Sindy's Blog - October 2, 2007

October 2, 2007

I bet a lot of you thought I wouldn't follow through with any of the plans I made in my last blog. I haven't been quite as ambitious as I would have liked, but I did start working on my proposal to present to the principal.

My mom's been helping me a bit, just making suggestions on what adults might like to hear. Like, even though we'd be helping the environment, my mom says that the school board is more likely to agree to my project if it will help them save money. I figure that over the course of a month, we'd collect about 20,000 bottles and cans. At five cents a bottle, we'd make like $1,000 a month!

After crunching those numbers, I can't imagine why we haven't been recycling all along. Think of all school dances, uniforms and field trips we could have paid for! Do your schools have recycling programs? Are you involved at all?

Since I've been spending so much time on this proposal, I haven't really had a chance to get down to the beach with Finn. He's been calling to invite me out surfing, but I just really want to get this done. I think I'll take an afternoon off though - Finn probably won't just keep waiting around for me.

Okay. If I want to go surfing and present this proposal this week, I better get to work! Have a great long weekend!

Peace Out,
Sindy

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
