I'm not a pro in illustrator so I don't fully know the correct terminology but this morning I opened it and it looks like this. how do I turn off all those green guides and how to I reset the canvas to make it so the outside is gray and only the inside white? I've tried resetting and that didn't do anything

You've opened a Video and Film document profile.

Simply close the document and open a new document using a profile other than the Video and Film profile. For just general drawing the Print profile works best for me, but the Basic RGB or Basic CMYK may work well for you also.
