Simon's Blog - June 22, 2004

June 22, 2004

I'm leaving this weekend for two weeks of special learning camp to help me with my reading problems. It's up in the boonies somewhere, near a lake - but miles away from any skateboard parks, PS2s, malls or hot girls. I know it's gonna suck.

Going to "Camp Braindead" wouldn't seem that bad if it wasn't for people with learning problems. Why did I have to get stuck with dyslexia? It makes me feel like I'm an idiot or there's something wrong with me. My older brother's a total moron, who can't even get a girlfriend, but he's somehow been classified as normal. Why does it really matter if I can't read everything properly? Most of the crap they teach us in school is a waste of time anyway. I know how to skate, I know how to download free music off the internet and I know how to cook a burrito in the microwave. Does anything else really matter?

But my mom says there's actually some cool things to do at this camp besides reading and writing classes. You can shoot hoops, go rockclimbing, fishing and canoeing. I just wish the people who'd organized this camp had thought about laying down some pavement so I could go skateboarding. Anyway, this camp will also give me a chance to stop thinking about that dumb bag Kara, and who knows... I may actually meet someone cool or learn something.

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion
