonder they were voted Best Big Salad by the Dallas Observer.

Um, you know who you played pool with so say it. Besides, I asked Diego to play pool and you wanted to come along, so we graciously played a game that would involve all of us as you made it an odd count and taking turns back and forth doesn't work with three. So quite your whining.

Wow, the readership of our little blog circle is growing. Who'd a thunk it. Today was a boring day a work with a lot of downtime. My coworker didn't show up for work (I think she overslept), but it didn't really affect me since I was working with a different doctor. All I had to do in lab today was pick up a couple spectra for my unknowns. I have to identify them by Thursday. We aren't given a list to pick from, just the Aldrich catalog, which lists all chemical compounds on the planet. Thanks a lot. I have a lot of free time tomorrow, so I'm hoping to play some pool. I haven't played in, like, a year. I may be rusty, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

Wednesday, February 11, 2004

Remember that Cell Bio test I thought I aced? Well, I got a 70. Couldn't be farther from acing. The weather totally blew this morning so I got to O Chem 20 min late. I found out that my 10 and 11 am classes are canceled on Friday. That means I'll be free from 9-12 that day. Maybe I can use that time to play pool with Diego. I might even get Krispy Kreme for the lounge. Key word: might. When I was in my Brit Authors 2 class, Prof Newman wrote "cockney" on the board and said that it reminded her of the Beatles, although it was used incorrectly b/c they were from Liverpool not London. Then Prof Bozorth suggested that Davy Jones of the Monkees would be a better example of cockney. I fought the urge to jump up in the middle of class and say, "Davy Jones is from Manchester, not London! A better example of cockney is Eliza Dolittle (Audrey Hepburn) in My Fair Lady." I knew if I did, not only would I sound like a smartass, but I'd have to explain that I'm from Bristol, etc. Then they would ask why I don't have an accent and by the time I finished explaining my life story, class would be over. Bozorth was very proud of his connection, but Newman said, "If you don't know who the Monkees are, don't worry. You're not missing anything." It was like she stomped on my heart! I love The Monkees, especially Davy Jones. I've been a huge fan ever since I was 13. I know that sounds a little unbelievable coming from a 20 year old, but it's true. Then I hung out in the lounge, where I had a blast. It was a lot better than Monday, thanks to Diego shushing the nonstop talking guy. Then I went to Developmental Psych and learned about Sexual Maturation. I know, too much info. Well, I had to pick up my sister from school today b/c my mom had to go to this thing all afternoon. So I braved the crappy rain all the way to Plano, picked her up, and when I got home I realized that neither of us have a key. So I waited for the bus to drop off my other sister, and she didn't have a key either. So we stayed in the car in the driveway for 3 hrs doing homework. Well, they did homework, I slept after beating myself up about what an idiot I am. Then when my mom got home and finally let us in from the cold, she gave me a talking to. I admit that I deserved it, but I had already beaten myself up enough. I do to myself what no one could ever do to me. Luckily, my mom had already made her world-famous lasagne that morning (best white sauce ever!), so we enjoyed that while watching Smallville. After that, we watched The OC (first new episode in 3 weeks). The best part was when Seth was introducing Summer to the wonderful world of comic books. In case you didn't know, comic books are another passion of mine, esp. DC. Well, he said all comic enthusiasts must read "The Dark Knight Returns, Watchmen, and The Sandman." OK, I have the Dark Knight Returns, and Watchmen and Sandman (Midsummer Night's Dream one) have been on my wish list since July. Then Seth, Anna, and Summer were watching Batman: The Animated Series and the episode they were watching was "Girl's Night Out," the one where Batgirl and Supergirl team up cuz Batman and Superman are out of town or something. Get this: I have that episode on tape! Can you believe this? It's like this show has been following me around on my odyssey to become a comic book afficionado and chronicled it's rise just for me. How cool is that?! Next thing you know, they're gonna watch Justice League and Lois and Clark. I can't believe I got to revel in 2 of my greatest passions in one day! If only it didn't have to be on the same day as 2 of my greatest downers.

Another famous cockney accent is Michael Cane, I think he grew up on the East End. How long did you live in Bristol? I'm from Kensington! When did you move to the US? I've lived here nearly 10 years, & I only have my accent if we go over there to visit for a while, or if I'm really sleepy. Yeah MTV! (that's how I learned my "American" accent)

I lived in Bristol for 6 months, then lived in Iran for another 6 months, then moved to Dallas, TX. I don't have an English accent; mines more a product of my parent's accents, TX drawl, and learning English from Sesame Street. I agree, Michael Caine is a fine example of cockney.

OK, so now I have an imposter on my hands. That's just great. I hope it's not the suspicious guy I mentioned yesterday. The last thing I need is getting him involved in this. I was with the nice doctor this morning (yea!) and finished work in a timely manner. When I got to the school the Airline Garage was full (as usual), so for the first time ever, I parked in the Commuter Lot. I drive my coworker to school too after work (she's a senior at SMU) and when I drove up to the lot I said, "Oh look, there's Will bike." So she asked, "Who's Will?" and I said, "Oh, nobody. You don't want to know him." She was perfectly content with my answer. :p

OK, there's this one guy that I know, and I think he is up to something. He's being very sneaky, and I'm finding evidence of duplicitous behavior on his part at every turn.

