August 3, 2006

After the week from hell at camp (I got attacked by Poison Ivy and a skunk!) my luck has definitely been looking up. The weather's been gorgeous, I've managed to get a pretty impressive tan (don't worry, I've been lathering up with sunscreen) and I've met a really cute boy!

Yeah, I know. I said I was going to just do my own thing and not worry too much about boys this summer, but can I help it if they pursue me? I couldn't very well turn down a moonlit walk along the lake with a hottie like Connor. He's another junior counselor, who I didn't really know that well until a few weeks ago when we were paired together to lead a day-long nature hike with a bunch of the older kids. We all hiked to this open meadow where we set up a big picnic and played games for the afternoon.

That day we really got to know each other - he's a sophomore in Colorado who's on the track team and loves fishing and the outdoors. Being from California, I'm more of a beach kid and don't usually bond with the outdoorsy types - but then again, I didn't think I would ever be working at a summer camp either. Connor is so chill and we found out that we love all the same movies (we're both super stoked to see the new Will Ferrell movie, Talladega Nights) and he's been dying to come surfing in Cali, so we're going to see if we can meet up after camp is over.

I'm not going to get too caught up in this boy though. He's a lot of fun to hang out with but once camp is over we'll be going home to our separate states and the long distance thing never works. But that doesn't mean I can't have fun while I'm here, right? There are still four weeks of summer left...

What have you guys been up to so far this summer? Any summer romances? Family vacations? First jobs? Write me and let me know. I love guys!

Peace Out,
Sindy

    Can Long Distance Work?

    • Yeah, I've had a long distance relationship that worked.
    • No, they usually don't work.
    • Long distance relationships are way too much effort!
    • I guess it depends on the situation.

    Maybe they're trying a little too hard to impress you. Maybe they're desperate for a friend and don't want to lose you so they're trying to please you. Just calmly ask them if they could stop trying to be exactly like you and instead be themselves, because people like to be friends who are themselves. Good luck! -HannahG

    Hey, just move on. If she/he can't see what a great person you are, then they don't deserve you. You're an amazing person and if they believe differently, then they don't have a clue about what they're missing. -HannahG

    Look, I know that it's bad what she did. It's wrong. But there's nothing you can do about that. Let her live her own life, the best thing to do is just leave it alone. If she wants to take care of a child, she'll deal with the consequences. She makes her own decisions, so if that's what she wants then you shouldn't interfere with it. Forget her. Just don't make the same mistake. I know some girls out there believe that their boyfriend totally loves them, and if they have ########### they'll love their girl even more. That's not always the truth. They always say it's not gonna be me, I'm not gonna make the same mistake, my boyfriend loves me no matter what, and they turn out wrong. That's the end of my rant. Just leave her alone, you'll be better off. -HannahG
