Simon's Blog - September 25, 2007

September 25, 2007

So this is weird - did you know that Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in the beginning of October? I had no idea until my mom told me we're going to be having Thanksgiving dinner a little early this year - in Ontario!

I don't live that far from the Canadian border, but I've been to Mexico way more times than I've ever been the Great White North. In fact, I've only ever been to Canada once when I was about 10. We drove there and only stayed for the afternoon. I don't remember much about it. Anyway, this time we're going to spend the weekend with my aunt and uncle, who just moved up there after my uncle's work transferred him.

Apparently it's only going to take us about four hours to drive to Toronto and then we'll stay there for three nights. The best part is that we don't have to go to any lame Columbus Day parades this year! I guess I should Google Toronto and see what to expect there. All I know about Canada is they're a lot like us, but really into hockey. I guess I should have paid a little more attention in geography. Or did we learn about Canada at all in geography? Wow, I really wasn't paying attention.

We only have limited time to do touristy stuff because we have the big Thanksgiving dinner to do. Have any of you been Toronto? Maybe you even live there? and let me know your recommendations for what to do! I'll let you all know how it goes!

Later,
Simon

    Talk it through. Ask them out maybe? don't worry about it. It'll work out. If they like you as much as you them, you have nothing to worry about. :)

    How do I stop thinking about this guy in my school? Like seriously it's pissing me off. Every time we're in the same room, I have this uncanny awareness of where he is and what he is doing. He makes me want to watch the door of the two classes we have together whenever he enters or leaves the room, he makes me look forward to Art and Spanish and disappointed when he isn't there despite the fact I don't even talk to him much. He makes butterflies surge in my stomach and my heart pound in my ears, he makes me so nervous when I'm around him and I have to keep myself from making shaky movements. He makes me want to stare, but I don't want people to know that I care. (And great, he just made me rhyme as well).And a series of coincidences have resulted in me having to interact with him in Art. Ex). We had to draw a # out of a hat and review someone else's artwork...guess whose I got? And my teacher randomly gave us new tables-so now he sits right across from me. ...this is driving me insane. What do I do? (And I'm praying to God right now that he doesn't go on Kidzworld-if he does I hope he doesn't put two and two-oh look fantastic I rhymed again. I'm not even trying make this STOP I'm not even writing rationally anymore)

P.S if you help thanks soooo much I'm not exactly an expert on this but...why not talk it out with them? Get to know them better and figure out what you both want? I mean, you both apparently feel the same way, that's half the battle.  I can only assume you both are unsure what to do because you guys are hesitant about making a move and actually forming a relationship. I mean, I get it: relationships are scary; though I've never actually been in one, I know the thought of it can be. You're voluntarily making yourself vulnerable to another human being, you're letting someone in to your life in a way that you've never done before, a way that can leave you hurting or actually make your life better.  Humans fear the unknown and crave familiarity, and a new relationship is definitely new territory.  But just because there's the possibility of getting hurt doesn't mean you shouldn't try. Take that plunge into the unknown, let yourself fall, say Geronimo and dive into that waterfall (see what I did there?)-because you'll never know what could be unless you take a chance.
