Sindy blogs about her plan to work as a camp counselor this summer! What are your summer job plans?

May 11, 2006

Since I last blogged I've really been working on putting my camp counselor plan into action! I've worked on my resume and added all my new work experience to it. Next thing on my list is to start applying for jobs.

Kidzworld member, llama lover suggested I start out working at a day camp, which I may end up doing. I'm not sure yet. I kind of like the idea of heading away for the summer - taking a break from my family and my always-too-busy boyfriend. I just think what I need right now is to meet new people and try new things, you know?

I'm thinking of applying at camps that are totally remote. I'd love to spend my summer on a mountain lake, teaching kids to swim and singing around the campfire every night! I am still a little young to be a full-fledged camp counselor, but there are always junior counselor positions and they wouldn't require as much responsibility (which is fine by me!).

My mom isn't too excited about me shipping out for two whole months, but I think she'll get over it. I promised her I'd write home on a regular basis, and if she really wants, she and Amy can come and visit on Parents' Day. They could make a road trip out of it if they really wanted! If I'm off at camp all summer though, I don't know if I'll get a chance to see Simon at all. Guess I should talk to him and see what his summer plans are.

Well, I have to get my homework done before dinner so I should take off. Just wanted to give a shout out to llama lover for her feedback - I always love getting mail! What are you doing for the summer?

Peace Out,

Sindy

1 Hey Sindy,
Summer camp was awesome for me, although, I've never been a counselor they seemed to have fun too! If I were you, I might start out with day camp so you could get the feeling of spending time with kids who are fractions of your size ( I mean, like 8 year olds and stuff, I'm not mean). Then if you really love it, you might want to do over-night camps.

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.  Hi there. I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it. Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)  You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them. When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.  If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger. Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.  Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me, Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
