August 31, 2006

Camp is officially winding down and I'll be headed back to California on Sunday. I can't believe how fast this summer has flown by. It really feels like it was just last week that I was freaking out about what I was going to pack and how I was going to battle bugs for eight weeks straight!

I honestly never imagined I was going to have this much fun. It's the first time I've really been away from home for this long (I've gone on short trips to visit Simon but I've never gone anywhere by myself where I didn't know anyone). I've met so many great friends who I'm looking forward to keeping in touch with through email and messenger and stuff. I think I might even plan to come back here next summer.

I know you guys are all probably wondering what my status with Connor is... Well, we both realize that while we like each other a lot, we live really far away from one another and it would just be too stressful to try and make anything really stick. But we are totally going to stay friends and he might even come out to California at some point. I'd love to go snowboarding this winter too, so maybe I can convince my mom to take a trip over to Colorado. (And if that doesn't work, I can always turn to my dad...).

Once I get home I'm only going to have a week to get all my stuff together before heading back to school! I still have to do some back-to-school clothes shopping and get all my school supplies. Hopefully my mom's already started to pick some of that stuff up for me! I honestly am so out of the loop about what the new things for fall are. I guess I could check out Kidzworld's back-to-school fashion guide.

What's on your back-to-school wish-list? What do you think the hottest trend is this season? I need all the help I can get.

Peace Out,
Sindy

    Your parents clearly hate you... Just kidding but maybe its time to talk to them and see if they understand where you are coming from.

    Okay, since I'm a girl and have helped many of my guy friends with this (even though I think they r too young for this but meh whatever), I can give you some advice.  1) Don't be mean or nice. You have to be yourself. Don't be nasty to her to get her to like you (it won't work), nor should you be Mr Nice Guy. Don't be there to carry her bag for her just yet.  2) If you want her attention, be creative. Writing a song is a good idea, but don't dedicate it to her. Just pretend you're aiming it at the general female population of your class. You can tell her that it's for her later, when she's into you. 3) Find out what she likes. Does she play instruments? Does she do sports? Does she fangirl over stuff? Does she play video games? Find out and DISCREETLY get her to know that you like it too, if you do of course. This is what worked for one of my friends: 1) Stay low until the perfect moment. If she falls over, come over and help her up, smile at her and blow her away with your charms, and then proceed to say hi and ask for her name as if you don't know her. It is creepy when a random guy knows your name and says it to you.... it just is idk. Walk away without looking back. This will make her curious for this stranger who helped her up. Do this for whatever situation. BUT JUST ONCE. DO NOT REPEAT. 2) If this happens again (she falls over etc), be sure to be really obvious that you're not going to help her up. Walk by without sparing a single glance. She will be reminded of you and wonder why didn't you help her. This is good - you want her to think of you. 3) Do something sweet for her. For example, if she likes a particular drink or cheap snack, buy it for her and walk up to her. Give it to her, but say something like "Hey _________! Here you go. I accidentally bought the wrong flavour and didn't want to throw it away. Don't worry - I didn't open it. Do you want it?" She should say yes, and ask for your name to say thank you. That's when you tell her. 4) Start to wave to her in the hallways and say hi sometimes. Don't do this too much though. Sometimes, if she waves first, ignore her. This should make her want your attention more. 5) Do something sweet again (like the song), but aim it not directly towards her (like I already said before - aim it towards girls in general). If you want some more, tell me! I hope this helped, but it might not - depends on what kind of girl she is.
