Sindy's Blog - February 15, 2007

February 15, 2007

I hope by now you have all recovered from your chocolate hangovers. Mine lasted all through first period - but I guess that's what happens when you scarf down a whole box of truffles to yourself! I couldn't help it... they tasted soooo good.

My girls' night movie-fest went really well. It was just me, Amy, my mom, a couple girls from school and my Aunt Jilly (who's actually my mom's best friend). She and Mom have been friends since, like, second grade, and she's never gotten married. This year she was flying solo like the rest of us so mom invited her over. We rented a ton of movies, made hot chocolate, had ice cream sundaes and of course, popped bowl after bowl of popcorn!

Mom and I had planned the perfect movie line-up for our girls' Valentine's bash. We figured we'd start things out slow and then work our way up to the ultimate, sappy, tear-inducing flick. To ease us into a romantic mood we picked The Little Mermaid. There are tons of great songs to sing along to, there's a really cute prince and it has a very, happy ending. I don't think I will ever get tired of that one. Next up was my pick - The Notebook! I know it's cheesy and really sappy but it gets me every time. In fact, it got every one of us last night. There was not a dry eye in the living room by the time the credits rolled.

The last movie we watched was Dirty Dancing - picked by my mom and Aunt Jilly. Apparently they've watched it like 20 times together. I'd never seen it but I'm glad we left it for last because it was nice to end the night on a teary, but happy ending. If we had of watched The Notebook last, I think I would've had dreams all night about getting old but instead I dreamt that I joined a touring dance show and fell madly in love with my dance partner who looked remarkably good in a pair of tights. I also dreamt that I had giant white angel wings and could fly. I'm not sure what that was about!

So how did your Valentine's go? How many of you had hot dates? Who stayed home and pigged out on chocolate by themselves? I'd what you got up to!

Peace Out,

Sindy

    Does Valentine's Day Depress You?

    • Yeah, I hate Valentine's Day.
    • No. I love celebrating with my BF/GF.
    • Not really. I don't care if I don't have a BF/GF.
    • No. I always plan a fun night with my friends!

    I hope you don't mind that I moved this to friends, but I thought it'd be more fitting since your question seems mainly friendship based. :) Do you mind being younger than your classmates? Do you feel it inhibits your school experience? I think you should do what feels best to you, whether that be staying behind because friendship has a big impact, or continuing ahead if you prioritize academic growth. Only you know what's right for you. :p If it's any help, I left high school early and went to college. I was already used to being the youngest in my class so it wasn't a huge jump socially, and I found a lot of friends of all ages. :D With that being said, I do still miss being with people my age but it's too late to go back and I wouldn't trade my experience for the world.

    I'm 13 and will be going on to 9th grade. I skipped kindergarted  :p and 5th grade. So I'm a lot younger then most of my classmates will be. I'm thinking of repeating 8th grade so I will be more of the same age as the other people in my class. But I'm not sure if I should because I got a B+ or A- average in 8th grade. I need some advice on this. Sorry if this is the wrong section for this I just thought general was the right place. Thanks!  :D

    I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)
