August 28, 2007

The last week of summer vacation is racing by and my mom is on my case to go shopping with her for back-to-school supplies. Ugh... here we go again!

This summer sure has been a busy one. I had a wicked job, and they've asked me to come back next summer, which is really cool. I also made a lot of new friends who I'm going to try to stay in touch with. And then there's the Vanessa fiasco, which was really lame.

Being in charge of a bunch of kids this summer (at the skateboarding camp) was an interesting experience. I think it's going to be hard to go from being the person who is in charge, back to being the kid who gets sent to the principal's office. Maybe this is the start of a new, more mature me. Or maybe not...

So I guess I'd better get cracking on my back-to-school shopping. I'm not much of a shopper, but if I want to impress the ladies this year, I should probably show up to school in something cooler that last year's raggedy jeans. What's on your must-have list this September? Any fashion advice for a guy who is allergic to fashion? !

Later,
Simon

    Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)

    Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.

    Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D

    There is a slight issue with that. I am rarely comfortable talking with children my own age.
