Simon's Blog - April 3, 2007

April 3, 2007

Spring Break was amazing! I got to hang out with Vanessa a lot and even go to her house. Sure, her parents think we're "just friends" but I'm cool with that as long as they let us hang out.

The weather was unseasonably nice for most of the week, which meant I was able hang out at the skate park a lot. "Unseasonably nice" where I live means that you can go outside without getting snowed on, not that you can go surfing - like Sindy can. Maybe I should start working on mom now to see if she'll let me take a trip to visit that girl in the summer. We could hang 10 together (well, I could hang 10 and Sindy could hang a maximum of six or seven).

So, get this - Ben has a girlfriend now. The guy is my friend and all, but he doesn't exactly have a way with the ladies so I'm more than a little surprised. Sure, I'm happy for him but he's hanging with her 24/7 and won't come to the skate park with me. I've been dating Vanessa since New Year and I still make time for my friends! I'm going to give him a couple of weeks to snap out of it and then, if he's still acting crazy, I'm so going to conspire to break them up. It wouldn't be nice, but it would be pretty funny.

I'm not thrilled about being back at school. This is always the time of year that I kick myself for not studying more. End-of-year exams are looming and my mom's nagging is ramping up to full-throttle. I guess I'm going to have to come up with a game plan for how I'm going to deal with it all. Why can't it be Spring Break all the time?

I hope you all had/are having a good break. I don't suppose any of you have any fail-safe study tips for me? Oh, and how about ideas for how to break Ben and his girlfriend up? Send them my way!

Later,
Simon

To change your eye color, you will need to either wear contacts during the day to appear that you have different colored eyes than you truly have, or medically having a doctor perform surgical iris correction.

    I hope you texted back if you felt that it would be the right thing to do for yourself. I did not have a good childhood due to my birthmother and father. But, in recent time, I have come to enjoy talking to my birthfather and completely cannot stand my birthmother or her new husband anymore. I plan to actually meet him for the first time in 16 years if I can join my fiancé's family vacation.  Point of the matter, do what you feel is right. If you want to talk to him; talk to him. If you don't, don't reply if you don't feel comfortable too. It is purely your choice who you allow in your life, even when it comes down to blood and family.

    It isn't pathetic in the slightest to seek help. I don't think it is right for your mother and siblings to completely disown you over your choice of living arrangements. If they have pushed you away, remember that it is not your fault and it is purely theirs. You made a choice that you felt would benefit you, and judging from their behavior, it was a good choice. As for your father, I don't fight with my own very much, but when I do it tends to be pretty bad. My mother on the other hand, I fight with constantly so I understand where you're coming from. You shouldn't have to do anything. From the sound of it, it seems more like a personal issue going on with himself, especially a sense of shame or regret with his previous exes so he uses you as an outlet because you're the closest thing he has.  I say find an outlet, a healthy one. Sometimes it is best to let them ramble on until they wear themselves out, but remember that self-defense and "talking back" is not always a bad thing just because they are your guardian. It is important to take a stand for yourself. Be respectful, don't sink to their level.

    I think it is very important to find a healthy outlet and someone to talk to whether it's a doctor, friend, family member, ect. You can even find a journal to write in, if it will help you. I promise you, it isn't worth it to let families opinions and views affect you. I let the same thing happen to me and I still struggle over things that I wish I didn't.

    Personally, given your age, the idea of a crush is a bit cute, but you're a little young for anything serious. I would recommend waiting until you truly know what you're doing. (And, believe me, you may not see it now, but you will when you're older.) But, if you really do want to find out, you need to remember that boys and girls both feel things. Boys aren't aliens, they aren't emotionless, and they aren't always just  dumbieheads.  You'll find it funny later on in life from how nervous you had gotten over a crush So honestly, just be straight forward. If you need a topic starter to bring it up, joke about old rumors that used to spread about you both.
