March 2, 2004

I got grounded. It sucks so bad! I only got a C on my math test (not a C+) so dad grounded me. I got really ticked off and yelled back at him - which is a big mistake in my house. Dad extended my grounding from one week to two. Go Simon! I was just so mad at him. I studied - really studied hard - for that stupid test! Miguel even did flash cards with me, but does dad take *that* into consideration? Nope.

Mom came home from work Saturday morning (after her nightshift at the hospital) and she flipped on dad for being so rough on me. That was cool, but then they didn't talk all weekend, which wasn't cool.

Anyway, today I have news which may make both mom and dad happy. We had to do this oral book report in English class - I picked a Lemony Snicket book - and I got a B+!!! Mrs. Englewood said she could tell I put a lot of effort in, and that I was a great public speaker! I wish all my assignments were oral presentations - I'd smoke 'em all. Sure there is a lot of research and memorizing involved, but it beats math and essay questions any day!

I gotta get off the computer now. Dad comes home from work any minute and I am not supposed to be on the computer unlesss it's "homework related." Besides, I wanna get a quick call in to my friend Ben and find out if Kara was at the skatepark after school. Last time I was there (pre-grounding), she told me I had a nice ollie. By the time I get to go again, she'll probably have forgotten all about me. Thanks dad!

    My mom. She utterly hates me and whenever we fight she not only takes all my things away in a rage so I can't talk to anyone online, she screams about how I'm stupid, lazy and a horrible person and other similar bad stuff. Thanks for the self esteem boost Mom (:

    My mom can be really scary and persuasive when she wants something done and if we don't do it, you better WATCH OUT!!!

    Ok so, my dad caught me rocking out to Fade and now I'm grounded because the only reason I know that band is because of Deadman Wonderland and I'm not allowed to watch anime at my dad's house. And idk. So now I'm grounded.

    My best friend is actually my girlfriend now. We were besties since Kindergarten and we never really looked at each other as anything more than friends until recently.  To be honest, it's probably been the best relationship I've had in my life so far and we have only been dating for over a month! She is the best thing to ever happen to me

    My brother committed suicide just last Saturday because he gave up on life. No matter how hard I tried to help him or to figure out what was wrong (even though he acted like everything was okay) he still went through with it. I don't think anybody should go through something like that. If you feel sad or lonely or as if life is against you and you have suicide thoughts, you should go talk to someone, even if it has to be your friends or a family member because somebody ALWAYS cares about you. You'll always come out of life with a scar but that's what makes it worth the fight, so keep fighting and never give up (:
