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

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
