Life is full of choices. Like today, I had the choice between attending Yuri Belokon's lecture (he was talking about a subject on which my dissertation is based) or go to Pizza Express and chill out with my friends. And even though I chose the latter it doesn't mean I didn't learn anything, oh no.
I learnt that:
I don't like canneloni. Considering it contains cheese and white sauce I should have figured that out anyway. Those happen to be my most disliked foodstuffs.
One man is indeed capable of eating the leftovers of seven, yes seven, people.
Coffee Republic do THE best hot chocolate.
You shouldn't stand near an unattended suspicious package, realise it's there, look unintentionally guilty and then flee the scene hastily.
Today I sampled the delights of East London. It took all of five minutes. It's actually quite a hole No offence to any East Londoners.
I also listened to a friend talk about her wedding and her fiance for most of the day. Sweet couple.
Yes, yes, yeeeees! I'm temporarily back from the land of the stressed after having finished the poster I needed to do for university. Don't get me wrong, I love designing things, but when chemistry is involved it kind of takes the fun out of it a little. My poster looks very similar to a certain website we all know
Random photo: Sunset from my bedroom window.
Yellow cars. What's up with that?
Why is suicide illegal?
I'm hungry, cold and stressed out. Is that a good combination?
Why isn't anyone answering my text messages?
Why is everyone either getting married or having babies?
The pictures I took in Pakistan are back up if you missed them first time round.
The one time I need my PC for academic purposes and it packs up. Won't even start up. Anyone willing to have a lodger who can use your computer for the next five days?
My knee is nearing the giving up stage due to my taxi services and some 'click out of place - ouch - click back into place' I encountered a while ago.
The house looks like a building site. When will it all be done?

Random Useless Photo Day
Yes, they're useless but everyone likes pictures!
Remember a while ago I was going on about how decorating my room was a pain in the bum? Well here are the before and after pictures for you to digest.
"I would rather be a ghost, drifting by your side... as a condemned soul... than enter heaven without you."
Now if only that site had a wishlist facility.

RAMADAN: Rules & Regulations
It happens sometimes. I run out of things to write. I have nothing to say. No news to share. No pictures to show. That's where the Topic Blog comes in from now on. So here goes:
How are you different from the person you portray in your blogs to the person you are in real life? Which one is the real you?
I wouldn't say I was that different from how I come across. I want this site to reflect the real me. People I know often say they can imagine me saying the stuff that I write. Someone even said "You sound just like your blog!" Sometimes though I want to say things I wouldn't necessarily say in real life and though I could be braver because of the anonymity factor here I don't say them for whatever reason. That may well change very soon. I hope it does.
Stan describes the current situation in Afghanistan with the aid of rap?
My friend texted me today while I was at university to tell me of another plane crash in New York. I thought what I think most people did and my heart sank.
MeFi discussion here.
Let's elope from this world.
Why do I always need to drink water after eating chocolate?
This happened again last night but now I've had two extra sets made so that it won't happen again.
After watching that blasted "There are two reasons I am looking at you this way..." advert a pachillion times I'm finally going to watch Unbreakable. It better be worth it.
I am giving serious thought to eating your ice cream.
Should I have a discussion board here at SaimaSays.com aswell as/as opposed to the comments feature? Would you actively take part if there was one? Should we use it to discuss general topics and use the comments feature for the individual posts I make? What different forums/topics/subjects should be included in the discussion board? Would you be interested in being a moderator?
Sometimes I wish I'd done a degree in bookbinding instead of this horrible, stinky mess that is chemistry. But then I realise why I did it, so that I could go into forensics and that makes me feel aaaaaaall better. It really is a fascinating field of work with many different fields of expertise. Unfortunately there's not many jobs over here in Britain. It seems the best place for a forensics career is in America with places like the FBI, NYSP and Bureau of Forensic Services, California Dept of Justice. So maybe I'll be needing to hop over the pond sometime in the future. Until then, I'll just make believe.
Oh, I still © Josh.
It's kinda cold.....
I saw an interesting programme late last whilst trying to finish some university work. It was about clever clothing and how they hope to intergrate all this cool and funky stuff into our apparel. Like mp3 players and mobile phones. The size of the things was tiny and it was implemented by making the clothes out of a special fibre that conducted the necessary signals. Very cool stuff, Open University programmes are rather informative and I could definitely do with alternating heels on my shoes.
I always get a look of disgust when I admit that I love Mathematics. Especially algebra and calculus. Umm why?
Why a chemistry degree is bad for your health.
Me: My hand is itching and it feels like its burning.
Supervisor 1: What did you drop on it?
Me: I think nitric acid, but I'm not sure. Some acid.
Supervisor 1: Run it under the tap...for a long time.
Me: I have but it still kinda hurts.
Supervisor 2: What's up?
Supervisor 1: Saima dropped some acid on her....
Supervisor 2: Oooooh. That's such a beautiful ring you have on. So pretty! I like the stones in it.
Me: Oh you do, do you? Well I'll leave it in my will for you....when I die of ACID BURNS!!!!!
Supervisor 1: .......Do you have a watch I can have?
OK get your microphones out. How do you say the letter H? Soundfiles would be nice. I have a point to prove.
I used to think I had a fun loving image...until now. Apparently I'm scary, strict and intimidating. I put people in their place quickly and won't stand for any rudeness towards anyone. I can make someone feel very ickle with one sentence. And these are my friends telling me this! I'm lovely really! No, I really am, believe me! You'd better believe me or your life won't be worth li........oh.
Anyway I have a question. When are we bombing Northern Ireland?
I know it's a little early for New Year's resolutions but I've decided mine already. Not to judge people. Unless you've been in their exact same situation you don't know how you'd react, so don't judge them. Yeah.
Wrap myself up in,
This fake fur blanket that,
You gave me,
Only because it smells of you.
I want a Macaquarium! It's my birthday soon ya know!
SaimaSays.com is a year old today. Yay. Let's celebrate!
Wow, things look so much better in more than 16 colours. I'd almost forgotten that the web can be so pretty. I guess I'll be using the university computers more often...or get mine fixed, whatever.