OMG, there's this guy in the lounge that will not stop talking. He just goes on and on and on and on and won't stop. Even when everyone tells him that everything he's saying is garbage, he keeps talking. Today, he busted out a mini radio controlled race car. OK, this guy's a college senior. It's a little rediculous to see him get excited about this thing. Oh and I meant mini as in miniature, not mini cooper. It was actually a toy hummer.

I was just thinking about the various loves and losses we all undergo by the time we're 20. We know we're not going to marry any of the people that we like, but they nevertheless consume our thoughts. When I like a guy, he's often all I can think about. He becomes the focus of all my energy, thereby making my other relationships and responsibilities suffer. I'm currently not crushing on anybody, but I just keep thinking what if someone new does come into my life. Will he wind up taking all my time, energy, and thoughts when I know that he is not doing the same? Will I be sad, will he make me cry and will that be worth the thrill that enters my heart when I catch a glimpse of him?

I just got back from threading. I went to a new place this time which charged only $15! I was paying $30 before. Plus this lady was faster and less painful. She was great! It was in an Indian neighborhood so we checked out some of the neighboring stores. We went into this bakery, but had no clue what the cashier was saying. We picked up some coconut macaroons, but we're still not sure how that happened. For some reason there was a pool table in the bakery. Hmm...

It's a form of hair removal in which a piece of thread is passed over the hair. It's like plucking/tweezing but it picks up more hairs at once. It's pretty much only practiced by MidEasterners and Indian Subcontinenters. I go to a salon and have it done on my face and eyebrows; it's just been hard finding a salon that will do it and they're mostly in Indian areas.

I just finished reading "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight." It's so much better now than it was when I read it in 10th grade. There's so much intrigue and sexual innuendo. I love it! The masculine stuff (fighting, gutting animals) is just as boring as it ever was, but overall I liked it. I then read some Coleridge. I can't stand him, no wonder Wordsworth stopped being friends with him. Wordsworth is so much better; he's a total genius and obviously the brains of the operation. Coleridge was probably someone just to get high with. So that brings me to my current state of studying for Cell Biology. While I do that, I invite you all to check out Diego's blog. It's brand spanking new and I love it already. Since he put my name first and is using Blogger, I'm taking credit for his conversion to blogism before Will and Ben have chance. HaHa! I still want to guess who his crush is; I really like Peanut M&M's.

My Psych test was totally unbelievably easy. It was 50 ?'s MC and I finished in 20 min. I'm glad I'll have aced some test this month. My next test is Cell Biology on Monday. Hopefully, I'll get my act together for that testa and it will be more like Psych than O Chem. It is also 50 ?'s MC, so hopefully that's a good sign.

I've come to the conclusion that I should stop thinking inappropriate thoughts aloud. I just keep saying this stuff in the lounge that is just plain wrong and only the few girls present think is funny. The guys are just freaked out. I think I'm just so normal looking that they don't expect that my sexual innuendo can outdo theirs. Or maybe I'm just plain weird...

Diego's my newest reader, which is totally awesome. His car is such a chick magnet. My car is, well, not. I drive a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. It's website actually says, "Just because you're married with kids doesn't mean you're too old to have a nice car." That means I'm driving a mom-mobile. Diego's got a Mini Cooper, though, which is so tyte and reminds me of "The Italian Job." I like watching my readership grow. It's an English major's dream to be read. On a sad note, I got a 60 on the above O Chem test. Yuck! I went to all those help sessions, too! I have to find a way to ace this class fast. I know there's a secret to it; I just have to find out what it is. I'm not gonna let it get to me right now, though. I have a Psych test tomorrow, Cell Bio on Monday, and an English paper due Wed. Busy, busy, busy! Oh, and remember, the vagina is a dangerous environment.

I took my first Organic Chemistry test today. Basically I knew 4 out of 6 pages really well, while the other 2 pages I'm shaky on. I really hope I did well. I studied so hard I didn't even post about it on here. Well, tomorrow I turn in my first set of lab reports. It wasn't until a braved the nasty, nasty rain and cold to make it home in one piece that I got on the lab site to see that there was a lab review help session today at 6. I know that's 2 hrs. away but it's so not worth it to spend an hr. going back to campus for this. If I had known about it before I would have planned to stay on campus for it. What happened to announcing these things through email or in lecture? I'm already going to a help session tomorrow at 6pm though. That means I'll miss Friends! Don't worry; I'll set my VCR. Hopefully, I make it back in time for the "corporate reshuffling" on The Apprentice. The Donald rox!

Diego, let me in on the action. What's goin on, my man? You wanna know something funny? In middle school, my friends used to call me Mayram as a nickname cuz it's my name backwards. That's how they'd address all the notes that they'd pass to me in class. I think it's funny how Will spelled your name wrong. Email me and I'll try to guess which girl you're after.

I rediscovered Electric Light Orchestra's "Mr. Blue Sky." It truly is a masterpiece that was buried under a myriad of mp3 files in my computer. The new message under my blog title is from this song. Now I'm listening to the Harvard Bar scene from Good Will Hunting. I swear it's solid gold. Today is February 1; let the countdown begin until my birthday, February 29. Yes, I'm a leap year baby. This year I'll actually have a birthday; it will be my 5th. That means this is my last month of being a teenager. Starting next month, I will no longer be able to blame my irresponsibilities on being a teen. Ah, youth, why must thee be so fleeting?

You won't not be a teen, you'll be a toddler.
