Ask A Homeschooler

Spoiler alert: adulthood is 96% of you going “well, I hope this is how it works and I’ll keep doing it till someone yells at me”

rainbowsandallthatjazz said: Is homeschooling easier than public school ? Is it fun? As a shy person would it be the best choice for me?

The difficulty of homeschooling truly depends on which curricula or program you decide to use.  However, the absence of peer pressure, bullying, or social anxiety definitely makes it easier to study and focus.

Homeschooling certainly can be fun!  While it does take application and work, being able to do school in your pajamas or drink hot chocolate while studying or watch historical movies and count them as schoolwork certainly does add an element of fun. :)  Being able to go to the movies or go bowling during normal school hours, simply because you can, is also fun.  Because with homeschooling, you can always make your school up later.

You and your parents will have to choose what’s best for you, but I don’t think homeschooling is any kind of a problem for a shy person.  As I mentioned earlier, it takes away peer pressure, which can be helpful for a shy person.  However, since you are shy, you want to make sure you don’t become a hermit.  I would recommend checking out local homeschool support groups to connect with, or taking extracurricular classes.  Here is an article on homeschoolers and socialization, which might help.

I hope my answer helped you! :)  Thanks for asking.

The reason why old books have such a distinct smell is because hundreds of organic compounds in the pages break down over time and release chemicals that smell like almond, vanilla, and grass. Source

I knew there was a reason why I liked smelling old books. ;)

Thursday morning notes to self:

•What’s important is not what other people do/say, but rather how you react to their words and actions.

•Be kind. Be brave. Be understanding. There is a world of hurt out there, and it’s not my place to judge or assume.

•People come and people go. Both are good things, crucial to growth.

•Be patient with yourself and with others. We’re all on our way to who we are.

SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT

So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

I will never not reblog this
