I've come to the conclusion that there are many ups and downs to being a homeschooler. So today I'm going to do something fun and post all the pros and cons of Homeschooling from my experience. *rubs hands* If any Non-Homeschoolers are reading this, just bear with me, Okay?
PRO: You get to do school at home.
CON: You get pretty tired of your dining room table pretty fast.
PRO: You are never in school for more than a few hours because you never have breaks
CON: You think being in school until 2:00 completely takes away your day.
PRO: You're out of school before any one else in the neighborhood because you don't have random snow days or holidays. Ever.
CON: You never have snow days or Holidays.
PRO: All of your classmates, teachers and principles are family.
CON: All of your classmates teachers and principles are family.
PRO: You can do school whenever you want. You could start at 6:00 AM and no one would mind! (though who does that? Honestly.)
CON: Sometimes this means working on weekends..... yeah.
PRO: You can double up so your family can take a day off for field trips or shopping or picnicking.
CON: You can never call in sick for school. Ever. Unless you have, like, the flu. Then please, do math in bed.
PRO: You get to tell people you're homeschooled and watch their faces.
CON: You have to answer publicschoolers questions. (Are you allowed to listen to music??)
PRO: You can use cassette players and listen to the old radio shows and no one will judge.
CON: Actually, yeah, there's the judge-y but you can just toss your head and say, “Hey, I'm homeschooled.” and they'll leave you alone. But they might laugh.
PRO: You can read more books in a week than most publicschoolers do in a month, or even a year
PRO: We tend to be geeks
CON: Not everyone likes Geeks. but oh well, sucks for them.
CON: Publicschoolers can be super rude.
PRO: But it's all cool, I'm pretty sure they're just jealous.
CON: Jealous people love to hate.
PRO: You don't have to leave the comfort of your bedroom (or your pajamas) to do school
CON: Well I have to change my pajamas but I can stay in my room.
PRO: On the last day of 12th grade I'm doing school in my PJ's. Because why has everyone done that but me??
CON: Doing school while the kids outside get to sled. What is with that?
PRO: You have some of the greatest friends ever, and they're all homeschooled too.
CON: You have no idea how regular schools works.
PRO: That last CON is more like a PRO but I'm running out of CON's.
PRO: MOVIE. NIGHTS.
CONS: “What's an Iphone?”
PRO: A childhood without technology. Seriously. I can't thank my parents enough for giving me that. (Does that make the other CON a PRO too?)
PRO: Game nights.
CON: Candy Land. (I'm getting desperate with Cons here.)
PRO: Family outings.
CON: ….. Diagramming.
PRO: Seriously some of the greatest field trips ever.
CON: never eating out.
PRO: You get all home cooked meals and they're the best anyway.
CON: You don't get to have Soda.
PRO: But who likes Soda all that much anyway? Okay, cancel that last CON. Soda is only good on occasion.
CON: Okay. I've got nothing.
PRO: The PRO's far out way the CON's.
TADA!!!! I hope you all enjoyed that!! Oh and I've decided to save my Tolkien post until November because my family is going to do an LOTR Marathon and I want to save it for that weekend.... maybe even do a blog part! (haha!) So.... yeah. Sorry. It's been mad here. I hate being the oldest at home. It really sucks. On the upside I am LOVING my research paper!!
WHO'S GONNA DO NANO???
