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.

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

    When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

    You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

    Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
