Simon's Blog - May 30, 2006

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? .

Later,
Simon

    Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

    Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!

    You go out and you find someone who you can be you with. It's not a hard question to find the answer too.
