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.

    It's normal to feel jealousy, and it's not really too bad a thing unless you let it get to you and cause problems. I get jealous as hell but I try to avoid letting it affect the way I hold a conversation, for example.

    So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?

    My best friend is autistic and mild to moderate on the spectrum. He has a daily routine and obviously keeps to it.  His sister who's 18 told me about his condition. And she spoke to me about how much help he needs around the house. My friend doesn't actually need all that much help, as his autism isn't that bad compared to others I know. He mainly suffers reading people's emotions, and having the confidence to make friends and talk aloud. But his sister did complain that he was always the needy one around the house when she was younger.  What you've got to understand is that autism affects people in different ways, no autistic person is the same, and so requires a different level of work and help towards them. Your brothers didn't ask for this. They were born like that. I know how it feels though, feeling left out. And feeling like your parents don't love you. They really do. They just don't have time to express that love, which is kinda sad really.  Maybe you could get involved in helping your brothers out. Depending on how old they are, you can educate them on reading emotions, and things like that. They're great life skills. Or simply just being there for them is something you can do. Autism itself is a pretty frustrating thing for the person who has it. My friend hates it, but tries to live with it as a gift. Just a little support can go a long way.
