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

To change your eye color, you will need to either wear contacts during the day to appear that you have different colored eyes than you truly have, or medically having a doctor perform surgical iris correction.

    I hope you texted back if you felt that it would be the right thing to do for yourself. I did not have a good childhood due to my birthmother and father. But, in recent time, I have come to enjoy talking to my birthfather and completely cannot stand my birthmother or her new husband anymore. I plan to actually meet him for the first time in 16 years if I can join my fiancé's family vacation.  Point of the matter, do what you feel is right. If you want to talk to him; talk to him. If you don't, don't reply if you don't feel comfortable too. It is purely your choice who you allow in your life, even when it comes down to blood and family.

    It isn't pathetic in the slightest to seek help. I don't think it is right for your mother and siblings to completely disown you over your choice of living arrangements. If they have pushed you away, remember that it is not your fault and it is purely theirs. You made a choice that you felt would benefit you, and judging from their behavior, it was a good choice. As for your father, I don't fight with my own very much, but when I do it tends to be pretty bad. My mother on the other hand, I fight with constantly so I understand where you're coming from. You shouldn't have to do anything. From the sound of it, it seems more like a personal issue going on with himself, especially a sense of shame or regret with his previous exes so he uses you as an outlet because you're the closest thing he has.  I say find an outlet, a healthy one. Sometimes it is best to let them ramble on until they wear themselves out, but remember that self-defense and "talking back" is not always a bad thing just because they are your guardian. It is important to take a stand for yourself. Be respectful, don't sink to their level.

    I think it is very important to find a healthy outlet and someone to talk to whether it's a doctor, friend, family member, ect. You can even find a journal to write in, if it will help you. I promise you, it isn't worth it to let families opinions and views affect you. I let the same thing happen to me and I still struggle over things that I wish I didn't.

    Personally, given your age, the idea of a crush is a bit cute, but you're a little young for anything serious. I would recommend waiting until you truly know what you're doing. (And, believe me, you may not see it now, but you will when you're older.) But, if you really do want to find out, you need to remember that boys and girls both feel things. Boys aren't aliens, they aren't emotionless, and they aren't always just  dumbieheads.  You'll find it funny later on in life from how nervous you had gotten over a crush So honestly, just be straight forward. If you need a topic starter to bring it up, joke about old rumors that used to spread about you both.
