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.

Later,
Simon

     I am your friend and I know you from a long time , Nisha. You are a nice girl. Just remember​ one thing that there is beauty in imperfection​.  Don't feel afraid to think or express anything you feel just because you think it's dumb . It may be dumb for some but it also may be cool for some. We all are different in our own way and that's what makes us feel unique. Just be yourself even if you think it's dumb because it will never make you regret and always get you the right ones in your life :):):):):)

    I don't know where else to post this, but note that this isn't related to my friends. In a small way it is but it isn't.. anyway, my problem is I've read a lot and observed people around me. I've realised the kind of mistakes they make and have learnt how to avoid some of them. I've learnt from my childhood stupidity and sillyness too, and from the past two years. But I did something that many others must have done. Problem is I feel dumb now. Not because I think myself to be superior to others but because, it's simple for them to get over it but for me it's hard. I don't want to mention what I did but I had really strong feelings and one slight word can ruin my mood in that case. I've realised my problem is that I want to be perfect and to not make mistakes. But I know that mistakes help us learn. And I just need to relax but don't know how to. I want to, unlike people who give up and submit to the darkness - no offsense. But I really, really want to. It's been tearing me apart. Please, if anyone can help me, please please help.

    I'm in 8th grade and I ride the bus with a friend of mine. He's in 6th grade. Recently, I've had all of these weird feelings and I think I like him. He's so young but he already has a girlfriend. I couldn't get in the way of that. PLUS, everyone would make fun of me. I can't tell anyone this because I know I'll be judged.  What do I do?  :rain  :mad
