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

Or you could be more social with other family. The only way to beat being unsocial in big groups is to put yourself into the situation and learn. You could actually have a great time :)Just relax, be yourself. Ask questions. People love to talk about themselves so ask lots. It'll keep conversation going and you'll learn about possible later conversation topics. Also smile and be friendly. Make small talk. Remember you're there to celebrate a happy time in someone's life. You might not like it but it's their big day, one of the biggest in their life. And your dad and sister are going so you could always stick around them if socializing doesn't work. Sorry for late reply! ^-^ Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it. Problem is, only my sister has anything to wear and my dad is fretting over something that will match, but I think that was just sorted out. I'm picky over what to wear and I'm not aloud to wear boots or leggings, which I practically live in. Though I'm probably only going to stay for a few hours since the dog's not able to go to the kennel right now.

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!
