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

    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 ...
