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

Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family
