Grade 11 - Semester One - Over.

The End. Finito. No more!

It's here and done. Never again shall I have to suffer through this again this way. Honestly speaking, it was torture. And what for? In the end, the Subjects I focused on most left me disappointed; the ones I focused on least made me pleased. Ironic much?

First Period Photography - Strongly disliked certain parts it (the course) at first. Then I guess, I learned to love it. And I always loved photography so that made things easier. I learned a lot from that class. A LOT. Techniques about photography which will help me forever onwards. I'm able to see Photography in a new way now...with a new passion. :)

Second Period English - Don't even ask. Too much effort gone to waste.

Fourth Period French - French is fun, I love learning it. Teacher was awesome. I look forward to it next year for further improvement in my speaking of this tongue :P

Fifth Period Biology - Biology is really interesting. I'm satisfied with how I did and I gained a lot of knowledge and understanding. The Class was also fantastic, it was great. I look forward to next year Bio as well.

And that's that. Little summary of how the semester went. Well, no. This was a summary of how today's Exam Review Day went. But either way, this semester is over. The lessons learned were definitely beneficial and worth-while. Yeah it was hard to get past, but at least we're done with it.

Now, as of this Monday, February 2nd, 2009 begins Semester Two of Grade 11. Let's just hope it's less of a torture and more of a success :) InshaAllah.

Absolutely Nothing

So it's around twelve thirty in the morning. Twelve twenty a.m. to be exact.

It's a Sunday night, no school tomorrow due to exams. I should sleep so I can get up early and study for my exam the following day. Instead, I'm up here writing a complete nonsense post and listening all random bollywood songs I can think of: Hoth Rasilay, haule haule, tujh mein rab dik tha hai, dance pe chance, beegay honth tere, my dil goes hmmm.

I was in the mood for a very cheesy flick, but could not find one. Hence. I just can not wait for Tuesday, Jan/27 11 a.m. After which I will completely done and over with Semester One and would be able to relax fully.

Okay, I'm out of random things to say. Good Night :)

Quote - 04/09/08

I strive for love
I strive for care
I strive for something
that was perhaps,
never there...

So here came exam time.. and while studying for my English Exam, I came across this quote/poem-ish piece of literature I had made up on the night of Thursday, September 4th, 2008. English class seemed to like the theme of love..

MY Cake!

Yes, the day has finally arrived that I have created my very first cake - from SCRATCH!!

That's right folks... no assistance from mum what-so-ever!! Well, she had to tell me where the ingredients and equipment were located.. but apart from that I did it ALL-BY-MYSELF! :D Yes this is probably the first thing I made by myself, so yeah, I'm gunna be happy about it!

The recipe was obtained from my little cousin, Maham.. so thank you Mahamu! Too bad you're not here to taste it and tell me how it is!

It's nothing fancy, a simple plain-cake (with chocolate and few walnuts), but hey, it's a start!

Happy New Year 2009!

Here we are!! Thousand and nine! Wow! It honesty just feels like just yesterday when I took a picture and exclaimed, "here's the first picture of 2008"! And just last night (12:00am) I clicked the first picture of 2009.

The year of thousand and eight was really a productive and will always remain a memorable year. Lots happened. So many memories, so many happy moments, much bonding and also finding some really great friends. This year started off with grade ten and ended with grade eleven..these divided the year into half. I'll have to say I enjoyed and loved the first part of 2008 much more than the latter. Most of this has to do with being in grade ten and eleven, but apart from that Life was just real good! Many more memories on Facebook and MSN. Yes, that includes staying up until three, four, five and six in the morning! What great nights!
I would give highlights of this past year, but at this current moment I lack the energy; perhaps another time.

So here we are 2009! One more year gone that will never return; one more year gone that leads us closer to certain ends.. but also one more year that leads us to a another beginning. Let's forgive and forget all the sorrows while cherishing the joys and make the most of the year two thousand and nine!
Happy New Year! :)
