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

To change your eye color, you will need to either wear contacts during the day to appear that you have different colored eyes than you truly have, or medically having a doctor perform surgical iris correction.

I hope you texted back if you felt that it would be the right thing to do for yourself. I did not have a good childhood due to my birthmother and father. But, in recent time, I have come to enjoy talking to my birthfather and completely cannot stand my birthmother or her new husband anymore. I plan to actually meet him for the first time in 16 years if I can join my fiancé's family vacation.  Point of the matter, do what you feel is right. If you want to talk to him; talk to him. If you don't, don't reply if you don't feel comfortable too. It is purely your choice who you allow in your life, even when it comes down to blood and family.

It isn't pathetic in the slightest to seek help. I don't think it is right for your mother and siblings to completely disown you over your choice of living arrangements. If they have pushed you away, remember that it is not your fault and it is purely theirs. You made a choice that you felt would benefit you, and judging from their behavior, it was a good choice. As for your father, I don't fight with my own very much, but when I do it tends to be pretty bad. My mother on the other hand, I fight with constantly so I understand where you're coming from. You shouldn't have to do anything. From the sound of it, it seems more like a personal issue going on with himself, especially a sense of shame or regret with his previous exes so he uses you as an outlet because you're the closest thing he has.  I say find an outlet, a healthy one. Sometimes it is best to let them ramble on until they wear themselves out, but remember that self-defense and "talking back" is not always a bad thing just because they are your guardian. It is important to take a stand for yourself. Be respectful, don't sink to their level.

I think it is very important to find a healthy outlet and someone to talk to whether it's a doctor, friend, family member, ect. You can even find a journal to write in, if it will help you. I promise you, it isn't worth it to let families opinions and views affect you. I let the same thing happen to me and I still struggle over things that I wish I didn't.

Personally, given your age, the idea of a crush is a bit cute, but you're a little young for anything serious. I would recommend waiting until you truly know what you're doing. (And, believe me, you may not see it now, but you will when you're older.) But, if you really do want to find out, you need to remember that boys and girls both feel things. Boys aren't aliens, they aren't emotionless, and they aren't always just  dumbieheads.  You'll find it funny later on in life from how nervous you had gotten over a crush So honestly, just be straight forward. If you need a topic starter to bring it up, joke about old rumors that used to spread about you both.
