Simon's Blog - March 28, 2006

March 28, 2006

Am I ever glad it's Spring Break next week. It's just what I need right now - a week of rest and relaxation and some time to just chill out with friends. Unfortunately, several of my teachers don't quite understand that the definition of "break" in the phrase Spring Break is supposed to mean "a pause or interruption in assigning homework and handing out algebra exercises," (I looked it up in the dictionary). But for some reason, teachers think we don't have anything better to do during a week off school other than memorize the periodic table and write 500-page reports on the last 20,000 years of history. Plus my English teacher assigned me "bonus homework" as a further punishment for my recent experiment in academic dishonesty.

Because of this difference of opinion over what Spring Break is supposed to be about and my recent grounding, my week off school is going to about as exciting as a Barbie Collectors' convention. How am I supposed to find time to play Fight Night Round 3 on my PS2 and learn to nosegrind at the skatepark? It makes me wish scientists would hurry up and invent a human clone. That way I could get my Simon clone to take care of my homework, and I could enjoy Spring Break.

I was hoping to go visit Sindy for Spring Break - but the whole cheating on my essay thing quickly killed any talk of that. That's okay - I'll probably see Sindy some time in the summer anyway when things have cooled down a bit.

What are you doing for Spring Break? Going anywhere exciting or just hangin' out at home? Let me know about plans.

Later,
Simon

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

CoolerThanMyself
I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
