July 3, 2007

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

    last friday, i was home alone, my dad went to am AA meting and chiz, so i was alone for a couple og hours, i mean yeah i'm depressed, i cut, i have suicidal thoughts daily.......it's hard hurting inside..and just to see everyone pass you by like you're nothing, people judging you without knowing you. i also have social anxiety, and it really bothers me at school, so i try to walk fast in the halls, and i'm tense a lot. people criticize me once in a while.... ive been through some stuff, i've seen my mom abused infront of me thousand of times..........it's just hard...life. i'm scared to deal with it. so i made a noose, tried to attempt. long story short, my friend called the police, i got sent to the ER......my dad doesn't trust me alone for a mere 3 seconds, cause he thinks as soon as he turns his back i'll cut myself, or hang myself

    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?  Ello and I thinks he likes you and feels your the close enough friend what he can joke around with. He doesnt want to offend you or upset you and that shows he cares about your feelings. Me advises is take your time and see how your friendship develops.  If it feeels natural to ask him does he like you then ask him and theres no rush :) Good luck :love
