Sindy's Blog - April 22, 2004

April 22, 2004

School has been pretty crazy lately. It seems like I get one project out of the way just so another teacher can give me something else to do! Me and Kaelin seem to be back on track so at least I don't have to stress about that right now. Things have been really great with us, and A.J. and Jake really seem to be hitting it off too.

Nothing has happened yet between them, but I think something's gonna happen. All four of us have been hanging out a lot lately and they seem so great for each other. Plus, it's summer coming up and it would just be so great if the four of us could hang out and do fun summer stuff, you know? Like, head to the beach and go to the amusement park and get slushies together all the time. Maybe I am getting ahead of myself - I do still have a couple months of school left.

There is one little glitch in my perfect summer plan - the 'rents are bound and determined to have a repeat performance of our crazy vacation last year. And that is not something I am up for. They want it to be all four of us too. I'm sorry, do they not remember what happened last year? A couple weeks in a car together drove them to get a divorce! Yeah, that sure sounds like a super-great time. I've already made it clear that they can count me out on that one.

Maybe I will look for a summer job. I'm sure Mom and Dad wouldn't want to ruin a good job opportunity for me by taking me away for weeks on end with them. Hmmm... that might work. I wonder what I could do, though? Get a babysitting gig, start mowing some lawns, a lemonade stand... oh, I guess it's not so cool for someone my age to set up a lemonade stand. Well, if anyone has some ideas for me, I'm all ears.

Peace Out,

Sindy

    Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

    Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!

    You go out and you find someone who you can be you with. It's not a hard question to find the answer too.
