Sindy's Blog :: December 11, 2007

December 11, 2007

I'm definitely ready for Christmas break. I've been doing piles upon piles of homework for the past couple of weeks and it's kinda driving me crazy, so I can't wait for the last day of school, as well as the Winter Formal, which is this weekend!

I'm totally excited about the Winter Formal! Since Finn doesn't go to the same school as me, I called him up and asked him to be my date and he's pretty excited about it now too. I already spotted the coolest dress at the mall, which I'm gonna go buy with my mom. So, I have the date, I have the dress and I already have a pair of shoes in the closet - I'm all set! I'm hoping my mom won't embarrass me by taking tons of pictures of us, but I already know she will. But that's actually okay cuz I don't have many pics of Finn and me together.

Other things to look forward to during Christmas break - presents! I've been dropping major hints to my mom about this interactive video journal that I want! It's the Girl Tech Video Journal, and it comes with a digital camera and cool srapbooking functionality. If I get it, I'll be able to take lots of photos and videos of myself, my family, A.J., Finn and a bunch of other stuff, and then upload it all into the journal! Doesn't that sound cool?

Okay, gotta run. I'm heading to the mall with mom and Amy to buy my dress and do some Christmas shopping. I'm still trying to decide what to get everyone, especially Finn. It's our first Christmas together, so I'm not sure how much to spend on him. Should I try to impress him with something expensive, or go the thoughtful but cheap route? What do you guys think? and let me know!

Peace Out,
Sindy

    @rainbowpoptart  When I originally talked to my father, I was given the opportunity of good timing to bring it up. Luckily, there was no anger like I was partially expecting and I remained calm, which I definitely wasn't expecting. My fathers main concern was just worry and having seen other teens run away from something later getting themselves in trouble. He even brought up how he had run off at 18 and joined the Air Force, which I already knew. But, with this round, there is no perfect time to bring it up and he's always busy or we're having to do something so it's just very frustrating to find at least alright timing to bring it up, if that makes sense.

    My advice on this may not be the best because I haven't personally dealt with this yet, but... Parents, or guardians, get used to having their children around. You're [usually] with them for 18 years, which is a long time, so of course they - or in this case, your father - is going to feel like he's lost something very dear to him once you move out. To me it seems like he does truly understand that you're growing up. He just doesn't want it to happen. He knows that you're leaving soon - he just doesn't want it to be soon. Parents/guardians who are close to the children usually feel that way. If you're really so concerned, talk to him about it again, in a similar way you have done already. Or perhaps just a "Wow, my birthday is just around the corner". Once you do move out, visit him as frequently as you're able to and feel like. I'm sure he'll appreciate it, and it'll help you maintain a close relationship with him.

    Usually I wouldn't come here for advice, but I am really needing it. To sum it up, my birthday is in 21 days. Not only will I be leaving KW, but home as well. My mother has made it to where I have had plans to leave since I was around 11 or 12; so about 7 to 8 years. I won't get into everything, but we'll just say that my mother and I do not have a good relationship at all. My father on the other hand, I am very attached too and always scared of upsetting him. Things are not always very good between us at times, but we rarely fight. When we do, it is always bad nor ends well. So, having plans to move out are very scary to me and causes me plenty of anxiety that fights are going to break out when I have my help to get my belongings out.   For the record, I have talked to my father about leaving, why I want too, etc. But, more in the sense of that I want too, not that I am. Which, in a way, my parents understand I'm moving out as well as already pretty much know where I'm going without my mention. But, I don't think they, my father especially, understands how soon that is despite my saying of I want too when I'm 18 or when I say, "Soon." It doesn't help that my father told another that his "little girl is growing up" on him and that he is scared of the day I go because he will be alone. Which makes me feel guilty despite the fact I won't even be that far away. How should I talk to him once more and go about this or even when? I really want him to understand that I have thought everything through and that I will be in safe hands.
