Sindy's Blog - November 30, 2006

November 30, 2006

Wow - this decorating project has turned into a much bigger project than I thought! I'm not saying I'm backing out or stopping or anything... it's just a lot more work than I was hoping for. For instance, I didn't think that I would be camped out on the couch in the living room for weeks waiting for the paint to dry.

How was I supposed to know that winter was a bad time to attempt an interior design project? Apparently it's a lot tougher to get paint to dry when it's cold outside... who knew? And I had to choose a color that took a million coats before it looks decent. I've just always wanted a red room. I'm going with a real '80s theme, so I've got one bright red wall, the rest are white and then black trim.

Thanks to my on-again-off-again sewing hobby I've managed to sew some pretty cool black and white checked curtains. I'm also making a bunch of throw pillows with the same material and I'm trimming them with red vinyl. They've also been a lot more work than I thought they'd be but they look so awesome!

I got the material at this discount fabric store so it was crazy cheap, the paint was left over from the prop room at school, so I still have a bunch of money from the budget my mom set for me. I'm thinking I'd like to get some sort of rug and maybe a comfy lounge chair for the corner of my room. I'll probably also grab a bunch of those super cheap frames from Ikea and make a collage of cool pictures of my friends and stuff on one wall.

It's been a fun project - I just wish it wasn't taking so long. With my luck it'll be Christmas before I'm finished. Oh that reminds me, I still have to start my Christmas shopping. I wonder what I'm going to get everyone... I hate buying for my family, they're just so difficult to think of things for. What are your families like - to buy for?

if you have any good gift giving ideas this year!

Peace Out,

Sindy

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
