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

    I feel like that too! I know where you're coming from, but believe me, I've moved on. Those people? Bleh. Not worth my time, and certainly don't deserve me.  You described me exactly: good with people and friends, but don't have a best friend at all, and others really don't care whether I'm lonely or sad. Well, it might sound crazy, but guess what? I've found a friend in me instead of others. I've learned to accept that you can't please everyone, and that some of the fish in the sea aren't worth wasting your time on. So I've become independent, to learn to depend on myself more than to rely on others. Trust me, it works, and I think it'll work for you. But if you really need a friend, me and @alienincognito are here to talk to you if you need us! @alienincognito: LOL! DUDE! That's HOW I THINK! Whenever one of my friends talks behind my back or backstabs me, I'm like, "Ah, whatever, 'screw em, I'll let Karma take over! I ain't letting those negative peeps ruin my day." Maybe you, me, and hasti10 could start a group where we can talk to each other!  :) :D 8)

    I've always felt the same way. My one best friend gossiped behind my back, used me, all that girl stuff. She took me for advantage and we had a bunch of fights because of her finding a new friend and completely acting as if I didn't exist, and I told her to give me at least some attention every once in a while if she can't even continue to talk to me daily. And.. I lost her. Well, she lost me. We both lost each other. But then I realized.. it's the people that you least expect to be nice to you you'll find kindness in. Why? Based on personal experience, and I'll tell you the story: For my gym class, me and my peers were supposed to make a group for a dance. This was when my best friend had found a new friend already, and the time at which we had a few fights because of that. Of course, I relied on my best friend to count me in her dance group. At lunchtime, I sat together with my best friend, and we ate our lunches in silence. All of a sudden, I brought up the dance groups and asked her straightforwardly: "Can I join your group?" No reply. "Kelly, can I join your group?" No reply. "I mean, since our class is uneven, I found it fair that there'd be a group of five, you know?" None at all. Kelly ignored me straight off the bat, leaving me speechless. My mind raced with thoughts, and I thought, maybe it's not worth having Kelly as a friend. A few days later, we were playing Dodgeball for gym. I was on Kelly's team, and overheard her talking with her new friends about who to pick for the dance group. One of her friends mentioned me, and Kelly said: "Oh no, we shouldn't pick her because _____ (I don't know what she said then)." I was shocked, but was anticipating it, so when the time came to choose groups, I saw my friend, Luke, ask two girls, Cher and Bridgette, to join their group. Surprisingly, Cher and Bridgette actually accepted him, and so I thought, "Wow, if they accepted Luke, they might accept me aswell!" and so built up the courage to ask them if I could join. Even though Cher and Bridgette were mean to me sometimes, I knew that I had to risk it and see what'd happen. Afterall, rejection is just another opportunity to find a better group. Little did I know, it'd be the best choice of my life. They were so happy, and even thanked me for joining them! I was speechless once more; I never knew that the peers that I thought I would never be friends with would actually be my friends!  So yeah, that's what I learnt, and I never regretted learning that fact. Ever since then, though, I've learnt not to trust people as much as I used to anymore. I learnt that independency is what works for me, what I was meant for in terms of socializing or working. But, other things may work for you. If you still want a friend, you can be independent and wait for the right person. However, if you still want a real friend, you can wait, but still mingle (hang out) with other people! I I'm not going to make fun of you because I know how you've felt, just as I stated in my past problem before. But you can move on from those friends, they're not worth your time and certainly don't deserve you as a friend. Trust me, if it's meant to be, you'll definitely find a true friend. But if it's not, you may become like me, finding happiness in my own way. I want to remind you though-- you don't need someone to stay happy, or keep you company. This may sound silly, but you can even have your own invisible friends! I've had one, but that's very rarely for me. It's not silly though if you see the general idea; usually these friends are made from different dimensions of your personality or just because of will. There's a lot more fish in the sea, though, so I'm sure you'll find a true friend that's meant for you  :) Take care, and I hope you'll find a true friend soon!
