First Experience as a Chaperone

So i chaperoned (for the first time ever – and boy did it make me feel old) a trip to Six Flags for one of my old teachers (Ms. Uyola) from high school today. It was interesting, to say the least.

The immaturity level of a lot of the students reminded me of yet another good reason why i’m SO glad i’m not in high school anymore… but overall, they were okay.

Earlier in the morning, i got to see and talk to one of my math teachers from high school (Mrs. Downey) who i love! She’s genuinely one of the nicest teachers (and person) i have come across.

It was so weird to be back at the school after two years though! (i graduated three years ago – in 2006 – but went back two years ago to talk to seniors about college, which i’ll be doing again next month – last year i was busy with the internship). Most of the teachers are new now … and even the environment was so different! it was SO laid back! until two years ago, we had to sign in, and wear “visitor” stickers identifying us as guests… but today, i stopped at the front office, and at the secretary’s office across the hall… asked in both places… and found out i could just go ahead and go in… the lack of security was appalling.

P.S. I’m three exams and six days away from summer vacation!

Parent’s 25th Wedding Anniversary Party

This past Saturday night, my brothers and I had invited some family over (around 60 people came) for a dinner party to celebrate our parent’s silver jubilee (which is actually today).

My goodness, planning a party is sooo much work, but so worth it – mostly everything turned out great and everyone had a lot of fun. The food was great, and so was the cake! The whole weekend turned out to be a family filled weekend and I love when that happens!

Congratulations Abu and Ami on your 25th Wedding Anniversary! Inshallah, you are blessed with MANY more. I pray for a long, happy, and blessed life together for the both of you.

Love you lots,

On Spring Break… FINALLY!

I just submitted my last paper and now i’m on spring break! I know it’s just going to fly by… so I definitely have to enjoy it. Tomorrow night, my brothers and I have invited some of our family over to help celebrate our parent’s 25th Wedding Anniversary (their actually anniversary is in the middle of next week)… so that should be a lot of fun!
