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

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    CoolerThanMyself
    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)

    Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

    He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
