Sindy is working at a sleep-away camp this summer. Find out how she's liking her new job.

July 6, 2006

Well, I arrived safe and sound at camp last week and so far it's been a blast. It was a bit overwhelming for the first few days, getting to know everyone and sleeping in a strange bed - but now it feels like I've been here forever. I've made some great friends and all the kids I'm working with are so much fun!

When I first got here I had to go through an orientation where I learned about the different activities I would be teaching this summer. It looks like I'll mostly be focusing on arts and crafts and nature hikes, which is totally cool with me. Basically I'm getting paid to play and explore all summer - I can't think of a better summer job! I was worried that the kids were going to be complete brats, but my group has been really well-behaved. I have five kids that I'm in charge of at a time, so it's not too bad at all.

On top of my activity stations, I also have to help out in the kitchen once a week and join in on campfire sing-alongs at least one night a week. All the counselors (including me!) get one evening off a week and we can go watch movies in the main hall or spend some quiet time in our cabins or do pretty much anything else we'd like. It's pretty cool.

I honestly didn't think I was going to have this much fun. I knew it would be better than rollerskating around, delivering hamburgers to demanding people, but I wasn't expecting to get this into it. I've been hanging out a lot with this girl who's in the same cabin as me. Her name is Katie and she's from Florida. She's never been away from home for this long either so we've been helping each other through our homesickness. She's also into the drama scene at her school, so we've had a lot to talk about.

So far, there has been no real potential for a summer romance, but I'm pretty content with just doing my job and making new friends. Boys certainly aren't the most important thing in life... But I wouldn't be completely opposed to at least meeting some cute ones at some point! Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Hope you all are having a great summer so far. what you've been up to!

1Hi Sindy,
I hope you have a great time at camp.

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
