Sindy's Blog - May 6, 2004

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

    Dear Dish-It:  I recently became friends with an upperclassman guy, Tom*, from my high school. We started hanging out about a month or so ago. To be honest, I thought the relationship was platonic: we've never flirted although we've bantered, I don't use flirty emojis with him and although I spend a lot of time with him, he has always said how much I remind him of my brother (who is the same age as me), and he's never stolen glances at me or given me the impression that he was into me that way. I rationalized that he saw me as a little sister the same way as I viewed him as an older brother, since he constantly made references to my brother and never attempted to flirt nor gave off any of the typical visual signals of attraction. I also don't see myself as someone who'd be attractive or crush-worthy from the perspective of a high school junior, since I'm a freshman in high school and definitely not modelesque, and we pretty much stuck to group outings. So when he asked me out 2 weeks ago, needless to say it came as a surprise. We decided to remain friends, but I'm having trouble establishing boundaries, especially since my sister informed me that one of his friends told her that Tom "wasn't going to give up on me" and that Tom was going to adhere to the "Three Strikes Rule": apparently, he can wait and ask me out 2 more times before giving up on pursuing me.  Dish-It, how do I remain friends with this guy without this becoming awkward? What do I do? Just this past weekend he wanted to s**pe call me and kept s.n.a.p.ch*tting me. I literally feigned accidentally sleeping in yesterday to avoid meeting up with him (he invited my siblings and I to go play tennis at our high school), and I haven't talked to him since Saturday (we do track together so it was kind of unavoidable). I need space, and I want to remain friends, but he's really making me feel uncomfortable.  Thanks, -Perks. P.S.: This is the second junior who has asked me out this year (and the second guy I've rejected). Maybe I'm just really naive and oblivious, but I genuinely don't see myself as attractive to guys...how do I stop accidentally leading them on? Because I'm not trying to, really-I'm not flirty or anything. I have no idea why they like me, I don't think I'm being overly nice and I'm not answering texts right away or anything. This guy didn't get my phone information from me, he got it from another person on our coed sports team and he originally texted me 2 months ago to tell me that he was worried about my brother so I didn't think he was making a move on me. *Names have been changed for privacy reasons. (Also: the chat filter keeps unnecessarily censoring my writing).
