December Waffle Party (End Of Year Edition + Resolutions That I May Or May Not Keep + Party Playlist + Confetti)


2016 IS OVER. Usually I’m freaking out when a year comes to a close because I’m standing over here with a very confused expression like “???? WHERE DID THE TIME GO” but tbh this year I don’t feel like that. This year was full of adventure and change and, looking back, it feels like a full and beautiful year. So today we’re having a waffle party (OBVIOUSLY) but it’s a special waffle party because IT’S NEW YEARS EVE, YO. And we all know that the coolest people party on New Year’s Eve by eating too many waffles then driving back to their respective homes under the influence of maple syrup. I’M ONE OF THOSE COOL PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY. Let’s get this party started.


BEHOLD! The most popular posts of 2016!

 ... 
 ... 

RandyAbby completely mesmerized me with this post that I’m obviously too speechless to explain.

Erin blew me away with her thoughts about self-love and grace and omg yes just asdfghjkl I cannot handle it.

The lovely Pepper Sage interviewed me on her blog! Needless to say it was fabulous because I got to flail about music and waffles.

Olivia did it again. And if you don’t know what “it” means you could replace that word for “blew my mind.”

Ashlyn wrote an incredible anthem of beauty on Burning Youth and it made my soul cry happy delicious tears. <3

I WANTED TO FIND EVERY AWESOME POST FROM Y’ALL THIS YEAR and make like a huge roundup thing but WHERE DID THE TIME GO? Oh yes I forgot it’s a small bird with very fast flying skills. GOODBYE THEN TIME. Maybe next year. Y’all are awesome though. Thank you for inspiring me with amazing content forever and always. :’)

I’ve written down 1,200+ words of New Year Resolutions and I intend to KEEP THEM ALL. Obviously I overcommit to things and obviously one of my basic goals is to STOP OVER-COMMITTING.* Another one of my basic goals is to stop over-complicating things. BECAUSE BRO, I OVER-COMPLICATE THINGS A LOT. I can somehow find eight hundred sides on a square. WHY??? I NEED HELP. I NEED TO CALM DOWN. I NEED TO SIMPLIFY.

I started taking Karate! And BRO IT’S AWESOME. My sister and I are both taking lessons, thus we get to beat up on each other at home. (Don’t worry, nobody has gotten hurt…unless you consider bloody knuckles “getting hurt” ahem.) But Karate makes me feel powerful and that is obviously fabulous. *flips hair* Until I'm standing around in class and I don't know where to place myself. Then I don't feel too fabulous.



I shoveled an ice rink with my dad. Because I live RIGHT ON a lake and it’s an absolute tundra right now. The ice is incredibly smooth and did I ever mention that I kind of figure skate?? LOL YEP I HAVE A SECRET LIFE. Maybe someday I’ll post a video if y’all are curious. ;)

*And obviously all of this makes perfect sense DO NOT QUESTION IF YOU EVER WANT TO SEE A WAFFLE AGAIN.

I’ve put together a six month writing plan for myself. Not kidding. I JUST LIKE TO THINK AHEAD, OK?? If I pace myself and don’t get too distracted by plot bunnies (THEY TAKE OVER MY LIFE TBH) then I’ll have three finished and polished novels before my birthday! LOL I CAN DREAM OK I CAN DREAM.

2017 waits for me with a mountain of editing. That’s right, bro. My first task is to FINISH LINE EDITING MY FIRST NOVEL which could be a crazy amount of work.* I have about 50k to get through but when that’s done YO I’M GETTING A COPY OF THIS THING PRINTED and my parents are going to read it. And I’m going to panic very loudly in the corner and bite my fingernails and eat chocolate and pretend I’m not a writer.

*LOL WHO AM I KIDDING of course it’s going to be a crazy amount of work and idk how I’ll survive it. Maybe with lots of tea and waffles?? SEND ME TEA AND WAFFLES, FRENS. 

In case you didn’t see, I posted my first cover song onChristmas! OF COURSE IT WAS CHRISTMAS SONG WHAT DO YOU EXPECT. But the exciting news is that I PLAN ON GIVING Y’ALL ONE COVER PER MONTH IN 2017. EEEEEEEEEEEP I’M EXCITED. So excited that I may or may not continue to use proper grammar.


Is this going to slow down the process of recording my album?? The short answer is no. The long answer is: because I’m going to be focusing more intently on my arts (writing, music, and waffle-making) I’m not going to have quite as much time to dedicate to blogging. I’M NOT ABANDONING YOU GUYS I SWEAR. But I am going to be a little more absent than I have been these past few months. BUT I PROMISE IT WILL PAY OFF. Just stick around and I’ll feed you waffles and everything will be wonderful. <3

IT'S SO FESTIVE I COULD CRI. :')


A WAFFLE PARTY ISN’T A WAFFLE PARTY WITHOUT MUSIC. AM I RIGHT?? Also y’all should know that my sister has dared me to include at least one punk rock song. I am not incredibly versed in punk rock. BUT YO THESE ARE PARTY TUNES. What basis have I for that daring claim? You can dance around your room by yourself in your empty house to this music. (This is my idea of a party obviously.) ALSO SPOTIFY LETS YOU ADD YOUR OWN COVER ART NOW ISN’T THAT AMAZING SASDFGHJKSAFLSKJA. Don’t mind me I’m just lowkey freaking out over here.



