JOKES ON YOU MY FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS.
According to my computer clock, it is Mon 10:19 PM, aka the day after my last post, aka I am STILL on track with my goal. Ohs..to the yeahs.
My friend couldn't have said it better when she said, "Everyone thinks I live this bliss life but...I don't."
Take that that statement, multiply it by 10, divide it by dispair and then grind it up into little pieces with your shoe. Previous statement = my day.
ROUGH. ("And yet, here Abby is, faithfully blogging despite the difficult day she has battled through - just so that I may dream sweet dreams and make little children laugh. Bless her", should be going through your mind right now.)
Alright, alright. I'm being a little dramatic. But still. It was one of THOSE days:
Lil Blue (my faithful 1996 mazda protegue) won't talk to me because I didn't take him to school today.
Late to 1st.
Was told I looked like an Asian fisherman (QUE???)
Didn't eat lunch.
Got my *#%@^)@&*#%&*^&*% braces tightened. ("Yeaah...we skipped a wire size just because we like seeing the innocent suffer")
Went PROM DRESS shopping.
Failed miserably at PROM DRESS shopping.
Couldn't chew my delicious easter goodies. (Because of my *#%@^)@&*#%&*^&*% braces)
Forced to clean my man cave.
Can't have lil blue ALL WEEK. He's one to hold a grudge...
STRESSED about the last month of school.
So there I was. Stewing over the fact that my day was crapola and blasting "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter (shout out to 8th grade, baby!) in my room. I was to the point of boiling over when I remembered a compliment someone gave me. And the more I thought about that compliment, the more I realized how many (if you will) "bright spots" had dotted my day. Sorry to go all Sister Christensen on ya, but that little moment was straight out of the Young Women's manual. Shall I share my "bright spots" with the class? Ohs...to the yeahs:
That really nice compliment during class.
20/20 on my vocab test. WHADDUP??
A chocolate bunny brought to me from a far-away land (bryn's house)
A nice long chat with a bestie during 5th.
Didn't have to go to 7th.
Some Lays chips magically appeared on the voting table. My stomach's still thanking me.
Driveway chatola with an old friend.
Found DOS back-up dresses.
The Soph-dawg making me laugh.
Slurped some clams chowds (my absoulute favorite soup) for din din.
Found my SOUL MATE via internet. We're getting married on October 29th. (National Cat Day, sillies!)
That sweater came from that cat. And that mullet is ALL man.
And so all this junk -
And so, my little compadres, learn from me. FIND THOSE BRIGHT SPOTS, DANG IT. And may your day be better for it.
TWO OF SEVEN.
And to all of those who said, "Your posts can't be deep AND funny"....JOKES ON YOU.
