Double Shawarma Combo (february + march wrappers)

Hey girl hey. And boy.

It’s been 2 months since I last made a wrap-up post and y’all know I’m not going to miss that three year streak. So much has happened over the last two months and there was no way I thought two months ago that coronavirus would turn out the way it did. We’re going to go back in time a bit and I’ll give you an update on semester 2 classes and how quarantine is going. And yes, I called this a double shawarma combo because I always thought of a shawarma wrap every time I read wrap-up’s and I miss shawarma so here we are. 😂 Okay as usual, here’s my last wrapper, skim through to what interests you and let’s get starteddd.


 

School

My first class this semester was cooking and before you all give up on my cooking skills, I actually turned out pretty good. Like yeah, I did spill flour everywhere and screamed every two seconds when we started frying oil but no problem.The first day consisted of me getting to know the person beside me because I was trying to pull off the whole “if you’re not confident on the first day, you’ll never be confident at all” and we tried a granola bar recipe. The catch was that our teacher gave us blops and blips as measurements and we had to figure it out. Bro when I say our group broke out into ten million arguments and our gronala bars ended up not in tact and like someone threw up – I’m not kidding. 😂 Every other group had fancy chocolate bars and I was here like umm mine looks like cereal. So let’s just say I didn’t start on the right foot. 😂

this was me trynna lighten up the cooking group beef

Some days are really good though and some days are terrifyinggg. Like one time we made potato pancakes and I had to flip them over in oil and bro hot oil drops would start jumping. And the other time we were assigned brownies and I had to come downstairs from my period 2 class to tell my teacher that the brownies were still in the oven. So yeah, I came super close to starting fires but it’s all good. 😂 Oh and every week, a girl from the DE program (developmental education) would join our group and her cooking skills are through the roof. Like I’m not sure why people treat disabled kids like they can’t do anything when in fact our DE partner legit carries the team and knows all secrets behind cooking. I wouldn’t be able to survive without her honestly.

My girlfriend first time cooking for me.. FAIL #ReactionGifs

My other periods are accounting, science and history. Accounting makes me lose brain cells and at some point, I considered it but I can’t imagine typing in numbers the whole day. Like sure, I might be good with numbers but it’s too much routine for me. At one point, I just sat down with my accounting teacher and ranted about what career I should do. 😂 Oh and I’m taking a higher grade class so I’m in class with a lot of friends from clubs I’m in so accounting is also social.

i’m kidding he didn’t tell me that haha

History on the other hand had me losing every brain cell ever. *D:* I don’t sit beside anyone and I’m just really isolated from the class. Don’t get me wrong, I love history – but lack of explanation and boring documentaries are not my learning style. I will say though – I think I cried every other day in that class because those world war one movies are sooo emotional. Or maybe I’m just too sensitive but anyways. 😂 Science is boring but I love my teacher and my tablemates so it ends up really fun. I selected my courses for next year and definitely won’t be taking a science route. It was a hard decision but I’m not that observational or passionate about chemical equations lol. Every time we do a lab, I do the writing and my classmates do the experiment because I will NOT come close to that Bunsen burner.

And that’s all for coursework! As for extracurriculars, we launched the multicultural club and 50 people came to the first meeting it was insane! We had a hijab day which was really fun and the religion teacher asked me to present in her class about the hijab and I was shook. I also joined a relay for life committee and wrote a math contest (lost many brain cells there but the result was way better than I expected 😂). We did mental health, valentines and culture initiatives for student council and I just got crazy busy. But now, every thing is cancelled and not gonna lie, I do feel some commitment relief. It really put into perspective how things can change in a split second.


 

Life

So much happened obviously but quick update about how the g & h keyboard key stopped working on my chromebook and I don’t know why it does that? And yesterday it worked again but today it stopped so if anyone went through something similar, let me know. 😂

At the beginning of the month, we accidentally ordered Little Ceasers because we wanted to ask about pricing and they were like “okay sounds good it’ll be ready in 15 minutes” like ahh. 😂 My mom drove us and there was 10 minutes of traffic so we all lost braincells. And guess what?

