I've only been at the new job for a week and I'm already getting a day off for the Fourth of July. How sweet is that? I think I can already smell the barbeques lighting up around the neighborhood. Man, I love the summer.

Before I give you all the deets on my new job, I have to give a shout-out to Sindy for getting a sweet summer gig herself. Ha! That girl is so competitive. I swear that if I got a place on the next NASA mission, she'd already be on the space station when I got there. Nicely done Sindy! I expect a free surf rental next time I'm in California.

So my new summer job is hard work. Like, seriously hard work. The kids run around like maniacs, trying tricks they're not ready for and falling down all the time. The funny thing is that, while I'm normally not a huge fan of hard work (who is?), I really like going to work. The kids are really excited about skateboarding, which is cool, and the other instructors are nice. Most of them are a bit older than I am, but they don't treat me any different, which is cool.

I'm just trying to sort out plans for the Fourth of July now. My parents are having a barbeque, which I'll definitely stay at for a while (if I bail too quickly, my mom will freak), but then I might go to Ben's family's barbeque too. I think Vanessa is going to come to that too. What are you guys doing? !

Later,
Simon

    The perfect friend would always be there to support you when you have a problem, and will offer to help. The perfect friend is someone who guides you to doing the right things, not the wrong things. They would make the effort to talk to you, not wait for you to contact them first all the time, as friendship should be a 50-50 relationship. They would stay your friend for years, not leave you as soon as they find someone 'cooler'. They won't act different around others to impress them and leave you. They would listen to you just as much as they tell you things. They would turn to you as their first choice, not their reserve choice. But most importantly, the perfect friend would be someone who always makes you happy to be with.

    You want someone who cares, understands and will be there for you, and not just when you're down. You want someone who makes you smile and laugh at 3 am and you have to try not to giggle in class because of something that happened a weeks ago. Everyone fights, but you don't want someone who you constantly fight with and who makes you feel down or drops your self-esteem. If someone bothers you to do bad stuff, walk the other direction and don't take in the negative force. I'm the type of person that takes people in for who they are, I care and listen and try my best to make them laugh and be happy. I have gotten mixed with bad friends as in talking me into negative things, constantly making me feel down, ditching for other people, insulting other friends. I need to change how I act, I seem to annoy and bother people a lot. And possibly I care too much, I also at times understand too little. I get attached to easily and hurt easily. I don't know what else you asked so imma end this now xD

    Describe the perfect friend in your opinion.  In what ways are you a good friend? What do you need to do to become a better friend?  What do you think?

    Honestly? They aren't safe for you. Depression is difficult to overcome. Especially when people are negative about it around you. If they refuse to believe you, then there is no point trying to be friends with them again. Some people just don't accept mental problems or swear that they are being faked. I never quite understood why people don't acknowledge it, but whatever. Moving on from that, you should find friends that you don't need to pretend around - depression isn't too uncommon. Look and listen. You'll find the right people - they just proved that they weren't it. No one can go back and make a brand-new start, but anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending!  I really like the post above me, Huntress that was really good advice. I have a theory, there are two kinds of people in the world, Vampires and Sunshine. The vampires, take from us: they suck our self esteem, positive thoughts, smiles, energy.. YUCK. Sunshine on the other hand, gives and gives. You feel warmer just being around sunshine people, they lift you up, remind you about your good qualities, cheer for you and help you be your best most true self.  Here is the other thing about Vampires and Sunshine - Vampires tend to run in packs, they draw their power from taking other peoples away - and IMO they are insatiable. Sunshine people are awesome, even if you only have one in your life - it's enough.  I hope you will look around and see if you can spot the difference, I'd love to know if you have at least one Sunshine person in your life - let go of those horrible vampires, in the end you will feel much better for having made that empowered decision!!  Good Luck!
