80. That's the magic number of days until winter vacation starts. It also happens to be the mark I need to get on my next science test if I'm going to avoid showing my parents a shiny "D" on my fall report card. If you haven't figured it out yet - my school year hasn't got off to the best start. I've been spending more time sitting in detention than skateboarding and even more time arguing with my parents about why they keep getting phone calls from the principal.

The latest phone call to the 'rents came after my friend Ben and I used our science text books and a food tray to build a skate ramp in the cafeteria. It was totally rad. Too bad we were only able to use if for about 5 minutes before one of the loser hall monitors told a teacher who directed us right to the principal. He gave us both detention for a week and took my skateboard! What a butt munch!

My parents then grounded me for a week and cancelled my allowance for a month. I tried to convince them that this latest incident was connected to my dyslexia because I have problems reading school rules - but they weren't buying it. They just got even more mad. Anyway, I better go use my science textbook for something other than a skate ramp - I'm guessing a "D" on next month's report card won't be looked upon too favorably.

How's your school year going so far?

Later,
Simon

I wouldn't worry about getting "in the middle of their relationship". If he makes a pass at someone else (you?) then that's HIS problem, not yours... and he probably wasn't worth your friends' time in the first place. Sorry, but you can't fix other people's stupid. And if it's you who's chasing, remember: friends are more important than some stupid/angsty short-term fling. Trust me-- I lost a few friends that way, and those relationships doesn't last very long afterwards. #TeenageWisdom

    I rather you tell them the truth.....It's better to get help during times like this.. But if you wanna go down THAT road. (which includes lying, deep guilt, and possibly more scars...just a warning.) Here's how. 1. Hide them, wear bracelets long sleeves, whatever. just do it. 2. LIE. say you cut your self from glass of a REALLY bad paper cut...anything. 3. STOP!. Don't cut, easiest thing to do. At least let the scars fade... Like I said, I don't really want to help you with this stuff. TALK to someone. I cannot stress this enough. Good Luck....