Take a look at this photo. They must have taken it with a MICROSCOPE. I thought the thing under it was a cutting board but no it was a small paper bag so there we were, with legit 1 inch garlic bread sticks. A sad day indeed but this is why a sis needs to learn how to cook. 😂

During February, I went to a youth conference and it was super fun!! Less fun than last year but I found it really beneficial as well and I actually met a mentor through it. She’s a couple years older than me but you know when you see someone and just get this vibe of like dang I want to be like them? That day, there was a workshop on mentorship and I was like that’s it we’re getting that girl to be my mentor. So I asked her and she actually agreed. And now we meet (now call) every week to talk about issues and ways we can better our relationship with God. She’s my spiritual therapist I’m not even kidding. And it’s actually been really helpful so if you’re struggling with ANYTHING, get yourself a mentor.

On my way to the meet my mentor, I wanted to take the bus because I wanted to become more eco-friendly but y’all Google Maps LIED to me. 😂 They told me the bus stop that took me to Tim’s was somewhere and turns out it was a completely different bus stop. So I ended up missing the bus and my dad just drove me. I really want to try transit but it’s a crazy hassle in Canada. Everyone in European countries better give us tips in the comments rn. 😂

I had a few meetings w/ clubs and planning and none of that will be happening but I’m honestly really enjoying quarantine. I bought like 7 notebooks and I’ve been taking courses for psychology and religion. I separated my day into input and output so I’d listen to lectures and take notes in the morning and then do chores and write in the afternoon. It’s been working pretty well and it’s been really uplifting for me to spend time with family and doing the things I love. I’ve also been cleaning and combing my hair more so I honestly don’t mind this. However, I do want it to be over soon because it’s really sad what’s happening with everyone else and those affected.

How’s quarantine with everyone?

Movies I Watched

LITTLE WOMEN - Official Trailer (HD) - YouTube We Were Children (2012) - IMDb

Little Women was sooo good y’all I cried like twice. I watched We Were Children too and it was super sad and disturbing what happened to indigenous kids in residential schools so I definitely recommend it! I will say to be careful when showing this to kids because it does discuss rape and other mature matters. OH and I watched some of The Boy with the Striped Pyjamas and that was SUPER sad but I always have to keep the history of what the Holocaust survivors did to Palestinians afterwards so I couldn’t tear up over it. All of these movies are sad whattt but Little Women was really empowering.

I read one book and a half so thank you for the applause. Okay but does anyone have tips on how to read non-fiction books without falling asleep? These two are SO well written but I can’t binge-read them like I would with fiction books. America explain!

    -Little Women was AMAZING. The only reason I didn’t cry was bc I was in the theater with some friends I didn’t know really well and I didn’t want to break down bawling in front of them. But I was so close. It was so good and I want to purchase it on dvd now 🙂
    -That’s so cool that you got a mentor! Ahhh I need to find one!
    -Haha accidentally ordering Little Caesars is definitely something I would do 😉 I get such bad anxiety ordering food, ack its terrifying 😂
    -History is hard. Wait, let me rephrase that- all school is hard. I’m dying over here but my last day is may 10th so IM ALMOST THEREEEE

    Ohh Bayy! Word War movies, books EVERYTHING makes me tear up. History was really good in class for me, but not during exams mainly because I have the memory span of a goldfish.
    The multicultural club sounds so cool!! Damn that bow hijab is awesome❤
    I haven’t watched Little Women yet, but this makes me eager to do so. Also because of such good actors in the movie. Quarantine is crazy serious here in UAE, like a girl from my year got coronavirus a month back, and all schools immediately snapped shut. Online school take it’s toll on my eyes😂 So true, I want this to get over quick.
    Great post!❤

      Online schooling is definitely taking an enormous toll on my eyes. After quarantine, I think I will go from wearing glasses part time to all day long.

