April 11, 2006

I never thought I'd actually be glad to be going to school. Yeah, that's right - I was counting down the days and minutes for my Spring Break to come to an end. This had to be one of the worst Spring Breaks of my life. My mom actually took a week off work so she could make sure I spent the week studying, instead of hanging out with friends or watching TV. I spent more time memorizing state capitals than skateboarding. When she did let me take a break from studying - it was because she wanted me to help her around the house. I felt like I was on that show Prison Break, without any chance of escape.

The only thing that saved me was my dog Ralph. There's a reason dogs are called man's best friend. They really come through for you when you need them. He took a crap on the kitchen floor, so my mom made me take him out for a long walk and poop 'n scoop the back yard. Even though that wasn't the most pleasant job, it at least gave me a chance to get out of the house.

But now that spring has arrived, things are looking up. The weather is nice, skateparks are open, I'm going to be on the track team this year and thanks to my slave-driver mom, I'm actually on top of my homework. What are you looking forward to this spring? .

Later,
Simon

Your mom made you study all spring break! My parents took me to Busch Gardens.

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

    When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

    You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

    Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
