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

    There is this guy at my school know my best friend likes, the problem is I like him as well and I think he may have been flirting with me. My friend says its okay but I don't think she's being honest. He's the first guy that I've liked that actually notices me. I like him but I don't want to lose my best friend. What do I do?

    Not really throughout my life but I guess since bullying is repeated teasing, once in fifth grade these kids made up the joke that my name(Su for those you that don't know) stood for StupidUgly, which I mean wasn't THAT bad but I was like what, 10 xD I mean I let it roll off but did end up crying in the shower once. My mom caught me and made me explain everything and made it better. So really, instead of hiding it I recommend talking to an adult about it if you're ever bullied, even tho keeping it a secret may seem like a good idea.  Ever since then I've never been bullied. I'm thankful fo that c;

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumoursspread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.
