Yass!! I’ve finally completed a month of blogging today !! (20th September)
I remember finding this app, figuring out how it worked and posting my first and second blog on the same day.
The main reason I started writing a blog was because everyone had a new hobby in quarantine and I didn’t. So I started writing on Google documents 😛. I wrote almost 3 blogs and I felt that they were pretty decent so I wanted to post them somewhere so that I could know how others felt about it too.
A big thank you to my followers who found out about my blog out of nowhere
And also could you tell me a few suggestions for my next post, you know whatever you like. 😃
I have an elder brother who is 12 years older than me, my mom and him spent a lot of time together. She thought that he was going to be an only child and so, taught him the importance of sharing. And then I was born so she knew that my brother was definitely gonna share his stuff with me, and he did. But I didn’t.
I just don’t like people touching my belongings, that’s it. And especially without my permission.
Whenever something new and interesting is brought home ( mostly food ) I will always finish it leaving nothing for others. The thing is, if you want something for yourself you can keep it inside the fridge as long as three to six days and do whatever you want to do with it. But if it stays inside longer than that I am going to eat it.
Those are the rules. Well no one agreed upon it, but those are the rules!
Some of my sharing experiences (also the reason I hesitate to share)
I was on a trip, we stopped for some ice cream because we were bored and hungry. Everyone was going to get ice cream except my friend ( let’s call her N ) I asked whether she was sure about not getting ice cream, and she said yes because apparently she had a sore throat.
So I got 2 scoops of chocolate chip ice cream. N was sitting besides me, so I offered her 1 spoon because she had a sore throat and I didn’t want to worsen that. She took 3 spoons of it instead. I kept telling myself ‘ Okay so she’ll stop now, or now, or now !’ But she didn’t. She kept on going. She definitely ate more of it than I did.
There were only 4 spoons left. Me being desperate to save that for myself moved to another table on the other end of the cafe. N was surprised and asked me to give her some more. I offered to get her another bowl, just for her but she said that she had a “ sore throat” so she couldn’t. What’s worse is that she has this irritating habit of swirling the ice-cream until it melts and then drinking it. And I prefer eating frozen ice-cream instead of that mess. I didn’t even notice she did that. You might be thinking, maybe it just melted? No! All of this happened in only 4 minutes.
Everytime I share something there’s not much left for me…
I’m going to share some stories from my life which got really awkward and humiliating.
No. 1 My strict principal
When I was in fourth grade I had put up a sketch of mother Teresa on the notice board, because everyone was supposed to bring something to decorate the class with. I told everyone that I drew it even though my dad did. So our principal/headmistress/nun/person who never has a smile on her face walks in our class and notices my drawing. She said that she liked it but by her face I thought that someone just threw poop at the board. So she continues to praise the sketch in a very serious face and like everyone else I say ‘thank you’. But she didn’t hear that and goes back with a very annoyed face . To this day I still feel like she hates me.
No. 2 The wrong time to pee.
I was attending a party for something, and the drive there was for 2 hours. I could control going to the washroom for that long and I knew that there was going to be a loo over there.
The party began as soon as we reached, and the things going on were too fun to miss. So I stayed put for another 2 hours. After that I couldn’t control myself and I thought what could I miss now ?
I did my business and came back to realise everyone staring at me. I began to think ‘ Am I leaking? Is my zipper undone ? Is something on my face ? Is there a zombie behind me ? What !!?’
My mom tells me that they were playing a game in which they would mention random things and whoever has that would win. And if two people had that the person with the bigger one wins. Then I asked her why was everyone staring at me? She said “ Oh because they mentioned a rose and the girl over there has one on her dress, but you have a much bigger one on your hair, if you would’ve come earlier you could have won that.”
And there I was dressed head to toe in red wearing a rose hair clip.
I still don’t know what the prize was , but I still want it.
I have a very short attention span, people think I’m not attentive because I don’t like listening to them, which is not true, I do listen to them I just don’t look at them. Believe me staying in school and looking at your classmates for more than six hours a day is more than enough.
