shooooooot

i have no self control. i bought a book yesterday and really thought i could wait a week until the mcat was done before starting it. BUT today i wake up and decide i don't really want to study so instead, i start and finish The Kite Runner. i read it in 5 hours straight..i know, i have a problem. it's a really good book though, i highly recommend it.

i want to go to bahia bay and drink chugafreezes and eat chili fries.

crunchtime

so, just over a week to go and James gives me a two. SHOOT. Not a great way to end a day but, what can you do? it's looking like another M for me but I doubt a repeat on the 36. SHOOOOOOOOOT. So at the kaplan center i was talking to these girls and one asked me what i got and me, not caring, tells her and SHE LAUGHS IN MY FACE. she actually laughs....she's like an M?!?!?! isn't that like 2's??? OMG i wanted to punch her and tell her i hope she gets an L but, because i'm a nice person, i say nothing and just leave to go meet my friends b/c she's probably too much of a keener to have any. i hate meeting ppl at kaplan who are like...yeah, i don't know what to do anymore b/c i've already gone through all the extra practice stuff kaplan has. OMG, i've had two years and i still haven't even done have of it or read any of my books....SHOOOOT. there are lots of shoots in this post but that's my life right now.

i need a blue sky holiday; i had a bad day

i need to decide, i need to figure things out
will my parents notice if i disappear for a month? because that's the only way i'll be able to come to asia with you
PS. i need some clarity....can you share??

When I look in the mirror the only one there is me

Every freckle on my face is where it’s supposed to be

And I know our creator didn’t make no mistakes on me

My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes; I’m lovin’ what I see

I’m not the average girl from your video

And I ain’t built like a supermodel

But, I learned to love myself unconditionally

Because I am a queen

nerdface

the highlight of my day is doing the jumble and the scrabble challenge in the Province. i also enjoy watching jeopardy. today i got the maximum score on my scrabble thing and it was the most exciting moment b/c i'm not very good at scrabble.
by the way, disney song lyrics is the best jeopardy category ever, i just wish reena/allie were with me b/c they would appreciate it most and actually give me some real competition.
i know, nerdface.

fatty fatty 2-by-4.....

yesterday i bought the new harry potter book and started reading it last night....and finished it this afternoon. i know, i have a problem. i really should try to slow down when i like books but i can always read them again right?
anyways, is it possible to have a binge and purge disorder and just forget to purge? because if it is...diagnose me....and jess while we're at it. today i ate(in order): a cold piece of pizza straight out of the fridge from friday, broccoli and cheese pasta salad, a pizza bun, two fudgsicles, cheese and crackers and one more fudgsicle to top it all off. and this was for lunch.
help me.
but, tomorrow i'm going to the gym and at least the fudgsicles were fat free. HAHAHA
ps. tomorrow i go to see keith(the dentist) and he's numbing me...should be an interesting visit.

prior to my near-death experience

so last tuesday i went to see keith, my dentist. yup, i call him keith and so does the hygienist and everyone else who works at the office. so the first time i saw this dentist he walked in and he was still wearing his UBC labcoat and looked like he was barely 20. i was like....are you sure you're a real dentist? and he played 50 CENT IN HIS OFFICE that day. wow, but i've kinda gotten used to him now and checked his diploma and he graduated from ubc dentistry in 2003 and i first saw him in 2004 but he hasn't hurt me yet....although he did once under-numb me for a filling and then WAY over-numb me after i pointed it out to him but other than that he hasn't hurt me. so anyways, i saw him last wednesday and while i was waiting for my hygienist to come in, i hear him in the back...is that puneet?? tell her she's NERD! so my hygienist comes in and relays the message from keith and in my head i'm just thinking....i let him drug me?? then when i actually see him, he tells me i grind my teeth in my sleep and that i have to get a nightguard...then he starts laughing in my face because what's nerd-ier than a night guard. wow. but i get to see him again next week for a filling because i'm bad and don't floss enough so i'll probably have more stories about keith soon.
this past weekend i went to seattle for my cousin's 6th birthday. i had so much fun because i love being the older cousin and playing/taking care of the littler kids. also, after seeing me at work in the kitchen, my cousin's grandmother told my mom i was 'wife-trained'......eeek indian ladies scare me when they say things like that about me. reena's older so until she gets married, it doesn't matter whether or not i'm 'wife-trained'.
then i went to many kaplan classes in two days and then on the way back home i had my 'incident'(see preivous post). other than that i'm happy and excited for miss jessica lee's birthday fun on thursday.

SCARIEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE

I ALMOST DIED TODAY

today, i almost became one of those head-on collisions you hear about on the sea-to-sky highway....i understand why people think it's so dangerous...CRAZY people make it dangerous

anyways, so i'm driving along and it's just getting dark and i'm approaching this bridge at the bottom of a hill. then i see this little dark car coming down the hill...FAST like 160+ km/hr fast and if any of you know the sea-to-sky highway, you know it's not one you can drive that fast on....and as we both approach the bridge from opposite directions i notice HE'S DRIVING IN MY LANE(there were only two lanes). so i honk the tuti out of my horn and hit the brakes but by the time we meet on this bridge he's STILL partly in my lane(and still going so fast) so i have to swerve to the right and scrape along the railing and there's black things flying up in the air and it's LOUD and then the bastard guy doesn't even stop!!! so i pull over expecting half of my poor jeep to be missing but amazingly it's just all scratched up but there's bits of wood stuck in between the tire and my rims and the edges of my rims have all been scraped away and i don't even know where this wood came from. so i take out my phone to call my dad/cops/someone and of course my phone is dead so i just hope my car will make it home. then on the way home there are all these cops on the side of the road so i stop to get one of them to check my car over and tell them about this crazy guy, and his response is like..yeah, there are some crazy drivers out here...be careful.....THANKS BUDDY. then i drive home so slow because i'm still expecting another car to be coming at me head-on and when i try to tell my dad(who's watching one of his indian soap operas) and sees i'm not hurt so he holds up his hand to shush me til a commercial!!! wow i feel so loved. but at least they didn't make a big deal about my scratched up car.

so that's how i almost died today
