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,

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!

1Hi Sindy,
I read your blog and I just wanna say I hope you have fun at camp. So peace out to you too!

Peace Out,

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

    Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

    This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
