September 18, 2007

I've decided that this year is going to be a year of change. I'm not just going to sit back and take things as they come. I'm going to actively make things happen. Last year I decided to focus on a few key things (take guitar lessons, surf more, etc.) and I am pretty impressed with how much I've accomplished. This year is going to be even better.

Usually I join one or two extra-curriculars just so it looks like I'm participating a bit. I'll do costumes for the school play or something. Sure, that's cool and everything but there's more to life than school plays and finishing my [/KWLINK 5449]history project[/KWLINK]. I really think I need to do stuff that means something to me. Does that make sense? I don't just want to help out with things because I have to; I want to do it because I want to.

First thing on my list? Organizing a proper recycling program at school. Sure, we have bins to put paper, but that's really it. I think we should start a program where we collect all our cans and bottles and once a month, cash them in for something cool for the school. Like new soccer jerseys or free snow cones (What? If Katie can do it, why can't I?).

I also want to start up a composting program. All around school we can have enclosed compost bins for fruit and vegetable waste. Think of how many banana peels and apple cores get thrown away every day at school! With the compost, we can start a school garden and maybe even donate some of the food we grow to local charities. I know it's not impossible to do, I just need to get off my butt and convince everyone else it's a good idea.

What do you think of my new-found energy and determination? Are any of you looking forward to doing something meaningful this year? I'd love to !

Peace Out,
Sindy

    This is not something that I am at all proud of... I hate myself more everytime I look or even think about it... My wrist My Father My Depression My tears My scissors ......... That's all that I can think about...... All that's going through my head.... I've been dealing with depression ever since I can remember it's not at all something I am proud of....Espically since I get bullied and harassed a lot by classmates and others .......and ever since I've moved and changed schools my life has became my own hell...... And the only way I thought I could control my hell was to escape it...... Just for a while at least ......So I took the green scissors from the dresser and I took my right wrist and left.........I had disappeared.....My heart poured out as well as the blood from my wrist......And after I was finished....I asked for a bandaid ......and I cried harder knowing that no one cared......Oh I don't know where they are.......No why ifs or buts.........And they are the ones who say I was the crazy one as my eyes pleaded with them to understand how hurt I truly was behind those eyes ....The black eyes that disappeared to find help in her pain....... But they know now what I've done at least she knows .....he'll find out when he comes home .......heart broken he'll be .....he's tried several times to make me laugh smile be happy.......But I know he knew we both knew this wasn't working......When he asks to see the scars I'll show him....Knowing painfully Knowing I'm breaking the man who loves me the most...heart.....I guess I wait ...untill he shows ......there's nothing left to do but wait.......

    So basicall, i am changing. I am going into middle school. I am worried if my best freind is becoming a jerk. He has harrased me for not hanging out with him every recess. He has been ungrateful everytime i did him a favor. He even went to do "magic" with his neighbor when i was over. He is also the type that could probably get in trouble the first day. Should i ditch him?
