Check out Sindy's free online teen journal this week to find out about her summer plans.
Sindy Blogs About Her New Summer Job!

Say goodbye to Sindy the student and say hello to Sindy the [kwlink]babysitter[/kwlink]. That's right - starting in just a few short weeks I am going to be responsible for taking care of a couple little brats for the entire summer! Can you believe it!? I guess I should stop calling them brats though. I doubt that the kind of thing parents like to hear. I still can't really believe that I actually have a job. It kind of just fell in my lap.

Ok, so my job searching has mostly consisted of me surfing the web and usually getting off track... you know how tempting checking your email and messaging your friends is. But then, just last week I was sitting in the kitchen when I overheard my mom talking to her friend from work, Barb, and it sounded like Barb was looking to put her kids in daycare for the summer. I flew out of my seat as fast as I could and started waving my arms in front of my mom's face - by the way, she really hates it when I do that! - and finally she asked what I wanted. So I said if Barb needed someone to watch her kids, I would love to do it. And guess what? They both thought that was an awesome idea!

The next day I went over and met the bra..., uh, kids and they actually are really great. Adam is three and Samantha is five. She's a bit bossy but I think we'll get along just fine. I'm gonna be watching them afterschool starting in at the end of May until school's out and then I will watch them all day long Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Crazy huh? I've never had a job before. I've done a bit of babysitting here and there but never anything this intense. Hopefully I will be able to handle it.

Kaelin seemed a bit pissy when I told him about my summer adventure. He thought that we would just spend the entire summer lounging and hanging out around town. I already told him that either I was getting a job or the 'rents were going to make me head on vacation with them, so I don't know why he is kicking up a fuss. I will still be in the city now and maybe he can even help me out sometimes. Boys. You can't live with them and you're really bored without them. *Sigh...*

Peace Out,

Sindy

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.  Hi there. I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it. Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)  You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them. When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.  If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger. Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.  Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me, Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
