Father's Day is always a great holiday. Not because I particularly enjoy buying Dad yet another wrench or golf-themed mug, but because it means summer vacation starts in mere days. Score!

I start my new job the Monday after summer vacation starts. I'm starting to get really nervous about teaching kids to skateboard. Just because it's something I can do doesn't mean that it's something I can teach, does it? Still, I'm going to shadow another instructor for two days before I'm left alone with the kids. It didn't really occur to me right away, but there's a serious babysitting element to this gig. I hope I don't do something stupid, like swear in front of the kids or something. That would get me in serious trouble.

Vanessa isn't trying to get a job this summer (I guess her allowance is bigger than mine) so she's kind of annoyed that I'm going to be working all the time. Whatever. She can't seriously expect me to turn down a job this good. She can be totally needy sometimes. Shhh... don't tell her I said that!

A bunch of kids are trying to organize an end of year prank at the school, but haven't come up with any ideas that are totally stupid (or totally illegal) yet, so Ben and I have been brainstorming... we're sort of at a loss. Do you have and let me know.

Later,
Simon

    Hi there! My most important advice would be to be yourself! live your life! do the things you want to do. If you've moved past what happened with your feelings for one another, just go and enjoy your time. If things are weird, it'll be because of her, not you. Stay positive and calm and I'm sure you'll have fun!   Hope you have a good time!

    I think that rubber band bracelets are totally in right now. And they are easy to make on a loom! Head scarves are also in as well. Hope you found this helpful!

    Wow! This sounds so frustrating! Maybe talk to your mom about what's going on. Ask her why she's doing it. She might just be worried about your safety online. More and more there are unsafe people talking to kids on the internet. I'm sure your mom just has your best interest at heart. See if you two can agree on how to keep you safe online!   Good luck!

    One thing that I have noticed is that a lot of people seem to think they should have a boyfriend or a girlfriend as soon as possible, but they don't need to until its the right time just for them. You don't have to be forced to fall in love with someone if you don't want to. Let love come in its own time. And to keep away from any problems with her if she may become mean, try just forgetting about what happened and treat her like a normal person you know, and try to avoid any arguments. If she becomes mean, maybe just walk away for a bit. And if she is still being mean, maybe confront her asking what you have ever done to make her this way towards you. If you have done nothing, then she will have no reason to be mad at you so its not your problem she is being mean so you don't have to be stressed about it. I hope this helps! :)
