I started this WordPress to write, and talk about my life as a teenager. Only, I’ve realized in every single blog I’ve written so far, I always seem to try and keep hush hush about my school life (and school is a pretty big part of my life right now). And the reason for that, is because I honestly just have never felt comfortable talking about my education. Confused? Allow me to explain myself a little better aha.
I have an awesome education. In fact, out of the state, it’s one of the most highest rated and successful schools (not intending to brag) in the district. So clearly that’s not where my troubles exist. No. My troubles exist due to some rather petty stereotypes that ‘certain’ people have been enforcing with their comments;
“oh. you’re homeschooled…”
“being homeschooled is for ‘special’ people.”
“Homeschoolers have no friends.”
“Every homeschooler is awkward and weird.”
“You must have no life outside of your home.”
“People who are homeschooled have no social skills.”
NO! JUST STOP! Just being honest, you literally have no flippin idea what the heck you’re talking about. Being homeschooled is not for losers. It’s not for people with special needs (and even if people with disabilities do use it, stop being a jerk. oh my goshhh). You aren’t ‘weird’ or ‘unsocial’ if you don’t go to mainstream school. So can you just stop being so nasty? Even if you aren’t intending to be, just don’t say anything. Because it literally hurts, alright..?
So yeahhh, you probably have guessed by now that I’m homeschooled. Well, you aren’t completely wrong or right there. Hahaha
You see, I don’t have to go to my school (the actual school building is in another state haha) to attend class. No. All I have to do is flip open my computer! I still have teachers that I can see and talk to, I still have classes (Heck, I get into HUGE trouble if I miss a class), homework, exams (I have to sit the exams under an official supervisor – usually a police officer so I can’t cheat!), reports, assignments, friends (class mates), and activity days.
So you see, I still go to school just like you do. Just not exactly like you do.
. . .
Glad we could clear all that up. Now you (the people who made the stereotypes) can stop saying things you know nothing about! Yaaaaay hahaha.
(This post wasn’t meant to hurt or offend anyone. Just trying to help ‘some’ people understand my situation a little better!)
Stay Happy & Godbless!
