Read about Simons dyslexia and summer camps as he blogs in his free online teen journal.

July 6, 2004

Well, I've already got some good news from the first week at this camp. It turns out that having dyslexia doesn't mean I'm some kind of retarded freak... one of my teachers at the camp says I'm actually more intelligent than most of the other kids at my school - it's just that my brain sees words differently from other kids. Dyslexia makes words look jumbled to me and makes it a pain in the butt for me to read things. Like, when I see a sentence, it looks something like this to me...

Yo u'dth inkre ading wa sapa inint hebutti fev eryth ingloo ked li kethis!

See what I mean? I've always wondered why I was good at math and sports, but sucked at reading, so now I understand. So, the teachers at the camp are teaching me some new ways to learn sounds and read words, which is gonna make my reading and writing a lot better. That means I might be able to get rid of some of those Ds and Fs, which have been a regular part of my report cards.

This camp has actually been pretty cool. I'd rather be back home skateboarding and hangin' with my friends - but it's better than making fries at Burger Max like my older brother is. There's about 20 other peeps in my class. Most of them are pretty cool. We do reading during the morning, then go do cool stuff in the afternoon like shoot hoops, go canoeing or play paintball. I haven't met any girls I like here yet - but that's okay. Summer's just started and I've got another week of camp still to go.

Later,

Simon

1I don't think Simon should be looking for cute girls at his camp when he already has a girlfriend at home.

1I think that having that problem makes things better, because I know a lot of people who are different people like you!
