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.

If you need to talk and explain to me with more info you can, I'm here. :)    ^^This. You're not stupid either. Everybody makes mistakes and messes things up.

    Don't make your mom get irritated or she might start abusing you too. Talk to a counselor at school or something and figure out a way, like living with a relative or something. A counsellor is a good idea but talking to your mom is more important. She's your guardian. Don't worry about irritating her, tell her how you feel. Communication is important and the fear of getting abused should never ever get in between your relationship unless it's a previous factor in that relationship (not one with someone else). You have a right to tell her how you feel and have a discussion with her about it. I'm sure you can come to some sort of understanding. And if not, then maybe talk to someone outside the family. But don't go behind her back and talk to someone else about it unless it's 100% necessary for your family. She needs to know how you feel.

    I know it must feel awful. But you have to remember that your parents still love you, they just don't have time to show it sometimes. Autism requires a lot of work, attention, and support. Unfortunately that's a sacrifice you make for family. Sometimes you have to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. They're doing this for the family.
