a long long time ago

10 years ago I ...

  • was 7 years
  • was having cat fights with a 5 yr old brat in my family
  • was a rebel (just surprises me now, and we're talking abt the physical-fight rebel lol)
  • was under the wing of an awesome local singer
  • used to sing - by far thats the best part abt this year
  • "loved to boss around" - mom (me?! you've got to be kidding..)

5 years ago I ...

  • was 12 and struggling with my tween attitude
  • was studying in a convent for the first time (enlightening...)
  • was never surrounded by so MANY girls ! jk
  • learnt a ..whole lot about erm, feminism and how girls should REALLY be (utter bs if you ask moi)
  • tennis was a part of my life by now
  • had my first crush *sigh* (I swear it was the eyes! 'n the fact we played tennis together)
  • had a series of crushes from then on
  • surprisingly took the whole deal of turning 13 as any other b'day (that was my tween attitude lol)
  • found out my mom was pregnant (... it WAS a shock, having to deal with another sibling)

3 years ago I ...

  • landed in high school, in a new city, new state
  • had my first official phone stalker
  • pursued my dad to get a called ID, but parents...mweh, they found it humorous
  • got over my first crush haha (that took 2 years, yes)
  • declared tennis as my sole ambition in life (that didn't go off too well with the adults though)
  • began to be more tomboyish - loving every moment of it
  • had 'bhang' or whatever its called for the first time
  • was called a 'young ladeh'.... *sigh* someone was living a disillusioned life
  • wondered if anyone could fall so hard over a guy like I had (I did get the answer next year - no one)
  • made a handful of great friends :)
  • got to hear the Pee song by Shvk the first time 'n got into a carpool for the first time

A year ago I ...

  • was in the final year of high school
  • didn't like the idea of leaving my roomates/3 best friends in Azkaban (my boarding school)
  • changed my city, house, school for the 8th time I think
  • got the "don't-give-a-shit" attitude I hated a few years back
  • still sucked at Physics
  • grew so close to a guy it scared me to death
  • turned 17 (by far the only year when I look back and wonder whether it was the worst/best year of my life)
  • felt 'responsible' (at last) when I watched my little sister off on her first day at school

This year I ...

  • HATE the fact I'm turning 18
  • wish September would never end
  • had the longest summer vacation (4 months)
  • grew so far apart from a guy 'n that scared me too
  • got into university (yeah, it was doubtful..)
  • shall stay away from cigs (hear that mom?), even though its allowed at 18
  • have posted more entries on my blogs than I'd eva done before
  • found out I'd have to attend 4 high-school reunions

Yesterday I ...

  • watched The Notebook for the 6th time
  • posted on this blog at some crazy hour
  • talked to a close friend after weeks and it felt good
  • played the Sims all day
  • was reminded by the newspaper it was Labor Day 'n the reason for my sister's holiday

Today I ...

  • woke up real early
  • had a long looooong discussion with my little sister on the movie 'Shark Tale'
  • was told by a family friend I'd put on a few pounds (um, doesn't a girl love to hear that)
  • almost put on my gym shoes but hopelessly gave up the idea ( I hate Tuesdays in general)
  • got to know about love potions on Sims, thnks to my sis
  • ate like no tomorrow
  • made a pathetic attempt at a make-over
  • sit here wondering if this entry is even productive in any way

Tomorrow I ...

  • will be excited about Orientation at uni (even though it's the 2nd one)
  • will try to look at the positive side of my dad returning from his project work after a month
  • shall try not to post on here
  • will go for the 4 day ol' jog
  • will laze around all day and basically do nothing once the evening sets in
  • will be yawning like a maniac at the same hour - doing nothing
  • will wait for some miracle to make things like they were before

Song of the moment : So Far Away - Staind vs. Mr. Bombastic - Shaggy ( as if )
