7 Days of Black & White

Guess who’s back… back again. Abby’s back. Don’t tell anybody because I’m a loser…. Just kidding! Anyways… I’m in a very good mood because I decorated my room for Christmas today (tour coming later). A few days ago a super talented blogger told me to do this black and white challenge. Here’s her blog: Right Here!!! (Go read it! Santa’s watching…)

So without further hesitation, here’s 7 pictures I took in two days because I don’t follow the rules (Just kidding I was just being lazy).

Life Update.

Life.jpg

I haven’t blogged all week and this post is to tell you why. My life is a shit show.

I’ll start with this. I’m sick. I went from having tonsillitis to getting bronchitis. I can’t go more than two minutes without coughing up a lung. It’s gotten to be very annoying and I don’t know how much more of it I can deal with. I keep waking up in the middle of the night coughing and it’s NOT okay.

Next, my anxiety is supper high. I swear I’m going bald. My hair is falling out and it’s a mess. I have acne and I feel like a potato. I’m defiantly living my best life.

This week was also Thanksgiving so I was pretty busy eating and spending time with my family. The day before Thanksgiving was Andrew’s 19th birthday. (He’s old as hell).  

Now that I’ve taken a week to gather myself and gain 30 pounds of pure turkey and stuffing, I’m feeling much better. So now I’m back and better than ever… somewhat. But I’m managing.

There’s a little life update. I’ll be back on Monday 💙

Fighting at an Arcade/Bowling Failure

My Saturday night… Normally I have pretty normal Saturday nights. Last night we hectic though. I’m still worn out haha.

Normally, a regular Saturday starts off with me waking up at the same time I do everyday. 9am. Then I spend 15 minutes deciding which kind of coffee I want to make with my Keurig (I’m obsessed and I have a problem). After I drink my coffee and tell my mom all about my Friday night I take a shower, get ready for my day and make Andrew lunch. At night we go bowling with our friend Nick. We’re getting pretty good guys. I can get over 100 points now.

Well, last Saturday night was a little different. A new arcade/pool/bowling place opened up at a mall close to us, so we decided to go check it out because apparently it’s the best arcade in central Illinois. I have no opinion on that. I don’t go to arcades, nor am I a gaming nerd.

Andrew, Nick, Sam and I were playing air hockey (cause we’re cool kids) and these two guys must have started fighting about something. Next thing I know there’s a hundred people running past me, joining the fight, and knocking people out. The cops came, everybody chilled out and everything returned back to normal like nothing ever happened. Damn kids.

We went back to what we were doing. I was destroying everybody at air hockey when all of our friends and family members were texting and calling us saying there was a shooting where we were. I didn’t hear a gun shot. If I heard a gun I would’ve been long gone. They were asking us where we were, if we were safe, the usual things people ask when things like this happens. We were all fine. Nothing extremely bad happened and thank the Lord for that. It really made me wonder “What would happen if there happened to be a shooting then. What would I do?” That thought was short lived because we left and went to a bowling alley miles away from that place.

It’s a tradition to play pool when we get to the bowling alley. For some odd reason we always end up getting there too early, I guess we get a little too excited. So we pass the time by playing pool. I’m not good at pool. I suck. Really bad. But I still beat Andrew once and Nick. (Nick hit the 8 ball in on accident so I won without really doing anything). 

When it comes to bowling, I’m decent. I’m definitely a bowler in training haha. I can’t lift anything above the 6 pound ball and I break a nail every time. Last night I wasn’t too bad though. I scored over 100 on 4 out of 5 games. I only fell down once.. maybe twice. We all had little slips though. Except Nick. He totally ate it and I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard in my life.  (The first game was a practice round).

So that pretty much sums up my very crazy Saturday night. I really don’t get out much. I slept in until 10 today and went to Taco Bell for lunch. I’m really living the life.

The Kid Who Brought Me Coffee

The kid who brought me coffee, I’ve known you for years even though I don’t remember how we met. You kinda just showed up and nobody knows where you came from. You tried to explain it to me but I got distracted and quit listening.

