Weird Abby Confronts The Blue Target

Recently, I went to Walmart. Now I understand that this is probably not a great opening statement, but trust me, ladies and gentlemen, it gets better. Better sentence: this is a big deal because up until that moment, I was afraid of Walmart. Crazy, right? I was afraid of Walmart because I was getting scared and/or trampled. I had only been to Walmart a handful of times and usually, I got lost, but not trampled. The trampling fear comes from those scary stories that come about after or during Black Friday about people who die because they fall and are trampled, when all they came for was the Malibu Snowshoe Princess Dream Castle Barbie and Ken set. THAT MAKES ME SCARED TO THE POINT WHERE I FEEL THE NEED TO WRITE IN ALL CAPS. Anyway, this Walmart trip, I got neither lost or trampled and also found a plethora of different junk foods.

Even though it still gives me a little bit of anxiety, I am no longer completely frightened, and may even go back in the near future. As I explained to a friend of mine the other day, "I may actually like Walmart because it is like a blue Target with bad smelling candles and great candy".

Now, I know this is a weird fear. Don't we all have weird fears, though? We all have weird things about us, and it bothers me that we can't talk about it as people. Especially since I'm in high school, it bothers me that we can't talk about our "weird" in public. Normal is not natural, just like perfection isn't. I'm weird, to the point that I am (I have to get used to saying used to be) afraid of Walmart, I'm obsessed with little someones like Marina and the Diamonds and Leonardo DiCaprio, I like alphabetizing, and I frequently write blog posts that I think are funny and discuss how I know everything so that all of the fake people and nice relatives (Hi, Mom) who read it can pat me on the back and say "Awwww". I like being weird. I also like the faces people make when I talk about my "weird". They're fun. Now please don't going around screaming about your family secrets or whatever, but be weird. As an example, WWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Also, I thought I'd embed my favorite song right now. Brilliant video, too. "Midnight City" by M83

On School

School started a week and a half ago. This year, I'm faced with the typical new things, like classes, work load, schedule, and teachers, but I have also (re)joined the choir and the speech team, and we have a new volleyball coach. While I am excited about all of this new stuff, I can't help feeling like a scared little freshman, not knowing what to do at all and diving into whatever I can while screaming bloody murder. The start of school makes everyone feel really scared, agitated, depressed, or all of the above, I think, and I am most certainly no exception. I have been very mopey and angry and screamy and cry-y lately, and I have definitely been taking refuge in God, music, coffee, and exercise now more than anything. While I sit here, once again stressed and not helping myself by procrastinating and writing a blog post, I just wonder if I'm the only one who feels this way about a little thing like school. I'm sure I'm not, because there are billions of people ou

What am I doing here?

So, I'm now on the Internet, creating a brand for myself. Here's the deal: I'm a writer, dreamer, observer, filmmaker, Clare Maguire super fan, student, music lover, TV fanatic, a not-so movie buff and ultimately, a wannabe. At the moment, I'm not particularly anything, but I can be. By reading this blog, you have discovered me, and I just want to say thanks. I don't aim to be a genius, but I do aim to make at least one person smile. Please keep reading, because I certainly need an audience. After all, I am an attention seeker! Now here's some more about me... I'm inspired by these people (not necessarily in this order): John Hughes George Lucas Fannie Flagg Diablo Cody Ellen Page Tina Fey Amy Poehler Kristin Wiig Clare Maguire Kate Nash Lily Allen Adele I watch these TV shows: Gilmore Girls I Love Lucy Degrassi: The Next Generation The Golden Girls Gigantic Law and Order: Los Angeles Harry's Law Glee Law and Order: Special Victi

Book Covers and Feminis...um???

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I recently joined the speech team at my school. Now, I know what you're thinking, non-existent readers, She's a choir nerd, an academic geek, an AV nerd, and now a speech geek, too???  Yes, yes I am. On a similar note, I think I'm switching back to glasses. Anyway, I competed for the first time this past weekend and learned a lot. Whoopee. I just thought I'd share some of my knowledge with you: 1. Don't judge the kid who wears a backpack, a bow tie, and square glasses. He's REALLY GOOD. He will make semifinals. He will beat you and then tell you how awesome you are. And then you will feel awesome and cheer him on when he beats you. Weird, huh? 2. Just like the weird kid who doesn't talk may be really nice, the kid who is nice in the beginning may be really competitive. He will stare at you and try to throw you off!! And it might work!!! Then he'll beat you...badly...and you will be angry. 3. Karma may or may not b
