July 5, 2005

I'm now on a summer job hunt, thanks to my mom, who thinks I should be spending my summer working. She's cutting off my allowance for the summer, because she says I'm perfectly capable of working for money. That's really thrown a glitch into my summer plans. How can I possibly finish my skateboarding video, find a girlfriend and enjoy the sun if I'm working all summer. I tried convincing my Dad that getting a summer job was a bad idea, but he wouldn't even listen to me. Sometimes parents never see the big picture.

There's a skate shop near my house, which might be a cool place to work. I could also apply for a job at one of the stores at the mall - but none of those places seem like very fun places to work. You usually have to wear a stupid uniform and deal with a bunch of super lame people. I checked out some cool job search tips from Kidzworld, which were pretty helpful. You can check them out as well, by clicking here. They may not help you get your dream summer job, but they'll at least steer you in the right direction.

I'd much rather have a cool undercover job - like a superhero or something, where I just skateboard and chill during the day, then rescue hot girls and beat up mean people at night... kind of like Batman. But if I can't find a way to get some super powers in the next week, I'll probably be spending the summer cutting grass or serving icecream. Are any of you guys working this summer? about your summer plans.

Later,
Simon

    Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family
