A semester in review.

Well this was one ‘hell’ *pun intended* of a semester wasn’t it? 

With the number of students being higher than EVER, the TISF being more active than we’ve seen in the past, the societies making an effort to come back to life and people actually representing tip and winning things, this semester was ALOT more ‘happening’ than the previous ones to say the least.

First and foremost, the night stay ban is still there after a whole semester and no one is really happy about that. Why? Refer to the previous article for that.

The intriguing part was seeing whether TISF performs or not and it would be safe to say that they did not disappoint.

Starting with sports, ALOT of teams went to NUST Olympiad representing TIP, Although they couldn’t win, ATLEAST we had some kind of representation so that’s a good thing. The overall sports section of TIP seems to be getting better with the new table tennis tables and sports equipment, we can see random people playing cricket at random times or girls playing throwball which is comforting,  considering that for the past two years the only sports people were ever seen playing wns… cards. sometimes table tennis and badminton. so we’re doing pretty good here.

Some more representation came when for the first time in recent memory TIP was officially represented by a delegation in a (kind of an) MUN, and after that TIPs team won the second prize in an inter-University ‘presentation’ competition (MEGA 8) held and hosted by Bahria University so kudos to that too.

Overall we had 6 ‘events’ which included:

  1. Freshies and sports night at the same time.
  2. The Halloween night: Had great reviews overall and the arrangements were above average.
  3. A musical evening where Shehryar Shareef (4th year) performed.
  4. The bake sale which was organized independently by a group of students, which ended up being ALOT more fun than anyone expected and ultimately was successful.
  5. and funky Friday by paintoos.

Speaking of Paintoos, they tried to come back to life and did so with TIPs very own mannequin challenge that got around 15k views on Facebook. That was pretty amazing.

And last but definitely not the least was the beach party. after the rumors kept going for almost a month we were finally given an event in the form of beach party AFTER our papers.

Sure there were some issues with the transport which stopped it from being perfect. It was the kind of event where you’d feel sorry for the ones who missed it and it truly ended the semester with a bang.

If there was anything wrong with it, it was the fact that it ended 15 minutes before the clock even struck 10, the ones who arrived late due to transport issues would have certainly appreciated a little bit more time to completely enjoy the atmosphere.

Coming soon: The games.

The games are about to begin.  *suspenseful music in the background*

 

You have probably been noticing some weird things lately in TIP and we all know what it is.

No, I’m absolutely not talking about the OH-SO-AMAZING batch of juniors we’ve had this time, frankly I think it’s VERY rude that you actually thought I was talking about them, I’m not talking about the infamous hostel ghost stories,  neither am I talking about some of the ‘GROWN UPS’ we have at our Institute who are getting weirder looking by day, anyways back to the point, yes! The weird thing.

I’m talking about the fact that everyone is being so nice to each other these days, people who don’t normally talk to each other will be found sitting together, and doing..  things together. people who might have even been rude to you at some point are now probably not being so rude. So what is it, you must have have wondered and most probably already know the answer, but just for the sake of drama let’s do it MY way. 

 

So what is up with everyone?  Has humanity finally decided to have some humanity?  Has the government made new laws against being rude?  Is everyone smoking some really good stuff and getting high alot these days, thus the niceness? Or Is it a world created by your imagination and nothing is real?

 

The answer is, NONE OF THE ABOVE, its just that the TISF ELECTIONS 2K16, the Game of thrones, the TIPs version of demolition derby, where many go in, but only the strongest come out alive, is about to start.

 

The most exciting time of the year when everyone gets to feel important, is here and Boy oh boy is it going to be sweet. Fresh Rumours are coming in every day and these elections might just shaping up to be one of the best, most competitive ones we’ve had in recent memory, panels are going to be complicated this time, on one hand there is a strong chance that we might get to see more than two candidates for certain posts and some may even be thinking about rolling the dice once AGAIN, and on the other there are some dark horses in the race, some candidates that upon hearing your immediate response will be “that guy?  Seriously who is gonna vote for him??” , and some horses who are telling everyone they’re not interested in the race but anyone with a functioning brain can see, they WILL be a part of it.

