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

I wouldn't worry about getting "in the middle of their relationship". If he makes a pass at someone else (you?) then that's HIS problem, not yours... and he probably wasn't worth your friends' time in the first place. Sorry, but you can't fix other people's stupid. And if it's you who's chasing, remember: friends are more important than some stupid/angsty short-term fling. Trust me-- I lost a few friends that way, and those relationships doesn't last very long afterwards. #TeenageWisdom

    I rather you tell them the truth.....It's better to get help during times like this.. But if you wanna go down THAT road. (which includes lying, deep guilt, and possibly more scars...just a warning.) Here's how. 1. Hide them, wear bracelets long sleeves, whatever. just do it. 2. LIE. say you cut your self from glass of a REALLY bad paper cut...anything. 3. STOP!. Don't cut, easiest thing to do. At least let the scars fade... Like I said, I don't really want to help you with this stuff. TALK to someone. I cannot stress this enough. Good Luck....
