I don't have to sit and wait for a bell to ring, only to go to another room and repeat.
I'm also able to study things that aren't in normal school curriculums.
I have an education specialist (which is basically like a teacher) who checks in with me every month to make sure I'm on track.Even if you're really close, you have moments where you think you're just that homeschooled kid they know.When I get little attacks of HFS, I call my friends to talk about our days and make plans.I spent the night with people I really enjoyed, homeschooled and public schooled alike. As for college, I'm not sure what my path regarding that will be yet.I also have access to a much wider range of sports than the average high school student. But because I'm with a charter school, I have grades and standardized test scores, like any other kid.My mom has very little to do with my education at this point, and I'm set to graduate a year early."But what about prom/sports/COLLEGE?! Even though I don't go to school, it doesn't mean I don't participate in traditional high school activities.Last year, my friends and I put on our own prom, and it was amazing., with the frighteningly geeky genius who wins the spelling bee and the backwoods kids who are more than a little sheltered.Homeschoolers are almost like unicorns: You think you know a lot about them, but if you're like the vast majority of teenagers, you've never actually met one.-You refer to immature guys as “frogs” thanks to Superchick.-Every Thanksgiving your extended family makes jokes about your wedding day, seriously doubting that will ever happen, and asking about your non-existent boyfriend.
