July 24, 2003

Wow! It's been so hot lately, we haven't felt like moving. It's cool cuz the place we're stayin' at has this crazy-huge pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas so you can just grab a book or your Gameboy and chill out. Nice.

Yesterday the heat was totally getting to us so, Simon and I decided to invent our very own summer treat to cool ourselves down. Amy, of course, had to weasel her way into helping us by whining to mom, who made me include her. Grrrr! Sometimes that kid really annoys me. Anyway, first we grabbed some juice and dumped it into some Dixie cups from the hotel bathroom, tossed some popsicle sticks in (we found those at a craft store) and put 'em in the minibar freezer. They were pretty good, but they melted so fast! I had drippy popsicle juice all over my arms. Not cool.

But we did, eventually, hit the jackpot when it comes to cool summer snacks. Since the popsicle thing wasn't working and we didn't have a ton of ingredients to play around with, we decided to throw our box of Poptarts in the freezer. Yeah, I know - it sounds a little weird but man, do they taste good. They cooled us down and there was no drippy mess. Trust me. You have to try this at home!

I'm going to have to share my new recipe with Dylan when I get home. That is if he remembers who I am. It's starting to feel like I've been away for years. Okay, a little of an exaggeration, but it does feel like this trip has been going on forever. But who am I to complain? A couple weeks of pool/sun time with my best friend is pretty great.

PS - Thanks to all you peeps who sent in your thoughts from my entry last week!

My friend says its okay but I don't think she's being honest. He's the first guy that I've liked that actually notices me. I like him but I don't want to lose my best friend. What do I do?

    Not really throughout my life but I guess since bullying is repeated teasing, once in fifth grade these kids made up the joke that my name(Su for those you that don't know) stood for StupidUgly, which I mean wasn't THAT bad but I was like what, 10 xD I mean I let it roll off but did end up crying in the shower once. My mom caught me and made me explain everything and made it better. So really, instead of hiding it I recommend talking to an adult about it if you're ever bullied, even tho keeping it a secret may seem like a good idea.  Ever since then I've never been bullied. I'm thankful fo that c;

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumoursspread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.
