Sorry for that unannounced hiatus since AAWC… And sorry for the other unannounced hiatuses I’ve taken since the start of this year. The truth is, I bummed for post ideas. I have no idea what to write about.
I need your advice: what blog posts would you like to see from me, and should I change my blog name? I feel like My Homeschool Notebook doesn’t really represent this blog anymore. I have no idea what posts I am writing on this blog, and I think AAWC just gave an excuse not to write any real posts… So please comment down below your thoughts. 🙂
Let’s get on with today’s post, 7 Reactions to The Sentence, “I’m Home-schooled”.
First of all, I don’t get annoyed with all if these reactions, because a lot of them are just innocent questions asked by people who’ve never experienced home-school. But some of them just make me think: “Do these people even think before they speak?” 😛
Honestly, they make me laugh. XD
1. “I feel sorry for you because you don’t have any friends.”
*me speechless* *me wanting to scream* *me thinking in my brain just because I do school at home doesn’t mean I have no connection to actual people other than my siblings*
Actually I’ve only heard this sentence once, from my friend who asked if I was still home-schooled. It really annoyed me because she simply assumed that I had no friends. I have friends. I just don’t see them everyday to the point where I want to be around some different people once in a while.
2. “You’re so lucky.”
This one gets thrown out a lot. I’m home-schooled, therefore, I am lucky. 😛 I don’t get it…. why?*
3. “Aw….do you get to stay in your PJ’s all day??”
*and #3 is your answer
Nooo…. some homeschoolers do, and I’ve done it a few times, but seriously, it’s not smart unless you have an unlimited amount of PJ’s, or you can wash them every day…
4. “So do you get to sleep in every day?”
I prefer not to. But sometimes I actually do… shhh don’t tell anyone…
5. A reaction to me saying that I’m staying home-schooled till University: “Well someone’s living and isolated life…”
*me boiling mad but hiding it because the person saying this is my friend*
I’ve heard this once from my friend (why would he say this), and it made me not want to be his friend anymore (literally). 😛 Especially since after that, I was telling him that my other friend is good at singing and dancing and stuff like that, just telling him, and he said, “Well maybe you should go to school.”
AARGH. Just because I’m home-schooled doesn’t mean that I can’t be good at those stuff. Is he saying that to be talented I have to go to school??
6. “Do you get to start school whenever you want?”
Not whenever I want, but our schedule is still pretty relaxed. 🙂
Can you relate to any of these? I think numbers 2, 3, and 4 are the most used reactions. 😛
Do you go to public/private school? Are you home-schooled? What posts do you want to see from MHN?
