Simon and Ralph

March 20, 2007

Just when I thought I couldn't take another day of winter, the weather gods have taken pity on me and given me a break. Okay, it was a short break - only about four hours of sun yesterday afternoon before dissolving back into rain again.

Anyway, the brief burst of sun means one thing - spring is almost here. And spring means one thing - spring break! The hard partying in Cancun is going to have to wait until I'm in college - or, you know - until my mom will let me travel without her. So I'm going to have to come up with slightly more reasonable plans. I imagine there will be a lot of PlayStation, skateboarding and foosball. Yup, Ben just got a foosball table in his basement. That's almost as good as getting my own. Score!

I'm still playing with the camera my aunt got me a lot. Mostly, I've been taking pictures of my dog because he doesn't mind how long it takes me to set up my shots. I'm hoping to branch out to other stuff once the weather gets nicer. There's some pretty cool graffiti in my city that I'd like to take pictures of. Maybe I could enlarge some of the better shots and hang them up in my room. My space could definitely use a re-vamp - but I draw the line at sewing my own curtains like Sindy did.

But back to my dog for a second. Have you seen that there is this recall on for a bunch of different pet foods? Thankfully my dog Ralph wasn't affected, but I read that some people's pets died! I didn't mind last year's spinach recall (who wants to eat spinach anyway?), but if a pet food company hurt Ralph, I'd freak out.

So, what are your spring break plans? Are you going on vacation or are you just hanging out at home? !

Later,
Simon

    Hi Jaera!      sisihastwobunnies is right. It's perfectly fine for you to have a crush, but you're a little young for a "love life." Don't worry though! Someday, if it's meant to be (Ha ^-^) you'll find the one who's just right for you. Until then, it's great to have good guy friends -and in years to come if one of those friendships develop into something more, then props to you (:  Future advice: You have to understand that feelings aren't always mutual. You may like someone and they'll see you only as a friend -or vice versa.  THIS IS OKAY.  It may hurt, but that's just proof that you'll have to move on. Something better is ahead,  you simply haven't gotten there yet (: Having patience can be hard, but it's worth it. Good luck! -And I hoped this helped!                                    Wishing you the best,                                             american_brit ^-^

    I want to own a pony  You want to own a pony it was dirty and smelly  All animals has their own unique smell and its how animals smell. You was feeling ill so it could of smelt even worse I felt low in the class You was ill and its understandable that you was feeling awful I feel really nervous about going tomorrow for a proper riding day. Me suggestion is to ask the stables for the horse you would feel more comfortables riding I think it's 8 hours 15 minutes!  I knows you think there wont be breaks but there will be and probably about every hour or so.  Dont worry about this. Yay you got all jodphurs and boots and your all set. Me suggestion is go along tomorrow and relax and enjoy it.  Sure it does costs money to go there but your parents wouldnt be organising it if they hadnt got the money to pay.  If you doesnt like it after you tried it then say you dont wanna go again. It does sounds epical though and good luck for tomorrow  :angel

    I went to own a pony day but I got the start of a short illness and I was scared and it was dirty and smelly and I felt low in the class but I was oldest on the biggest horse and now I feel really nervous about going tomorrow for a proper riding day. I think it's 8 hours 15 minutes! That's like, school with no break or lunch and four extra lessons! I acted excited cause I got rosettes and lollies and mum took me out for jodpurs and boots but now I feel a bit sick and tight and wobbly even though it was fun on wednesday and I have 3 sort of friends there already and the horse I rode, Bob, was great! Mum's in Wales and having a nice time so I don't want to dull her and I talked to Dad but he said 'don't worry I don't know what mum will think sorry'. I don't want to say no or quit later on cause: I'll feel bad to Bob The stables is just up the road so when I see the owner (who's real nice to me) or the instructor (who's at my school) I'll feel bad for saying no I don't want to join you I feel like mum will be disappointed cause she used to adore riding and had 2 horses and a pony I always begged to ride since I was 3 and so it's been over a decade! It costs cash. Cash, cash, cash. From mum and dad's pockets. Cash.

You already have traits, quirks, gifts, and talents put in you by God, and you just need to "put yourself out there" to discover what they are and what you can do with them. Don't worry so much about knowing who you are right now, you'll find that out in time. Just try to become the best you can be with what you have." Exactly ^-^ I don't think I could explain it any better. "_ALizB_" wrote:So pretty much what y'all are saying is, give it time?  Basically.

    Ello and Im sorry for saying this but from what you has said so far you hardly knows either of them.  You like them cos of how they look. Me advise is get to know both of them and be the friends first and see what happens if something happens and how your feelings evolves. Take your time and good luck :) :love