    I really want to watch Little Women but here in the US it’s not on Netflix or any other streaming networks I own:( I’m glad you liked it though and I can’t wait to watch it!
    I couldn’t agree more! I can NEVER binge non- fiction books. I can read a few and than I’m done for the the rest of the year😂I don’t have any tips for them but, sometimes reading nonfiction autobiography or biographies feel more like fiction because they are telling the story of a person ( look at me trying to find hacks).
    Immersion is the best way to learn a language so that’s a good idea. I’m learning Spanish in school but I don’t know any videos to watch. If I can recommend Les Malheurs de Sophie( it should be on YouTube) as a another French resource that is fun to watch.
    This was such a fun post to read and it’s sounds like you had an eventful month! Having a mentor sounds very cool and a great guidance for your faith. Hahah, I think I may need one of those ….

      Oh nooo! 😦 I watched it in the theatre but I’m not sure if it’s out on streaming yet here in Canada. Ahhh thank you so much for the tips!! Life Hacks with Lucy should be a series I’m telling you. 😂 And yess calliou is going well and I pick up on things here and there but oml the same episode keeps coming up over and over again when I watch live and I’m doooone. it’s probably because I open calliou at 7 am and that episode is always there at that timing but oh well repetition helps me pick up on more words. Ah tysm for the recommendation I’ll check it out soon!

      Thank you so much for reading!! Ah it really is and definitely reach out for any youth leaders or people who stand out to you in the community. Tysmmm for your comment! ❤

    you make school sound so fun I almost start to forget what its really like XD
    ooooh how was Dale Carnegie’s book? my cousin lent it to me like, a month back, so now I’m hiding from him( cant let him know I haven’t touched it XD)
    *inhale* that bow hijab….its..its AMAZING!!!!!
    (I am officially embarrassed by the fact that I just throw (I mean wrap) my hijab on two seconds before leaving for school and stick a pin in somewhere)
    E-learning is killing me, like I need to communicate with body language, ya know? its frustrating to not be with the class itself (also my poor eyes and ears 😦 )
    also that title tho, it was THE perfect click-bait, you roped me in with it faster than you can say “extra pickles”
    waaaa i miss the street food shawarma, home-made is never quite the same (insert potent grief)
    that was soo fun to read, Bay!!!

      Oh my 😂😂
      It’s REALLY good! I only read half because I was procrastinating and had to return it to the library but I found it very engaging and it had examples after examples to make it stick in your head. Try one chapter at least and you will love it.
      Ahhh tysmmm!! ❤ Dudee I wish I can be like you and just wrap it real quick then leave the house. I'm embarrassed that I actually take 4-8 minutes just standing there looking for patterns and trynna adjust the hijab to work. Like no more – I just want to do something quick and leave the house. 😂 SAAAAME! I lost too many brain cells. And ah poor eyes. 😂 I only spent like 5 hours this week because it was the first but soon, my eyes will burn out.
      HAHAHA OMG 😂😂
      Same omg!! :((((((
      Tysm for reading and commenting ahh <3!

    I loved this so much Bay, your wrappers are definitely so fun and interesting to read! 💕 Weird rant: I’m actually really appreciating the whole ‘Monday is my favourite day f the week’ lately because first of all I get to stay at home and don’t have school, but sometimes it’s ice to have that fresh start ☀️ With everything going n it’s nice to start a new week, set some goals and get stuff done! Your cooking class sounds HILARIOUS, I love cooking so much so I wold have loved to be there 🥘 I’m so happy life is going good for you to! WE defo fee the same about quarantine! In this whole quarantine thing I’m actually earning Italian 😂 I decorated a really nice book for it so fingers crossed I can learn quite a lot! 😊 It’s always been my dream to do it so why not?! My craving has been iced coffee 🥤and m favourite thing to do has been cleaning too! I’ve been helping around the house but ain’t trying to spring clean my room at least once a week, which has been super fun and nice to do these sorts f things that I wouldn’t usually do if life was normal 😂 Though I do hope it does go back to normal soon as all the awful things that are happening around the world make me sad 😔 Lovely post Bay and will look forward to April wrappers! xx

        No worries Bay!! 💕 Yes it’s so weird that at the moment I’ve come to really like them 😂 It’s just the whole idea of a ‘fresh start’ you know? Paha, what about the pizza and pasta? 🍕😂 Same! It really helps to have a nice notebook to do your work in, instead of boring plain coloured ones! A definite yes to cleaning alllll the way! Anytime Bay (see I’m a poet but I didn’t know it 😂)xx
