Maksim 00:69 aka “The Chosen One”

Max is someone who should have been in my best friends post but because I didn’t include him in then he is now getting an entire post to himself!  Hopefully no one gets jelly.  (Get it, like jealous? LUL) Max really is one of the most outrageous people I know.  I still remember taking this picture of him when Catherine and I were hanging out in his dorm room.  But the thing about Max is he is also one of the best friends I have and I’m so happy I know him.  He’s an older brother to me who can protect me from the cruel world!  And whenever I need him, he’s there for me.  Max can be annoying, but that’s part of his charm!  I have this journal entry I wrote maybe the day before our last at the dorms.  And apparently Max was talking about he wanted to enlist in the army and maybe model on the side.  This is why I love this kid.  He’s so weird and he doesn’t care about who thinks he’s weird. Well actually he does but that’s a WHOLE other story…

Thanks for being my friend MaP!  🙂

Day 9: A favorite picture of your best friend

I feel a little bit guilty writing right now.  For one I have a bunch of Calculus that is waiting to get done, and two, its technically not day 9 for 1 hour and 8 minutes.  But I’ve been literally itching to write this post for a long time and I want to give it the tender love and attention it deserves.  So I’m taking a study break, or procrastinating.  But it’s for a good cause.

My love language is quality time, and those closest to me have always been willing to give me the one thing that matters most to me in the entire world.  Their time.  Think about it, what can really matter more?  Time is the one thing you can never get more of, so if someone is willing to give me their time?  Well I don’t intend on wasting there’s.  On the other hand, I almost always cannot stand people who bail on me.  I actually count strikes if you cancel within the hour, its so bad.  I understand if you give me 24 hours…and if you happen to be lazy, but within the hour?  Come on now.

I’d highly recommend taking this quiz, not only is it actually really fun, but you can learn so much about yourself in the process.

You’re about to meet some of my best friends in the order of when I met them in my life.  I know you’re only supposed to have one best friend, but I don’t really care.  There are too many people to love in the world to put a limit on who I like.  And who really made that rule anyway?

1.  Sherin

I can’t think of a time in my life where Sherin wasn’t around and I find that really scary because I really can’t imagine my life without her.  She was the first person who slept over my house, and her house was probably where I spent most of my childhood.  My brother and her used to play this insane games where the vacuum cleaner was this evil monster we would have to outrun.  We had the time of our lives.  If you need something done, and done right, you ask Sherin to do it.  You won’t find someone more passionate and driven anywhere else.

2.  Christine

Christine was around since I was almost 4 but we didn’t become friends until we were 12 and best friends until even much longer later.  She’s a treasure.  And I mean this, not a lot of people can see it unless they take the time to know her.  But she’s so incredibly funny and beautiful.  I feel like being around her makes me funnier and makes me a better person.  She is the one person I can count on in any situation, and the one person I know will always be there in my life.  Because you don’t lose friends like this.  We’re opposites, but that’s why we get along so well.  I think she hates this picture, but I don’t know why.  She’s rocking that sari!

3.  Anitha

I choose two pictures because I couldn’t pick.  And also Anitha literally has thousands of pictures of herself, I was not about to narrow it down to just one picture.  Plus the second picture has my love Vinnie, and the first picture has Steena!  (I don’t actually know Steena but I love her because Anitha loves her) We met in college and ever since we’ve been inseparable.  She’s the reason why I love taking pictures even more and she never ceases to make me laugh.    We can’t go too long without seeing each other, that would be crazy.  And Anitha is really one of the most beautiful people I know.  I don’t just mean her outside appearance, anyone can see she’s physically beautiful, but it takes something much more special to be a beautiful person.  And she is just that.  I’m just really blessed to have her in my life.

4. Catherine

If there is one reason why I’m happy that I chose to dorm freshman year of college, it is this girl.  We bonded over this love of Arrested Development and since then we’ve been best friends.  Catherine is the sweetest girl I’ve ever met, and the one person I know not to hold a grudge.  She’s always open to new things and when I need her, she’s always there for me.  I can’t thank her enough for that.  Even when I don’t deserve it, she’s there for me.  One thing I’ve always loved about her is the fact that she’s always open to new experiences and new things.  Plus she’s pretty amazing at karaoke and jam sessions aren’t the same without her playing the guitar that I never use.  She accepts me as I am, and I love her for that.

So those are some of the most important people to me in my life.  I hope you can see why i love them so much.  🙂

Day 7: Favorite Movies

This was actually one of the posts I was least looking forward to writing about because I’m usually really picky about movies.  I never see movies when they actually come out in theaters.  The way I see it, I can get the book for free in the library and its twice as good!  I know, I’m so brown it’s bad.  But I’m the type of person who’s willing to spend money, but if its a crazy good deal to me in my mind.  $16 for a 2 hour movie?  Pshh read a book and get HOURS of entertainment for free!

But there are some movies I love and here they are listed below in no particular order:

Never been kissed

I love this movie SO very much and for so many reasons. For one, its basically the dream for any girl.  Go back to school a couple of years later, be insanely popular and get your teacher to fall in love with you.  JK that’s actually kind of crazy, but she somehow makes it cute.  This movie is incredibly simple and intricate and that’s what makes it beautiful. Josie is the girl everyone wants to win, she’s the girl who’s always lost and that’s what makes this movie amazing to me.

2.  The Little Mermaid

This is such a classic and I don’t think anything can really compete.  I always wanted to be Ariel when I was younger because she was the prettiest princess and she could sing.  Plus mermaids get to wear swim suits year round.  I now realize that being some what of a feminist a lot of the ideas on this movie belittle women…but I don’t care!  I love this movie because it was the first movie I ever saw.

3.  Slumdog millionaire

LOL I AM LIKE EVERY BROWN PERSON ALIVE.  And I will not deny that I cried like a baby for the entirety of this movie.  It was SO very good and I couldn’t help myself.  I will, however, not answer anyone else who asks me if India is really like this movie.  And I could care less if you want to “save ALL the slumdogs of India”!

4.  Three Idiots

“Pursue excellence and success will follow”

This movies is actually one of the few movies that changed my life.  I want to meet Amir Khan one day to tell him that he is fact AMAZING and that he made me proud of going for business and not medicine.  And if he wants to marry me because of my fantastic personality and glowing smile, it’s icing.  (Please don’t take me serious, not even a little bit, I’m not THIS insane) This movie helped me realize that being my best was so much more important than being the best and that everyone is unique and talented in their own way.
