It has been a LONG while. The bad news is that nothing has changed, vision-wise, since I blogged last. I am allowed to wear my contacts again but have been advised to limit myself to an as-needed basis just to make sure my left eye will qualify for corneal cross lining surgery in December. I could have the surgery earlier but it will interfere with school.


The more I think about it though, maybe I will get it earlier so that I am able to wear my contact lenses again by the time finals roll around. I think it will be more convenient to get it done in September or November and suffer a week of discomfort then rather than wait until December. I’m not very sure what to do. My 3 month post-op appointment is in the first week of September and everything will most likely be decided then.

But since it’s my birthday in HALF AN HOUR, I really wanted to post here. I thought it’d be a meaningful way to re-enter my blog and explain some things. The blogging bug has been hitting me hard recently and I’ve been wanting to blog more and more. Hopefully, my enthusiasm will last a little bit longer this time.

And I’ve just been SPOILED SILLY with birthday presents from my friends and family, so I love you all for that. Thank you so much 🙂 I’m going to put up a post with some pictures and bragging shortly. Like after I cut my cake and have my little birthday dinner soiree tomorrow. It shall be fun!

I’m going to be 22. If anybody plays the Taylor Swift song, I’ll not speak to them. So watch out. Play me less overrated birthday songs instead 🙂



Today, I am 21

That’s right, my lovely followers. Today, Controlled Derangement turned 21. Today, I turned 21!

I’m very excited, of course, but need to make a trip to the DMV and have a better picture taken for my 21+ ID. This mug shot simply will not do. I started the day off with birthday cake. Some of the icing OBVIOUSLY made it to my face. What good are brothers if it doesn’t, huh?

After that, I was up until ~2ish because I had family over (It was awesome. I love big family gatherings like this. I don’t think I can fathom coming from a smaller family…this is just so much better)

Currently, by the way, I am blasting (Okay, playing) a birthday playlist at work haha. It’s fairly dead and I was watching Olympics highlights earlier but now I’m actually just listening to songs about birthdays and typing up this post. I think I left Birthday Sex on repeat for about half an hour. Oops.

This post is very scattered. It’s nearly 2PM and I definitely opened this up at 11. I keep getting phone  calls and people walking in and then I went on my lunch break so…oops!

BUT WOW GUYS, PRYANKA’S 21 YEARS OLD. That’s still young but finally old enough that I am an adult. An adult. Doesn’t roll off the tongue just yet. Maybe later, when I go out with friends and purhase my first legal drink, things will be different? Who knows.

I started writing this post as a response to my bestest bestest best friend. My biffle, Nabila, posted a happy birthday letter to me right here. I’ll post one right back at her but you’ll all have to wait a little bit longer to read that. Next post ❤

Well, this entire post was a fail…it’s already 4:45. How did the time fly by so quickly? I’ll just get down to it and not let myself get any more distracted.

Dear Nabila,

Thank you so much for the letter/blog post you wrote for me!! I am very very sorry – I have not been easy to get in touch with and have disappeared like I tend to do over the summer. Not entirely disappeared…but we’re just not on the same online mediums I think.

Let me just let you know now – I go on Skype most nights, and I also check my FB for notifications prodigiously, as it is how I communicate with the nail bloggers and nail polish community in addition to check on NYU Club updates. And also just talk to people in general. Honestly that’s the one site I’m active on…I have notifications automatically sent to my phone over WiFi or Data because FB is a crucial means of communication.

I just wanted to share something with you since you can’t see my FB status about it…when I made my first color, Accidentally Amazing (I blogged about it a few times on Nail Sparks*), I made 5 bottles of it and sent them out to people for free in exchange for their honest opinions, pictures, and reviews.

Well the first person just posted her review for me right over here, and I wanted to share it with you, like I said. Look here for the review – http://thepolishedzombie.blogspot.com/2012/07/accidentally-amazing-absolutely-awesome.html

Isn’t that awesome?? Just another chapter of my life that I want you to witness! And such a great 21st birthday present from the Nail polish world LOL.

I’m going to be all sappy and stuff later. Like super sappy. Like I’m going to be blowing into a tissue so you better get teary0eyed-too kind of sappy.

Because you’re the person who has been with me through thick and thin and my friendship and love for you will never ever ever waver. EVARRRRRR.


Hugs and besos,



August 2012 Plans

August will be my most exciting month this summer, I think. You know why?




Then there’s an earlier trip that month as well – Friday & Saturday shall be spent in Atlantic City! That’s a trip that my parents are accompanying me on but I might also have other (of-age) friends come with me, namely Rukmani and Christine (Her bday is August 1st so this would be a way to celebrate both of our birthdays)

Isn’t it shaping up to be an exciting two months? I still haven’t input my other travel dates, but I need to add in (somewhere in either July or August) a trip to WASHINGTON DC to visit George Washington University and also Georgetown University.

My gosh I am so excited!


July 2012 Plans

My summer is filling up fast with all this traveling I’m aiming to do! I don’t know if I posted earlier but my plan is that in addition to working 2 days a week and interning 2 days a week, I want to travel and visit some law schools as well!

The first of these trips will most likely take place in July, unless I can squeeze in my trip to Boston earlier, sometime in June. I don’t want to push it and it’s cheaper to plan a little bit earlier; if I made bookings now for traveling in June, I would probably have to pay more.

Check out what July looks like though. Talk about jam-packed!

July 30th is my birthday! I’m so excited 🙂 I can’t believe I’ll be 21 so soon now!!

Time to start hunting for some cheap airline and hotel rates!
