Simon's Blog - May 16, 2006

May 16, 2006

I'm certainly starting to feel summer is just about here. The good weather has arrived, my teachers are babbling about final exams and my dad keeps pestering me to cut the lawn. I've tried to explain to my dad that if I spend too much time cutting the grass, I won't have any time to study - but apparently our lawn looking nice is more important than me avoiding summer school.

I don't have any plans to spend even one second in a classroom this summer - I had a week of that last year and that was more than enough. My summer plans include racing in a few soapbox derby races, a lot of skateboarding and some sort of summer job. I don't really like working in the summer - but if I don't get a job, my parents will just make me do work for free around our house, so I need to find some way to make some real money.

My parents also have a big summer road trip planned which I'm excited about. We're all going to drive down to Florida and go to Disney World. I've never been to Florida before so all I really know about the place is that there's lots of golf courses, big homes and the alligators down there are now making humans part of their regular diet. I'll be sure to bring some alligator traps and be ready to push my older brother if any gators start heading our way!

What do you have planned for this summer? Are you going anywhere cool? Are you getting a job? Have you been sentenced to summer school?

Later,
Simon

    This is going to sound completely cliche, but the best thing is to just be yourself. You'll make friends no problem. People can tell when you're being genuine or not, and they definitely appreciate you for who you are more than if you tried to be someone else. You got this, it'll be a fun and exciting experience. :)

    On a typical day I wear a pair of ripped jeans and either a hoodie or jacket, and a snapback. The opposite would probably be a dress lmao.

    I also love expensive clothing. Brand names are my thing. But I always shop either during sale times or at second hand stores. Sales are my best friend, honestly. It might be frustrating to wait, but it's worth it in the end. Shop only on sale racks in big stores, and scout out smaller second hand stores that often carry brand names, never worn, but for a cheaper price.