During online classes, the class goes on for 1and a half hour, 2 hours and there will definitely be a moment when you will get distracted, because you’re bored. Unlike the teacher’s pet who bores everyone else.
Some teachers aren’t so comfortable with technology, and while taking online classes they struggle. I don’t blame them, they are above 35 .
One of our teachers shows his ceiling instead of his face, although he is able to position his camera towards his face he chooses to show his ceiling. We get it sir you’re proud of your ceiling.
If you’re able to keep me attentive for more than an hour, then you might be doing a great job
Whenever my teachers cal out my name I don’t even realise that and then after a few seconds I’m like huh? Abigail? Who me? When?
If they catch me looking out if the window, they ask me to repeat whatever they said before, and I do, perfectly. They’re surprised because when kids usually don’t pay attention they have no idea what the teacher is talking about. But this doesn’t happen to me everytime. I often mix up words in my head and then don’t remember what was said originally.
I have no problem with these people, but they tend to send you a picture or a gif or a voice message or a text wishing you Good morning, Good afternoon, Good night, Happy New month, Happy New week, and what not. And if you don’t reply they send 13 questions marks.
No 5- The forward or get bad luck freak
You know what I’m just going to paste the message here because it was just too long to screenshot.

I don’t know what problem these kind of people have but they do read your text, but they don’t reply ever. Even if it is something really important they don’t reply. But sometimes they do, but only after a day or two.
No 7- Immediate responder
I come under this, I don’t know why but I have the urge to text back immediately after someone’s texts me. But if I don’t text back soon or if I read your message and still didn’t that means I’m not interested in talking to you.
Note – I am not saying I’m not stupid all I’m saying is that they beat me in the ‘ Who’s stupider ‘ contest.
Ever felt like someone is just too stupid for you and you can’t tolerate them any longer, well I’ve had experience in that area.
A mathematical genius
My ex classmate used to drive not only me but the whole class nuts. One day after maths class she whispers with her sweaty lips, into my ears and says, also I quote ‘ If 1+1 is 2 then 2+2 is 3 ! I am a genius with this I can cure cancer ( followed by an evil laugh ) ‘ I have absolutely no idea how she managed to pass 7th grade.
The future astrophysicist.
The same classmate once announced to the class that she found 12 people living on the sun that look just like her and are wanting to take her to the sun, so she is going there for a research that NASA recruited her for and to meet her doppelgangers. Sometimes I think she’s high or something…
I’m right you’re wrong.
Some people are really adamant that whatever they say is correct and everyone else is wrong. So I met this 12 year old girl who says that Barack Obama is actually indian , that Taj Mahal was built by the Britishers, that India’s population is 3 billion,that U.K and U.S.A are in the same continent and much more.
How often do you text someone? I think almost everyone has encountered a situation in which you are just annoyed over someone’s texting skills.
Problems in texting
No 1- The Acronym Maker
Ok so these people don’t use the acronyms that already exist but instead come up with new ones in their native language. For example my friend texted me this once – ‘ dykwadt’ . Now I didn’t really get so I asked her what it meant, and she said ‘ Do you know what Andrea did today ?’ How on earth was I supposed to know that !?! She continued doing this until one day I asked her “why do you make up your own acronyms if no one is going to understand them? “ She said this ” It’s because it is very easy to understand and it makes my life easier.” I dunno what to say anymore 😐
No 2- The Snail
Snails are slow and so are they. These people take sooooooo long to just type one sentence, one sentence! For example – Another friend and I were having a conversation once and she took so long to type and I begun to wonder ‘ What on earth is she typing?!? ‘
And you what did she respond with ? “Ok” No that’s it thats all she said . She took three minutes to type that. I got so anxious because of that.
No 3- SomeoneSlow them down!
