Sindy's Blog - September 11, 2003

September 11, 2003

There's a weird vibe in the air today. No one seems to know how to act around each other. It's been two years since the World Trade Towers fell, but it sure doesn't feel like it was that long ago. Being on the West Coast, it's harder to identify with how peeps in New York must feel right now.

We had an assembly at school today - we watched a video that basically just replayed all the images we've all seen a million times. Personally though, I really don't need to see them over and over, and over. I think there are better ways to deal with it, you know? After the assembly we had a big lunch in the cafeteria with a bunch of local fire fighters, police and stuff, which was pretty cool. It was a nice way of letting them know that we appreciate the job they do for us everyday.

I'd much rather have the day focus on stuff like thanking the fire fighters and police for doin' a good job than have September 11th turn into a day to point blame. And unfortunately, that's what it feels like to me. There were so many people in the halls just goin' off about their hate for the Middle East. I doubt most of 'em even know where the Middle East is. It's just stupid.

I don't understand why we can't think of a better way to deal with death and anger than fighting it with more death and anger. Doesn't that seem counter-productive? I can't talk to the 'rents about what I think though cuz they are really unreasonable when it comes to this stuff. They think they know it all and that war is always the answer. It's so frustrating!

I think I'm just gonna hang-out by myself in my room tonight. Maybe write some poetry. Get all this weird energy onto paper and out of my brain.

    the struggle is real try out some different kinds of eyeliner, too. I'm terrible at gel, personally. but liquid is easier I find. Practice is key, although it can get super frustrating

    It's best to just ask. No one or no thing can really tell you for sure unless you're upfront about it.

    A random guy did that to me once too. Turned out he had a huge crush on me and we ended up being close friends. Just ask around to find out who he is.

    Has she talked about wanting anything in particular, or do you remember her looking at something before? Try to remember something she wanted and look for that or something similar.

    I don't think a boy is worth losing your best friend. Talk to her about it more maybe?
