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

The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away. They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there. that's a good point.
