Valentine's Day/ Driving School/ Fiqh of Love & no voice

February 12th, 2010

Hey people!
Today was a half day at school since it is going to be winter break so I got out of school at 11:55 am (lol yes 55! not just Noon)

Me and my amigos went to the mall to watch "Valentine's Day"

Of course I was just expecting another FAIL plot/romcom

and I got it.

The only good part was seeing Taylor Lautner! ( :'D)

Would I recommend anyone to see it?

Hell no. It sucked that bad.

Just watch it online if you're dying for some celebrity action


After the mall, I came home and finally decided to sign up (read: PAY) for driving school online. That way I can:

+ Get the pink/white/yellow/blue -depending on who you ask- slip so I can
+Take (PAY) my permit test, then
+Practice (PAY) for a minimum of six hours with a driving instructor and wait for
+6 months to
+Take (PAY) for my driver's test

And hopefully, I'll pass first time

I'm not holding my breath.

So far I've done two sections that were around 13- 16 pages of reading each and passed the quizzes at the end.

Two more sections to go .___.


I didn't expect to go anywhere since my Dad had airport today (he's a taxi cab driver -whom I am PROUD to call my father- and every other day is his turn at the airport; you can make the most money there so every cab gets a fair chance)

But my older brother was coming down from UCD today and my uncle picked him up. When he dropped him off, he asked if I wanted to go the masjid for the 'Fiqh of Love' program.

It's an Al-maghrib class that costs $135 dollars for an intense 10 am to 8 pm classes from Saturday and Sunday. Today was a free preview day.

There was much buzz about the program and I know plenty of my friends had signed up, so I agreed to go last minute even though I was an hour late.

The agreement for my uncle taking me was that I had to sleep over at my aunt's house (they are my mother's siblings) so I threw on an abaya over my pajamas and threw a toothbrush in my bag.

Ready to go!

When I got the masjid (and finally spotting my friends in a sea of hijabis... you know, we all look alike from behind!) I seriously have to say the topic was ...

beyond BORING.

Maybe it might've been livelier early on during the 2 hour program (I doubt it)

But the speaker was just speaking -duh- about the jealous surrounding the Prophet's wives and about them individually (maybe, I missed a HUGE part of the lecture)

I didn't know the Prophet had 10 wives (and one concubine, though there's a difference of opinion)

So at around 10, my uncle dropped me off here, at my Aunt's house, where I am proceeding to spend the night.

And I've lost my voice partially since Wednesday.

It was at its worst yesterday, thursday, but now it's down to a husky-ness?

UGH. It sucks because I can't speak clearly and I can't yell.

Imagine falling behind a group of friends and you can't yell at them to wait

They get farther, and farther... while you are forced to walk fast or jog through a crowd.


Anyway, hopefully this cold/allergy/funkystuff goes away soon!

And in time for SAD, HAPPY SAD! (on sunday.. not today)

So yeah, that's my crazy day. Wait until TOMORROW.

I really wanted to see valentine's day on tuesday (cause I'm cheap like that lol) ... but I guess I'll be watching it online since so many people are saying it's a waste of money :'(

I hope you get your voice back inshAllah. Drink lots of honey to heal your throat. Just add it to your tea like I do, I hope it works for you.

Keep up with your driving school, it will all be worth it in the end inshAllah.

And thanks on the driving part ._.; hopefully!

Naz: LOL Same here! I missed talking, but it was kind of a wake up call to how much I talk, lol
Me too! I always think being sick is fun until it actual happens to me... maybe I just like the missing school part. Umm, where have you been? I missed you too habibti! I'm glad you're making more posts :D (don't worry, I get really lazy in commenting too heh)

GTFrenzy: Hey, if you still wanted to go ahead :D LOL But I just suggested seeing it online, since I'm cheap like that too haha I tried drinking honey with tea, alhamdulillah, I gradually got my voice back :D Thank you :]
