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.

    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.

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion
