June 28, 2007

Looks like Simon isn't the only one with a super cool job this summer... I got a part-time gig at this surfboard rental place! Basically all I have to do is take people's money and point them to a pile of surf boards we have. I only work Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, which is a perfect amount of time to make a bit of cash. The dude who owns the place says that most business is in the morning and I can just chill and read magazines or books for the rest of the day and wait for everyone to return their boards.

I know there's a potential for being really bored during the days if I don't plan to have something to do, but the idea of talking to hot surfers all summer long is so worth it! And I can just start reading more. I've been meaning to peel myself away from the TV and dig into all those books I hear about on Kidzworld - so this is a perfect excuse.

Of course now I'm going to have to go shopping for a bunch of work clothes (ie. cute bathing suits, shorts, tank tops and flip flops). I wonder if I can talk my mom into lending me money for all that. It's an investment really. If I was working at an office all summer I would need to buy dress clothes, so this is really no different.

I don't start my job until after Independence Day, which is totally cool with me. Amy and I are headed over to Dad's for a July 4th BBQ with a bunch of his work people and their families. It's usually a good time - but it was a lot more fun when Mom and Dad were actually still together.

What are you all doing for the Fourth of July? Big plans with the fam or will it just be a low-key day? and let me know what you get up to and I'll post up your stories!

Peace Out,
Sindy

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
