hey yall

did yall see the videos mrs.rea was showing us? did she find drop it like a fob, or curry n rice girl? i liked the scarecrow one. that was funny. i just wanna stay in and SLEEP tmw. i really dont wanna go, but of course, most asian parents put math first. o that reminds me, the hoover math team sell fruit to raise money, and swaroop wrote this like letter and put it on the door and it was like "to indians the most important thing is academic success. so help my academic succes by buying my fruit!" he wrote more and it was funny, i bet he got help from suma aunty, his mom. anyways, do we have living history day on thursday? if so, another 2 hours wasted...

u know the history project thingy was like all me. and haley just agreed with everything i said, like,

me: "how a/b a travel guide?"
her smiling: "yea that sound cool!"
me: "how a/b a story a/b...."
her: yea! that would be cool!"
me: going on forever like this
her: saying yea! that sounds cool! for everything
me: finally was like "how a/b we do nothing, and get a bad grade?"
her: "yea that sounds cool! o wait, no, maybe, ok,...can u repeat the question?"
me: rolling my eyes...

omg wallace state...wat to talk about...

i HATED IT!! well, u prb wouldnt hate it if u were in a different bus, but when u have joann and jenny together not a good combo. they would not stop singing stacys mom, the stupidest and oldest song ever, its soo 3 years ago. and then theo would shout from infront of me "SHUT UP!" and joann would do her stupid comebaks of "ur mom needs to shut up" that too, my friend is so 3 years ago. dont get me started about everybody else. but all of them put together were not as bad as joann and jenny singing stacy's mom. i agreed with theo though, it does make them sound lesbian. i think they relized that, but they apparently like being gay. o and the idoits trying to kill wie? even more stupid. and i also agree with mrs.chilten joann and wie would not stop FLIRTING! when we were coming out of arbys, sunny was like "eww...look, its a circle of flirting" all the guys and girls all huddled up...is yes indeed flirting. me, julie, sunny, and angela were aloof though; id rather not affiliate my self with them. that would be emberssing. and sushma, she really needs some anger managment or something. it would really help the people around her. and wat is the obsessment of ipod nano? i kno its cool and tiny and an ipod, but u dont have to yell and scream for it so johnny could let u look at it. its just a smaller mp3. get over it. i really dont care if yall are reading this, so dont bother being mad at me, or telling me im lying, or any of that stuff. i know im right, and it wouldnt make a differance if u yelled at me, or called me a liar or wat ever. i dont care about ur opinions. (not to sound mean)

jing u r soooo lucky for not coming...i wish i played soccer...but then again i suck at it...

wat ever happened to dq?

those stories that mrs.brock told us really freaked me out. like wehn she was talking about that guy and that lady and mike, and when she demonstrated, freaky... that reminds me of my freaky ghost story. ok. here goes. do yall know the india house in h'ville? anyways, theres this house there that belonged to the indian mayor. so when he died he gave it to the indians for there parties. i luv parties. random fact. anyways, there is this room where something like he had a heart atack there or something happened to him in that room. well akaash told me the electricity doesnt work in there, and the candles always gets blown out by this strange supernaturel force. oooooo! everybodys to scared to go in there so nobodys been in there for a year. dont those kinda rooms scare u abit. u kno the ones that have been empty for days. well, akaash was being all brave and stuff, and stuck his hand in there. i took a picture of it (anybody who knows me knows i luv my camara). so when we got home and i put them on the computer, and was looking through them. in that pic, there are some silvery orb like things floating around. back then i was obsessed with travel channel. and they had this special on some jail with ghosts. they said, when u take a picture sometimes some silvery orbs would come in the pic, but u cant see them there, only in the pic. so i was like OMG OMG!! THE MAYORS GHOST IS HAUNTING THE PARTIES!! it just freaked me out. he also told me that there were these maid like people who cleaned up there. well, one day they resigned and the next the place was stripped. like they had this huge big screen tv and it was gone. everything valuable was gone. those kinda places scared me too. so i just pretty much stayed outside the whole time, while they blasted hum dil chucke sanaam. im still freaked out that i was that close.

math team is soooooo stupid. i seriosly feel like quitting, but my parents said no, ur staying. gah....

garba was sooooo awesome, and if u wanta hear about it check out my indian friends ljs, and u would know, so there is no point of me talking any more