Are we friends? Sometimes, when you aren’t being annoying. Up until yesterday you didn’t know how old I was… and honestly I don’t know how old you are. It happens. But it’s pretty fun raising hell all over town with you.

Do I hate you? 75% of the time. Especially when I have to get up and take you to school even though I graduated almost two years ago, and in return you only give me one donut. I expect more donuts next time dude. Not cool.

The reason I’m writing this is because I asked you to walk to the gas station to get me coffee because I’m lazy. You told me I had to write about you and how you’re my number one fan. (I don’t even think he reads half my blogs). I ended up getting my coffee and now you have this being written for you at 4:32 in the morning.

So here you go. I guess when it all comes down to it, you’re pretty cool to be around. Sometimes. Let’s face it, you can be annoying. Other times you can act like an actual human being. You’re the little brother I despise quite often but we do some pretty stupid things together. Like playing hide and seek and watching you hide in a dumpster. Clever.

What I Do When I Have Anxiety

Most of us have been at the point where we’re anxious about something. When I was a freshman my teacher told me that some anxiety is good for you. But this is ridiculous. I’ve had really bad anxiety ever since I was little. I never understood it until I was in high school though. I was always scared to talk to people… and when I say scared I mean terrified. That’s why I wouldn’t make any friends. My parents thought I was just shy and I’d grow out of it. That never happened.

I get anxiety over EVERYTHING. Storms, too many people, scheduling, waking up and sleeping, eating right, adulting, blogging, being judged, going out in public, talking to strangers, ordering food, doing something wrong, the list goes on and on. A lot of the time I have bad anxiety to where I can’t sleep at night. (This is one of those nights… it’s almost 2 in the morning). I’ve tried a lot of different things to try to get rid of my anxiety, or at least make it better. I think I made a post similar to this a long time ago, but this is an updated version I guess.

1. Turn off the damn phone. Especially if it’s a person I’m talking to that’s stressing me out. Sometimes I like to turn off my phone, go off the grid for awhile and spend some time alone to clear my head.

2. Listen to music. This is one of the biggest ways I calm myself down. I love to turn on Spotify, put some earbuds in, lay in bed and get lost in the bass line of a good song. I could do that for hours on end.

3. Adult coloring books. These work wonders. It makes me focus on something else other than all my problems. It might be a little childish but I don’t care. I do whatever makes me feel better.

4. Walking. Distracting yourself by exercising is a great way to get all that anxiety away from you. We want anxiety as far away from us as possible. So I walk away from all the problems and the anxiety it causes. Listen to music while walking makes it a lot better too. The more distractions, the easier life is.

5. Petting My Cat. At the end of a long day, I love climbing into bed with my little baby and snuggling until I fall asleep.

Those are the 5 main things I do whenever I’m having a day filled with anxiety.

Asking Friends to Describe Our Friendship

Where do I even start?

We’ve been friends for 6 years now. That’s 6 years we’ve managed not to kill each other. But that doesn’t mean we’ve had some near death experiences. There’s been a lot of those. Like the one time Carly was looking at her phone and was crossing the highway at the same time. She didn’t see a semi coming. At the last second I pulled her out of the road and saved her life. I’m awesome.

There’s been times she’s saved my life too. Like when I about backflipped off my trampoline and broke my neck. She grabbed me at the last second before I fell to my death. There’s also times we put both of our lives in danger. We’ve gotten pretty good at staying safe though.

Some people say we have a pretty weird friendship. I’m going to ask some of our friends to describe our friendship in three words and see what they say. There goes what little self esteem I have left.

Andrew: Microwave, named, Eric. 

My mom: Caring, sharing, secrets. 

My dad: Not, too, bad. 

Carly’s boyfriend: Really, freakin, hilarious.

Sam: Timmy f*cking Jimmy. 

My brother: Let’s get spooky. 

Joey: I don’t know. 

Austen: Dumb and Dumber. 

John: Bat Sh*t Crazy. 

Samm: Crazy, fruity, coffee. 

Jordan: Caring, ridiculous, comical.

Friend: Crazy, wild, outgoing.

Alex: Really, f*cking, weird. 

Well, there you have it from our friends. They hate us sometimes. But they love us and they know it. 💙
