Simon's Blog - July 20, 2004

July 20, 2004

So, my second week at camp has been pretty wild. I've been rock climbing, water skiing and even fishing. And I think my reading is even getting a bit better as well - that's why I'm here, right?

All the other peeps here have been pretty cool. I've been mostly hanging out with Ryan and Shaun, who are both really into skateboarding and riding BMX. We had some free time yesterday so we were just hangin' out by our cabin, when Ryan brought out a pack of cigarettes. He said he steals them all the time from his older sister, who smokes. Ryan lit up one of the cigarettes and started smoking. It was totally stinky but it looked like he knew what he was doing. Then Ryan asked me and Shaun to try one. I said, "No thanks dude, I'm training for the 2007 X Games." Shaun lit one up, but I don't think he enjoyed it too much. As soon as he took a puff, he totally started coughing and hacking and he didn't look too good. He even started to turn a bit green and I thought he was going to puke!

We heard one of the camp counsellor's yelling our names, so Ryan quickly put the cigarette out and hid the pack under a rock. The camp counselor, Sarah, came by and asked us what we were doing. Shaun said, "We were just looking for bear fossils." Sarah gave us a strange look and told us it was time to watch a movie. I don't think she knew what Ryan and Shaun were doing, but she knew we were guilty of doing something. Anyway, I hope she doesn't find out or I know we'll be in trouble. Especially, if my parents find out. My mom would go insane if she found out I was hangin' out with kids who smoke, even if I didn't try one. And the last think I need right now is some sort of lecture from the 'rents.

What do you think? Should I tell my parents that kids were smoking at camp? Or should I keep my trap shut and say nothing? what you would do.

Later,

Simon

    Do You Like Camping?

    • Yes - I love camping.
    • I don't mind it, but I'd rather be at the mall or the skatepark.
    • I hate it. I'd rather go to summer school than go camping.

    I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

    Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

    He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
