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.

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    Did something happen between you two in the past? If so, I feel like she might have some unresolved issues with you that you need to discuss with her. And, time doesn't always mean a lot. I've gotten closer to someone before compared to someone whom I had known for 8 years.

    Dear Dish-it,                          Me and my friend just started talking again, and it seems like she regrets it. She'll leave me for the people she has only known for a couple of months, when I've been friends with her for a year. Also, she gets annoyed with me, and I don't know what to do.

    I'll be honest, I don't think that it's very fair that you're placing so much blame on your mother. Cancer is very hard to heal in any animal or person. She may of been able to help one spot, but that doesn't mean that she was going to be able to heal the rest. There's a slim chance that they could of made it through, but it's probably for the best that she put him down. Cancer is a painful thing to go through for dogs and humans alike. It would of been worse to push it. As for the depression, I understand where you're coming from with it. It's a difficult thing to go through and it makes things hard to do. I've struggled with things in the past and sometimes still do, so take my word on this: Eat. What. You. Can. Don't starve yourself. Don't binge. Don't do anything. Keep eating. Your health matters too. You need to find things to do, like hobbies (drawing, reading, writing, ect.) and spend time with friends when you can. At least talk to your friends, don't push them away. They're there for you, even when they might not know how to be. Don't be ashamed to cry, it's perfectly fine too. It's a better alternative of getting things out than a lot of things you could be doing. Do not, under any circumstances, start cutting. Take it from someone who's dealt with it on a personal level in several ways, do not start it. It is not something you "won't get addicted too" and it will not be a "one time thing." Do not try it. Do not start it. Do not try to find "softer" alternatives to cutting. Self-harm is not a fixer, it does not help anything. It isn't something to be ashamed of. It's a personal issue along with mental illness. But it is a very big deal. "And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help?" There isn't always a place to help. Sometimes it won't do the things we wish it would.

    My dog, Loki, was old and had cancer. He was 14. My mom healed one of his cancer spots but not even a month later, she put him down. He had life in him. He played like a puppy. If she healed one spot, why couldnt she heal the rest? He could have lived right? He was like my little brother, I loved him like one. He was family. Every since he passed, Ive been depressed. Losing weight and not wanting to go out and hangout with friends. Me and my mom get into fights more. At some points, I hate her for what she did. I dont dare tell anyone about my depression and I cry every night until 3:30 am. I have considered cutting but I dont want anyone to judge me. Im not going to but I just want someone to understand what his loss did to my heart. Ive had him since i was a baby. He was my best friend. And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help? I was mad. Can anyone relate? Can someone help me? ( im not going to a therapist btw ) UGH WHAT DO I DO?!
