Simon's Blog - April 27, 2004

April 27, 2004

I've been practicing kickflips for months now, but until today, all I've had to show for it is a few cases of road rash and a twisted ankle. But today, I finally landed one for the first time. It was sick. I popped the board up, did a perfect flip with my foot and stomped it. This was better than getting to second base. I haven't actually gotten to second base yet, but once Kara gets over her cold, I hope to start getting some serious action. I brought her homework and made her a get-well CD last week, so there better be a payoff! My brother, Miguel, says Kara's older sister kisses with tongue, so I'm definitely dating the right family.

The only bummer about my first kickflip was that no else one saw it. I was skating with Ben at the mall parking lot but he was too busy trying to pop a zit on the side of his cheek, so he missed it. So, Ben's face was a bleeding mess and I had no witnesses to my kicklip. Not very cool. If I'd only managed to tape my kickflip, I'd be one step closer to getting sponsored - then I wouldn't have to beg my 'rents for cash, I definitely wouldn't have to worry about homework and I'd be hangin' out with Tony Hawk, instead of my zit-popping friend, Ben.

Anyway, my moment of skateboarding glory didn't last long. Some fat, slobby security guard, named Lyle, informed us that skateboarding is strictly prohibited on mall property and threatened to call the police. What a loser - I bet he'll never kiss a girl with tongue! So, Ben and I booked it home and played Tony Hawk's Underground all afternoon. Today was a nice break from all the crap I've had to deal with from parents, teachers and annoying guidance counselors. My grades may stink and my parents may be annoying - but I can land a kickflip.

    I hope you don't mind that I moved this to friends, but I thought it'd be more fitting since your question seems mainly friendship based. :) Do you mind being younger than your classmates? Do you feel it inhibits your school experience? I think you should do what feels best to you, whether that be staying behind because friendship has a big impact, or continuing ahead if you prioritize academic growth. Only you know what's right for you. :p If it's any help, I left high school early and went to college. I was already used to being the youngest in my class so it wasn't a huge jump socially, and I found a lot of friends of all ages. :D With that being said, I do still miss being with people my age but it's too late to go back and I wouldn't trade my experience for the world.

    I'm 13 and will be going on to 9th grade. I skipped kindergarted  :p and 5th grade. So I'm a lot younger then most of my classmates will be. I'm thinking of repeating 8th grade so I will be more of the same age as the other people in my class. But I'm not sure if I should because I got a B+ or A- average in 8th grade. I need some advice on this. Sorry if this is the wrong section for this I just thought general was the right place. Thanks!  :D

    I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)
