Simon's Blog - November 8, 2005

November 8, 2005

Did you know that if you were a kid in Ancient Egypt you couldn't skateboard or watch TV? And that the only thing you really studied in school was math. You'd also get married when you were 12 and if you didn't want to study math, you'd get beaten up and have to spend your life building pyramids. It might not have been exactly like that all the time, but that's kinda what I picked up from my history class today. Some of the stuff we're learning at school is actually interesting now - for like the first time ever. And now that the weather is getting colder, I seem to pay attention more at school, because I'm not always looking at the nice weather outside and wishing I was doing something else.

Cold weather also means I'm spending way more time inside, so I'm posting a few of my top ways of chilling out on cold fall days this month:

  • Mission Paintball: - It's a Plug and Play TV game that basically turns your TV into a realistic paintball park. Totally addictive - check it out, right here.
  • Rent Revenge of the Sith - Cool special effects, tons of sweet lightsaber battles and plenty of Yoda. Check out Kidzworld's review right here.
  • SSX On Tour - The newest snowboarding game from EA Sports has tons of high-speed stunts and racing action. Check out this review, right here.
  • Oh yeah, one more thing... I know Christmas is still a few weeks away - but it's never too early to start planting ideas in your parents' head about what you'd like to see under the tree this year. Kidzworld has just lauched it's Top Toy Countdown. It's a chance for you to rate some super sweet toys and games and get some ideas for your Christmas Wish List (hopefully my parents won't remember my mid-term report card when they do they're Christmas shopping). Check it out right here for a chance to win.

    What are you hoping to get for Christmas this year? Seen any cool toys or games that should be on my wish list?

    Later,
    Simon

    Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

    Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!

    You go out and you find someone who you can be you with. It's not a hard question to find the answer too.
