January 18, 2005

I had my first karate lesson since Christmas break and I am really starting to be a force. I can now break a stack of boards with one hand - no problem. I showed my older brother when I got home and he couldn't believe it. I think he might even be scared of me now. Whenever we get into wrestling matches, which later turn into fist fights, he always beats me. But I know I could lay a beating on him now if I had to. Karate is only supposed to be for self-defence, so I would never attack him, but if he bugs me about not having a girlfriend or getting zits, I won't be afraid to give him an introduction to martial arts.

I saw Josh again at karate this week and he was acting super weird. This dude is super wound up and always trying to get attention. He brought his Dad's gun to karate a while back and this week he was going on again about all the knives he has and how he's going to kick some guy's butt at school who really bugs him. I don't know what his story is but he definitely needs to chill for a bit.

Anyway, it's time for me to turn a pile of boards into sawdust...

Later,
Simon

    I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

    I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.

    Hey! Yeah, I'm also one of those girls who doesn't wear makeup either... maybe on a rare occasion? Or if pestered into it.  I definitely understand where you're coming from with this. My mom doesn't exactly try to get me to wear it, but is she did, I wouldn't be to happy out this either. Don't feel bad. You're beautiful no matter what; makeup doesn't  define you -unless, of course you let it...  She probably wants you to feel "more grown up,"  or thinks it's nice for a "young lady," or that'll "boost your confidence." I don't know, there could be plenty of reasons.  If you feel uncomfortable the best thing to do would be to talk to her about it. Respectfully tell how you really feel and make sure she's listening.
