May 30, 2006

The Thrasher calendar on my bedroom wall says it's not officially summer for another three weeks - but for me, summer arrives on Memorial Day weekend. That's when I can see the light at the end of that dark tunnel known as school - and that's also the date when the waterpark near my house opens.

I went to Waterworld on the weekend with my friend Matt and the place was screaming with good vibes - great weather, sweet slides and lots of cute girls in bikinis. We spent most of the day riding the tube slide and terrorizing younger kids by flipping them off their tubes. Unfortunately, the power-tripping lifeguard didn't appreciate how much fun we were having, so he banned us from the slide for the rest of the day. What a dolt - you give people a tiny bit of power and a megaphone and they think they should be president.

Anyway, our banishment from the slide didn't stop us from having fun. Instead, it gave us a chance to meet some girls, thanks to Matt. He's usually pretty good at talking to girls. He's kind of full of himself and he always makes up exaggerated stories about things he's never done before - but he does get results.

Matt introduced us to two girls, who were working at Waterworld's snackbar. (Matt says they were impressed by the fact that we'd been kicked us off the tube slide - made us look like "bad boys".) I'm not sure if they thought we we were bad boys or not but I think they liked us because they gave us free burgers and told us to come back next weekend. They said they'd be there and wouldn't be working! Nice weather, free food, cute girls - seems like my summer is off to a great start.

Where do you think the best place to meet cute girls or cute boys is in the summer? The pool? The park? The mall? .

    I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.

    If most people from this generation don't want to be friends with you, you are doing something right.

    Be yourself,do what you like to do and people who like the same things will/should be attracted to you. Don't take to much thought to people who want to change you so then you can be their friend. as i said before just be yourself and people will like you and want to be your friend! TRUST ME ON THIS! :D :D :D :D

    Just be open, and talk to someone. I'm sure once someone starts talking to you they're find you cool, and other people might join in. (:
