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.

    I hope you don't mind that I moved this to friends, but I thought it'd be more fitting since your question seems mainly friendship based. :) Do you mind being younger than your classmates? Do you feel it inhibits your school experience? I think you should do what feels best to you, whether that be staying behind because friendship has a big impact, or continuing ahead if you prioritize academic growth. Only you know what's right for you. :p If it's any help, I left high school early and went to college. I was already used to being the youngest in my class so it wasn't a huge jump socially, and I found a lot of friends of all ages. :D With that being said, I do still miss being with people my age but it's too late to go back and I wouldn't trade my experience for the world.

    I'm 13 and will be going on to 9th grade. I skipped kindergarted  :p and 5th grade. So I'm a lot younger then most of my classmates will be. I'm thinking of repeating 8th grade so I will be more of the same age as the other people in my class. But I'm not sure if I should because I got a B+ or A- average in 8th grade. I need some advice on this. Sorry if this is the wrong section for this I just thought general was the right place. Thanks!  :D

    I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)
