December 14, 2006

I am finally back in my own room! And, the miraculous part is that is doesn't smell like a paint factory anymore. I can go to sleep, in my own bed, without the fear of being poisoned by noxious fumes. Now that's what I call a good holiday present!

So I managed to finish up all the little extras for my room. I swear, it looks like a completely different place! I had a few friends over after school yesterday to check it out and everyone was sooo jealous - especially Ashley from my Home Ec class. She thinks she's, like, the best sewer in our class just because her mom makes quilts or something, so she was really bent out of shape when she found out I'd sewn my curtains and made all those pillows and stuff. Is it wrong that I couldn't help rubbing it in a little?

Now that my room is complete, I am faced with the daunting task of Christmas shopping! I have no idea what to get everyone. Amy should be easy to buy for cuz all she's been talking about for the past few months is the new Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses. So, I'll just get her the DVD and the dancing doll and she'll be the happiest kid on the block. My mom and dad are a different story. They always complain about the gifts I get them.

I know they don't mean to be so ungrateful but they just always get those, "I have no idea why you would buy me something like this" looks on their faces. It's not like I buy bad gifts - they're just really hard to please. Like last year I got my mom these super cute pajamas from American Eagle, you know, so she would look a little bit cooler - and she went on this rant about how she wasn't a teenager anymore and she wasn't about to start dressing like one again. They were pajama pants and a tank top - hardly scandalous - but she ended up returning them!

For my dad, I burnt him a bunch of mixed CDs of his favorite bands and put them in this cool CD case. Think he appreciated them? No! He whined about how he'd rather just listen to records. I think he forgets that the only people who listen to records are like, grandparents. And last time I checked, he didn't have any grandkids yet.

I don't know. Maybe I'll just get them gift certificates or something. I'd buy them DVDs but I'm sure they'd just complain that they prefer VHS. Seriously. What are you guys getting your 'rents? Are they hard to buy for too? if you have some!

Peace Out,

Sindy

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

PerksBeingABookworm
Dear Dish-It:  I recently became friends with an upperclassman guy, Tom*, from my high school. We started hanging out about a month or so ago. To be honest, I thought the relationship was platonic: we've never flirted although we've bantered, I don't use flirty emojis with him and although I spend a lot of time with him, he has always said how much I remind him of my brother (who is the same age as me), and he's never stolen glances at me or given me the impression that he was into me that way. I rationalized that he saw me as a little sister the same way as I viewed him as an older brother, since he constantly made references to my brother and never attempted to flirt nor gave off any of the typical visual signals of attraction. I also don't see myself as someone who'd be attractive or crush-worthy from the perspective of a high school junior, since I'm a freshman in high school and definitely not modelesque, and we pretty much stuck to group outings. So when he asked me out 2 weeks ago, needless to say it came as a surprise. We decided to remain friends, but I'm having trouble establishing boundaries, especially since my sister informed me that one of his friends told her that Tom "wasn't going to give up on me" and that Tom was going to adhere to the "Three Strikes Rule": apparently, he can wait and ask me out 2 more times before giving up on pursuing me.  Dish-It, how do I remain friends with this guy without this becoming awkward? What do I do? Just this past weekend he wanted to s**pe call me and kept s.n.a.p.ch*tting me. I literally feigned accidentally sleeping in yesterday to avoid meeting up with him (he invited my siblings and I to go play tennis at our high school), and I haven't talked to him since Saturday (we do track together so it was kind of unavoidable). I need space, and I want to remain friends, but he's really making me feel uncomfortable.  Thanks, -Perks. P.S.: This is the second junior who has asked me out this year (and the second guy I've rejected). Maybe I'm just really naive and oblivious, but I genuinely don't see myself as attractive to guys...how do I stop accidentally leading them on? Because I'm not trying to, really-I'm not flirty or anything. I have no idea why they like me, I don't think I'm being overly nice and I'm not answering texts right away or anything. This guy didn't get my phone information from me, he got it from another person on our coed sports team and he originally texted me 2 months ago to tell me that he was worried about my brother so I didn't think he was making a move on me. *Names have been changed for privacy reasons. (Also: the chat filter keeps unnecessarily censoring my writing).

Maybe find a few nerds like me... who knows. My dad told me people would make fun of me, but i don't care.... You will face a little making fun of, but as long as you can get past that and ignore others, I think you'll be just fine. If you're already aware of any others like you throughout the school, maybe you should look into making a group! Slip them a note or talk to them yourself, see if they're interested. Good luck!
