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

Well, you're just going to have to go and give it another chance. You never know, you may like it there. Sometimes we have to face our fears and it might be really scary but usually in the end it is worth it.

Or you could be more social with other family. The only way to beat being unsocial in big groups is to put yourself into the situation and learn. You could actually have a great time :)Just relax, be yourself. Ask questions. People love to talk about themselves so ask lots. It'll keep conversation going and you'll learn about possible later conversation topics. Also smile and be friendly. Make small talk. Remember you're there to celebrate a happy time in someone's life. You might not like it but it's their big day, one of the biggest in their life. And your dad and sister are going so you could always stick around them if socializing doesn't work. Sorry for late reply! ^-^ Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it. Problem is, only my sister has anything to wear and my dad is fretting over something that will match, but I think that was just sorted out. I'm picky over what to wear and I'm not aloud to wear boots or leggings, which I practically live in. Though I'm probably only going to stay for a few hours since the dog's not able to go to the kennel right now.
