Sindy's Blog - December 16, 2004

December 16, 2004

Simon might have gotten a dog this Thanksgiving, but I finally talked my mom into letting me have a small pet. We went and picked her up yesterday at the pet store and she is soooo cute. Oh yeah, she's a chinchilla and her name is Penelope. And, she is all mine! I don't have to share her with Amy which is so great.

Yeah, I've never actually had a pet before so this is kind of new to me. I mean I get the whole give them water and food part but I don't totally know what else I should be doing. She's small and I can hold her when I want, but for the most part she's supposed to stay in her cage. Mom's still a little worried that she's going to wake up in the middle of the night with Penelope crawling across her face. Moms can be so dramatic.

I still haven't had a chance to show Penelope to Kaelin - I think he's really going to love her. I think A.J. would really love her too but she's still not talking to me. I honestly do not know what her problem is! I think Anna is going to come over after school tomorrow to study, so at least I'll be able to show her.

I have this make-shift cage for Penelope right now, but I guess I should buy her a real one. I wonder if the people at the pet store could help me pick stuff for her. Probably. Do any of you have a chinchilla? I know they're a little exotic, but I just didn't really want a hamster or anything like that. if you have any tips!

Peace Out,

Sindy

    I hope you don't mind that I moved this to friends, but I thought it'd be more fitting since your question seems mainly friendship based. :) Do you mind being younger than your classmates? Do you feel it inhibits your school experience? I think you should do what feels best to you, whether that be staying behind because friendship has a big impact, or continuing ahead if you prioritize academic growth. Only you know what's right for you. :p If it's any help, I left high school early and went to college. I was already used to being the youngest in my class so it wasn't a huge jump socially, and I found a lot of friends of all ages. :D With that being said, I do still miss being with people my age but it's too late to go back and I wouldn't trade my experience for the world.

    I'm 13 and will be going on to 9th grade. I skipped kindergarted  :p and 5th grade. So I'm a lot younger then most of my classmates will be. I'm thinking of repeating 8th grade so I will be more of the same age as the other people in my class. But I'm not sure if I should because I got a B+ or A- average in 8th grade. I need some advice on this. Sorry if this is the wrong section for this I just thought general was the right place. Thanks!  :D

    I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)
