August 30, 2005

I can't believe summer is just about over - it went by way too fast. It's like one moment you can't wait for summer to start and the next moment everyone's talking about back to school. I've never been a big fan of going to school, but there are some things about this time of year that I'm pretty stoked about:

  • I made a bunch of money at my summer job so I can buy new clothes and Madden NFL 06 for my PS2.
  • I met a hot girl at the mall where I work and she's going to be going to my school.
  • Football season is starting and the Super Bowl is coming to Detroit!
  • A skateboard company that sells decks to the store where I work offered to sponsor me at my next skate comp! They're going to hook me up with a new deck and tons of other skate stuff!
  • My older brother is going to be going to a different school than me, so I won't be running into him or his loser friends as much.
  • Here's what I'm totally dreading about going back to school...

  • Waking up to an annoying alarm clock and having my life controlled by a schedule.
  • Eating crappy cafeteria food that looks like it wants to attack me.
  • Dealing with teachers who assign way too much homework.
  • Listening to teachers tell me I can't skateboard in the hallway.
  • What are you looking forward to about back to school? What are you dreading? or if you're geared up or if it's bringing you down.

    Later,
    Simon

    Back-to-School - Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?

    • Thumbs up - I love going back to school.
    • Thumbs down - I wish summer was an extra six months.
    • I'm not too bummed.
    • I'm homeschooled so it doesn't really make a difference.

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...

    I don't know. It honestly could be that she likes you, or she is just a really good friend.
