Simon's Blog - July 5, 2005

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

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    CoolerThanMyself
    I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

    Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

    He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
