Lifelines: Carly

Hey guys!
Welcome back 💙

I’m starting a new series on my blog. It’s called Lifelines, as you can tell by the title. Each week, for no set period of time, I’m going to write about somebody close to me who has made a big impact on my life in a positive way. Somebody who has been there through thick and thin and still loves me even though I’m crazy.

My first lifeline is none other than my best friend, Carly. We’ve been friends for six years which is my longest friendship with anybody. She is my number one supporter. She knows me better than I know myself and loves me for who I am. Plus, she’s just as crazy as me! We make a great pair.

We also have our Timmy/Jimmy alter egos which makes everything better. Everything is better when you have a twin brother.

Abby & Carly

A lot of the people we hangout with can only hangout with one of us at a time because when we’re together we get too annoying for everybody. I don’t know how that happens, but we don’t have a lot of friends… all we need is each other though! Our parents can’t even handle us if that says anything.

Speaking of people not being able to deal with us, we’ve done some pretty stupid things to make people not want to be around us. Like the time we let a demon loose in my basement… don’t use a Ouija Board kids… just don’t. I still refuse to go into my basement alone haha. Or the time we went to Steak n Shake for milkshakes and she had a mental breakdown.

 

Overal, she’s my best friend and will forever be my best friend. We’ve never gotten into an actual fight (except the time I threw a chair at her). Whenever I get bullied she’s the first one there to kick some ass. Which she’s done before. It was awesome. In the six short years we’ve been friends she’s taught me that it’s alright to be different. Before she was in my life I was a shy, quiet girl who didn’t do anything. Now I never shut up. So everybody who hates that, thank Carly.

Valentine’s Day Alone? Nope.

Hey guys!
Welcome back. 💙

As you can probably tell in my past two blogs, I got dumped about two weeks ago.
Now it’s Valentine’s Day. I thought I would be alone. Oh boy was I wrong…

Valentine's Day Alone

I used to think Valentine’s Day was all about having a boyfriend or girlfriend to spoil the hell out of. I didn’t think it was meant for friends because of the romance factor. But, honestly fuck romance. I just want some friends and food. Preferably chocolate and soda.

This year, I thought I would be spending Valentine’s Day alone. But, then I realized I have  the greatest friends on this planet who are making sure I have a great day. Shoutout to all 7 of you. I love you all to death.

Now, I don’t see Valentine’s Day as a day of romance meant for your significant other. I see it as a day to celebrate my friends and family, and show them how much they mean to me. Love comes in all forms. Friendship love is the best kind of love there is. I know they’re always there for me and I’m always there for them. I don’t think I’ve been closer to all of them than I am right now and I’m so thankful for it.

Thank you to my friends that I talk to everyday, who know everything about me and don’t judge me too bad. Thanks for being crazy with me and being there with Taco Bell when I’ve had a bad day and need a hug.

Thank you to all my blogging friends who have given me endless support since the beginning.

Thank you to my parents for making sure I’m taken care of. For never letting me go a day without making sure I’m loved.

I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day, single or taken. You are always loved.

Recovery

After every heartbreak, every bad ending, when one chapter ends, recovery follows. It’s not always easy, nor is every step a step taken forward. It’s all a process. You don’t know how long it’ll take, or how hard it will be. There will be good days and bad days. In life there are obstacles. I will recover. 

There will be no tears cried over you anymore. I will not lose sleep because of you anymore. I will get back out there and continue to live my life. Your negativity doesn’t affect me anymore. Your presence that once was here will not haunt me again.

I am free. I am alive. I am recovering.

I used to say I couldn’t live without you, I couldn’t breathe without you. Look at me now. I’m breathing just fine on my own. I’ll be okay. I have the best support system ever and I’m beyond grateful and blessed to have them in my life.

I never thought I would be where I am today. I’ve been at my lowest, I’ve been at my highest. I can’t wait to make more memories with my ride or dies.

Never in a Million Years

I never found out what I did wrong, or why this had to happen.
It’s all gods plan.

You said you would never do something like this because you aren’t that type of person.
I believed you.
I thought you were such a great person and I looked up to you, literally. For awhile, I thought you would always be here.

After some time, things changed.
Sadness turned into anger.
Anger turned to yelling.
I couldn’t take the stress… it was unbearable.

