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.

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)
