Late Night Thoughts/ RPOTW

I wrote this on the day before Halloween, if you get confused with names I use look at the bottom of the post

It’s that time of the week again, but this time I’m doing LNT’s with RPOTW. You know I’m shortening them because it’s a pain to write it all out. It’s funny how I say random Post of the week but I probably only write one every couple of weeks or even months, but the name stuck. Anyways grab some food and your furry friend because this ones going to be a long one!

First Topic: Health

I do talk about health a lot so if you don’t want to read all of it just skip to the next topic.

About a month or so ago I got another lung infection. Same symptoms and everything. I had had a sinus infection and was on an antibiotic to treat it but it also happens to treat lung infections. During my sinus infection I developed a lung infection. I was on that for 3 weeks.

Next I went to my 3 month monthly clinic. My pfts were worse and the antibiotic didn’t help my symptoms. My doctor, who I’m just going to call L for the sake of writing, put me on a steroid for 5 days. It’s meant to help inflammation and trapped air which calculated by another pft calculated 33%. In my bronch I did 3 months ago there was inflammation too. It didn’t help. Honestly I wasn’t that surprised because steroids never help me. Anyways, my mom called my hospital to let L know about what’s going on. I was put on an antibiotic that I’ve never been on before and can be used as a prevention med. I took that for five days and now I take it 3 times a week. It didn’t help.

My mom called again. L wanted to see me (and my sister) and get pfts done again. My pfts were basically the same. L came in and talked to us and after a hour or so we were set. The plan is tomorrow (the 31st) I have to do a clean out which is where I have to take a bunch of laxatives to help me get regular. Whenever I have a lung infection it’s usually accompanied by constipation. Anyway I have to be hooked up to my gtube getting go lightly all day and also take 3 other laxatives which are in pill form. I’m going on two antibiotics that I’ve never tried before for a different approach. It treats a type of bacteria which doesn’t show up on cultures. I’m going to be taking two of one antibiotic a day and three of the other one, for ten days, I’ll also no longer be taking the 3 time a week antibiotic at this time. In that ten days I’ll take 80 pills of just antibiotics! I have clinic Friday and if I’m not better by then then I’ll be admitted, the same goes for my sister as well.

I do talk about my health a lot of my blog and sometimes I do repeat stuff so I’m sorry if you’ve already heard about this, but writing about it helps keep my mind from running since it’s now all in one place. Thanks for the support!

Topic #2: School/ Hobbys

So I’m homeschooled, when I say homeschool I mean I do online school. It’s where I have teachers that I can call, text, email and do school work online. There’s different paces so it shows where your at and my teachers usually email me every couple of days with weekly news letters and tips. It’s really helpful since it’s flexible around how I feel. If I had a bad night and I need to sleep in I can, I don’t have to wake up at 5 in the morning and I can do school work at my own pace. It’s also good for appointments so I don’t have to miss school.

It took a while to convince my parents, and I have to do social stuff so right now I’m taking a art class. The thing about this is I’ve been recently missing some because of appointments and my health but what can I do. I want the be involved with animals in my future career but just not a vet. I want to work with animals first to get a feel for it and make sure that’s what I want to do. I want to maybe take a jewelry class and do some more ice skating but not necessarily take a class for it. I don’t really like day camps and stuff but if I find one I like I can give it a try.

I want to pursue my blog more and start selling some of my artwork and jewelry, it’d be a cool thing to do. I want to start getting more involved in the cystic fibrosis community and help fundraise some more and help inspire others. I’ve been playing with the idea of making stuff for kids in the hospital, I know how hard it can be and I was lucky enough to not be in patient at such a young age. I want to make blankets and customize some stuffed animals. I customized one of my stuffed animals with a “picc” and a gtube. It’s my hospital buddy. My friend gave it to me as a gift when I was admitted for the first time almost two years ago.

I’ve recently been into sandbox, a app where it’s basically paint by color, my friends got me into it. I’m uploading some on my blog but I’ll be honest there more for filler posts. I’m not sure if you guys like seeing them or not, I’m trying to post everyday. I need to take time and work hard on some content other than spewing some stuff out. Let me know. I want to spread my horizon with some new art ideas, it can be anything to do with drawing, painting or even topics to write on my blog. If any of you have some ideas just comment them, I’m a fan of trying some new stuff too!

Topic #3: My Dog

I guess I’ll just start typing til I figure out what I’m going to be talking about so I can change the topic name. (It’s currently a question mark) #behind the post, oh how that sounds so cheesy.

Hmm I guess I’ll talk about my dog. Her names mya and we’ve had her for a year. She a chocolate lab and she’s crazy. She doesn’t bite (only on accident) and she’s the perfect size. She’s around 60 pounds but she’s short. She’s a little bit below my knees and I’m almost 5’4, not like I’m tall, I know I’m not! The thing is she’s a pain sometimes. Like I live in the “country” and the houses are spread out. Behind my house is a neighbor who I’m going to call I, now I has a dog named coco, she’s so fluffy and shy but she’s so cute. Mya always goes to play with her and we usually have to go get her. She’s ran to our friends house who lives across the street which doesn’t sound to far but it is where I live. Other than that we’ve had someone call us and someone return her, now those people are far away!

We recently bought her a collar to train her to stay inside our property, we obviously don’t have a fence but it’s at least 2, 2 1/2 acres of land.

She likes to bark at everything out our kitchen door (glass doors). She’ll let us know whenever there a squirrel or deer or even just the wind. She’s not a very “talkative” dog but she can when she wants to. We took her to a training class for a month or so and it didn’t help that much, we might take her to it again.

