August 21, 2007

I did it. I finally told Finn that I like him. And it did not go exactly as I'd hoped. After putting it off all summer, I had imagined it was going to be this amazing moment. Instead, as I said the words, "Finn, I really like you. I think we should go out sometime," a giant wave crashed into me and I ate a mouthful of sand.

Yeah, I thought it would be romantic or something to tell him while we were surfing. I totally didn't think about the potential hazards of that situation. So it was a little humiliating to say the least. By the time I managed to get my head above water again, my hair was a complete disaster and I was seriously choking on sea water.

After I dragged my butt onto dry land and got control of my breathing, Finn told me he's glad I took a chance and told him how I feel. Turns out he's been crushing on me all summer long as well, but just didn't know if I would be interested. How crazy is that?! Me? Not interested? Goes to show you that my flirting skills are not exactly what I thought they were.

Finn doesn't go to the same school as me, but he does live really close by. So we've decided to take things slow, see if we can make something of this. We're going to try to get out surfing together at least a couple times a week. School's bound to be hectic this year, but I think I owe it to my self to keep up my mad surfing skills. Not to brag or anything but I've gotten really good this summer!

Better jet - Finn and I are going to catch a movie tonight. I'm pretty nervous. It's going to be weird going as "not friends". I would love to go see The Nanny Diaries but I don't think Finn will be into that. Maybe we can check out Stardust. I still haven't seen it, but I heard it was really good - and not too girly!

Peace Out,
Sindy

Of course not! What kinds of people just go through their everyday lives shoving good kids into hard metal lockers? It's not right. I would never associate myself with a group like that. What kind of popular is that, shoving kids into lockers?

The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away. They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there. that's a good point.
