Ten years ago
– i was 12, and i thought i was in love with one of my brothers friends
– i thought my family was “dysfunctional”
– i thought boy bands were cool, life could not go on without “channel V”
– i didn’t know what my goals in life were
– i realized i wanted to visit india
– i lived in faisalabad, and was the only girl in the city who wore jeans everywhere

5 years ago
– i had moved to islamabad and still wore jeans everywhere, as did 70% of the female student population at my school
– i was still thinking about my brothers friend
– my family was still “dysfunctional”
– boy bands were just lame, MTV was in and replaced Channel V as ” the channel”
– i still wanted to go to india
– i was thinking about my future
– i lost one of my best friends because of one stupid arguement.

Last one year
– i know where i want to be 20 years from now, and no – i don’t want to be “rich”!
– my brothers friend is a thing of the past, he’s also just not as cool anymore!
– i realized that i have an amazingly cool family
– i joined AIESEC
– i’ve been to india thrice
– the best friend i’d had a fight with finally talked to me.
– i now live in lahore, still wear jeans everywhere.

Yesterday (Monday)
– i was in karachi, and wearing jeans 🙂

    Keep an eye out for AOE III. The official website has graphics that will BLOW YOUR MIND!!! Of course to play it, you need a PC with specs that will blow a hole in your bank account. Bill Gates does it again with WINTEL! 🙂
