June 8, 2006

While Simon is soaking up the rays and hittin' on hotties at the waterpark, I've been cooped up in my bedroom studying for finals. My mom says she wants to see a report card full of A's and B's if I expect to go to camp this summer!

It's not that I'm incapable of getting good grades - I usually do have a decent grade point average. But somehow having an ultimatum like that is really stressing me out. I'm sure if I end up getting a C+ along the way she won't kick up too much of a fuss, but my mom has been known to be unreasonable from time to time... I guess most parents have.

The thing is, I've been hired on at a camp in Pennsyvania, and they're kind of expecting me to be there by the end of the month. I can't imagine it would go over very well if I suddenly told them that I couldn't take the job cuz I didn't get a high enough grade in drama class. Fingers crossed that my nerves don't get the best of me in these next few days and I'll be packing my bags the next time I write you guys!

I should probably take a look at Kidzworld's Camp Preparation article to make sure I have everything I need. I've never been away from home this long before - especially in the middle of nowhere! I'll definitely need to remember to pack my power cord for my MP3 player and lots of good books to get me through! If you guys have any suggestions for good summer reads, let me know! I'm always up for trying something new.

Oh, and if you have any tips on what I should bring to camp, !

Peace Out,

    The loss of my grandad was horrible. I felt so sad at the time. I felt like i would never stop crying when my parents told me. It still makes me sad today...

    Tbh, your mom is kinda, you know, right about it. I mean, net is not as safe as we think it is. All I can tell you is that don't talk about her in front of your mom and don't give your friend any personal details about you.

    I am sorry for what you are going through. I feel that it is time for you to find new friends - true friends. Try finding friends with same interests as you. You'll have more things to talk about that way. I hope things get better with you and your friends.