These people love to type fast and that’s great compared to the snails, but they misspell half of the words in order to type fast. Example – ‘ Anigaol’ What was that supposed to mean ? ‘Abigail’

And this happens everytime.
I actually never expected to even get 4 followers .
But this is awesome . Thank you for all the love and support everyone !❤️
So let me tell how I started my blog. I joined the WordPress site on August 20th 2020. Before that I only wrote a few private blogs on Google documents. I felt that my blogs were pretty decent, so I showed it to my mom who liked it too, but I wanted to know what other people felt about it too, so I looked up the best apps for blogging and I found this.
Reading other people’s blogs made me feel that blogging is actually pretty awesome.
Do you know someone who gets hurt all the time ? Or someone who is really clumsy ?
And why do all of my blogs begin with a question ? Hmmmm
Anyways, I am accident prone. That doesn’t mean that I get into accidents everytime , I just get hurt every now and then.
Well, most of the time I’m not even doing anything to get hurt, like now I was just walking and then I banged my knee on the bed post . I thought that the worst that could happen would be, that it would get a bit purple, but no! My knee loves to bleed .
One of the worst injuries that I’ve ever gotten were not entirely my fault. And all of them have left scars.
Glass in my toe –
So this one is pretty interesting. I was at a birthday party which I did not want to go to but I still did. So these kids were pushing each other around near glasses filled with water and then suddenly one kid falls on to the glasses and then those glasses shatter all around. And one piece of glass goes inside my toe. I didn’t realise at all. Then summer notices that there is a trail of blood on the floor. And then I realise start the blood is dripping from my foot. It wasn’t even paining a bit. After a while I go home and all of a sudden mojito starts paining. Weird right.
The push and fall.
I I was in 3rd grade and we were running around in a circle. And the girl running in front of me suddenly stops so do I, but the girl behind me doesn’t and she ends up pushing me over. I fall down on the ground and my knee gets scratched, at least that’s what I thought. After about 20 seconds I realise that my knee is deeply wounded. It was bleeding like anything. My teacher then ask me to go and wash it up in the washroom and I did. Then when I come back I see my teacher taking stretching exercises. And she asked me to participate with the others like my knee hasn’t gone through enough. So I did do the exercises and my teacher thought I was pretty good so she asked me to come up in the front and teach others. My knee then took an extra week to heal.
Well this happened when I was one so I don’t remember much of it or any of it but I’ll tell you what my mom and dad told me. So we were in a jewelry store that had glass doors, so when a customer opened the door I put my tiny fingers inside it and it got cut . I think you can imagine what happened after that.
When lockdown in Goa was first announced I was halfway through my school’s final exams for the year.
It was a Sunday, I came back from church to go study for my next exam, science. Which I wasn’t so confident about .
And then the lockdown was announced! I was happy that I didn’t have to go to school, but what about next year? Was I going to school then ?
And then I didn’t leave the house for 67 days straight. On the 68 day I got fed up and stepped out of my door and came back inside. Honestly, I didn’t mind staying inside.
But first lemme tell you , online classes aren’t the worst . Think on the bright side.
You don’t have to wake up early In the morning, half asleep, eat breakfast in a hurry and then run after the bus because your late. Now all you have to do is wake up , wash your face, put on a neat shirt and then just sit.
Although you do sometimes miss human companionship. 😕
So I went for walks a few times. And I removed my mask for a second because I was sweating inside and wanted some fresh air, and this guy next to me farts, 😐 and since then I haven’t removed my mask in public once .
Have you ever come across someone who is unnecessarily rude to you ? I did . ☹️
So my mom had to go get an eye check up, she didn’t go to her regular Optometrist but to a new one . He asked her to come again the next day . And bring someone to accompany her, as her vision might get a bit blurry. So I went with her .
The doctor was 40 minutes late , and there was another patient before us . So we were in the lobby for almost an hour . I know it’s not that long, but I really got bored .
Finally when we went inside , he didn’t have eye contact with us and neither did he greet or say atleast ‘ HELLO’ to us . Which I found strange. My mom told me that yesterday she found him really rude.