HAPPY NEW YEAR FRENS. What are some of your resolutions? Do you have any big plans for 2017?? CAN YOU EVEN FATHOM THAT THE YEAR IS OVER??? Are you excited for the new fun things I have planned for y’all? Hint: YOU SHOULD BE. Party hard, stay safe, and don’t drink too much maple syrup!!

love,
abbiee

  5. Honestly I'm just trying to step up to the plate and look 2017 in the eyes and be like 'BRING IT BRO.' Because I think this is my first year to make concrete resolutions? DEFINITELY NOT FREAKING OUT.

    This six month writing plan actually sounds SUPER HELPFUL THOUGH. I should probably do something like that to stay focused, hehe. Because I have to finish a book by June and does this mean I have time for plot bunnies. LOL NOPE. Does this mean I probably will try and make time for plot bunnies? LOL OF COURSE.

  6. *eats waffles* (and one of these years I'm going to buy a waffle maker for my family for Christmas)

    Yes! One of my 2017 goals is not to over-think over-complicate things and learn how to shut down my brain at times so I can just RELAX and not plot until midnight ;-)

    And your Christmas song... Abbiee, my eyes were smarting! So beautiful!

    Happy New Year!!!!

  7. Eeek! Karate sounds awesome and I'm jealous. I'm also jealous of living on a lake because that sounds fun and a little dangerous??? Also you are kind of like Elizabeth from your short story As Cold As??? Like with the figure-skating... Was she based off of you?

    1. OMG YES KARATE IS AWESOME. *nod nod* And eeep I'M SO HONORED THAT YOU THOUGHT OF MY STORY eeeep I want to say kind of?? Like Elizabeth's character is definitely way different from me but the idea for that story did come to me when I was shoveling an ice rink once!! SO YES LOL IT WAS RATHER INSPIRED. :')

Good luck with your goals for the new year! ^.^ Also -- YAY FOR WAFFLES!! I'm sort of new to the blogspot/blogger community, but my sister introduced me to your blog.

  11. AHHHHH I LITERALLY DID NOT EVEN KNOW IT WAS THE END OF THE YEAR. How pathetic is that?? I've been enjoying my time off of school I kind of convinced myself I was in a time warp and 2016 would never end and I'd be forever stuck in December. Which wouldn't be bad except I don't like the cold SOOOOOO.

    May your 2017 be full of waffles.

    Happy New Year, fren! i'm so glad i discovered your blog this year and got to join the ranks of those you heap waffles upon. :3 i haven't thought a lot about resolutions (yet) but one is to finish my novel by my birthday (which is in March *squeaks in terror*) and, in the words of something i found on pinterest, 'to apply each and every lesson 2016 taught me.'

  16. I'm super glad that waffles is counted in your "making art" because obviously FOOD IS THE GREAT THING WE HAVE IN THIS WORLD. #legit Art is nice too, of course. Like writing and music and thingies *nods sagely* BUT FOOD.
    (Also your posts are so pretty. ALWAYS SO PRETTY.)
    (And yaaaas Built by Titan. <3)
    Ooh, karate is awesome! I've never done anything like that before but a small teeny tiny part of me thinks it would be rather awesome.😂 Also excellent writing research, yes?!
    I don't particularly have any huge plans for 2017....except like keep on, keepin' on, you know? I hope to write a sheer ton of words and maaaaaybe not have my TBR flooding my brain and I'd like to start a reading journal but WHO KNOWS if I will or if I can keep it up. I'm so lazy.😂

You don't know how many times I've cluelessly written fight scenes while googling self-defense tactics and ughhh it's messy. xD PLUS KARATE IS SUCH FUN. Ooh a reading journal sounds so cool!!

    ^ An accurate description of my New Year's. No, but seriously, I tried to get my friends to make me some waffles/pancakes at like 2:00 in the morning...but they didn't. WHY PEOPLE WHY

    In other news: you're taking karate?! Radical! My sister and I trained in the martial arts a long time ago and even got our black belts; it is just the best sport. It makes you feel so powerful and it's also just so beautiful and goodness, I just love karate. I hope you enjoy it!! And I love that you set novel goals, yo. I just set a goal for myself of finishing my novel by my birthday, so I know how you feel.

  25. Your thing about overcomplicating things is very relatable for me. And the calming down part. And the simplifying. I'm pretty sure it's a hopeless cause so if you find any magic trick, please, please, tell me.

    I would love to watch a video of you figure skating! I'm debating whether I'm going to the ice rink this year or not...I'm the sort of person who dies there because my knees really love hanging out on the ice...

Hey, you know that reminds me of this story I read and then read to my best friend and just LOVED to ABSOLUTE DEATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was written by a FANTILIANT human being, who, crazily enough LOOKS ACTS AND IS THE EXACT SAME AS YOU! weird huh? Almost like you're the same person! ;) (my friend loved it by the way! she too thought it ended much too soon! it was too perfect to end!!)

    Ugh, lots of horrid things have been happening. In Nicaragua (we're back for a short stay, I might mention) we didn't have a waffle maker so i spent WEEEEEEEEEEKS withOUT waffles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *cue scary music and horror movie screams*
    When we came back, I finally got to have some (my mum has a DOUBLE WAFFLE MAKER. YES, IT MAKES WAFFLES TWO AT A TIME) but then I got sick and couldn't eat ANYTHING! sigh. sad sad life.
    Well, Happy New Year!!!!! Looking forward to hearing more from your creative awesome and fantastic self!!!

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
