It's time for me to bit the bullet and talk about the cons of homeschooling. This is something that many homeschoolers don't want to talk about, at least not to anyone outside their community. As homeschoolers, we can sometimes feel as though we're constantly defending our right to homeschool or be homeschooled. We're explaining to… Continue reading Four Downsides of Homeschooling
Thinking of homeschooling but not sure if you're up to the task? Good news, you are. Coming from a 19-year-old highschool grad with no children to speak of, this may not be very convincing. But after spending years watching both of my parents homeschool me and my four younger siblings and observing the way my homeschooled… Continue reading So you think you can homeschool?
Hey guys, I'm back to talk about homeschooling and how hard it is. I know, a homeschooler admitting that homeschooling is hard work? It can't be real.

Of course, there's guidelines.… Continue reading What is homeschooling?

As most people who know me will attest, I'm very passionate about homeschooling.

Friends is one of those TV shows that, if you haven't watched it at this point in your life, you've heard far too much about to ever be willing to watch. It's like jumping onto a boat super late, after it's already full of other people (fans), who will constantly remind you that they watched… Continue reading Analysis of a TV show: Friends
One of our upcoming assignments is something called "Who Am I." It should be a pretty easy question to answer, right? For me, it's not. Over the years, I've derived my identity from different things. I am the oldest of five kids. In my earlier years, I was a homeschooler.I was the artistic one. I… Continue reading Who am I- through my writing
Hey everyone, as some of you may know, I write poetry on occasion. Since this week's blog challenge is to post whatever we feel like, I thought I would share some of this with you. It's not great by any standards. I do not know how to write poetry. But I hope you enjoy it… Continue reading Poetry, poetry and more poetry
