Simon's Blog - October 9, 2007

October 9, 2007

One Thanksgiving down, one to go (though I'm still so full of turkey I don't really want to think about it). Toronto was fun. We didn't see as much stuff as I wanted to because we were so busy hanging with the fam, but I'm cool with that.

We did go to the CN Tower, which was the tallest free-standing tower for 35 years, until it was beaten by a building in Dubai just last month. I never thought I had an issue with heights, but I seriously thought I was going to pass out when we got to the top. Yikes! Thankfully I managed to hold it together and didn't embarrass myself.

It was great to see my cousins. They seem to be settling into their new life in Canada pretty well. I was surprised that it hardly seems different at all up there, except their money is brightly colored and everyone has a slightly funny accent. It made me think that I'd really like to do more traveling. Not just four hour drives with my parents, but to countries where the culture is entirely different than ours. Maybe I'll backpack around Europe when I finish high school. Or maybe I'll go to South East Asia like Leonardo DiCaprio did in The Beach.

So what about all of you? Do you dream of traveling the world, or are you already doing it? What [KWLINK 2458]cool places have you been to? and let me know. I'd love to hear all about your plans/adventures.

Hope you all had a great Columbus Day while I was having my early turkey dinner!

Later,
Simon

    Well I say don't deal with your friend I mean comfort her and all but if she's doing all that I would leave her alone let her parents deal with it you guys are just kids ending your life isn't the solution and you seem like a really caring person but ####### help from the internet isn't to answer Tell her parents or let her see to see an therapist or something But don't let other people drag you down into depression

    I have 3 close friends at school. Outside of school I have one. I'm soon going up to Secondary school. 2 of my friends, Kathryn and Sophie, are quite mean to me and others in the class. They call me names and push me around. I don't like it but afraid to tell them. They are also quite rude to teachers. When it's just me and Kathryn it's fine and I am wondering if it's just Sophie making an impression. I go to a small school (81 pupils) and making friends is hard for me. Please help!!
