Sindy is working at a surf board rental shop this summer!

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

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried

    She isn't jealous she is just dissappointed that you chose to get lessons when she did to get better . She had to get better to catch up to you so you can enjoyher as your best friend. Then you went ahead and got lessons as if you needed them. She is just upset that you showed off a talent that she didn't have. And she tried to get better to impress you but you got better as well. Which kept her at the stage she will always be at my best friend sings way betyer than me but I try.

    It may be hard but break it down to them we aren't friends but we can be associates. It may leave them a bit dissappointed but tell them we aren't in the same category to be as close as friends.
