Simon Gets A New Skateboard

August 3, 2004

So, I'm back in the city after two weeks at camp. It was way cooler than I thought it would be, but I'm also pretty stoked to be back at home. Two weeks of no skateboarding, no TV and no video games was a bit much. I told my brother, Miguel, about the two kids who were smoking. He said it was cool that I didn't smoke, but said I should tell mom about the other kids. He figured she'd find out about the other kids somehow and I'd get brownie points if I told her first.

My brother usually doesn't have many bright ideas but I decided to take his advice on this one and talk to mom. I thought she'd be ticked that I was hangin' out with kids who were smoking - but Miguel was right (I guess he's not as much of a moron as I thought he was.) When I told Mom about the other kids at camp smoking, she was super impressed that I decided not to have a cigarette and that I came forward and told her.

Just how impressed was she? She bought me a brand new Andy Mac skateboard!. That's totally wicked. I got a new skateboard just for NOT smoking. How easy was that? I bet if I told her I said, "No" to drugs, she'd buy me a dirtbike!

I was going to message Sindy and tell her but she's in major trouble right now from her parents for getting her belly button pierced - and I thought she'd be even more upset if I told her how well things are going for me right now.

Anyway, I'm off to jump some curbs and and slide some rails - then I'm off to the Warped Tour next week!

Later,

Simon

    Dear Dish-It in the forums

    CarnivalDay
    Hiya. My cousin is getting married next Wednesday! The only thing is I really don't want to go. This may sound disrespectful and/or rude, but I don't really get along with his fiancé. I can't talk to her properly (incredibly stiff and hard to talk to her) and I don't think she likes me that much. Also, I'm kinda (largely) unsocial in big groups, and the fiancé apparently has a giant family coming. -.- Also, my dog -which we brought home a few months ago- hasn't had proper vaccinations (we found out she was slightly neglected and had matts everywhere. It must've been so painful) and can't get her into a kennel place (Kennel cough) or dog sitting service on such short notice. My mum will probably be staying home with her and dad and sister is going. But mum can't really say "I have to look after the dog" because they'll find it disrespectful and my cousin and his fiancé doesn't really like my at home family. The last resort is to make a excuse (but my mum doesn't really want to lie) and I'd like to make the excuse of I'm ill and mum needs to take care if me. If I have to go, does anyone have tips for going to a wedding you don't want to go to. sorry for long post,

    I think you should be you wether or not your tomboy or girlie your being you. You have your own style and don't let nobody change that because THEY don't like it it only matters if YOU like it

    This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!
