Simon's Blog - September 5, 2006

September 5, 2006

Today was the first day back to school. I don't get super excited about another year of lame homework assignments, know-it-all teachers and crappy cafeteria food - but it was great to see all my friends again. There's a few new hot girls in my grade who I checked out and I have a couple of new teachers this year as well. There's always a good vibe in the air on the first day of school - and it's always fun to hear everyone else's stories and adventures from the summer.

I hope to make some new friends this year, stay out of the principal's office and hopefully make the honor roll for the first time in my life. Oh yeah... meeting a hottie who likes to do her boyfriend's homework would be nice as well. To help you peeps out, I've also come up with a few ideas to get your school year off to a good start:

  • Sit next to the smart guy or girl in science class. You may think that kids who are good at science are massive geeks - but they're usually not that bad and a smart friend can make your homework way easier.
  • Make friends with the cafeteria staff. Cafeteria food almost always sucks - but if you get to know the staff and even bribe them with a nice gift once in a while, you'll be surprised how that pays off when you want extra servings of your favorite lunch.
  • Stay out of trouble early - and save your best pranks and smart remarks for later in the year. A principal can make or break your school year, so try to avoid any major trouble for at least the first month or two. By that time, the principal has usually decided who the trouble makers are and you'll be able to fly under the radar.
  • Develop good study and homework habits early on in the year. I'm no Einstein but I do know that if you can get organized and get into a good homework routine, you'll avoid the pain and suffering that usually follows a bad report card.
  • Hate P.E.? I really like P.E. but if you're someone who doesn't, check out these ways of getting out of P.E. class. They'll be a big help for those of you looking for a way to get out of running laps on cold fall mornings.
  • Most importantly, go into the new school year with a good attitude. Every school year is going to be filled with crushes that don't like you, mean gossip, teachers who are out to get you and nasty surprise tests - but your year will be a lot smoother if you start it with a postive vibe and have fun.
  • How was your first day back to school? Are you glad to be back or are you already counting down the days until Christmas Break?

    Later,
    Simon

    I don't have ADHD, but I know plenty about it. One of my friends has ADHD and Tourette's, and the teachers were always turds about it. Anyway, i think that a good way to deal with ADHD acting up is either changing medication or trying to eat foods or drinks with caffeine. I'm not sure if it works for you, but a lot of people with ADHD have seen significant improvements after putting caffeine in their systems. If your friends are acting like turds, you need better friends. I hope my advice helps.

    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!
