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!

    Dear Dish-It in the forums

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

    Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

    This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
