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

    Tell him, but not like "Hi, I like you" Ease it into a conversation, maybe with a joke?
