Sindy's Blog - October 16, 2003

October 16, 2003

Had to go to my dad's this weekend. How weird! I've been trying to prepare myself for this visit to his new apartment and I really didn't think it would be that big of a deal. But it was. I'm hoping it will get easier but I am really dreading having to go back there!

Mom dropped Amy and me off at Dad's on Friday night. It was okay - we watched some TV, ordered in pizza and Amy told Dad all about what she is doing in school right now. Dad had set up a couple of beds in his spare room for us and said we could go shopping in the morning to get some things to jazz the place up. We thought that could be fun, so agreed and headed to bed.

It wasn't that it was totally painful, it just was a little uncomfortable. Dad was just trying too hard to get us to be happy. He kept suggesting things and throwing stuff in the cart that neither of us wanted. It was getting a little out of control so I told him to calm down. This did not go over well. He just let go of the cart and walked away. We followed him out to the car and we never did get anything to go in our room.

Later he apologized and said he was just trying to make this easier on us. I know he doesn't want this to be awkward, but it is. There's nothing he can do about it. I'm sure we will all settle into our new routine eventually, but for now I think we will hold off on the massive re-decoration of the room at my dad's place. We'll just gradually bring some stuff over and soon enough it will feel more like home.

I think I smell freshly-baked, chocolate chip cookies. Wonder what's up with that? Mom doesn't usually bake. Better go test 'em out and then brainstorm on my Halloween costume. Still not sure what I want to be?

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    TimeToStartOver
    So I have a secret, and it could ruin all of my best online relationships if revealed. I'm not going to say much about it, because it is, after all, a secret. But I'm pretending to be two people at once, so neither one is really truly myself- they both contain different aspects of me. I didn't think I'd grow close to anybody with my second persona, but then I did, and all this mess started. It's been going on for maybe three months now, that I've been pretending to be two people. I don't want to tell anyone, because it could ruin my friendships. But i don't want to keep it a secret anymore, either.

    I'm going to a new school this year for 7th grade. Its scary because the reviews online say that the kids do nasty things there, and I just want to be accepted for who I am. I want to be the one person that every one feels comfortable talking to..but the issue is, I am shy around people I do not know and it causes me to be an introvert when I can be such a social butterfly. All I need is that one friend and i'll feel on top of the world. How do I make friends and get them to accept me for who I am? The thing that most people talk about is LGBT and to be honest, I have no preference. I could date a boy or a girl. That would make it even harder to gain friends. Please help ;-; I am a potato. A shy potato :3

To change your eye color, you will need to either wear contacts during the day to appear that you have different colored eyes than you truly have, or medically having a doctor perform surgical iris correction.

    I hope you texted back if you felt that it would be the right thing to do for yourself. I did not have a good childhood due to my birthmother and father. But, in recent time, I have come to enjoy talking to my birthfather and completely cannot stand my birthmother or her new husband anymore. I plan to actually meet him for the first time in 16 years if I can join my fiancé's family vacation.  Point of the matter, do what you feel is right. If you want to talk to him; talk to him. If you don't, don't reply if you don't feel comfortable too. It is purely your choice who you allow in your life, even when it comes down to blood and family.

    It isn't pathetic in the slightest to seek help. I don't think it is right for your mother and siblings to completely disown you over your choice of living arrangements. If they have pushed you away, remember that it is not your fault and it is purely theirs. You made a choice that you felt would benefit you, and judging from their behavior, it was a good choice. As for your father, I don't fight with my own very much, but when I do it tends to be pretty bad. My mother on the other hand, I fight with constantly so I understand where you're coming from. You shouldn't have to do anything. From the sound of it, it seems more like a personal issue going on with himself, especially a sense of shame or regret with his previous exes so he uses you as an outlet because you're the closest thing he has.  I say find an outlet, a healthy one. Sometimes it is best to let them ramble on until they wear themselves out, but remember that self-defense and "talking back" is not always a bad thing just because they are your guardian. It is important to take a stand for yourself. Be respectful, don't sink to their level.
