Quoi de neuf?

Bonjour, tous ceux qui lisent ce blog! C'est Sandrine, et je ne veux pas fiare mes devoirs! (Mais c'est typique...)

Because I don't want to do my homework, I thought I'd talking about things that are NEW. I'll begin with important new things first, such as clothes. My mom took my sister and me back-to-school shopping, which seriously wasn't that great since we had to be with HER. Mère is such a nag; it's almost ridiculous. She has this uncanny way of critiquing and criticizing everything, including how certain clothes look on us. It's not like I actually care if she critiques Sabine, but it really bothers me when she decides to nag on me. I'll leave it at that. It's not worth repeating what that awful woman actually says. 

I did, however, get a dress, boots, and sunglasses out of her! I love animal print, so I knew I had to get this dress as soon as I saw it. I also needed new boots for school, so I thought that these simple, almost-black-but-more-of-a-charcoal-gray boots would do the trick. I can wear them with so much.

I also needed sunglasses, so I chose these. They are stylish, yet they were on sale, so it was worth it. Now, I don't have to worry about getting wrinkles similar to my mom's when I go out in the sunshine. (Ha, that's there ever sunshine in Lille?!?!)

Since Sabine is extraordinarily picky, Mère is going to order some things online for her. How annoying. The fact that Sabine refuted everything our mom offered to buy her was just obnoxious! This made Mère's already terrible mood even worse which therefore provoked the incessant nagging. 

Now, here's another thing that is new and unusual. My brother actually had a normal conversation with me. It's been about four years, so it was clearly time for him to grow up and start acting like a normal person again. Here's the twist, though- after this normal conversation, he told me to stop provoking Mère and merely walk away when she gets upset. This probably made things worse with my brother, but I said that unlike him, I wasn't going to just sit around and act passive just to please Mère. If that woman says something that upsets me, I am certainly going to stand up for myself! If Sabine and I agree on anything, it's that our brother tries to hard to be the "perfect child". It's so annoying, especially since he's technically an adult (he's 18)...

Ugh, I have to go and try to coerce Sabine into doing my homework for me. I have half a day of that terrible thing called school tomorrow, and I'm hoping I can survive it.

I think it's important that we stand up for ourselves. Keep up the good work.

Love, love, love the new outfit! I also really want those sunglasses. Well, maybe for Christmas.
