June 19, 2007

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

    It's normal to feel jealousy, and it's not really too bad a thing unless you let it get to you and cause problems. I get jealous as hell but I try to avoid letting it affect the way I hold a conversation, for example.

    So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?

    My best friend is autistic and mild to moderate on the spectrum. He has a daily routine and obviously keeps to it.  His sister who's 18 told me about his condition. And she spoke to me about how much help he needs around the house. My friend doesn't actually need all that much help, as his autism isn't that bad compared to others I know. He mainly suffers reading people's emotions, and having the confidence to make friends and talk aloud. But his sister did complain that he was always the needy one around the house when she was younger.  What you've got to understand is that autism affects people in different ways, no autistic person is the same, and so requires a different level of work and help towards them. Your brothers didn't ask for this. They were born like that. I know how it feels though, feeling left out. And feeling like your parents don't love you. They really do. They just don't have time to express that love, which is kinda sad really.  Maybe you could get involved in helping your brothers out. Depending on how old they are, you can educate them on reading emotions, and things like that. They're great life skills. Or simply just being there for them is something you can do. Autism itself is a pretty frustrating thing for the person who has it. My friend hates it, but tries to live with it as a gift. Just a little support can go a long way.