He started doing check-ups on my mom, he didn’t really bother I was there , so I started looking around his office . I looked at few of his certificates, walls , machines which he used and I got bored again.
So like any other teen would , I took out my mom’s phone to watch a 3 minute video. I also wore earphones as to not disturb them .
2 minutes into the video , he starts yelling at me !! And since I couldn’t hear him , my mom tapped my shoulder and I turned around.
He starts yelling at me again ! And says that I have no etiquette and that if I want to get lost in my phone I should get out .
I started to process everything, because not once in my life has some stranger yelled at me !!
He was talking about ETIQUETTE which he did not show, and the only reason I took out the phone was because he didn’t even bother that I was there!
I Wasn’t his patient, why would me being on the phone annoy him !!
Ok maybe , he might be having a bad day. But that doesn’t mean you take out your frustrations on a little girl !! You’ve even NEVER talked to .
He continued yelling at me for five minutes straight. So I kept the phone down . It was the most awkward moment of my life.
The worst thing is that I couldn’t remember his clinic’s name , otherwise I would’ve rated him one star .
Have you had such an experience before ? And who do you think was wrong ?
This actually contains pictures and their information.
P.C – walkthroughindia.com
Go follow them!
No. 1 Meghalaya
This is my personal favourite. Since I’ve actually walked in this bridge I can tell what it’s about. This bridge is made out of the living roots of many trees combined. Yes you heard it right it is made out of roots . The bridge is layered with bricks which makes it easier to walk through it . And below is a beautiful stream with crystal clear water ! And no, this is not photoshopped.
No. 2 Sikkim
Nathu la pass is the border between India and China.
No. 3. Mizoram
I wasn’t able to obtain a lot of pictures of Mizoram.
No .4 Arunachal Pradesh
This state has the first sunrise point in all of India !!
No. 5 Tripura & Darjeeling ( West Bengal)
No. 6 Assam
Now Assam is famous for its tea and its plains . Also there aren’t a lot of hills in Assam.
These people know that they don’t speak like this , and yet they do.
Which is sometimes so annoying!
They think by doing this they come off as smart or respectable. But in reality they don’t.
No. 2 The Yeller
Now the reason I wrote that in caps is because writing in caps indicates yelling ,so. These people speak at a loud voice and don’t realise that they’re yelling. I don’t blame them, maybe they aren’t able to hear themselves and that is why they yell ? Or they are just really stressed.
No. 3 The Usain Bolts
How does Usain Bolt have anything to do with this ?
He doesn’t. What I mean is that these people talk super fast and sometimes stutter . Other people fail to understand what they’re saying . It could be because they’re excited about something and yet speak fast . Maybe . 🤷 I fall under this category. Believe me I do try to talk slow but I just can’t .
No. 4 The whisperer
No, not the animal whisperer,
the literal whisperer .
They speak so softly that even a bat can’t hear them . These people can be shy too . Well maybe they’re saving their voice for something ?
What do you think ? Tell me in the comments below !!
What to do if you’re bored This picture represents everyone when they’re bored in quarantine. Longing to be in the outside world instead of being trapped in your home. But not me , cause I love being inside . Tips on how not to be bored at home
1.Make use of technology Watch YouTube videos, get an ott platform’s subscription, watch movies on that . Learn how to use a computer, make presentations. And if not learn your most desired hobby. Bake, dance, sing, relax, and do stuff . Or just don’t do anything, like me. Being sane Now, now I know that y’all are going through a hard time being in quarantine and all. But I’m very happy. This is what I’ve wanted since I was 4 no going to school, learning from home and no unnecessary touching . Well I don’t know much about this topic since I am 13 . Then why the hell am I writing this blog? I don’t know you tell me. Well you’ve reached the end of this stupid blog so you clearly have nothing else to do. To give you a sense of achievement here’s this – CLAP CLAP – Abigail 💙💜
