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

    There is this guy at my school know my best friend likes, the problem is I like him as well and I think he may have been flirting with me. My friend says its okay but I don't think she's being honest. He's the first guy that I've liked that actually notices me. I like him but I don't want to lose my best friend. What do I do?

    Not really throughout my life but I guess since bullying is repeated teasing, once in fifth grade these kids made up the joke that my name(Su for those you that don't know) stood for StupidUgly, which I mean wasn't THAT bad but I was like what, 10 xD I mean I let it roll off but did end up crying in the shower once. My mom caught me and made me explain everything and made it better. So really, instead of hiding it I recommend talking to an adult about it if you're ever bullied, even tho keeping it a secret may seem like a good idea.  Ever since then I've never been bullied. I'm thankful fo that c;

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumoursspread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.
