You can really feel summer in the air lately, can't you? I can guarantee this one is going to be a good one - I just feel really good about it. Now how am I going to come up with the cash to fund all this fun?

The school year ends in a little more than a month, which means that's how much time I have to find a summer job. Last year I worked at Vanessa's dad's ice cream stand, but I seriously doubt he'll want me back after forcing us to "break up". Shhh... it's totally on the down-low that we're still seeing each other.

My employment options are pretty much limited to all the regular summer jobs. I could flip burgers, mow lawns, or look after runny nosed children. As you could probably guess, the babysitting option is my least favorite. Maybe I could do something entrepreneurial? Though that would take a lot of effort, and I'm not exactly a fan of effort. Hmm... this is a tough call and I have less than two months to figure it out (and then convince someone to give me a job!).

I suppose the other thing I could do is just try to think of a ton of things that don't cost money, therefore eliminating the need to get a job. It's too bad most of my favorite things require money because this could be a seriously brilliant idea if I was into picking flowers and taking long walks on the beach. Besides, my mother would kill me if I didn't even try to get a job.

So what are your plans for the summer? Are you planning to get a job? Are your ideas any better than mine? !

Later,
Simon

    Well That is your choice who you want to stay with.Nobody can force you about it.When your parents see a family<a data-cke-saved-href=" lawyer, then he will ask you whom do you want to stay with and jury will decide.So dont worry .

    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 ...