My hair started falling out. My appetite completely disappeared for two weeks. My healthy weight was gone. All my motivation left when you did. I couldn’t get out of bed for three damn days.

The love I once had for this world vanished. The grey clouds that overwhelmed me everyday showed no sign of leaving anytime soon.

Seeing you leave for the last time was watching my entire world crash down. I let the tears fall. I let all my emotions out. Then, I realized I wasn’t the only girl in your life. I wasn’t good enough for you, so you needed to go behind my back with somebody new.

It all clicked then. I deserve better. I can do better. I WILL do better. I am free now. Free from your negative energy. Free from the harsh words you called me. Free from it all.

Right now, I’m hurting. I will hurt for awhile. But I’m going to recover. 

I will make it. I will come out stronger.

200 Followers?!

Wowzers. I can’t believe that in 5 short months of blogging I’ve gotten to know so many amazing people and read what they’ve had to say. At the same time I’m amazed that people want to listen to what I have to say. It’s truly amazing.

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who read my blogs and who have gotten to know me on a personal level. It’s a blessing to be able to meet people all over the world who actually enjoy reading about my life since you know… I have no friends haha.

I remember when I started blogging I thought I would completely fail and nobody would care. So to all of you new bloggers, just know that there’s somebody out there who would love to read what you write and would love to meet you. I’ll be one of those people!

I know this post is short, but I just wanted to say thank you to everybody who has followed me in this journey. You’re all super amazing for putting up with my antics.  I hope you all liked reading! 💙

August Flashback

This month completely flew by. It was the last month before school started for most people. The last full month before the leaves start changing colors and falling to the ground. Autumn will be starting soon and as I hate to see summer go, I’m excited for pumpkins, pretty leaves, pumpkin spice lattes and fall clothes. Also, the bugs go back to wherever the hell they came from. Hallelujah!

I’m going to go back and see what I did for the last full month of summer. Let’s get into it!

August 1st: First time going to Elevate, a trampoline park. 

 

 

August 2nd: Spent the day with Samm, John and one of my other friends. Samm and I caused John so much suffering from messing with his stuff he said he did’t want to be around us anymore.

 

August 5th: Brimfield’s Annual Car Show 

There were some pretty cool cars there. The food was the best part though 😂

August 10th: Old Settlers 

 

August 19th: I got my first kitten, Smokey J. 

 

P.S., I made my cat a Snapchat! It’s Smokey_J19 go add him!

August 21st: Eclipse 

 

August 28th: Timmy and Jimmy’s first sleepover! 

 

There you go! That’s a few of the big things I did in the last full month of summer. I had a really fun month filled with being around my friends and family who love and care about me. They all mean the world to me. I hope you all liked reading! 💙

Timmy & Jimmy’s 6 year friend-aversary

Holy snickerdoodle guys! I can’t believe I’ve been friends with this girl for six years! We’ve been through so much together, did so much together, ate so much together… But we’ve been through it all. Breakups, coffee highs, random fits of laughter that get us yelled at by my parents. I don’t know how they dealt with us for 6 years… let alone what friends we have left.

In honor of it being 6 years with her I’m going to tell you about some funny things she’s done.

  1. Once she walked out in front of a semi that was coming down the road at 30 mph. I saved her life that day.
  2. She fell down my step. Not stairs. Just. One. Step. She couldn’t handle it haha.
  3. She named my microwave Eric and now every time she comes over she hugs my microwave.
  4. She put numbing paste in her mouth and proceeded to drool all over my floor.
  5. On multiple occasions she has laughed so hard she peed. It’s okay though so have I.
  6. She was holding a marshmallow out the window and dropped it while I was driving. She made me back up so she could pick it up.

She lightens my day at anytime. She never fails to make me laugh… plus she’s a pretty good body guard. She’s beaten up all my bullies multiple times. That’s probably why people don’t mess with me very much anymore.

Since it’s a very special day, we got each other presents. I’m going to share them with you.

What I got her: 

A bag of Lay’s barbecue flavored chips, two bags of gummy bears, a bacon and cheese pizza, a note, a Mountain Dew and some hair ties.

What Carly got me: 

10 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, 10 3 Musketeers, a can of Campbell’s Spaghetti, and a Pepsi.

We pretty much get each other little things. But food is always the best present haha. How many years have you had your best friend? I hope you all liked reading! 💙
