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.

Later,

Simon

    I think its really great you posted this, cause a lot of people need it. Adults don't notice children problems. When I was in 2ed grade i was bullied by teens that were like 16. Not only that, teachers can bully kids too. My mom always puts people who try to kill them selves down in awful ways. Every time she says that stuff I am very offended by it cause she knows I have emotional problems but she still like to dig into it. Someone who feels they need to kill themselves needs someone to trust and talk to. I'm so happy you posted this. Cause it is so true!
