Homeschooling and Education

Dear Blog Readers, Bloggers, and Followers,

It's occurred to me that I've never really blogged about being homeschooled before. In fact, I don't think I've ever mentioned that. So there. I'm homeschooled. Actually, one of the reasons why I've thankfully for blogging is because, ironically, most (if not all) of my blogging friends are homeschooled. I never thought I'd meet so many homeschooling friends! This is cool for me since I don't know many homeschool who are not local or from my state.

Most of my lovely followers are homeschool in fact. This is just another reason why I am so glad God put blogging in my life.

I do like homeschooling. It has its ups and downs though. No education is perfect. To tell you the truth, recently, I've been feeling like I would rather go to public or private school, mostly because I feel like I'm missing out on the social things. I've always been shy, and I feel like part of that is because I spend a LOT of time at home. (For a lot of my life anyway) It wasn't till this year when we started going to YHOP  and texting when I really started making more friends.

But after watching this video, for like to hundredth time, I realized I should be proud of being homeschooled.I REALLY LIKE Blimey Cow and this video has to be my favorite. Actually, most of the public school kids I meet, want to be homeschooled.

There was a time when I didn't think the first thing about popular music. (Christian and secular) I didn't know anything about the culture. But now that I do know, (a lot in fact), I realize that those days were a lot better.  I realize now that the culture is not cool! And yes, I do agree. It would be like heaven if we didn't know who Lady Gaga was. (Lately, instead of her, its Miley Cyrus) Haha.

Besides that, I want to talk about education. I've noticed, through the years, that most of my friends and family don't really like school. It just isn't them. It's me too. I hear my friends talking about how they hate math and science. Don't get me wrong. I'm not a big fan of it myself. But while I was pondering this, I started thinking about all the kids in other countries who can't learn because they don't have the resources. I thought about all the kids that would love to learn, but they can't because for various reasons.

It's sad to think about, but it also makes me thankful. A lot of kids would do anything to have the education I have. I want to tell you right now, whether you're in public, private, or homeschool, you are blessed. The things you learn every day is the information that God thought of himself. (Expect if you're in public school and they teach about Evolution) He is going to use those things in your life.

So the next time you're doing your science, feeling bored out of your skull and wishing for something else to do, think of that.

In Christ,
