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'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...

    I don't know. It honestly could be that she likes you, or she is just a really good friend.
