Oh man. I am in so much trouble. Like, hiding-in-my-room kind of trouble. Who knew that dyeing my hair blue would send my mom into such a rage?

So here's the story. You know how I've been having some sort of mid-teens crisis of late. I keep whining about how I'm bored and directionless. So I thought, "Hey, if I can't change the big things, I can change the little ones." Then I dyed my hair blue. I seriously never considered that my mom would even care. I mean, it's my hair. Aren't teenagers supposed to do stuff like this? It's not like I work in a bank or something.

Mom was anything but cool. She even started yelling at me in Spanish (and that's when you know you're really in trouble). She's getting her friend to come over and dye it back. This is so embarrassing. I tried to talk her into letting me keep it until Halloween, so I could integrate it into my costume (my brother laughed at me and said I should be a Smurf - I was thinking just a '70s style punk). It doesn't even matter, though, because my mom is so mad that she's saying I'll be lucky if I'm even allowed to go out for Halloween. Why is this such a big deal?!

Anyway, I'm still going to plan a non-blue-haired costume in the hopes that my mom mellows out once my hair is normal again. What are you guys going to be? I think I'm just going to throw together a Grim Reaper costume. It's not my most inspired idea ever, but I don't want to put in a huge effort in case I'm not allowed to go out. if your parents are as controlling as mine are when it comes to how you look.

Later,
Simon

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
