My FIRST American Football Game (vs. Michigan State)

One word describes it all. Awesome. I barely know the rules of the game, but I know some of the basics, for example, what a touchdown is. 6 points for a touchdown. 4 marvelous touchdowns throughout the final game of the season, against the Spartans of Michigan State. And the final score 49-18. Another win added to Joe Pa’s record. At this moment in time, I have yet to master the intricate terminologies of the complex game of American football. Nevertheless, my first American football game was fantastic!

It snowed frantically at the beginning of the game. It was very cold. I did not expect it to be that cold. It was -5 degrees, but the stadium was full, full of the loyal Penn State fans that brace themselves through the freezing weather. And everyone in Beaver Stadium is united as one. One big family cheering on their beloved team, the Nitanny Lions, to victory! Chanting, the infamous words, “We are Penn State”, which sends shivers down my spine every time it is enthusiastically chanted. Someone says “We are”, everyone else says, “Penn State”. It does not get any simpler than that. The proud feeling that overwhelms inside of me when I too chant along with everyone else cannot be described in words. You just have to experience it for yourself and immerse yourself as part of the crowd. No Penn State game is complete without the motivational tunes from the Penn State Blue Band. Nor is it complete without the stomping of feet to the highly addictive tune from Zombie Nation, one of the many signature songs of Penn State. However, I still need to go to an official white out one day! Perhaps, next season…

When people ask me why I chose Penn State, one of the main reasons is the football! Congratulations Penn State! We did it! Thank you for making my first football game a memorable one, one I will cherish forever. Pasadena, here we come! We are Penn State!

Wow. It's not easy to actually raise your hand in class and ask questions in class. It takes a lot of guts and confidence. That's what i didn't do. In classes. Something I should do more frequently in next semester's classes. These people have been doing it for years. But yeah. Today, was the last physics class, i mean recitation for this semester. And the instructor was asking a question about the negative velocity in a graph. I sorta whispered the answer and he was like, " did anyone say something?" " Was it you, hamizah?" Hahah. He knows my name! And I was like erm yeah.. well.. well i answered the question of course, it was right though... i think.. haha.. I feel like answering in class but there's this part of me that second guesses myself. Oh well.. only time will tell.. the first time i actually raised my question was not to asnwer a question but to ask one and that takes a lot of guts as well. I'm not the over the top, comfortable saying stuff out loud type. Call me shy!

Gotta start studying biology and physics so i really do have questions to ask on friday!

I need you. very very much. Really. I do.

Time is really running out. I don't know where to start. I haven't started on my term paper yet. Owh.. dear... well.. i was you-tubing as always..came across Who's line is it anyway?, the three headed broadway star game is simply the best. Anyway, i came across this song. I think it's an oldie but I heard Vonda Shepard's version. The lyrics... here goes..

Crying over you
Crying over you
When you said, "so long"
Left me standing all alone
Alone and crying
Crying, crying, crying, crying
It's hard to understand
I thought that I was over you
But it's true, oh so true
I love you even more
Than I did before
But darling what can I do?
For you don't love me
And I'll always be
crying over you
crying over you

Yes now you're gone
And from this moment on
I'll be crying,
crying, crying, crying
Yes crying
over you

This song is sang with feeling. The lyrics. Meaningful. Kinda.Or maybe i just stick to Pachelbel's Canon in D ... or wait for someone to sing Eric Clapton's " You look wonderful tonight" to me during a candlelight dinner.. haha.. yeah. rite.

Exams, mizah.. FOCUS!!!! where are you?!!

Chuck Bass, i love you....

OMG!!!~ i shouldn't be blogging rite now. But i so haf tooo.... i have a webassign homework due at 11.59... but i so half toooo... for chuck bass... i want to be there for u.. i love theeee~~ In the latest episode of Gossip Girl.. awesome...Bart Bass dies in a car crash and Chuck Bass was such in a fragile state. Blair wanted to be there for him, and finally she said it.. 3 WORDS, 8 LETTERS IS ALL IT TAKES... " I love you", she says... "Chuck, please don't go. We're Chuck and Blair, Blair and Chuck"."I love you". And Chuck simply says.. "That's too bad". Oh well... something like that... but that scene.. wow... that was touching.. Near the end of the episode, Chuck finally came to his senses and comes to see Blair, crying in her arms. He just lost his father you see, not fully understanding the reason, and was going to inherit millions from his father. They hug and cry. But the next morning, Chuck is gone and he leaves a note for his beloved Blair, 3 Sentences , yet so meaningful and powerful that can bring tears to my eyes~

I'm sorry for everything
You deserve better
Don't come looking for me
- Chuck

Heartbreaking. Very. A very emotional episode for Chuck Bass. But, he'll be okay. After all, he's Chuck Bass. And Chuck Bass will always be Chuck Bass.... Dan and Serena belong together but they're like two stupid lovers, "innamorati" during the times of comedia dell arte~ YES, the theatre 100 class i'm taking this semester is awesome and gone to my head.haha... I picked up my pottery today, well, i could find 2 pots and a mug. They turned out alright after all. Haha..this is a Lazzi, nuthing to do with the story. Anyway.. back to webassign ... times a ticking babe!!!

life.. life..finals..

Finals are coming up. I'm so excited about that. I have so much stuff to study and yet i am blogging..

Today was the last day of pottery class. Yes, i am taking pottery class. Loved it! I came late today but then I realized it was the last day of class and eveything had to be glazed up. Man, the class started at 7.30. I came at 9. I forgot to factor in that fine dining has a 3 course meal, appetizers, entrees and dessert. And that takes 2 hours. With all the cutlery like the setting you see on "Titanic", you start from the outside and make your way in. I had some vegetarian briyani which wasnt all that good. The Briyani in Tajutheen, PENANG is so much better. Plus, it was vegetarian. TOOO HEALTHY!! Dessert on the other hand was lovely. Kinda like a doughnut with syrup. Sweet! Thanks Al and Charmaine.So, when i finally got to pottery class. everyone was done with their glazing. Well, almost. But Lily, my instructor stayed with me all through 10.30. Wow.. she did it with a smile on her face. I'm always the last to finish in class because you have all the clearing up to do and stuff.. but she waited. So, i got like an hour and a half of glazing. Can't wait to see the finished products, fruits of my labor!

Ok.. next post will be on black friday.. when finals are done. I gotta get studying A.S.AP! WISH ME LUCK =p

"move on"... i tell myself...

Moving on. It's not as easy as it sounds. I might not have been "there" but i kinda have a rough idea what its all about. Just needing someone to be there, to understand, to motivate, to care and to just say to you when things get rough, that everything is going to be okay. How an earth do you find your soulmate? Someone to talk to, share everything with, travel and see the world with. yeah, my prince charming, my star quaterback.. where for art thou? this emotional road in life needs a companion...wherever you are.. i'm waiting. Sounds cheesy huh? Haha.. Oh well.. watever~ =)
