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.

    lisp or not, i'm sure you're a nice person. i don't even know if you can get rid of this lisp- maybe practice speaking at home, try different movements with your lips or mouth, i don't know. don't let a lisp make you less confident, that doesn't change anything about you as a person. be yourself and be confident.

    Dear Dish it, Im already a grown teen but I don't think I am that easy to get along whem meeting new friends in school. And I think its because I lose my confidence cause I got some speech defect which called lisp. I often sometimes looks weird when theyre talking to me and It really affects me. What should I do? I have read and tried all the practice and therapy I read in the internet for a year but it doesnt make a change. I hope you help me

    you really need to have a proper chat with your parents. you're doing really well in school, and seem to have a good set of friends, and tell them that you should be able to go out, i mean you've done nothing wrong and surely should be allowed a little freedom in return?
