Sindy's Blog - January 12, 2006

January 12, 2006

Ugh! Back to school and back to homework. Even with two weeks off I still don't feel like I've had long enough of a break. Simon says I should stop complaining so much because at least it's not as cold in California as it is in Detroit. I guess he kind of has a point.

I gave Simon a call on New Year's Day because one of my New Year's resolutions is to keep in better contact with my friends. I know we live kind of far apart but it's not like we can't pick up a phone once and a while. He agreed that we should start paying more attention to what's going on in each other's lives. Like, I totally forgot that it was just his mom's birthday a few weeks ago and I usually get her a card and stuff. I felt so dumb. We're going to start planning a visit soon. Maybe we can do it on Spring Break. We have no idea what we're going to do yet but at least we're thinking about it.

I'm usually not that big on making resolutions but this year just seemed like the one to make some real goals. I'm going to try and stop picking on Amy so much (this one is going to be the hardest!), make a little more effort in gym class and take up a new hobby. I still haven't decided what my hobby is going to be but I figured that I would try out a bunch in January before I commit myself to one thing. I'm thinking something artsy like a pottery class or maybe work on meditating. We'll see.

Did any of you make a New Year's resolution? Are you going to work harder in school this semester? Stop arguing with your parents? about what your goals are for the year!

Peace Out,

Sindy

    @rainbowpoptart  When I originally talked to my father, I was given the opportunity of good timing to bring it up. Luckily, there was no anger like I was partially expecting and I remained calm, which I definitely wasn't expecting. My fathers main concern was just worry and having seen other teens run away from something later getting themselves in trouble. He even brought up how he had run off at 18 and joined the Air Force, which I already knew. But, with this round, there is no perfect time to bring it up and he's always busy or we're having to do something so it's just very frustrating to find at least alright timing to bring it up, if that makes sense.

    My advice on this may not be the best because I haven't personally dealt with this yet, but... Parents, or guardians, get used to having their children around. You're [usually] with them for 18 years, which is a long time, so of course they - or in this case, your father - is going to feel like he's lost something very dear to him once you move out. To me it seems like he does truly understand that you're growing up. He just doesn't want it to happen. He knows that you're leaving soon - he just doesn't want it to be soon. Parents/guardians who are close to the children usually feel that way. If you're really so concerned, talk to him about it again, in a similar way you have done already. Or perhaps just a "Wow, my birthday is just around the corner". Once you do move out, visit him as frequently as you're able to and feel like. I'm sure he'll appreciate it, and it'll help you maintain a close relationship with him.

    Usually I wouldn't come here for advice, but I am really needing it. To sum it up, my birthday is in 21 days. Not only will I be leaving KW, but home as well. My mother has made it to where I have had plans to leave since I was around 11 or 12; so about 7 to 8 years. I won't get into everything, but we'll just say that my mother and I do not have a good relationship at all. My father on the other hand, I am very attached too and always scared of upsetting him. Things are not always very good between us at times, but we rarely fight. When we do, it is always bad nor ends well. So, having plans to move out are very scary to me and causes me plenty of anxiety that fights are going to break out when I have my help to get my belongings out.   For the record, I have talked to my father about leaving, why I want too, etc. But, more in the sense of that I want too, not that I am. Which, in a way, my parents understand I'm moving out as well as already pretty much know where I'm going without my mention. But, I don't think they, my father especially, understands how soon that is despite my saying of I want too when I'm 18 or when I say, "Soon." It doesn't help that my father told another that his "little girl is growing up" on him and that he is scared of the day I go because he will be alone. Which makes me feel guilty despite the fact I won't even be that far away. How should I talk to him once more and go about this or even when? I really want him to understand that I have thought everything through and that I will be in safe hands.
