135. A Snapshot Of My Year

I had my 21st birthday in January and my friends bought me a onesie.

Does it look like they’re struggling with my weight? 😛 

We had snow and everyone realised that I have terrible aim.

Asking for mercy.

James had a big birthday bash and I had a blast.

Sh-Shake it like a polaroid picture!

I completed numerous puzzles weekly with James and Shakira. This is one of my favourites.

HAIII SONIC

The whiteboard in the Maths Common Room at Imperial is always full of interesting doodles. One week someone decided to write out some Maths terms phonetically. 10 Cool Points for anyone who tries to decipher these (Shakira and James are excluded).

You don’t need to be a mathematician to get some of these.

Ahhh revision time for third year exams. Can’t say I enjoyed this but it turned out okay.

RIP my beloved headphones. You served me well.

Celebrating the end of exams in style.

Magic.

Driving to Gatwick at 5am and I saw a rainbow as the sun rose. A moment of peace.

This picture really doesn’t do it justice. God dammit bad quality Blackberry camera!

A serene afternoon.

Dad meets swan. Hi Dad, I’m swan.

I rarely go to arcades but one day me and my cousins literally spent all evening there. I have a weakness for car racing games!

I lost badly every time.

I completed an internship with Towers Watson and they decided to hire me. That’s been huge for me.

Outside the office.

I might be 21 but that says nothing about my maturity. Me and James in Canary Wharf.

SWAG.

Learnt how addictive Roulette is at Towers Watson boat party. We floated down the Thames and whatever its faults, there really is something special about London.

I attended my cousin’s wedding in Paris. I took the Eurostar for the first time.

The world is getting smaller.

I swear every photo, it looks like I have one foot.

Eid with my family (this is just a handful of us).

I got these for Eid- can’t think of a better present for a Harry Potter fan girl!

LOVED Tales of Beedle the Bard. Even his name is epic. BEEDLE.

We went to Ruislip Lido in the Summer. Clearly we weren’t the only ones who had that idea.

You’d think it was a beach.

I went to Go Ape which is basically an adventure playground for adults. Kinda perfect for me! The Tarzan leap was my favourite- that rush of adrenaline you feel when you jump of the edge!

Treetop adventure 🙂

Fresher’s Fair marked the return of university for my final year after an eventful Summer.

The Christmas lights on Oxford street.

The pretty lights make you forget how cold it is.

Attending my final Imperial’s Math Soc Christmas Dinner. The highlight was dancing like a complete idiot to some god awful songs with James. Boy! What a workout.

Shame about the food though.

And there you have it. Here’s to a bright 2014.

Merry Christmas y’all.

Over and Out!

119. Man I feel like shit.

Overnight my nose has turned into a never ending snot tap. My pockets are full of damp bogey filled tissues. It’s disgusting. I swear this happens to me every year; as soon as the weather changes, my body gives up on me.

My head is throbbing from the complete lack of sleep I got. Half of the night my nose was blocked and I had the attractive task of sleeping with my mouth open. The other half of the time my nose was dribbling so I had a bogey moustache.

You know how dentists have suction machine things to collect your spit, I desperately wanted one for my nose. I don’t care if it makes me look like Zoidberg. Alternatively somebody needs to invent a nose bib and shut up it’s not the same thing as a tissue.

Talking of tissues. I’ve used so many that my nose has turned red. I probably shouldn’t have used kitchen towels.

Ehhhhh. I hate being ill.

Over and Out!

19. The Mandatory Snow Post

ER MAH GAWD it’s snowingggg. Yes ladies and gentleman, it is that lovely time of the year again when white clumps of freezing water fall from the sky and accumulate on the ground so that I may lie down and make snow angels! There is absolutely something about snow that just turns everyone into 5 year old children. I just can’t help it. I’ve have GOT to taint fresh snow with my footprints. My hand just ITCHES to collect some snow and chuck it some poor unsuspecting person. I just HAVE to go outside and risk hypothermia to make a snowman.

Today was no exception. I had my M3T thing again today so I had to go visit a school. When I left the house, it wasn’t snowing and like an absolute idiot, I decided to wear my flats. Yeah I had to waddle the entire way home because my shoes had zero grip and my feet essentially felt like blocks of ice. Aliya 0. Nature 1.
