Sindy's Blog - August 3, 2006

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.

    Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

    Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!

    You go out and you find someone who you can be you with. It's not a hard question to find the answer too.
