Sindy's Blog - August 21, 2007

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

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.

     Loosing a parent is hard, your dad knows that and I'm sure that he misses your mom just as much as you do. Whether you explain to him how you are feeling or not, you should know that your Dad will always love you and admitting to him how you feel isn't going to change that. Although it is completely understandable how you feel, you need to let your dad move one eventually. It's not fair to him if he has to spend the rest of his life alone. Even though you might not see it, its a good thin that your dad is finally feeling comfortable enough to date. It doesn't mean that he is letting go of your mom or that he will forget about her, it means that he is moving on with his life. You lost your mother and he lost the love of his life. Dating other people will probably start off being just as hard for him as it is for you. My advice is that you talk to your dad. Let him know how you feel in the most gentle and understanding way that you can. Don't flat out say that you don't want him dating anyone, tell him that you still miss your mom and its hard to see him with other people. Let me know how it goes, good luck. :)