 

This will be all for now, but this is just one of the many posts to come regarding the elections , so yeah buckle up! because this is going to be a VERY fun ride.

SpringFest16

A look at the most recent,and the first day time event by TISF.

Have you ever been to that one movie, with all your friends after a very long time and you know that the movie isn’t anything special but you’re still really excited about it because at least you get to have fun?  That’s basically what the case was with the most recent event by TISF that we got in the form of “SpringFest16″.

After a series of semi successful to successful night events such as BBQ ,Halloween and sports nights ,this event was the first day time event and12891159_1294897107193479_8077334210674785750_o

for that reason everyone was expecting a lot from it, perhaps a bit too much considering the limited budget *as we are told* our organizers get to work with. The guys and girls were all putting in an extra effort in getting ready because of ‘the event’ which was gonna end with ‘rang’ anyway so if you ask me, that wasn’t such a great idea because when those layers of ‘good looks’ get removed by the rang water, an epic display of weird looking colored scary monsters is what we get to witness and that is exactly what happened and IT.WAS. SWEET. Kind of tragic in a way, maybe a tad bit wrong morality wise..But yeah sweet.

Now coming back to the event itself, there were a lot of things to do there, The jumping castle (was fun), the other jumping castle kind of thing (no idea what it’s supposed to be), the huge ball thingy (my personal favorite) *I don’t know what it’s called so ill just call it the huge ball thingy* and sumo wrestling too.

The jumping castle, as it is generally called but if you ask me, the word castle would be a little bit exaggerating? I guess. But eh, it was fun .. Think about any famous wrestling move you might be familiar with from watching WWE, whether it’s the Spear, the Rock bottom, the Powerbomb or an F5, all of them were used by guys on each other and it was crazy fun. Then there was the huge ball thingy, sure you had to wait a little for your turn but once inside it turned the world upside down ..quite literally.

The general feedback to it was mixed. Some thought it wasn’t worth the hype ,Most were just disappointed ,Some decided not to be a part of it and sat in the café saying ‘Garmi hy’ *the worst kind of people*, while some actually enjoyed the hell out of it.

A lot of people complained about the lack of stalls but you can’t put all the blame on TISF, the lack of stalls was the fault of students, they’re the ones responsible for them it just goes to show that we HAVE gotten lazy and all most of us do is complain. Then there were the problems with the way it was all organized , the event started a bit late than it was promised ,there weren’t enough rides and also the tents/shamianas/tamboos *call them what you want* were not properly installed, some of them fell down and the others were quite LITERALLY dancing to the beats of music , it looked like all of them might fall on our heads any second and admit it or not, a lot of you wished that it DOES fall I mean, just imagine the chaos. It would’ve been the best thing to come out of the night.

Anyways that’s basically all there was to it, all the jokes and sarcasm aside, the best thing about it was the fact that there was something HAPPENING and we got to see that excitement on the faces of everyone that is so rare here at TIP, things have become so stale here that it is frustrating, we rarely ever have something to look forward to so here it is to hoping, that we get better days like this one more often.12916807_1294883050528218_1902896509097662132_o 12885821_1294885343861322_3084911144024888881_o

The Power Games #TISF #elections2015

TISF has never been so hot and elections have never been so dirty. The games, accusations, politics and complains heard this year cannot ever be complied in this article.

However, what I will post about is the panels. The AHs’, the ASLs’ and the A. T say this year’s elections have brought forth the baddest, dirtiest politician from each TIPian is a major understatement.

The vote count has never been so unpredictable. Since last week the voters are changing sides and I know that the votes are never truly revealed but even the truest voters or as they say Pakke votes are not so pakke anymore. Why is this you ask! This is because each day this week has been a revolution. Each day has played havoc with the brains of the panel members.

LETS GO TO THE BEACH !!!

This year’s beach bash was… everyone had a different view of it. Some, after comparing it with Saboor’s beach bash said it wasn’t worth their Sunday; others said that it was better when Rs.400 were taken but in my case: it wasn’t that bad.
