Growing up

We all know that as the years pass, we change in ways that we never thought possible or probable. We mature and we learn how to deal with difficult issues and people. We gain knowledge and wisdom. An event took place today that made me realize just how profoundly we can change. I bought a Chunky Kit Kat today, just because I thought it was time to try something new instead of the old 4 stick Kit Kat. To my surprise, the Chunky Kit Kat (which I thought would be mediocre at best) was actually quite good. And I thought to myself, what a wonderful worrrrld. I mean, I thought to myself: wow, if I hadn't tried this bar, I would have been stuck eating the same old Kit Kat, and that was a scary, scary thought. So I am now on a journey to expand my experiences in order to develop what we call wisdom. On this journey, as perilous as it may be, I must be steadfast. I must have the courage to try new things, whether that be a new brand of chips or chocolate or maybe even cola. Only time will tell. Growing up. It's something you can measure Growing up it happens everyday Being young is something you can treasure But life is good when you're growing up Life is good when you're growing up... -Care Bears

Ok, if you're trying new chips ...

YOU MUST TRY the new SWEET CHILLI (I think that's what it's called)Doritos. Seriously. They are so freakin' good.

Assalaamu Alaikum :)

Gimme a break! Gimme a break! Break me off a piece of that, Kit! Kat! Bar!

*ehem*

Good for you! I need to learn a thing or two and give "change" a try. I don't work well with change :S

With all that chocolate, chips and cola, just don't start growing horizontally.

Big hug...since it says you miss your mom.:) Another interesting fact you should know....the kitkat bars in the States aren't even half as good as they are in Canada...sigh..you'd think all kinds of chocolate would be the same but it just ain't. I took one bite and was like ew gross, need to go back to T.O. and get me some kk bars.

I think you should try Curry chips. Lays has a new flavour, it taste kind of weird, but you might like it you never know!

Very few people can acctually quote Care Bears, I am really proud that you can! Care Bear power!

Asmaa said...

Sara, I tried those chips and I'm hooked :D

Squeeky, oh you'll get used to change when you're forced into it :S

Umar, oh shush. I still like lettuce.

Fro, yeah Kit Kat in the States is pretty nasty. Those uncivilized fiends!

Tasneem, I actually tried curry chips a while ago and they're kind of nasty :D I love care bears! Come on...beastly...darkheart...my favourite bear was dopey. Oh wait, that's from Snow White.

Love,
Your friendly neighbourhood Asmaa

Nauman said...

I still have to try those chips. :(

Asmaa is clearly evolving to a higher plateau thanks to her willingness to try new forms of chocolate and what-not... this is truly a momentous day. :)

Sadaf said...

LOL..I loved how you went from serious to silly..haha..I'm just kidding. It's true. It is something I tell my 9 year old brother all the time.

I was wondering how come you started so serious, and I was like the only post that is quite serious is the terrorism one who wrote about, and your trip to the states, and I was like hmm..maybe this is another one, but then I remember hey this is Asmaa.:D

Anyhow, I really had fun yesterday and may Allah help you do really well on the exam inshAllah. ameen.

Assalamu aleikum Asm,

Hands down the best chocolate "bar" is Milka's Schoko and Keks, literally "chocolate and biscuit"; too bad you have to go to Europe to get it (*sob!*)

(P.S.: Sorry haven't been around Asm; stuff's been slightly crazy :) Thus, I am due for another fix. Get crackin'.)

chocolate is good :D

Asmaa said...

Nauman, you learned your sarcasm from me.

Sadaf, I started the post on a serious note because that makes it funnier when I randomly become silly afterwards. It's the shock effect. It's even more shocking to people when they see serious posts from me. I feel that my next post will be serious. We'll see. I hope you do well on the exam too. I'm really behind in studying :S

Olde, I'll take your word for it. Next time I'm in Europe, I'll pick one up ;)

Brotherhood, air is good to breathe.

Asmaa, believe me, this is not what I call growing up.

I would love to marry that Kit Kat

Care Bears have the best messages :)

You're really desperate, anonymous. Nobody wants to marry KitKat.
