Sindy is getting ready to work as a camp counselor this summer. Find out more about her vacation plans in her free online teen blog.

June 22, 2006

Hey everyone! So, school is finally over and done with - phew! These last couple of weeks have been really stressful, but I gotta thank you all for your words of advice. Without them, I think I would have gone completely crazy!

My mom is super happy because I came home with practically straight A's. I ended up getting a B- in art, but I figure that's such a subjective thing... everyone's idea of what's cool and what's not changes on a daily basis so if I can manage to get a B-, that's good enough for me. And it was good enough for my mom too - she's driving me to camp this weekend!

I have to get there a week or so earlier than all the campers to I can meet the rest of the staff and learn all the things I need to learn about my job. I think I'll be kind of moving around from activity to activity so I'll get to try out lots of fun stuff. The kids I'm going to be working with are seven and eight years old, so fingers crossed I can handle it! I figure a lifetime of having Amy around and all my babysitting experience should have prepared me.

I still have a lot of running around to do before I ship out this weekend. I need to buy a new bathing suit, put together a first aid kit, stock up on books and magazines and make sure I have plenty of writing paper on hand. My mom's made me promise I write home at least once a week! Anyways, I should tackle some of these errands. I will be sure to update you guys as soon as I arrive. Hope your summer has started out well!

1Hey Sindy,
Ideas about your finals - make studying fun, try to make it into a game or you could have your siblings or parents test you for something you want. (Ex. If you get an answer right, you get a dime - you could be an A+ student and rich.) Don't forget to bring your cell phone, paper, pen/pencil, stamps, envelopes and pics of you friends and family to camp.
Have fun,
Maria

1Dear Sindy,
Since you are going to summer camp, you are definitely going to need lots and lots of sunscreen, ponytail holders and many different kinds of shoes for different activities. Have fun at summer camp!

Peace Out,

The reason is because I have a guy who really likes me, and we liked each other back in the 5th grade, and he's even got me presents and everything, but now I'm starting to doubt whether I still like him or not. And he is a great guy; he's silly, funny, kind- but I just don't know if he's the right guy for me. Plus there's a friend of mine who I know likes me as more than a friend, and he's a great guy, too. I really need advise!! Oh sweetheart, your situation is so, so very far from being complicated. In fact, it's actually, entirely simple. But I'm here to help you see that, because you can't see it yourself quite yet. Brace yourself, you may never hear such advice in your life ever again. Or you might, I can't predict the future. You're in sixth grade, you said. Assuming you live in the United states and weren't held back, you're probably 12, maybe 11. The problem is, the human brain isn't fully developed until a person hits the age of about 25. This means, without debate, that your brain unable to fully grasp what being in a relationship actually entails, what it means, what the consequences are, and so forth. You can't even fathom it, my dear. I couldn't at your age; no one can. You've just begun to hit puberty at this point in your very young, completely normal life. Certain hormones are now being developed by your body that, up until puberty began, your body did not produce. Let me explain, in simple terms, what this means: these new hormones are giving you fuzzy feelings for boys, but these feelings are not what people with fully developed brains call "love." Love means being self sacrificing, compromising, giving and taking, communicating clearly and honestly, and so much more. What you're feeling is a part of love-romance-but it's not all there is to love. It's actually just a few simple chemicals being released in your brain: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and few others. Your brain releases those chemicals when, say, you see a boy you like, and those chemicals make you feel all fuzzy inside. In fact, (brace yourself,) there's nothing inherently special about the boys you like, or the boys that like you; in fact, they're also, entirely normal, and aside from a few minor differences in character, completely like most other boys their age. Had you been born in another town, gone to another school, you would have gotten the same fuzzy feeling about whatever boy you thought you liked at that school. You see? I'm not saying this to make you feel insignificant, but perhaps the insight will make moving easier for you. The next place your militant parents settle down in will also have a middle school, with a bunch of normal 11-14 year old boys and girls, all doing the exact same things the kids at your school do right now. Does that put things in perspective for you? The world is a very, very big place, and it's home to billions upon billions of people. Your situation is far from being a needle in a hay stack; it's more like a blade of grass, in a vast field of foliage. The feelings you're feeling aren't uncommon or complicated, they just feel that way to you. (Now, really brace yourself, because this is going to get uncomfortable.) We, as people, tend to think that we're special. Each one of us a unique snowflake, drifting about in big blue sky, that exists solely to show the world how special we are. The problem is, the other seven billions snowflakes (people) think exactly like we do, and in this way, we are all the same. We think our problems are new problems that no one has ever dealt with before, and no one else could possibly understand the pain and suffering we're going through. We all think this way, by nature; but it's simply naive. Heartache and suffering have existed since people existed, and possibly before then. Your situation may not be ideal to you, but once you come to terms with the fact that life isn't ideal for anyone, you might actually feel comfort. The easiest way to cope with our many problems, is to accept them for what they are: a part of the human experience. Natural, normal, repeating generation after generation without end. Again, these are concepts that require some deep thought, and you might not fully grasp them quite yet. But remember them. With time, as you grow, think about them more, and you will find peace with your life. And remember this: although you're stuck (for now) on a giant rock hurling around the sun at an incredible speed, you're not alone. With billions of other people stuck here with you, you'll never be without friends.

    I personally think that when you ARE ready then go for it! As long as the person you like isn't a jerk to anyone or you go for it! Just don't get too serious. It's middle school. Good luck!