(BTP (behind the post) maybe I could do a picture compilation of her once a week..hmmm…ideas ideas)

Anyways here’s a picture of her, she’s usually not this calm or cuddly.

Topic #4: Horror Movies

WARNING, CONTAINS SPOILERS

Me, Annabelle and V have been watching horror movies since V loves them and I want to like them. So far I’ve watched

1. (Half) of the shining

2. A quiet place

3. The boy

4. The open house

5. The forest

So I’m going to reveal them in a non official way…

1. The shining

So far I don’t find it that interesting, it’s this guy that took a job as a caretaker for a retreat in the mountains. The last person that took care of it went crazy and killed his family. This guy goes crazy too and try’s to kill his family but they end up escaping with the help of one of the employees that works in the resort during the spring time with lots of things happening including there son being possessed by something, like I said before I don’t know the detail of how it ends. I know I said I only watched half of it but we stopped watching it because it was boring, but my friends told me the rest, (but not specific details).

2. A quiet place

10/10 would recommend, it’s the future and these aliens have taken over, their blind but they have super hearing. Millions have died and who knows how many are still alive. I’m not going to spoil this one because it’s new. John Krasinski or who I like to call Jim was not only one of the directors but also the main character.

3. The Boy

It’s about a doll. Not really. It seems possessed but like my fiend kept telling me you’ll see. It’s about two parents who lost a son from a house fire, to help them cope they got a doll that looked just like him. He would eat, learn, listen to music, and move. The couple puts him in the hands of a nanny and she doesn’t realize what’s she getting into. At first she didn’t follow any of the rules which include feeding it, reading it story’s, homeschooling it, talking to it, ect. Then weird stuff keeps happening. She eventually thinks she’s going crazy until her and the grocery delivery guy figure out it actually moves. Turns out the son was crazy and living in the attic the whole time, eating the food, turning on the music, moving the doll to make it seem like it was alive all while getting through the walls of the mansion. Enough said I was relieved by the end of the movie to find out that there were no ghosts or spirits involved.

#4. The open house

To sum it up and not spoil it to much a family who just lost a father and husband temporarily move to a relatives cottage while it’s in the selling process. Weird stuff keeps happening and it turns out there’s a serial killer who goes from one open house to another and killing them. I won’t ruin the ending too much, if you want to know, look it up.

#5 The forest

A twin sister goes into the suicide forest in Japan with a class of her students, she wanders off. When her sister finds out the news she goes and looks for her. Soon weird things start to happen and some stuff goes down. Watch it to find out because I’m not spoiling this since it wasn’t made too long ago.

Topic #5: Random

I’ve probably spent a hour or so writing this. It’s currently 11pm and my dogs going crazy. Oh ya me and my sister finally redid our room. It’s not relevant but this is called random for a reason.

End of explanation

That’s all for now, bye!

Dear V

This is to my best friend in the whole wide world, cheers to our 5 year anniversary!

Dear V,

You are one of the most funny, caring, and supporting person I’ve ever met. You mean the world to me and I don’t know what’d I do without you. I’m so glad I met you. Other than my sister your the closest person to me. We’ve been through a lot together and you’ve always been there for me. We’ve had so many great memories together and late night talks. Like making a cake at midnight🍰and having spa days🥒and filming funny videos together📸. I remember when we first met, I’m glad it happened. Remember you even came over that day and we killed our grass with baking soda and vinegar and then Annabelle had water come out of her nose. You visit us in the hospital whenever we’re admitted and help me get through tough times. Remember when we were in the big courtyard just outside the hospital and Annabelle was being weird and her iv pole tipped over. Or when we rode on them. We always go on walks and talk for hours or watch movies. Or swimming at the high school pool and always getting Dairy Queen or pizza after. Sleepovers where we play board games, watch movies, film videos, and clean your room, or clean out our closet for the 100th time. Listening to music and talk or just sing along, doing our own things. We don’t even have to talk we just hang out and enjoy each others company.

Remember the story from this photo, and oh yes I’m going to tell it on the internet, we went downtown and wanted to try on dresses, we went to the two dress stores and you said oh it’s for a horse banquet but really we were just looking, and the lady kept asking if we needed help. And the next store we went to the lady was a jerk.

Remember spending New Years together and having a photoshoot. We seemed so young in this picture.

I love your inappropriate jokes and funny comebacks. Your like my older sister that I’ve never had and your my family. I love you❤️, and thanks for always being there even if your a pain in the butt sometimes😂

How I met my Best Friend

The Story of how I met my Best Friend (well one of them)

I was in 4th grade, just starting at a new school since I moved. The day went fine, well as fine as a new elementary school can go. Since I am awesome, and probably because I have a twin, everyone kept coming up to us and asking to be our friend. Now they were nice girls, which changed soon enough, but that’s not what I’m talking about. This is the story of how I met my best friend.

Two weeks or so after that we started riding the bus. Now at our old school there weren’t any busses so it was me and my sisters first time. What we didn’t know was there would be a awesome girl we would soon meet that lived right across the street. Her name is Vanessa, V for short.

When the time came to go home I was very nervous to ride the bus. We got on everything was fine. We started talked to a girl who was very nice halfway through the ride. She gave us her number on a purple piece of paper, I don’t know how I remember this. We asked her where she lived and it turned out we lived on the same street! We were all so happy we finally could live by a girl around our age (V is a year older than me and my sister).

Both of our parents were at the bus stop. We asked our mom if she could come over and she said sure, and so did her dad. We hung out the whole rest of the day and it was great! Turns out she lives directly across the street from us too. We are still friends now so around 4 or 5 hears later.
