Not Ready For Goodbye...

Next week is the final episode of One Tree Hill ever! Although I am very excited to see how it all ends, I am not ready to say goodbye to this amazing show (even though I have all seasons on DVD and planning to buy season 9 as soon as it's out).

Anyway, I have this habit of ruining the surprises of this final season by reading spoilers online...I decided not to do that for this episode, because I want to be surprised....unlike previous episodes, where I kind of knew or had an idea of what was going to happen....thank you spoilers (I'm being sarcastic here!). Although some things managed to surprise me!

Instead, what I've decided to do is to write down, on a piece of paper, what I think will happen in the finale. And after the episode is over, I will cross off the things that I got right!

Season 9 has been the best season ever of One Tree Hill...although all previous eight seasons have been amazing as well. But seriously, during season 9, there were some moments where I fel…

The Dinner Party

Tonight, one of my close high school friends, who I've known for 20 years & her husband invited me and two of my close high school friends over for dinner at their house. It was such a lovely evening! We spent it joking, and just talking about random things...including an argument about what existed first; marketing or engineering, which is still in debate at the moment...

Anyway, we were sitting around the dinner table, eating the amazing food my friend prepared, and suddenly we started exchanging food recipes...at that exact moment we all started laughing and wondering the same thing..."when did we grow up and started talking about food recipes?!". So, ok, now we're all 25-26 years old, but I remember us 10 years ago, we used to talk about mindless things, and worry about nothing but high school stuff...and now we're all grown up. We all have jobs, one of my friends is married and the other is engaged...but when we all get together, we remember the old days…

Another Random Memory

It seems random memories are popping into my mind at totally random times...today, as I was waiting for the valet to get my car at the mall this memory suddenly crossed my mind, for no reason at all.....

It was May 2005 when I was a freshman at university. I was sitting in my dorm room with my roommate and one of our friends waiting to register for sophomore year's classes. Before the registration period, we had to meet our advisers to discuss the courses we're going to take, check if everything is fine for the current year before registering for next year's classes and to get the PIN required for registration.
Anyway, I did all those things and I got my PIN from my adviser, and everything was fine. I was just sitting my dorm room waiting for the clock to strike 3pm so I can register for my courses.

It was 3 pm...time for registration...I tried to enter my PIN code, but it didn't work! I tried it again and again and again but with no luck. I was freaking out because I …

A Random Memory...

This is just a random memory from 2006...

It was the summer of 2006, when a close family friend of mine and I decided to go to Manhattan for the evening. So I decided to go in style! I was wearing dark jeans, with baby blue top and high heels. We were going by train because we wanted to spend the afternoon walking in the city. My friend kept telling me to change my shoes and wear flats, but I didn’t listen and insisted on wearing heels. Like I said, we were going by train, and the train station is not so far from her New Jersey beach house, so we decided to walk to the station. When we realized that we might miss the train we started running, and me being in heels, I was practically crying the whole way to the station. Once we reached the station (on time), we boarded the train and I took a good look at my feet to find that some blisters had already started forming! And the whole way to Manhattan, my friend kept telling me “I told you to change your shoes”.
The minute we reached Penn…

Life

I was going through some old notebooks from 10-15 years ago, and I found something that I wrote about life. I wrote this over 10 years ago and I thought I'd share it with you.
So here it is....

Life!
It's something you have to do. It may, sometimes, seem meaningless, while at other times, it may seem everything to you.
It's a path you must walk. An adventure with so many hidden obstacles and choices that leads you to destined outcomes. It's a journey that leads to fate. Your own destiny is tied up to life, just as life is tied up to your own destiny, that's written in the stars.


It may seem long, but don't be fooled. Days and years could measure life, but seconds measure it more accurately. One moment could change your life, but that doesn't mean that it has changed your destiny or fate, because your fate outlines your life plan, while the moments play its part to fulfill your life script.


You must capture every moment in your life, every opportunity, and make t…

The Parties Continue

2012 seems to be the year of the parties! And I'm glad...it's better than the horrible, depressing 2011... One of my close high school friends got engaged and yesterday was her engagement party. It was being held at the ballroom of one of the major 5* hotels in town. It was such a fun night!
I wore a beautiful long green strapless dress with heels (finally I discovered that I have heels that I can walk and dance in!). My hair was styled in a wavy half updo and I did my own make up.
The party was amazing! We spent the entire night on the dance floor, dancing the night away! It was such an amazing night...
Her wedding is coming up in  a few months, and I'm looking forward to that!

Don't Wave At Strangers

I can't help but put myself in certain situations where I feel like a compete idiot afterwards....

So please feel free to laugh...

Today I was crossing the street to my house when suddenly a car that looks exactly like my uncle's car comes down the street. So the car slowed down, and flashed it's lights...at that moment, I was pretty sure it was my uncle...so I decided to wave at the car. The person in the car waved back and kept on driving...that was when I realized it was not my uncle, but a complete stranger....

I felt like a complete idiot in that moment, but I was relived I didn't decide to joke around and jump in front of the car when I thought it was my uncle... I would have either gotten myself killed or yelled at by  a total stranger...

A Drive In The Sun...

For the past few days, the weather has been amazing! Today, it really feels like spring...the sun is shining, it's warm outside, clear blue sky, and most importantly...quiet! The only thing I could hear right now is the chirping of the birds outside my window.
I woke up this morning and decided to do something that I haven't done in almost a year....I went for a drive! Instead of lying in bed till noon like I usually do, I got into my car, opened the sunroof, turned up the radio and drove slowly to nowhere... It felt great...I was driving aimlessly, with warm fresh air coming from the sunroof of my car, and my favorite songs blasting through the speakers...The scenery was great, the hills on the side of the highway were covered in green grass and spring flowers..
I found myself near Starbucks, so I decided to pull into the drive-thru, order a cold Caramel Mocha with extra caramel, and continue my drive, taking a different road on the way back....
I love days like these...I hav…

I Miss You...

For the past few days, I've been feeling really down...It has been almost 9 months since my dad passed away, and it's still really hard for me to accept that he's gone.
Sometimes I lie in bed, hoping that all of this is just a really bad nightmare and I'm going to wake up from it soon, but then I realize that it's real, and I breakdown all over again...

I don't know if things will ever get better...Will I ever stop crying myself to sleep? Will I ever be able to look at a picture of him again without crying? Will I ever think about him without crying? Will I get through writing this post right now without crying? I can't even see the letters on my keyboard or the screen through my tears...

I miss him so much!

I miss him telling me to be careful when I'm driving in rainy weather....I miss sitting with him and talking about everything....I miss hearing him tell me about his days in college....I miss him giving me work related advice....I miss him telling …
