When I was a child
When I was a child, I would go to school just like everyone else. When I turned 14 I started my first day of homeschool. At first, I hated it. I missed my friends and the ability to socialize with people my age. However, as I got more and more used to getting my education in the home environment, I began to love it. It was actually pretty awesome. I got to go to class in my pajamas, I didn’t have to spend 30 minutes on the school bus each way. I didn’t have to deal with other students hassling me just because they’re unhappy with themselves or their own life. Overall, I really began enjoying the entirety of homeschooling. Best of all, I got to adjust the thermostat to whatever I wanted. I wasn’t forced to deal with the school’s excessive use of air conditioning. If I wanted to dress lightly and turn on the heating for a couple of days, I absolutely could… and it is wonderful. There are some days when I want to do the opposite too. I’ll just feel like wearing a sweatshirt and turning on the A/C to counter my warm apparel. It’s fantastic. I love the freedom and the ability to do as I please. I do miss being able to socialize but my tutor isn’t all bad. She went through schooling herself so she knows all about the unnecessary drama and mishaps that happen in public schools. It was because of her reasoning that I actually really bagan loving being home schooled.
