One of the best things about being a homeschooler is that I get to be my own teacher, most of the time.
So, while other people get to wake up and go to school and do whatever their teachers tell them to?
I get to wake up, take a 3 mile walk at 6:00, come back by 7:20, do whatever I want until 8, eat breakfast, clean my room (always. My room has this... attraction to dirt. And grime. And stuff. My room can be perfectly clean, and in 12 hours it's covered with D&D books, regular books, school books, notebooks, clothes, fabric scraps, tape, pins, notebooks, scissors, paper snips, notebooks, dog hair, random-textbooks-from-classes-I-took-several-years-ago, notebooks, dictionaries, letters, shoes, notebooks, my camera, my phone, my ipod, notebooks, speakers, and all in all, other junk.)...
and then?
Decide what school I'm going to do each day!

True, I have sort of a schedule. I do math on Tuesdays, but not on Friday, I do geology on Wednesday, but not on Saturday, I do piano every day, I write on Saturdays, Sundays, Wednesdays, Fridays, but not on Mondays, I do literature on every day except Thursday, Friday, and Tuesday... And so on.

But I usually get to decide what I'm going to do. :)

For example, today this is what I wrote down on the second white board in our school room:

   Math - exercise 5.6
   World History
   OYAN Other Worlds
   Piano: Teach Ken
   Western Civ

See? That's what school I'm doing today. I've already practiced piano, which is why it isn't on there.

On to do exercise 5.6



I do something similar!

Yay homeschooling!

Also, that magical thing where your room gets messy in five seconds, MINE TOO. Maybe we have poltergeists or something? No? Darn.

Oh and can't wait to see you, probably at GS it starts pretty soon I think!
