Simon's Blog - April 14, 2004

April 14, 2004

So I survived the guidance counselor thing - but barely. It was really annoying, and so were the tests. I had never really talked to Mr. Peterman (the GC) before, and he's got this weenie, girlie voice. He's always talking to you like he's your granny and you're three years old. It's dumb.

The tests were pretty lame too. For the first one, I had to copy a paragraph from a book into a journal. Umm... hello people, I've been able to read and write for a while now?! Then they made me read this story out loud, and I gave my mom the biggest evil stare at that one. She knows I can't stand reading in aloud. It makes me mess up.

Anyway, I am not going to bore you with all the gory details but let's just say - it sucked. I'd rather have been in math class taking a pop quiz. The good thing is that cuz of agreeing to do this with them, my parents (especially dad) have become super-cool. It's always a bonus when you can get your 'rents off your back.

Kara never found out about the GC meeting. She ended up being sick that day and wasn't even in school - such a relief. Unfortunately, she wasn't in school the next day either. But I dropped off her homework and a mix CD I burned for her to listen to while she got better. She said she wanted to kiss me, but we both agreed it wasn't a good idea. Dudes, she was all sweaty looking and her nose was all leaky and red. (It was kinda gross).

Anyway, I have another meeting Mr. Peterson and my parents today after school. I guess they're gonna tell me how I did on the tests or something. It must be important cuz both my parents are taking time off work. Maybe they've discovered I'm some kinda genius, like Lisa Simpson or Malcolm from Malcolm in the Middle.

    Goodness... I see where your mother is coming from: if you eat too much, no matter how healthy the food is, and don't work off the calories, you're going to gain weight. But she's being very obsessive and dramatic about it. There is nothing wrong with eating pizza or a cookie every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with relaxing from time to time either. As long as you aren't constantly eating junk and not burning the calories, then you do not have a problem. Eating unhealthy things every now and then does not make you fat. EATING every now and then does not make you fat. Try explaining this to her, calmly and patiently. Tell her that you don't want to be forced to do all of this exercising - being forced to exercise makes it a lot less interesting. Do not take "This is for your own good" for an answer; if you do not want to do it, it is NOT for your good. (This, of course, would be a different story if you were actually fat.) ALSO tell her that exercising too much and not satiating your cravings is JUST AS UNHEALTHY AS BEING FAT IS. If you were to not eat healthful meals and not snack every now and then, no matter how healthy or unhealthy the food is, plus exercise so frequently, you would not be healthy.  Eating is good for you, even if the food isn't. Eating too little and eating too much is not healthy. Exercise is good for you. Not exercising enough and exercising too much is not good for you. If you talking to her doesn't help, try telling another adult how you feel, and maybe they can help get it through to her. Regardless of what happens, take care of yourself. Moderate how much you eat, but don't limit yourself to less than you feel you need. Exercise, but don't do something you don't want to; working out should be fun. Good luck with everything. I'm really sorry that she makes you feel so badly about this.

    I'm perfectly happy with myself. I'm around 5'6" and somewhere between 140-150 pounds, and I don't feel fat. But my mom is constantly telling me that I am, or, at least, that I'm going to be. She forces me to go to exercise classes because I don't like many sports, tries making me go on diets, but I don't want to. She tells me that if I continue the way I am, having an extra cookie once in a while and only eating cereal for breakfast, that I'll end up fat, and she makes sure to emphasize how horrible that is for a person to live with. She rolls her eyes and sighs whenever she sees me getting a snack, and just in general makes me feel awful for eating the things I like and for relaxing. I've told her that I don't want to do these things and that she makes me feel bad when she says things like that, but she swears it's for my own good and that I should never want to be fat, that it ruins people's lives. How should I deal with this?

I know I need to tell her as I don t like keeping secrets from her. I know this was a bit ago, but I truly hope that you were able to be open with your mother. If you feel as if they won't get mad at you, then chances are that your guardian will not. Honesty is the best policy, and if you feel guilt keeping a secret, then it is one you probably shouldn't be keeping.

    I agree with @rainbowpoptart. You really shouldn't worry about relationships that much given your age. I promise, they're better things to worry about than boys and more secure romances occur later on in life anyways. But, given the situation, you shouldn't worry about either. The boy is unfaithful and so is your friend. If your best friend really valued your friendship, she would not have put it in a position that could end it. Don't waste your time on those who will not put you first just as you do for them; better people will come into your life and they are the ones who you should really worry about.
