Simon's Blog - June 19, 2007

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.

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
