Sindy's Blog - March 18, 2004

March 18, 2004

OMG! Would you believe that A.J. and I won first place at the science fair?! I know I seemed really confident last week that we would win, but to tell you the truth, I didn't actually think it would happen. But it did! And now we're on our way to the districts! This is so super cool.

Kaelin took A.J. and I out for burgers to celebrate on Friday night, which was a lot of fun. Mom and Dad both wanted to take me out too but they settled for celebrating on the weekend instead. You wouldn't believe what a crazy weekend I had. It seemed like non-stop partying - all because of a stupid volcano... Not that I'm complaining.

A.J. and I figure we need to re-do some of our posters and stuff, make them more glittery and flashy if we wanna win this next competition. Man, those guys from my bio class were not happy when we won. One of the dudes even threw their project in the dumpster behind the gym! What a bunch of losers. I mean, if I had of lost, I would totally have been bummed - but there's no reason to act like a baby about it.

It feels like all I've been doing for the past few weeks is living and breathing science. I guess it's gonna be like that for a little while longer, since the districts are next week. Next week! That is so soon. I think I'm just going to hang with Kaelin this weekend. I've gone from totally ignoring A.J. to totally ignoring Kaelin. I'm surprised he's still waiting around for me - I still don't know how I snagged him...

Ok, going to go check out the American Idol polls and see whose in the lead. Have you guys voted yet?

Peace Out,

Sindy

    @rainbowpoptart  When I originally talked to my father, I was given the opportunity of good timing to bring it up. Luckily, there was no anger like I was partially expecting and I remained calm, which I definitely wasn't expecting. My fathers main concern was just worry and having seen other teens run away from something later getting themselves in trouble. He even brought up how he had run off at 18 and joined the Air Force, which I already knew. But, with this round, there is no perfect time to bring it up and he's always busy or we're having to do something so it's just very frustrating to find at least alright timing to bring it up, if that makes sense.

    My advice on this may not be the best because I haven't personally dealt with this yet, but... Parents, or guardians, get used to having their children around. You're [usually] with them for 18 years, which is a long time, so of course they - or in this case, your father - is going to feel like he's lost something very dear to him once you move out. To me it seems like he does truly understand that you're growing up. He just doesn't want it to happen. He knows that you're leaving soon - he just doesn't want it to be soon. Parents/guardians who are close to the children usually feel that way. If you're really so concerned, talk to him about it again, in a similar way you have done already. Or perhaps just a "Wow, my birthday is just around the corner". Once you do move out, visit him as frequently as you're able to and feel like. I'm sure he'll appreciate it, and it'll help you maintain a close relationship with him.

    Usually I wouldn't come here for advice, but I am really needing it. To sum it up, my birthday is in 21 days. Not only will I be leaving KW, but home as well. My mother has made it to where I have had plans to leave since I was around 11 or 12; so about 7 to 8 years. I won't get into everything, but we'll just say that my mother and I do not have a good relationship at all. My father on the other hand, I am very attached too and always scared of upsetting him. Things are not always very good between us at times, but we rarely fight. When we do, it is always bad nor ends well. So, having plans to move out are very scary to me and causes me plenty of anxiety that fights are going to break out when I have my help to get my belongings out.   For the record, I have talked to my father about leaving, why I want too, etc. But, more in the sense of that I want too, not that I am. Which, in a way, my parents understand I'm moving out as well as already pretty much know where I'm going without my mention. But, I don't think they, my father especially, understands how soon that is despite my saying of I want too when I'm 18 or when I say, "Soon." It doesn't help that my father told another that his "little girl is growing up" on him and that he is scared of the day I go because he will be alone. Which makes me feel guilty despite the fact I won't even be that far away. How should I talk to him once more and go about this or even when? I really want him to understand that I have thought everything through and that I will be in safe hands.
