September 4, 2007

The first day back to school is always strange. You're bummed that the summer is over and that you're back to the grind, but you're excited to see all your friends and wear your cute new clothes. This year, I think I'm more excited than not.

I know it's weird to be excited about homework, quizzes and school runs, but I'm kind of ready for a bit more structure. For the whole summer I slept in every day and went surfing. Even work didn't really feel like work. Not that I didn't enjoy the laziness of the summer, I'm just ready to be a bit more productive.

I'm sure in a couple weeks I'll be dreaming of my next vacation, but for now I'm content to be back to school. This past week I got to hang out with Finn a lot so I'm not going through withdrawl just yet. We're going to get together tomorrow after school for a quick surf session so we can catch up and tell each other about our first days back.

It's weird cuz I feel like I've known Finn forever, but I actually don't know a lot about him. Like, I've never met any of his friends. I have no idea what his average day is like. We still haven't met each others families either. I guess if we're able to make a go of things, I'll learn all these things eventually. I guess I'm just a bit nosy sometimes. I want to know everything about Finn and don't want to wait!

I should probably stop being so impatient and start enjoying my last few days of freedom. No homework yet, but you know there's going to be a lot of it just around the corner! How was your first day back to school?

Peace Out,
Sindy

    Back-to-School - Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?

    • Thumbs up - I love going back to school.
    • Thumbs down - I wish summer was an extra six months.
    • I'm not too bummed.
    • I'm homeschooled so it doesn't really make a difference.

    I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

    I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.

    Hey! Yeah, I'm also one of those girls who doesn't wear makeup either... maybe on a rare occasion? Or if pestered into it.  I definitely understand where you're coming from with this. My mom doesn't exactly try to get me to wear it, but is she did, I wouldn't be to happy out this either. Don't feel bad. You're beautiful no matter what; makeup doesn't  define you -unless, of course you let it...  She probably wants you to feel "more grown up,"  or thinks it's nice for a "young lady," or that'll "boost your confidence." I don't know, there could be plenty of reasons.  If you feel uncomfortable the best thing to do would be to talk to her about it. Respectfully tell how you really feel and make sure she's listening.
