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

I was 13 before I was allowed to keep my own laptop in my room. I have many friends who are 13 and 14 that their parents check what they do. You are going to have to live with it until they feel you can be safe on your own.

    It doesn't effect me,  really. I mean come on, people should have some freedom in what they wear. Clothing is used as a way to express oneself. Without any words being spoken.
