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.

    Dear Dish-It in the forums

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

    Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

    This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
