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!

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumours spread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.

    I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

    I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.
